My Birthday Wishlist!

My Birthday Wishlist!

So as my birthday is fast approaching I thought it would be a fine idea to create a birthday wishlist! Not only do you get to delve into my heart’s desires but you also get to grab a few gift ideas if there is a special lady you want to spoil *hint-hint* I’m a special lady, *hint-hint* Mother’s Day is coming up! 🙂

Over the last few months I’ve been eying out some of these items (some that I’m still saving up for) and I just wanted to share with you what I’ve got my eye on and why they make the most perfect gift ideas!

1.Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Polaroid Camera

Why I love it: For the avid photographer! It was love at first sight. It takes the cutest polaroid photo’s (about the size of a bank card). The refillable polaroid’s are also easy to source from stores that sell camera equipment.

Where can you get it:

How much does it cost: R899

2. 27Pinkx Makeup Brushes

Why I love it: I’ve heard so many amazing things about the 27Pinkx brushes and read so many great reviews on it – I definitely think its great value for money.

Where can you get it: 27Pinkx

How much does it cost: R440

3. EOS Lip Balms

Why I love it: An international trend that has hit the shores of South Africa. These are the cutest lip balms around and whenever a retailer gets stock of them, they tend to fly like hotcakes! It can only mean that they are amazing!

Where can you get it: Hashtagawesome

How much does it cost: R119

4. Powerstick+

Why I love it: I first got to use one of these at an outdoor festival, obviously my phone’s battery died and a friend offered their Powerstick. Life = saved! About the size of a white board marker, it fits easily into your back pocket or your handbag and really saves the day when you don’t have any access to a power unit – so you get to venture around whilst charging your devices.

Where can you get it: Powerstick

How much does it cost: Prices range on the amount of battery power you want, and they cost between R250 – R400

5. 27Pinks Luxury Organiser

Why I love it: 27Pinkx makes another appearance on my wishlist simply because they offer the most amazing beauty and makeup products. This organiser is perfect for storing your makeup yet it looks so elegant.

Where can you get it: 27Pinkx

How much does it cost: R1800

6. Nicki Minaj Onika Fragrance

Why I love it: Since I got the Nicki Minaj Minajesty and Pink Friday fragrances I instantly fell in love with the scents. It’s the type of perfume that people stop you to ask: “What is it that you’re wearing, it smells lovely?” And collections are all about collecting them ALL right?

Where can you get it: Clicks, Dischem

How much does it cost: R495 (50 ml)

7. LUSH Bath Bombs

Why I love it: I’m not exactly the bath salts and bubbles type of girl but when I first started using these 2 years ago I was hooked. They offer the most amazing bath goodies – from glitter bombs to relaxing bombs, even pink and purple bombs. I don’t know about you but to bath in purple water with glitter floating around makes me happy 🙂

Where can you get it: LUSH

How much does it cost: Prices are based on weight, but you can pick up a good bath bomb for around R30-R40

8. Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush

Why I love it: Again Hashtagawesome brings us another boss international brand. If you watch a lot of beauty related Youtube video’s you’d know how popular this brand is, and of course we all want to get in on that action.

Where can you get it: Hashtagawesome

How much does it cost: R650

9. MAC Lipsticks

Why I love it: What’s not to love about MAC lipsticks, nearly every lady has at least one in their makeup purse and you can never have too many. I’m slowly but surely building my army of MAC lipsticks 🙂

Where can you get it: MAC

How much does it cost: R195

10. A boyfriend. I didn’t add this one to the list but I’m secretly hoping somebody sends me Dave Franco wrapped up in a gift box… 🙂

    You can get the luxury organizers on ebay and amazon for a lot less then what they charge on 27pinkx. I bought one on amazon for $24 + shipping (depends on the quantity of your order) and a larger one on ebay for $64 (including shipping).

      Thank you for the heads up, I’m definitely going to check it out. However with the size and weight I’m thinking customs might just have a field day…
