birthday wishlist 2016 - The Dainty Squid

birthday wishlist 2016

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

The end of July means one thing to me - that my birthday is rapidly approaching! August 2nd! Wooo! I've only been counting down the days since...uh... my last birthday? Just a few more weeks now! It's basically tradition by now to share a birthday wishlist here on the blog (2013, 2014, 2015) so here's 2016's list...


1. Yep, still dreaming of owning a full sized skeleton! It'd just fit so perfect with my decor!

2. I somehow don't own a black camera bag, well not one that looks nice with dresses. This one from Epiphanie sounds awesome! It can even be worn three ways; shoulder, cross-body or as a backpack. How cool is that!?

3. Kat Von D's tattoo liner in Trooper!

4. This tank top! Because maybe owning something not black and white striped would be okay for once? ...Only if it has a cactus on it though. 

5. An Ulta gift card would rule! I really do love trying out new make-up and as much as I would love to receive a basket of things I don't really trust anyone to pick out things for me yet. Top of my wishlist would be Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. I've read such good things about it and I love Stila!

6. I really want a kayak. A few years ago a friend's mom was talking about how much she loved finding marbles on a secret beach she kayaked to. My interested was piqued then but it wasn't until recently that Jeff and I started talking about how much fun kayaks would be. There are tons of places nearby to go, and it really does sound like the best way to spend an afternoon! Totally not picky about what kind or what it looks like right now. As a beginner, I really just want something that will get me around the lake without any leaks! In true if you give a mouse a cookie form, I would need all the fixings to haul it too.

7. Film! Always need film! I have two road trips coming up this summer, and instant film is an essential.

8. Because a girl can never have enough pairs of Palladium Boots! For real though, the more I walk the more I love and appreciate Palladium. This pair would look SO cute with dresses, which is essential for summer!

9.  I'm still mourning the loss of my last pair of Joules rain boots. I like this bee pair! I know, who in the heck puts rain boots on their birthday wishlist? I wore mine a ton though. Never really realized just how often until they got a hole in them!

10. This bedding is what my dreams are made of. I prefer comforters instead of duvets and their separate covers but I guess I could make an exception in this case! Seriously, that bed looks PERFECT.

Another short, albeit expensive, list this year. There are lots of non-tangible things that I really want for my birthday as well. Bike rides and ice cream with friends (are you reading this Jake, Anji, Jason? Hi! Put air in your tires!), time spent with family, and of course, a roadtrip or three with my favorite dude. Maybe a trip to an abandoned hospital too? That sounds nice!

  1. Get A kayak! Seriously the best thing we bought ever! We have had ours 2 years and have created a kayak armada with our friends. I live to explore islands and rivers and beaches all over. My birthday is coming up this weekend and we have a trip planned to kayak a new river I have never explored with 15 of our friends. It is addicting and contagious.

    1. Ah! That sounds like so much fun. I know I will be completely obsessed when I finally get one. It's really just a matter of where would I store it right now.

    2. I saw this one the last time I went to REI. Not sure if there are any around you but this would make it easy to store and carry. https://www.rei.com/product/877618/oru-kayak-bay-folding-kayak?cm_mmc=cse_PLA_GOOG-_-8776180001&CAWELAID=120217890000809319&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=16033108600&CATCI=aud-87986356584:pla-153320355880&lsft=cm_mmc:cse_PLA_GOOG&gclid=CjwKEAjw5cG8BRDQj_CNh9nwxTUSJAAHdX3fkqoweD4iUVoi96NVmpEczWYUWxXMkIjUYBt8VbYvihoCwT7w_wcB I also have that inflatable tandem kayak for when friends want to come with us. I figure if you can white water raft or tube with an inflatable than you can kayak with one also. The do not track as well in the water but for a fun float it will do.

  2. I love your list! I just bought my mom the 2 seater intex kayak on amazon for only $99 for her 60th bday and we took it to the lake this past weekend. Best purchase ever! So durable, inexpensive and fit 2 people! Here's the link if you are interested: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A7EXF4C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    1. Inflatable scares me so much but that thing really does have awesome reviews (and that totally solves my "where in the heck would I store it" problem.

  3. I had no idea you could get a full-size skeleton for that cheap! *Adds it to my Amazon wish list*

    1. I actually think that one might be a little bit expensive too. I was obsessing around Christmastime and I remember seeing them for around $100 for something that was bottom of the line but still school acceptable.

  4. I have those bee boots! I can't believe I lived in Cleveland for about 8 years without a pair of rain boots, but I'm so glad I went with Joules--they're amazing!

  5. I really hope you get that skeleton because it's so amazing and I'd be so jealous. The multi-way camera back is super dope! I just treated myself to a new camera bag and I'm so obsessed with it. http://store.kellymoorebag.com/collections/shop-all/products/oxford. It makes it so easy to just take my cameras with me everywhere!

    1. I'll have to check that out. I've never been overly impressed with E.L.F. but for $3 you really can't go wrong. Thanks! :)
