What I got for my birthday

What I got for my birthday

img_9907So if you read my ‘turning 30’ post you know I recently celebrated my birthday.  I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the things I got from family and friends in one of those ‘what I got for my birthday’ posts. As always I was spoilt rotten, but this year I definitely noticed I got more personal ‘I get you’ presents which was so, so lovely.
I’ve been talking about my love of bees recently so I was really happy to some bee-related presents, namely these stunning earrings from Bill Skinner and a gorgeous gold honey trivet/coaster from Anthropologie.img_9912Everything I got was just so beautiful and well thought out, but the one thing that made me shed a little tear was my first Mason Pearson hairbrush. It’s something I’ve wanted since I was a little girl and I was just so blown away that my Dad remembered. I received some money/vouchers too so expect a few mini hauls soon.

I also received a stunning Nanette Lepore gold leaf phone case, a beautiful jewellery travel box from Oliver Bonas, some stationary goodies from Kikki K, a trio of Tocca mini rollerballs (I could not be happier about that!) and some skincare from Dr Hauschka- one of my favourite brands.

I really hope you liked a ‘what I got for my birthday’ post, they are one of my favourites to read/watch! I was very lucky and despite the slightly traumatic experience of turning 30 (!) it was such a lovely birthday.

    I love your earrings, although I would have to either wear them or hide them as my Daughter would love these too x

    Happy belated! Those are such lovely presents. It is nicer when to receive gifts when they are ones that people actually look like they have put a lot of thought into. Enjoy them! x
