My Birthday Wishlist

My birthday is around 3 weeks away and I thought it high time I create a birthday wish list that family reading my blog (I know who you are!) can use to get some ideas.

With everything being wedding and then baby related this year, I almost forgot it was getting nearer to my birthday when I turn 27 and the reality of becoming a mother 4 weeks later sets in!!

Here are some of the things on the top of my wish list this year to help those of you buying me gifts (haha).

The Sims 4 // Dermalogica Clear Start Kit // Yorkshire Soap Company Bath Bombs

UGG Slippers (size 5)

Ban.do Diary // Joules Waterproof Jacket // Warehouse Leather Jacket

What I got for my Birthday

Just under 2 weeks ago, I aged a whole year. Yes that’s right, I turned 26! As my fiance keeps reminding us, we are closer to 30 now than 20, nice bit of reality eh?

I thought I’d do a little birthday feature and share some of the lovely gifts I received from friends and family.

A selection of bath bombs from Yorkshire soap company, a fish in a bag soap, a happy birthday cupcake soap and a rubber duck lip balm.

An Opi nail recovery set to help me with my mission to grow my nails for my wedding.

A selection of posh soaps which smell amazing. I actually love the box they came in as well.

A gorgeous handmade vase which looks stunning on our wood dining table.

I also was spoilt and got tickets to a ballet opera from my fiance which is one of my dream things to go see, and lots of money to treat myself with. So far I haven’t spent much but do plan to treat myself to a nice dress for the ballet from John Lewis that I’ve got my eye on.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my birthday post. If you’ve had a birthday lately and done a similar post then leave me your links in the comments, would love to read them.

The Birthday Wishlist

Okay, so I think I’m having a good old Quarter-life crisis as I approach my 25th Birthday! The lovely day will happen in just under 2 weeks time, and I am completely dreading it. This is comfortably the first birthday I have ever dreaded and am going through all sorts of crazy thoughts about life and where it’s headed. To cheer myself up and after a rather lovely exchange of Tweets from Tarnya @ Sweet Allure, I decided to write a birthday wish list to try to cheer myself up. Note to family members reading this blog post, here are some gift ideas, please communicate with each other so I don’t end up with double of something. haha thanks Fam!

Everything on my wish list is under £20 and I would be happy to get anything on this list. I’m not one for choosing what I want in advance so these are just some things I’ve seen that I would love.

I hope you liked my wish list.
