I had a birthday!
My 25 year old face!
My 25th birthday was one of those days where it doesn't really feel like your birthday because you've taken the day off from work and then realised that of course its a Tuesday and everyone else is at work, so you sit indoors on your own not opening any presents and just waiting til everyone gets home!
I spent the day admiring my beautiful cake made by my lovely lovely friend. Mint choc chip :: chocolate sponge decorated with mint green buttercream, choc chips and chocolate buttercream piping, yes, she's brilliant!
I waited patiently til everyone got home to open anything, and I'm glad I did because I received some lovely pressies, all very me! Hope and Greenwood chocolates and birthday box from my dad, almost too pretty to eat (almost!)
The Eiffel Tower card was from Albert, you can't see, but under the tree are two little figures holding hands, it was such a perfect card, brought a tear to my eye! Very special, one to keep and frame.
My parents had gone to a vintage car show the weekend before my birthday and found this old cast iron street sign, I'm not sure if its a real old one or a newer sign, but it weighs a tonne! Again, a very special and thoughtful present, I got all teary!
Loved these goodies from Hope and Greenwood (my favourite shop to visit for a sweet treat!)
Albert bought me this Vintage Love perfume which I am in LOVE with, it smells very similar to Sarah Jessica Parkers Lovely, but its got a nicer bottle and is so much cheaper. I love it, its from M&S if you were wondering. Just look at the packaging....pretty!
There was a bit of a theme with my clothes gifts...
They were all patterned, I have a real thing for animal patterns at the moment, and loved these!
The two on the left are skirts, and the two on the right are tops, again from M&S.
I am rather in love with them, especially the seahorse one, my favourite!
Albert bought me this notebook, we thought it would be perfect for sticking in our photos and adding notes and tickets from our trip, so we spent the weekend playing around with it, and I am really pleased with it, hopefully it will be something nice to look back on.
Stuck some of my instagram prints in too, just need to add some writing now and fill it with memories
So, another birthday over and another year older!
