The gift of giving...



"No, please, don't get me a diamond... get me a really big closet." 
- Carrie Bradshaw.

A gift can be small and simple, huge or elaborate. It can cost the world, or simply use up the spare change in your wallet, 
But what I see in a gift is not its value, but its love. Its about how much thought you can see it contains. How much the gift is suited 
just for you and only you. Thats my favourite part about gift giving, finding something utterly perfect for that special someone. Gift giving and 
receiving to commemorate an occasion is something I believe is something beautiful. Its more than the physical item, it symbolises so much more

I seriously have some great friends who know me too well ;) 
Here is just a snippet of some of my fashion/beauty gifts I received for my birthday. 

Mango lip balm and green bow belt from the lovely Erin   /   Blog tee from Eden (very appropriate)   / 
General issue lace shorts from the family   /  chucks from ma boo   /   jewellery from Raffy and Giraffeee 

I left a few things out of this post, but check out my instagram to see my panda onesie and pillow pet ;)
