The perfect birthday gift
It's that time of the year! My birthday is in a couple of weeks. In three weeks, I will be part of 'the big 30'. I wasn't looking forward to it, but now it is getting closer I am starting to accept it. After 29 incredible birthdays, it is time to think about what I want to do with my 30th birthday. Every year my friends and family ask me: ''Anne, what would you like to have for your birthday?'' Every year I give them a few options. However, this year it's actually very difficult. I am out of inspiration and my birthday is in three weeks, please help!
Besides not having inspiration for my birthday gifts, I also have no idea about how to celebrate my birthday. My friends and family are used to a big birthday party every year, were they can have a get together. Often these are parties with about 30 people. This year I want to do things differently. I found out that I want to celebrate my birthday only with the people I am really close with. I would like to have the people around me, I am really close with and whom I am grateful for. Those are the people who have been there for me in the past. Conclusion: I do what I want to do, and I invite my dearest friends/family.
I just created a group chat, that's easier to communicate. I nominated Isabel and Nura (my 2 best friends) as the organizers for my little birthday party. A few moments later Isabel calls me and she says: ''really nice! Do you already know how to celebrate? And what do you want as a present?'' Before I could answer I heard Nura talking on the background. Nura said: ''Yes Anne…Do you know anything nice yet?'' I had already come up with a few things last week and I gave them a few options. "Don't you have all of that already?" Nura said. ''Uhm yes that could be right''. I indicated that I really do not know what I exactly want, I like everything as long as I can celebrate my birthday with them. However, I know Isabel and Nura pretty well and I know they will come up with a great present after all. Normally people are always on the right side when you give something like a perfume, earrings or fashionable shoes. Choices, choices…
The big day
Finally, it's the big day, today I turned 30. Hip hip hooray! I started the day in a relaxed way. I drink my first cup of coffee and the first people send me messages on my phone. In the past I always liked to congratulate everyone by phone, however nowadays, with the technology it's normal to send a quick happy birthday message.
As I mentioned before, I am going to celebrate my birthday tonight with a small group of people. I just bought some drinks and snacks, the fun will come naturally
Oh, and speaking of those gifts. So last night I saw the most amazing boots EVER online. They are not only fashionable, but also water-repellent and comfortable. They are the Chelsea Boots for women from the Blundstone brand. I think this one is crazy. Maybe there's a chance that someone who knows me very well bought these boots for my birthday. If that is not the case, I will still order them myself, they are so cool. I have been in love with model 510 for some time now! This model is Chelsea boots for women, but also perfect for men! What I find so cute is that model 531 are the children's Chelsea boots from Blundstone..! So cute!!
The birthday presents
The first people arrive, it is already fun after a few minutes. After half an hour everyone arrived and I received the first gifts. I got a wonderful perfume from Anouk and a very nice sweater from my friend Naomi. I love it! However, now it's time for the 'big' gift from Isabel and Naomi. Bring it on…
The Chelsea boots for men and women
I just can't believe it! How is this possible… Isabel and Nura bought the exactly same Chelsea boots from Blundstone! I am surprised and enthusiastic at the same time. As you can see, real friends know your wishes. I put on the boots immediately and the fit like a glove. I will never take them off! I secretly think that I will buy another pair, because they are so beautiful. I checked the Blundstone website, they have all kind of models. Shopping time has begun!
