Birthday Wishlist!

So, as it's my birthday at the end of the month, I've been thinking about presents. Obviously. I'm actually not really good with presents, I love picking out things and giving them to other people, but receiving them makes me feel a little awkward. But everyone's got a wishlist, right? Little things in the back of your mind that you'd like, but couldn't justify buying them for yourself. Maybe they're a little bit too expensive for your budget, maybe they're just too much of a luxury you don't "need". But hey, a girl can dream.

Birthday Wishlist!


1. Diana camera. I got my first camera for Christmas when I was eleven. Even though it was bulky and useless, I loved it. I used to save up my pocket money to get my photos developed, and I have a few boxes of old embarrassing photos lurking around the house now. After buying a cheap disposable camera when we were in Dublin, I realised how much I missed film cameras. Not so much the photos themselves, but the idea of having to wait to see what the pictures actually look like. In a time when everything is instant, it's a novel idea to have to wait.

2. Irregular Choice shoes. I have a deep love for Irregular Choice. Ever since my first pair that I bought second hand off a friend, that my dog later chewed to ribbons, I've been hooked. I'm lucky enough to own a few pairs, but I can't help checking out new ones from time to time. These ones would certainly perk up my drab old wardrobe!

3. Thomas Sabo charms. These charms are really close to my heart. A couple of years ago, my oldest friend in all of the land bought me a beautiful pearl Thomas Sabo bracelet, and charms to go with it. And then for any milestone, she'd add another one to my collection. Caelen, with the help of his nana, got me another one for my first Mother's Day. While twenty seven isn't a milestone as such, I'd like to add another charm to hang among the others on my wrist.

4. Naked palette. I think I'm the only person in all of the land not to have one of these. To be honest, I never really bought into the hype until recently. I don't wear much makeup, but when I do, I like to go all out, even if it is a daytime trip to the cinema, or a walk to the shops. Since Caelen is usually running around and trying to steal my makeup brushes while I'm attacking my face, it would be so much easier to have a selection of pretty eyeshadows all together in one place. At least, that's my reasoning for wanting to own it, and I'm sticking to it!

5. Topshop flower necklace. I'll admit, I love me some big old jewellery. I don't often get the chance to wear it these days, but you can never have enough, am I right? I saw this in store a few weeks back, but saving for Dublin meant I couldn't splurge. Sad face!

6. Q&A 5 Year Journal. I've been eyeing these up for about a year now, and it's been sitting in my Amazon basket for almost as long. Something always comes up when I remember it though, so in my basket it's remained. I'd love to start this on a particular day. And since New Years Day is a million years away yet, isn't a birthday the perfect time to start? I'd love to be able to sit down five years from now and read about what I was thinking on each particular day.

Obviously there are many things on this wishlist of mine, but most are just a pipe dream at the moment. A kitten, or a puppy, or both. A holiday in the sun. A Macbook (yep, I'm all about the hype for that one!). A new iPhone - since the lock button on mine is gone bockety on mine, I've started to resent it just a little. More photo frames so I can finally hang the thousands of pictures I have of Caelen. A new tattoo and a septum piercing. Oh, the list is endless!

Hey, who wants to buy me a winning lottery ticket?
