So October is here and with it comes another birthday for me! 🎉🎈
I had a lovely time celebrating with family and friends and I received some really beautiful gifts. ❤️ Some of which I thought I’d share with you today. You never know, Christmas is just around the corner, it may even lead to some gift-spiration for you guys!
Notebooks: As an author, I can never have too many notebooks and these ones are perfect. The pack of three are great for those days when writer’s block and self doubt are threatening to visit and the other well, what more do I need to say?
Books: Books are one of my favourite presents to receive and this year was no exception. I particularly like the variety of this year’s books. A nice mix of fiction and non-fiction as well as a more detailed look at a craft I love alongside an education in a whole new skill!
Selfie Light: You can’t go wrong with a bit of quirky tech and I can’t wait to give this selfie light a try. It’s basically a clip on light and clip on lense that attach to my phone to give my pics a better look. I think this will be a great little gadget to use for my blog posts and Instagram feed!
Board Game: I do love sitting down and playing a board game. There’s just something completely nostalgic and cosy about it. So when I unwrapped a Sherlock Holmes board game I was instantly in love. It looks to be a take on the classic game Cluedo, one of my all time faves. ❤️
Jewellery: I love jewellery and the only thing better than just jewellery is bookish jewellery. 😍 How cute are these little book necklaces? The first is a book with real tiny pages that, if I’m feeling daring enough, I could actually write in! The second is such a special gift.❤️ My friend got me my very own book cover on a necklace! I nearly cried receiving this. Such a lovey gift, it’ll be the perfect accessory for my future events.
Wool: But not just any old wool, oh no, my parents treated me to a trip to the TOFT HQ and enough yarn to make a mini me! (More on that at a later date 😉) For those of you who don’t know, TOFT is a brand of luxury British yarn who also run an alpaca farm! 😍 I love visiting TOFT; having a mooch around the shop, relaxing with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake and then taking a walk around the grounds to see the alpacas. I have a very exciting blog post in the pipeline about TOFT by the way, so stay tuned for that!
Also, as those of you who follow me on Facebook will already know, I went to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child last week in London. ❤️ This was also a birthday present from my lovely boyfriend. But after having such an amazingly magical weekend, I think I want to save that experience for a blog post of it’s very own. ⚡️
Thank you again for all the love. ❤️
