My Birthday Gifts

I did a 'Birthday gifts' post last year so this year I thought I would do another one. 
On 18th March it was a milestone celebration as I turned 16. I didn't do too much because it was on a Wednesday however I did celebrate with my friends; from tea parties to the most amazing McBusted concert. 

Here's what I got:

My parents got me polaroid-print-outs from a fantastic website called Polargram. You link the website up to your Instagram and you can get them printed onto polaroid prints. The pictures are crisp quality and they look very suave. I couldn't imagine them any better. Then I got The Writer's Toolbox which I haven't yet had time to properly explore but it looks awesome and I can't wait to use it to get writing. I also got Lush Shampoo Bar in Karma Komba. I love the lush shampoo bars and my current one recently broke into two so having a new and full one is great. My mum and I share this life-long love for the Karma collection in Lush so to have my hair smelling of it is a dream. Lastly, my parents got me - wait for it - an Andrew James Ice Cream Maker. Basically, my summer is going to be full of different flavours of ice cream!!

My sister works in Cos in London so she gets access to a lot of products in & Other Stories therefore,  for my birthday, she got me the Floral Memento Body Spray which smells very fresh and fitting for this particular season. 

Katie from Katie-Louu got me some sweet gifts. I got Crafting String from The Makery and a delicious assortment of Macaroons. I then also got my beloved Secret Garden Colouring Book which makes me really excited for relaxed colouring-in whilst chilling in the garden. Lastly, I received blogging phenomenon Fleur De Force's Glam Guide. This book is page-after-page of interesting tips and tricks and it is such a lovely read.

My friend Lucy (Loopyylu) gifted me two Bomb Cosmetics products: a bath bomb that smells great and a Candy Cane Candle which smells like strawberries. Furthermore, I got the famous WAH Nails Collection. This is a giant holographic box packed with WAH tools and polishes. I'm really excited to do everyone's nails with my new stuff.

Lastly, Millie from PaperStoriess gave me the My Listography Diary which is a super cool idea and I can't wait to get torn into it this summer. I got a Barry M Speedy Dry Nail Polish in Pit Stop which relieved me because I have been lusting over for  while. She gave me another Lush Shampoo bar in Lullaby with its own little tin and it is my favourite smell of them all because it is very strong of Lavender. I am hoping to do a full review of all my shampoo bars in the future. Finally, I got the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer; this is my first Soap & Glory make up product and I'm really excited to learn all about it and hopefully review it one day. 

Thanks to all the people that gave me
