Birthday Pressies!!

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 17 - 2011

Teeny quick update (knew I wouldn’t be able to stay away!)…

I’m having the bestest day thanks to the most thoughtful husband a girl could ever dream of.

Infact, I’m composing this post on my new phone and if it works it’ll hopefully make updating on the go a real possibility! (you poor, poor things).

Anyway, look at my lovely birthday presents!! How lucky am I?

Thank you for all your kind birthday messages, this getting older lark really isn’t that scary after all!

    The Guerlain palette is one of my favorites. It is being discontinued which is supersad and means that I need a least two backups! Happy birthday!!! Hope you are having a fabelous day!

    • It’s a rouge d’Armani in #404 (which I’m afraid was LE) – I saw it on Temptalia last Xmas and it had all sold out! Mr. L gave me the go ahead to snap it up on eBay when I saw it last week! My present from Leila LOL

    Happy Birthday

    Nice assortment of gifts. What are the tubes that look like a cross between a crayon and a test tube?

  19. Happy birthday! Your husband did us all proud, and I am going to have my DH call yours for lessons. :) His birthday was last week, and while he was away, I built him his own private office out of what had once been a guest bedroom.

  29. Any chance Mr L could set up his own blog – “how to buy stuff your wife actually wants” please. It annoys me no end to have to buy AND wrap my own gifts, but annoys me way more to have to unwrap his version of something I want, 24 yrs later and I still haven’t got over the nasty red and clear glass earrings he bought from Argos to apparently “go with” my ruby and diamond engagement ring!!
