Birthdays and Christmases are when I ask for all those I really want x y or z but feel foolish wasting my money on it items. Like, I wanted this basket for literally 3 years but it was $40 and $40 is not a lot of money, but I was like.. do I need it? No, of course not, it's a bloody basket and I could spend $40 elsewhere. But I asked for it for Christmas and my totally awesome brother in law got it for me and it's seriously my new favourite thing in the house. I put blankets in it, because whether it's winter or summer I always need a blanket nearby.
Garmin forerunner 15 watch.
Um, I really dig running because it's basically free. Sure you need shoes, but you need shoes anyway. You can run in any old clothes, you can step right out your front door and go for a run, you don't need to buy anything - though people certainly do, I am not one of those people. I like to keep it simple stupid. I do use my Nike running app though, and I would much rather a watch that would track my runs using GPS and tell me my pace. That's all I want. I don't want anything fancy that tracks my heart rate or steps or whatever - just my pace please. I reallyreallyreallyreally want this. I did want the forerunner 10 but after talking to Alyssa I decided the 15. It's only a little bit extra. The battery life is better and it automatically syncs. I know it's expensive for a freaking watch but I promise I will never ask for anything
But if not, then....
This copy of Pride & Prejudice please.
Well of course this is on my list. However, the publisher has gone kaput so you can't buy it anymore unless you want to pay $300. Which I do not. The cheapest I have found it is $250 and I'm sorry but I think that zero at the end should be removed and then we'll talk. If anyone ever sees this and it is reasonably priced, please buy it for me and I will pay you back. Promise, cross my heart and hope to (not) die. I mean, who pays $300 for a book? Not me, no siree.
Bed bath and beyond (or Macy's) gift card.
I have been dreaming about the Barbara Poetical bedding set (Macy's / Bed Bath & Beyond) for like 10 years. Ok, more like 3. But I could never ask for it and I could never buy it myself (too expensive) so I'm hoping if I just collect gift cards I'll have enough to get it one day. You guys, it's on my 30 before 30 list that's how much I want it.
Hunters or a cheaper alternative.
Ugh, I know. I feel so ... basic and copycat-ish. But when we were in NYC in December and it rained every single day - those rain boots would have come in handy. So, whatever. Call me the bandwagon jumperoo. I do have some rain boots that my lovely mother in law got me, but they are bit patterned and out there for me to wear all the time. Now, if anyone knows of a good cheaper brand of rain boots that have just as good a name as Hunters? Let me know. I just want them to last, and be comfortable. I don't particularly want to spend a lot of money on rain boots when I won't wear them often enough to warrant the cost. But I do want some.
I want a framed print of 3 cats. I really tried to search for one that had a black cat, a white cat and a grey cat but no dice. I didn't even really find any that could be customized. I want this because there is no way I will ever get a good photo of all 3 of them worth framing, and I want just one more reminder that we have 3 cats, if the cats, toys, hair and all the other junk wasn't enough of a 'hey 3 cats live here'. I should probably just buy it myself (and probably will) as it is only $5.
One (or both? pushing it?) of these tanks.
Doctor Who and Bad Yogi, please. Size medium, thank you.
This print / canvas thingy.
I originally spied it over on Tracy's blog (here) and have wanted it ever since. Size 8x10 please.
This cardi / cover up thingy.
I want this. But wait till it goes on sale, which it will. The colour 'light sand' and size medium, k thanks. Isn't it pretty? I know I'd wear it allthetime. Of course I first saw it on Gina's blog (here).
Update: Husband, do not buy this. I went ahead and did it for you :) Happy birthday me!
|buy me here but only on sale!|
I don't what I would do with it, but I want it. Ok, never mind it's sold out now (of course) but isn't it pretty?
This mini Lorac palette.
Ok, husband you can't get this at the beauty shop in the mall aka sephora and I know Ulta is too far away so just order it online at Nordstrom - free shipping.
Well, I think I've reached my selfishness quota for the year, hopefully I get one of these for my birthday (really want the watch please husband).
Does your husband need gift suggestions? Just kidding, if left to his own devices he would do more than fine with fun things and things I'd love but these are things I really
What do you think about Hunters?? The boots, not the people who shoot animals for funsies.
