Happy Monday guys!! As my 32nd birthday is just around the corner, I thought I’d share with you some summery-type things that I wouldn’t mind receiving for my birthday this year. I always enjoy these kinds of posts and I think it’s important to dream about and wish for things even if we know they may not come to us immediately. I also like the fact that this may inspire some gift ideas for someone in your life – or yourself – during the summer season. So sit back, sip on some iced coffee (or ice water because man, it’s hot!) and let’s get started…
I’m thoroughly in love with all the colors in this set! The array of rosy shades would be so perfect for any summer activity and the darker tones can certainly carry over into autumn. Also, you all know by now that I love pink!
I was so pleased when I happened upon these bracelets a couple months ago and even more so when I discovered they come inscribed with a few of my favorite quotes as well as one-word wonders like “gratitude” which make for the perfect daily reminders! Which is your fave?
I’ve been on the hunt for a backpack that’s durable, unisex, chic-but-not-trendy PLUS kid-friendly and I think I’ve finally found everything I’m looking for in the one pictured above. We’re more active than ever as it’s summertime so being able to stick a whole family’s worth of items into something other than my purse is a must!
I’m also in the market for a new printer as my current Canon (which is still on my desk for no reason btw) has officially given out on me. This is pretty much an upgraded version of the one I have and it’s such a necessary item as we print photos, schoolwork, coloring sheets, tickets, emails, important paperwork, work work and so much more!
I’ve wanted a pair of wireless Beats for years and this year is no exception. As I inherited my dad’s love of quality sound when it comes to listening to my favorite music, I really can’t imagine owning anything less than these headphones. And aren’t they gorgeous in gold?!
Speaking of gorgeous, this mug is super cute and its greeting is a lovely little boost of confidence to go along with an early morning (and late morning and afternoon and sometimes evening) energy boost. Don’t you agree?
I know other candles exist but I’m obsessed with Bath & Body Works 3-wick candles!! This one’s scent is titled “Salted Oak Bonfire” which sounds simply amazing for a cozy post-swim summer night. I also love this chic gold sleeve for 3-wick candles which would be wonderful all year ’round.
These chokers are so petite, pretty and reasonably priced! I love that they’re simple and can easily complement a variety of outfits. I’m just hoping 32 isn’t too old to enjoy things from Forever 21… 😉 Also, I’d really like to stock up on some of their bodysuits like this one and this one. So cute!
Last but not least, I’m over the moon for this pink-infused palette. My Naked3 palette is almost all used up so I definitely need a replacement and (although I love my Naked3!) I wouldn’t mind trying something new. There isn’t a shade in this bunch that I don’t enjoy and desperately want on my eyelids!
Now that I’ve shared my wishlist with you, it’s time for the letdown… Despite allowing myself to wish for some pretty awesome stuff and taking the time to put together this post, I’ve already requested that J (or anyone else for that matter) not buy me anything other than the items we need to redo the kids’ room and bathroom. Cue the disappointing music!! But for real, I don’t mind a bit because what I really want is the peace of mind I’ll get from knowing we finished a couple projects and the kids have a fresh, fun living space in which to sleep, play and exist.
That’s all for now but I’ll be back on Wednesday with a blog-related post for the bloggers amongst us! Until then, leave me a comment and let me know if you have a July birthday too because that’d be pretty cool OR let me know your favorite thing from my wishlist so we can bond over some summery product goodness!
