  8. My best birthday present ever? hmmm thats quite a hard one. Its probably the Mickey and Minnie Mouse ornament my husband bought me. He's not usually very good at buying gifts, I always end up writing him a list but this gift he bought totally on his own. its Disney Traditions, Mickey giving a heart to Minnie, holding flowers behind his back. So cute. It means alot that my husband chose it himself.

  10. My favourite birthday present... hmmm... would definitely have to be the trip to Vegas. I thought I couldn't go as I couldn't afford it, and my parents surprised me by paying for the remainder of the trip! It was incredible and the whole time I was there, I was thinking of them and how lucky I was to be there. Happy birthday to you! x

  18. I think my favourite birthday present would have to be my glasses, I broke my previous pair a couple of days before my birthday so my boyfriend bought me the most gorgeous pair of Missoni glasses to replace my old ones :) It was such a thoughtful present and I still use them two years on...
    Happy birthday to you AND your blog x

  20. Mine was leaving school! On my 16th it was our last day of school, It meant we finished really early and I got the chance to spend most of the day at the sea side with my best friends rather than studying for what seemed like endless exams!

  24. My favourite ever birthday present was my first car, for my 17th. It was an *ancient* Renault Clio, white (natch) and I named her Marge. She croaked along for about two years before going to the great scrapyard in the sky and I have many happy memories of zooming around deepest, darket Essex listening to Destiny's Child like the super cool kid I was :)

    Happy 2nd Birthday Blog! And Happy Birthday to you, too.

  26. Happy birthday to you and your blog! My favourite birthday gift to date was the treasure hunt the girls in my year at school did for my on my 14th birthday. It must have took them ages to make and I can still remember the creativity that went into it - and best of all the hunt lead me right to the presents from my family and also from them, my friends :) x

  43. I hope you had an awesome birthday! This is going to sound terribly pathetic, but for my fifth birthday I had a fancy dress party and got a Captain Scarlet costume on the day to wear for it. I remember not wanting to take that costume off for weeks and weeks, most girls love fairy princess costumes, I wanted to be indestructible and kill the mysterons! I don't think I have ever been so excited about a birthday present since, certainly not enough that it stuck in my mind. Ah for the days where presents aren't money to pay for every day things!! :) xo

  44. I love the gifts I get from my nan. She always buys me the expensive perfume that I can't afford. This year it was Stella by Stella McCartney, last year was Coco Mademoiselle, and the year before was YSL Elle Intense. I know it's a little shallow, but I just love perfume! Hope you had a brilliant time in New York! x

  59. I am going to be honest. I can't exactly remember back to elementary/maybe middle school when I actually received presents for my birthday. Ever since I can remember I have only received money for my birthday. My birthday last year I was in training for the military and freedom was very limited. I had gone months without having my favorite drink from starbucks and when I finally got to the other base where we could have some free time there was a starbucks there. So for my birthday my battle buddy gave me a starbucks gift card. I didnt ask for it he just was great listener and remembered when I told him that that is what I wanted the most!

  60. The best birthday present I got was my first car, a little silver Micra who I christened Bez. He's still going strong as ever now!

    ReplyDelete
  61. My favourite birthday present was when my boyfriend got me my laptop. The computer at home was really slow and he knew it annoyed me and I was overwhelmed that he had spent so much money on a laptop for me. He knew it was something I would really get some use out of. I actually cried when I opened it lol!

    ReplyDelete
  62. My best birthday present was a trip to Paris with my husband quite a few years ago. Hoping we can go back again this year now that we're no longer poor impoverished students :)

    I follow via GFC as NailNewbie, and it's actually my 30th birthday tomorrow! But my favourite ever birthday present was a Jewellery box I got from my Granddad for my 18th. It's red leather and probably the most grown up thing I own. Even though most of my jewellery doesn't fit in it I'll never change it :)
