What I got for my Birthday

On the 15th of October I turned 22. So my Chapter 22 has now really begun! I had a great day celebrated with some family and a week later did it all over again with a couple of friends. The only thing I didn’t like about my Birthday this year was the weather. We had some sort of heatwave and it was like 23 degrees outside. Crazy right? I don’t think I’ve had a Birthday with those kinds of temperatures. To be quite honest, I much rather prefer a nice autumnal day, but that didn’t happen. Luckily, now that I’m writing this blogpost the temperatures have dropped a bit and it’s more like autumn now. Anyways, I still had a great day, with nice people, cake, lots of food and ofcourse also some nice presents.

First of all I got this super cute lightbulb thing with a Christmas tree and stringlights inside. How cool is this?! I’ve had to contain myself and put this away in a closet, but I can’t wait to get it out. I’ve already got a bag full of new Christmas stuff that I bought. I know it’s still October, but I just really love Christmas, hence I got this Christmassy present.

I got some super nice jewellery. A beautiful silver ring, which is actually a ‘Zeeuws knopje’. For the Non-Dutchies this is something from a region in Holland. I don’t know how to explain, because I didn’t even know what it was when I picked it. I was just browsing around at the jeweller and my eye fell on this ring.

I also got a pair of earrings. I really like these. I’ve got a couple of earrings, but most of the ones that I’ve got are really tiny, or medium sized. Now I’ve got a nice big pair of hoops. Well not that big, but I don’t think I would like anything bigger than this.

Then I got a gold coin necklace. I had this on my wishlist and I’m so happy with it. It is a choker necklace and it pairs quite nicely with my Anna Saccone Zodiac sign necklace. It’s really simple, but I love it.

Books! I can now add two nice harcovers to my collection. I got This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab and Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. Both are quite mysterious books I believe so I’m excited to get to reading these. Eliza and her Monsters also has some lovely illustrations in the book. I hope that will give something extra to the story. We’ll see.

You can never have enough notebooks right? Well I got two new ones. A 3 year diary and a to-do list notepad. I think these two are really cute. And they’re soft pink, the colour I’ve been obsessed with lately as you all know by now (I mean, look at this blog…) I’ve never been good at keeping a diary, but I’m going to try. One line a day should be possible right?

Last but certainly not least is this concert DVD by John Mayer. I love watching concert DVD’s and I heart great things about this particular show from John Mayer. I have no doubt it will be great, since I’ve been to one of his concerts myself earlier this year, which was amazing.

And that’s all I got for my Birthday. I’m super grateful for everything that I got. Like I said, I had a great Birthday. I can’t believe I’m already 22, I’m getting old…

    You’ve got some great presents. Those earrings are very beautiful and the ring is also really pretty. I loved Eliza and Her Monsters, it is one of my favorite books! I also enjoyed This Savage Song, it is such a mysterious and interesting story!
