What I Got For My Birthday | 2019

Hello my lovelies! I have been asked by some of my readers to share this post, so I would like to make clear that in no way shape or form am I trying to 'show off' about what I received for my birthday.

On the 31st of July this year, I turned thirty-one years old, and old is an understatement because I feel ancient - especially since I did the #FaceApp version of myself, wow did I look horrible! Someone should have given me a voucher for a facelift for my birthday!

| From My Husband | My husband took me away to Chester and paid for us to stay an extra night. He also got me a POP Vinyl Figure I have been wanting (Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop), and two DVD's I have been wanting to own for ages - Bring It On and The Greatest Showman and of course he got me a card, and a card from our little princess Daisy which was super cute.

| From My Parents | My parents always give me money for my birthday as I prefer that. I'm not going to state how much money as it's rather personal, they also, of course, gave me such a pretty card.

| From My Brother | My brother was such a sweetheart and bought me the most gorgeous pair of Vivienne Westwood silver earrings that I cannot wait to wear at a special occasion, they really are stunning.

| From My Auntie Sharon | My beautiful Auntie Sharon made me a headband and a dream catcher which is now up in our living room so if you follow me on Instagram expect to see it a lot. She also gave me a stunning that was out of her late mum's (my Auntie Norma's) collection of cards, it is a picture of nature and is so pretty.

| From My Uncle Sean and Auntie Bernie | My Dad's twin brother and his wife gave me such a pretty glittered card with some money in.

| From My Bestie Colin | My bestie got me such a fun card with a little quote on it as he knows I love quotes and a POP Vinyl Figure of Goose from the Captin Marvel movies and comics.

| From My Friends: Lozzie and Dave | My Loz and Dave paid for the sweetest gift for me, they paid to have a star named after my Nan - Valerie Pamla Conlon. They got Phil and me a star named after our daughter when we sadly lost her so knowing that we have two stars in the sky together means so much.

| From My Friends: Keri and Ray | These two amazing people gave me something for my birthday that I have been wanting for years and I can't thank them enough for it! They completely fixed and cleared a computer for me and installed The Sims 2 with all of the extension packs on it. This honestly is in my top three of best ever presents received from someone for my birthday.

| From My Brothers Girlfriend | My brother's girlfriend is such a doll and gave me the most amazing smelling diffuser and body wash, both from The White Company. I've already put the diffuser in our living room on the coffee table and it means our whole downstairs smell incredible.

I also celebrated my birthday on the Sunday before by having drinks at home with some of my favourite people so if you are one of the people that came along, thank you so much - it meant the world to me.

Again, I'm not trying to "show off" or "brag" about what I received for my birthday and I'm very thankful that these people took the time to get me cards, presents or give me money - it really means a lot and I know how grateful that I am. Wishing you all so much love,

With love, Alisha Valerie. x
