Hi guys, I'm so excited to share this post with you because I am feeling so grateful and lucky rn to have such wonderful people in my life, they truly made me have the best birthday ever.

On Thursday 15th September, I set off to Leeds to meet up with my fave gals to celebrate my 20th birthday, and well, there was an unexpected turn of events...

Me, Holly, Natasha and Mariam decided to meet up for my birthday, we're all really indecisive people so tbh I had no clue what we were doing, I just guessed a meal and some drinks, yano the usual. Our group chat wasn't the most active that day, the girls said they needed more time as they wasn't ready to meet, and that they'd meet us in Leeds, so Holly and I waited in Yates for them, and I happily sipped (or downed) my strawberry Daiquiri cocktail. I was so scared Tash and Mariam wasn't going to come, I wasn't sure where they were, or what they were doing.

Then Holly (who knew what was going on) suggested we all meet in Alchemist, so off we went to sip (deffo down) another Daiquiri in one of my fave bars, and alas there they were, sat at a table that was full of pink confetti, personalised cupcakes on the table, and bags of presents on the floor. They filled me in how they had been in Leeds for a while, setting everything up, and safe to say I was struggling to hold back tears, I genuinely could not believe it, it was the single most loveliest thing that someone has ever done for me, I cannot thank them enough.

We had a lovely time catching up, I had another amazing cocktail, this time it was bubblegum with popping candy sprinkled round the rim of the cup! The bartender gave me a free shot, it was some kind of raspberry liquor, but he piled it high with cream, and sprinkled something on top, tbh I had no idea what it was, but everyone was watching so I had to put my game face on and neck that shot back, it deffo wasn't 'down in one', it was a hard bugger to shot with all that cream, lols life problems.

Afterwards we went to Bibi's, somewhere I've wanted to eat at for the longest time, as if you know me (obvs my gals do so well) I loveeee Italian!! We walked in, and there were the birthday balloons that I've always wanted on the table, I couldn't have been happier!! I got another strawberry Daiquiri lols, and a vodka and lemonade for good measure, and tried to wolf down a lasagne, but obvs we'd all had one of those cupcakes beforehand, so I was extremely full, and then the lovely staff brought me out a cupcake with chocolate sauce and a sparkler fizzing away on top, bcos I'm polite I had to try demolish that too.

I really wanted to show you all the presents because they're amazing, and then when I got home I had Holly's to open, so the night kept getting better!

Tash and Mariam spoiled me with such wonderful gifts, there were beautiful personalised cupcakes, chocolate and vanilla, that said Happy 20th Birthday Becky on them, which was so thoughtful I can't even.

They were spot on with everything, I collect mugs, so what better than this Queen Bee one with gold detail on it? It instantly reminded me of Blair Waldorf, because she is the true queen B.

Lush is one of my favourite shops, nothing beats a good Lush bath, so they bought me the Intergalactic bath bomb, which is one of my all time faves, and Butterball which smells heavenly! They got me a huge badge, a card that describes me all too well, and of course the fab balloons.

They didn't stop there though, oh no, they gifted me a Thornton's chocolate heart that reads Happy Birthday Becky, and some fabulous fudge!!

And lastly, they blessed me with something from Beauty Bay...the box with the adorable pink ribbon on it was too much...A MORPHE PALETTE! It's the 35T one, and it is all kinds of perfection, seriously the colours are beautiful, it's perfect for Autumn, and they are basically the only shades I wear, so I couldn't have asked for a better eyeshadow palette really.

When I got home, I opened Holly's presents, and she kindly gifted me three amazing things, I can't get over how well she knows me too! She bought me a book called The Singles Game, I'm a huge bookworm, so this was a perfect gift, she said it had something to do with blogging in it too, so it was so lovely of her to pick that up for me!! She also got me a huge tin of vaseline, bcos need I say it again? I'm addicted to that stuff. And lastly, she got me a gorgeous evening bag that comes with a ROLLERBALL (always wanted one of those, much excitement) perfume, and a lipgloss, it's absolutely beautiful!

I had the best birthday ever thanks to my fave girls, I couldn't stop telling people what they had done for me, and couldn't get to sleep all night because I couldn't stop thinking about the day, it was absolutely incredible, and I cannot thank them enough. I dunno how I'm gonna top this for their birthdays... hahaha. Srsly, if you're reading this girlies I actually love you so much!!!

Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday too, that was so kind of you!!! XOXO B.
