So in just under 2 weeks it's my 21st birthday! I wasn't too excited as we hadn't sorted out a location for a party and I was getting a little nervous but as we've found somewhere now, I'm starting to feel the excited grins coming across my face every now and again!
As it's quite a big birthday, the 'big 2-1', people have been asking me what I want for it. I really hate being asked this as I get quite uncomfortable telling people things to buy me, is it just me or does it seem odd? Nevertheless, people won't let it go so I thought I'd create a little wish list so that I don't have to do the awkward convos face to face!
DISCLAIMER! (I can't believe we have to do stupid disclaimers, but there's always one sour poo that has to make a comment). I'm not asking for all of this. Heck, I'm not asking for any of it! Think of it as a theoretical 'what I'd like if someone was forced to spend money on me', if you know what I mean. Basically, this is for my Dad who asked what I wanted and I didn't know, so I've made this easy for him - I hope you appreciate it Daddy!
Believe it or not, Jack and I really enjoy a little skate every now and again, but having to lug around my huge, heavy long board is getting on my tits quite frankly! Jack has a Stereo board (same size as Penny but different make) and I'm really jealous of the ease of it. Also how lush are the colours of the one above!?
When in town the other day with my friend, we were going round smelling different perfumes, and I had a sniff of this one and fell in love. It's so sweet and lovely. Plus it's Juicy Couture, and I'm a sucker for anything Juicy!
3 - Books
Urban Outfitters has my favourite types of books ever. The weird, fun, different books they have are right up my street as I'm not a fan of reading, but I do love the feel of books. These two in particular stood out to me. I thought the Outfit A Day Fashion Journal was a brilliant idea, as it makes a fun change from the Instagram #ootd's I do (and will get me practising fashion illustrations more!). As for the F*ck I'm In My Twenties book, it's pretty much sums up how I feel about age right now (and looks really fun too).
4 - Nose Piercings
I have a standard ring in at the moment but these ones I found on Etsy are just so gorgeous. They are way too pricey for what they are in my opinion but if anyone knows where this style ring can be bought but for much cheaper then please let me know!
Very little needs to be said about this. It's my favourite conditioner ever, leaves my hair feeling amazing, and I've run out. Simples.
This one is for Jack only, please no one else buy it! He bought me a charm bracelet a little while back and every now and again he'll buy me another one to add on. I thought this simple one was so cute and would be a lovely addition.
I told you I have a thing for Juicy. I was browsing their bag collection and came across this beauty. I love the size of it, the print, the chain detail, the inside, just everything! And considering it's brand, it's amazingly priced! They've also made it much easier to shop in the UK too, as before it was really difficult having to work out customs charges and all that stuff, but they do all that for you on the site now!
8 - Sketchbooks
If you're ever in doubt of something that would make me happy, go with sketchbooks. ANY sketchbook and I'll be a happy bunny. These two from Paperchase are particular favourites of mine, the simple brown one makes for beautiful scrapbooking and the map print one fulfils my must-get-all-the-map-things thoughts.
