#LetsTalkBlogChellenge Week 3: Birthday Box

Another week, another topic! I'm thoroughly enjoying the new routine of writing posts for this challenge. It's relaxing to sit down and just type about a pre-decided topic. I find it takes the stress out of blogging that little bit...

Anyways! This week we're talking all about our ideal Birthday Boxes. This can be gifts, beauty, fashion, locations, the works! Now I don't know about the rest of the girls participating in this challenge but I have a very clear picture of my perfect birthday...

First I'd wake up and have a long hot shower, first exfoliating with Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff, and following that with The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel, and then moisturize with Dove Silky Nourishing Body Cream.

The Door of the VCC
After that, I'd dry and curl my hair, do my face and dress in something "me"; Ripped jeans and my beloved black docs, with a teal cami under a floaty black tank top, and a leather biker jacket.

I'd have a shopping trip, indulging in a new pair of Docs, some thrifting, make-up, books and a stint in IKEA.

In the afternoon, I would be partial to a bite to eat with my Pook and my friends. Burritos and beers anyone? Bitta banter and my favorite food, around a big table in Tolteca...

We'd split up to get ready for a night of cocktails and laughter. I'm not a big nightclub goer, so a quiet bar with cocktails would be perfect. Maybe the VCC? That would be awesome.

What do you think of my birthday box? 
Have you any suggestions for activities or venues?
Let me know down below and as always, don't forget to tweet Sarah with the hashtag #LetsTalkBlogChallenge to keep up with all the goings on!
