I love shopping. I find joy in looking at beautiful things and filling my home with them. I could spend many happy hours looking for clothes and jewelry to complement my style, my body, and my personality. There are few guarantees in this world, but I know I will always end up with $100 worth of skincare and make-up in my online cart if left alone on the Sephora website for more than ten minutes. Anyone spying on my browsing history has probably screamed in frustration because I am almost constantly looking at home décor items from Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, West Elm, Magnolia, and World Market. There is a running joke in my family that my grandmother, mom, and I all have long arms because we shop so much.
That said, I do have bills to pay and necessities to buy. I do not buy all of the things I want—or even most of them. The things that don't make the budget cut end up on wish lists, where they gather dust and are only appreciated or curated in the months leading up to my birthday or Christmas. But I like having a visual archive of things that make me happy, even if those things will never make it into my home.
So here we are.
Welcome to my wish list. It makes me smile, and I hope it makes you smile, too.
