What I Got For My Birthday 2015!


I apologise for lacking in blog posts recently, I know I use this excuse a lot but I have been SO BUSY!!

On Saturday 11th July it was my birthday and I had such a lovely day and received some amazing presents which I love so I am going to share some with you.

Just a little disclaimer, I’m not trying to brag at all about the gifts I received I am so thankful for everything and thought it may interest you if I wrote a post about it!

So from my parents I actually received the Alex 6 Drawers from Ikea. You may have heard that most beauty YouTubers have the Alex 9 Drawers to store their make up but I don’t have room for the 9 drawers so I chose the 6 drawers. These are really nice and I have already filled them up!

I also got this floral Cath Kidston rucksack which I love! I actually work at Cath Kidston so I had been eyeing up this bag for a while! It is such a great day bag and is the perfect. From experience I know that Cath Kidston bags are such great quality and last a very long time.

I also got some products from Zoella’s beauty range including the two new products ‘Let’s Spritz’ Body Mist and the ‘Fresh Fizz’ fizz bar which are in the scent tutti fruity. These two products smell so summery and fresh and I love them! I also received the ‘Soak Opera’ Shower and bath cream which smells amazing.

I got the Real Techniques Travel Essentials Brush Set which is great as it comes with a multi task brush which can be used for bronzer, powder or blusher (I’m going to use for powder), a foundation or concealer brush and an eye shadow brush. This set is really great and I love it!!! It also comes with a travel bag to put the brushes in when travelling.

I also got the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in the shade Creamy Beige. I had wanted this for quite a while so I am very happy I have finally got it! This colour is so natural and would make the perfect base colour or just left on its own.

I also got The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in the shade 2. This bronzer is very natural and gives your skin a glow which I love. It is quite pale however it still shows up on my skin. I have heard really great things about this bronzer so I’m sure I will like it!

I also got the Topshop Lipstick in the shade Innocent. This lipstick has a really lovely creamy consistency and smells amazing however this shade looks a bit too “barbie” on me as I have quite olive skin. I will try and make it work with my skin by mixing it with other colours. The colour is a mix between a pastel purple and a bright pink.

I love all of my presents and I am very thankful.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Lush Oxford Street!

Hello Lovelies!

How are you? I have had a pretty chilled day which is good 🙂

Last week I had a week off school for half term and I went up to London to Oxford Street with my friend Jade. I had a really lovely day. I wanted to go to Oxford Street for a particular reason and that reason was the new Lush!

The Oxford Street Lush in London has 3 amazing floors including a photobooth! They have over 200 NEW products exclusive to the Oxford Street store. I can honestly say that it was amazing!!

I haven’t opened all of the products yet so I thought I would just go through what I bought (if you want to see what these products do look like then click on the name of the product and it will take you to a photo on Google). These are the products which I bought!

  • The Experimenter Bath Bomb £3.75 – This is a multi-coloured bath bomb and it is quite big. It does smell good but it’s not my favourite smelling product. This is the most popular bath bomb at Oxford Street. I bought this to try it and if I like it I can buy it again when I go back!
  • Intergalatic Bath Bomb – £3.50 – This is a big blue minty fresh bath bomb which is filled with glitter and popping candy! Again this isn’t my favourite smell but I thought it would be rude not to try it! I can imagine it would look amazing in the bath!
  • Milky Bath Bubble Bar £3.75 – I actually originally thought this was a bath bomb (like butterball) when I bought it but it turned put to be a bubble bar! It looks like a retro milk bottle and it doesn’t really smell of anything but I thought it would leave my skin feeling sup[er soft. I’m not sure whether I would re-purchase this as it doesn’t smell but I will just have to see!
  • Big Bang Bubble Bar £3.75 – I didn’t intend on buying this product but I smelt it in store and it smelt AMAZING so I had to buy it! I love that you can use bubble bars twice as it makes the product seem cheaper. I recommend this bubble bar and I will probably re-purchase when I go again!
  •  Floating Island Bath Oil £2.00 – I love these bath oils as they leave your skin feeling really soft and moisturised and they are only £2!!!! I think I will definitely stock up next time I go! I love the vanilla smell of this melt.
  • Mmelting Marshmellow Moment Bath Oil £2.00 – This bath melt/oil smells so good! It smells really sweet just like candyfloss and I really like this one.
  • I Am A Radiant Being Bath Oil £2.00 – This smells quite floral and is a little pink star. I bought this one to try as it smelt nice! 🙂
  • Double Vitality Bath Oil £2.00 – This is the only product that I have actually used so far! I really liked it and it left my skin feeling so lovely! I will definitely pick this one up again. This also smells really great and looks like a little star sandwich! I will leave a photo below of what it looked like.


Thank you for reading! P.s I have a very exciting post planned!
