Birthday Wishes

 
So on the 15th it was my birthday! I had a lovely day (even though I had to go to school :|) with all my friends and family and they made it really special and I got some lovely presents.
I got some requests to do a birthday haul both this year and last as I didn't do one, but I was a bit hesitant as I don't want to appear like I am showing of. But I love reading these and so do you so many of you so I wanted to do it. I am by no means bragging or showing off and I am very grateful for everything I was given. Here we are!

My main present was a sort of re-do of my room. I picked out this lovely bedding from Ikea a few weeks before my actual birthday and my mum kept it till the day. I think this bedding is super pwetty and I just love it. I also got some plain white Ikea curtains as well :). My parents also got me the owl chalk board and the cushion (it has tea on it...... ohmygosh) as little extras just to add to my room and I think they are just the cutest things ever.
I also got the A Beautiful Mess Photo Idea Book, which I am so happy about! This is the one thing I really wanted and when I unwrapped it I did a little happy dance! I haven't completely read it yet but it is so amazing and I really recommend it. And finally my parents got me the 2 Victoria's Secret Pink Scents. For those of you who don't live in the UK, this probably isn't a big deal but There's only one in England and I went to it a few weeks ago but didn't end up getting anything :( My mum must have sneakily bought these and they smell so good!

My Grandparents and other relatives were very generous and gave me lots of vouchers and a few other little bits and bobs but my most favourites were the Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Enchanted perfume and 1984 by George Orwell (can wait to read this!)

My friends were also overly generous and got be loads of lovely stuff (most notably 5 bars of chocolate!) but my favourites were Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell (this sounds so good!) Follow Me Down by Tanya Byrne, this lovely necklace from Topshop (which I saw in the shop before and said I loved :D) and these finger moustache temporary tattoos (are they not the coolest things you ever did see). My friend also made me a Chewbacca mask. I have the best friends.

If it was your birthday recently, I hope you had a lovely day and Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoyed this post :)
