THIS IS IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER!
I was SUPER excited to write this post (because my friends and family have been HOUNDING me about what I want), but now I’m feeling kinda anxious about this entire thing, WHY?!
Well I’m SUPER SPECIFIC about what I like. So if I ask for a pink spoon and get a red one then it’s just not the same. You know what I mean, babes? It’s my birthday! Things need to be RIGHT. Almost doesn’t count. Plus as you read on you’ll notice that many of the items on my wishlist are very special and personal to who I am.
So back to my birthday…
My birthday is EXACTLY one month away and like a typical dreamy pisces I’ve romanticized it without even knowing what my plans are. What’s your sign? Is your birthday typically a big deal or what? Do you like to celebrate it or act like it doesn’t exist?
I’m a pisces and agree with many of the traits that are associated with my sign. To be a bit more specific my exact birthday is MARCH 18. I won’t bore you by including le details in this blog post, but WOAHH do I resonate with my sign. One example is the fact that we are DREAMY. Prime example: I’m not even sure how I will be celebrating my birthday this year, but I’m excited! Luckily, while I may not have plan yet, I do have a pretty GREAT idea about what I want to get myself.

Here’s Brielle's Birthday Wishlist 3.18.2019:
I don’t have a green thumb AT ALL and CocoLily is always attacking the few succulents or flowers that I manage to bring home. NEVERTHELESS, plants are SO beautiful and create the perfect aesthetic for any space. I’m thinking REAL plants would be my preference, but again between CocoLily and I it might not last long. Fake plants and flowers in general just seem so tacky to me, but I’ve definitely noticed some good fake options lately at places like Marshalls and Home Goods. REAL or FAKE? What do you think, babes?
Not even sure where to start. This desire for crystals began because of how gorgeous they are, but I never purchased because #1 I wasn’t sure if some were real while others were fake/low quality and #2 I always felt like they had a greater purpose beyond decoration.
Now I’m totally ready to buy my first crystals! Lately, I’ve learned about the different types of crystals, their purposes and meanings. My plan is to initially purchase 1-2 crystals that resonate MOST with me. I’m think a clear quartz for sure, but we will see what happens. Seems like everything is falling into place and it’s only a matter of time before I know I need to purchase my first crystal. Do you know what I mean? I’m letting my intuition guide me.
It’s been working out thus far. Finding a shop I resonate with was a challenge and then a few days later I was presented with TWO great options. Definitely shoot me a DM on Instagram if you want that information. One definitely ships worldwide and has AMAZING options ranging from $20-$1,000+. Please note this is a rough range based on what I’ve seen so far with them. I would not be surprised if they have more expensive crystals. Some are MASSIVE and soooooo gorgeous. I’ve also found that this particular vendor has crystals in all shapes, sizes, and forms (typical, bracelet, necklace, platter, bath soap, etc.)
In an effort to practice wellness that hits all 7 dimensions of wellness, I’ve started to look at how I can improve my environmental habits. One easy and really helpful way has been to use glassware. First of all glass looks SO good. Secondly, it’s better for the environment than using plastic.
Would you want more information about how I’m enhancing my lifestyle in this aspect? Here’s 2 more points I’d like to mention real quick!
I didn’t want to just throw out my old plasticware so I’m giving a lot of it to my mom (probably belongs to her originally anyways, haha) and then donating the rest to Good Will.
Some of the glassware is from old jars of condiments or other foods. Instead of throwing the glass jar away I washed them and am using them to store beverages. This is great for juicing or smoothies.
Let me know if you like these tips and want to hear more!
Now back to le list….
A KITTEN for CocoLily and I
CocoLily will be a year old in April, babes! Kittens are considered adults or cats once they turn one year old. Since my birthday is the month before CocoLily’s I thought this would be the perfect gift for us both. I’ve had two cats at the same time before and it definitely has its trade offs.
This is ALWAYS a great gift for me, babes!
My #1 FAVORITE is definitely amazing grace by Philosophy, but I also LOVE Elizabeth and James. The white and black are a hard toss up but definitely my go to picks!
