As well as my birthday night out, I was also lucky enough to receive some lovely gifts. My Jules brogues, as previously mentioned, from OH and thus my wardrobe rejuvenation has begun. It's very exciting.
I also received lots of smaller gifts; two new lipsticks (one burgundy, one hot pink - a new colour to me), plus a few smellies not pictured,
some super cute washi tapes from Paperchase (there was just enough room on the mug holder for these!),
obligatory chocolates, but only Maltesers, as they're a touch less calorific,
and some much needed sustenance in the form of a bottle of gin. My favourite tipple.
In the following few days, a couple of books on minimalism were also delivered from Amazon. Ordered by OH for my birthday, but requested by me. I'm looking forward to reading them at some point in the future and hoping they'll help me to let go of more stuff that we no longer need.
All in all, I had a super birthday and I can't forget the lovely cake, complete with a reminder of my age, which I'm trying hard to forget.
Not much of it left now though! Well, none in fact.
