Following on from my What I Got for Christmas post, here is a ‘What I Got for My Birthday’ post! My birthday falls on Boxing Day (26th December) so this festive time of year is, understandably, my favourite. Similarly to Christmas, I chose my main presents from my parents and bought them during Black Friday weekend, as well as gifts from my sister and brother lol, so there weren’t too many surprises. Nonetheless, that means I absolutely love everything.
My boyfriend kindly got me these Pink Velvet Boots from Zara that I told him I absolutely loved. They are so beautiful. My brother gave me an Ohh Deer Rose Gold Marble Notebook; Ohh Deer do the most gorgeous designs for stationery. My sister got me this Sass and Belle Copper Jewellery Holder that I wanted and I can’t wait to hang it up somewhere and organise my necklaces. A cute, funny gift from my parents was the How it Works: The Cat (Ladybird for Grown-Ups) Book; one page in particular, which is about food, is so relevant to my little angel cat, Princess (the little diva).
I got some Black Micro Stud Boots from Next as my main present from my parents, along with an amazing Aldo Greenwald bag which really reminded me of something Chanel might design.
I got a The Body Shop Green Tea & Lemon Candle and Room Spray which smells really refreshing and uplifting! I also got a mini Absolut Raspberry Vodka which is kind of funny because I don’t really drink much alcohol anymore so this probably won’t get drunk for some while, when the next rare occasion I go out is!
My boyfriend chose me this book – Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller – which sounds pretty good from reading the blurb! And lastly, he got me such a cute and thoughtful gift which just made me LOL when I unwrapped them – framed pictures of my cat, Princess! I’m ashamed I didn’t have any framed pictures of her already so this was perfect. She is just uh, everything to me <3 .
I was also completely spoilt by the rest of my extended family in terms of money so I will definitely enjoy spending a bit of that on some bits that I can blog about in future 🙂 .
So that’s my gifts received for another year! It’s annoying waiting for Christmas and Birthday to come around but when December hits I know it’s a double whammy ;).
Have a happy and safe New Year whatever you’re doing.
Love Nicole xxxx
