Go Shorty…It’s Your Birthday…

A Little Glitter Birthday Wishlist

This time of year can be very difficult for my poor husband.  Between Christmas, Valentine’s Day, my birthday and our anniversary he has to think of a lot of gifts for me.  Since I am such a kind and charitable wife I have compiled a list of ideas to help him out.  We are about a month out from my b-day (which is St. Paddy’s Day).  Obviously, I am not expecting all these things (although that would certainly be nice).  These are just items that I have come across lately that I love but would not buy for myself.  I think that description makes for the perfect present.

  • SamandKateDesign Tulle and Sequin Camera Strap.  These straps come in so many gorgeous colors that I had a hard time picking my fave.
  • Gucci Soho Leather Chain Shoulder Bag.  I love this bag so much.  It is the perfect size and I am digging the chain strap.
  • Tripod and DSLR Camera Remote.  I have been playing with the idea of getting a tripod and remote for my DSLR camera so that I can start taking my own fashion photos for the blog.  These are pretty inexpensive and they get great reviews.
  • Coordinates Collection Bracelet.  I came across this Company on Instagram and fell in love with the Legend Bracelet.  They are so meaningful and stylish.  I would die for one with the coordinates of the location where my daughter was born.  
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Sorbet.  I have been wearing Marc Jacobs’ fragrances since his first scent was released in 2001.  I am almost done with my bottle of Daisy and a new one would make a fantastic birthday present.
  • Pink Schwinn Bike.  This one has been on my list forever.  How cute would this be with a wicker basket on front?  

What’s In Your Purse?

What's In My Purse alittleglitter.comI don’t know about you guys but I am obsessed with purses.  They are my favorite.  I could care less about shoes but I feel a need to hoard bags.  I am totally unapologetic about it as well.  I have seen a bunch of “What’s In My Purse” posts lately so I decided to jump on board.

Inside this beautiful Chanel is:

– My Debit Card (I rarely carry cash.  I hate it.  I think it’s dumb to have to stop at an ATM all the time when I can just use my card.  Also, I think having paper money is just wrong.  It is so delicate and easily ruined.  I don’t want my dollars flying away in a gust of wind.  Pass.)

– My Driver’s License, Car Key and Metrocard.   Not all that interesting but necessary. 

– My iPhone and the beautiful new case I just got at Five Below.  This case was part of a two pack and it was only FIVE DOLLARS!  The other case in the pack was this lovely purple color.  I felt like I won the lottery when I spotted this set.

– Trident Tropical Twist Gum.  This is my jam.  I had Invisalign on my teeth for the past year or so and I was unable to chew gum.  Now I do it all the time.  It keeps me from snacking on junk and my breath stays fresh.  Love.

My May Book.  I am totally obsessed with this planner lately.  Now that I can see all my potential blog posts laid out it makes planning for the week ahead so much easier.  (Plus, I think the pattern/monogram are so pretty!)

– Benetint.  I have mentioned in the past that my lips have a naturally blue, corpse-like undertone.  It is not a good look.  I use Benetint every morning and reapply once in the afternoon.  This is a lip stain and it dries quickly.  It is extremely buildable and it gives your lips a flat, light red tint.  I put gloss over it.  As the gloss wears off throughout the day, the Benetint is still there and keeps my pout looking non-zombie.

Nars Lipgloss in Risky Business.  This is my go-to lipgloss.  I have probably used 30 or more tubes of this stuff.  It is the best color ever.  If you are looking for something new, I suggest this one.  It is natural-looking and universally flattering.

MAC Blot Powder Compact.  In the Summer I can get a bit shiny.  This clears me right up.

Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Concealer.  I carry this just in case I take a peek in the mirror and notice any redness.  It is not the best concealer I have ever used though.  When it is done I am going to move onto the Hourglass one that I just bought.

Bliss Lemon Body Butter.  Even though it is Summer, no one told my elbows or hands apparently.  They get super dry and I need to moisturize them periodically.  I love the scent of this lotion.  

That’s what is currently in my bag.  What’s in yours?  I would love to see!
