It's My Birthday! (& Tag!)

Hello beautiful's,

Today is my birthday! Exciting times!! Thank you so much to everyone who got me a card or a present, and everyone who took the time to wish me a happy birthday - I love you all! I thought, seeing as it's my birthday I'd get around to doing The Birthday Tag for you all, so here it is..

1. When is your birthday?
My birthday is today, right now, 31st July.

2. How old are you turning?
(Or if your birthday recently passed, how old did you turn?)
I turned twenty-eight years old today. 

3. What was you’re favourite present that you’ve ever received?
I'm always thankful for every single present that I've received no matter what it is. The fact that someone has gone out and spent their time and money shopping to buy me something is amazing, and one of the best presents.

4. Are you/did you have a party this year? If so what are you doing?
I'm not having a party as I've been busy busy busy but I'm hoping to meet up with family and friends soon. 

5. How do you usually celebrate your birthday?
I love being with the people I love and care about. That just makes me so happy.

6. What was the most memorable birthday that you had?
Every birthday. My sixteen was a little crazy, my 18th was lovely and my 21st was mad. I'm hoping that I can top them all when I turn 30 years old. 

7. If you had an unlimited amount of money what would you do for your birthday?
I'd love to spend it on holiday somewhere warm and sunny. 

8. What’s your birthday wish list?
I have a "My Birthday Wishlist" blog post which you can take a look at. 

9. If you only had one birthday left, what would you do for your birthday?
Be with my friends and family, and the people I care about and love. 

10. Show a picture from your birthday, preferably an embarrassing one? 
Oh wow, haha. This is a picture of me, aged 17 I think, on my birthday after I'd gotten home from a show in the local theatre. 

11. Do you have any birthday traditions? 
I love that I get a cake every year. I wasn't aware that some people only get birthday cakes on big birthdays like "13, 16, 18, 21, 30, etc." 

12. What’s your favorite part about your birthday?
Waking up with Phil and Daisy. 

13. What's one thing that changed a lot since your last birthday?
Our house move has been the biggest thing right now. 

14. Have you ever been thrown a surprise party or have you ever thrown one for someone?
I would never like a surprise birthday party to be honest, it would scare me and make my anxiety go everywhere. I like knowing what's happening in my life. I was involved in planning my dad's 50th birthday party. 

A massive thank you to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday on any of my social media accounts, it really means a lot to me. I hope you all have a really wonderful day!

With love,
Alisha Valerie. x

  1. I love birthdays and celebrating people! Even though people say they don't like celebrating getting older, I think it makes them feel appreciated if they receive something as simple as a card. Hope you had a lovely day with some cake too!

  3. Happy Belated Birthday!
