Birthday Wishlist

scent sphere red

It’s my birthday today! I’m going to be conspicuously absent, however, as I have to go to uni and talk about literary theory and other such wonderful things. Later I’m going for a meal and then tomorrow is KITTEN DAY! I couldn’t really ask for anything more brilliant than a kitten, but I thought that it might be fun to do a bit of a fantasy wishlist. Of course, as we all know, the best gift is our good health and I am thankful that on my twenty-second birthday (hahaaaaaa) I am fit and ailment-free. Thanks in advance for all of your lengthy, tear-jerkingly moving birthday messages – it’s tough turning twenty-four twenty-six twenty, so your continued support is really appreciated.


1) Anything by Fornasetti. What superb design. Check out these babies!

FornasettiScent Sphere, £195

2) Mulberry Bayswater Calfskin Bag, £2000. Just because. It’s animal print, say no more.

mulberry bayswater leopard From Net-a-Porter here: - please note: if anyone actually buys this I shall hate them forever.

3) Cropped Faux-Fur coat from Anna Sui. I really want a glamtastic little jacket and this is just the ticket. Unfortunately I can not spend any more money until at least…hold on! Isn’t it Christmas soon?!

£455 from Net-a-Porter here:

4) Two more hours in every day. Just two – that’s all I’m asking for. That would be the best birthday present ever!

    Happy belated birthday Ruth! You look fab! I turned 29 on the 21st 2 stone heavier than when I turned 28 (post baby blubber) that’s depressing hopefully I’ll turn 30 much slimmer ;-) xxx

    Happy birthday!!!!! If I may do a little request…. please please do a uni-makeup video! Most days I go to uni bare faced anyway but you know, for the days that I actually bother it would be nice if you could make a video to inspire us uni-students. Best wishes!! Keep being beautiful, intelligent, classy, funny, humble and very inspiring xxx
