blowing out 27 candles (too) soon enough.

someone's birthday is around the corner, so she is keeping tabs on a few of  her favorite things. 
here are just a few of them for those of you who are on a need-to-know-basis. 
(you know who you are. snicker, snicker.)

urbanears headphones in light green (not the one in picture), urban outfitters / scarf , le mode accessories

the geometry class dress, red velvet / black lace top, reverie market 

architectural diffusion bracelet, le mode accessories / braided bracelet, reverie 

hunter boots in hunter green, nordstrom or zappos / fox head ring, sea of bees

sigh, this is one thing on my wishlist that i'm not sure if i want it or not.
call me a grandma or an old lady, but i do love the feel of the books.
the phrase curling up with a book is stuck on me, not so much curling up with my kindle.
see, i'm such an old lady? i can already here my future grandchildren making fun of me.

what's on your wish list, friend?

you might help me add a few more things to this list.
oh, plus cash and food are eagerly accepted. hehe.

much love.
[happy thursday, friend.]

p.s. Lily White has one sweet giveaway going on right now, peeps!


  1. looove your birthday list!! can't wait for us to be the same age for 1 month!! ;)

  2. Hunter booooooooooooooooooots!!!! La-la-love!

  3. Oh my goodness! When is your birthday? That's so exciting. For some reason I've always looked forward to turning 27 (don't ask why) I've got about 6 years to go... haha

    I love love your birthday list!

    On my wish list would be a fish eye lens for my camera, maybe a new 50mm lens and definitely anything from etsy! (ahem, like something from your shop!)

    Take care.

  4. I love that architectural diffusion bracelet. It reminds me of the concert hall in Millennium Park in Chicago.

    This is my own personal soap box (I make ebooks at a publishing house), but before you get a Kindle, take a look at some of your other options, like the Barnes & Noble Nook Touch. Not only is it eink (so it's easy to read, just like the Kindle), but it's touch screen, so you don't have to use the Kindle's 80's-throwback-in-a-bad-way joystick thing to get around your book. I promise it will be cozier. :)

  5. I adore Hunter Boots! Get the Kindle. There is nothing better in the whole world than holding a book in your hands, but when you travel a lot a Kindle is just so much more convenient. And it's not backlit so your eyes don't get tired.

  6. lovely finds!!!! a little obsessed with that black lace top :)

  7. i love my NOOK!!! it is amazing. And i have access to over 2million books and have so many stored on my reader so I can download and buy books immediately (and much cheaper than buying) and when friends tell me about books I can actually get them so I remember to read them later and it looks like paper...

    and yeah.. I love it

    I thought I'd miss paper books.
    But my back doesn't and it fits in my purse :)!...

    doooo itttt...

    love the headphone!


  8. You're not an old lady...or, if you are, I am too! I just can't abandon real books for an e-reader. It's like...betraying the books. I don't know. I just know I prefer a real book! ;)

  9. love that black sweater. i have a kindle and i feel the same way you do. i've decided that i will read books on there and if i really love them then i will go and buy the book. i have a "library" in my house and i love looking at all of my books. and sometimes there are typos and mistakes on the kindle books. something about putting them in digital format, i guess.

  10. So here's a question: I've been thinking of adding a Kindle to my Christmas list. BUT if you got one, would you still want books? I love books and I don't want to ever give up the smell and feel of an actual book. But... the Kindle is just so PRETTY and EASY!

    I hope you get everything on your wish list!

  11. hehe.
    I flipped over my calendar the other day to write something down for October and I saw your birthday and I was like Yay!!! I must send out her present sometime reallly reallllly soon!! :)
    PS I love those headphones!!!
    Super amazing!

  12. Heheh :) your not an an old lady :) Im like you.. I like the feel of books too but i'm not sold on the kindle yet ( though i think its pretty cool looking :) )

  13. What day is your birthday? Mine is the 27th :-)

    The main thing on my wishlist is that my baby will arrive before then! She's due tomorrow, but seems pretty happy in there...

    Happy early birthday!

    ♥ Bethany

  14. Love it!!!

  15. Oh, I LOVE your list! My birthday is in November, so I've been making a mental list of somethings I want (which will definitely be turned into a blog convenient for my husband!).

    The Hunter boots are definitely on my list, too! Love them!

  22. Go for the Kindle! I felt the same way as you, but books are my job...I'm a librarian! I still love a crisp new book, but I travel a lot so my Kindle is a must-have!

  30. I would just like to point out that I didn't even think you were almost 27. When I started reading your blog I thought you were like 18/19. Then I saw you had a fiance and I thought, hmmm she must be at least 22. Keep your skin looking good! and Happy Birthday:)

  31. I'm recently 27 and I'm loving this birthday wish list! :)
    have a happy happy birthday!

  32. great birthday list. loving that gold cuff. agree re: the kindle. i love a real book!

  33. I KNOW!! I feel conflicted about the kindle too. I guess if we had one we could enjoy the best of both worlds, using it sometimes but not always... hmm. New territory. :)
