Blogger Wishlist: Being Brazen & Gaia

Blogger Wishlist: Being Brazen & Gaia

I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already and so it’s time once again to find out what two fabulous bloggers are wishing for. Today we have the lovely Gaia from Italy and Miss Brazen from Cape Town. Even though they live miles apart, it seems they have something in common… a love of Chanel bags!

Being Brazen is one of my favourite local blogs, full of quirky daily ramblings, current addictions and things learnt on the weekend. She loves lists, writing and daydreaming. Although she likes to remain anonymous, her blog is full of personality and zest for life and I love visiting her for a daily dose of humour.
Being Brazen's wishlist
Over to you Brazen…
1) A black and silver quilted Chanel chain bag
2) Vivienne Tam Limited Edition “Butterfly lovers” HP mini laptop – so pretty!
3) A European holiday with the Boyf – so we can see Paris, South of France and Venice (photo via James Merrell)
4) A Cool-ER ebook reader so I don’t have to wait or go hunt in book stores for the books I want.
5) A cute sequined mini jacket, like the one on Sarah Jessica Parker  – I think it would be great to wear to my birthday party this month!
Love the laptop and of course a European trip would be amazing, thanks Brazen!
Our second wishlist is by Gaia who has the sweetest blog called, Alices Adventures in Wonderland. Gaia is one creative lady and is always busy creating things, baking or taking photos. She also loves taking trips to antique markets and sharing her finds with us. I love seeing what she gets up to and I don’t know how she manages to do so much! Take a visit to her blog for some Italian inspiration!
Gaia's wishlist
Over to Gaia…
1. Calligraphy, it’s something I’d love to learn and it’s on my “to do list”.
2. Girly Summer dress. Hoss Intropia, a spanish brand conquered me few years ago and I always have a crush on every collection, every season. Very girlish, with a strong personality. Romantic and feminine. I love their colors, fabrics, patterns… I’m totally faithful!
3. I adore bags. I dream of a black Chanel 2.55 Jumbo, classy and elegant to wear everyday with every outfits
4. I need Peonies for my home. White and pink bouquets all over the house. Smell so good!
5. Vintage/Shabby chic Furniture. I’m in the middle of a move and I’m decorating personally my new apartment. Me and my boyfriend we made the big decision: live together. We found a very nice apartment in the  center of our city. I like to nose around vintage and antique market to find beautiful and unique objects. I have a thing for chairs, jars, glasses and old frames. I like to fix old furniture. Paint them, change their initial function. My old wardrobe is now a beautiful sideboard …

Thanks so much Gaia, I wish my house was filled with peonies, especially today on this rather Wintery day! Next week we will have wishlists from Washington, D.C. and Scottsdale, Arizona.

    Hey Lana- I always love checking out Brazen's blog, I'm glad you featured her. Anyway, just a quick note to say my husband and I went to Hermanus this weekend for one last day of sunshine in the Cape and we stayed at Fernkloof! What a lovely sweet family you have (I didn't even know it was your parents' place) it was great hearing from them about you and your very creative sister. Anyway, your blog is beautiful, I check in daily and it is always a treat, keep up the great work. Jess
