About a year ago, I made a post called My Bike Lust List. Well, today I was cruising at the beach and stopped at a bike shop to look for some new handlebar grips. A very pretty bike in the window (an Electra, of course!) caught my eye and I had to look it up online (because I didn’t drool over it enough already when I was at the shop)! I soon discovered that there are three new bikes that need to be added to my lust list!
First up, the bike that caught my eye in the shop, Sugar Skulls! Sugar skulls are hard to not like. They’re skulls and they’re pretty, making them the perfect combination of bad-ass and girly, right?!
This one, called Navajo, popped up while I was searching for Sugar Skulls and I got so excited! It has a very bohemian feel to it, which I love!! I love the designs, the colors, and especially the little tassels hanging from the seat!
I think I actually gasped when I saw this one, called Night Owl! A bike with owls on it?! That’s too much awesome in one place! Blue isn’t really my color but it is very pretty and suits the theme well. I’m loving the little stars and moons as well!
All pictures in this post are linked to where I found them. These bikes are all made by Electra and you can find out more about them here.
‘Tis the season to go biking shopping/wanting, me thinks! What are you lusting after or buying yourself? Do share! :)
I’m totally attracted to anything yellow right now. But this bag has it all. Yellow + sparkle + pom poms! I love them all actually, and wouldn’t be able to decide which one to buy. Maybe I should work on a bag pattern when I’m done with these barefoot sandals I’ve been making? :)
This Etsy shop, Tiny Galaxies, has lots of cute glitter earrings! I normally don’t wear earrings but I’d totally break my earring-free streak for these!
I kinda hate admitting when I like something from Hot Topic, but I want this shirt.
I must have sequin shorts! How awesome are these?! So sad that they’re sold out! :(
Ok, so these aren’t even sparkly, but I like studs all the same! :P
This seems like more of a wishlist than usual. I’ve really been wanting to shop for new clothes lately! What’s on your wishlist right now?
My birthday is Wednesday and I’ve been meaning to put together a wishlist forever now. My family still demands one from me every year, but it’s something I usually love doing anyway, even without an occasion. But this one was really hard for me, which I guess, is why I kept putting it off. I’ve been unemployed for so long that I guess I’ve just gotten used to not being able to have things. Sad, right? I know my blog is called Gleeful Things, but I’m allowed to have my moments. Being happy 100% of the time isn’t normal. So, I guess what I’m really wishing for is a job. But other than that, here are some things I’d like! :)
♥ 1. This pretty fringy dress from Swell!
♥ 2. This bunny ears ring from Etsy! I could actually make an entire wishlist of just big, funky rings that I want!
♥ 3. A new LED hoop (mine died about a year ago)! I’m loving this one from Mood Hoops! Pink and orange is kinda my thing!
♥ 4. A big furry hat! I’d be happy with just a piece of fabric to make my own though. :)
♥ 5. Minnetonka fringe boots! I’ve been wanting these for SO long! Pic is from here.
♥ 6. A cute little leather bag, like this one. Because I need to stop carrying such a huge purse all the time!
♥ 7. Dew Drops yarn from Michael’s. This is so pretty, it has sequins in it!
♥ 8. A fire hoop!! I would be so excited to celebrate my birthday with fire!
♥ 9. Tinsel hair extensions! I just recently saw these for the first time and I thought they were so pretty! I love sparkle!
♥ 10. Lustrous Lamb yarn from Joann’s. Ok, so I may already have some! But I’d love more! This is a new favorite of mine! I’ll have to post a review soon.
I went to Bath & Body Works last week and I got so excited when I saw their Halloween stuff! I have to share my favorite things with you because you know I love Halloween things! Links are at the bottom.

I always find myself looking at bikes and bike accessories online. I think part of me wishes I could own a bike shop. Another part of me just wishes that I could own several different bikes because there are so many pretty ones out there! Every time I’m at a bike shop, I always notice the Electra bikes. They’re always the prettiest ones in any shop.
The other day, I was at a bike shop with my friend while she bought some accessories. I noticed this purple bike that I would have taken home with me in a second if I had the money! It’s called Karma:
Karma would definitely be my first choice, but I love these ones also:
If you wanna know more about any of these bikes, check out the Electra website. All of the pics in this post were gathered from various websites/blogs and are linked to their sources. :)
