birthday treats


I was spoiled rotten with birthday cash this year. Some may think that sounds impersonal but, I love and appreciate it so much. Money is always tight and having spending cash means I can browse my ever growing wish list of lovely things and actually make a purchase! So what did I treat myself to this year?


This handmade hemp purse / clutch / wallet from Ickady Bag. I haven't bought a new bag in so long, I have been rotating the ones in my closet for awhile and now that my kids are no longer babies I wanted something small and I am in need of a new wallet so, this purse / clutch / wallet sounded perfect! It was shipped today and I can't wait until it arrives.


This bamboo/organic cotton shirt with a lotus flower that has been created and hand silk-screened by The Lotus Root. A bamboo shirt has been on my wish list for some time. They are super soft and are supposed help with sweat which is something I have a teensy problem with.This shirt arrived this week and I LOVE it.


Luscious Boca Red No Miss Non Toxic Nail Polish. This is my first time buying non toxic polish, it went on smoothly and looks great. It took longer to dry then traditional nail polish but, not much. Totally worth it!

Lastly, I bought a new address book, a weight loss/food journal and The Yoga Deck with a Barnes and Noble gift card. My address book is in desperate need of an update, I really need to keep myself in check with the journal and I am hoping The Yoga Deck makes it easier for me keep up my yoga practice at home.

I am so grateful for all the birthday wishes I received this year. I am feeling extra special and oh so happy! Thank you!!!

isn't that the best! I don't get to shop for myself that often so, I had a great time.

Oh I love cash too!!! It is funny though when I get cash I can't seem to find anything I like. What's with that??? Hmmmm.
Also I wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I so appreciate it!

haha, yes Heather once I have the money in hand I have a hard time pulling the trigger to buy too. But amazon and etsy wish lists have made that "problem" a little easier. :)
