Hi from Chicago O’Hare International Airport! I am en route to Toronto, Canada and just missed my connection because my flight out of LAX was delayed. I thought I was in shape until I ran from Terminal C to Terminal E with my duffle bag and quickly learned that I should probably change up my cardio! So here I am, writing you from Chicago while I wait for the next flight to Toronto in 2 hours 3 and a half hours 3 hours and 50 minutes (delayed again).

But what better way to pass time at an airport than posting a giveaway for my amazing readers! It is officially my birthday week! I am turning 25 on Friday, August 15th, and I am giving away 25 awesome things to one lucky reader! I’ve collected some super adorable bunny, fruit & veggie, and cooking themed items from my favorite Japanese store Daiso as well as some makeup from Butter London’s new fall collection “Brick Lane,” and an “Eat More Rabbit Food” shirt for the prize package!

    The best present I ever received was when I was about five years old. I desperately wanted a cabbage patch kid doll, so my mom made me one… Out of a head of cabbage! Complete with baby clothes, a diaper, and face! I opened the giant box and started crying… Everyone laughed! Then she told me to keep digging and there was my real cabbage patch kid. I’ll never forget it!

    The best birthday gift I got was an army charm bracelet.

    I watched over my father and took care of him for a year after high school, up to his passing. At the viewing my aunt gave me a charm bracelet that he gave her while in the army. Well, it was kind of cheap but I wore it everyday, so at college I would take it off to write in my spiral notebooks and someone stole it one day…I cried so hard for a long time about it.

    My older sister for years had been searching for one like it online and surprised me one day with almost the same bracelet (maybe a bit better quality then my dad could afford at the time). I was speechless and it’s meant the world to me ever since.

    Happy birthday-week Catherine! 🙂

    The best present I’ve ever received was a cushion when I was about 5.
    There used to be a sewing and craft shop at the bottom of our road when I was little. My Mum and I would walk past twice almost everyday; on the way to school and on the way home. In the window was a pistachio green square cushion with a frill edge. On the front of the cushion was an appliqué white rabbit. Being an Alice I am obsessed with the curious little creatures! I asked for that cushion every single day but it was quite expensive. When I unwrapped it on my birthday I had never been happier. It went everywhere with me.
    I still have it! It is torn and frayed and stored away in the attic, but I will always keep it.

All of your posts and inspiration helped me realize how unhealthy I was and how unhappy my lifestyle made me. This was during my junior year in high school and now I am currently a freshman in college. Your blog pretty much saved me from a dark road that I was entering and lead me to healthy, inspired life. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH!! NOW, my favorite birthday present was definitely my fourth birthday when my parents rented little ponies to come to my birthday party. hahaha!

    Oh gosh what a sweet gift from you! That’s so generous of you! I’m not a big birthday fan myself, struggle with celebrating my own. It’s a difficult time of year for me. But one of my favorite ‘gifts’ has to be receiving phone calls from my cousins. Every year I can count on my cousin to call me, I’ll let it go to voicemail so just so I know it’ll be recorded. He sings to me and melts my heart. But one year my other cousin (his sister) got on and tried to say my name…why is this significant and so meaningful?! They both have autism and one of them is nonverbal. It’s a huge accomplishment for both of them and means the world to me. <3

    The best birthday gift that I ever received was a box full of box from my boyfriend (now husband). They were all so well thought out including things related to all of my interests. My favorite was a child psychology book and a book called DOG JOY that had hundreds of photos of HAPPY DOGS. 🙂 Happy birthday to you, lovely lady.

    When I was a kid I had a doll named Elizabeth. She was my absolute favorite and was always by my side. My younger sister and I got into a fight over her one day and during a tug of war contest, Elizabeth’s arm ripped off. I was absolutely devastated. My 4 year old self had just lost her best friend. For my 21st birthday my Mom had her sewn back together and groomed. Hands down the best birthday present I’ve ever received!!

I think one of the best birthday gifts I received was from my cousin when I was around 7; she had a gold bracelet I really liked and she surprised me by having it cut down so it’d fit me.

    Happy birthday!!! My best birthday present was, in fact, a dinner. My mom cooked an amazing meal and my grandparents brought a cake. And it was just being there with my family and the people I loved that made it great. My grandparents are extremely old and my grandpa is battling through lung cancer, so I knew there might not be more birthdays with him after this year. It made me appreciate every little moment.

    My birthday is on Mexican’s Mother’s day! yep May 10th. So basically I except no one will remember it – bc they’re spending time with their moms and whatsoever – and usually they never do :c but this year was my 21st and one of my friends woke me up and said she was outside. I went outside and she gave me my birthday hug and then a tiny package. Inside, it was a Gift Card from my favorite store! But that’s not all! It wasn’t just her present! In the back of the card it had around 13 names! All of them had contributed to buy it! It took me by surprise!

I knew it wasn’t real but it still meant a lot! My birthday is coming up too, though, and I would kill for a decent blender so maybe that will be my new favorite?

    Happy birthday bunny, darling! I hope its your best one yet! My favorite gift would have to be a vintage Chanel clutch my Mom bought for me this year. I honestly would have loved anything she got me just as much. It was her tremendous thought and love behind it that makes it my favorite. I know it took her a lot to be able to purchase it for me and I will treasure it forever. xoxox

    Happy Birthday!! This giveaway is amazing! I’d love to win 🙂

    My best birthday gift was one I received 2 years ago (in October). My Husband and I were just about to move into our brand new house and he took me out to dinner, then to see a movie. When I thought it was time to go back to our home at the time, we took a detour to our new house. He made me close my eyes as we walked inside and when I opened them, there on the dining room table, was a giant silver bag and inside, a full size record player. I had been wanting one for so long that I was completely surprised. Then he played a record and danced with me. It was the most romantic night we had, had in a while. Simple and still one of the best birthdays ever. 🙂

    On my 20th birthday, years ago, a couple of my friends took me skydiving. I am deathly afraid of heights but I put on my big girl panties and gave it a go. It was exhilarating and so much fun! Still afraid of heights to this day, but would do it again for sure!

