My birthday is coming around the corner and I have been thinking about what I want. I know it seems weird (or maybe not?) thinking long and hard about what you want and what to tell people to get for you. Maybe it is because I try to ask for things I NEED. Seems simple enough, but considering I don’t go shopping often, I forget about what I need. Then I go to use it, realize I need it, then forget again. So anytime my birthday or christmas comes along I try REALLY hard to remember what I need.
So I put together a semi-lame birthday wishlist. I mean I can easily say that I want cute jewelry and lots of dresses because I always want that stuff. But this my list that is half “in my dreams” and half “so lame no one would get it for me.” See, I’m not getting ANY of this stuff for my birthday.
1 lip balm + lip stick
I’ve been reading a bunch smarty pants online memes about how people should get an award for using a whole tube of lipbalm. I do. In fact I am the last little bits of balm in 3 different tubes. Yikes! I have only one tube left. I also want to dabble in more lipsticks. I’ve heard great things about Lime Crime, vegan and quality wise. It is a little pricey, but I can always hope right?
2 tiny socks + small socks + tights
I think socks and tights are always on my wishlist- every year. I don’t know why everyone ignores it. I always get holes and runs in my stockings or I just simply loose half of the sock pair. Come on guise! Help me out! I even buy socks every time I buy a pair of shoes from DSW. I mean I haven’t been in over a year, which might be why I am extra desperate.
3 cardigans + sweaters
I’ve been complaining a lot on this blog about how cold I am at work. Or maybe I don’t and just delete that paragraph before publishing articles. But my bosses have been keeping the workspace fairly cool. I’ve been wearing the same three sweaters over and over again, and I need more. I also feel my cardigans getting a little ratty.
4 cookbooks isa does it + vegan eats world + rawsome vegan baking
I ALWAYS want more cookbooks. At this moment I would like these. I’ve been reading This Rawsome Vegan Life pretty often. Her writing style is great and her recipes look yummy. So I think Rawsome Vegan Baking would be a great dessert book to add. I also would love the most recent Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. They never seem to fail me.
5 canon rebel t5i digital slr camera
Being a little too hopeful huh? Yup, I want a really nice SLR camera. I always wanted one and was thinking about getting an analog one in college. It never fleshed out since I know film itself is pricey. But this camera is for big plans for this site. Videos and super sexy food. My current camera is SOO old, that iphones usually take better photos. Yikes. I’ve been saving all my tip money in hopes of buying the camera, but I am still pretty far behind. I am inching towards $300 saved up.
