My 2018 Birthday Wishlist

Happy June! AKA my favorite month because my birthday, anniversary and dog’s birthday happen to be in this month!

I’ve decided to share this year’s wishlist just in case you also are celebrating a birthday soon or maybe you’re curious to see what items I’ve been wanting to get my hands on.

 

1- BECCA Be A Light Face Palette

Ever since I saw this palette on Instagram I immediately knew it’s exactly what I need in my life. You guys know I’m all about that natural makeup (FYI, you can check out my natural everyday makeup routine here) First of all I love this brand and they are definitely known as the #1 glowy skin go-to products. Second, this is so convenient for my everyday routine, one palette and that’s it! I’m not the one to usually buy face palettes but I feel like this one is pretty special it’s got everything in one. Even [blurring] setting powder which is mainly what sold me on this palette.

2. ZARA Faux Leather Jacket

Such a staple. I’m personally not a fan of real leather jackets, mainly because to be honest it grosses me out to know I’m wearing real animal skin. (Which is completely different for handbags) But also, I’ve had 2 faux leather jackets from Zara in the past 5 years and I know these last me at least 2 years, even when I use it every single day. The first time I got a Faux Leather Jacket from Zara was shortly before I moved to LA, I remember asking my dad for one for Christmas because I knew I would need a thicker jacket in LA since it tends to get really cold. I loved that jacket so much it lasted me years. So the main reason why I want this one is simply because I feel like it’s time to retire my current one and make some room for a new baby!

3. Premium High Speed Blender

I currently own a pretty crappy blender that makes my smoothies and vegan sauces really chunky. I just really need a good quality blender that can turn cashew cream into a smooth buttery sauce & my smoothies, well, smooth. This one that I featured is definitely a big splurge because this also does weighing, mixing, chopping, milling, kneading, blending, steaming, cooking, whisking, precise heating, stirring, emulsifying etc etc . So it would be pretty nice to have one of these! My mom and my aunt own one and they’ve had theirs for years so what else would make me feel like I’m getting older than a legit grown-up gift like this one?

4. Platform Espadrilles

I don’t really have a link for this one but I’ve been just wanting to get a good pair of some platform espadrilles and I actually haven’t found the perfect ones yet. These pictured are from Topshop last year’s summer collection. Which I’ve 100% regretted not buying for literally a year now. They’ve had them in their Summer 16 and Summer 17 collection and I told myself if a year from then I was still thinking about them, I’ll get them in Summer 2018. But to be honest I don’t think they’re even coming out with these again. So if you ever see something you love, buy it! Don’t make the same mistake I did.

5. MEJURI Gold Bangle

You guys already know how much I love this brand, Mejuri, I am literally obsessed with every single piece they have. I’ve been wanting an everyday gold bangle for literally years. For me, the perfect bangle absolutely has to have a clasp. I have such tiny wrists that every single bangle without a clasp I’ve tried looks huge on me. This one at $95 is definitely an affordable option because gold bangles tend to be really expensive.

6. Brixton Brown Fedora Hat

Once again, I don’t have an exact link for this hat. (But if you know of similar ones like the one pictured please share the link with me!) I’ve been really wanting a nice quality dark brown fedora hat. I’ve been looking for one since December 2017 and still I haven’t found the perfect one. I know Brixton and Lack of Color both have really good quality hats so I’m hoping that one of these days I’ll finally find the perfect one.

7. YETI Tumbler

There is not better tumbler our there than YETI. You are 100% getting your money’s worth with this one. My boyfriend has the big one and it is seriously the best thing in the world. I’ve had so many coffee mugs and I’ve truly never seen one work the way this one does. I usually bring coffee to work early in the morning and keep sipping on it until probably lunch time so I’ve been really wanting to invest in a good coffee travel mug that will keep my beverage hot or cold for hours and hours.