I spotted the gorgeously cute lampshade in Covent Garden with my sister about seven months before my birthday and she remembered and went back to get it, it was more the fact she remembered and the effort that was put in that makes that one of the best presents!

    When I was three my mom brought me to a teddy bear factory where it was literally floor to ceiling teddy bears, all kinds. Some in costumes, with props, some holding tinier teddy bears. I was immediately drawn to a small plain bear sitting on a rocking chair. I immediately loved him, but my mom wouldn’t buy him for me. Guess who showed up at my birthday party the next week? I named him Little and he still sleeps with me.

    Aloha and happy birthday(soon)! My birthday was 2 days ago. I don’t know if you’re aware of the meteor showers that are going on this week, in celebration of our birthdays, but they’re my favorite bday traditions. I’ve always gone out and watched them on my birthday. My daughter is 7 and she’s either been too small to stay up and watch, or we’ve has bad weather so she’s never seen them. We’ll, Sunday night we had perfect weather and as we stepped out of the house to watch them, my daughter saw her first shooting star! She screamed with excitement, and then another one fell! One after another, shooting stars filled the sky and my daughter was in complete awe and could not stop giggling. The funny thing, they were weak, barely leaving a tail behind them, but there were so many and my daughter was so moved by them, that I truly felt as if the night had turned magical. So that was the best birthday gift 🙂 hopefully you get to see them this week!

    The best bday gift I ever received is definitely my little puppy, Scooter. I was in a really rough place in my life a few years ago after being diagnosed with an auto immune disease ON MY BIRTHDAY and one day after being released from the hospital, my parents came home with an adorable little long haired dachshund. It lifted my spirits, got me out of the bed, and he’s been there for me ever since.

His grandma gave me the vase for Christmas last year, and it was the most thoughtful, touching thing I have ever received. It’s packed away carefully so that it does not break, but once I find a glass stand it will make its home in there. 🙂

    My best birthday gift was actually this year (my birthday was last week!). My boyfriend bought us tickets to see one of my all-time favourite bands, The Kooks. This was great because:

    1) We have a long standing joke about me missing The Kooks concert way back in 2004
    2) They were one of the bands we bonded over when we first met
    3) They happened to be playing in Toronto the night of my birthday
    4) I had no idea they were in town, so I was shocked when I opened my gift

    The best gift I’ve ever received was a little note from my mom. One day I was looking for a b-day present for a little cousin and I was in the toys section of a mall. My mother says she and I are rabbits… meaning we’re cute haha Anyway, I saw this little stuffed rabbit like those old baby dolls that you have to feed? Ok, this one was a baby rabbit quite huge I must say, and you had to feed him with a carrot. It was just too cute!! So when I came home I told my mother how cute it was. Several weeks passed and my b-day arrived. My mom had some trouble paying for a lot of medical bills for an aunt so I told her I didn’t want any present from her the year… Instead I bought her a little something from my savings to thank her for all the effort with my aunt and being a good sister to her and I gave it to her on my b-day. Later that day she gave me this little b-day paper bag that was weightless. I opened it and i looked inside and there was this note: “Exchangeable for a baby stuffed rabbit that eats carrots. Love, mom” I couldn’t help but cry… She was just so sweet <3

    The best ever birthday present I had was a soft toy lion for my 9th birthday. 20 years later I still have him sitting on my bed

    I ❤️ your blog!! My favorite birthday present I ever received was a blue beta fish from my Gummibear (grandma) when I was younger. It lived for over three years and reminded me of her each day

    My mum has a theme for my birthday every year and the best one was the mouse themed birthday. Everything was mousey. 😀

    my best birthday gift was a book the godfather by mario puzo and a bottle of thierry mugler Angel! Not because of a wow factor but because they had real personal meaning between me and the person who sent them 🙂 xxxx

    Happy birthday! Hopefully you make it to Toronto on time. In Toronto, try the restaurant Fresh (3 locations) – love their salads and juices! All happy for the bunny food pyramid 🙂 My favourite gift was a kitchenaid stand mixer! My future favourite gift will be a vitamix. Once the hubby reads my mind.

    The best birthday gift I ever received (the same one I had the first 17yrs of my life) is a call from my maternal grandmother where she would sing happy birthday to me. I’m 26 now and I’d trade any gift for one more call.

    The best gift I ever received was a vintage key from my then boyfriend, now husband! I had been to South Africa the year before and one of the people I worked with there told me that giving your child a key when they turned 21 was a symbol of hard earned independence. I loved that he not only remembered but also that he is the kind of man who respects my independence, a true feminist among men :).

    Best birthday present? A purple boombox when I was a kid. I have never been more excited for a present, ever. My 6th birthday will go down in history!

      As for best b-day presents, I had just moved to NYC to start grad school & my boyfriend, who was still in our hometown in Florida, flew in on my birthday to visit (& look for an apartment together!) Best birthday ever!

    Happy Birthday! My favourite birthday gift has got to be my 17th birthday gift of my horse Max. We have been through so so much together. It’s a gift in itself to have a horse as a best friend! X
