Since arriving in Paris, it’s become apparent that I’m missing some necessities. I’ve managed to locate a full length mirror and, courtesy of my trip to Madrid, some new shoes, but here are some things I’m still hoping to find. I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, so I swear it’s a coincidence that it happens to be two weeks until my birthday…

Without further ado, my current wish list includes:

1. A fun sweatshirt to wear to take the kids to school, or over a collared shirt to class.

2. I’ve had trouble committing to spending money on a jacket that isn’t less that 30 euros, but I think this could be the one.

3. A watch to keep track of every time I tell the kids “10 more minutes!” (Though my current strategy of telling them 10 minutes and telling them, “Time’s up!” five minutes later has been working wonderfully. Note to self: make sure no one buys them watches, ever.)

4. THIS CAMERA. Number four on this list, number one in my heart. It makes everything look hip and fun, and obviously I need it to capture all my favorite views of Paris, then use the photos to decorate my room/every room in my life forever. Secret birthday gift giver, don’t forget to buy me film too.

5. A portable mini-sketchbook and an adorable pencil case, because if nothing else I’m going to use this year abroad to become the talented illustrator I’ve always wanted to be.

      1. It’s adorable! An all year round piece, definitely. 🙂 I always find way too many things I “need” while traveling in Europe, but justifying it as something you can’t easily get in the states helps. Just in case you’ll need to treat yourself in the near future. 😉
