A week tomorrow is my birthday, a fact I keep forgetting since I have been so mega busy at work as of recent. I already know what I will be receiving from my parents in the way of gifts so I thought I would do a little blog about it! If you hadn't guessed from the post title, I will be 23. It's not really a milestone birthday but I do enjoy getting older! I feel like I am the only one who revels in being a year older!?
Gift number 1: The ever so lovely - wanted it for LIKE ever - Zatchel satchel in Cream
|Zatchels, £130 in total with shoulder strap and handle|
For Zatchels birthday they offered 50% off all orders, as I had wanted this exact satchel with a burning desire for well over a year, I decided it was time. I could never justify the purchase even after I said to myself I would get it with my first pay check of my new job (which was almost a year ago now) I never did! Well, fear not, it is (almost) within my grasp now, and luckily the £130 turned into a delightful £65, nice that!
Gift number 2: The very cool - will look awesome when I do a twirl in it - Skirt from Miss Selfridge
|Miss Selfridge, £28|
A vertically wide striped skirt has been lurking around my wishlist for some months now, when I found the absolute perfect one in Miss Selfridge I went all 'grabby hands' on it. It was £28, but you guys know I love a bargain, and I bought it when they were doing a deal on in Debenhams off the concessions, it came to about £22 which was money well spent in my opinion. High waisted skirts, as you will most likely know, are my all time favourite things to wear and I can't wait for the summer when I can go all bare legs. Although on this subject my Mum said "you're not going to get your legs out are you?! YOUR legs?! You're going to fake tan them, right?" errr thanks Mum, well aware how pale I am and there is nout wrong with that!
Any of you lovely bloggers got your birthday coming up? I love the fact I will be getting some pieces which I really wanted but wouldn't splurge on myself!
