Birthday Haul

...written by Sherin

Like most people out there, I love my birthday, which was at the end of last month. Every year, for as long as I can remember, we've had a huge family BBQ, where the weather is always amazing, and this year was no different. Like usual, however, there were also tense arguments about everything from food to Politics: I think, by now, our neighbours think the whole family is mad!
Anyway, here's my outfit: I know I must have broken some kind of a law because I wore the same thing that I wore to my birthday last year.

The dress is from Portobello Market, and the shoes are from Sarenza.

But enough of that: The important thing is what I got. Here are some of my favourites:
This is my new toy. It's a Fujifilm camera, and was from my brother. He actually bought it for himself, but never used it, so it's mine now!

I got this jacket from my uncle. I think it'll be perfect for this coming Winter.

My other uncle got me Hugo Boss perfume and a Cartier mirror.

My dad got me this Tiffany's bracelet. It's so delicate and pretty!

My mum got me these pair of Converses. I have a lot of Converses now, but in my eyes: you can never have too many. Converses and Vans are seriously the best shoes to buy!

 My aunts gave me a lot of River island vouchers and I going to buy these babies:

And finally, I received this lovely birthday card from Tasha at The Hot Spot. I love getting stuff in the mail from all over the world, so was very excited when this came!

I also got a lot of money: yay, so I'm due a huge shopping trip! What do you all think I should spend the money on??

You look so pretty! And that Tiffany's bracelet will go with everything.

I think you should spend it on some good old knitwear for winter...
