Top Ten Picks for Birthday Wish List

Do we have to reach a point in our lives when we can’t have a birthday wish list anymore?  Like you’re not 16 anymore, so you can’t drag your parental unit to the mall and hope they buy you that Abercrombie skirt that clearly needs to be 4 inches longer.  So I turned 30 last year.  I embarrassed myself by recalling all the birthdays past.  Read it.  One of my favorite posts.  I’d say the first year of my 30’s has been pretty sweet with a dream wedding and bucket list honeymoon.  I can’t wait to see what this next year brings.  I mean if it doesn’t involve matching pink tanks and a laminated to do list……I think I’ll be doing just fine.

Birthday Wish List

See this past one was way more civilized…..clearly I like to make my hair wavy with special occasions…..just noticed that little tidbit.

Now all my July birthday peeps out there don’t you kind of feel like we deserve a birthday month because our birthdays get lost in the shuffle of the Summer excitement?  Plus, I never got my locker decorated in school.  Yes, I still hold onto that one.  My birthday is on July 5th (Sunday to be very specific) and it always gets swept up in the holiday celebrations.  That is why I tell Mark that a birthday month is completely called for. So I thought I’d make a fabulous little wish list and then send it to a certain somebody….plus this is also a fun little way to see how many people write Happy Birthday and move on *insert evil laughter*. I put that in the same category as “great post….kisses….follow me back!

So even though I don’t need a single thing off this birthday wish list, a girl can always dream right? I even busted out photoshop to make this one.  I know, I was getting a little crazy with myself.

I got the Fitbit HR for my dad for Father’s Day and I’m obsessed.  It just totally fits with my OCD/Type A tracking personality.  Plus with the HR, you can actually now how many calories you are burning in a day. A splurge pair of new Tom Ford Sunglasses.  These have been on my radar for quite some time now.  Always can go for something sparkly am I right?  Next, do I need another purse?  No.  Is it on my lust list and will be mine?  Probably sometime soon.  My holy grail lip stains in every color they make, including the plump up version.  At home facials whenever I want??  With this gadget, never pay for another pricey salon one again.  Now that I am using my camera all the time, I need a sturdy camera bag and this one is taking top ranks.  I need this float in my life… yesterday.  To go along with this gorgeous bathing suit.  Finally, it will fit in my upholder and it’s pink, enough said.

I would be extremely fortunate to get even one thing on this birthday wish list!  I am a firm believer in getting something special for yourself on your big day, so you have something to fondly look back on.  I hope everyone is having a great week!  Tell me all about your 4th of July plans!  I know a lot of people are taking tomorrow off but I will have the Friday Favorites linkup available for anyone who wants to join in before the holiday gets going.  Are you a fellow Summer birthday celebrator as well?  Tell me when it is!

  1. Mine’s on the 24th! I always hated it when I was a kid because all my friends would be away and it was hard to plan a party

  2. Love EVERY single item on your birthday wishlist! Those sunglasses are amazing and you already know how I feel about that pool float! Having your birthday in summer sucks. Everyone was always on vacation for mine so I never even got to have a big party or anything. And don’t even get me started on missing out on the in school birthday celebrations. Hope you have a great birthday weekend love!

  6. if there’s one time to treat yo’self, it’s on your birthday so i say get something off that list for yourself :)

  7. I know all about Summer Birthdays as both of my siblings are June babies. I love that Swell pink bottle, totally adding that to my wishlist! Holiday plans are simple, but I’m looking forward to a low key weekend! I hope you have a great Birthday month and get all the things! Birthdays are awesome!!

    I am dyyyying for Tom Ford sunglasses. My mom and sis both have a pair and they swear by them. Also really want a fitbit! Happy almost birthday pretty lady! Ps those tank tops are amaze. I wish I could have talked my friends into wearing something like that for me ;)

  9. Stacy G says:

    Well you definitely need the flamingo float! Thats just a give-in. Btw Ive been supporting birthday months for as long as I can remember lol! I think birthday lists are always a good idea too, because I’m not a surprise kind of girl(like at all) haha Have the best weekend!! Hope you get some things off your wishlist! xo

    Happy almost birthday lovely!! I know what you mean re: holiday time birthdays just sort of disappearing into the mix. Mine is right after Valentine’s Day (a real holiday, a fake one, whatever it happens) so not only am I always alone and reminded about it, but a lot of people skip/forget my birthday as part of the love frenzy. A month is a must. Also I’m onlbaessed with the pink S’well bottle, we have them at my new part time gig and I have to keep telling myself I don’t need another water bottle!

  11. Happy early birthday!! I want that pool floatie!! :D

  12. Ohhhh that flamingo is too cute, it gets my vote for the birthday treat! :)

  13. Love the list!! My friend just got that Fitbit and it’s actually so much cuter than the normal black one! I definitely say treat yourself ;) And my birthday often falls on Fathers Day weekend so I feel you in it ‘getting lost’!

  14. i love this list! UGH yes to most of it – including that bag, sunglasses and a limitless supply of YSL lip stains haha. not even kidding :) anyway, i’m a fall bday girl and i’m not gonna complain! i always felt bad for the summer bday kids (my baby bro is a july bday) bc they didn’t get the recognition we did! anyway, happy long weekend! fingers crossed i’m back to blogging soon! xo

  15. Nichole says:

    My birthday is January 2nd, so I know how you feel! I want that camera bag!!

  16. Brittany says:

    I’m so interested in that facial steamer! Would be much easier than my usual boiling a pot of water hah!

  17. Karly says:

    I’m cracking up about how you never got to have your locker decorated at school – you’re hilarious. Anyways, hooray for your upcoming birthday! You’re definitely never too old to have a birthday wish list in my opinion – I love the new trend of pool floats. They have some seriously cute ones! That camera bag also looks super nice. I hope you get at least a few of your coveted goodies!

