I am one of those people who just LOVES my birthday. I am not loving the getting older aspect, but a day that includes presents and cakes can’t get much better.
This year I was REALLY SPOILED! I spend my actual birthday day at Electric Picnic festival where I was treated like a princess by my pals with a chocolate crepes and coffee first thing in the morning, saba for lunch, a trip to the prosecco bar and a countless amount of beers, bacardis and vodkas…. it was a festival so no judgement 😉 . My sister’s friend Clarissa even painted my face leopard print, which I was ecstatic with. 🙂 I posted some picture and my outfits from Electric Picnic here.
I celebrated my birthday with my family and Conor on the Thursday before with cake, and Conor treated me to macaroons for me to take down to the festival with, I was snacking like a princess.
Now for the GIFTS… who doesn’t love presents???
Conor has been listening to me go on about these gold and blue Ray Ban aviators since I borrow my friend Greta’s pair in New York, and I dropped several not so subtle hints running up to my birthday, including a birthday wish list post! To be fair he had me totally convinced I was not getting them from him, so I was really surprised when I got them last week. I know it’s September and the weather is only getting duller from here, but I couldn’t care less, I will be seen around Dublin rocking these blue sunnies on the rainiest days! I am so happy 🙂 THANK YOU CONOR xxxx
My sister Ria picked me up this gorgeous light knit heather grey jumper from Hollister. It is super soft and really light which makes it perfect for layering in Autumn. I only really like light grey on me, as I find charcoal a little dulling on me, so this shade is perfect! It is a loose fit and slightly cropped and just really comfy to wear. THANK YOU RIA xxxx
Unfortunately my tiny kitten (who isn’t that tiny anymore) pulled the jumper just above the pocket on the second time I wore it, you can see a little mark in the picture. But I can’t stay mad at him, he really just has the cutest face!
Mum and Dad always give me PJs for my birthday and Christmas, PJs are just the perfect gift, especially when they are fleecy and really snug. This is just a small token as I was allowed to pick my own gift, which you may recognise from my Birthday Wishlist. I just had to get this fabulous vintage look faux fur jacket from ASOS which arrived last week. It is beautifully soft, has pockets, a nice big collar and fastens up the entire way. I am actually looking forward for the chilly weather now so I can don my beautiful fur jacket.
I was a little cheeky I added this gorgeous rope statement necklace from New Look in my ASOS basket while buying the jacket. It was on sale so mum didn’t mind at all.
Thanks MUM & DAD (even though I know you have no idea how to access my blog, let alone read it) ha xxxx
Conor’s parents were so generous and gifted me a Zara voucher, as his mum knows it is one of my favourite shops! I have yet to actually spend it, but I have had a browse in store and there are so many things I want. I am leaning towards a leather jacket I blogged about earlier in the week, see it here.
My sister Tara was away in the US for my birthday so I got an extra special souvenir/ birthday gift 🙂
Firstly my sister knows I love a good peplum, so this black peplum tee will get a lot of wear. She also picked me up this cute blush pink A-line skirt, which is weird because I was just browsing around online for something just like this. Keep an eye out for a future fashion post when I wear both of these pieces. 🙂
Next she treated me to the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade in medium brown, I have been wanting to try this for so long and it has changed my eyebrows! As some of you know I have very thin and light eyebrows so I need a good product to fill them out a little, and this stuff is magic! SHOP HERE (post coming soon)
I am a big fan of Urban Decay cosmetics, and my sister was recommended their eye primer from a friend who says it is fantastic! I have to agree, I have only used it a couple of times but it is amazing! SHOP HERE
Tara also treated me to a hand harness! How cute is this piece, looping from my finger to wrist. SHOP HERE
If that wasn’t enough I also got a cute set of Victoria’s Secret underwear and their Love is Heavenly scent 🙂
THANK YOU SO MUCH TARA, spoiled is an understatement xxxx
I also know one of my friends got me a MAC lipstick in Hue, one of my favourite shades, although I wont get it until shes back from her trip from France, but she did snapchat me a pick of it 🙂 Thanks Siobhan, can’t wait to wear it.
UPDATE! I saw Siobhan last night and she gave me my lipstick along with Macaroons that she picked up in France and the cutests personalised birthday card 🙂 Thank you Siobhan xxxx
Thank you to everyone for all of the lovely birthday wishes.
