Well folks, the time has come. I have about two and a half weeks left of being a teenager. I know, I know, if I hadn’t put my age in my bio (over there——> ) you probably would have thought I’m 17,, or 12 and a half. Alas, that’s not so true now is it. This coming groundhogs day at 10:17 PM, I will officially be 20… and honestly, I’m excited. Being a teenager was a great excuse for making some dumb mistakes and having fun, and I’ve definitely found myself in the past few years, but that’s exactly it. I’ve already done that sort of soul searching that a lot of teenagers haven’t done; I know what I want to do as a career, I have my friends, I have my religious and spiritual views and beliefs. I started getting into the metaphysical and occult around 12; I spent my days after middle school reading up on faeries and Wicca, Paganism and tarot. These passions have carried over and helped to shape me into who I am today, and these settled beliefs and convictions have always made me feel a bit older than my age. At (almost) 20, I finally feel like I feel my age, although I may not look it. So, as celebration of 20 fabulous, beautiful and blissful years of life, I have complied a wishlist of things I don’t really need but would love to have in my closet.
In all honesty, I don’t really even want anything for my birthday. My parents are coming up to Columbia to celebrate with the twin and I and I have so me plans with friends for the weekend (three day weekends all semester can I get an amen). Honestly though, maybe that’s growing up; being happy with what you have.
My Zara favorites. I tend to ask for accessories as gifts, they’re more timeless and I can get more use out of them than just a single piece of clothing..
I mean, it’s Topshop..that’s really all I need to say
Eugenia Kim creates some seriously fantastic hats. A little red fox ear cap?? Yes please
Nasty Gal shoes, coats and lingerie. Thank you.
For Love & Lemons features beautiful and bewitching dresses and now has an entire line devoted to lingerie. Skivvies are the perfect birthday gift…am I right?
