In one week’s time my 31st birthday will be upon me – yipee! A time for indulgence, treats and personal gratification. I like to milk my birthday for what it’s worth and I allow myself guilt-free requests such as magazines, pampering, new clothes and anything else that takes my fancy. Okay, it’s not that different from the norm but it’s always an enjoyable time never the less. 🙂
For a bit of fun I thought I’d look through the virtual shopping aisles and pick out my favourite lingerie and homeware pieces. There’s nothing quite like a bit of imagination splurging!
First to go into my birthday basket is the Freya ‘Beau’ bra set (28H) in the new colourway, Lollipop, due out February (how convenient?!) When the ‘candy’ Beau came out last year it did nothing for me, in fact the colour made me dislike it. Now it’s going to be in this juicy, fruity pink colour, I love it! I’m obsessed!

I love burning candles and my favourite brand is by far Yankee Candle
. I’ve been enjoying them for about twelve years now and I’m as yet to come across such quality home fragrances elsewhere. Having sniffed a sneak peek of forthcoming scents I knew I’d want A Child’s Wish
when it comes out. It’s floral but really fresh and spring-like.
I think cushions are one of those things I’m pretty obsessed about. I fall for cushions so easily and so often, my sofas and bedroom are a crazy mismatch array of cushions! This cushion would definitely live in the bedroom: it’s awesome. The very Party Ring-esque Celebration Biscuit cushion by Sass and Belle.
Then I would be sure to throw in the Nadin bra set by Comexim. The design and colours are so unusual but vibrant and girly. I love it! I’ve been afraid to buy overseas though as I’m not sure what size I’d need to order.

Buying a new handbag is one of my favourite past times and Nica has regularly been my go-to brand. I’ve lost count how many I’ve bought! I just love the texture of their fabrics and the lovely colours they use. I would love the shoulder bag from their Nica Play range in green. Yum!
Some shades of pink can be a bit wimpy but when I saw this clock I was smitten with the hot pink. I can’t stop looking at this Acctim clock called Lorene. The other half probably wouldn’t be very impressed but I’d be thrilled to see it everyday!
As I’m a list freak (you wouldn’t believe how many lists I have on the go at any one time) stationary is always of huge interest to me, particularly pads of paper and notebooks. I didn’t see this on Dotcomgiftshop until today: the pretty Vintage Doily sticky memo pads set. I would so enjoy myself writing up my things to do!
I’ve been cross stitching for 15 years and recently taken to making cushions and little cute home decorations so storage for my needles and crafty tools is essential. Currently my boxes are practical and far from pretty so it would be nice to have some attractive storage solutions. Button It is so far up my street, I’m sure it was made just for me. The gorgeous colours and covetable silver buttons make them absolutely yummy. This hot pink polka dot sewing box would be perfect for my most important bits and pieces. Mmmm, yes please!
