What I got for my Birthday

It's a late-comer but I've wanted to showcase 'What I got for my Birthday' for a while... If some of you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that my birthday falls at a horrible time in the year, just 4 days after Christmas. Sometimes it's good, i.e SALES and sometimes it's bad... But this year, I had a wonderful day and got lots of goodies!




On my actual birthday, Me and Adam went shopping to the Bullring. We're both local to Birmingham originally but don't go that often anymore as Derby is closer for us. I took along my birthday money and had some money put aside for myself to pick up a few bits I knew that I wanted. Within a few hours, I'd got what I wanted and much, much more! We also went to Rub Smokehouse for lunch which was incredible where I had a double cheeseburger which was stacked between two sweet waffles and doused in maple syrup with a side of sweet potato fries (mouth is watering right now!).
Adam got me a few little treats to open up on the day of my birthday but had ordered me some trainers previously that I knew I had to wait to get. He bought me some cute blue furry slippers as mine have reached the point of no return, a couple of DVD's including 'Bad Moms' and 'The Purge: Election Year' and an amazing new yearly diary from Eccolo which has stickers in for all kinds of dates and appointments!

I got an amazing little bag full of treats from my friend at work, Becki, which included a Nutella Cereal Bowl which come with a Mini Jar of Nutella and some porridge oats (amazing!), a compact mirror in the form of chocolate, a disco ball drinks cup, a Zoella Lifestyle planner and a in-handbag accessories pack which has everything you need in your handbag including mini nail file, lip balm, clear nail polish, bobbles and hair pins!

I mainly got money from my family which I used to get myself a couple of bits with including some Muji Acrylic storage, a new highlighter from Illamasqua which is gorrrrgeous, a new coat from New Look, a new double-bobble beanie hat, some underwear and socks from Boux Avenue and Victoria's Secrets and a 100ml Bottle of Cerruti 1881 perfume. I also got myself a couple of additional bits including a gorgeous Leopard print shirt from Primark in Selfridges, some mini Instax glitter filled frames and a mirror to go in the downstairs toilet! I managed to get a few bargains from TK Maxx too that you may have seen over on my Instagram however, I've got a post coming about those but I did get my hands on these beautiful glitter Steve Maddon trainers which were only £30.00 (RRP £70!)  Along with all of this I had 4 FREE Krispy Kremes, 1 free one for my Birthday and then a voucher for any 3 others - what better treat can you get on your birthday!?
