My Amazing Anniversary Presents:

21.9.13


If you read my 25 Facts About Me post (which can be found here) then you'll already know that on the 20th of September my boyfriend and I celebrated our first anniversary together and it's safe to say I was spoilt rotten. I wanted to show you all of the lovely things he got for me (which if you follow me on instagram you'll already have seen) I thought you might want a quick run through of our day together.

As it was a Friday I was at college until about three in the afternoon but as I walked out of college there he was waiting for me. We walked together to his Dad's house where I found the beautiful basket full of gorgeous presents waiting for me on the living room table, whilst the dining room table was all set out for my favourite dinner ever, fajitas. After dinner he put on Les Mis for me which was one of my presents (which considering he's a stereotypical boy with a love for rugby not musical's was so sweet) and to tell you the truth I fell asleep cuddled up under the duvet on the sofa. When the film had finished we set up Grand Theft Auto V - which was one of my presents to him- and played it until bed. Well I say we played it was more he played and I shouted at the screen next to him, haha.


Anyway, on to the presents themselves, the first present was this absolutely gorgeous necklace which even though it was only yesterday I got it I already feel naked without!
It's from a brand called elements, and is a beautiful little silver hummingbird with a little dangling heart coming off his nose.

The second thing I pulled out the basket was an Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the colour Native, which I have to say as soon as I put on I fell in love with and will be getting an awful lot of use out of!


I'm thinking of giving it a post of it's own and reviewing it, what do you think?

After this came the Lush Mint Julips Lip scrub, I opened it straight away to try out. This one had a special meaning because I've been wanting to get myself a new lip scrub for absolutely ages, which Myles knows.
It tastes and smells exactly like the mint goo that comes in After Eight mints, which I love. It does an amazing job of softening and smoothing up my lips too.

The scarf is lovely. I can tell already I'm going to be wearing it non stop, not only is it a beautiful print but its also light but not floaty and just the right length for my tiny body, resting just at my hips when wrapped around my neck once, meaning I'll be able to get use out of it all year round. The print is lots of poppies among other flowers with bright watercolour butterflies all over it.

Myles also got me Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Live Concert edition on DVD, which he has told me is all thanks to my friend Olivia as it was her idea. Since I've had Les Mis songs stuck in my head ever since I borrowed the film months ago, I agree with her choice, haha.

Next came the Reese's Cups which I love, love, love and are being eaten as I type so certainly won't last very long.

And last but not least was the beautiful straw basket it all came in. I've kept the lovely box he gave me my Christmas presents in, which is now the home of my nail varnish collection, so he knew I'd find a use for it.

I want to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thankyou to Myles not only for the amazing presents and a lovely two days with him but also for allowing himself to be dragged round the shops with a group of my friends who helped him pick the presents out. (Also thankyou to my amazing friends for helping him too.) I'm feeling very spoilt indeed and don't feel like I deserve such beautiful things or such an amazing boyfriend.
