In 12 days I will be one year older. Whilst I am excited about my upcoming birthday, I am also feeling like it has come out of nowhere and I am not quite done with being 25. Then again, because of the leap year I did get a bonus day as a 25 year old so I can't exactly complain.
I must confess that I have been feeling uncomfortable with my upcoming birthday because of last year's sadness which occurred so unexpectedly. I can't believe that it's almost been a year and I guess I am not quite at peace with it yet. These things take time and I am so grateful for the memories.
I have been asked by quite a few people what is on my wish list this year and whilst I initially thought of nothing, I decided to create a little birthday wish list. Whilst nothing on it is essential, it is more of a mood board and it seems like I am in a rather gold fase at the moment.
grandma ring. And who doesn't want 14k gold? I am also in a navy fase at the moment and the anchor earrings from J.Crew are so gorgeous. They initially had a matching bracelet but it has sold out. I also love watches, as has been previously documented, and this Michael Kors one is a beauty!
Lily from Mulberry is an uber gorgeous bag and I think it will stay on my wish list for a long time. I have also stuck to my New Years Resolution and haven't gone bag shopping. It hasn't actually been hard because I have been a very busy lady lately. I am still striving for the work/life balance and am getting there slowy.
I have heard so many amazing things about Tom Ford's makeup collection and this gorgeous lippy in the colour Wild Ginger is absolutely beautiful! It is one of those absolute luxury products that are a joy to behold and gorgeous to apply. I am also way behind the times with my iPhone 4, and am feeling the need to upgrade to the iPhone 5 because I've heard so many good things about the camera and a bigger screen wouldn't hurt either. The battery on my phone is also draining really quickly because the phone is getting quite old. The phone cover from DVF is utterly gorgeous too.
The biggest item on my birthday wish list is good health and utter happiness for my friends and family. It's always about the small things.
