This post is slightly overdue as it was my birthday over a week ago now but better late than never ey! I just thought I'd share some of the wonderful presents I was lucky enough to receive from my lovely friends and family. Rather than my parents buying me something I would end up taking back, I was allowed to choose a handbag and some other little bits and bobs. I ended up picking the Givenchy Antigona as I love the simplistic style, it will always be a classic item within my wardrobe and the nude shade means I will get lots of use out of it. I also picked these glitter Miu Miu sunglasses which I've had my eyes on for ages. I tend to only really suit cat eye shaped sunnies as I have quite a round face shape and the glitter frames look really lovely glistening in the sunshine.
The headphones seem like a pretty good investment as I'm forever losing my Apple ones and needed some that were more sturdy. We all know how much I love rose gold so these were right up my street. My lovely boyfriend and friends bought me some Marc by Marc Jacobs jewellery which I've wanted for a while now. My favourite piece has to be the nude leather wrap around bracelet with the rose gold chain. I've been wearing it everyday since, it's quite a simple and casual piece so tends to go with everything I wear.

I've been convincing myself that I'm going to start running around Clapham Common on the weekend so purchased these amazing Nike trainers to tempt me into it. However, so far I have only worn them to ride a camel! I also bought these chunky flatform style sandals which I took to Marrakech with me for the nights. I'm not very good in big heels and tend to moan/ fall over a lot so these are definitely more alcohol friendly. I intended to get some use out of these Topshop studded sandals too but I forgot to bring plasters and I was scared they were rub so didn't bother. Looks like they will be staying cosy in my wardrobe till the Summer holidays approach, hurry up!

  5. Cute presents! Really jealous of the Nikes but I'm not a runner or an exercise type person anyway. Trying to convince myself that if I had beautiful shoes I would be xxx
