Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share the presents I’ve bought myself (so far) for my birthday and graduation.
This is my third annual BirthMay! What is BirthMay, you ask? Well I blog every day in May because it’s my birth month! I started BirthMay in 2017 and did it again in 2018 so I knew I had to do it again this year.
To be honest, these are probably not the only presents I’ll tell myself are for my birthday and graduation. And I tried not to go overboard but, well, there may be more later! I really love to spoil myself.
First up was tickets to see Anastasia the musical! I reviewed the musical for my blog if you’re curious to learn more about it but I loved it and I’m so happy I treated myself to that show!
Next is a trip to San Antonio! Now, I haven’t really gotten it all for myself, as I was in Texas anyway for a work trip and just extended my trip but I’m counting it anyway! I did a whole separate post on it if you want to read all about my San Antonio trip.
I also have a mini book haul that I’m blaming on graduation! You might remember that I already tried a recipe, the first of what I hope will be a series “Learning to Cook“, from the Cravings: Hungry for More cookbook by Chrissy Teigen. I also bought Again but Better by Christine Riccio, who is a booktuber I’ve followed for awhile. I was so interested in reading her book that I decided to just get it!
I also decided to get a new dress for graduation. I was originally going to wear a dress I already own but I tried them on and nothing felt right. I decided to get a new one and I love the one I picked out! I won’t share a photo quite yet although if you check my instagram later (@StarringPamela) or come back tomorrow for my last BirthMay post then you should see it! Why? Because graduation is tonight!!!
For what I think is also the third year in a row, I got myself ballet classes! The class starts at the end of June and goes until the start of August. I think it’s only 7 classes long (because the Fourth of July holiday is on one of the days) and I know I am probably going to have to miss one or two due to work commitments which does suck but I’m going to make the most of the classes I am going to have!
I do have one more present to myself I’m planning but because it isn’t for certain yet then I don’t want to say yet just in case it doesn’t happen. If it does though, it’ll be so very magical!
So, do you think I spoiled myself enough or no? Let me know!
Thanks for reading!
