Hey guys! Guess what!?! IT’S MY BIRTHDAY MONTH! Yay yay yay! My birthday is September 30, and I will be 26 this year! Woah! How did that happen??? I can’t wait to celebrate! I’m not someone who celebrates all month long but definitely for at least 2 to 3 days. I’ve got lots of friends and family so I make sure to celebrate with everyone, and sometimes we can’t make it all happen on the day.
I love this time of year, and it all starts with September! Football season is back and it’s my birthday month! Then, it’s Halloween, Thanksgiving, and BAM, hello Christmas! Such a special time! I always love to make a birthday wish list! Who doesn’t?! And because of the time of the year my birthday is, whatever I don’t get, I just carry on over to my Christmas wish list. But not gonna lie, September kind of snuck up on me, and I’m a little less prepared than usual. When Ryan asked me last week to send him my birthday wish list, I was like, “What? Oh yeah!” I think that’s a sign of getting older (a pretty sad sign if you ask me…)
So anyway, as I was making my list I thought I’d share with y’all what things are on my mind. And remember this is a wish list. A girl can dream, right? Some items are super affordable and others are a tad pricier but why not? You’ve heard the song, “Go girl, it’s ya birthday!”
Okay, let’s talk about the goods.
one | Anyone that is close to me knows I need a new phone. I dropped my phone about four months ago, and the screen is destroyed. Not just cracked, the image is constantly fuzzy and shaky. It gives me a headache looking at it! So definitely need a new iPhone! Especially to take all my cute blogging pictures! 🙂
two | For those of you who have been keeping up with me, you know I’ve been having serious adult acne skin issues. I’m going to a new dermatologist and on all new kinds of medicines. But, with that comes the very dry skin from the treatments. Some days my makeup will just start flaking off my face. Yuck! And for someone who normally is super oily, my skin is in shock! A nice hydrating mask would definitely help ya girl out!
three | I can’t explain how much I love fig trees! They are my favorite indoor decorative plant! But sadly, I don’t own one. Anytime Ryan and I are watching TV or are out shopping and I see one, I immediately point to it and yell, “fig tree!” Don’t believe me? Ask him! We have this empty corner in our living room next to the TV that would just be perfect for a fig tree! This is my dream fig tree, but a more affordable option is this one.
four | I desperately need a full length mirror! Whenever I’m trying to see if an outfit looks good, I have to grab a step stool and stand on it to look in the bathroom mirror. And even then, I can’t see the full outfit from my head to my shoes. We went from a house that had two built-in full length mirrors to a house with none. Y’all, the struggle is real!
five | When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a pair of slippers! I’m always cold so I never walk around our house without slippers or socks on. These are super cute and look super comfy!
six | I’m a beauty fanatic. That’s no secret! And I love trying out all new products. Charlotte Tilbury is a brand I always hear people raving about, especially their lipsticks, but haven’t tried them out yet. I love this lip kit, and the Pillow Talk shade is the perfect pinky nude for everyday.
seven | I love all things New Orleans so it’s no surprise that I’ve been wanting a pair of Krewe sunglasses for over two years. They are definitely an investment though. But they are so hip and stylish. I just love them! I’m not someone who owns multiple pairs of nice sunglasses. I normally have one pair and wear them everyday, for every occasion. So I know these babies would be put to good use.
eight | I love skincare products, and even love doing my skincare routine more! It’s my time to relax and have a little “me” time. You’ve probably heard that it’s beneficial to keep certain skincare products cold, like moisturizers, serums, toners, and even masks. It not only extends the product’s shelf life, but it also delivers a cooling effect to your skin, which helps reduce under eye-bags, calms inflammation and can tighten the look of pores. Talk about the spa treatment at home! This baby mini-refrigerator can sit on your vanity so all of your products are easily accessible.
nine | Another beauty product. Are you shocked?! While I’m trying to fight adult acne, ya girl is also trying to fight the aging process. Jade rollers are perfect for helping with that! Made from solid jade stone, they help decrease puffiness and under-eye circles, and even minimize the look of fine lines.
ten | Since I started this whole blogging journey I have found that a ring light is a necessity! Especially when shooting photos indoors. Right now if I shoot inside, I put my makeup mirror on a little stand and have to angle my phone against it. It’s definitely a site to see LOL! So I know I would get a lot of use out of this.
I hope you all are having a wonderful week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
