It’s My Birthday And I’ll Shop If I want To

Okay I know the song doesn’t go that way but since my birthday is this Saturday I thought it was the perfect time to share a few things I’ve been lusting over. Not that you should buy me a gift or anything – you totally can if you want to – this is more of a TREAT YO SELF kind of roundup. What appeals to me may also appeal to you – who knows!

I love the tradition of treating yourself to a gift on your birthday. I feel like it’s the one time of year where I can truly justify a bigger purchase on myself without feeling guilty about it. To me it commemorates the old year and celebrates the beginning of a new one. So let’s get cracking on my birthday wish list…

Nordstrom is one of my favorite online shopping destinations. Free shipping and free returns? Yes please. High on my list right now is to get a second pair of Birkenstocks – that’s how you know I’m a true grandma at heart. But ever since I broke my right foot it feels better for me to walk in sandals with a thicker sole and my current black ones have been a complete lifesaver. I’ve also wanted to add a white blazer into my wardrobe since I had one a few years ago from Zara but that one got to big for me – yay for working out! Lush is one of my favorite brands at Nordstrom and this light blue faux wrap dress is stunning for a nice summer day. Oh and I’ve been dying to get my hands on open toe dress sandals for an upcoming wedding I’m attending. Plus they’re not too high so I won’t feel like a giant. Always a plus.

Blogging related I’m eyeing up this new camera lens as I think it would be perfect for my upcoming trips this year. And as I’m transitioning into doing more youtube videos it’s just a matter of time before I get a Diva Ring Light.

I don’t have anything major on my beauty wish list (okay I lied, I really want to try the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation) because I’m trying to use what I have before I buy something new. But since summer has officially started I need to get a new sea salt spray. Like this one that everybody is raving about.

I do love me some good home decor and this blue vase is right up my alley. I’ve also recently become obsessed with ring cones as an alternative to a jewelry dish and these ones look so unique and pretty. Oh and do I need a new phone case? I think so because I can’t get enough of this glittery one and I need it in my life. And it’s on sale. Win win.
