Birthday Wishlist

It’s my birthday month and I make wishlists if I want to! I can’t believe a week from today I am going to be 33. THIRTY THREE. Why does 33 sound way older than 32?

I remember when I was younger, like 4 or 5, and people would ask me about my dad and I would tell them that he was really old. Like at least 40. In reality, my dad was in his 20’s so I am sure that made him feel real good. The day he turned 40 I joked around with him and told him that at least now when I told people my dad was at least 40, it was finally true. I don’t think he was amused. Now when my kiddo starts her guesses….it will probably be way more true than how rude I was when I was younger. It was pretty cool having young parents. Sorry dad! 40 really isn’t that old anymore. At all….

Anyways, before I have a panic attack lets move on to my list!!!

The big item I have my eyes on is the Coach diaper bag I shared with you last week. Nearly every single one of you said to get it in black so that is what I am leaning towards!

Coach Diaper Bag

Michael Kors Sandals – These have been on my radar ever since I saw my birthday twin Kate wearing them! And they are on sale right now!!! HELLO! I love a sale!

Perfume – I am not sure what perfume I want, but I haven’t had any in a long time. I keep using up free samples that I get and they aren’t exactly ones I want to purchase. I love Dolce and Gabana The One, a few of the Michael Kors scents, Coco Mademoiselle  and one of my all time favorite scents is Coach Legacy but it is hard to find and is usually just at places like Kohl’s now apparently.

Coach Legacy Women's Perfume

University of Alabama Alex and Ani Bangle – With football season starting in 27 days, how perfect is this? Plus I just love Alex and Ani!

Nordstrom Rack has the most amazing selection of marked down designer sunglasses. Basically every pair I own has come from there. I am digging these Kate Spade ones! You can’t beat that price. You just can’t.

Bobbi Brown Stone Shimmer and Beige Shimmer Shadows – These are perfect for everyday!!!

Or this Bobbi Brown palette might be a better investment with allllll the colors!

Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip

MAC Radiant Rose Concealer – I have heard amazing things about this concealer and with the little amount of sleep I get these days, momma sure could use this!

What have you had you eyes on lately?

    You better get everything on that list! I personally believe since it’s your birthday month you should get one gift a day for the month of August! Ha ha! I saw those sandals on Kate, those are so stinking cute and would be super cute on you! Happy Wednesday sweet pea!!

    My favorite perfume is the Michael Kors Sexy! I love it!

  • Reply Cara August 10, 2016 at 8:19 am

    That Bobbi Brown palette looks gorgeous! I definitely would go with the black diaper bag too. And honestly it may cost a little more but it would be worth the investment. I ended up lugging around a diaper bag until my kiddos were 2 1/2 to 3 years old. Even after they are out of diapers and bottles you still need “stuff” for them when you’re out. Happy early Birthday, you definitely do NOT look like you are in your 30’s. I seriously thought we were around the same age (26). 🙂

    Yay for birthdays! It’s so funny how sometimes one year up does sound so much older than the previous year. Love everything on your list– I haven’t repurchased that prep & prime highlight in a few years, but I think I might need to again. I loved it!

    haah love the story about your dad!! Now that I’m way closer to 30 than 25…reality is settling in that I dont like numbers lol!! I hope you get everything on your list and MORE!! xo, Biana

    Fun list . . . hope you get your wishes!!!

  • Reply Laura August 10, 2016 at 9:45 am

    I love the Michael Kors perfume!! It is my absolute favorite ever!! And I love that Alex and Ani — except for in Auburn instead of Bama. 🙂

  • Reply Heather Hines August 10, 2016 at 9:55 am

    Those sandals are so cute!! It’s my birthday month too (it’s Sunday the 14th!) and I already sent my list to my husband earlier this month. haha. It included a himalayan salt lamp, various accessories, a new yoga mat & some books 🙂
    Hope you get everything your little heart desires!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo August 10, 2016 at 10:06 am

    Those sandals remind me of an updated/fashionable version of Jellies 😉 haha

    I love those Coach bags. My SIL is a COACH nut & had to have a Coach baby bag… one of her girls now is obsessed with Coach now too. I told my brother he has to pay that bill for starting her out in life with that product 🙂

  • Reply chelsea jacobs August 10, 2016 at 10:16 am

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Just in case you need a little extra motivation for those sandals, my friend bought the version of them that was new a few seasons ago, and they have held up so well! She wears them allll the time and they still look new!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer August 10, 2016 at 10:21 am

    I have not seen that concealer somehow but I must have it! I’ve never been disappointed with a MAC product. I love that Alabama bracelet – wouldn’t mind having one of those myself! My parents were young, too, and that will not be my journey! Ha! Love your wish list!

  • Reply kristen August 10, 2016 at 10:34 am

    hahaha i did the same thing to my mum! apparently my nana used to tell us she was 21 and we believed her, and we’d tell people ‘nana is 21, mum is 36’ or something. kids 😉
    you deserve all of this and more so i hope you get it all!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! August 10, 2016 at 10:34 am

    That Coach diaper bag is AMAZINGGGGGG! I hope it’s all wrapped up for you on your birthday!

