Number 23

With only 8 days to go until I turn 30, I was totally surprised this morning with number 23 from my 30 Before 30 list.

23. Buy myself an exquisite piece of jewellery

My younger brother and his girlfriend had organised (through AJ because they live in Canada) to buy me a lovely piece of jewellery from Tiffany's and wanted me to get it a little early as they are leaving for a holiday in Peru soon. OK, so technically I didn't buy it myself, but this is even better if you ask me!

I have to say that I love big cheap jewellery (I live in Diva) and I have never had a fancy piece of jewellery and so I thought it was about time I started to act a little grown up. I have drooled over the jewellery in Tiffany's many times and lusted after the day I could have a special piece for myself. So I am beyond thrilled to have a gorgeous piece that I'll be able to keep forever.

OK, so I suppose you want to see photos...

That bag and box that can take a girls breath away...

It looks so pretty I almost don't want to open it...

Exactly want I want, big silver hoops! I wear cheap silver hoops every day that make my ears bleed, but I feel naked without them, now I have good quality ones I can wear without infection!

A close up of me wearing them... and a goofy smile...

Me showing off my new earrings... before running out the door and realising I am running seriously late for work!

Oh and they also sent me this too... chocolate and champagne... I have to admit that I have already demolished most of this...

Turning 30 is suddenly not seeming so bad...


  1. Isn't that nice, love the earrings and how can you go wrong with chocolate?

  2. LOVELY!!!!!

    as for the turning 30 thing.... about 2 weeks before i hit 30 (almost 9 years ago....) I freaked out.... and then Willard Scott came on the Today Show with his Smucker's Birthday celebrations... and I realised I still had *70* years to go before I qualified to appear on that segment.... and all was well with the world :)

  3. Noice!!!!

    I love to spread out my birthday treats.......... Am glad yours are so lovely this year!!!

  4. Silver hoops are such a staple - I'm glad you have some lovely quality ones!

  5. Glad to see you're being spoilt. Loving the dress.

  6. What a perfect pressie - they are stunning!

    Your New York print looks fab, too :-) I don't think I saw that when I visited?


  7. Gorgeous earrings -- how clever of your bro to know that you would want/need a really good quality pair of silver hoops. Now if anyone admires them you can casually say "yah, they're from Tiffany's"

  8. Tiffanys boxes are often more exciting that the present inside aren't they? LOL

    What an awesome gift. I'm with you on the grown up jewellery front.


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
