“Turning thirty – The best thing that ever happened to me.” – Bonnidette Lantz
This year, I’ve been on this anti-gift crusade, but I know for birthdays that is just unacceptable. I give people gifts for their birthdays all the time (still have 3 that I need to ship for May and June birthdays….I hate going to the post office…sitting at my house right now). I can’t really expect people to oblige to my wishes of not getting me a gift for my own birthday. So to make things easier, I’m opted to wait until 5 days out from my birthday and curate the easiest birthday gift list ever with my favorite place to shop ever…..AMAZON.
I’ve constantly been saving items that I eventually just plan on buying for myself, but figured I could turn it into a nice little compilation of items that my friends could gift me (except for the Tribeca Arm Chair – that’s ridiculously expensive). All of these items are a healthy balance of how I’m embarking on 30, with an open mind and heart to tap into my most creative side. Of course it includes a little of everything that I really focus on the blog! If you’re my friend and adamant about buying me a present and can’t make it the The Vintage House, I got you. Here are a few of my favorite things to celebrate my 30 is nice birthday!
Hand Lettering 101: An Introduction to the Art of Creative Lettering
Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens
I’m starting a bullet journal for my 30th birthday, which we’ll learn more about later this week. I made sure to include items that would go with this new journey.
Bae Short Sleeve Crop Top
Round Neck Tunic Raglan Top Amelia Ivory/Black XL
Fashion may not be my main focus anymore, but I still love to dress up and be pretty. These two tops have been sitting in my style wish list for ages!
I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual
Love Warrior (Oprah’s Book Club): A Memoir
We’ve already discussed how when I’m offline, I love to read. These two books are on my must read next list of self-improvement/personal development. If you’re interested in either book, let me know and maybe I’ll put together a small reading group for discussions.
Tribeca Organic Arm Chair
Kate Aspen “Modern Garden” Geometric Planter, White, Set of 4
Honestly, I just like new things in my house. The arm chair would look fabulous in my eclectic living room and the planters would look amazing with a few baby succulents! Indulge me here!
All-New Echo Dot (2nd Generation) – White
Fujifilm Instax Groovy Camera Case – Black
My Fujifilm Instax has basically become an extension of me, I’ve carried on trips, to parties, and even work! It’s white and tends to get scoffed, so I need a cute case to capture even more memories for my bullet journal. As for the Echo Dot, I mean its everything you want in a techy do it all gadget!
