I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22…actually I think I am just feeling old! Clearly 22 is not old, it’s just that I feel (and look) about 17, but suddenly I am a graduate and a proper adult! My birthday was on Friday and I had a lovely day with family, mostly chatting and eating. I was also lucky enough to receive some beautiful gifts so I thought I would share them with you. The one thing I have left out of this post is a special gift which I chose from my parents that I am going to write a separate post about. Hint: it’s something I need to style up.
The first thing I opened was this beautiful jewellery stand from Oliver Bonas that has been on my wishlist for a very long time. It’s gold, marble and a minimal style, meaning it is right up my street. I love how it looks next to my Roberts Radio which also picks up the gold, and I have already hung some of my new and favourite jewellery on it.
Unfortunately this seems to have sold out online, however, a similar style can be found here.
As you may know from previous post or my Instagram I have recently been on a family holiday to Naxos and Paros. We wondered around a lot of beautiful shops and I loved all of the “evil eye” pieces that despite their legend have become a trend, particularly on jewellery. This is a beautiful little bracelet that my brother picked up for me, that happens to go really well with my gold watch shown below.
I love The Body Shop products and this hand cream is divine. It smells lovely and isn’t at all sticky so will be perfect when the weather gets a bit colder and I am reaching for my hand cream more and more often.
Some beautiful faux pearls from my auntie. I love the irregular shape of the pearls and think these will go with so many outfits.
Before I went to university I couldn’t boil an egg! These days I love cooking and trying out new recipes and this Rustic cookbook looks right up my street. Also, it’s going to look beautiful on display in a kitchen!
Some more jewellery from our holiday! I spotted these in a beautiful little shop in a village in the mountains of Naxos. I like how they are a bit of a statement earring, but can still be described as delicate, and selfishly because I found them on holiday it is very unlikely anyone else will have them!
I hope that you have enjoyed having a little preview at what I got for my birthday this year. Speak soon, xx
