Birthday Wish List

On August 13th I will turn the big ole 35. Like any other normal 35 year old I like to make myself a list of things I am currently lusting after for my birthday. These are the things that are currently on my radar. I know, sometimes I still think I’m 15 too. 🙂
Birthday Lust List

Factory Novelty Quilted Puffer in Camo
I wanted this when it was at the J Crew store last year and I want it again this year.

Alex and Ani Cocoa Glisten Beaded Bangle
This one is sold out online, but I love it. I need to add more beads to my stack.

Weekender Bag
I want to customize my own Kate Spade Saturday Weekender bag so badly! I love all the options of making it yours. And the size if perfect for weekends away, hence the name. NEED!!!

Lilly Pulitzer iPhone Case
Know that I have the gold 5s iPhone, I’m on the hunt for all the iPhone cases. I just love the bright colors of this one.

Lilly Pulitzer iPhone Battery Charger

With a new phone comes a new external battery. Love the colors of this one.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera Black

I’m not a huge camera buff, but I love this one. I’m a Polaroid kid at heart I guess.

Divergent Movie DVD

This movie was EVERYTHING. NEED THEO JAMES AT MY HOUSE!

Sperry Top-Sider Seacoast Canvas Sneaker

I’m in love! Saw them for the first time not that long ago and I have to have them.

Love and Other Foreign Words

A book I need for my collection as I hear it is excellent.

Lola and the Boy Next Door

I have the original cover, but I need a paperback of the new cover for my collection of all books Stephanie Perkins.


The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles)

I originally had no plans of reading this, but I have started to like fantasy books more. I’m definitely interested.

The ABCs with Ginger at GReads!

abcbanner1

Welcome to the revamped ABCs.  In the past I have used this weekly Wednesday post as a link up but times are a changing. I’m switching things up as you have learned HERE.

Today we have Ginger from GReads! sharing with us the accessories, books and clothes she is lusting after.

Now let’s give a warm ABCers welcome to the fabulous Ginger!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not only do Andi and I share a love for books, but we both adore fashion too!  We’re always sending each other links to cute outfits we find on sale, and there may be a few dressing room snapshots sent via text when we’re indecisive about buying something.  I was pumped when Andi asked me to guest post for her ABCs feature.

Check out the items I picked for this week…

I love all things Kate Spade, especially the bows! (Andi knows my obsession with bow jewelry).  So of course I had to choose this darling skinni mini necklace from Kate Spade for my accessory choice.  One day I hope to be the owner of this beautiful necklace.

I chose Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas for my book because it’s my current read (will probably already be done by the time this posts).  It’s one of those books that’s been on my radar for quite some time, with many solid recommendations from my bookish friends.  So I figured it was time I jumped right in, and WOW, what a page-turner this one is.

For clothing, I chose this adorable dress from Mod Cloth because right now I am obsessed with all things tribal print.  It’s a fun summery print to begin with, but I love how it can be softened with light colors, or bold with bright colors like this dress.  If I see something in a tribal print, my eyes instantly zero in on it.

This was so much fun!  Thanks again Andi for asking me to be apart of this feature.  Who wants to go shopping now?!

Thanks Ginger for playing!

Kate Spade New York – ‘Hello Sunshine’ iPhone 5 & 5S Case
If you follow me on twitter you know I just got the iPhone 5S so I am now trying to rebuild my case collection. I already have 5 of them, but this is the next one that will be added and it will happen sooner rather than later I think.

Barbie Collector Divergent Four Doll
I. NEED. THIS. That is all.

Target – Mossimo Women’s Strapless Maxi
Another week, another maxi. I can’t help it. I love them. I really am digging the ruffle on this one. It isn’t something I would normally gravitate to but I can’t help it. Plus you, stripes.

Kate Spade – Veranda Place Maree Crossbody
I’m a bag stalker and I’m not afraid to admit it. If I see you on the street and I like your bag I will go to a computer as soon as possible and find it. And that is exactly what happened with this bag. Basically I saw, fell in love, searched and found. Now I lust over it. #putabowonit

IKEA – Hemnes Bookcase in Grey Brown
In my house we have a mudroom that is basically a mess right now. When I eventually get my act together and it is cleaned up I want 2 of these bad boys to hold all of my loves, you know, the plethora of book boyfriends I have.

Lilly Pulitzer – Nigella Boatneck Maxi Dress
Hello gorgeous maxi dress. I would like to invite you into my closet. Well first I want to invite you to go on sale and then to come into my closet.

Kate Spade – The Custom Weekender
I stumbled on this by pure accident. I was looking at bags on the Kate Spade website and saw you can create your own! I mean how cool is that? There are a ton of options you can pull together and the one above is just one that I created while playing. This is definitely on my radar now.

Reading Space
I think the place you read is as important as the books you pick. When at home I like to read in my bed a lot of the time as it is comfortable. When it’s nice out I like to read outside. Natural light does wonders when reading. I was looking for a nice reading nook for today’s feature and came across this on Pinterest and a link of tips for making time to read. I know if this were my reading nook and my view it would be hard for me to find time to do anything else but read.

Top Shop – Check Zip Side Midi Dress
I saw this on a blog post over at Classic Noise(one of my favorite fashion blogs) and I feel in love with it. I could picture it with booties or sandals or basically anything. The print is pretty classic and the black and white leaves a lot of option.
