Birthday Wish List and TBB Asks

We are already knee deep in August and you know what August is? My birthday month!!! I do like to treat myself to a few things throughout the month and create a wish list for funsies. Here are a few things I wouldn’t mind having wrapped up just for me!

This Rose Gold Gorjana Lariat necklace has been on my wish list for nearly a year. I think it would go with so many things in my closet and be such a staple piece!!! It would also layer nicely with my beloved Kendra Scott necklace I wear nearly every day!

I am also obsessed with this BaubleBar Aimee Layered chain. Since it is gold, thicker and layered…it gives a completely different look than the Gorjana one!

How cute are these mules in blush??? I am in need of some new work shoes for the fall/winter and these would be perfect!

I want to get a purse that is a little easier to tote around with baby. I love don’t need to carry as much now that she is a little older and I want something I can take to work too without having to take things in and out of her current diaper bag. I think a backpack style like this or a larger tote like maybe this would be better.

How pretty is this Skippy Dip Lip Topper by Jouer?

I am obsessed with slides and these are a classic!

This shirt looks crazy cozy for the fall weekends! I could use a pop of color in my wardrobe.

Cole Haan is the only brand of flats I have found that I can wear for more than a few hours without wanting to throw my shoes in the trash. I have a pair of black ones, and I really want to get a pair of nude to wear as well. These look perfect!

I would love a fancier band for my apple watch, this rose gold one would be perfect! Love the price too!

When Andrea emailed me about TBB link up, I knew I had to participate! These are fun questions to get to know someone better and I got right to drafting my post! But then I forgot all about it when I posted about my weekend on Monday. Better late than never, I always say!

Pool, Lake or Ocean?

My favorite place is the beach, I love to listen to the ocean crashing into the shore. But from the pool. I rarely get in the ocean. If I do, it is maybe ankle to knee deep. Never more. The pool is more my jam.

Camping, cottage or hotel?

I am so not an outdoor person. I never say never, but I seriously cant see myself ever thinking that camping sounds like a good idea. Give me all the indoor amenities and air conditioning. Please and thank you! A cottage or hotel suits me fine.

Favorite ice cream flavor?

Cookie Dough

Pj’s, Nightgown, T-Shirt/Shorts or Birthday Suit?

Usually shorts and a tshirt or short cotton nightgowns.

Fave Summer Beverage

Fruity beers and ciders or a mojito. At the beach, I do love a good pina colada! Cant believe I didn’t even have one this year.

Would you rather be hot or cold?

Cold cold cold. Please give me the cold! For someone who lives in the deep south, you would think I would be used to the heat. I hate it! You can always add layers, but you can only take so many off. I am a fall/winter girl.

Sandals with heels or flats?

These days you will find me in flats 98% of the time. I also appreciate a good wedge.

Shorts or skirts?

Neither! I were dresses in the spring and summer or pants in the winter.

Sit in the sun or the shade?

Unless it is in the upper 60’s or low 70’s, you will find me in the shade. See above. I hate sweating.

Water, tea or soda?


Fave summer fruit, vegetable?

Pineapple! Nothing beats a pineapple in peak season! I also love fresh ears of corn.

Sunrise or sunset?

I love both, but if I have to pick….sunset. Alabama has some of the prettiest sunsets I have ever seen.

Bike, ride or walk?

Alabama is not so not walkable. Not even our downtown area, so ride it is.

Winery or brewery?


Garden or no garden?

I do not have a green thumb, nor do I have the time.

Big summer concert or music in the park?

Music in the park, I hate crowds.

Fave cookout food?

Filet or burgers

Dine indoors or patio?

Patio, as long as it is shaded if it is too hot!

Fave summer destination? 

Our annual trip to Gulf Shores

Big theme park or local carnival?

Again, I hate crowds. I don’t really care for either. Though I really really really want to go to Disney World!

Drinks blended or on the rocks?


Popsicle or freezie flavour of choice

You know what I miss? Pudding pops!

Hot Dog or Hamburger?

    Gosh we are SO alike! My answers would have been the same. Ha! I hate the heat, which is tough shit considering I’m in the south. Feel like I’m melting daily. Bring on the cold! And I love your picks! Those blush mules are gorgeous. That Jouer lip product does.not.budge. I wore it on Friday and still had it on 15 hours later!

    Happy birthday! Don’t forget your free frappuccino and Sephora swag, among other things. 🙂

    Happy Birthday Month!! Woohoo, you should treat yourself everyday to one thing. haha Celebrate all month long. I hear ya about the heat, I hate it. The problem up here is the building are all older and the AC sucks. While I have central air, I know alot of people who don’t and I don’t understand how they live during the summer. It’s just too humid. I bet the AC is much better in your neck of the woods.

    Yayyyyy birthday month, and yes to all things rose gold! Can’t wait to see which goodies you score next week! Well birthday twin, the similarities between us are uncanny, but I just can’t get on board with cold weather. I moved from CT to FL to escape it. Give me the heat! 😀

    Seriously — I was just telling B I wanted a pair of Adidas slides. I LOVE THEM! And also those necklaces. They are so pretty!

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston August 9, 2017 at 2:20 pm

    I love that band and might get it to match my watch 🙂 Yay for birthday presents – let me know how you like the backpack if you get it, I’ve been toying with the idea of getting one! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  • Reply Carly August 9, 2017 at 3:07 pm

    You are making me obsessed with that layered necklace too, lol. It’s so pretty! Looove pineapple and corn too!

  • Reply kristen August 9, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    birthday month! hope you get all the things! that top looks so comfy and cute. i will respectfully disagree with your adding more layers in the cold haha, i could add an entire wardrobe to my body and still be cold, but the heat feels glorious! i totally want to do this quiz thingy.

  • Reply StephTheBookworm August 9, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    I’m right there with you. I hate the heat, need to be in the shade, and could never imagine wanting to camp. I’m not an outdoorsy person haha!

  • Reply Alexandra August 9, 2017 at 5:21 pm

    Happy birthday month! Oh I agree. Heat, summer, tons of sun are all my enemies. Ugh. I cannot handle the heat. At all. I love the beach, and the ocean though. I love to get in and float around. Probably comes from being a land-locked KS girl. hehe Flats all the time for me too! 🙂 I love that striped shirt! 🙂 XO – Alexandra

    Oh my goodness yes! Pudding pops! I really love that first necklace & that top! I’ve also really been missing my ADIDAS slides lately. Probably because my students all have them & it makes me miss how much I loved mine in HS haha.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo August 10, 2017 at 10:19 am

    HOLY COW>>>>> I’m amazed. Those ribboned mules – I had a pair of those when I was in high school in black!!!!!! I cant believe those are back!!!

  • Reply Dani August 10, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    Haha, Blue’s birthday was last month and she had a new wristband for her Apple watch at the top of her list too! That was is gorgeous! I haven’t tried Cole Haan flats but I do need new ones, so I’ll have to check those out! I’m a hard no on gardening, I’ve killed succulents lol! And not surprised that you’re a cold person- the humidity in the South kills me. Happy birthday month!

  • Reply Danielle August 10, 2017 at 7:39 pm

    I love those flats. I have a pair in black and they are the best. I love the color of that lip gloss. So pretty. I love everything rose gold so I hope you get that watch band.
