It's the time of the year when my birthday is coming. I've rarely been able to say what I want for my birthday, so I decided to start real early for this list as my 18th birhday is quite important. So, today I am 16 and starting my list for my birthday. I'm going to schedule the date of post and will probably forget all about it. SO, yeah...

But this can be a quide of what to give to your 18th buddy to! Imagine he/she is talking to you about what they want!

Here we go (remember to click on the photos to follow the links, bae):

1. My Life, kikki.K - $39.95

 My Life

I thought that something to organise myself for my adult self would be quite good, and what better than a kikki.K. This is great to organise everything, but one of their time planners in addition would be marvelous.

2. A DIY scrapbook

A scrapbook of my 18 years on this earth, or of my years of friendships with you - it would heartwarming and beautiful 'cause I love you!

2. 18th Birthday Wish Jar - DIY or £14.95

This one you can DIY or buy it! Either way it's adorable and so pinterest!

3. Made in 1999 - 20€

Made in 1999

5. Music compilation/plyalist

A compilation with songs with my name in every song, or the songs you know I love, or the songs we share, or even the songs for wherever I'm heading to - if it's universaty, travelling or working! It will be perfect!

6. Generally Etsy

Etsy

I don't know about you but I love Etsy! You can look at my wishlist or favourites for inspiration!

How To Be A Woman, Caitlin Moran

This book is before anything honest and down right sexy, and my first feminist novel read.

A feminist book has never been more relaxed, funny and shocking in a paragraph. Reading it you have the feeling that you are listening to a human. Obviously she is also an author - you can see it in the fluidity of her writing - but she isn't an essayist.

She is simply analysing her life with a feminist perspective.

She exclaims that we need more pornography (for more choice), that it is important for a woman (and men) to say out loud : "I'm a feminist!". Go on, I'll wait for ya! Say it!

This book, I had found it a couple of years ago in our library. I had started it, but after a page and a half I already had enough. It's really bizarre to think of it now that this book has basically become my witty Bible, like The Female Eunuch is for Caitlin Moran and many other women. I imagine I was not ready, as I am not ready today for Germaine Greer's book.

Taking this into account I understand that not every woman has read How to be a woman, but hey! The title says it all! I'm convinced every woman should read it even if it is just for the humour! Following this, I'm guessing that every girl should read How To Build A Girl which is why it is on my to be read (tbr) list!

Which Decade Should You Have Been Born In?

Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn. (1929-1993). The beautiful British actress from Hollywood's Golden Age, is tributed with a pink Google Doodle for her '85th birthday'.

Audrey Hepburn's Google Doodle

Though I have only seen 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (1961) I love Audrey, and her pure elegance.

I with the help of my photograph/brother, Louis, did a 'photoshoot' with the theme of the ever lasting Audrey Hepburn.

Dr Who and stuff!

When I was in England last (end of May- beginning of April ie. ages ago) for a week with school we went to Stratford-Upon-Avon the birth place of the most famous William in the world, Shakespeare.

Now you must be wondering why is the title 'Dr Who and stuff' if it's in Startford?

Well, my dear reader, in Stratford there is a store called Time Warp which is like no other place I have ever been in. It is a place where all kinds of geekly awesome merchandises are awaiting for a fan like a Whovian, South-Parkians*, Muppetians* etc. (*I have no idea what there fandom name are).
