I’m going to be 30 ‘something’ on Sunday and I’m still in denial about how old I’m going to be. James is going to be working away and I’ve got nothing planned, so to cheer myself up a bit I decided to create my 30 something Birthday wishlist.
Every year my Mum always asks me for a list so they can choose something from it and since I’ve had Kyle I’ve been rubbish at doing it. Kyle’s Birthday is 7 days before mine and so for the last 9 years I’ve been too preoccupied to think of myself. I won’t get everything from this list but I can dream!
I used to have loads of nice handbags and these days I usually carry around my Babymule, which although great for days out with the kids, means I’m lacking in nice handbags for the odd occasion I actually have some time to myself. James bought me a gorgeous red handbag a couple of Christmases ago and so I’ve chosen a neutral handbag that will go with my outfit those times I might be wearing a clashing colour with the red.
After attending The Gin Festival earlier in the year my love of Gin has grown so these Gin Cocktail glasses would be perfect.
I’ve recently discovered bodysuits and love them, don’t know why I didn’t try them sooner. During the summer I’ve been wearing them with maxi skirts and also under tops that need it. What I’ve discovered is that they stop the riding up you get with a vest top and you don’t get a draught, they are annoying when you need to toilet though. I love the detailing on this lace one and it will go nicely when I’m layering in Autumn and Winter.
I fell in love with this poncho from Brick Dust and Glitter’s Instagram feed and promptly added it to my birthday wishlist. The neutral colour means I can just chuck it on with the current unpredictable weather and it’s a pretty addition to an outfit.
I LOVE having a mooch around Tiger store and anything Flamingo always catches my eye, I have a bit of a thing for them and Unicorns. Anything from there would make me happy.
I’ve wanted a pair of Rayban’s for ages and after creating my outfits in this post I knew I wanted a rose gold pair. When we went to Spain in the summer James bought me them as an early Birthday present so they are no longer on my wishlist, but they would have been.
A Birthday wishlist wouldn’t be complete without some make up. I’ve been wearing lipstick more regularly recently and really like colours with a purple, pink base so this Mac one would be perfect.
In a dream world I would absolutely love an Olympus Pen camera, I’ve heard so many good things about them and this last year I have really started to get into photography more. Most of my pictures are taken on my Iphone so it would be lovely to be able to take it to the next level with a proper DSLR.
Would any of these be on your list? I would love to know if you have any more ideas for me.
