AUGUST WISH LIST

Out of the items on my list last month, I purchased an Akola necklace (x2, great sale!), a Barbara Gerwit dress (another great sale!), and I am striking the Apple Watch off of my list because I bought a new little Fitbit instead. It was absolutely the right choice.

Custom Ring – I went to try on my new ring over the weekend and it’s still not quite ready. This process has taken way longer than I had hoped, but I can’t wait for the final result!

New Computer – This is still on hold. I’m going to wait a bit now that I am settling into new car payments.

There’s nothing else on my wish list at the moment, but I’m sure that will change come September!

JULY WISH LIST

Custom Ring – My ring is in the works and here’s a sneak peek! I’m so excited and you can be sure I will be posting about it when it is finished. Hopefully I will have it back by the end of the month.img_4944

New Computer – This is still on hold. I’m going to wait a bit now that I am settling into new car payments.

Apple Watch – I’m having second thoughts about this again. I have heard people complain about the battery life. I may wait until the next version comes out to see what improvements they have made.

Persifor Dress – I would love a Persifor dress, but may settle for a fresh Barbara Gerwit. Both are very cool and comfortable for summer and excellent for travel.

Akola Necklace – These necklaces are popping up all over the place in boutiques. I love them and with so many colors to choose from, you can bet I’m having a hard time picking just one!

Polaroid – I would love to have an old Polaroid 600 Camera. I have always wanted one and just never pulled the trigger. They are harder to find now which is such a shame. I’ll be keeping my eye out for one for certain.

MAY WISH LIST

My wish list for this month has not changed much from last month.

Custom Ring – I am saving up to have this done. It’s already at the jewelers being worked on and I can’t wait to pick it up. I’m really excited to see another one of my designs come to life. I was hoping to have the ring by the end of the month, but one of the jeweler’s machines had to be repaired and so I’m hoping to have it back sometime this month. I’m really really excited about it.

New computer – My massive old MacBook Pro from 2011 or 2012 barely even turns on anymore. I have long since removed anything and everything of importance from it and need to swap it out for a newer model. I have a jar set aside for this savings project and have sent my old laptop in to Apple for credit.

Apple Watch – I have finally decided on a color. When I get around to ordering one, I will get it in gold. I went to the Apple store and tried one on and am excited. A new computer is higher on the priority list so the Apple Watch is on the back burner for now.

New Bed Linnens – I’m really not enjoying my blue toile bedding and am thinking about getting a plain white douvet set and then picking a couple pillows that punch it up a bit. I can consign my Pottery Barn bedding if I ever decide the make the switch.

Sleeveless White Collared Blouse – This past summer I had to say goodbye to my favorite white blouse. It was a sleeveless dress shirt from Anne Taylor that I had worn almost every week in the warm weather months for four years. Luckily it’s enough of a basic that I can pretty well count on being able to find another one this summer.

BRINGING BACK THE WISH LIST

I’m not sure where I fell off track with my treat yo self updates, but I’m bringing it back.

Apple Watch – I am still trying to decide on a color. I have friends who have the all black and love it and others say the all black makes the device look so much larger on an arm. I have tiny wrists so I also want to make sure that I can get the right fit. I have tried one on in the store now and am between silver and gold. A new computer is higher on the priority list so I have plenty of time to decide on a color because it is going to take me a while to save for the computer.

iRobot – I am getting so dang tired of sweeping and vacuuming every day. I would love to just turn on a tiny vacuum and let it do its thing. They sell these at Sam’s club and I’m also keeping an eye on prices on Amazon incase either put them on sale.

New Bed Linnens – I’m already sick of looking at my blue toile bedding and am thinking about getting a plain white douvet set and then picking a couple pillows that punch it up a bit.

Sleeveless White Collared Blouse – This past summer I had to say goodbye to my favorite white blouse. It was a sleeveless dress shirt from Anne Taylor that I had worn almost every week in the warm weather months for four years.

November 2016 Treat Yo Self Update

So last month I removed this top from my list once I saw it in the store and didn’t like the quality. I did buy the tops I wanted from Ann Taylor as well as the light weight down jacket from Uniqlo. I was going to add a couple more Natori bras to my list for this month, but was able to check that off of my list before they even made the list.

  1. New handbag: I really need a fresh handbag. Mine are looking very worn. I am trying to decide if I want a bag for work or a small handbag. If I go big, I will get this new Cuyana Satchel and if I stay small, I will get this new bag by Michael Kors.
  2. A new pair of booties: I like these and these.
  3. Birkenstocks – I know. I know. They aren’t attractive, but they sure are comfortable! It’s like uggs, but better for your feet and back.
  4. Apple Watch – I still want one. Maybe I will get one for Christmas.
  5. New Bathrobe – I am still looking for a new bathrobe. I just can’t find one that I like.
  6. Bean Boots – These have been on my mental list of things to order since they are always on back order.
  7. Barbour Jacket – I have a spring weight Barbour jacket with Liberty Rose lining and really wish I had a thicker one that additional liners can zip into. This has been on my wish list for a few years and I keep buying other coats instead. I will tick this one off of my list eventually.

OCTOBER 2016 TREAT YO SELF UPDATE

  2. Another Natori Bra: My sister introduced me to her favorite bra and now it is my favorite bra.
  3. These 3 tops from Ann Taylor: One, Two and Three
  4. This top from Ann Taylor Loft 
  5. Uniqlo Down Jacket: This jacket is great for every day use and for travel. I would love to have one of these in olive. I’m going to wait to buy one until it’s much cooler. No sense in buying one now while temperatures are still in the mid to high 80s!
  6. A new pair of booties: I like these and these.
  7. Apple Watch – I still want one. Maybe I will get one for Christmas.
  8. New Bathrobe – I am still looking for a new bathrobe. I just can’t find one that I like.

SEPTEMBER 2016 TREAT YO SELF UPDATE

Last month I didn’t tick a single item off of my list. I also haven’t changed my list very much. I am beginning to go through seasonal closet rage so you can be sure that there will be a lot of updates to my Poshmark page. I’m more purge and less purchase at the moment.

Because I don’t have any interesting photos for this post, please enjoy this photo of my grandmother dressed for May Day back when she went to Souther Sem (now Southern Virginia University).

  1. Apple Watch – I still want one, but I’m going to wait on this.
  2. New Bathrobe – I have been looking for a new set for over a year now. I have the same robe from Pottery Barn that my great aunt gave me when I graduated high school. The robe has really held up, but the slippers bit the dust a couple of years ago… I loved those slippers. I haven’t found a robe or slippers to replace them so I’m still holding on to the same ratty robe. If anyone has a suggestion for a quality,  soft, midi length robe I’m very interested!
  3. Bean Boots – These have been on my mental list of things to order since they are always on back order.
  4. Barbour Jacket – I have a spring weight Barbour jacket with Liberty Rose lining and really wish I had a thicker one that additional liners can zip into. This has been on my wish list for a few years and I keep buying other coats instead. I will tick this one off of my list eventually.
