Hey Boo’s & Babes.
My birthday is around the corner and just like I have done for the past few years, I have once again compiled my Birthday Wish List! Consumerism at its best! Okay, here goes and in no order of importance…
(I just realized that some of the same things that are on this list were on previous lists, so pardon the repeats).
1. VINTAGE GOLD MEN’S ROLEX (CHAMPAGNE FACE): $11,000 – 17,000
My ladyboy style has evolved here and there into grown man steez. I drink whiskey neat from time to time and now I want a Vintage Gold Men’s Rolex. The chances that I might ever buy myself an expensive timepiece is slim to none, but hey – a tomboy can dream, can’t she?
2. GHOST CHAIR BY STARCK: $410.00
Oh, the woes of being an adult and taking your home’s landscape seriously! I believe in buying affordable items (lord knows I own enough Ikea), but here and there adding in some fancy pieces. Enter, Starck’s Ghost Chairs. Sure, it’s just clear acrylic in the form of a simple chair – but I just love the way they look!
3. Black + Blum’s Thermo Pot: $42.00
I’m all about containers for food and beverages that are finely designed and healthy (BPA Free, etc). This little thermos is excellently put together and sleek, making bringing your lunch a fashion forward move!
4. OPENING CEREMONY COSMETIC BAG: $75
Opening Ceremony can do no wrong. Everything they make is amazing and this little makeup bag is the perfect addition to my life.
5. MASSAGE AT GREAT JONES SPA: $140
This little gem has made my list every year. Great Jones is an exceptional spa for a local New York City breather. They have a water lounge that you can hang in with a sauna, hot tub, cold pool and steam room. From the moment I walk in, I forget that I am in the city and my stress melts away.
6. KLEAN KANTEEN WATER BOTTLE (27 OZ.): $19.95
Hydration is super important, but it’s even more important not to drink from plastic water bottles…especially the ones we all mostly drink out of that has dangerous chemicals in them, just seeping out into our water. Klean Kanteen offers cute bottles made from BPA free stainless steel.
7. VITAMIX BLENDERÂ - 5200 SUPER HEALTHY LIFESTYLE: $549.00
I’ve always wanted one of these bad boys, they are the best in the business. A good blender is crucial for a healthy lifestyle and the more I delve into vegan recipes, raw recipes and smoothies…I find that I definitely could use a Vitamix!
8.Â FUJI INSTAX CAMERA: $95.00
I can’t believe I still haven’t gotten this bad boy, especially being someone obsessed with cameras and Polaroids. I need to get it together!
9. DSPTCH CAMERA SLING STRAP: $44.00
And for the many cameras I own, having a good strap is necessary once you realize the stock ones that come with most cameras these days are dreadful.
10. GIFTCARD TO THE CONTAINER STORE: $$$
Let’s face it people, it’s hard to stay organized with life throwing fast ones at you left and right. Between work and home, I need a good organizational system and Container Store has some really good products.
You could get me ANYTHING from this place and I would love you forever. One Lucky Duck has all the most delicious food, juices and treats that are RAW! All of my teeth are sweet teeth and eating raw desserts makes me feel less guilty about my inner fat kid.
12. DIPTYQUE CANDLE – VIOLETTE or FIGUIER: $60.00
Candles are just the bomb. They are the perfect gift and can please almost anyone. Diptyqe has long been creating classic candles that spruce up any space with a chic feel.
13. SOMETHING INSPIRATIONAL:
A good mix CD of music I don’t know, an inspiring second-hand book, a record with a nice design…something…anything fun and inspiring.
14. KING KRULE MERCH T-SHIRT: Â£14
My longtime readers know my love for King Krule and his music. Formerly known as Zoo Kid, this young ginger boy stole my heart and then crushed it with his somber music – oh, how I love misery! Anyways, his site finally has fully replenished stock and I need some tees.
15. HANDMADE CARD: Free
I told my readers a while back that I loved handmade cards and on my birthday found an inbox full of the sweetest notes I could ever have asked for…seriously! You can check out all of themÂ HERE. Since we were just on the topic of King Krule, peep one of my favorite cards made byÂ B. Denise.
If you feel like sending me some birthday love, email it to INFO@VASHTIE.COM!
Oh and I have to mention that I share a birthday with William Shakespeare, Shirley Temple, Michael Moore, Taio, Roy Orbinson, Dev Patel, Kal Penn, Jessica Stam, Jaime King! Yay for bull-headed Tauruses!
