19 and blessed

I have been contemplating whether to do this post and how to compose it because a) it’s been a good five days since my birthday, b)  I don’t want to come across as materialistic. But here we are and I’m just going to write it.

Yes, my birthday was last week and it was quite an emotional one for me personally as I had to say goodbye to being 18 and hello to my last teen. I can’t believe how quickly that year has gone, it doesn’t feel five-minutes since I myself was waiting for my A-Levels to come in and to see if I made to cut for university!

I kindly received really lovely gifts from my family and friends so I thought I would just share some in this post.




This first gift I just love! The Golden Rules of Blogging, was given by a dear friend who has been so excited about reading my blog and I love her so much – if you are reading, thank you! It has loads of blogger tips, with stories from bloggers about their experiences in the community, such a great idea – I cannot wait to read more of it! DSC00636



This next one is so adorably me as I love cats, I’m a cat lady and proud. My boyfriend asked me what I wanted for my birthday and as a joke, I responded “a cat”, from then I joked that I hope he had bought me one for my birthday and ta-da! It is one that you can charge via USB and if you tap its side, it changes colour, I bloody love it – named him Simon (I don’t even know either).DSC00637DSC00640


Finally, this beautiful clutch was given to me by my Sister and Brother-in-law, I am in love! The colour is perfect and the shine bright detailing is so lovely – when I went out for my birthday I took it with me and it got a couple of marks (as expected) but they just wiped straight off! I can see myself keeping this for sepcial occasions as the light grey colour will be versatile and sophisticated with any outfit!



I feel incredibly blessed for what I have and also excited to see what 19 has in store for me! Here’s to the last teen…


Much love,
