Birthday Wish-List

My birthday and Mother's day are right around the corner....so obviously my list of requests has been growing with each passing day. 

For my birthday, Joel and I are spending the day in the city, and I want to spend a few child free hours shopping. I have a few returns to make at Nordstrom and Bloomingdales, so I'm hoping to go easy on Joel's wallet. 

As far as clothes are concerned, I need to update my summer wardrobe a bit. I'm on the hunt for a few new cardigans and easy, breezy, summer tops, and a few updates to my workout wear.

I'm also on the hunt for a new pair of fun earrings since my turquoise Kendra Scott earrings recently broke (although I'm hoping Nordstrom will swap/fix them for me). 

I'm kind of thinking about splurging for a nice Tory Burch cardigan....

  and I love this cutie from Madewell

but I'd like to get 2 or 3 to wear with shorts, dresses, and jeans for the entire summer.  

Along with a little fashion upgrade, I'm also hoping to get a child carrier for my bike for this summer. Anyone have any favorites? I'm liking this one from Target, but I want to make sure that we get one that is somewhat roomy 

I'm not in love with any of the bikes we currently have, but I want to see how much we actually ride them before I go all out and get a new one. 

Both my Kiehls Ultra Face Moisturizer and Daily Reviving Serum are about done - so those need restocking I suppose.

...By the way....Am I the only person who cannot stand buying makeup and face creams? They are just so expensive, run out so fast, and don't make that big of a difference! My sisters are all about it, but I just can't seem to get over it. 

I also really need to invest in some new makeup. I've been using the same old things for the last few years and I want a little update. Do you have a new product that has been life changing? I'm really like Nars Undereye cream, and I like my Bare Minerals Complexion rescue....along with Benefit's Gimmie Brow...but I could use to invest in some brightening things, better eye shadows, and new mascara.

So there you have it....if I keep typing this list is going to get really expensive. 


  1. I love Urban Decay eyeshadow, but I get the Naked basic palettes which are matte and not shimmery. I also have a new Nars eye shadow I love called All About Eve. I love First Aid Beauty creams!! They're not too expensive, they work on my sensitive skin and they are all natural or mostly natural.

  2. I'm obsessed with anything Tarte. I primarily use their face primer, powder, blush, lipstick, and set spray. They came out with the marine boosting mist not long ago that you spray on, and I got the sample and I loved it so much, I ordered it. Plus I love that they're vegan, paraben and phthalate free. I wasn't super impressed by their mascara though. Haven't tried the eye shadow, but I want to soon!

    I don't use any creams so I can't help you there. ;)
