So, I just had my birthday. It was a lovely day, filled with fresh air, cups of tea and cupcakes.
Alright, alright – don’t yawn! I enjoyed it, and that’s what matters!
To be honest, I’ve just been so busy lately, it was nice to have a quiet, peaceful birthday. No work. No drama. Just a day at the seaside with a dog and a cafe crawl. You know you’re getting older when you start going on cafe crawls instead of bar crawls!
I got up in the morning to a gorgeous setting of flowers, birthday decorations and cupcakes that were themed around Alice in Wonderland.
Yes, that’s right. ALICE IN WONDERLAND CUPCAKES! 😀
How can you complain about anything in life when you have Alice in Wonderland cupcakes? I mean, it would just be rude to grumble!
My favourite gifts were two literary gifts from a wonderful company called Scribbelicious. It’s not the first time that I have received a gift from them – I got a beautiful pendant for Christmas, with a quote from Peter Pan on the front. Until my birthday, I wore it everywhere. The only reason I haven’t worn it since my birthday, is because I got a nice new pendant for my birthday! Yaaaay! If I knew how to put emojis on here, I would totes use the double high-five one right now.
The new pendant matches the cupcakes with their shared Alice theme.
Sterling Silver, with a delightful illustration sealed behind the glass, the pendant recreates the weird and wonderful Mad Hatter’s tea party in Alice in Wonderland.
The quote says: ‘It’s always Tea-time.’
It’s just gorgeous, and I can’t stop looking at it.
Tricky thing is, I absolutely must stop looking at it so I can admire my other favourite gift: Wuthering Heights earrings.
Yah, yah… I know, right? Splendid!
These little beauties are designed with the iconic declaration of love by Catherine, when she says that ‘Whatever our two souls are made of, his and mine are the same.’
They’re simply stunning.
Of course, I now wear these pieces of jewellery everywhere I go. ‘Tis the law. After all, I need some pretty in my life, now the ageing process has set in. I spent my afternoon in Porthcawl, drinking tea and eating chips on the beach with all the other old people. And I won’t lie to you – I enjoyed it. Very much. I accept the inevitability of growing older and wiser, as long as I can keep having enchanting literary gifts to make me feel young and beautiful. I don’t think that’s too much to ask, is it?
I’m putting some photos on here of my birthday, and I’m also putting photos of my two glorious Scribbly gifts, so have a nose and see what you think. I bet you’ll fall in love with them, just as I did! And if that’s the case, I invite you to visit the Scribbelicious website and online store to browse through the brilliant selection of literary products available.
Trust me, you’ll love it there!
