16th Birthday Wishes



So on the 15th of this month it was my 16th birthday, woop! All of my friends and family were all overly generous and I got loads of amazing presents so I thought I would share some of my favourites in a post.
As always, I am not in anyway bragging or showing off and I am extremely grateful for everything I got. I know a lot of people enjoy reading these (as do I) and last years went down rather well. 

So from my immediate family, I got quite a few lovely things. The first is a popcorn maker which isn't in any of the photographs so you will have to use your imagination, which I am super excited to use! I also got Crumb by Ruby Tandoh, which is the only thing I asked for, and I am so happy I received. Ruby was my favourite contestant form Series 4 of GBBO and her book is just wonderful, I can't wait to bake some of the recipes. I think I'm beginning to start of collection of cookbooks. The next thing is this gorgeous initial makeup bag from Oliver Bonas. I actually have a larger one, which I adore and use all the time, so I was rather excited to open this. I also got this gorgeous JuJu at Oliver Bonas bracelets with a tiny initial on (which you can't see alas), which I think is beautiful. I have a bit of a problem with single charm bracelets (my Paris one is actually disintegrating I've worn it so much). And then finally this candle. I've never realised I have a love for candles before this , as I don't really know where to by them, but I got given this de-stressing one with eucalyptus, geranium, peppermint and cinnamon one from Heaven Scent and IT SMELLS AMAZING. You don't even need to light it and you can smell it in your room. I'm addicted.

From my grandparents I got a lot of money and vouchers, which I spend on a rather large shopping trip, but also The Siege by Helen Dunmore, which looks amazing and I can wait to read. And a book of poetry. I love poetry.

I also got some unbelievably generous gifts from my friends and here are some of my favourites. Beauty product wise, I got the Lush bubblegum lip scrub which I've had my eye on for weeks, an Essie trio which includes Mademoiselle, Fifth Avenue and Mint Candy Apple and I've never tried Essie so this excites my greatly, the Benefit They're Real eye liner (which I'd never seen before but is so far amazing!) and the Soap and Glory Foam Call Body Wash which smells like heaven in a bottle. I also a beautiful butterfly garland by Sass Belle and a lovely picture frame, which I cannot wait to put in my room. I also got the socks of my dreams, I mean just look at them. The cuteness is painful. And then the most beautiful notebook you ever did see and a lovely witty little notebook which I shall ramble about how annoying everyone is, as it tells me I should. I also got a crap load of chocolate from my friends

I had an absolutely amazing birthday so thank you to everyone who made it so special. Thank you to everyone who sent my birthday messages on Twitter or Instagram, or if you said it in person, and to everyone who made me have a lovely day. I loves yous all.

Hope you a having a lovely day, hugs,
Helena x

  1. I also have the "In My Humble Opinion" notebook and it's brilliant! You got some great things. My 16th is on Christmas Eve, and my mum has asked me to think of something special that I want as a present that isn't books, and I haven't got a clue what I'd like!
    Glad you had a great birthday! xx

    1. Ahaha I can't wait to use it! I had that problem, people kept asking me what I wanted and I couldn't think of anything! I got some awesome things in the end though. I always ask for books or book vouchers, you can't go wrong with a good book :) Thank you for your lovely comment xo
