Hello ladies (and gents)! I have always loved being a spring baby because the spring is such an exciting time. The trees are becoming full again, school is finishing up, summer plans and trends are surfacing, and I turn a year older! If I had to choose a different time of year to have my birthday though, it would be autumn. I prefer fall fashion to summer trends because during this time of year, style is timeless. Patrick has a Halloween birthday (jealous) so I always have so much fun picking out gifts for him--in fact, I may or may not already have this year's planned 😉.
To honor my love for fall shopping and wish for an autumn birthday, I have compiled a wishlist for all of you lucky fall babies out there! And who knows, maybe I'll end up justifying a reason to treat myself before some of these limited edition packages run out...
1 | The first item on my list is this Coco Mademoiselle fragrance set. My mom (and Yorkie-Chihuahua, Gigi, by default) has been wearing this fragrance since Christmas (and lusting over it for almost a whole year before that) and I never get tired of it. Every time she walks into a room, the air around her begins to smell magnificent. She carries the full bottle (not just a travel size) in her purse at all times, so occasionally I'll steal a spritz. This set is an even better deal than just purchasing a regular bottle of my own, because you get the full size and the travel size, all while saving money!
2 & 4 | I selected two different gloss sets because I have yet to try either of these products, and am itching to!
The Saint Laurent gloss trio colors are not as great as the colors that come in the Chanel Glossimer Trio (in my opinion), but it is a much better deal.
Sets like these are a great way to test out a product for what it really does and not just base your conclusion on color. When you do that, you're more likely to miss out on a product just because the one you tried out was too frosty or didn't blend well with your natural color.
3 | When I got my camera for my birthday a few years ago, I opted for just the body because it was much more cost effective that way and I thought my old lens was still in great condition. A little more than two years later, and boy, do I notice how much my lens struggles! It is super slow to autofocus and will grab a spot on the wall to focus on rather than the smiling face in front of it. Super annoying. This is why I decided to add a camera lens to my wishlist. Both this one and this one are great options and quite affordable, too, as far as camera lenses go!
5 | Based on the luxury beauty kick I've been on lately, it won't be long before I bite the bullet and try one of these. Packaging, presentation, color combinations, they have it all! The question is, which one do I choose...
Hope you enjoyed my fall "birthday" wishlist! Xoxo
