Favourite Things: Birthday Edit


So it was my birthday at the start of April, hence the lack of posting, but I thought I'd show some of my lovely gifts even if it is a week late. This birthday I did very well on the jewellery front,  and etsy made a killing out of my friends and family. Boyfriend bought me rose gold hoops and the pretty crystal necklace, my sister bought me the dainty silver necklace with my initial on it and some reindeer antler studs that aren't pictured. One of my girls made me the stunning pearl necklace which amazing and my bestie got me a lovely ring by Ottoman Hands which is pictured in more detail below.


My sister also got me this beautiful watercolour/ marbled scarf from Anthropologie. The weather needs to get less chilly before I can wear this though.
 

Last, but not least, I put my birthday money and some of my own into investing in a new camera. After much consideration I picked the Nikon D7000. I am very much a Nikon kind of girl, I was told that often Canons are not quite as sturdily made, the screws that hold it together screw into plastic, and with the Nikon it is into metal so they are easier to take apart and fix if they break. I am absolutely no camera expert though. Anyway, I was also given this beautiful leather strap for it too. I can't wait to full road test my new baby.

Again, sorry for my absence last week, I have many outfit posts coming your way though so keep your eyes peeled, if I have time, revision is in full swing.

With love from,

Emma x
