What I Got For My BIRTHDAY! 2019 | Fleur De Force

July 29, 2019



hello guys and welcome to the sweatbox it is so hot today so if you see a bead of sweat running down my forehead or collecting on my upper lip I do apologize it's so hot in England today and this week we're having a bit of heatwave and for those of you don't live here because it's so rarely this hot we don't have things really like air-conditioning or even fans so gets very hot it's so hot right now I'm gonna do this video let's do it so it was my birthday last week on the 19th of July on Friday I had a lovely day thank you to anyone who sent me messages always very much appreciated I had such a nice day celebrating with Mike Mike took the day off work and I just had a lovely birthday and every year I film a video about what I got for my birthday so here we go this year I actually got a few less things and a few more kind of experiences and so I'll tell you about firstly about an experience I got bought by the girls that I work with who bought me this is sounds so grannyish but it is like the best present for me ever I'm so excited a tour around Highgrove Gardens if you don't know Highgrove is the house that Prince Charles lives it's like his home around the hybrid gardens and afternoon tea which I'm super excited about and I'm taking my friend min with me because she's obsessed with gardening and Royals I was like who else could I take with me that is gonna be better so yeah that was my first present that was actually the first present I open as well and then where should I start let's start actually I'm gonna start with the present I bought for myself because I usually leave that till the end but it's on the top so every year I usually buy a little something for myself so I celebrate sounds really self indulgent and it is this year I usually kind of way if it's something like I really want this year I actually bought this headband which is from Anthropologie I love it so much they actually do these they do these in different colors every single season they bring out different ones but this year they have this beautiful beaded lightly design I was getting up a turquoise one cuz I thought it was really really beautiful but actually ended up going for the white and I'm really glad I did because it would go with more because it's already patterned I feel like it's difficult to wear with things like it kind of doesn't really go with this outfit I might leave it on anyway but I actually bought this on my birthday when I was in London with Mike and Oh next up I'm doing this like completely the wrong order – hi normally I'll tell you what Mike got me next so on my birthday Mike the sweat starting on the upper lip like sits on my birthday Mike took me to Maria Tosh to get a nuclear saying which was basically the only thing I wanted for my birthday and he was really stumped he wanted to get me something to open on my birthday morning so he actually bought me an iWatch which I ended up taking back it sounds really ungrateful but basically when you're married we have a joint account and I said to him I was like I just I won't use and I watch I have much prefers going at my office he was like okay fine we'll take it back so yeah I watched my bag because genuinely I wouldn't use it like he was like you but you use it running I like I take my phone running there's literally no point and I always take my phone running from a security point of view like I always think if something happens or if you get in an accident or something and you can call someone anyway regardless so Mike took me to reattach to get any piercing on my birthday and he bought me the jewelry to go in it which if you guys know Maria Tosh they pierce your ear with the super nice jewelry that you buy from them so the piece of jewelry that I went for is now in my ear but my body doesn't like piercings very much so at the moment my ear is very swollen please don't tell me that a swollen eye no I'm actually going after filming this I'm actually going back down to London this afternoon I'm gonna go in and get a longer post pin which I basically have to do every single time I haven't bear saying because my body just doesn't like it and swells up massively so at the moment my ear is like the reddest you've ever seen it and super super swollen but the piercing I'm not going to touch it but it is the one I just touched my ear but it was is the one up here I got my it's technically like in the rook area but it's called the – Brooke I think we're in etosha like it's her thing and I got a little baguette on rose gold like a little baguette diamond on rice god I absolutely love it it doesn't look very nice at the moment because my ear is beetroot red so I'm hoping that I can get through the healing stage of this I've only managed to do one I've only had two cartilage three cartilage piercings in the past before but I've only managed to get through the healing like process with one and that's my tragus so I'm like I have everything cross because I love I love this pacing so much I just really love the way it looks at my other jewelry as well the shine is real this is this is not this is not shine it's just full-on wet oh my foot seriously anyone that's in England this week you're feeling my pain I know you are what maybe not the ear pain anyway so that's what Mike born with my birthday as well as a bottle of Hendrix gym which went down very well I didn't drink it it just as a present they went now anyway he got me a bottle of gin as well and then river got me these espadrilles you guys know if you follow me a lot I wear I basically live in espadrilles in the summer and my favorite brand for espadrilles are saludos they're super comfortable and they do the cutest designs so she got me what I'm like got me the lovey on Rosie play on words espadrilles they do amazing amazing espadrilles these guys I have the Ciao Bella ones they were Citians lemons which are gorgeous so yeah I was super super happy with those and if you're wondering about size-wise these ones come up true to size but other ones in the past I've got ended up getting a different size so they can be a little tricky that was what I got from River and I was so excited for that in terms of other presents my friend Rima hit the nail on the head with this one and I just loved it so much she got me this hair shaped pizza cutter from Anthropologie now we had just put a piece Robin into our garden and she's been over for pizzas she knows this this is just like the perfect president it's so gorgeous I was so happy with that I got quite a lot of household presents this year actually I also got these two coasters which were also from Anthropologie from my friend Lisi and I just think these are so nice she got me too so with the idea they go one either side of a bedside table for altar glasses she knows and some of you guys might as well I'm kind of like obsessed with like guest rooms and hosting people we always have people over to stay our house so this is just so at my street put tables so they were from Lissy she also got me a bowl which is actually currently being used because my mom is downstairs we're gonna have a picnic today outside in the sunshine where hopefully there's a bit of a breeze so she's actually using that but she bought me another I like a beautiful bowl from Anthropologie as well then I also got from my mum my mum bought me these absolutely stunning antique silver vases and there's actually a set the other one is actual on the bedside table home you can't quite see it but there's a set of these and it's just think they're so pretty and she also put these lovely flowers in they are looking a little bit worse for wear now because it's been six six days since my birthday but yeah just such a lovely present I love antiques and vintage things so much my mum is the same and she is amazing at sourcing antiques and she just she goes to like antiques auctions all the time I think that's where these came from they're just so lovely and it's nice to find a pair of something antique as well because a lot of the time with pairs of beds their tables very hard to find antique ones because people lose them or break them and then you just have one so yeah that was from my mum and then other home stuff Mike's sister got me this which is actually quite interesting because I feel like you could use it separately as well but it's a heart shaped like Ratan kind of weaved basket with a glass heart shape dish in the middle actually must be so nice like for either like on display but also just like serving say bread rolls in the summer you know on the table I'm try think so you'd use it for whatever you wanted basically sweets came to mind I'm not entirely sure why um but yeah so that was really lovely that was from Mike's one sister and then Mike's other sister bought me this beautiful picture frame which is like an a distressed glass frame doesn't have a picture in it yet I'm still deciding what picture I'm gonna put in with in it and also the issue is it's quite big and iPhone pictures when you blow them up this big they're not as good quality as you would want so I'm kind of waiting to pick the right will have the right kind of standards of photo to go in this frame it's really lovely and this is like I just love this whole glass I see I mean you can see the mirror behind me it's basically the same as this so love that and then she also got me this super cute set of extra long matches which are really useful for lighting barbeque slicing piece oven lighting if you have like giant candles where they're really deep super useful extra long matches and so that was really sweet and just like a nice Mike's mom and dad spoiled me actually because this is are these are so lovely these are some Tom Ford sunglasses I've never owned a character Tom for sunglasses before and I have to say buying someone sunglasses a really tricky thing to do because I feel like not all sunglasses suit everyone you know what I mean like it I feel like a lot of the time when you're buying sunglasses you have to try them on Mike's mom like nailed it because these are tonight what do you guys think I love them I have to watch for my piercing got to be careful putting my sunglasses on so nice I haven't taken this little Dingell thing off yet I haven't worn them yet but I just think they're so like perfect I love them I love the little detail with the tee on the side super fancy super nice also really comfortable I love the kind of perspex frame sunglasses because they don't have anything that catches and they don't have the nose bit which I find quite uncomfortable sometimes so they were from Mike's mom oh another thing actually Mike's sister got me as well as the heart-shaped bolt with these little gift cards which obviously they and we should support them but yeah just super cute little note cards which I love stationery I love writing people notes and like whether it's thank you know or RSVP'ing to events and stuff I always do it in a cartoon I just love these and I love stationary in general before I melt the last present was one from Joe Malone from the actual Jo Malone team now as you guys know I work with Gemma letting a lot and I know the team very well they are possibly the nicest group of humans ever I don't know quite how they did it you know normally when you like have an office of people there's like some that are really nice and another ones that not that nice they are all the nicest girls ever they're just so lovely and they sent me this box of literally my favorite things I it's a treat to get one thing from gem alone but to get a whole box of your favorite scent I was so so excited they sent me to my favorite at the moment I do still like dark hammer and gingerly but at the moment my favorite cologne intense as their velvet rosin food really strong and like quite heady not for everybody but I loved it and they sent me the Cologne the candle the shower oil and the body oil so I'm gonna be like smelling the best out of everybody I know just I was just blown away by this so massive thank you to go and that was super super kind of them and really unexpected as well so that is it for my birthday haul video I'm gonna go and I mean maybe get under a cold shower it is outrageous but yeah I hope you guys are having a fantastic July it's nearly over howlite where is this year going I just can't even believe it yeah hope you guys enjoyed this video and I'll see Z bye

