The birthday wishlist that was

Welcome to my birthday wishlist ‘not gonna buy’ list ‘shit’s so ‘spensive, yo’ list

I normally keep a running list throughout the year and give my mom those ideas, but this is the rejects list. Because unfortunately I have rich ass taste. Whoops? And you know, it’s freaking expensive. And I’m not rolling in cash. And nobody I know is bathing in the green either. So this is my imaginary list. Or, a list of things I might get myself as a splurge at a later stage.

Winter knit jersey (like almost R900. For some wool? WHAT.)
Trenery has a green one that is sooo nice. This black one is also great. Size XL. So expensive. Cry. I picked up the green one on sale. Woohoo!!

Scarf (actually somewhat affordable, but do people buy scarves willingly?)
This arrow print scarf in black is really cute. I went and stroked it yesterday and it feels nice 😀

Dolce & Gabbana – Pour Femme (Price: I can’t even type it out)
So yummy, but so pricey. Gah.

Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner – Chocolate Truffle (+/- R275)
I tried this out at Edgars the other day and oh my. But I really couldn’t bring myself to buying it. Also, the Bobbi Brown Pink Gold Sheer Lip Colour (no idea price) is pretty. And the Pretty Powerful mascara (R310 I think. Part of proceeds go to a charity, wooohoo!) But yeah. I feel bad buying high end. Well. No. Yes. No. Sometimes.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine #52 Fetiche or #59 Elise or #90 Mutine (Like R300?)
One word: splurge. Which makes me think of dirty things. Hmm.

MAC 217 brush (R265) and MAC 219 brush (R219)
Cos really. If I’m gonna spend R200+ on myself, I’m kinda going to edge towards buying multiple items rather than drop a chunk of money on just one thing. But they’re really soft and I’ve been lusting.

Anglepoise lamp – black (no idea $$)
Kinda like this one:
Cos it’s bad ass.

Pumpkin Latte candle (R270), Pumpkin Spice candle (R270) and Tangerine and Vanilla candle (R245)
All from
They just smell so good, but also, I can’t really justify a R200+ on just one candle.

Macaron gift set (R525)
My heart did little giddy-ups when I saw this… and then sank (drowned) when I saw the price. Oh well. I mostly just want the book and the heat resistant silicone tray thing.

By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."
