So, I’ve gotten inspired by a blog by the lovely Sarah of essveebee, all about birthdays. Mine is in a few weeks time, and generally speaking I get rather excited by it….I’ve actually never worked it as I’ve always had jobs where I could book it off, so I did, and not only would I book the actual day off, I’d book at least a week. Many a time I’ve heard people say “Sara, you cant celebrate for a whole week, thats ridiculous!” Well, if its good enough for the Queen to celebrate alot, then its good enough for me!
I am probably a tad too materialistic, but hey, I’m a Leo, it goes with the terratory, I think! Often what I want for my birthday, and what others can realistically afford to buy me is often wide of the mark!
So, here’s all the things that I’d want to open if I had magical abilities and could make all my nearest and dearest suddenly rich enough to bestow the best gifts upon me…
Spied this via http://www.nearsightedowl.com/ – its on their newly opened Etsy shop, and as I’m nearsighted and have a things for owls, I’m totally in love with this!
Talking of Etsy, I’ve also spied some jewellery on there that I’m a-lovin. Namely, having seen Sarah’s post, I then got side tracked by her Etsy page, and these earrings…
I’ve a necklace that would go perfectly with these…but I’m also loving her For thee I’ll lock up all the gates of love necklace
Also, I’m loving almost everything Bijou Bijoux right now…again, she taps into my love of all things tea, and needless to say I love her tea necklaces and hair grips. Also, love all her feather headbands, but I think I’d need an occassion to be brave enough to wear them! So for me it has to be….
Talking of tea, I’m also absolutely and completely in love with the limited edition scarf from Twinings….I’m a fan of Alice Temperley, often when I love a celebrity read carpet dress, its her thats done the designing and this is no exception. You’ll notice a pattern here, but I saw it on http://www.whatkatiewore.com/2011/07/06/taken-on-detox-day-4/ where the lovely Katie wore it as a headscarf….I’ve more conventional ideas in mind if I was ever to own it, but methinks its unlikely!
So, onto things that I havent spied in other peoples blogs! I’m a Radley fiend, so no birthday would be complete without me wishing that I had some Radley shaped presents to open! And to think I used to think it was an old woman’s range! (note from editor: actually she’d like a Mulberry shaped present, but even she isnt that unrealistic in wishes!)
I’m also loving the Canonbury Medium Grab Bag in Marsupial Grey
I’m a speccy four eyes, and my current glasses are ancient. May sound like an odd wish for a birthday present, but when you’re poor like moi, sometimes wishing for a necessity is needed! Although these are gorgeous, so well, its warranted that I want them as a wishlist present!
again, they were something I spied on someone else’s blog…which I guess is the point of inviting bloggers to events, its to make their readers want to buy what’s featured, right?
http://www.pocketrocketfashion.com/?p=1031 is where I first spied these beautiful glasses!
I’m also in love with these berry coloured brogues…http://www.next.co.uk/x482340s6 – there would be a picture, but Next uses flash and thus unable to grab a picture from there!
Finally, for me, a birthday is nothing without a book to read, and I’ve been lusting after this Waterstones exclusive edition of The Time Traveller’s Wife…I already own a copy, but out of their extensive range of exclusive covers, this one is a combination of my favourite book + favourite new cover.
So, that concludes my very long list of wishes….some that I’ve an outside chance of getting come my birthday, others not a cat in hell’s! If you had to compile a list of non-clothing wishlist, what would it contain? (shoes dont count as clothes in my book!)
Love and Hugs! xxx
