I turn 18 in a few weeks and whoa, slow down time, take it easy will you?
Anyway, a few of my friends have been asking what I want for my birthday this year, so I thought I’d put together this list instead of forgetting everything!
This is NOT a passive-aggressive “hint hint my birthday is coming up” kind of thing—I just wanted to put this together for anyone out there wondering!
I mean if you’re my parents though and you’re reading this, then yes take this as a hint-hint
This is basically just kind of a wishlist of things I desire to acquire one of these days, hopefully by the day of my birth.
I really don’t need a single thing, I truly love just living life and my many incredible blessings already. But I think my life would be complete if I just had some scrunchies. All I have is this really old weird black one.
I am CONSTANTLY trying to get some but it never works out. I really want scrunchies in solid, deep colors, like maroon, white, navy, gray, silver, bold yellow, bold pink, etc. A scrunchie bow or scrunchie scarf would be so cute too.
I LOVE THEM SO SO MUCH. I only have one string of fairy lights, but I adore them, and I want to get more so I can decorate my whole room with them!
Pura Vida bracelets or necklaces
(picture from Pura Vida’s website)
I LOVE Pura Vida bracelets so so much. And I also really want this sunflower necklace choker of theirs. Or literally anything from them.
Ninja wall decals
If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with ninja. Why else have I been writing historical fiction about them for the past five years?
Silver hair cuff hairband
Like this silver hair cuff looks so cute and elegant and snazzy. It would make my plain ponytails actually cute.
Black, simple, but modern epic-looking sunglasses that aren’t too big for my face
Why can’t I find these?!?! A swag gal like me needs sunglasses to sassily slide down her nose at her enemies, you know?!
A bunch of really specific doll clothes from Etsy, so an Etsy gift card would be pog
(pog/poggers = gamer speak for “awesome”)
Specific things from American Girl so an AG gift card works
Or American Girl books. I love American Girl books.
Literally ANYTHING IN THE WORLD that is adventure themed or has the word “adventure” on it
I am obsessed with adventure (this blog is proof) and I will buy anything—journals, pens, shirts, bags, posters—that is adventure themed or has the word “adventure” on it. Also mountain icons because mountains are like the symbol of adventure!
Okay, that’s it fam!
It’s been quite a while since my last post and I really, really need to update you on how I survived the Texas record-breaking winter storm, where I’m at in life, what I’ve been up to, also it’s SUMMER and I have an entire summer bucket list I have to post?? Yeah it’s been crazy.
But yes, there you have it, random things I desire for the day of my birth. Do you like any of these things I’ve listed? How similar are our birthday wishlists?
IT’S SUMMER! SUMMER IS THE BEST!!! Yes I’m living it up!!!
SCRUNCHIE SCARVES ARE SUPERIOR CHANGE MY MIND

YAY XD Dude yes! I need all the scrunchies! Yessssss :’) and THANK YOUUU!
Happy 18th birthday!! I love fairy lights, too – they’re so magical!
Thank you so much Joy! Aren’t they just beautiful?
This was a really cool post! I was hoping to see another one! 🙂 🙂
One of the things we have in common in our lists… I have WAY too many scrunchies (I use them everyday unfornately) and so they wear out way too quickly… or either my dolls steal them or they just disappear….
I can’t believe you’re turning 18!!!!!!! *gasp* I hope you have an AWESOME birthday! And just wanted to ask, what dolls did you get?
Thank you so much, Victoria! I’m so happy you liked it ?
YAY SCRUNCHIES! Hahaha! I imagine if you have a lot, you also lose a lot!
I know right!! And thank you so much! The dolls I got were Joss, then 35th anniversary Molly, Samantha, & Felicity. Have you gotten any new dolls lately?
I really do be over here trying to react to certain paragraphs with pognice/dementedlaughter I need help ???

Most crazily, ~Olive
If that ain’t a mood, … we’ll then it ain’t a mood. But it is. ?
Yes yes summer bucket list post anyone??
FUNN!! I really enjoyed this post. This is a super fun wishlist! I hope you get some of these things for your birthday! I’m also turning 18 this year, and it’s like… WHERE DID THE TIME GO?!?!?! How this possible? SO crazy, lol!!?
Happy early birthday!??
Thank you so much, Rosy!! HAHA I KNOW RIGHT. How are we going to be adults?! ? Thank you so much, and you too for whenever your birthday is!
Our birthday wish lists are not similar, but I’m a dude, so there’s that.
I doubt scrunchies and fairy lights would be your thing! ?
Ahh, Happy early Birthday Madi! I loved reading this post! I have that sunflower choker from Pura Vida and it is one of my favorites!! ?
Thank you so so much Hannah! HAHA, I’ve wanted it ever since I saw it in a blog post of yours, I’m pretty sure!
Hi Madi! I love scrunchies. They’re very useful for me and they don’t hurt my hair like other hair accessories. My mom and I actually found fairy lights at Wal-Mart. It was kind of cool that they had regular white LED lights and colored lights. I chose the colorful lights for my sister’s birthday. Now her dolls have have Christmas lights. Hmm. I have glasses so I can’t really wear sunglasses! Lol. Wow! 18? I thought you were the same age as me. I didn’t know that we were born almost two years apart. Happy Birthday!!!
Have a great day!
Scrunchies are the best! I love using fairy lights for my dolls, too. Yes! You are two years older! Which would make you 20 now? Whoa!
Thanks so much!!
Hi Madi. Actually I’ll be 20 next March. I feel really weird knowing that I’ll be two decades old. When I was turning ten, it was such a big deal being a whole decade. Every time my parents ask how old I am they’re saying “Woah!” too. It’s funny. So much time has passed. Have you decided anything on college or your career path? Have a great birthday!
That is so crazy!! I’m going to be an author for my career. What about you? I know you’re doing/finishing up some college, how is that going?
At least you know what you’d like for your birthday, I tend to blank out on gifts I want sometimes ?
BAHAHA, I can relate to that some years XD
Yes, all of these things! I hope you get what you want!
I need a new pair of sunglasses…all mine are currently broken.
Thanks so much Diamond! Sorry I never replied to this??? LOL
Fairy lights are so cool. 🙂
I know right!
