DIRTY 30 WISHLIST

Dear Internets,

birthday collage

Easter is coming and every decade or so, my birthday along with it. I’m turning 30 and movies tell me I’m supposed to have some sort of 1/3 life crisis but I’m really looking forward to a chilled out birthday this year. As for gifts, my wish is a pretty basic list of don’ts
1. Don’t ask me any questions that require work, chores and planning
2. Don’t get me a red velvet cake (I’ve had far too many of those)

The above responses don’t go down too well when I get asked what I want so I’ve taken to making lists that will generally be ignored. Let the annual self imposed shopping ban commence!

  1. Mac Film Noir lippy $17.00 | Dark, sexy, mysterious chocolate lips by MAC can’t be a bad thing.
  2. Allbirds runners $95.00 | Wool, flexi and comfortable which is perfect since my current sneakers hurt
  3. Books: How to be Parisian… or this $27 | I love reading and beautiful books. If it were an option I would spend days in a book store.
  4. Jean Paul Gautier x Target leather jacket $?| Everyone needs a good leather jacket. Apparently I need two. (EDIT: My fam got me a pretty kick ass leather jacket to tide me over until I fall in love with another investment piece)bday
  5. Mejuri silver evil eye ring $48.00 | My preggo sausage fingers need love and a little good will. All that tummy rubbing calls for an evil eye ring. (EDIT: I bought this for myself. Shopping ban fail but self 5 for a great birthday gift!)
  6. iPhone 6s $1079 | Mat leave means giving up my phone to work. Can you go back after having good technology?
  7. Fossil Sydney satchel $299.00 | A good classic bag is always a good idea. (EDIT: Purchased in seafoam thanks to some peer nominated awards at work resulting in a very large volume of Myer gift cards. Wouldn’t say no to a good everyday leather bag in this colour though)
  8. Instax polaroid camera $88 | Pastel, cute and limited edition with lots of film! A perfect way to capture your birthday (EDIT: Maggie from La Petite Mademoiselle style blog got me the cutest candy pink version with two rolls of film & I got tears in my eyes. So unexpected!)

  9. Clarisonic $295 | Why do always put of taking time for ourselves, particularly when we never grow out of bad skin days?
  10. Gorman Gold rush skirt $119 | Shiny rad with an elastic waist means something to wear now and post baby. A celebration in a pleated skirt!
  11. Babyology annual subscription $199 | Who doesn’t like gifts in the mail every three months? Subscription boxes curb my online shopping too so yay for long term savings!
  12. Plantronics backbeat sense $270 | Because sometimes headphones are super annoying and I have too many podcasts to listen to! (EDIT: Hubby bought me the sport version of this. Comfy, great for work and great on the run, which i might have to do more of post baby)

Or you could just take care of dinner for me? Hope you’re having an amazing MARCH!

    I signed up for that babyology box with baby due soon – I think it’s a nice little surprise to get in the mail although I haven’t opened one yet so who knows if I’ll like it, haha!
