Birthday Celebrations: The Gifts
So now you all know that last week I celebrated my birthday. It was actually my birthday last Monday, but I always escape to London on my birthday so I held my party two days earlier. The first gift (my boyfriend’s!) was a spectacular framed print of a hand drawn map of London by Jenni Sparks. I’ll supply a picture when it’s up against the wall. We’ve decided on hanging it near the kitchen open space to give it the attention it deserves. In the afternoon I had lots of friends over for cake, cupcakes & pancakes. Needless to say I was quite emotional to have the majority of them over, enjoying a sweet afternoon in my apartment. Afterwards some of us went to Wim Ballieu’s pop up meatball restaurant to enjoy a proper dinner & it was just divine! Really, the very best thing in the world is spending time with your friends, your partner & family.
I was so surprised to receive all of these gifts! My friends know me so well & are so attentive. I am very thankful for all these amazing presents & can’t wait to use/view/wear all of them. Take a look:
Modern Family Season One, MAC eyeshadows, Owl necklace, Jeroen Meus’ Cooking Book, Guerlain Pucci Perles Meteorites, Essentiel Nail Polish, Kiehl’s gift certificates.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks, Armani Face Palette, Benefit’s ‘Finding Mr. Bright’ set, Planet Parfum gift certificate & Starbucks gift certificate.
