Mother's Day Wish List

Mother’s Day is just days away. There are a few items I’ve wanted that I think would improve my blogging, along with some pampering items that I think every mom needs in order to wind down after a long workday/week.

Momma needs a new camera!

I really want a new DSLR camera.  My Sony a35 takes good pictures, but, I’d like to be able to view myself while recording or taking photos while the phone is sitting on a tripod. Since the Sony a35’s viewer only shifts up and down, side to side, and not outward, I’m unable to see myself while recording videos or taking photos.

My dream camera is the Canon T4i, but I will settle for the Canon T3 18MP.

… And a New Camera Case

If I do not get a new camera, I need a small camera bag for my Sony a35.  I like the Camson Quality Compact Holster Camera Case I found on Amazon.  I often travel with my camera to events, and lately, I’ve either opted to use just my iPhone or took the risk of not putting the camera in its bag because the bag is just bulky, and unattractive.  I think the Camson Quality Compact Holster Camera Case would be perfect for me because it will allow me to safely transport my camera in my bag without it getting damaged. After a little mishap I had over the weekend that happened because I had water and the camera in my purse, I know I definitely need something like this!

I also need a zoom lens, too!

Momma needs to be pampered

Of course, I’d love a spa day, but I’d settle for a few of my favorite items or gift sets from the following brands:

LUSH Cosmetics

Some of my favorite products from LUSH are Sultana of Soap, Sandstone soap, Dark Angels Fresh Face Cleanser, Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner and more. There are items I still want to try, and LUSH has some great new gift sets created with mom in mind to keep us energized and relaxed.

My picks are…

Wonder Woohoo Bubble Bar ($6.95)

Hello Sweetie Gift ($16.95)

Mum Gift if you’re splurging ($54.95)


L’Occitane’s Almond Shower Oil is my favorite from the brand. I also love their fragrances (Magnolia & Mure is my favorite), and hand creams.  L’Occitane has some great sets that include these items.  Check them out here:

Momma needs a nice Summer Glow

If you read my other blog, you’ll know how badly I need a vacation.  We are planning one for around my 30th birthday, but, it would be nice to get away for one weekend in the sun.  I mean, I do need to boost my Vitamin D levels.  If not, I will settle for the bronzing powder I’ve been lemming over for what seems like forever, which is the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder.  At least that way I can pretend like I went away.



Guerlain Terracotta Moisturising Bronzing Powder

That’s about all of the things I would like to receive as a Mother’s Day present.  It’s called a wish list for a reason, it doesn’t mean I will get them.

  4. I loveeeee my T3i but I think the T4i is better because I believe the focus is automatic. That's the one thing that's annoying about the T3i, other than that it's a great camera. I hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day!
