Sarah's Birthday Wishlist

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

You might be thinking... what? Haha! My friend Sarah mentioned how much she loved my gift guides last year and that she really wished that she had one for this year for her birthday. The more I thought about it I thought about how fun it would be to do! My sweet friend is a new mama to a precious baby girl and lives in Washington DC with her husband who works on the White House media team and has a very interesting instagram. No matter what you think about the current administration (this is literally the only politically oriented statement that will go on my blog ever!) you can't argue that it's interesting to see instagram snaps from someone working there!

So there's some background information on them and their cute selves and the mindset I was in while shopping for her. :)

Joggers- I've been super intrigued by cozy joggers lately. For slightly cooler temperatures they would be so cute with a tee, denim jacket, and tennies for out and about.. and just plain cozy for cuddling a sweet baby at home.

Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Face Mask- Face masks have become a small addiction of mine recently. After long and busy days there is nothing that relaxes me like a good old mask. I had this one recommended to me and I LOVE it! I put it on before bed and you don't have to wash it off or anything and it makes your skin feel so luxurious. The perfect treat for a new mama on her birthday! :)

Monique Lhullier for Pottery Barn Rose Gold Photo Frame- These are so unique, classic, and beautiful.. even with the trendy finish. I think that a 5 x 7 would be perfect for Sarah to put a favorite photo of her sweet girl. If you like the style, but want the more classic silver finish, those are available here.

Every girl needs some jewelry on her birthday wishlist. :) I like this delicate initial necklace (in "L" for her daughter) and these classic drops in clear for the upcoming holidays, and this classy twist on the tassel earring trend.

I'm so excited for the upcoming release of Emily Ley's new book, The Simplified Life, and it would be a perfect gift for Sarah!

Scalloped booties? YES. I wish the price point was a little lower on these, but Jack Rogers does last forever.

My number one gift pick for Sarah is an "O ring"... this giant keyring seems frivolous but it is the BEST gift for a mama on the go. It can serve as a chew toy for baby (Beau loves to wave mine around still!) and it's easy to find in your purse. I also love having it on my wrist when we just run in somewhere. It seems like such a random thing but it's one of those that once you have it you don't know how you ever lived without it.

These are a splurge for slippers but there is a reason they sell out every November. They are the perfect gift and are incredible quality. I just know Sarah would wear them daily while DC is oh so chilly!


  1. I love every single item on this list!!! This is the perfection collection of gift ideas for a new mama! *HEART EYES* :)

  2. Love this gift guide! And those scallop booties?!! I may need to gift them to myself! So cute!

  3. My UGG slippers are my favorite - totally worth it to purchase! That O ring is super interesting - I feel like I need one because I always have trouble finding my keys in my bag - and it is much cuter than the little clasp I have everything on!

  4. I wore my black Jack Rogers scalloped booties to work this morning! Love them. They are just the right height, never painful, and I can walk all over the place in them and feel just fine.

  5. Love the rose gold frames. I have the Kate Spade rosy glow frames in our guest room and they are so pretty with our pictures that I printed from Minted with rose gold foil. Love, love, love rose gold picture frames. :)