  18. Leslie says:

    My birthday was yesterday and I am definitely all for taking the whole month to celebrate. :) (Although I do have to share it with my daughter!) Great wish list! You can never be too old for a wish list. Have a fabulous birthday!

  19. marie says:

    You totally deserve everything on your list. I have a funny feeling that you will be getting that Gucci bag!! LoL. It’s so gorgeous!! If you get that float, can I come over and use it? It’s so freaking cute!! And why didn’t i know that YSL lipstains come in plump versions now. Have I been living under a rock??

  20. Helene says:

    I have the Fitbit HR and I’m obsessed! sometimes i freak out if it’s not charged! haha. happy birthday month – think you need to find that old tank top!

  21. Ashley says:

    I love that bikini- hello, gorgeous!
    Happy early birthday, lady! Celebrate hard! :)

  22. Aimee says:

    Happy early Birthday! I’m all about a birthday month and wish lists at any age, and I’m also all about getting a birthday treat for yourself (especially at this age, because who knows you best?!)

  23. Samantha says:

    Great picks and loving that Gucci bag. Happy Birthday!

  24. Well hello fellow summer birthday girl! Not ever having to go to school on your birthday is the best isn’t it?! But I was that kid who’s mom brought in cupcakes on some random day of the schoolyear so I wouldn’t be left out lol.

    Loving your b-day wishlist, I think we all need that flamingo floaty in our lives! <3

  25. excellent list, girl! and i truly need that flamingo float in my life. i think that would take my poolin’ to the next level!

  26. JK JK JK ^^^^^ So, I know we’re twinsies on just about everything… But this. Bday’s were never a big deal in our house and I don’t understand why anyone would make them one. Like, congrats, you you’re a year older…?? We got what we wanted for dinner and mom baked us a cake and we got one present, nothing flashy/expensive. That’s how I like to celebrate them now, too. In fact, now that I’m 30 I’m totes cool with forgetting them altogether. 30 is a great age to stop at, kthanxbai.

  27. Pinky says:

    You have great taste, lady! But, duh, we already knew that ;)! I can imagine how much of a bummer it was not getting your locker decorated, that was so much fun back in the day right?!?!

    Happy Birthday MONTH!

  28. Haley says:

    I need a good camera bag too. I’ve been looking at the Kelly Moore bags, those are chic.
    My birthday was always during exam week at school. I hated that. Nobody had time to celebrate because we were all so focused on the testing. (blah blah….. tests)
    Hope you have a fab birthday month.

  29. Lindsay says:

    I hope you get everything on that list because it is an awesome list and you deserve it pretty girl!

  30. I absolutely agree that us July b-day people should get more attention! Let’s make this a real thing…. =)

  31. My youngest son’s birthday happened every year days after school ended in June. Growing up all he wanted was his name on the school marquee announcing his birthday. One year, in 8th grade it happened, they extended the school year due to hurricanes and his name went up! He was supposed to be this ‘too cool for school 8th grader’ but it was like he was 5 years old, he was so excited, he had me film him walking past the marquee! I don’t think the kid in us ever really goes away! Personally, as a cancer survivor I celebrate birthdays like CRAZY now, everything is about perspective :-) I really enjoyed your post and love your list! Happy day!

  32. July birthdays are the best! (Mine’s the 26th :) I remember in elementary school they used to celebrate summer “half birthdays” since we weren’t in school during our actual birthdays… just not the same! Happy early Birthday, girl!

  33. Tia says:

    I created a wish list of activities for my birthday which I shared on my blog when I was celebrating my #monthofme. I hope that you are able to get a few of your desired items. Enjoy the holiday weekend and thanks for sharing on TBBloggers.

  34. Happy birthday month! I hope you get some (or all) things on your wish list :)

  35. Happy birthday weekend my dear! Just got the hubs the FitBit (after he swam with his other fitness tracker…) and he’s obsessed. And that flamingo floaty….love it!

  36. Rachel says:

    Happy birthday! I feel your pain about having a summer birthday growing up in school – mine is/was last week! I hope you get everything on your wish list :)

  37. Umm, NO clue how I missed this post!!! Sorry for commenting on this so late!! Anyways… That Gucci bag is gorgeous. They are my absolute favorite. I have three of them and a wallet. I’m a huge advocate for nice bags. I would just rather have a few expensive bags instead of a million cheap ones that fall apart. They are worth it. Love those sunglasses, that float, and that lip stain too. You should send this list to Mark too haha. :-)

  38. Nikki says:

    Happy birthday and YES to birthday month!! I’m a summer birthday as well, August 29th. I hated not being able to get my locker decorated for my birthday either!! I wonder if kids even do that these days?! Hope you get everything you wished for and then some, always splurge a little on your birthday!

  39. Kiki says:

    I feel you fellow July girl. (; Mine is the 22nd, and it seems every year we go on vacation the week of my birthday. Good for me and bad for me. We are usually super busy and excited about vacation that even I “forget” what day it is. I’ve never been a huge bday person so it kinda works out. I hope you had a wonderful day full of wavy hair! (;

  40. Kristen says:

    those sunglasses are so pretty! hope you get everything on the list for your birthday girl.

  41. See, I always wished for a summer birthday! Mine is in November. It causes a jam packed holiday season. My birthday, then thanksgiving, then Christmas. I was always envious of my summer birthday pals.

  42. We are never to old for a birthday wish list :)! I am loving everything but especially those sunnies and DY bracelet! Hope you had a wonderful weekend celebrating! Xo, Stephanie

  43. Carly says:

    Happy belated birthday!!! I love so many of your picks– especially the sunglasses! My husband has the charge hr and loves it!
