Loving Lately: Birthday Edition

My birthday is coming up at the end of the month and I can be difficult to buy for. Whenever I shop, I always know exactly what I'm looking for and I'll search and search and search until I find the. perfect. item. And then I stop searching. So I decided to make things easier for everyone and put together a little list of things I would absolutely love and adore and would hug the giver for days on end.

1) For the very generous giver: A Kate Spade bag. Oh yes!
2) For the non-material giver: Alt Summit classes. I'd love to take this one or this one.
3) For the lush giver: Mrs. Lillien's Cocktail Swatchbook. Perfect for Midweek Mojitos.
4) For the fashionable giver: A Melie Bianco tote.
5) For the nautical giver: Adorable striped shorts from Old Navy.

And for the exceptionally loving, adoring, super loaded giver:

Oh how I long for a vacation here. It popped up on my instagram feed this weekend as Elise Blaha Cripe vacationed there and ever since then, I have been thinking, "How can I make this happen??" One day, friends. One day.

So there it is, ladies. The official Emily Love List of 2012. What's on your love list?

  1. Handbags are always on my love list. I have a little bit of an obsession. Great choices on yours!

  2. LOVE the bag choices!! Oh, and the shorts (obviously)...The Saguaro may be a bit too bright for my liking, especially after the shocking amount of fruit flavored liquor I would be sure to drink once arriving there. Still, don't count me out if you take a trip there!

  3. I discovered this hotel a while ago, SO awesome! I would love to go here as well!!

  4. Hi! I just found your blog on passionfruit and sent in a free ad onto your page, I put up your ad as a free spot on my page as well :) Your blog is so cute!!

  5. I adore everything on your list (especially that hotel!) :)
    I just found your blog and absolutely love it!

  6. That hotel looks amaze!! I've not heard of it before, and Palm Springs is a mere two hours from my house!! I'm going to have to check it out on my next trip to the desert for sure.