    I have watched you for years Fleur (since like 2009/10?) and love your videos! ❤️ Happy Belated Birthday! 🎉 For your cartilage piercing, I have had similar issues with healing and soaking your ear in warm sea salt water daily helps a lot! Yes it means laying sideways with your head laid against a bowl for 15-20 minutes but I promise you it helps drain the area around the piercing and reduce swelling. I discovered this treatment from a piercing website back when I had issues with my cartilage healing.

    I had heard it was over 38C in London and I thought that's crazy. Hope you survived the heat without completely melting. The vase from your mother is stunning. Does it have a glass liner. So beautiful. Hope your piercing heals quickly.

    An Iwatch and an Apple Watch are two different things.

    I had Thursday off work so I bought a tiny £5 paddling pool and sat in the garden with my feet in it. Unfortunately my children are now too old to want a pool so I had to buy myself one 😂😂😂

    It's non of my business, but what happened with the friendship with Becky? I haven't seen her in videos in years.

  • Reply Pixie Stix July 29, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    I was never successful with having a cartilage piercing until I bought an ear support pillow from Amazon. The pillow has a hole cut out out so your ear does not touch the pillow while you sleep. It made such a difference with healing! Good luck with your new piercing!

    it's really hot here too. i'm from the U.S. in Tennessee, so it's hot with some oppressive humidity on top haha.

    Oooh.. My birthday was the 14th!!!

  • Reply Kristina Rhodes July 29, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    Looooove the sunnies!! The heart glass dish is also beautiful and fabulous for entertaining. I believe its intended purpose is as a hot plate and then can be served immediately onto the table with the woven holder protecting your table. I have a similar one and I roast potatoes in it or use it for casseroles like macaroni and cheese or lasagna.

    Very short video what you got for your birthday i guess your last birthday was a big one and got more gifts. The necklace you are wearing Missoma Lucy Williams from your last birthday gift? First time see you wear. Don’t see been on sale anymore i am silver jewellery girl. Never a fan of those shoes the thread type of chunky soles material.
