Turning 26.

I had a lovely birthday :) It was simple but sweet. My boyfriend made me a cup of tea in bed and brought in my cake, singing happy birthday to me...

He then gave me my presents. Amongst cat/hello kitty related items, I found a special blue box with a white ribbon...inside was this...

Heart lock pendant from Tiffany & Co. :) It is beautiful. And attached was a very sweet note :)

After Ben cooked us up a lovely breakfast, we went shopping so I could spend some birthday money. A new Topshop has opened up in town so I went in there and got these and this. I'm not sure about the latter I keep or return?

The rest of the afternoon was spent at my house, just chilling out and talking to my brother. Rob gave me an amazing cupcake book and Gin and Titonic ice cube tray!

My friend came round later with pressies. Got some lovely things - The Whoopie Pie Book, a gift voucher for, two Models Own nail polishes & a beautiful print from Lola's Room. Spoilt!

My boyfriend and I went out for dinner in the evening to our favourite Indian restaurant. The food is always so good in there. I had vegetable samosa to start, then a vegetable masala & pilau rice, mmm, seriously good. I couldn't finish it though, so got them to box it up for me to take home.

Spent some of my birthday money on one of these babies...

Cannot wait to receive it! My next big buy is going to be a DSLR camera I think, but I've got a lot of saving up to do for that so it'll be a while yet!

I've still got a few gifts to come...exciting much, haha!

Going out to 'celebrate' turning 26 tonight - just a few drinks with friends, I'm sure I'll get suitably merry!

Last of all, thank you so much for all the lovely birthday tweets on twitter! :)

Oh, and who else is seeing Harry Potter today?!
