Current Wish List

July 30, 2014
Since I'm between jobs right now and haven't been buying much, my wish list has gotten long!  Here are the items that I hope to be able to pick up in the near future:

*Lilly Pulitzer Trippin' and Sippin' 2014-2015 Large Agenda- I had a separate idea notebook just for blogging, but to organize my posts better and to remember when certain link ups were taking place, I started to write my blog ideas in the planner I'm using now.  If I'm being honest, the one I have currently is a very cheap monthly planner that I got for just a few bucks.  While I'd like to continue to use it, after I write my blog topics in, there isn't a whole lot or room for anything else.  That's why I'm wanting a planner that has a daily spread (for more details) as well as a monthly one.  I've been researching planners, and this Lilly Pulitzer one seems to have everything that I'm looking for--a great design on the cover, an elastic bound closure, pocket folders, etc.  It is $28.00 + free shipping on the Lilly Pulitzer site, which is cheaper than both the Whitney English and Erin Condren planners.  I feel like I should just go ahead and splurge on this planner soon because it is a 17 month planner that starts next month!!  If I wait to buy it, I'll just be missing out on days that I could be using the planner for, right??  ;)

*Top Coats- Heather blogged about her love of Seche Vite topcoat over on Stephanie's blog.  My friend Autumn raved about Nicole's 3-in-1 Top Coat.  Both girls said their manis lasted at least 10 days using these respective top coats.  With the top coat I'm currently using, my polish usually chips after 5 days.  I'd love it if I could extend the amount of time my manicure lasts for and would like to compare the two brands.

*Sheer Floral Print Kimono Top  I don't necessarily follow all the trends (still own nothing pineapple!), but once I saw Charlotte Russe's floral kimono tops I knew at least one of them would be making this list!  I'm drawn to a lot of floral designs and this kimono looks comfy and flowy.  Plus, since it's going to be layered on top of shirts, I can style differently depending on the look I'm going for.  (I'll probably have about 2 different looks...face it, no fashion blogger here!)

*Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Shampoo and Conditioner-  The reason why I'm so interested in NYM's shampoo and conditioner is because I already own NYM's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, which is one of my favorite hair products.  It makes my naturally wavy hair even wavier, plus it smells good...like coconut but not too strong.  I'm hoping the shampoo and conditioner smell similar (or just like) the texturizing sea salt spray and that using all three products together will make my hair wavier (and not frizzy) longer.

*The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern- Rebekah wrote a mini review of this book and described it as "one of the best books" she's read "in the past few years." A simple summary of the book is that it's about two magicians that compete against each other in a Victorian circus.  I find the idea of a traveling circus pretty fascinating and the plot of the story sounds intriguing, so I really want to purchase the book!

*FJELL Bed frame with storage- I left my old bed behind in Ohio, so I have to get a new one sooner rather than later.  Right now I'm just sleeping on two mattresses that Ev's aunt let me borrow!  The bed I like the most is this bed frame from Ikea.  It's black so it will match everything, it looks sturdy enough, and it has four drawers for storage underneath!  I really need that extra space since I'm sharing an apartment now.  The only bad thing is that the closest Ikea to me is in Atlanta, so picking up the bed would take all day and I'd probably have to rent a truck.



*Love With Food Monthly Subscription Service- Who doesn't love snacks?  These are sent right to your door for $10/month, and some of the past boxes I looked at seemed to have a decent variety of savory and sweet snacks.  Each box includes at least eight snacks, there's free shipping, and for every box purchased a meal gets donated to a food bank.

the night circus is one of my all time favorites. it's whimsical, you have to go into that knowing you're going to need to suspend belief a little. enjoy it.

I love that bed frame!

Brittney, Breaking Free said...

Thats a cool subscription box and I really like that they donate to the food bank!!!!

The Rachael Way said...

What a cool snack box! I love it! And yes girl, get the planner. You won't regret it!

Lora Ashley said...

I use the NYM spray too and love it! I want to pick up the same shampoo. Saw NYM stuff was on sale at Walgreen's last week. Not sure about this week though but you may want to check it out just in case :-)

I also want the Love Food Membership. I believe first month is free you just have to pay shipping. I've been wanting to try it. I cancelled my IPSY membership so that means I can get this one right? ;-)

Paulina @ Color Me Brave said...

Love Seche Vite top coat. Only one I have ever used.

Rebecca B. Bird said...

