What I got for my birthday 2019

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! If you didn’t know, yesterday was my birthday and I’m now officially over halfway to being 30. Saying that just makes me want to throw up but let’s forget about it. I already plan on having a Golden Girls party for when I turn 30, though 😉

Since my birthday was yesterday, I figured I’d do a birthday haul. When I’m typing this up, it’s a few days before my birthday. However, I did get a gift that I didn’t want to forget to include in this post. Before I get started, I want to say a quick thank you to those who wished me a happy birthday or even just, thought of me. Of course, I’d also like to thank every one of my family and friends who got me gifts (who likely won’t be reading this lmao) 😛

1. The Afterlife of Holly Chase Fence Vol. 1

The first gifts I received were from Ellyn. I was honestly so surprised when these came to my door even though she told me about them. She got me The Afterlife of Holly Chase and Fence Vol. 1, neither of which I’ve read but I know that they’re both favorites of Ellyn’s. I’m so happy that she thought of me and decided to gift me two books that I know she loves dearly. Thank you so much, Ellyn, I love you ❤

2. Spending money for my concert

Most of my family gave me cards for my birthday and all of them had money in them so I decided to save that for my concert. I don’t really have much more to say about this lol but I’m happy to save it all up and make sure that I don’t have to use much money for the concert. I’m still going to take money out because I know that it’ll end up having no self-control lmao.

3. A cat blanket, a cat face mask, B&N gift card, and a cake

For my birthday, my parents got me a few things and I was SO happy. I got a cat blanket, a face mask that looks like a cat, a gift card to Barnes & Noble plus they got me 2 cakes for my birthday. I think there was something else, but I really can’t remember…is that bad? Lol, either way, I appreciated it all. 🙂

4. A Beauty and the Beast sweatshirt

The day after my birthday, we had a little get-together at my house and my aunt decided to drop off my gift. Since she knows I love Beauty and the Beast, she got me a Beauty and the Beast cropped sweatshirt. It’s really soft and I can’t wait to wear it when it starts getting colder.

5. A gift from Lysette

For my birthday, Lysette got me a gift but it got lost in the mail and I’m waiting for the replacement. I don’t know what it is yet but I’m sure that I’ll love it. That’s part of the reason why I decided to use that gif lmao. I’m sure that I’ll include it in a future post so eventually, we’ll all know. 😛

As for the second part of my post, I decided to talk about a few things that I bought myself for my birthday. First, I’d like to mention that I bought myself, Jonas Brothers tickets and a meet&greet so that’s basically the biggest birthday gift that I could get myself.

Additionally, I also bought myself a fanny pack, a Bob’s Burgers keychain and a train ticket!

What I want for my birthday 2019

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I don’t think that I’ve mentioned it in any of my posts before now but my birthday is on August 15th. Unfortunately, I’m not going to be an exciting age so that’s nothing really thrilling. I’m going to be 26 which isn’t anything to really write home about lmao.

Since there’s no Top 5 Tuesday post this week, I decided to do something a little bit different. I’m going to talk about some of the things I want for my birthday this year and then I might do a birthday haul. To be completely honest, I haven’t really thought about what I want nor have I given my parents any indication so we’ll see.

Before getting into what I want, I’d like to talk a little about what I do for my birthday. I usually get up pretty early and go out to lunch with my parents and my cousin, Veronica. It’s nothing fancy but it’s something that I really enjoy doing plus I can always sneak by Barnes & Noble or the mall to pick something up for myself.

1. An Amazon gift card

One thing I really would enjoy getting is an Amazon gift card. I used to have an Amazon wishlist but I don’t use it unless it’s around Christmas. Instead, I’d enjoy an Amazon gift card so I can buy some Kindle books. Recently, I’ve been scouring the romance category and have found some books I’d really be interested in. Additionally, I want to buy DNCE’s second CD but I could also buy that on iTunes so we’ll see.

2. Spending money for my concert

Usually, for my birthday, my family gives me a card with money in it and I really appreciate it. This year, I’m going to save up all of it for use at my concert. I’ve been thinking about this concert for the past 3 months and I know I’m probably going to have no self-control once I get in there. That being said, I already have a plan of how much I think I’m going to need for the concert so I’m feeling pretty confident.

3. Jeans from American Eagle

In the mail, I got a coupon for American Eagle jeans and even though it’s been years since I shopped there, a lot of the Youtubers I watch rave about their jeans. Since then, I’ve been really excited to get a pair of my own. They have a new brand of jeans that are specifically made for a “curvy” figure so I want to give those a try. Considering that my coupon’s for 25% off, then there’s no harm in trying!

Honestly, I’ll probably end up treating myself and buy the jeans for myself lmao. I’m also going to have to buy my train ticket for the concert so that’s going to be a little bit of money. Overall, I’ve really been saving up for this concert so I’m trying to keep my spending to a minimum for August. Lmao

Hopefully, I didn’t come off like a huge brat or anything for making this list. More than likely, I probably won’t end up getting anything off this list and I’ll just be content since I have my concert to look forward to. Plus I have some BIG plans for fall which I’ll talk about in a post soon so look out for that 😛
