25 is almost here!

Last year,  I shared a rather deep blog post as my 24th birthday was approaching. I ended the post with the hope that 24 would be a fantastic year, and it was. I don’t have a letterpress studio (yet) and I still haven’t gone star-gazing, but I traveled; went to museums, concerts, ballets, etc.; continued to grow in my career; found love; and even became more self-assured.

All the dreams I shared last year still hold true, so I’m not going to write another post like that this year. Instead, I’m going to share a little wish list. I’ll probably treat myself to at least a few of these things as my birthday approaches. I’m 25. That’s a quarter of a century. I think I deserve it. :)


1. Chemex coffeemaker – I love my French press, but I also love pour over coffee (no sediment!). Now the only question is, three cup or six?

2. A haircut – Haircuts aren’t cheap, particularly for someone like myself who prefers to go to a DevaCurl certified stylist. I’m overdue for a haircut.

3. Rings – I don’t wear jewelry often, apart from earrings. My style has changed quite a bit since I acquired most of the jewelry I own. I would love some more simple pieces. I really like a lot of the rings in this Etsy shop. I also like this necklace.

4. Bert bath – My dog needs a bath. I don’t have a bathtub and it’s too cold outside to use the hose. A bath/nail trimming is $35, thus, Bert doesn’t get baths as often as I’d like.

5. Art prints – There are a few areas of my house where I’d like some more or new art. The bathroom is one of those places. Yes, the bathroom deserves to be pretty, too. I love these sea prints and I they’d go well with the color scheme in my bathroom.

6. Maxi dressPetite maxi dress for my petite self. Need anything else be said?

7. Phaidon Design ClassicsThese have been on my wish list for at least three years. The backstories of 999 everyday things considered to be “design classics.”

8. Roadtrip – It’s been a while since I’ve gone on a vacation or road trip. Maybe a weekend trip to D.C.? I need travel!

9. Chandler and Price letterpress – That letterpress studio I want? Well this would be the start of it—the most essential component.

10. A chair for my bedroom (not pictured) - I recently moved my office (computer, art supplies) to a separate room, so now I have some extra space in my bedroom. While I’d love a designer chair to go in the empty space, this much cheaper Ikea chair and footstool would be an acceptable alternative.
