16th Birthday

Hello everyone! Today I've got a pretty exciting post for you, well for me it is exciting. Yesterday it was my 16th birthday! eeep, it sounds so strange saying that i'm 16, the years have literally flew by! I had a really good birthday as a whole, I woke up bursting with excitement by about 7am like always. I didn't do anything special, my mum kept pestering me because she wanted to take me to a restaurant for a big slap up meal but that just isn't my thing. So, we went to McDonalds haha! Then my best friend slept over. I thought i'd share with you most of the things I received for my birthday, like people always say in these posts, I'm no way bragging. I am so so thankful for and love every single present I received. 

Cupcake baking book, The Fault in our stars - John Green, Wreck This Journal, 16 mug with hot chocolates and marshmallows, Maltesers. 

I've been really into baking and making different things lately so I loved receiving the baking book and getting inspiration as to what flavours compliment each other. I've heard so much about "The Fault in our Stars" so I had to get it, I'm already on chapter 2 and I'm loving it! I gave my best friend a wreck this journal for her birthday in January so I was so happy to receive one. Who doesn't like some hot chocolate and maltesers?! Exactly!

Soap and Glory Hand Food and Sugar Crush Body Wash, St  Ives Facial Scrub, Nip + Fab winter cherry collection.

I absolutely love all things Soap and Glory so I was very happy to receive these. Also i've been looking at the St Ives facial scrubs for ages but never got round to buying one so I asked Mum if she'd purchase it for my birthday which she did. I've heard so many good things about Nip + Fab so i can't wait to try these out for myself.

L'oreal eyeshadow - platinum beige, Maybelline colour tattoo - Eternal Gold, Maybelline Baby Skin, L'oreal True Match foundation.

I didn't ask for many make up items as I didn't feel the need too. I love the colour tattoos and the more neutral colours so i picked up this gold one, I've heard so many mixed reviews on the Baby Skin so I had to try it out for myself. Also I am a complete foundation junky and had heard so many great things about this foundation that I had to pick it up. 

Talking Buzz Light year, New Look gift card, Calender block.

This might seem like a strange gift but for me it isn't, I am obsessed with Buzz Light Year and always have been. So receiving this was amazing because it talks and everything! My brother got me a New Look gift card and these super cute calendar blocks.

That's most of the things I got for my 16th birthday, I also got a few clothing items but i'm terrible at making them look nice in photographs haha woops!