I really want a kimono top like that too. Does your Ikea have any sort of delivery service? I'm sure it varies from store to store, but ours will deliver furniture for a flat rate of about $90. It's not cheap but it's certainly easier than renting a truck and driving it all over the place. Worth investigating!

Nancy @ Neatly-Packaged said...

Ooo that kimono is cute! I am currently using that exact same NYM shampoo and conditioner!! Smells really pretty but drys your hair out a bit. Maybe it's just me. Thank you for sharing!

Christine @ Kouisse's Korner said...

I have been using the 2013-2014 Lilly Pulitzer planner. I have been known in the past to buy a planner and use it only for a couple of months... but for some reason I have had this planner for 12 months I am still not tired of it! Go ahead and splurge!

The Brown Eyed Sunshine said...

I love Lilly planners! I can't wait to start using the new one I recently purchased from their new collection. I love the "trippin' and sippin'" print! I definitely recommend the splurge, you won't regret it :)

Tricia Coniglio said...

I like that bed frame! I use my phone for blog ideas and every so often I find ideas from months ago that I still haven't written on. I like the beach hair products but I can't get my hair to be really pretty like some girls do. So I stick with simple :)

Taneja's Bride said...

I really enjoy texturizing my hair - definitely going to check that out! <3 Sounds like a cool product! :)

Melanie Smith said...

A new bed!! That is such a life changing yet simple addition to life!

Ann Marie DelFavero said...

That planner is adorable and I LOVE the bed!

Tiffany Khyla said...

That is a totally justifiable reason to buy the planner. I'm always on the hunt for a good blogging planner, and that one is super cute and sounds awesome. GO FOR IT! I'm such a bad influence. I'm in love with that kimono. I've been on the hunt for one. I guess I'll need to stop by Charlotte Russe.

Alyssa Zapinski said...

The beach babe hair stuff is a dream. The spray is even better! And I'm with you on wanting a lily planner...they're too cute!

Kristen said...

oooh i want that planner now! thats not bad for a 17 month planner!
sooo take my opinion with a grain of salt but I did not enjoy the night circus at all.

Lix Hewett said...

That bed frame, aaaah.

Emily Bylund said...

I am loving that Lily agenda too! I really want a new Kate Spade agenda!

Jess said...

Ahh I would love to hava a bed frame with storage.. I may need to invest in one of those. I'm also going to check out the shampoo& conditioner.

Angie said...

I've been wanting a fancy planner/agenda for awhile too. I use my planner daily. It's just a cheapo from Walmart but it does the trick. Maybe I'll put a new one on my Christmas list :)

Raewyn @ Be A Warrior Queen said...

I hope you get at least one thing on your list (the planner would be my biggest want!!)

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Good to know! I hope mine will be able to last that long, too!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I like fantasies, so I'll have no problem suspending my belief. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the book!!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I know!! The extra storage is exactly what I need...plus, I won't have to worry about cleaning under my bed. :)

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I think $10 for the box is a pretty good price, too.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I bought the planner!!! I actually got the pink one...can NOT wait for it to get here!!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I haven't seen any Walgreen's by me, unfortunately. Ohhh, getting the first box for free makes it even more tempting.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Good to hear some more positive reviews!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

See, the problem is that the Ikea is in Atlanta which is 3.5 hours away from me...so I'm guessing it's going to be more than $90. I'll still look into it because I really want that bed frame!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Hmmm...my hair is already pretty dry since I just got blonde highlights put in.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Oh yay! I did end up buying it. I keep obsessively checking the front porch for it, too!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I ordered it and hope that it's a good investment.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Oh, I'm not good with hair either. It helps that my hair is already naturally wavy!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I hope it works for you!!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

For real!! Once I get it, I'll feel like I'm "home," rather than just sleeping in someone else's borrowed bed.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I hope it helps me stay better organized...I am not even using the planner I currently have and I ended up forgetting to do something important last week!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

They have a bunch of other cute ones and they just had another 30% off sale! I guess I'm a bad influence, too. :)

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

It's really not and the free shipping helped!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

The dividers look adorable and there is a section for horoscopes.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

It's simple and practical!! Plus, I need one!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

From everything I read on it, the Lilly planner sounds like it is the best fit for me!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I want to keep some winter clothes and accessories in the drawers! I have very limited space where I'm at now.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Before I started blogging the cheapo ones worked well for me, but after I write out my planned posts and link ups I might want to join, there isn't enough room for anything else!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Thanks! I did get the planner, but I still want/need that bed frame! It's a bigger purchase, so I'm probably going to wait on that and keep hunting for something similar that I could easily get in the area I'm in.
