Fabulous 30th Birthday Wish List

At the end of this month I’m turning 30! My twenties have been amazing – I completed my undergraduate degree, moved to Chicago, held my first job, got married to a wonderful guy, moved to North Carolina, completed my masters degree, started a great job at Elon, purchased a home and adopted a rescue pup. That’s a lot in 10 years. I can’t believe I will be leaving my twenties behind, but I am excited to see what the next decade has in store. I’m loving this advice  Rachel Rosenbloom  shared about turning 30 – it doesn’t sound so bad at all.

I’m looking forward to celebrating my 30th birthday with family and friends in Chicago. Delicious cocktails will be flowing, gluten free birthday cake will be eaten and maybe I’ll get to open a present or two. Here are a few things on my birthday wish list.

Clockwise from top left:  Messy Box  |  Canon Selphy Printer  |  Kate Spade Saturday Freeform Small Satchel  |  Carde Blanche Washi Tape and Notecards  |  Marc by Marc Jacobs Sophisticato Halfsies Camera Cross Body  |  Coco Draws Custom “What’s in my Bag” Illustration  |  Mara Hoffman Jaguar Espadrilles Brown Motif 7 Flats   |  Kendra Scott ‘Haylee’ Stone Ring

I’m a huge fan of the scrapbooks  Elsie from A Beautiful Mess puts together. I’ve been meaning to make my own photo books with iPhone photos, but I haven’t had a chance to print my photos, which is why I’m asking for  a Canon Selphy wireless printer. Of course I’m a huge fun of purses and the Kate Spade Saturday satchel (it’s 40% off!) and Marc Jacobs cross body bag (on sale too!) make my list. It’s also no surprise I’ve wish listed a custom “What’s in my Bag” illustration. I think that would be so much fun hanging above my desk. I’m digging those fun espadrilles  and a sparkly Kendra Scott gem stone ring for spring.  I just discovered a fun new stationery line, Carde Blanche. I am smitten with the gold foil washi tape and beautiful succulent notecards.

Seeing my family and friends in Chicago will  be the best gift, but it’s always fun to put together a birthday wish list. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to enter the $200 PayPal cash giveaway in honor of March birthdays!
