More Shit I Want

I’m not sure if it’s this time of year or the fact that I generally like to have things but after my last wishlist post I was inspired to start noting down the things I’m lusting after.

Here a few more things I’d love to have to would also make excellent gifts for the left of centre girls in your life.

wishlist

  1. Anything from Trixie Delicious – This clever lady make me want to collect plates and tea cups so bad. So far I’ve only managed to score one of her badges emblazoned with flowers and the word Creep, but I’d really love some of her plates hanging in my house, the cruder the better.
    I wish I had a close gay friend so I could buy him the Gaybo plate!
  2. A watch – I’ve been trying to find one I want for ages, but these styles all seem quite cool.
    Bright pink from The Warehouse
    Black Plasteramic from ToyWatch

  3. Keep Calm posters – The Boys work has a nice printer so he might be able to do these for me ;]
    Bright solid colours please, no pastels, and definitely no orange.
    Get Excited and Make Things – download
    Keep Calm and Conjure a Patronus Charm (because I’m on a massive Harry Potter kick right now) from 3 Lambs Graphics
  4. Thrifted frames – Sure new frames are nice, but they’re expensive, and you can’t spray paint them without feeling guilty.
    I’d like to fill one of our walls with framed prints (like the posters above) big ones, little ones, whatever. So if you come across any cheap ones snap them up for me!
  5. 0g earrings – Because the holes in my lobes are 8mm wide I usually just leave my trusty plugs in but it would be nice to change it up every now and then. These earrings are so pretty!
    Horn Hearts from Bodyartforms
    Single flare light blue pyrex plug from Bodyartforms
  6. Feltidermy – Like taxidermy but with felt animals (even though The Boy feels really bad seeing soft toy heads on the wall. He said “what if that was Little Ted’s head on a plaque”. He’s a big softy!)
    Bunny and jackalope from Girl Savage on Etsy
  7. Books – With a particular focus on Harry Potter. While I’ve read all of the books in the series at least twice I only own books 6 and 7. Adding hard cover copies of books 1-5 would be awesome.
  8. VouchersReading cinemas movie vouchers, New World vouchers, and cleaning vouchers. To entertain us, feed us, and make us look like we’re less gross than we really are.
  9. Geek prideKeep out of direct sunlight. Nuff said.

My often updated wish lists can always be found on Amazon and Etsy.

Birthday Wishlist 2009

I love lists so what better way to celebrate an impending birthday by listing pretty stuff I would buy if money was no object. My birthday is this Friday, the 9th. Japanese will be had for dinner and on Sunday I finally get to go to the Lindale Centre and visit their candy shop. Yay.

Over the last year I’ve managed to procure 5 out of the 7 items on my 2008 wishlist!

2009-wishlist
  1. Tattoo – Yep. I’ve been going on about it so much that I couldn’t not put it on the list. I have three planned in my head. First one will hopefully be done in December.
  2. Books – I read SO much online but sometimes it’s nice to get engrossed in something 500 pages long instead of 1 page long.
  3. Booklight- I love reading in bed, especially when the weather is as cold and shitty as it is now. (spring, wtf is up?) The Boy usually goes to bed at least 5 hours before me though and hiding under the covers with a torch is a bit hard to do comfortably without moving around a lot. (I know it looks like a pregnancy test but I swear it’s not)
  4. Candy and cake – What would a birthday be without candy and cake? I have been searching for licorice bullets, the candy covered kind not chocolate covered, for AGES. They used to be everywhere and now they’re nowhere. *pout*
  5. Accessories – I have most accessories covered. But two things I can’t make myself are watches and earrings that fit a 0 gauge.
  6. Hand held card games – I’m not a gamer girl but I can get pretty obsessed with card games, and sudoku, and bejeweled. It’s be great if I didn’t have to sit at my computer to play. If I had a Nintendo DS I could put them all on there. :D
  7. DSLR Camera – Every amateur photographer/amateur narcissists dream. One of two items from last years list that I haven’t gotten yet.
  8. Skirts – I’m so over pants! I hope to see more skirts in my immediate future. I’m leaving the house on my bi monthly daylight excursion tomorrow (ah, later today :S) hopefully I’ll find some new pretties then.

Hier Und Jetzt – 7 August 2009

I’m listening to:Wow, wow, wow. Rick Astley and Nirvana who would’ve thought they’d make the best mashup!? I love this song so much.


