Hey! So Thursday was my 17th Birthday. As I love to read (and watch) these tags, I thought I would show you most of the presents I received. Enjoy!

*Disclaimer – before we get into this, I would never want this to be seen as boasting or “showing off”, it is far from that; I always see these posts as being grateful for what you receive and the meaning behind them*


So my parents decided this year that I would be getting clothes, probably because they never have any idea about what to get me. I’m not going to go through all the clothes I received, we may be here all day otherwise, but one of my favourites is a Game of Thrones t-shirt; perfect for lounging around.

Skin and Nails

My Dad and my friend Kim got me some beauty products which I absolutely love. I got the “Whoosh” and “Refresher” Shower Jelly and “Bubblegum” Lip Scrub from Lush, 2 face masks; and nail polish from The Body Shop (in Frosting Fancy).

My friend Miyuki and my cousin Saya both got me handbags. The one on the left is a beautiful brown shoulder bag from New Look, and the other is from the Guess store in New York, which my cousin picked up on her travels. The good thing is that I was in need of some bags too πŸ™‚

My very good friend Charlie got me the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit. If you read my wishlist, you would have seen the Glow Kit, and that I was planning to purchase it. Well, she’s done me a favour! The swatches are so pigmented and the kit is massive, I am so grateful for this present.
