My Birthday Wish List

I am not someone who is obsessed with [my] Birthday, and tell everyone about it. But since friends and family keep asking me what I want, it made sense to make a list, and share some of the things with you, too. I have chosen to post the items that may be of interest to you.  Maybe it will inspire you to get these things for yourself, or maybe you are just curious about what I want. I know I am always curious to see all those wish lists.

New Phone. I mainly use my phone for calling or sending messages, and  I use my iPad mini for everything else on the go. This is why I like phones like  Nokia and Blackberry qwerty. My F&F find it to be a really weird thing. But it is not gonna change, I would like a new phone like that, too.

I also need a new pair of red Dr Martens. I have been wearing Doc’s shoes for as long, as I remember. My black pair is still going strong but the red ones need a replacement.

Something To Read

I am an avid reader, so my list could be ridiculously long but I have chosen to post  only the relevant [for the website] items.  And I still don’t have any of these books yet.

Gentlewoman Magazine (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I haven’t read magazines in ages but this one seems like the one I would like.

Speaking of the gentlewomen, I would like the The New Garconne: How to Be a Modern Gentlewoman book   ( Amazon and Amazon UK) very much.

I would really love to thank all of you for taking your time, and reading it. I have actually decided to celebrate yesterday, and it was the most wonderful day!
