|Yeah, this is cool and all, but there better be cake too...|
Stop asking me what the fuck to get me for my birthday, because I'm broke as shit and I want fucking everything. Unless you want to drop a grand on Asos Curve then I don't know what I want.
Realising this is an unreasonable response (apparently) to 'What do you want for your birthday?', I've compiled a list of shit I need, use and love all under €15 because I love you and if your wallet is part of you then I love that too and don't want to tap you out just because I managed to survive yet another year. There are 7 because I couldn't think of any more after that. If you really really like this post for some weird reason I'll do a part 2 that will probably involve more food.
GIFT IDEAS FOR ME, FOR MY BIRTHDAY, THAT HAPPENED ALREADY
ALL UNDER €15 YAAAS
1. FUcking Sanctuary Créme Souffle (£10.50 on their site but I remember it being about that in euros in Boots)
|Oh weird, apparently the 'white' in the background of the pic is a different,|
more modern, shinier white than the white of my blog... awkward.
2. Holy Shit Batman, it's fucking Bed Head Small Talk (£10 on average on Amazon because the site is too cool to put fucking prices next to their products. Don't want those nasty prices ruining the sleek fantasy of your brand, but I think it was about €15, they sell it in Lunatic Fringe so I usually drop in and get it there)
3. Flowers (or plants in general so price is whatever you want)
|I was looking for a picture to use here and I just searched 'Succulents pinterest' and it's like half an hour later because pinterest is just full of the most fucking beautiful leafy planty shit and it's making my eyes water I want it all so bad.|
So get me a Succulent, or some leafy house plant in a white pot, or just some nice cut flowers because sometimes it's nice to treat me to some flowers you guys x
(oh and get plants that are very difficult to kill, as this is all an illusion and I am actually terrible at keeping plants alive and not amazing at keeping myself alive either)
4. Motherfucking Candles (From €2)
|This was the weirdly sparse candle pic on the Tiger website. Weird. Because they sell like a million kinds.|
Also a handy bag of 8 hour tea lights is always much appreciated, I get through about a bag a week during the Winter.
(Actually I quite like that blue/teal one in the back in the pic, get me those and some white ones in various sizes, danke)
5. Fucking FOOD. Specifically Nóbo Ice Cream (like €8. It's pricey as fuck, but totally worth it)
|Yeah those two sexy bitches in the foreground, give me them fuck the coconut one that's practically fruit.|
I have coeliac disease. Really bad. Other internet coeliacs said to stop eating dairy because it helps you to feel less like you're slowly dying (and other equally fun coeliac symptoms). I did this, then forgot and ate a gigantic slice of Mint Vienetta and the next day I had heart burn that was so severe it was occupying the space around my body as well as my entire chest cavity. It was entirely unfair, I don't even like mint things when combined with chocolate things. But damage done, no more delicious bastard dairy.
So along came Nóbo, gluten free, dairy free (though oddly not vegan, why do they use honey? It seems so weird to use honey instead of a vegan alternative like agave so that everyone without a nut allergy can enjoy...). I particularly like the chocolate one but the lemon one is also pretty fucking amazing. Don't worry about it melting when you bring it to me, because the base is coconut milk it needs to get super melty before it resembles more traditional ice cream. Thanks for worrying about that though, you're sweet x
6. Nail Colour Perfection. Or Rimmel London Rita Ora 60 Second Nail Polish Breakfast in Bed
|Pic Source here (because it's probably weird to have a stranger's hand on your blog with out giving them a shout out)|
But then this perfection arrived. I don't know about you guys, but I NEED MY NAILS TO CONSTANTLY BE THIS COLOUR. I plan on going through quite a few bottles of this, and since it's only €3.57 for a bottle right now at Asos I'd recommend that you buy me at least two. And to help you get over the €15 mark so you get free delivery you should get me this Model's Own Artstix Corrector Pen for €7.14 because I am also really bad at painting my nails. You're still like 70c under the free delivery but that's not my problem, I held up my under €15 birthday list part of the bargain losers.
Also, sidenote, I thought Rita Ora sounded familiar, turns out My Bad Sister were in her video and were deadly as always.
7. Motherfucking $$$ (so however much you can part with)
|From 2012, back when I drank and wore colour as long as the colour was gold.|
All her benefits have suddenly been cut (you know, benefits, those things you're entitled to so you don't die) and since she's no longer getting Rent Allowance (or whatever the Scottish equivalent is) she has to pay a gigantic council tax... because logic.
She is a truly incredible person, and she needs some love right now preferably in monetary form to help her to survive so please donate whatever you can to her HERE x
(thanks for reading Lou-sers. In case you were wondering I'm now 24 and officially too fucking old to be on tumblr. byeeeeeeeeeeeee)
