2015 Wishlist

I don't know how many "wishlist" type posts I've done over the years.  I've probably done a lot because there's always something newer and prettier that I just HAVE to have.  Anyway.

So you know how you want something sooooo bad but then you have some doubts about it (too expensive, might not work, you just don't need it at the moment) so you never end up getting it, or you get something similar but you don't get the same satisfaction out of it?  Kinda like when you're craving some juicy smoked beef brisket but they're out of brisket so you get the smoked pork shoulder instead because they say it's kind of the same and then you try it and it's so NOT the same so you end up not even eating it because you're too disappointed and irritated because you wasted your time and your money on something that didn't satisfy you at all.  Know what I mean?  Good.  (I'm looking at you Asu Smokehouse...)

This year will be different.  At the beginning of the year, I put together a list of 12 things that I've been wanting for several years now, but just didn't want to dish out the money for it because I thought I could find something similar and cheaper and get the same quality as the real thing.  Obviously, that has yet to happen so I've decided that this year I will treat myself to the things on my list and stop wasting time and money on dupes that never satisfy me.


Some of the things on my wishlist are pretty damn expensive and some of the things are really not so it kind of balances out.  Or so I'd like to think.  Okay, so MOST of the things are pretty expensive - which is why I haven't caved in and gotten them yet.  Obvs.

I think the list is pretty self-explanatory so I won't bore you with a breakdown of why I want each item.  I'll save that for the wishlist update posts that I'll write each time I'm able to cross something off my list.  And because I've got such an expensive list, you can bet your ass that I will look for the best deals I can before committing to the purchase (if you know of any deals, please let me know!!).  I will also be trying harder at saving, budgeting and shopping SMART instead of splurging and buying something on impulse just because it looks cute.  Unless it's something that I need, of course.  Keyword is need, not want.

And if you've been following me on Instagram, you probably already know that I've already crossed one thing off my wishlist:

Thanks to Joey allowing me to pick out my own belated Christmas gift, I was able to score those bad boys for quite a deal.  Retailed at about $122 on Nastygal, I got them for only $90 (+ $5 shipping) via Poshmark.  100% authentic, in PERFECT almost brand-new condition.  I was so thrilled when I finally got them that I wore them around the house that night!

Joey:  Are those the shoes I got you?
Me:  YES!  Aren't they awesome!?
Joey:  So, I bought you Cinderella shoes?
Me:  What?
Joey:  (shrugs) I guess...

He doesn't get it.  Obvs.

  1. I love your wishlist. I have a ton of things I want to get also but I can't bring myself to spend the money. Stupid student loans keeping me on lockdown.

  2. Yay on getting the shoes you wanted (and other things, by the look of your wishlist on polyvore). I didn't even notice the camera the first time I looked at the list, LOL! You think that'd be my first observation. I think it's great to plan and save and shop around for the things you want and hopefully they satisfy you. As for the camera, T5i, good choice! One I'd like to have :). Zullily was just running a "sale" on them.

  6. I love this!!! Sometimes you just have to have the real deal and a few investment pieces can be way more fun than a bunch of almosts! I love that you walked around in your shoes, I would totally do that too!
