Birthday Wish List 2015


A week from today is my birthday! Naturally I have a few items in mind that I'd like to welcome into my home, so I figured why not share those bits with you! Given my tendency to want pricier pieces, I hope family and friends don't splurge that much. This compilation will act more as my own list of items I want to save up for.

I currently use a point and shoot Olympus camera for photos and videos. Previously being a Canon girl, I still love them, but have also been very impressed with what Olympus has to offer. What I love about this camera is not only the white vintage look, but the fact that it has a flip-down screen (great for pictures and vlogging!) and a detachable lens. Lenses make all the difference for a camera. This may not be a DSLR, but with the ability to change lens, the quality will be quite close. Plus, this is more compact than those fancy shmancy clunky cameras. This isn't just a "want," it's an investment. ;)

As I just mentioned, lenses play a huge role in the quality of a photo, regardless of how nice a camera may be. This lens achieves those shots with a crisp focus on a single subject or object with a soft blur in the background. Perfect for macro and fashion shots!

For the past two months, my friend has been kindly letting me borrow her tripod. Unfortunately for me she needs it back, so I'm left tripod-less. If I want to continue making YouTube videos (which I do!) I'm in desperate need of one. This particular one is very similar to hers; however I'm making sure the one I purchase has the handle for rotating the camera. Gotta have that 360 degree motion capability!

No matter how nice your camera is, great consistent lighting is essential. Softboxes provide even lighting and make for clearer brighter photos and videos. I could get away with one box, but I rather two so it's at least closer to the triangle lighting setup. Plus, it'll illuminate my face better for videos! These+natural lighting=well I just can't wait to film!

Simply put, floor length mirrors are convenient for those quick Snapchat and Instagram outfit pictures. This white faux leather framed one is a pretty chic piece of decor. It would make a nice addition to my room. 

Being the makeup lover that I am, you'd think I already own a lighted mirror. However I do not; I use a round handheld. Frankly, it's about time that I purchase one of these types for my vanity! Maybe my makeup will turn out better from having great lighting! Flawless lighting=a flawless look, right??

Marshalls!! My love! This is my favorite store at the moment. I've been loving the clothes, shoes, accessories, home bits, etc they've been offering lately. I'm all about the quality items for much less. If I were to receive gift cards to Marshalls, or really any of the TJX stores, I'd be pleased as punch!

This is a shot in the dark, but oh well. Just putting it into the universe anyway. As someone who always sets goals, this is just another. I'm hoping to double how many subs I have by next week, so if you'd like to help make a b-day wish come true, you know what to do. ;)

Have a lovely day and stay fabulous! :)