  • Reply mandie August 10, 2016 at 10:58 am

    Excellent list. I really like that Alabama bracelet…however, mine would be Wisconsin, of course. GO BADGERS! 🙂

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph August 10, 2016 at 10:59 am

    Good stuff! Except the sandals…my sweaty feet would kill me in those. LOLOL

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista August 10, 2016 at 11:01 am

    Yayyyy for birthday twins, and LOVING all of your items on your wishlist! *Fingers crossed* you get the diaper bag, and you need those MK jellies! They’re super comfy too <3

  • Reply Audrey August 10, 2016 at 11:53 am

    I’m still Team Brown-Bag 🙂 But I understand your desire to match with all the other stuff. Haha!
    Happy Birthday to you! I hope you get lots of good stuff!!

  • Reply Kay R. August 10, 2016 at 12:20 pm

    Ill be 31 this month. I feel like that sounds SOOOO much older than 30. I feel you.

  • Reply Amy @ The Crazy Wise Woman August 10, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    Love all of this! I have a bunch of Alex and Ani in the gold. Don’t forget and get them wet, they turn dingy and tarnished quickly! I kind of like the coach print better than all black, looks less diaper baggish to me:)

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders August 10, 2016 at 3:02 pm

    You have such a good birthday list going! I feel like I’m always so bad because if I want something I tend to just buy it for myself. Maybe I can do a no shopping month for like 3 months before my birthday and I’ll have a great list of lots of goodies like you! Happy almost birthday!

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky August 10, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    i don’t wear anything except eyeliner on my eyes and it has to be gel liner or pencil liner by Nars…those are the only things that stay on my lids.

  • Reply Sierra August 10, 2016 at 3:48 pm

    Happy Birthday month! Ugh, I’m not that far behind you. I’ll be 31 next month and while that isn’t old, it isn’t young either. You have some great finds here and anything on sale is my kind of shopping. Now I’m tempted with those sandals too. I have sugar lip tint and like it a lot. My lips always feel really smooth after. Beautifully Candid

  • Reply Jenna August 10, 2016 at 5:50 pm

    You know what? 33 does sound older than 32, but it sounds younger than 37, so I’m happy to swap with you. 🙂

  • Reply Emelia August 10, 2016 at 6:49 pm

    birthday month! birthday month! Love all your picks, especially the Alex and Ani bangle ( I wear mine almost every day) and those sandals. All so cute! We’re the same age 😉 although I’m a bit older by weeks…haha.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis August 10, 2016 at 9:55 pm

    Happy birthday birthday month lovely lady! Are you and Kate on the same exact day? That would be such a cute coincidence since you’re both preggo. I’ve been eyeing hose Bobbi Brown shimmer shadows for so long now but haven’t had a chance to test them at the store to see if the shimmer is my style.

  • Reply texerinsydney August 11, 2016 at 1:21 am

    Gimme all the eye palettes!
    My stepson thinks it is funny that I’m 5 years older than his dad (my husband) who is still in his 30s, while I’m in my 40s. Yea. Just hilarious. 😉

  • Reply HEATHER August 11, 2016 at 7:16 am

    Haha, that story about your dad is CUTE and perfect. Clicking on several of these to check them out!! Especially the sandals and bangle, UCF of course. That MAC looks EXACTLY like the Maybelline Lumi touch that I’ve been using for years. I haven’t tried the MAC one though so I can’t compare. Birthday month, soooo exciting!

  • Reply Amanda August 11, 2016 at 8:54 am

    Those Kate Spade sunglasses are cute! You sure have a fancy birthday wishlist 🙂

  • Reply Dorrie @ Rt 1 US 1 August 11, 2016 at 9:18 am

    Hummm I would like the diaper bag, but not to put diapers in! I’m stuck in a weird phase where I feel old, yet would not want to return to my (early) 20s either. I just don’t feel “adult” enough to be 30!!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family August 11, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    Oh my goodness, my sister would love that Alabama bangle! I am going to check that out for her! 🙂

  • Reply Kaitlyn August 12, 2016 at 5:27 am

    Yes, love the black Coach diaper bag! I always have my eye on the Marc Jacobs, Eau so fresh perfume, but I’ve yet to go and buy it. Just every time I’m at the mall, I sneak over to the counter and steal a couple sprays. I’ve been trying to use my Naked eye shadow palette more often before I invest in another palette. I have sooo many! What do you do with your old ones?

  • Reply ellesees.net August 12, 2016 at 7:46 am

    ALl lots of good things!! I think the black is a good choice too.

  • Reply Erika August 12, 2016 at 3:23 pm

    That is a great birthday wishlist! Love those sandals and all things alex and ani!

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots August 15, 2016 at 9:59 am

    Yay for August birthdays! My mom always asks me to make a wish list for my birthdays and Christmas, so fun!
