my birthday wishlist

  1. gucci crossbody bag   |   2. dyson hairdryer   |   3. invisibobble hair tie  |   4. charlotte tilbury skin shimmer  (i’ve tried in store and this stuff is amazing)  |   5. white sports bra   |   6. black sports bra   |   7. lace two piece set   |   8. david yurman bangle   |   9. monogrammed suit case   |   10. jimmy choo wedges

Well friends, you read that right… today is my birthday! I usually am so awkward about letting people know when it is, but my mom recently gave me a good old “Kate what the heck. People want to know or THEY feel awkward!” (You know those moments your mom is completely justified in her condescension? This was one of those moments.) So there you have it! Yay for birthdays!

Today I wanted to share with y’all my birthday wishlist. In true strategic fashion, I’ve loaded it up with items on the more expensive side that I’d never buy for myself. And I guarantee you the same mother who you just read about is reading this now thinking “In her dreams!” And so yes… maybe they’re dream world wishes, but fun to list out all of the same!

One item I’m really intrigued by is this Dyson hair dryer. First off, how crazy does that thing look?! But I’ve heard incredible things about it, and so I’m curious! I’d love to know if you have one, and what your experience has been with it if so!

I feel like I can never say this enough… I LOVE y’all. Thanks for stopping by today! I’m celebrating with a manicure and spin class today, and a crawfish boil with my family tomorrow! Bring on the cake.

Love from Texas,

    I know that dysentery dryer is pretty rad, but I’m a die hard for my t3 dryer, also available at sephora. I picked it up for a birthday for under $100 at marshalls but if I had the funds I would have totally paid full price for it. I have the thickest hair and what used to take me twenty min to a half hour to dry now takes me (this morning to be specific) 8 min to dry! Hair doesn’t feel crunchy and is salon smooth. Definitely worth considering

    Happy Belated Birthday!

    I have the Dyson hairdryer – Christmas gift! It. is. amazing. So many different *magnetic* attachments that do dreamlike things in a quick fashion to your hair. I have long, thick, and curly hair. This beast gives me a fantastic looking blow out in about 15 minutes. I highly recommend it!

    I’m very intrigued by the invisible hair ties. Will have to check those out!
