What I bought and received for my 25th.



I know I have been rabbiting on about my bloody 25th for what seems like an eternity. Well, 3 days. BUT this year has really been amazing for me and I have been so fortunate to share it with the people that have really made it special.

Before I get into this post, I don’t want this post to come across as ‘braggy’. I have been so fortunate with the gifts I have received and the people which have sent their love and well wishes. Many of you will know, that I have had my struggles this year, so this little positive weekend away really has made me realise all the good that’s in my life.

Whilst we were in one of my favourite cities in the world, I decided to treat myself to a few things I have been eyeing up. And I am not disappointed.

The new additions really have given my wardrobe (and spirits*Cough*Gin*cough*) a little bit of a lift, so I am so excited to share them with you.

From Me, to Me.

Primark Marie Hoodie, £10.

I have been eyeing up this cropped hoodie for a little while now. After watching Emily Canham’s, trip away with Primark to DISNEY, in fact. The aristercats is probably hands down one of my favourite Disney films. So when I saw this cute little cropped hoodie, I had to have it.

After scoping out the store I was thrilled when I finally got my hands on it! I am only 5’4, so this cropped hoodie actually hangs lower than anticipated. Sitting just above the top of my jeans in perfect for me and my style. Although tshirt should really be worn with it in these -2 temperatures, we are currently having. Bringing me nicely onto the lining. The fluffy, snuggly lining that makes me instantly want to fall asleep and have done with my day. YES, it is that warm and toastie.

And cute cause obvs Marie is the sassiest, little cat you ever did see!

Next Pearl Roll Neck Jumper, £35

Like the Marie Hoodie, I have been debating buying this roll neck jumper for a little while now. I don’t really know what stopped me. On this particular day I decided to finally take the plunge and treat myself to it. And I have no regrets.

The soft wool (which was initially itchy), really does keep me warm. The cute pearl detailing works so well with the subtle grey colouring really is encompases the feeling of winter. In addition the boxy cut, it would work perfectly with a faux leather skirt or jeans.

At £35 it is a little much for a jumper but I honestly don’t think its too bad when you realise I am going to live in it for the rest of winter.

Masons, Steve’s Apple Gin, £40.

Would it be one of my blogs if I didn’t mention something alcoholic?

Masons is one of my favourite gin distilleries. I was so excited to see their stall at The Christmas market I basically threw my money at the poor girl serving me!

Also, this gin tastes absolutely amazing. YES, TO APPLE GIN!

Kisses (essentially marshmellow covered in Chocolate), £5.

CHOCOLATE COVERED MARSH MELLOWS, HELLO YOU BABE. These babies were deifinatley worth the calories! And for a £1 each I would be stupid not to buy 5, right?

From friends.


Slythers, did good.

My best friend has well and truly spoiled me this year. In fact I can’t quite believe it. In addition to sorting the room out (thanks babes), she bought me something I definitely thought I would never own. A David Attenborough candle.

When I say I love David Attenborough, I mean I ADORE THE MAN! Seriously, I have a problem. When I was presented with this particular gift, I  with out any doubt say I laughed for hours (and still do for hours).

This utter babe, didn’t just stop at a candle either, she treated to a Rock and Rose Emoji Ring too. This sassy little emoji, is most definitely one of my most over used emoji’s and probably, something I need to look at when I need my sassy pants on.

Sarah, you wonderful human. You really did make my birthday, even if you are a slytherin.

The blogging babes.

I do have a few blogging girls which I speak too quite regularly, so when I went to vist one and saw the gifts our little group chat had bought, it took all my strength not to burst into tears. The gifts below were so unexpected and I can’t thank you all enough.

A stunning bunch of flower’s, two beautiful copper wine glasses and a few cheeky bottles of wine. All displayed in a mound of bubble gum pink wrapping.  Its safe to say these girls know me far to well! Thank you!

I just wanted to say another quick thank you, to everyone I has made my 25th celebrations amazing. I don’t think I can quite put into words how amazing it has been- which is a bit of a shame cause I’m a blogger.

Cheers, you babes! xxx

PS. I am sorry for not tagging gifts or the people that gave me them, this doesn’t mean I am not grateful, by any means.
