birthday wishlist (oh hai mum!)

Its now just under 3 weeks till I reach the grand old age of 20. My 20th birthday is on April 2oth and I genuinely feel so old. I mean in the grand scheme of it I'm really not that old, But when I look at someone younger than me I'm always so shocked to see how "grown up" most of the girls are nowadays. I mean when I was 14 I used to wear baggy red corduroy trousers and too small t-shirts. All the girls nowadays want to be older than they are, and start fake tanning and doing makeup from the age of about 12. Its so weird, because it makes me feel like times have changed SO much so quickly. *sigh*

Today I got asked what I actually wanted for my birthday and I honestly didn't have a clue. To be honest, I don't want or need anything in particular. I always buy whatever I want when I want. I pay for everything I own myself so when it comes to birthday presents I'm always at a loss. Any way, Here are a few things that I like that I don't currently own!

What do you want for your next birthday?



  1. Haha I feel the same way about young girls, most of them have a better phone and wardrobe than me, it's so annoying haha.
    Just wait til you finish uni and feel even older, like me! Although I couldn't hack the real world and went back for post-grad haha

  2. Ah my wishlist is nearly identical!

    I love the artwork and the Alexa- WANT so bad.

    It is crazy about young girls, I do think its sad sometimes though. Why can't kids just be kids still? :( x

  3. it's my birthday soon too! i have just started thinking about things to ask for, as always there's a few things from topshop, some polaroid film and that bag!! but mainly i just want dollars for when i go to america in the summer♥ x

    ps. i don't know if i've said this before but you have a lovely blog!

  4. Thats a fab list there! i pretty much love everything on it. Theres some scrabble jewellry on ebay, handmade by a girl for pretty cheap,also check out urbanoutfitters they're giving away a diana camera in a comp. God i feel like im plugging or something lol im so sorry. Great post! great taste. Oh n i TOTALLY agree with the young girl thing, most of them these days look older than me :( xx

  5. Love the necklaces!!
    I agree, I always think that about younger kids :(

  6. Gah if you feel old at 20 you should wait 'til you reach 24 and feel like shooting anyone who says "Wow you're near the quarter-of-a-century mark!". (okay that may be a little too bitter)

    Lomo and MAC lipsticks FTW!!! <3 hope you get something good. (:

  7. Oh i feel the same about this "teenagers". I have seen girls that are 14 and look like 19 or twenty the same age i have! What is going on? It was so different before. Anyways, i'd love to have a lomo camera and a holga for my next bday. Everything you chose is beautiful.

  8. Hi !

    I juste leave that comment to say that I'm a follower of your blog for a few days and I'm totally fond of it ! It's sooo interesting and it gives me many ideas !
    And I'm born on the 2oth April too :)

  9. You should get the mini diana :)
