Birthday Gifts & Haul

Birthday Gifts & Haul
Hi guys 🙂 I hope that people don’t think I’m showing off by doing this post, because believe me, I’m not. I just wanted to share with you my birthday gifts and a few of the things that I bought with my vouchers. You may recognise a few items from my birthday wishlist.

JL Mini Hot pink John Lewis sewing machine

How cute is this sewing machine? I had this on my wishlist and yay, the hint was picked up on! I now need to think of something to sew to test it out. I’m considering sanding down my old wooden chair in my bedroom and painting it white, I may use this machine to make a nice cushion to go on it. When I get my butt into gear.

These smell amazing! I am once again slacking on the bath front and taking to lazy showers, these may tempt me to get back in the tub!

The Room book by Emma Donoghue

Spencer’s mam read this book from the library a while ago, she recommended it to me back then and I promptly forgot. She saw it in a shop and thought it would be a nice extra gift for me, I can’t wait to have a read of it.

The Body Shop chocolate pamper gift set

Hello chocolate pamper times 🙂

Boux Avenue gifts wrapped in box with petals

Gorgeous PJs and plaque from Boux Avenue, how amazing is the gift wrapping? These are a little long for me so I may trial my sewing machine on them!

pink and black lace Boux avenue underwear set

I bought this for myself whilst shopping in Cardiff for my birthday. Again, its from Boux Avenue. I got measured there and couldn’t resist this after trying it on.

white gold diamond engagement ring

We bought my replacement Engagement ring as my original broke, this wasn’t a birthday present but it was bought on my birthday hence being included here.

pandora heart thumb ring

This is for my thumb, unfortunately its a little too big so I will have to exchange it. Hopefully they’ll have it in in my size.

    Some lovely items there – I adore the sewing machine! My mum has an old fashioned Singer sewing machine that I'm completely in love with. Room is also on my reading list – in fact it is currently sitting on my bedside table waiting to be read! xx

      The sewing machine is lovely, I figure that if I don't ever use it at least it looks good!
      Room sounds great, as soon as I finish my current book I'll dive into that! x

      I do mean to use it, but I figure that if my lazy butt doesn't get around to use at least it looks good and therefore serves a purpose ha! x

    I have definite gift envy over some of these beauts! That scarf is amazing, and the chocolate pamper set looks insanely good! Also love that little Primark blouse, so cute!
    Happy belated Birthday!
