the best birthday present I ever received…
A car for my 17th birthday from my parents. I felt very lucky however my mum and dad chose to tell me by writing it on the back of my birthday card so I didn’t realise until later that day when it was pointed out to me! It was all silver and shiny and my dad personalised my number plates to have his nickname for me along the bottom.

the worst birthday present I have received…
A pair of creole earrings when I was 18. They were really not my style but I felt compelled to wear them as a form of thanks!

the latest present I bought from notonthehighstreet.com…
The last thing I bought from the site was a birthday present for my friend. It was a love and luck print from Letterfest and she loved it. It was perfect as she was just moving into a new house and loves to surround herself with positive sayings, plus the typography is gorgeous!
