My 4th Anniversary Present

Hello again guys!!! I hope you all are doing well!!!

As mentioned a while ago on my previous post, bf and myself have celebrated our 4th anniversary last July. I just thought I'd share with you the present he gave me. I'm telling you, I didn't expect to get this much for the occasion but I did... bless...! He does something that surprises me when I least expect it every now and then :)

Anyway, just a little story of what happened and how I luckily got this. We were walking around town centre on his birthday (the week before our anniversary), when we visited our favourite art gallery. As we were browsing through the paintings on display we came across this and both our pairs of eyes were nailed on this particular piece. We have been looking at 'the right' painting for my bodoir that I intend to redecorate after 2014 (I've got much bigger project that I have to wait that long). I'd love to turn it a nice make up studio :) and my bf has already given me a permission to do just that. Anyway, back to painting. The gallery manager has been kind enough to get this piece (pictures below) from the basement and we looked at it for a few minutes. I remember saying... 'ooohhhh... that's beautiful!' and my bf who was sitting right behind me said... 'we're having it!'. Just like that! Well, I had a feeling that we were going to get it but not that particular moment specially that it was his day. I was absolutely happy on our way home thinking that I had my very own Fabian Perez piece. Alright, not to get too excited about it... it's not an original piece because the original one has already been sold for £18,500. So what we got is a limited print and it is hand embellished. One of these days, we do plan of getting a Fabian Perez original piece :)

Isn't she gorgeous?

At the moment, this beauty is in our living room but will be moving to my very own bodoir soon as it's redecorated.
Till next time guys...
