The Birthday Wishlist

I love birthdays, and I love making lists. Since my birthday is coming up (April 3rd!), I thought I’d share with you my quick little wishlist I’ve been jotting down.

I’m not actually expecting much for my birthday really, because my parents helped me pay for my new laptop about a month ago (thanks again, Mom and Dad!), so that’s definitely more than enough! But it was still fun to put together a list of some special things I’ve been thinking of.

First, I’m so glad that wearing sneakers has come back in style, because I just about live in mine. I have a black pair of Nikes (I forget what style), but I’ve been lusting after a pair of the Roshe Runs that you can customize on the Nike website - I’d like the shoe to be a light gray with the check logo in turquoise. I figured the lighter colors would be perfect for a spring/summer shoe.

I’ve also had my eye on lots of simple, minimalistic jewelry. I found a pair of some simple bar studs at Forever 21 a couple weeks ago, and I’ve worn them nonstop. I found this lovely pair of rose gold (my weakness) arc earrings on Pinterest (I've since found several similar pairs on Etsy), and they look so unique yet still simple that I can’t stop thinking about them.

For beauty, I always keep a long wishlist of things to check out while shopping on my phone, but none of these items made the birthday wishlist. I’ve reserved the birthday wishlist for special items that I’d feel weird buying for myself because I’ve already attached meaning to them (am I the only one that does this?). The first thing is the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstars on the Go Palette in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I waited forever for these to launch in the US, and although all the color combinations are beautiful, this one stands out because it’s named after my favorite film. It has a bronze cream eyeshadow and an apricot lip & cheek product, and they both look gorgeous. I’ve also got the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy on my list. I could easily buy this for myself, but I already feel like it might be a contender for the lip color I’d wear when I get married (a long way away, but does anyone else fantasize about the makeup they’ll wear?), so I feel like getting it from someone else would feel more special. I've also got the Burberry Wet & Dry Silk Eyeshadow in Rosewood on there - the packaging alone makes this birthday present material, and ever since I saw the shade in an Essiebutton video I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. A girl can never have too many makeup brushes, and I've been pining after the Charlotte Tilbury Powder & Sculpt Brush and The Foundation Brush by Kevyn Aucoin for ages (both wildly expensive for brushes so I'm not anticipating receiving either of these - it's just fun to dream).

Do you have separate wishlists for birthdays and everything else?
