As my birthday approaches, the urge to “treat” myself grows stronger. I some how have convinced myself that I deserve to splurge and pamper myself; I guess because seeing 25 is a blessing (not everyone does). My heart is filled with so much joy and I am so thankful for all I have. For me, a lot of times, celebrating equates to retail therapy. Here are a few items I have had my eye on and have requested as gifts. . .

After completing my final “small chop” and having officially fully joined #teamnatural, I have begun experimenting with wash and go’s. I currently have a collapsible rubber diffuser that is perfect for traveling but I really would like something a little more sturdy as it can collapse while in use. I have been wanting this for sometime now and feel as though this would be a great and practical gift that I would put to use immediately!
2. iHome Mirror + Speaker + USB Charging Station
When attempting to do make up without 2 free hands and the proper lighting, it can be very difficult achieve a smooth, flawless, and evenly blended look. Good music is also a must in my beauty routine. It gets my mind right and sets the tone for my day/evening. When I tell you my heart skipped a beat the first time I saw one of these at a client’s house. I knew I had to have one. This is number one on my must have list. I really hope I get one of these. It will be perfect for my vanity since there is not much light over in that area.
3. Gucci Flops
I have recently grown a love of furry slide on flip flops. I currently have 2 paid that I alternate between when I’m running errands or just very casual. Now I know these can seem cliche with the recent musical references but I would be lying if I denied that fact that these are super cute and I would rock these E V E R Y W H E R E. My family hates my furry slides but I am sure they will approve of these!
4. Tiffany’s Round Heart Charm Bracelet
Since I was in high school, I have had an obsession with Tiffany & Co. I remember my mom picking me up from 21st Century Leaders Camp and stopping by the Phipps Plaza and Lenox. My mom told me that I could pick out something for my 16th birthday! I couldn’t believe it. I headed right into the Tiffany’s store and got my first Tiffany’s necklace. Through out the years, I have kept the traditional live by requesting different items for special events and have built up my mini collection. This particular one just dropped last week and when I laid eyes on it …. again I knew I had to have it.
5. Audi Q3
One item on my 5 year plan that I created when I was 20 was to buy my first car. I was blessed to test drive an Audi Q3 starting July 3rd for a couple of days. Once I sat in the driver’s seat, I knew that the car would be mine. I love black cars – they are so sleek. I also wanted something luxurious with a lot of space for Franky to lay around in the back. Once I heard the Audi Concernt Music system I was sold – literally. 🙂
So far I have been 100% happy with my early birthday splurges and can’t wait to celebrate life with my family on my birthday.
