Hiiii! Yes, it’s been awhile since I’ve last blogged about nothing. There’s no “but” to follow, I just haven’t posted anything. (Terrible, I know.) With Christmas and a New Year on its way, I thought it would be good to write about what I’m wishing for. I’m not the type to ask for a lot of things. It took me some time to come up with the items that you will see on the list below, because of that very reason. I knew I wanted to make this kind of post for this time of the year. Now that I have drafted one, I thought it would be fun and cute to share with my readers. So here it goes! In no particular order, here are my ten picks of things I am currently wishing for:
1. Axent Wear Cat Ear Headphones
Are these not the cutest headphones ever made? I’d considered purchasing the everso popular Beats by Dre headphones in one of those rad colors, but after coming across these cute cat-ear headphones I knew I had to have a pair. They totally fit my style and quirky personality (the LED accent lights come in different colors, too). It’s like having three of my favorite things combined: me, music, and cats. Winner, winner, chicken dinner! I don’t know where that last sentence came from, but I do know that whoever thought of the concept for these must’ve had me in mind when they created them. I cannot not have them!
2. Rosetta Stone
I haven’t been practicing my choice language in months now only because i think it’ll be more conducive and effective for me to have a tutor who primarily speaks the language I’m learning. I have just about every kind of language app there is installed on my Galaxy phone, but until I can find a tutor, I need something in addition to all those apps. I’ve heard good (and bad) things about Rosetta Stone. I have the app for it, too, and while it is helpful, it’s not really cutting it. I think having the entire set will be of better use. Maybe it still won’t be enough, but there’s only one way for me to find out . . .
3. Roundtrip Airline Ticket
I recently ordered a sweet leopard print 4-piece luggage set and I cannot wait to use it next year for my first real getaway to another part of the world. All I need is the roundtrip plane ticket and I will be set to go. 2015 couldn’t get her soon enough!
4. Apple Computer
Hmmm, I’m so used to using PC with Windows software that I’m not so sure how I will fair with a MacBook. I know Apple users are
scaringly crazily fond of the products. I, for one, have never used any kind of Apple electronic/iPhone/gadget, but I think it’ll behoove me to have an Apple computer in the longrun. We’ll see if I really will get one or if this will only remain as a wish.
5. Zuhair Murad
You guys and dolls just don’t know how much I love this designer. Seriously, you should see my Pinterest board with pins of Zuhair Murad collections all over it. If it has sequins, crystals, beading, embellishments, anything sparkly, it’s guaranteed to catch my eye. Zuhair Murad’s haute couture gowns have all of that and then plenty of more. What I also like about the dresses is how they seem to balance the designs with the right amount of material for revealing skin. I don’t think I’ve ever looked at a Zuhair Murad design and said I wouldn’t wear it. Never. I can see myself wearing the dress shown above. I’d look good in that, don’t you think? Yeah.
6. Big Bang (comeback) Album
It’s no secret around here that I’m a fan. I think VIPs would understand me when I say I need for the OT5 to make a real comeback STAT! A real one. No solo work; no touring, singing the same hits that made their fans fall for them. I need new music from all five of them together as a group, not separately. With army enlistment fast approaching for the members, it would be nice to have a new album from the guys to add to my playlist. I bought my first KPop album by BTS (“Dark and Wild”) not long ago since they’re the only other KPop group I listen to consistently. (In a sense I blame Big Bang for this, but I don’t regret it in the least bit.) And while I have grown very fond of BTS, I need for my “first love” to get in the studio, go back to their roots (I pray), and release a good bop. I repeat, 2015 couldn’t get here soon enough.
Living in the south where every day is a struggle with humidity and sweat in the summer heat, a girl is bound to sweat out her edges and “kitchen” (note: the kitchen is known as being the hair at the back of the neck that has a tendency of being untameable, for those of you that don’t know). The Edgestick solves that problem easily. It’s designed to get close enough to the scalp and edges without worrying and wincing about being burned, leaving unsightly scabs around the hairline. Every woman should have one in her curling iron drawer if she wants to maintain her smooth edges. (I know I’m not the only one with a curling iron drawer or closet.) I’m sick of having to borrow my mother’s (which, funny enough, I bought for her). It’s time that I have my own.
I recently found out about Scrivener on Pinterest. It’s a word-processing program for writer’s who need a bit of organization in their writing life. I usually outline my chapters in a notebook, jot down ideas or dialogue in a journal, type out sentences in my notepad app, and scribble character traits on sticky notes. I have several notebooks with words written all over it, front and back, and pieces of paper all over the place. Scrivener cuts down on all of the paper use and allows the writer to arrange and manage his/her thoughts at the click of a mouse button.
I need this software in my life . . . desperately.
9. Air Retro Jordans
Because I’m not as “hip” like all the other cool cats . . .
I’ve never owned a pair of Jordans in my life. I’m 30+ old now and I’m finding myself wanting a pair, particularly the Air Jordan Retro 3, Air Jordan 11, and the Air Jordan 9 “Birmingham Barons” style. I don’t want all three, no. One pair will do just fine, that’s if I can ever find them. My homeboys tell me that I will have to get them online from stores like eBay or Amazon, and I’m like, “No!” How am I supposed to know if they’re authentic? If I’m gonna drop $400-$500 on a pair of shoes I’m buying off someone I’ve never met before I need to be confident that I’m indeed investing in Air Jordans and not Air Gordans or some crap, you get my drift. I really wish I would’ve bought them when they were sold in the Champs and the Foot Lockers and Finish Lines. I don’t know. I may just continue wishing for these.
While every other woman is asking her husband or boyfriend for the new Michael Kors handbag (or whatever hot item women are into these days, I wouldn’t know), I’m asking for a Brahmin. Well, not really, since I already have one as my Christmas present in a limited edition color. I’ve been in love with Brahmin bags since my days in college and I’ve always wanted one. Now, I have one . . . that I’m not permitted to open till Christmas Day. That’s fine! At least I know I got one now!
What are some items you’re currently wishing for? Making a list is fun to do. Do it for the heck of it even if it seems silly, and see how many things you come up with.
