Who doesn't love birthdays? It means eating loads of cake, getting to do fun things and just letting the day be all about you. I personally love giving presents more than receiving them, it definitely feels good to spread the love. But, I thought for once I would show you what I got for my 22nd birthday. (Obligatory 'I'm in no way bragging etc etc etc) It's just something I enjoy reading when pondering the internet, so I figured, why not? I was a lucky girl this year and I'm so so grateful.....
Giftcards: Zara Home & Zara - Oh I do love a good gift-card! Some people think it's a thoughtless gift, I think the total opposite. You have the freedom to buy what you want, without the fake smile and 'oh, thaaaaanks' act going on. You know what I mean, yeah, I'm looking at you.
Beaded Top: New Look - Ok, so maybe this constitutes as a self-gift? I bought this myself on my birthday as I just felt like a treat, and I wanted to wear something new on the evening. It's a beautiful mesh black, beaded top from New Look, actually as part of their 'Cameo Rose' range which is actually brilliant.
Champagne & Prosecco - I received copious amounts of these!
Bath-set: Bayliss & Harding - My sister gave me this, she's an avid skincare/beauty fan, and loves buying bath / shower products all the time! Of course, she got me a sugary food related one.
Black Sunglasses: Zara - I'm obsessed with these cat-eye sunnies that were purchased with one of my gift-cards, they look so sleek and cool, I almost feel like I'm channelling Anna Wintour or VB.
My favourite gift of all. I've been lusting after a black Marc Jacobs purse for about the past 3 years. My boyfriend, very kindly, purchased me this one for my birthday. I absolutely love it, the real leather smell, the New York embossing and it's perfect, compact size ticks all the right boxes for me.
I hope you enjoyed me showing you what I got!
I don't know about you, but I love Birthdays!
Lots of love,
