My Birthday: Part 1

My Birthday cake and candles
So I concluded on Monday evening (my Birthday), that I am one lucky Hayley. My presents were wonderful and my family, their usual colourful selves. I had a birthday coffee, a lovely cheese and wine brunch and then for dinner, an Indian feast...oh and Cake! By the time I went to sleep I felt well and truly stuffed. It stayed that way until the next afternoon. It is compulsory to have nice food on your birthday right!?

Birthday Lunch
Wanted to show you the lovely things I was given because it is all very fashionable! Here are a few snaps I took:

a Country Road bag

For those of you who haven't heard of this make, you have are now in on one of Australia's best kept fashion secrets. Walking round Sydney, I could easily spot half a dozen of these every minute - Melbourne, Perth and Cairns being the same. They are tote bags with the versatility of acting as a holdall or handbag. As you can see from the picture, mine is pillar-box red. I have been wanting once since back in 2009! It is beautiful and was sent from an even more beautiful person, my big sister Carly.

the green Henry Holland satchel

Maybe you read my post on this bag. It may have been 2 weeks ago now but I received a lot of positive feed back and many of you wished I would get it! It seems all your wishing did not go to waste. I am now it's proud new owner. Another perfect bag.

the entire DVD Harry Potter Collection

I am in the process of planning out my Harry Potter movie fest'. Is it possible to fit 7 movies into one day...hmm lets see...each film is about 2 hours long, so if I times 2 by, right so that's...2 X 7 = 14...*continues important sums in head*


Maybe I haven't written too much about books on here but seriously, when I go shopping I often come back with more books than clothes. They make me excited, they take me away from all the little problems life can present and they improve my writing and widen my knowledge. Books are magical.

other DVD's

I read the Twilight Saga when I was back in Secondary school. At the time they were my favourite! No, I wasn't a "TWI-HARD" as my friend Kristin would say, but I really loved it. The films are something that I can fall into, I mean ''they ain't gonna win no Oscars'' but they keep me entertained and remind me of people and moments I love. I watched Twilight back in 2009 on a trip to Italy with my school. Everyone had fallen asleep and it must have been 3am. Me and my best friend Katie managed to get on to the TV and awkwardly watched it with one of the teachers who hadn't been able to sleep (I think I should add that he wasn't bad looking either...)

Midnight in Paris was my favourite film of 2011. Me and my sister went to see it in the same cinema. There is something magical about watching a film set in a beautiful city set in the 1920's and filled with people walking in the rain as we are sat in a 1920's cinema in a wonderful city and then proceed to walk home in the rain. Atmospheric is the only word I can use to describe it.

Just a snap of my lovely cards!
I had such a blast on my Birthday, and the best part has to be turning 19. I move out of my house in September when I go to University so this year is going to be quite important for me! My party is tomorrow night so pictures will follow soon in 'My Birthday: Part 2'. It worked for the Harry Potter and Twilight films so I thought I would give it a go!

Cannot wait to hear back from you all!

So, so so glad you got the green bag! Can't wait to see it in an outfit post! Everything else you got is wonderful, too. What an awesome birthday! Let me know how Norwegian Wood is. I've seen it in bookstores and have been intrigued, but haven't bought it yet.
