glitter nail polish. of any color. of all colors.
pretty cupcake liners.
artichoke tea lights from ruche.
gold knot bracelet.
I feel like birthdays are a good excuse to get yourself some fairly impractical things, like everything on that list. I don't even bake cupcakes that often, and tea lights shaped like artichokes are kind of ridiculous (but really adorable). To my credit, my mom did get me an on sale cardigan and 4 lbs of yeast, both of which I will put to very good use.
If your birthday was a week from today, what would you be asking for?
