Birthday Round Up

Well folks, its official I am now in my late twenties :( I think I am now at the stage where you stop counting the years as they go by!

Anyway I had a lovely Birthday, I was greeted by this lovely display of presents from Tom.

I love Thomas's gift wrapping - he always puts so much effort into it! I, on the other hand, am hopeless at wrapping. Unless its square, then its not too bad.

So what was inside these wonderful wrapped parcels? Tom originally got me the new Mulberry Rosie Toiletry bag, which is really lovely but just too big to carry around your day to day make up. I was really touched by this gift as he had noticed my current bag was getting a bit grotty, but decided that I wouldn't get much use out of it. Plus I would be worried that it got wreaked like all my other make up bags do! As we were going through to Edinburgh we decided to pay the Mulberry shop a visit and we exchanged it for this lovely little beauty: 

I decided on this size rather that the wallet as I don't really carry that much cash on me and this finds all my cards and coins nicely, its also a nice size that will fit into most bags and not take up all the room. 

Tom also got me (spoiled I am!) a Babyliss Pro curling wand and a notebook and Pen, as he knows my love for stationary! I adore the pen, its a lovely Raspberry colour and writes like a dream! 

After all the gift unwrapping we got ready and headed to the Hotel Missoni in Edinburgh for a wee birthday lunch! The hotel was amazing, we were greeted by doormen in Missoni Kilts and the decoration was amazing. The food was delicious and amazing value for money - you can get 3 courses for £20, which I think is brilliant for a 5 star restaurant! I would love to stay in one of the rooms there. After lunch we went for a quick look in Harvey Nicks, I didn't get anything apart from Shampoo and there gorgeous cupcakes! 

Other gifts included a lovely Liz Earle set from my Mum and an ASOS voucher from my sister which I have already spent and will do a wee post on when the goods arrived. 

I will leave you with a picture of Rosie climbing out a Missoni basket! 



  1. Happy Birthday! Lucky you! That wrapping paper is gorgeous, is that Kath Kidson?? xx

  2. Hi Toni,

    It was rather lovely, I managed to save it and have used it to cover a binder!
    I think it may have been, it was from John Lewis and have been informed that it was around £5 a sheet!!! Glad I reused it now!
