It's my birthday in a couple of weeks. I've always been a big birthday person, celebrating with multiple events and as much fuss as possible. For my 30th Birthday, I took a cruise around the South Pacific with my Wookie and two good friends, then went to New Zealand for a few days, and came home and had a two day festival ("Emfest"), which concluded in a 3rd Birthday party (much more fun than a 30th), complete with a balloon making wizard, face painting and an icecream cake.
My 31st was quite different. I was 38 weeks pregnant, hot, bothered and grumpy. I had a nice lunch with my close family and one friend, and cried when my Mum bought me a nursing bra as a gift. (Ah, pregnancy hormones, I don't miss you one bit).
So as my 32nd Birthday fast approaches, I find myself far more focused on the Munchkin's 1st Birthday. I just don't really care that my Birthday is coming up. Is that called being a parent? Getting more mature? Who knows. Whatever it is, I decided that today's wish list would be all about me. Things that I would buy myself, if the funds allowed, as a Birthday gift.
I own far too many handbags, this can not be denied. Still, how awesome is this? Made with a vintage scarf. By missmarmaladeuk. She makes amazing hobo tote bags too. I love her whole shop.
A bangle made with vintage atlases? Yes please! It's kooky. It's awesome. It's from soitsgray.
One thing I have more of than handbags, is earrings. But these rocket earrings by wingbysea are just too lovely to ignore. I could so wear them with that handbag ......
Lastly, but definitely not least, is Klee's Garden. Ive had my eye on this for quite a while, and I adore it - the colours - the style - the shape. Made by the lovely Natalia at realisationcreations.
