Monthly Must Haves: Birthday Edition

Yaaay, this month it's my 22nd birthday and I'm really excited! My boyfriend already got my present and I can't wait to see what it is as he has a really good taste when it comes to presents. So as this is a special edition post I won't be talking about the newest products or temporary crushes but things I would be really happy to get as a present right now.

1 Apple Macbook Air
The laptop I'm currently using has some major problems, for example it only charges when it's turned off. So far I only had problems with all of my computers so I would love to try a Mac as most people claim they didn´t have problems with their mac at all. Also it's of course the blogger cliché par excellence to write your posts on that famous silver laptop.

2 The Body Shop holiday edition 2013
When I saw these limited edition Christmas products in a local Body Shop I fell in love immediately. The packaging is so cute and the smell is really spicy. Can I please have on of the gingerbread products?

3 Nikon Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G
I've always felt that my photographs look far more unprofessional than those of many other fashion bloggers and I think that a new lens would definitely help me improve the quality of my pics. I know that everybody swears by 50mm lenses for outfit pics but on WishWishWish I read that this 35mm lens is even better for outfit and product shoots and as her pics are truly amazing I'm definitely going to consider getting this lens.

4 Hamsa necklace
I love oriental inspired jewellery, especially evil eye and hamsa necklaces and bracelets. Lately I've seen a REALLY pretty hamsa necklace in a shop in Luxembourg but can't remember the brand. Maybe it was Swarovski or something similar. In fact I think it would make the perfect elegant statement necklace.

5 Valentino studded heels
I've told you that I like these before and even though they might already be out of trend I still love how elegant they look and how they can be combined with almost everything.

6 Lush Magic Wand
Since my last visit at the Lush store I'm totally into their products again. I chose this Magic Wand to put on my wish list as it would be the perfect item to take a bubble bath on my birthday and feel like a princess.

7 Marc by Marc Jacobs studded mouse flats
That I love Marc Jacobs should be clear by now and these flats have already been on my wish list last year. I love them since I saw the first pair about 2 years ago. One day I will buy a pair for myself, be it with my first earnings.

8 Gabs knit print bag
I got to know the brand Gabs when I got a collaboration offer from an Italian brands retailer a few months ago and I fell in love with this very bag. I love that it looks like the Longchamp pliage but has a way more creative print. However I'm still waiting for this cooperation to take place as I simply didn't get an answer from the retailer after a few e-mails. That makes me quite sad but I will keep the bag in mind nevertheless and maybe get it on my own (right from the shop and not from the retailer!).

What do you guys think about my birthday wish list? Realistic or not? In fact all I wish for this year is to spend some time with my friends as I don't see them that often at the moment with all of us studying different things and partly even in different countries.


  1. Oh, we share the bday in the same month and we are both scorpio!:) But I'm much older!:) Love your wishlist Carmen, I think it is pretty realistic, or at least dreaming is always free:) Have a good evening, kisses! xo

  11. Macbooks sind jetzt auch nicht soo dolle, man bezahlt halt relativ Geld nur schon wegen der Marke. Aber das Design ist toll und wirkliche Probleme hat man auch nicht damit (Akkulaufzeit geht schnell runter). Die Valentino Schuhe hätte ich auch SO gerne!

  24. Thanks for sharing this post! That was really interesting reading about the 35mm lens on Carrie's blog. What camera body do you use now? I still ended up buying the 50mm lens in hopes that I would get a full frame DSLR one day and the 50mm would be like a 35mm in that situation. There's just so much to know and learn about photography!!

    I hope you get everything on your birthday wishlist!! :)



  25. Love all the things u want!!! Really hope u get everything ^^



  26. Haha that's quite a wish list,
    I definitely would recommend the Apple indeed!
