I’m a big believer in vision boards and since we are in the digital age, I figure I’ll make my vision board on my blog. True, I won’t be able to see it everyday, but I figure this would be a great way to show my friends and family what I would like for christmas. A win-win. So, this is like a vision board/christmas wish list.
1. DSLR (Canon only)
I’ve always wanted a DSLR. I would like to take more pictures for the newspaper, but I find that people don’t take a point and shoot photographer seriously. I don’t blame them. Also, I might take this camera to Europe, but since I’m constantly afraid of getting ripped off, I may not.
2. Kindle Fire
I had an iPad 1 that my school provided for me. The only catch was that I had to return it when someone else needed it. At first, I didn’t mind, but now that it’s gone, I find myself wanting it back. I am the first person to admit that the iPad 1 was too heavy and I didn’t use it much because I didn’t like typing on it. With that said, I do love the iPad for the fact that I can read any book at any time or watch Netflix or Hulu. Since the iPad 2 is around $600, I started looking for a ereader that allows me to read a book or watch a movie when ever I feel like it. The Kindle Fire fits my standards. Duel-core processor and price tag is what made me jump from a Nook Tablet to the Kindle Fire. Unfortunately, I don’t know how the Kindle Fire is and the Nook Tablet could win me back after I start playing with it in the store. But specs wise, Kindle Fire looks better.
3. Money towards my Europe trip
Currently, I am in the red with my European trip. My friend, Mike, was nice enough to lend me the money for ticket to Europe. So, I owe him around $860. My goal to pay him back no later than Jan 5, 2012.
4. Moleskine Travel Journal
I saw this journal at Barnes and Noble about a month ago. I fell in love with it. I don’t understand the huge obsession with Moleskine and why it cost so much, but I like it because it remind me of Henry Jones’ journal from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Yesterday, Barnes and Noble was all sold out, but they did offer to ship it here, but I figured that was a sign that I shouldn’t buy it right now.
5. Rick Steves’ travel clothes line
6. Skin Care Products
I’m so lost when it comes to skin care. So far, I’ve been blessed with decent skin, but as I get older I feel the pressure of gravity taking my beauty away. Well, the lack of sleep, stress, and greasy food doesn’t help either, but I’m trying to change that as well. When it comes to skin care, I feel like there is a lot of propaganda. Try this for new skin. No, try me for younger looking skin. OH wait, try this other thing for baby skin. After all is said and done, you have $400 worth of skin products that you have no faith in. I’m starting to do my research on which skin care products to splurge on and what to buy at the drugstore.
7. Self-Hosted Blog
I want make my blog into a self-hosted blog. I think it’s about time to transition to the next step. With that big step, I am taking on not only more responsibility, but more out of pocket cost. I know I can do this.
8. Anti Theft bag
I want something cuter, but if that’s all they have, I’ll take it. I’ve been loving the cross shoulder bags and the one I have right now is a little too big, so I would a smaller one for when I…dare I say it…go on a trip. Ugh, sorry.
9. Belkin Mini Surge Protector/Dual USB Charger
My friend, Em, has this device and I fell in love with it. I can have my own mini charging hub in my room or where ever! This say in age, it’s hard to stay plugged in.
10. Michael Kors Quartz in Rose Gold
Look at it…so pretty! I’ve always wanted a Michael Kors watch. Honestly, I don’t own a watch, so I think it’s about time to become a big girl and get one.
What are some “visions” are on your board?
