2012 Birthday Wishlist

by Jamie Sanford on December 2, 2012

My birthday is coming up soon (December 7th), so here is my fantasy wishlist. My real Amazon wishlist is much more accessible. This one will be about expensive things that I don’t expect anyone to buy me!

I tend to not buy expensive sunglasses, but these are so gorgeous. They are also $290, from Nordstrom.

…except that I just found these for $10.99. Retro City Sunglasses ftw!

Miu Miu Runway Shiny Leather Buckle and Fringe Oxfords – these are on sale for $525 at Saks.

Love the blue and I want to touch the leather. Balenciaga Arena Giant 12 Rose Gold Velo in Bleut, $1,895 at Barney’s.

SO COOL. iPhone speaker doc that uses a vintage gramophone. $422 from ReAcoustic on Etsy.

I have wanted this for years. A pop girl piece by Hulbert Waldroup. A commissioned one would be even better.

Something else I have lusted after for a while. The Lancaster Leather Sofa from Restoration Hardware – the super deep Luxe edition. A mere $4,175.

I love Konstantino jewelry, and definitely would love this London Blue Topaz Crown Ring for $850. Neiman Marcus has a great selection of Konstantino jewelry.

The last item are these Miu Miu jeweled suede platform sandals. Also from Neiman Marcus, for $2100. These are a bit much but they remind me so much of a pair of YSL shoes that I was obsessed with years ago, so I want them.

That’s all – I will be spending a lot less money for my birthday but I intend on having fun which is priceless! Have a good week everyone.

Konstantino Jewelry for My Birthday

by Jamie Sanford on December 7, 2010

It’s my birthday!

I will keep it short and sweet today – another guest post is coming your way tomorrow.

I would pretty much like anything from the Konstantino Color Collection available from Neiman Marcus.


Large range of prices, no range in fabulousness.

Have a lovely day everyone!

Sunday Link Party!

by Jamie Sanford on July 19, 2010

This is the 10th link party. I’m excited for having stuck to it.

Photo of the week – me and my mom at her birthday party in April – only uploaded this week.

Mom and me.

You can tell that I'm her kid, at least a little bit.

From Apartment Therapy: Beautiful chandeliers inspired by nature.

From The Kitchn: What Makes You Crave a Dish?

Joy the Baker made cupcakes with peanut butter that look amazing. In my mind I would love to bake more often, but having the oven on in the summer is just ridiculous.  I’ll stockpile recipes for the fall.

Fashionista has a slideshow of things you can buy that will benefit the oil spill cleanup efforts.

My friend Christina and I have a friendship that owes itself to a shared love of Wayne’s World, as we spent many a long bus ride to school in 7th grade quoting the movie. This is a favorite.

Curious Tuesday 007.

by Jamie Sanford on June 27, 2010

I am participating in Gala Darling’s Curious Tuesday project.

Curious Tuesday 007

1. If it was your birthday tomorrow, what would be on your wishlist?

Custom blog designs, a fabulous trip to Las Vegas with lots of entertainment and spa treatments, and a new camera.

Self-portrait #1062.

This is my current camera - I would like another Sony, but an updated version.

2. Do you look after your nails? Do you paint them? If so, do you have a colour that you keep returning to again & again?

I stopped biting my nails a few months ago after getting a manicure for a job interview, and I’ve been keeping up with them since then! I paint them all the time, in between getting professional manicures. I’m really enjoying Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polish for a quick job. I have an array of colors though.

3. What star sign are you, & do you think it is accurate?

I’m a Sagittarius, and I do think that there’s something to it. My favorite horoscope experience was reading a Cosmo Love Guide in 2001 and having it tell me that my husband and I (both Sagittarians) have a “10” on the “together forever potential” scale.

4. What is something you have recently learned to appreciate?

Noise. It seems odd but my new office is very quiet.  I was at my last job for 8 years and there was always a lot of discussion and activity, and now it’s mostly silent. I put on a single earbud and put podcasts on to have something happening in the background.

5. What is your favourite city in the world, & why?

As much as I have loved visits to many cities, New York is probably my favorite, because it’s a classic.  (Others I love – Seattle, San Francisco, Portland.)
