Top 5 Birthday Wish List

Well, whether I like it or not, my birthday officially is a week away! (Check out this post for my birthday insecurities). Since we’re going to be on vacation all next week, I didn’t ask for too much this year. I mean, what can top a birthday vacation, right?! Nonetheless, it’s always fun to put together a wish list so here’s my top 5 birthday wish list that I hope to receive or purchase for myself in the coming months!

Top 5 Birthday Wish List
eye shadow palette | blush sneakers | board game | nail polish | iPhone 7

Beauty | I think I have an eye shadow palette addiction. They are my weakness! LORAC palettes are still my favorite, and the original Unzipped palette is at the top of my list. The selection of shadows seems like you can create a variety of looks! OPI’s Mod About You polish also has been on my radar for a long time, so that would be a nice little treat.

Board Game | Kind of funny how this is the only non-blush thing in this wish list. This is a super random gift idea, but Ryan and I love to have game night so we’re slowly trying to build our board game collection. We love Disney. We love Family Feud. So, this game seems like a no-brainer.

Sneakers | I never thought the day would come when I’d be a sneaker gal, but that day has arrived. Sneakers are my jam lately, and this blush pair from the dv line at Target is perfection. How pretty would these be with a pair of white skinnies? The neutral color makes the style options endless.

New iPhone | Ha! In my dreams! I know this is totally not going to happen, but that’s why this is a wish list. I’m still rocking the iPhone 6, but the battery life seems to die a little more every day. Depending on how active I am on my phone, I have to charge it at least twice, if not three times, daily! Not to mention the dreaded 16GB storage issue … ugh. It’s kind of a pain, but I’m trying to stick it out until August when we’re due for our upgrades. In the meantime, Ryan is keeping an eye out for any stellar deals where we could get a good trade-in deal so I could get a new phone sooner. Maybe I’ll get lucky!

Now that I finished putting together my top 5 birthday wish list, I’m sitting here laughing. It’s kind of a sad birthday wish list, but it’s honestly hard to come up with things that you want as you get older! I would much rather celebrate as we are – taking a trip to spend time together and create memories opposed to just accumulating stuff. That said, I still will be thrilled if I receive any of the items on my wish list. 😉

Do you find birthdays harder to celebrate as you get older?
