The Very Happy Birthday List!

I should have put this post up weeks ago because the 27th of July, was my official birthday, but I've been busy these last few weeks. I've still got lots of animal photos to come and another scheduled post about alternative festivals too. I know, I'm actually planning my blog posts for once!

Instead, for today's post I devised a list of the ultimate birthday gifts, as last Wednesday I turned 21. This list is just a few things that you would love to wake up and do on your birthday regardless of current situation, money, geography etc. So for example if you had the money I bet someone would love to wake to a really expensive pair of shoes that they'd been longing for for a good while. So here's my list, enjoy!

  1. This mermaid earring.
My ears aren't even pierced but if they were I would definitely love to wear something like this, just once. It fulfills my fairytale adoration and looks quirky and cool at the same time.

2. A never ending supply of these

Cute desserts are always good.

3. This Vera Wang gown

Completely impossible to have but the sheer thought of being able to float about in a pretty dress like this would be lovely. Especially on your own birthday!

4. My own island

Every once in a while I dream of having my own place I can just escape to and I'm sure other people have felt like at some point as well. No matter how impossible it is, it's still on my dream list.

5. To spend the entire day sitting painting

Right by the beach, with only the sound of the waves and the sun on my back. Bliss!

6. A Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party!

Does it even need words. One of my favourite books as a kid, and as we all know, no-one ever really grows up. Completely...ahem. Ok maybe I just never grew up.

7. A horse

Ever since I was a little girl I've always wanted a horse of my own. If my circumstances were different and I had the time and money for a horse I would be very happy indeed.

8. A huge garden party for all my friends

With lots of little crafty goodies and these pink-tipped glasses and fruit cocktails and cupcakes. The perfect way to celebrate a birthday!

9. A Jack Sparrow Inspired Outfit

Disneybound does it again!

What kind of things would be on your list?
Have a good day/evening everyone!
