My Birthday Wish List!

I first smelled this when I was in Hermes with High Heeled Life.  The lady helping HHL smelled so beautiful I just had to comment on her perfume.  This is what she was wearing and she sent me home with a collection of perfume samples, all tied up in a signature Hermes bag.  Sometimes the experience is just as important as the product.  This perfume, to me smells like violets and just works on me.


In an attempt to break out of my pink, and gold shoe rut, I thought a nice pair of these in orange would be nice.  Tangerine is the colour of the year!


I have several KJP pieces (and have even bought them for the Suburban Prince) so I was very excited when he announced his new spring line!  This one is sold exclusively by my friend, The Preppy Princess and is perfect for summer in pink and green.  **Acquired**  Did you know The Preppy Princes also carries Royal Ribbons now? 


I have a thing for bees.  Regardless of the fact I am deathly allergic to bee and wasp stings there is someone in my life whom I adore and their name begins with B so anything I see with bees on them has a tendency to find it's way home with me.  This bangle comes in cream as well. (Wimberly)


This came in a couple of my Luxe Boxes and smells wonderful!  I had no idea how much I like irises!  Every time I wear it I wonder what smells so good...then I remember, c'est moi!


Now that I am back down to my pre-baby weight/shape/size I can wear belts again.  A neutral bee buckle will do the trick I suspect!  It could go with just about anything! (Wimberly)

I find more and more I need to take my laptop with me to meetings and other exciting places.  I don't have a case for it so this will come in handy!  It will also make quite an impact when  take it to Scotland!  Another adorable item from The Preppy Princess.  **Acquired**


I am undecided about this jacket.  I have the same one in navy blue and I wear it all the time.  I guess I just wish the green was a bit more...lime.  Brighter.  I will think on this more and decide if I actually need yet another jacket and if this shade of green would work in my life. (LLB)


I have had my eye on this for years.  I gave one away on my blog back in ohhhhhh 2010 maybe?  Can you believe I don't actually have one?!  As I have an avid note writer I think I would get so much use out of this.  I can see me now, poolside, cocktail, writing letters to all of my aunties, and friends...le sigh.  I think we can guess my favourite shopping destination by now as this too can be procured at The Preppy Princess.  I wonder if it can be monogrammed?  I am imagining pink thread on the green one or green thread on the navy blue one!  BTW - I like a diamond monogram, natch.


I've decided to finally take up needlepoint and thought this belt would be a good start!  And one can never go wrong with happy whales!  I think I will order it in navy with lime green whales.  I plan to keep it in my bag so anytime I need something to do (haha) I can pull it out and do a little stitching.  (Etsy)  **Acquired**


Once I finish the whale belt I want to make this one.  How adorable is this pattern!?  I might not even get it done until my next birthday but I can't resist this cute little beach house! (Etsy)


So there you have it!  With 27 days lead time and my wish list in hand I am sure no one will have any trouble finding the perfect presents for me.  Right?!


Have a fabulous day!

I love everything on your birthday wish list from the perfume down to the needlepoint belt. I have a Burberry coat on my wishlist also. I was thinking black but now that you mentioned navy...

Do you want to give me your husbands email so I can share your list? :)

I love those Tory Burch flats! They are super cute, and they come in a ton of colors.

We're flattered to be included with such illustrious company, my goodness, thank you! I had no idea you were so attached to bees, what a wealth of possibilities that creates! The needlepoint belts are both TDF, the pink whales just went on my Pinterest. :)

Sending you wishes for a happy week!

Love that laptop case! Infusion d'iris is one of my favorite perfums! It smells heavenly! xo

Perfect list! I am also coveting a pair of Tory Burch flats. We are going out of town next month and the hotel we're staying at has a Tory Burch store and I have been thinking about pulling the trigger on the shoes. But, we'll see. I do love the orange. I already have an orange handbag so I feel that for once in my life I am trendy. HA

Lots of goodies to wish for here! I do like the jacket, but would also want it to be brighter to carry into Spring.

I love all the loot on your "birthday wish list!" I have a sample of that Hermes fragrance but I haven't tried it yet. I bet it's fabulous! Love the belts! And...You simply must get the orange Revas. I have them and now I've got my eye on the orange Tory Belt belt. Lord have mercy, it never ends...

Hope you get it ALL!!!!!

I love the tangerine shoes. They are great - the "in" color this season. The Lilly case is fab, too!

I hope you have a great birthday!

Definately want to smell the Hermes perfume I've been looking for "my signature" smell but haven't been able to find it. I wonder if this is it.

Pretty preppy birthday wish list :) Wouldn't say no to any of this...

I find it so neat that you're allergic to bees but you love them. I'm allergic to apples but I love them, as well. Whenever people see me with something with an apple motif they're confused.. "why do you have apples if you're allergic?".. No one else gets it!
