2016 Birthday Wishlist

by Jamie Sanford on December 2, 2016

Hello to my fellow December babies! My greatest wish is that your birthday isn’t overshadowed by other important dates in December.

I am lucky enough to have my birthday fall into the first week of the month, so I’ve never really had this issue. In addition, the general sense of not caring about birthdays hasn’t really been an issue for me, since my husband Will’s birthday is 2 days before mine. It’s a lot of fun when you get to celebrate with someone else every year.

Here’s my 2016 birthday wishlist!

This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small commission if you make a purchase using these links.

This Erin Condren planner is really popular with some content creators that I follow, and my current planner isn’t really working for me, so I’m excited to try this one instead. $55 at Amazon.

While I love my Sony NEX-6, and the images it creates, it isn’t the best for selfie videos because it lacks a pop-up screen. This might seem silly, but this is a wishlist, so I would like this Sony Alpha a5100 to replace it. $548 at Amazon.

How can I resist a Stevie Nicks enamel pin? This is available for $10 from BlackDressWildHeart on Etsy.

Almost every one of my wishlists features a David Yurman topaz ring, because they are gorgeous. This one has diamonds as well, and is available for $1,750 at Neiman Marcus.

Still lusting after many of the Tom Ford lipsticks, but the Tom Ford Lips & Boys Color Cream in Cary will have to do. Available for $36 at Neiman Marcus.

This last one is no biggie, just a few days at Giraffe Manor in Kenya. I cannot think of anywhere that I wish to travel to more than Giraffe Manor. I fed a giraffe one time and it was one of the most magical things I have ever experienced, and they just hang out at Giraffe Manor! While I’m there, we can take a side trip to Mahali Mzuri for a fuller safari experience.

That’s all for now – if I’m feeling extra wishy, a holiday wishlist might be soon to follow.

2013 Holiday Wishlist

by Jamie Sanford on December 9, 2013

Holiday wishlist time! I update my Amazon Wishlist all year long, I think myself very useful for giving everyone at least 50 ideas of things I would like to receive. I am perfectly aware that not everyone wants to buy me a $2000 lens, but that’s why it is a wishlist.

Let’s get going on my 2013 list.

I think there’s always a Konstantino piece on everyone one of my wishlists. I love almost all of the pieces! The styling is just totally for me. This Pave London Blue Topaz ring is available from Neiman Marcus for $850.

BEAST camera. I just bought Will the Sony a77, but of course, my jealousy at his new shiny toy makes me want one too. This the biggest and baddest camera you can get from Sony right now, so I’m putting the a99 on my wishlist. Available from Amazon for $2,798.

The Bambi hat by Celapiu on Etsy. So cute for $45.

Another day, another deer for my home. This silver deer head wall sculpture is on sale for $66.

Black Christmas Tree! I have been mourning the fact that we will not have a tree again this year because we will be traveling, and I’m dreaming ahead to a time when I have a home with more than 1 tree in it. We have a normal tree now, but I have way too many things to fit on the current tree. Maybe I could go black and gold, since I have a LOT of gold stuff for the tree. This particular model is available for $174.95 from Amazon.

These are gorgeous, and Dr Martens! This is Arabella by Dr Martens, available for $407.48 on Amazon.

These are reminiscent of some Prada loafers I’ve wanted in the past. Buckled In by Irregular Choice, $169.95 via Solestruck.

That’s all for now. I could go nuts with adding lots more stuff, but this will do. I reserve the right for a part 2!

Let me know what is in your wishlist in the comments!

Instagram Roundup #32

by Jamie Sanford on March 20, 2013

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Been browsing books about design and such while waiting at the printer at the office. Naturally I photographed the J.

I received this ring from my Nana at Christmastime. It came from a friend of hers’ mother, and she knew it was right up my alley. I haven’t figured out what the stone is yet.

Coming soon to the blog will be a giant image of all of my walk-by Flatiron Building photos. I must have at least 25? This is from last week.

I hadn’t been to an estate sale in YEARS (at least 10) before last week. Naturally I took sneaky photos, and here is one of them.

60s kitchen decor.

I photographed lots of old packaging with my phone.

Went to St. Patrick’s Day Thanksgiving on Saturday night. Lots of drinking, eating, and merriment.

I am really looking forward to the How To Destroy Angels show next month.

Fortune, as always.

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.
