Birthday Wishlist

I turn 21 in less than a month and it's an exciting yet daunting process of debating with myself whether or not, and how, to celebrate. Dinners, bars, parties; intimate gathering or big party; crisscrossing sets of friends, or doing separate shindigs with separate groups of friends? The thing about birthdays in general is that I love planning- food, drinks, venue and presents. I am a present-person, and proud. Oddly enough I find I usually forget that I get to receive presents at my birthday (this is excepting my boyfriend, who gets plenty of hints throughout the year) so this year I thought I'd compile a wishlist- more for myself to document and save towards than for friends who read my blog, because as far as I know, very few friends read it. Going around the board from the top left:

01 Mimco Pouch 'Supernatural'
I've browsed many a time and I've never found a 'mouch' that I've really loved, until I saw this one on their website. I'm anticipating the Mimcollective birthday reward in the hope of using it to make this mine.

02  kikki.k homewares
I love kikki.k's stationery and style, and when they brought out a homeware line I was so excited. I look at the current collections whenever I'm in store but can never seem to settle on anything to take home with me. Their range isn't the cheapest, but when you find something that just clicks, you can't let it go! That day will come...

03 Canon EOS M
A DSLR is the crown jewel of a budding photographer or blogger's possessions and I would love to invest in a nice solid Canon EOS -something- one day. At the moment, I like the look of the M for its compact size. Lenses are sold separately to the M's body at most retailers so I have a feeling that it'll work out burning a hole in my pocket but having the flexibility and capabilities of a fully manual camera is my ultimate goal someday. I love the depth of field that an SLR's capabilities lend and the way playing with the settings can translate into a completely different mood and environment on (digital) film.

04 NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
I have wanted this for too long. Excellent coverage and staying power, by one of the best beauty brands, and not horrendously marked up on Australian shores? Yes please!

05 Portmans dress
I love weddings. I do not, however, love having to find something appropriate to wear to attend said weddings. I think Portmans have some lovely styles and while I shy away from them because of the excessive price tags, I think this is a gorgeous dress that could be worth the investment. Hey, it ain't white, it ain't black and it ain't poofy.

06 Maroon 5 'V' 2015 Tour
I love Maroon 5. Nothing Lasts Forever really got me hooked and since then I've loved Won't Go Home Without YouNever Gonna Leave This BedIf I Never See Your Face Again and now Maps, Sugar, In Your Pocket and Leaving California. I'm already going to see Taylor Swift's 1989 concert in December, which is an extraordinary treat, so I really don't NEED to see Maroon 5. I popped my concert cherry with the Paper Kites last year and I'm super keen for 1989.

07 Michael Kors Selma bag
This is 100% a copycat move, poached off Lena, who seems to invest in the nicest bags- she introduced to me the Mulberry Alexa which has been my goal bag ever since, and when she posted about her navy Selma I fell in love. So chic, yet roomy, and the textured, structured style is so clean-cut. In reality I think I'll most likely settle for a Mulberry Alexa replica until I graduate and start full-time work.

08 Magnetic chalkboard
This is something completely attainable, as it's just over $10 from Officeworks. I've been loving the look of chalk markers after I purchased one to use to write myself to-do lists on my mirror. The novelty of having it on my mirror wore off after it started to hinder me actually using my mirror for mirroring purposes so I had a quick look around and this came up. It's small but I think it'll suit my to-do listing needs quite nicely.
