Birthday Wishlist

So, it's my Birthday at the end of the month...I'm turning a whopping 23! In honor of this great day, I thought I'd put together a wishlist in case any family or friends are reading...or in case you all want to send me a little something.

Birthday Wishlist

1) Mina Dress: I have a few dresses from Mina and love them all. They're all so pretty and are great quality. This one, in particular, is stunning.
2) House of Harlow Jewellery: Another favourite brand of mine. The pieces are so pretty and really unique. I am in love with that necklace.
3) Preeti Backgamon Set: I love Backgammon and the one from Preeti is handmade from gorgeous fabric and is ideal for tavelling.
4) French Connection Dress: This one reminds me of the Burberry one Emma Watson once wore. I saw it in store and it's gorgeous. I don't know when I'd wear it...but I would one day.
5) Ray Ban Aviators: The classic sunglasses. I have a stunning pair of Ray Bans and a pair of Aviators, both which I wear a lot. I reckon by having one pair of Ray Ban Aviators, they would last me a lifetime.
6) Marc Jacobs Handbag:II've been on the hunt for the perfect bag for ages, to no luck. I love this Marc Jacobs one though. It's a pretty colour and looks like it would fit quite a bit in it.
7) HP Mini Laptop: A mini laptop is perfect for a blogger. I would take it to all the events and do live blogging. I love the HP mini's as they're so compact and easy to use, and they even did a collaboration with with Vivienne Tam, producing a laptop with butterflies on.
8) New Camera: I know I only got a new camera last year, but I've become more into photography, so would love a proper SLR, that I could experiment more with, or even a better digital camera than the one I have (so I can take it into gigs).
9) Schuh Shoes: I saw these glamorous heels while at the Schuh Press Day and knew I had to have them. Look how gorgeous they are.
10) Burberry Trench: I'd love a classic coat that I could wear forever. The Burberry Trenche's are iconic and I love how well they fit.

I've also added a Mustang. Why? Well, why not?

I've had tons of great presents in my time, from jewellery to holidays. I think, one of the most creative, and one of my favourite, present was Tiffany and Co playing cards, from Leia.

But good presents are all very well and good. It's bad present's we all like to hear about. I once got a fake iPod. Oh, you read that right: FAKE iPod. It looked like a real one when I ripped the wrapping open, but after closer inspection, it was clearly fake. It was as light as paper and barely switched on properly, with the plug not fitting anywhere. Wut the worst part of this story: the relative who gave me this actually called a few weeks previously to ask whether I'd prefer gold or white gold for my Birthday. So while expecting jewellery, I got a fake iPod instead.

So what about all of you? What's the best, or worst, present you've ever got (or given)? What's on your wishlist?

I made a birthday wishlist just before my birthday and a friend actually gave me a voucher for Accessorize to add a little money to a ring I'd been thinking about buying! It works!

The sparkly heels are amazing. I think Corrine from Frock & Roll did a DIY on how to make some yourself?!

Milana said...

Love the items you've chosen. So pretty. And that Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag is perfect. I have one that's a bit different from that one and I absolutely love it. Definitely go for it even if you don't get it a a b-day present :)

LOVE House of Harlow :)

Love the look of your wishlist, the bag and trench are classic. I often get lavender scented stuff from my nan. It makes me feel ill. And massively oversized hideous clothes!

We Are The Crowd said...

A fake ipod? Oh lordy that's bad. And kinda embarrassing for the relative in question i'll bet! I once bought my little brother a fake pokemon game in Malaysia, but that was for a joke - we both knew it was a fake and wanted to see whether it was in fact any good!

Great list!

beingdena said...

hey soon to be bday girl. I hope you get everything you heart desires. I have the gold sequins FC dress and it looks amazing on.

Best present I ever got was last year- mum got me my Chanel bag.


Susie said...

Haha! LOLed about the fake ipod! Great birthday pics, Sherin! Can't wait to celebrate with you when I'm back! xoxox

Susu Paris Chic said...

Our b-days are very close then... Mine in early August.

Number four is a killer. So glam.

I keep wishing for a Chanel bag. But the hubs doesn't read the CC signs. Oh well. His love is better than Chanel.

Sandra said...

Loving your list! :)

Adele said...

Ah thats burberry coat would be amazing! but only in my dreams ahaha


Kavery said...

A fake iPod? That is too sad! Hope you get the Mustang this year, Sherin!

Allison said...

Le sigh, I love your wishlist! I would die for a Burberry trench - my mom has one and I borrow it whenever possible (even though she's about 4 sizes bigger than me).
I am dying over the fake iPod! Who even knew that existed?! SO funny, and yet sad at the same time.
I think the worst gift I ever received was when I was 15 years old, and my Poppy's girlfriend gave me a little girl's Barbie skirt. Like, something you would wear when you were 6 - it literally had Barbie written on it and these big, ugly pink flowers. I was quite the bitch at age 15, so I can't even imagine what my reaction was, but I'm sure it was awful.
Happy early birthday, my dear friend! You are such a genuinely lovely person and I hope that your day will be as special as you are <3

Great wishlist. I think I agree with most of those :)

Have you seen my July necklace giveaway? It's a super cool necklace also worn by jessie j.

PS. thanks for my blog comment, the briefcase was from a charity shop. I must admit I'm finding it hard to take out as a purse but I'm determined! xx said...

Oh my goodness I LOVE this!!! LOVED LOVED THIS POST! lol

I would totally buy you everything. hehe The best gift I was given was my Ipod. :) The worst? Well, you know when little kids wrap up old toys of theirs...its hard cuz you can't say no thank you! hehe
