Awesome stuff roundup!


So my birthday is about 2 1/2 weeks away! It might not be exciting to get older for lots of people, but my family has always made birthdays a pretty special thing, and my friends are always super great to me as well, so I love my birthday!

I'm now going to admit my age.... I'm going to be 24...GASP!
I never thought I'd be older than 18 and here I am going on 24!

So, I wanted to show you some really cool gadgets that I have found lately! You could call this a birthday wish list of sorts....or you could just call is an "Awesome stuff roundup!"

First is my favorite! It is only $14 dollar which made me instantly want to buy it, but the shipping is $8 so I put it on hold, but I think it is amazing:
It is a candle stick that is actually a lighter for real candles! I always have a hard time finding our candle lighter, but if it is part of your decor in your house, you will never have to go searching in a drawer for it! This is number one on my list of must have useless things!!!! Love it!
You can buy it HERE

I really really really want this series of books! I have the one shown above, but I do not have the others! I have no idea if they are good or not, so don't think I am telling you to go out and buy them for yourself, but I want to read them badly as soon as I finish The Sookie Stackhouse series!

I have wanted this cupcake necklace for a while! They discontinued them right before Christmas so of course it did not make my Christmas list, but they are back! I love this hot pink color, but there are a few other colors to choose from. If you like this as much as I do, you can purchase it HERE for yourself.

This headband is from Target. I love it! You can also get it HERE at but I have seen them in stores, so you should be able to pick one up there!
These owl bookends haunt me every time I go into Borders. I'm pretty sure they were made with me in mind. Aren't they cute? You can get them HERE for $25.

I just wanted to update about those few things, hope you saw something that you might like for yourself!

Happy Shopping!


  1. OMG, I just ♥ the cupcake necklace and the headband! So cute. I'm also reading the Sookie Series (book 6) and The Vamp Diaries are next on my list. LOL, you have great taste! :P Well, thanks for sharing your list. I hope you get everything you want for your birthday. :)

  2. I never thought I would be older than 25, so I know what you mean ;) Just wait until you’re 31 like me….ahhhh.

    The candle lighter is so clever. I don’t really know anything about The Vampire Diaries book series, but I definitely love the show. The cupcake necklace is adorable and I also love the headband.

    Those owl bookends have your name written all over them!

  3. Those are some cool things.
    The bookends are really beautiful!

  4. Love that cupcake necklace! I am sorry you are getting SO old:) I will be 56 in May! Now that is a bit older than you... hehe. Still feel like a spring chicken! Hugs to you and thanks for sharing these goodies with us! Have a blessed day!

  5. So i am a tad jealous. Target over in America land is so freaking awesome, they have pretty stuff and cool accessories that people actually want to wear!

    Over here in Australia its all trashy and cheap stuff that people just wouldnt want to wear. That headband is really lovely, you NEED it ;)

    And the candle lighter is awesome too! Nice finds :)

  6. When is your big day? I am turning 25 on Feb. 17th! This bday is a pain because my license expires and I have to do a name change with social security first. Aye curumba! That head band is so pretty! I love the sparkles on top. Great finds as always my friend!

  7. Happy early Birthday! 24! You are still so young! Great finds, love the owls, of course. Have a great rest of the weekend and I can't wait to hear how you celebrate this birthday.

  8. Hey old woman! LOL I would buy you every single thing on your wish list IF I was rich :) I love that candle lighter....very cool idea. The headband is super cute, but when I have tried to wear them in the past I get headaches :(

  9. I hope you find some milk glass vases...keep checking at the thrift stores.
    I remember..WAY back in the 70's when Owls were in "style" for home decor...
    I hope you get all the items for your up coming birthday!
    Deb :)
