Friday Favs: Birthday Wishlist!

I can't even believe that I've gone this far into August without mentioning that it's Jenn month. Signs that I'm getting old? Perhaps :)

I like to make a birthday wish list vision board each August - mostly because this is one of the few times of the year I have some money to play with, mixed with labor day sales, and I end up wanting allthethings. My list is surprisingly small this year....most of the things I want are $10 or less. I guess that's a sign that I've been pretty blessed, lately! Though to be honest...if the fall stuff was out, there'd be a lot of it here.

(Did anyone else hear that stores are trying to back off from early holidays? I've heard that Target pushed their holiday decor back a couple weeks from last year, interesting.)

birthday wishlist

I've got my eye on....

+ This Universal Thread triple compartment bag in cognac. Isn't it the perfect color for fall outfits? And it's organized in such a great way so I don't loose all my things all the time.

+ I know it's silly to put a $1 item on a list like this, but how gorgeous is this Greenroom folder? You can't buy them online, but they have them at my Target and I want to get a few to organize with.

+ I'm not the best at using a planner, but this gorgeous watercolor one by BlueSky juuust might make me want to use it consistently. I've got big plans to get myself in order this school year!

+ I have been looking forward to Sweetener all summer! And to be honest, since it's out today, I've probably already downloaded it by the time you're reading this. ;)

+ I pretty much exclusively use Essie nail polish, and I discovered a new color they came out with this summer called Mercury In Retrograde. UM, need it! I was born under a mercury retrograde, and while it makes everyone feel crazy, I actually feel like myself during them!

+ And yes, I'm one of the few people that have yet to own an Instant Pot. I WANT ONE!!!

+ I also found this set of black and white gingham napkins from Hearth & Hand, and I loooove theeeem. Fall and Winter are a bit of a buffalo check explosion up in here.

I'm also hoping to use my 40% off at Tony Walker on a new North old one just doesn't wash well anymore, and I'd really like it to have a hood.

These are some of the things that would have been on my list had I not already scooped them up and fell in love with them :)

+ I got this s'well bottle during the Nordstrom sale, and you guys...I LOVE IT! I had no idea this was missing from my life!! Not only is it the prettiest shade of millennial pink, I can fill it up with ice water before bed and it's still cold by the time I eat lunch. (Why yes, I am that bad at drinking water.)

+ I joined a lot of used book groups on Facebook recently and I noticed that they all kept talking about so I went to investigate. They get wholesale discounts and carry "scratch and dent" copies of new and popular books, making them anywhere from $.79 - $12 (they might go beyond that, but nothing I saw yet has.) I bought a box of new, mostly YA novels for $35 and now I'm obsessed! (Also, their warehouse is in Buffalo!) (Use THIS link and get $10 off your first order! It's a referral link so I'll get some points towards free books, too.)

+ Tarte Shape Tape is a dream. come. true. I use both the concealer and foundation, and they are so gorgeous yet still breathable - I love them! They are vegan and free of all the extra-nasty stuff like parabens and phthalates, and I love them both to pieces!

+ I wrote about this in my PM routine post from Monday, but this glow serum is one of my favorite things in life right now, no lies. SO. GOOD.

+ This set of reusable cups from Starbucks is the CUTEST! It was only $9.95 for the set, and I love them all! I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to gift a few of them....I may even buy a second set to give out at Christmas with a little $5 GC inside for a drink. It comes out to like $1.65ish per cup, so it's such an affordable (and adorable) thing to give!! But I'm also ridiculously obsessed with them for my own use. ;) OH and you get a discount at Starbucks when you bring them in to be filled! (Don't buy them at the link I shared, they're almost 3x the price - check in your local Starbucks for them!)

I'm linking up with Friday Favorites today - happy weekend, loves!!!
