I really am such a lucky girl to have such wonderful friends and family. I was made to feel so so special the whole day of my birthday, which included receiving some wonderful presents. One thing I'm trying to do this year is read more which is why when anyone asked my what I wanted for my birthday I said books! Here's a few of the ones I was gifted by the lovely people in my life for my birthday.
I've wanted Orla Kiely, Pattern for as long as it's been released. My friend Lisa got me the mini version which I didn't even know existed. It's so much easier to hold than the original larger version. I love this, it's great to take a look at when you're in need of some inspiration, or if you just want to look at something pretty!
Lisa also got me this Paperblanks Charlotte Bronte Note Book which is actually funny because Jane Eyre is one of my favourite stories and I actually bought the book a few years ago and haven't read it yet so I will definitely be adding it to my list to read as soon as possible. I love stationary, I would seriously browse a stationary shop longer than any clothing shop. I adore this notebook, it is so gorgeous it's almost a shame to write in it!
Donnacha got me Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America by Leslie Knope as one of my presents.
If you don't watch Parks and Recreation then you won't understand what this is (it's written by a fictional character). So instead of telling you about it I will urge you to watch Parks and Rec right now and then buy this book because it's amazing!
I've mentioned before my recent enough discovery of the Nancy Comic Strip. Donnacha also got me this Nancy is Happy Collection. It is so cute and funny, I am obsessed with Nancy, I can't believe how funny it is after 70 years!
