Birthday Wishlist

My birthday is this month, in a few days actually. It's not a big deal, I feel like after 30 what's the point of keeping track of age. I am so grateful for life in general that I feel every day of life should be celebrated and acknowledged as a blessing. But family and friends make birthdays a big whoop for me and for that I am also grateful.  They are truly all I need and the true gifts of everyday life. Still, they always seem to ask what I want for my birthday. So, today I thought I would give you a bit of a simple birthday gift guide for the woman, mom, friend, sister in your life.

1. Makeup
Currently makeup is in high demand. Honestly I have been a huge makeup fan since I was about 18. It's not that makeup makes me feel pretty, I feel like it makes me look and feel more put together. I'm a mom of 3 boys, but I still make an effort to make sure I don't look like I rolled out of bed. I think most women like to get a bit dolled up so makeup is always a nice gift to receive. I've been crushing on the  Androgyny Palette the colors are so fun, yet you can totally achieve a neutral look with this palette.

2. Skin Care
Skin care is a bit tricky because you can't just go to the store and buy some Aveeno and think "ah this will work." I suggest doing a bit of homework. Maybe ask her what skin care products she uses in passing or look through her vanity. You can never go wrong with buying back ups of her favorite skin care products. I know I would love that because skin care is essential and pricey. My current faves are all the  Mad Hippie  products. I have yet to find a dud.

3. Jewelry
If the lady in your life wears jewelry that's always a great option. A watch, some earrings, a ring, or my favorite a  Personalized Necklace. I think something personalized is so special to receive. It makes me feel like you put thought into that gift. If she is a momma maybe add her kids names that is such a heartwarming gift I think any momma would love to receive.

4. Sneakers
Okay I used to be a working lady. I wore heels all day everyday, but at some point in my life I loved slipping into some nice and comfy sneakers. Even my sister who practically lives in heels wears sneakers on her days off. Trust me, you can't go wrong with some classic sneakers like these  Adidas. Timeless and comfy. Plus I am pretty sure these can be worn with anything! Love them. Just make sure to find out her size.

5. Graphic Tees
Okay call me crazy, but I don't think I have ever met anyone who did not like a graphic tee. I mean a graphic tee could even be worn as a pajama! This is something else you can find a customization for. I personally love being a boymom so if your special lady is anything like me she may like this  Boymom Tee. Or look around for something that suits her. Etsy will literally have thousands to choose from!

6. Beverage holder
Worst case scenario you get her something for her favorite beverage. I personally collect mugs and am a BIG coffee drinker, so if I get a Coffee Mug I am a happy camper. If your special lady doesn't drink coffee than maybe get her a tea mug or a tumbler to carry water on the go, a wine glass maybe. Hey, all I know is that we all drink something and need something to drink it in!😁 So this is not a #fail.
