HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEEEEE!!

C: Hi everyone! Just a little birthday related post today, it was my quarter century birthday over the weekend and I thought I would share with you all the beautiful gifts I was lucky enough to receive! This is not a bragging post, I was just super spoilt and wanted to share all the lovely things I got with you guys (plus there are some hints at reviews that will be coming up soon!

Homeware/random nice things

First up I received some more Long Tall Sally pyjamas from my parents in law. These are my favouritest brand of pjs as they are super comfy and not ankle swingers on me, so they were the perfect gift! I love the checked pattern, and I am saving these for my post baby, first nights sleep at home pjs! (If anyone wants to treat me to 100 more pairs then feel free). The parentals number 2 also got me this “Junk Genius” book, which is full of tat according to the father 2 – which means I will clearly love it! It is full of ways to use stuff you have lying about the house to make something amazing – I am going to find the worst thing in it and make father2 it for Christmas. He will pretend he doesn’t, but secretly love it. Tat is his favourite.

I also got this cute tea light from one of my lovely friends, and this oil burner from Annie. I love candles so these were always going to go down well! The green colour is also almost a perfect match for my lounge/dining room and the oil burner will go perfectly in my bedroom! So good colour matching friends – 10 points to gryffindor.

Jewels!

My friend who got me the tea light holder also got me these amazing midi rings! I love midi rings but loose them all the time, so I was in need of some more to add to my diminishing collection! I love the colours of these! I also got this necklace and these earrings from L, who took me shopping for my birthday to make me feel better about being pregnant and a whale. These were from H&M and were £3.99 each I think! I also got new clothes, but I shall show you those in some OOTD’s post baby!

Make Up/Beauty Stuff

Annie got me lots of new make up! We had been shopping a week or so ago, and clearly she had been paying attention as I love all of these things! This Make Up Revolution eye shadow is super exciting, and like nothing I have ever tried before, so I can’t wait to review it for you – it comes with its own primer and mixing tray to make it super long lasting! She also got me the Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick I wanted as I really like the new packaging… yes I am that lame, and the Make Up Revolution Blush Palette which is clearly too pretty and I won’t be able to bring myself to use it for ages. But I will review it for you eventually I promise! Lastly another friend treated me to three Lush Bubble Bars! Lush is my favourite for bath stuff and she got me The Comforter, Pop in the Bath and a Creamy Candy Bar – all very good choices as they smell AMAZING!

So there we have my birthday treats! I also got given some Boots vouchers (which I cannot wait to spend!) from the work bestie and some pennies from the fam (which I spent on getting the dog to the groomers and my car valeted… I am clearly now getting old) so I was super spoilt! What do you guys think of my pressies?! #twolittleowls

A #dearsally Christmas OOTD

C: A Christmassy OOTD for you lovelies today! If you saw my #dearsally wishlist (which you can see here) then you may recognise this outfit!

After doing my #dearsally wishlist, the lovelies at Long Tall Sally were kind enough to send me the Christmas day outfit that I had chosen! So here is how it all looks together in real life, I added my favourite tartan scarf just to add to the festiveness as well as a red lip. What do you guys think?

The quality of the clothes is spot on, and I am especially in love with the boots! They are honestly just the perfect Chelsea boots, even L likes them – when normally he just moans I have too many shoes! The jumper is also a beautifully thin material, meaning it is perfect for being at work in those warm offices, or for Christmas shopping as you can look festive without being too hot! #twolittleowls

#dearsally : Long Tall Sally Holiday Wishlist

C: for those of you lovelies who have met Annie and I, you will be well aware that I am almost 6ft. This can cause a lot of problems when trying to buy both clothing essentials and fashionable pieces – seriously, trousers and pyjama bottoms are always ankle (knee) swingers on me! I have always shopped at Long Tall Sally for my jeans, pj’s and long tops, so when they asked me to do a Christmas wishlist for them I jumped at the chance! The quality of their clothes is fantastic and their customer service is always fab! So anyway, lets get to the looks I have designed!

Christmas Shopping

I went for a casual, comfy look as when you are rushing around Christmas shopping you need easily removable layers for when going in and out of shops! Shopping can also be stressful, so comfort is key! I would team these with the Chuck Naylor Converse Long Tall Sally also sell here.

1. Rip and Repair Boyfriend Jean £60

2. Jersey Marl Batwing Top £22

3. Throw on Knit Cardigan £45

Christmas Party

Trying to get dresses that are long enough to be socially acceptable for a party is a nightmare for me, so I assumed I would pick a dress for this outfit… then I saw this jump suit and absolutely fell in love! I love jumpsuits but from any other shop they result in the dreaded camel toe – not an acceptable look for any occasion. These boots are AMAZING too, and I would accessorise simply with this beaded bag from New Look.

Ponte Belted Jumpsuit £75

Double Zip Suede Ankle Boots £110

Christmas Day

On Christmas Day you want to look festive, yet comfortable and stylish, which is why I went for skinny jeans, a Christmas jumper and these Chelsea boots. It’s illegal to not wear a Christmas jumper in my house on Christmas day, but the rest of the outfit makes it modern and warm.

Gift Ideas

And lastly, some gift ideas that a perfect for both beautifully tall ladies and anyone else! Long Tall Sallys pyjamas are my absolute favourite, and I never wear anything else, so I obviously chose those and some lovely clashing tartan slippers. I love tartan so much, that I also picked out a beautiful scarf that is super on trend right now so would be loved by everyone! And lastly… the kimono. I don’t think I have seen anything this amazing, ever. I love it so much, I might have to order it rather than wait to see if I get it for Christmas!
