It’s May and officially my birthday month. Yippee!!!
Every birthday and Christmas my family and friends ask the inevitable question “What do you want?” and usually I say I don’t know, promise to get back to them and then completely forget.
This year I decided to be different… I started this post at the end of February so I would know exactly what I wanted for my birthday this year.
Lots of bonbon balloons
Okay… I’ll settle for just one balloon. Maybe clear with rainbow confetti in the middle. Or green. That is my favourite colour. Did I mention that I LOVE balloons. I would be so happy to see a room filled with these (maybe after the lottery win!)
During the January sales I was hunting for a new bag and found a lovely one in Accessorize with 50%. It wasn’t my perfect bag, but that’s okay, because usually what I think of in my head doesn’t exist in real life shops. Except on this occassion it does. This is the bag I imagined in my head and it’s only £39. If no one else buys it for me I’m buying it for myself!
I have been a Marian Keyes fan for a long long time and it was so sad to hear about her struggle with depression over the past couple of years (having been there and back myself in the past) but every cloud has a silver lining and this book looks amazing! If I don’t get it for my birthday I will buy it anyway and drift off into baking bliss!
If I’m going to be baking cakes I want to do it in style (well kind of!) By the time I’ve finished baking a cake I’m usually covered from head to toe in one ingredient or another, and I keep meaning to buy myself an apron. But I’ve not found anything I’ve loved until now… and it’s only £10.99 from Forbidden Planet.
I love these so much, they’re $25 and have a pair of shoes they would look amazing with. I would have them by now if it wasn’t for that pesky shipping cost ($41!!!) If there was some fairy godmother who could fly over to the states and bring them back without charge I would be the happiest girl alive!
Matilda is my favourite book in the world. And I so would like to see the musical as everyone is saying the most wonderful things about it. Also I haven’t been to London in an absolute age so it would be the perfect excuse to see all my lovely friends down there who might be thinking I’ve dropped off the face of the earth. Unfortunately as we’re a little bit skint at the moment owing to me upping sticks and starting my own business I might have to wait a bit longer for this birthday wish…
