Birthday Wish List: Gift Ideas for the Lady in your Life

My birthday is only a little over a month away and I am super excited. Around this time every year, all of my beautiful friends and family start asking me what gift I want for my special day. Like most ladies out there I have a long list of must-haves, so here it is in all of its glory (my faves are highlighted in pink)

Feel free to buy me anything from this list, oh and while you're there; get yourself a little something too (just click on an item in the box directly below to shop).

Here is a run-down of the list above from left to right;

1. Naven cut-out print dress : This dress is such a show stopper. Even with the cut-out's and the figure hugging it still manages to look classy. Plus, the colour way is a grown up take on tie-dye which I love.

2. YSL Arty ring in all gold: This ring is the flyest. I absolutely loooove it in the all gold tone. So va-va voom.

3. Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) pure lip gloss: This lip gloss is top shelf. Goes on like a dream and wears beautifully.

4. Falling Whistles in gold tone: Falling Whistles are not only a fly accessory but it is a "campaign for peace in the Congo" 

It is a campaign to protect the youngest boys who are abducted from their homes and forced to fight in a war that they know nothing about. The youngest of the boys are too small to carry the guns, instead they are armed with simply a whistle (as represented by the falling whistle chains). They are given the duty of blowing the whistle upon sight of the enemy and using their tiny emaciated bodies to take the first round of bullets. Check out to learn more about this cause and more importantly to give all you can.

5. J Brand purple jeans: J Brand jeans have the most amazing cut and fit, especially if you are a curvy girl with hips and a bodonka donk donk. I really want these in purple because it is my fave colour along with blue. I like purple because it is the highest of the Chakra colours; it symbolises wisdom, peace and being the most highly evolved. To top it all off purple is just so damn pretty.

6. Proenza zebra knit: I saw Nicole Richie wearing this and fell in love with it.

7. Witchery white shirt for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) : The crisp white shirt is a wardrobe must have. 100% of all the gross proceeds from this gorgeous little number by Witchery goes directly to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. I love this because not only will it make you look good, it will also make you feel great.

8. Tory Burch yellow satchel bag: This is a perfect everyday bag.

9. Regatta throw pillow: This little pillow reminds me of the amazing weekends I spent in the Hampton's.

10. Tufted blue armchair: I really need one of these to go with my mirrored vanity at home. It will look so regal like.

11. Lavender Picolino BBQ: This is just the cutest little portable BBQ. You never know when the opportunity for a good cook-out will present itself. With this little baby, I will always be prepared.

12. Le Creuset cooking set: I love French food more than any other food in the world. It looks wonderful, tastes wonderful and just makes you feel amazing. Nothing tastes better than French food cooked in a Le Creuset pan. It's really quite an experience.

13. Vera Wang Preppy Princess: A fragrance that will make me feel like a princess? I'll take two please.

14. Benefit sugar bomb blush: Anything by Benefit is a make-up staple. The sugar bomb blush is no exception. I am almost out of mine and I need a re-up asap.

15. Giuseppe Zanotti purple patent pumps: Because every girl needs some purple and patent in their lives.

16. Bamboo hoop earrings in 14k Gold: I have never met a bamboo hoop earring that I didn't love. They just scream hip hop to me and I have so many pairs of them that I feel like it's worth investing in a real gold pair that I can keep for life. I'll be that 70 year old Nana rocking the bamboo hoops.

17. Diane Von Furstenburg (DVF) black leather boots: Every, I repeat every lady needs a good pair of black leather boots. These luxe leather boots by DVF are timeless.

18. DKNY leather jacket : I got my first leather jacket aka bad boy at age 11. Ever since then a leather jacket has been a staple of my winter wardrobe. Over the years I have come to realise that investing in a quality leather jacket is well worth it.

For the tech geek in me and every lady...

Knuckle duster iphone case. 

I saw Rihanna rocking this and I've got to have it.

The Sony P tablet. 

Reminds me of the Sony PSP I used to have, only better.

Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet

I am a voracious reader so I'm always on the look out for a good E-Reader that doubles as a portable browsing device. The Apple Ipad and Amazon Kindle are awesome devices, but there is definitely room in my collection for this little beauty.

Panasonic Lumix

Iphone pictures are one thing, but I like to have a real camera on hand. This little beauty has 14.1 mega pixels, touch screen, 20 x zoom lens, GPS and is chock full of features. It's a great point and shoot camera.

I can't wait until my birthday.
