If my birthday was in the summer...

Friday, June 26, 2015

When I was younger I was always super jealous of my friends who could have their birthday parties at the pool. Now that I'm older, I'm still jealous but for other reasons. Since my birthday is in November and so close to Christmas, it's so hard to think of things that I "want" both for my bday and Xmas. And they always end up being winter-ish gifts, like sweaters and such. I always see so many things during the summer months that I lust over and wish my birthday was in June! So, IF my birthday was this summer, this is what I'd be hoping for:


Husband and I are dyyyying for a Yeti cooler. Even though it's super expensive, I feel like we would get great use out of it since we are at the beach almost every weekend during the summer. We are also dying for bikes! We love going on bike rides around our neighborhood at night but we always have to borrow my sister and brother-in-law's bikes.

As for the "girly" things I have been lusting over, Loren Hope anything. Especially those knock-out earrings! They would glam up any outfit! Dying for Jo Malone perfume. I hear such amazing things about it! And Tory Burch can do no wrong in my eyes ;)

When is your birthday? What's on your wish list?


  1. I totally know what you mean about having a birthday in the middle of winter and the gifts are less summery!! I love those earrings - they are gorgeous!!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Too funny – I always use to think of what I’d want for a summer birthday because summer stuff is just so much fun. Sometimes I asked (still ask) to celebrate my half birthday too since mine is five days before Christmas. I’m dying for a beach cruiser bike, if only I had more opportunities to ride. Of course I’m loving those Tory flip flops too.

  3. I've heard nothing but good things about the Yeti cooler.

  4. I would love to have a bike too! Just don't have anywhere to put it at the moment. And I've never smelled Jo Malone but maybe I should!! Have a great day girl :)

    I have a fall birthday and I love it now that I'm older because it means fall is coming where I live. We have a summer that just lasts forever and by the time october rolls around it starts to finally get cool. And I love with the cup, blah blah blah.

  6. We really want to get bikes! Unfortunately, we don't have anywhere to store them right now so they are on hold!

  7. I never really thought about that!! I guess it would be hard to think of enough stuff to cover Christmas + your birthday!! Bikes are a great investment - we love taking ours out on the weekends! Gotta love YETI coolers too :)

  8. Seriously! My birthday is in January, so I have the same problem! I love those Loren Hope earrings. Fun fact: I can't ride a bike. :( You should definitely get Jo Malone... I wore the lotion in Peony and Suede this weekend and it was perfect. xo
