Wishful Monday

I've been thinking about starting a weekly routine for a while now, something similar to what Emily Schuman does on Cupcakes & Cashmere if you've ever seen her 'Five Things' blog posts.  I like the idea of something like that as well but I figured that I should do something on Mondays, something to make me happy at the start of the week.  Mondays are always such a drag I figured sharing something like my current wishlist would make it fun! 

How do I not have one of these bags yet?  I first saw these when my friend had come home from college about 4 or 5 years ago.   I remember she had a red one and I didn't really think that they were that cute although very functional and practical.  Last year while at school I told myself that I would buy it if I got good grades after first semester.  (Obviously that didn't happen...1st year away from home, living in the city, new friends...what's a girl supposed to do, study? )  Anyway I just keep putting it off because I can't quite justify the $150 price tag for a nylon tote.  I'm sure I'll get it sometime soon, I can already see how useful it would be, I just need to set a goal to reach first.

These bubble necklaces by J.Crew have been on practically every single blog out there.  I've recently taken a liking to statement necklaces and this one just seems to be calling my name.  But man, that price tag hurts just to look at.  Especially considering how often I would wear a necklace like this I just can't do it.  I've been putting it off and thinking that I'll save up the money while I look at the J.Crew website daily, but we all know I'll eventually buy the knockoff on Ebay from China.  Come on, $15 compared to $150, tell me you wouldn't do the same thing.  

I'm a big fan of plain stud earrings, be it pearls, diamonds, or just plain metal balls.  Personally I have a rounder face so dangly earrings aren't the most complimentary for my face shape.  I like to stick with studs and I've been on the hunt for a new pair.  Colorful little numbers like this just seem so fun!  

After all the hype I finally bought a Nars 'Orgasm' blush about two years ago.  During my freshman year of college it was definitely my most loved blush.  I was a bit apprehensive about dropping the cash on a blush but let me tell you it was so well worth it.  Surprisingly it ended up lasting quite a long time too, I still have it and you can see about 50% of the pan.  Since it's summer I've been relying on my trusty 'Benetint' from Benefit, but I definitely see myself purchasing another one of these babies in the future.
