What I got for my Birthday

If you know me personally or follow me on my social media accounts you’ll know I was super super excited for my birthday well in advance and I had an amazing day when it finally came around. I thought I’d share with you guys what I received for my birthday presents as I haven’t posted a lot recently. By no means am I in anyway trying to show off with what I received, I know some people receive a lot more for their birthday and some people get a lot less and I’m very grateful for everything that I did get.

One of my most favourite presents, and one that I’m use will be my most used present, is my Real Techniques core collection brush set. I know these have been around for a while now and I’m sure most of you already have them, but I only recently got more into using make up brushes and only had the expert face brush up until now. I’ve used all of these brushes every day since my birthday and I’m sure I’ll be using them a lot more in the future too.


I also was given several things from LUSH, some from one of my friends and others from family. As you all probably know by now I am obsessed with LUSH and I’m so happy to have received some more products as my LUSH collection was running low and I cannot stand that. I’m so excited to use these but I doubt they’ll last me long before I run out again.


As well as some bath/shower products from LUSH, I also got some bath products from Zoella’s beauty range, as well as the perfume that I have wanted to buy since it came out but every time I went into Superdrug to get it, they didn’t have any in stock. I have previously used and loved these products and I’d been running low on the soak opera and fizzbar so I’m happy I’m restocked up.


Another one of my friends bought me an amaaaaazing smelling yankee candle in the scent ‘pink sands’ and I’m absolutely in love with it. In a way I don’t want to light it because it looks so pretty in its little jar as it is but at the same time I can only imagine how amazing it will smell when it is alight. And then once I have burned the full candle I am planning on using the jar to store make up brushes or some other beauty product.


How can I not mention the absolutely crazy amount of sweets I received? It will either take me ages to eat them all or they’ll be gone in a flash and I’m pretty sure I know which it’ll be. I am planning on making some cookies with some of the chocolate.


As prom is coming up this month, my prom dress and shoes are also included as birthday presents. You may have seen my prom shoes in a previous blog post. I literally adore them and I can’t stop wearing them around the house.


And last but by no means least, my most favourite present of all has to be my meet and greets tickets for Union J, on their ‘An Audience with Union J’ tour. If you’ve read my previous blog posts or follow me on social media, you’ll know I absolutely adore these boys and I am so so excited for this event, despite it being months away. Although I have met and seen the boys live several times before, I have a feeling this will be the best since it is such an intimate event. I am so grateful for this gift and I don’t think I’ll ever get one that will best it.


So these are just a few things I got for my birthday, I haven’t include everything because some things were a bit random and others were difficult to write about. I can’t wait to buy myself some little extras to go towards my birthday presents too. Overall I had an amazing day and can’t thank my friends and family enough for making it so special. I hope you enjoyed this post!
