Birthday Wishlist

Birthday Wishlist -1

My birthday is around the corner, in a few days to be exact and I feel old AF! I’m turning twenty-eight on the first of April and I can’t believe another birthday is biting me in the arse. I only have two years left in my twenties and I’ve definitely noticed that my priorities have changed so much. It’s been tradition to share a Birthday Wishlist, I thought I would share mine because who can argue with tradition.

As mentioned my priorities have changed a lot. The last year so much has happened in my personal life and all I can wish for a good health with myself and my family. I also hope to build a stronger relationship with my family as the past few years we have really been out of touch for numerous reasons.

For more material items for my birthday wishlist here are some items I would be content with receiving if the Birthday Gods are good to me!

MacBook Air | This is definitely something I know I won’t be getting, but a girl can dream can’t she? I do have a MacBook Air which I bought second hand. It still works so well and I have not had any issues with it. I would just like to upgrade to a newer version.

Pixi Beauty | I have read so many reviews about Pixi Beauty! Sadly none of their products can be bought in South Africa. The only thing about these amazing brands that pisses me off it that they are mainly available in Europe and America. South African beauty enthusiasts would also love to try your products!

Colourpop Pressed Eyeshadow Palettes | I have not purchased from Colourpop in over two years. I have been wanting to try their pressed eyeshadow palettes since the released. I have just been saving money for the wedding so haven’t been able to spoil myself with more Colourpop.

Light Up Mirror | I have been slowly but surely buying items to hopefully put in my beauty area once Justin and I move. One of these items is a Light Up Mirror I’ve seen at Vanity Lane which makes these mirrors!

Ring Light | I would love a ring light to up my photography of the blog. Especially during Winter, the lighting can suck so a ring light would definitely help with the dilemma!

What items are on your Birthday Wishlist this year? Let me know in the comment section below.

    Check out – I bought my Pixi Glow Tonic there for the best price I could find anywhere in SA – R450 for the biggest bottle! They don’t sell all of the products, and they don’t always have stock, but they refresh their stock on the site often, and often have sales!
    I have a dresser from Vanity Line and they’re amazing.. I plan on doing a full photo and ‘tour’ of it when I have my storage all at it’s best!
    Another tip – I actually bought one of those round selfie lights (basically a mini ring light) off Wish and it’s almost identical to the pretty ones on Muse. It has 3 light settings and I’ve been using it as a mini ring light when I take pictures – works amazingly!

    A ring light has been on my wishlist for so long! It would be so useful for blogging and Youtube x

    Oh you definitely need to get yourself some of the pressed eyeshadows from Colourpop! Really recommend them, especially some of the palettes are beautiful and a great way to try them! Hope you have a lovely birthday!! xx

    That’s a great wishlist! Hmm. probably new camera and laptop, my Macbook Pro is dying because it lacks in RAM and my work is killing my laptop (because I have to use my own computer at work 🙁 ). Pixi is such a great brand, but sadly, here in Poland only 3 products are available 🙁

    That’s a very nice list Candice. I love my MAC Book Air. I just bought one for my mom. I hope Pixi expands. They have some really good products. A ring light is on my list as well. It really helps when the days get shorter.

    Great wish-list, I haven’t heard about pixi beauty before, I have to check them out. What’s more, my future father-in-law was born on 1st of April as well, ha 😉

      I am obsessed, I have one but its getting old – It still works so well though will only replace it if I really have to if mine breaks or something. Laptop is my life.

    I highly reccomend a ring light! I purchased one for my birthday which was this month & it has been a true game changer. I’ve figured out how to take my usual flat lays on a white background (some playing around with it is definitely needed) but it’s 100% worth it! I have complete freedom to take photos whenever I need / feel like!

    Awesome list Candice! I think you can get Pixi from Samika if I am not mistaken, but it is overpriced.