Nirvana vs Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give Your Teen Spirit up


Jace Everett – Bad Things (better known as the True Blood theme song)

Watched this week: The Soloist

On my wishlist Best buy:
I’ve already linked to this bag twice, but I’ve been thinking about it all week and I haven’t mentioned it on here for 8 months so it’s time for another outing.
I. Want. This. Bag! Why is it so hard to ship internationally? :[
[Edit - I am such a dick, why in the past year did I not think to search the net to see if anyone else stocks their gear? Brain fog finally cleared and I just bought the bag from the UK at a cheaper price than getting it from Loungefly direct. I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself even though it took me so long!]

I’m loving: Being a geek, sleeping till noon, having a supportive partner and family, having a doctor that cares, True Blood, http://twitter.com/MsConstantine/status/3104724658, attracting great customers.

Hier Und Jetzt – 6 February 2009

On my iPod: Maroon 5 – It won’t be soon before long

Book I’m reading: The Lovely Bones – Alice Seabold
I wondered what all the fuss was about with this book but after reading only a couple of pages I could see. The writing style is amazing. It just grabs you. One of those books that makes you want to know what happens so bad that the only reason you put it down is because you fell asleep. If you’ve been putting off reading this just try the first few pages.

On my wishlist: This shirt from ThinkGeek will be mine!!!!

Keep out of direct sunlight

Best buy: Over $200 worth of jewellery gear. I’ve told myself I’m not allowed any more till I’ve made some jewellery to sell and I’ve launched my shop. Shouldn’t be long now :D

New blogs I’m following: Bella’s Threads; Doe Deere Blogazine

Favourite photo: I want to see a beach covered in snow for real!

Aurinkolahti beach

Now I’m off to spend the rest of my Waitangi Day at the beach. Have a lovely weekend!

And There Shall Be Skully Bags For All


Excuse the hideous photos but I’m just too excited about my new backpack to wait and get pretty ones!

I’ve had the white skully bag for a while now and it’s starting to break and it badly needs a wash, and then, like a guardian angel a co-worker told me she’d seen a pink one at the shopping centre near her house and wanted to know if I’d be interested in something like that. Well duh?! pink & skulls & a bag, woohoo.

So there on my desk this morning was my new bright pink bag with 8 pockets (I love pockets) and a shiny chain dangling off it, she’d also chucked in a a pair of pink skully socks for good measure.

The good thing about being unusual and having a clearly identifiable “brand” is that people know what you like.

Now I just need this Loungefly handbag which totally matches my backpack and shoes and I’ll be sated for a few weeks.

Birthday Wishlist 2008

It’s my birthday in exactly one week. Scary!
I’m going to be 23 this year.

So here’s my birthday wishlist. I don’t expect to get any of this stuff (well maybe cake) but I thought it would be fun to list expensive stuff too.

Sigh, here comes my friend narcissism again.

  1. Digital SLR camera – I know nothing about them except they take great photos. I want one, even though they’re huge and I don’t know how to use it. Oooo and a remote so I can take pictures of myself. :]
  2. CUPCAKES – Yea, I love cupcakes. Y’know, just in case you didn’t get that yet.
  3. A laptop – I’m currently using one borrowed from a friend who is overseas, or I’m stealing the boys one. I can’t customise either of them because they’re not mine.
    Deciding what I’m going to get is hard, I don’t want a Mac and I don’t want Vista, so that leaves me NO choices. I think the best I’m going to be able to do is get my programmer friends to make Vista useable and just roll with it.
  4. Roadtrip! – I haven’t been on a roadtrip in ages. We just got a new (to us) car and it’s so much prettier and cleaner than our last one. I’m really keen to go on a roadtrip and get away from work. Super Summer Starter will be my saviour in November. Details on that will be shared as soon as I have any.
  5. Femme Sud Diary Bag - I saw Gala sporting one of these and fell in love with it. So cool! Way out of my price range.
  6. Pink pretty stuff - Pictures are indicators only. Anything pink, black or light blue (or a combination) will get the thumbs up.
  7. Glasses – My ears are really wonky and my glasses are starting to annoy me because they are constantly getting bent out of shape.
    I’m ready to embrace the glasses once again and be uber geekay/designer cool with a statement pair. Finding ones that fit my face, look good, and don’t scare me with the price may be hard to find. Maybe when I’ve got my wear out of the $400 lenses I’m currently wearing (note that is only the lenses, not the frames).
  8. A haircut – I’m in desperate need. I don’t get my hair cut at a salon, I get the boy to cut it in a straight line. So I have no excuse to let it go verylong without a trim.
    I’m a disgrace.
