I think it’s fair to say that we’re both feeling pretty lucky and well-loved right now after a spectacularly lovely birthday in Deal and lots of lovely cards and presents. We really are surrounded by a lovely bunch of people. So today we thought we’d discuss some of the awesome treats we’ve received recently and also a few we’ve things we’ve treated ourselves to as well. Because giving yourself an extra treat on your birthday is most definitely a good thing!
Please tell me that other people do this. It can’t just be me. I think it’s a mixture of things I’d spotted pre-birthday for my list that I didn’t get and being given money and vouchers for my birthday it’s basically all about the treats right now.
First up here’s Laura’s treat list.
Rain Jacket / Striped Top / Necklace / Heart Bookmark
14th Deadly Sin / Bird Mug / Stone Bracelet / White Deck Shoes
I love getting birthday money. It’s just perfect when there’s something you’ve been wanting to treat yourself to. I have been wanting this raincoat for ages and ages, so it was so lovely to go and buy it this month. Perfectly timed too as it looks like the spring showers are about to arrive. I also received clothes from both my sisters; a jacket and a blue striped top, which go perfectly together (totally unplanned by them) which is great as with a lot of clothing currently in storage I seem to be running out of clothes!
The storage issue is also to blame for that fact that I’ve also bought new shoes and (another) striped top. I don’t wear a lot of jewellery but what I do wear is normally quite simple. Which is why I am so pleased with the bracelet and necklace that I received this year. They are both so perfectly me. We all know that there’s nothing I like more than curling up with a good book and a cup of coffee so new books and mugs are always gratefully received. The quote on the mug is just perfect and means so much to me. Plus a Tiffany bookmark? Love it. I may have squealed at the blue box!
And now to Fi…
Stripey shoes / Grey and Coral Reversible Bag / Green Onyx Ring / The Girl on The Train
iPad Mini / iPad Mini case / 36 Hours in Europe and London / Necklace
I was lucky enough to receive some lovely gifts for my birthday, such as these stripey shoes and gorgeous Joules necklace from one sisterling and this brilliant travel book and stunning ring from the other sisterling. All of the accessories have barely been off me since I first got them. Simply because they go with everything! I couldn’t have chosen better myself. I also love that they make it look like I’ve made an effort when I really haven’t. Generally I’ve thrown the first clean outfit I can find on and then accessorised.
And now to the bits I’ve treated myself too… I know that’s bad of me, but what’s a girl to do when she gets birthday money and vouchers? I’ve been deliberating about buying an iPad for a while now as mine is really on its last legs. Even so this new treat one was most definitely an impulse buy, but a good one as I’ve used it loads already! And of course a shiny (expensive) iPad needs a new case so hello stripey anchor one that ticks all the boxes. And finally my last treat for a while – for obvious reasons – a new bag. There’s so much I love about this bag. The quality, size, gold tags and reversible coral and grey options. With two colour options it’s basically two bags in one. So even more cost efficient, no?
– So have you been treating yourself too, please tell us you have and make us feel lots better!
