Sunday is my birthday! I’m working on the actual day (which I surprisingly don’t mind) but will be having a little dinner party with family and friends on Saturday. This year my birthday celebration should be pretty low key, I don’t want to drink too much champagne when I have to get up early for work the next day. I still relish any excuse to dress up, get my makeup done and overindulge in italian food (yay for carbs).
While I don’t expect any of the following gifts from my family or friends I do love to daydream about what I might splurge on as a birthday gift to myself. I can’t be the only one who likes to spoil herself on her birthday right?! Most of my wish list is composed of fashion and beauty items that may seem a bit too splurge worthy for a day to day purchase but definitely make a perfect gift to yourself for a special treat.
Chloe Scalloped Ballet Flats| I love the simplicity of these classic Chloe leather flats. I tested the style with the inexpensive Lauren Conrad version and I loved the style. Eventually I would like to upgrade to the higher quality pair in nude, camel or black.
Kate Somerville Goatmilk Cream & Quench Daily Serum| Kate Somerville offers the best skincare line I’ve tested thus far. I love all of her products from eye creams, daily moisturizer, cleanser and serum. I usually alternate between Kate Somerville products and Clinique (to save a bit of money) but I am really missing the Kate Somerville products!
The Fashion Book| I’ve been eyeing this coffee table book for quite some time but can’t seem to pull the trigger. A collection of top fashion designer’s from the past 200 years I would love to adorn my coffee table with this gorgeous book.
Tory Burch Serif T Saddlebag| I can never get enough Tory Burch (I swear it’s a disease)! I love the new Tory Burch saddlebags and the flair of equestrian style. I would definitely be thrilled to add this leather luxury to my handbag collection.
Kate Spade Goreski Glasses Bangle| Ever since the Goreski glasses line came out a few years ago I’ve been obsessed (though I’ve never purchased a piece for myself). This bangle is a sweet reminder of my love for glasses and the boy I adore who wears them.
Plane Tickets to Tennessee| One of my best friends is in her last year of grad school at the University of Tennessee. I’ve been dying to visit her in Knoxville and have a girl’s weekend in Nashville with her before she graduates. I’ve never been anywhere in the South (unless Florida counts), so I would love to explore a new part of the U.S. while seeing what my bestie’s life is like at school.
Kate Spade Taxi Iphone Case| This phone case has so much personality! I recently upgraded to the iphone 6s and need a new quirky case to make a statement. This case is perfect for any city girl!
Free People Carrera Booties| In all honesty, cut out booties probably aren’t the most practical in Seattle’s rainy climate, however I just love the design of this boho inspired pair. Technically I work inside all day anyway so I should be able to justify a pair of less practical shoes right?!
New Face Masks| Giving myself at home spa treatments is one of my favorite ways to relax (without the hefty price tag of an actual visit to a spa). I always enjoy trying out new face masks like the Glamglow Thirsty Mud Mask, hydrating Rose Face Mask, and any assortment of sheet masks (like Karma or Sephora’s own line).
Bella Vita Ollie Lace Up Flats| The lace up flat trend is still going strong, this pair is so feminine and would look great with jeans or flowy skirts and dresses. The tassel and soft pink color seriously make my heart skip a beat!
Are you lusting after any of the items on my birthday wish list? Do you buy yourself a gift for your own birthday?
