Nineteen


It was my birthday whole two weeks ago now, so today I figured I'd show you the gifts I was lucky enough to receive, as personally I love 'what I got for my birthday' type posts. We attempted to have a BBQ in the rain, which was interesting to say the least.. and I'm pretty sure I've had enough burgers to last me a life time! Along with cake.. Tesco had a 3 for 2 offer so my Mum picked up three birthday cakes! Never again can she judge me in Boots! 
Speaking of three for twos, I was in Superdrug with my Mum the other day eyeing up the new Maybelline lasting drama gel liner. I put it back on the stand because it was around £9 which I think quite expensive for a highstreet product, this resulted in my mum picking it back up and announcing she was going to buy it for my birthday. I'm so happy she did as I love this product and should have a review going up soon! As there was a 3 for 2 on, I had to pick two other products so I ended up getting this Maybelline superstay better skin foundation which I had a sample of and loved, along with this Max factor face finity primer. My good friend Angelica from  LFA also got me some lovely beauty goodies, including this Topshop glow stick in play up which I've been lusting after for some time now and an array of pretty nail polishes from kiko, She also got me this really pretty rose shaped lipbalm which i look forward to throwing in my bag as its really cute!
I love bath & body products so I was super excited when I opened this Laura Mercier gift set from a family friend. The set contains Laura Mercier's Crème de Pistache body wash, body cream, hand cream and perfume. I've been lusting over Laura Mercier for such a long time so expect to see some posts about this in the future!
I was also lucky enough to get a few bits of jewelry from friends including this necklace and two lovely bracelets. I was also really happy to get these really cute Disney PJ bottoms from a friend along with these pretty socks and candle which i cant wait to burn.
My Mum always tries to get me some new DVDs and books to go along side my other presents, this year she got me two DVDs; Going the Distance and burn after reading. She also picked up The Fault in our stars by John Green which I cant wait to read! One of my flatmates also brought me a Wreck this journal which I've wanted to own for years so I was super happy about that!
I'm a huge chocolate addict so was super happy to receive an excessive amount! Including a few of my favourites! I've been so busy lately that I some how have two boxes left, although that's nothing a couple of Netflix nights cant solve!
Finally I wanted to make an investment, rather than wasting my money on clothes and make up, so instead of having a shopping trip with the money I was lucky enough to be given, I put it all together and added a little of my own to buy myself a reconditioned ipad2.

So there you have it everything I was lucky enough to get for my birthday this year!

  5. I can't believe you're 19! For some reason I always had it in my head that you were in your early 20s haha That's hilarious about the cake, tbh my dad is the type to do that. These types of posts are my favourite too, along with your empties posts. :) Oooh and do you know where that necklace is from?
    Once again, I seek your advice! :p I've been searching for a lipstick like the one Kat Dennings wears in 2 Broke Girls and wondered if you had any (preferably not too pricey!) recommendations? :)

    1. Haha, I think I have a tendency to act older than I am, but I started blogging here when I was 16!
      I was a little baffled by the amount of cake, its safe to say I had a lot of it for breakfast the next day! And the necklace I believe was from Primark!
      Sadly I don't, I'm very much into my nudes - They're about 75% of my collection! Hope you find one soon though! xx
