So at the end of this month will be a very important date, namely, my birthday. Yup, it happens every year without fail and signifies my ever impending old age... I say this because this year I will be turning Twenty Seven. Nooo, I hear you cry, surely not, not with those youthful looks, you can’t possibly be that old (or maybe that’s what I want to hear... ), but yes, this year I will be that legendary age of twenty seven. Admittedly, I personally think that twenty seven does sound better than twenty six, but at this age, there is no getting away from it, I am now into my late twenties.
After writing that I just had to sit back a moment and really take that in. Wow, it’s ridiculous how fast time goes, and it just seems bizarre just how quickly everything has come round.
Twenty seven used to seem so old when I was younger, but I don’t feel that much different to when I was twenty. By this age I expected to be either engaged or married, have a house, and be settled down in my ideal job. I’ve reached some of those goals, but I do hate my job, and I’m definitely not married as I think I would have remembered it happening, but this is out of choice, I don’t fancy being a ‘mrs’ yet, it’s like giving in to being a grown up.
So anyway, with my birthday coming up, I figured I would put together a little wishlist of birthday presents. If some lovely person chooses to buy me some of these things then I would be most grateful... not that I’m hinting of course...
So here goes, I may be a little bit dreaming on some of these!
A Barbour coat thank you please
Anyone of these:
Barbour Vintage Durham Jacket (£219.95) / Barbour Kelsall Waxed Jacket (£249.95) / Barbour Hawkstone Waxed Parka Jacket (£299.95) / Barbour Quilted Utility Waxed Jacket (£249.95) / Barbour Vintage Troop Waxed Parka Jacket (£329.95)
All available on Barbour by Mail
Now, I know these jackets are a tad pricey and lets be fair, I won't be buying one unless by some miracle one is given to me or I come into a considerable sum of money, but it's good to dream. If it's not one of these then maybe one of the cheaper alternatives that look just as good (check out Joules), or possibly just a parker, I'm not that fussy!
Nike High Tops!
Light Grey Nike Blazer Suede Vintage Trainers (£70.00) / Red Nike Blazer Mid Suede Trainers (£70.00)
Available from Schuh
I mean technically I already have a leather pair, but they are very old now and looking more grey than white, so it's ok to want another pair. I also don't mind what colour really, either of these will do, just in case your thinking which colour should I buy her... ;)
River Island Belted Denim Shorts
Light Wash Kiss Belted Denim Shorts (£30.00)
Available at River Island
So I love the old school high waist Levi shorts, but it appears they are either hard to come by or cost quite a lot for what they are, but then I spied these little bad boys and decided that these are a damn good alternative!
Casio Mini Digital Watch (£35.00) / Casio AQ-230GA-9DMQYES Digital Bracelet Watch (£47.00) / Casio A168WG-9EF Gold Plated Digital Watch (£45.00) / Casio F11-4A2EF Digital Orange Watch (£20.00)
All available at Asos
Either one will do ta very much! I will accept the last one in a variety of colours, just in case your wondering...
Colourblock Small Rucksack (£37.00) / Multi Braid Rucksack (£37.00)
Available from Asos
Ok, so really I want a leather one, but it appears it is very difficult to find a nice affordable backpack, but I do think these two are a very good compromise. If you know where to get a good proper leather backpack then let me know!
Crosley Tan Keepsake Turntable UK Plug (£160.00)
Available at Urban Outfitters
So I was browsing Urban Outfitters and I came across these little beauties. To cut a short story even shorter, I want one! Please someone buy me one, and also some vinyl records to go with it please. It would look very nice in my house. Thanks!
