Hey everyone!! Guess who's twenty years old. Yh me, can't quite believe it either. I don't know how to adult, so pls leave tips in the comments, cos I swear I'm actually still ten years old.

I am so excited about the lovely gifts I received for my birthday, I can't thank everyone enough!

Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday, and thank you to my aunty, grandma, nan and grandad, grandma and grandad, mum and dad, uncle, and boyfriend for giving me money, and thank you to everyone for all the lovely cards and gifts!

From my mum and dad I received two books (they know me so well), they bought me The Widow, and Missing, Presumed, I absolutely love thrillers, so I am extremely excited to read these! They also bought me a matching notebook and phone case from PaperChase (one of my fave shops), I can't stop buying notebooks from there, I have way too many, but look at how cute this one is, and the phone case is gorgeous! My sister gifted me a cute hanging sign that says 'people come and go but a sister and her wardrobe are for life', and tbh that's a pretty accurate quote am I right?!

My grandma bought me some Prosecco, so on my next night out I'll deffo be cracking that open, seen as Italy converted me to a wine lover (thanks to Shannice). My aunty Chloe kindly got me the most prettiest silver ring, I'm absolutely in love, rings are my favourite go-to jewellery pieces. Another amazing present from my mum and dad were two items from Lush, I received one of my favourite hair masks, the H'Suan Wen Hua hair treatment which is to help nourish, strengthen and restore hair! And they also picked me up a new shampoo bar! I've been absolutely fanatic over the Jason and the Argan Oil one for a while now, so I'm excited to try a new one, this one is the Seanik bar for buoyant and beautiful hair! 

My grandma bought me some chocolate, because again, I'm known so well. She also picked me up some body sprays, a gorgeous blue necklace (so in love with blue jewellery) and the cutest strawberry keyring that transforms into a bag. 

My grandma also bought me the most beautiful bag I've ever seen, and it gets even better... she got me the matching purse too! River Island do the best purses and bags in the world! To top it off she also got me a rose gold mirror with my initial on it, and it matches perfectly with my bag, it even comes with its own pouch, which is so handy!

The photos don't do it justice, but it's a lot more pink, with silver and gold detailing, and there is a lot of different textures to it, including suede sides, and of course the snakeskin effect handle, it really has it all going on.

I was also treated to some lovely items from Pandora, which is always exciting!! There were only two charms I wanted on the website and I received both of them which is so lucky, and I have always wanted some Pandora earrings, so I was super grateful to open the little black box and see those little pink beauties staring back at me!! My grandma bought me the camera charm, which is perfect because I love photography, and my sister's other present to me was the I love reading charm, which I absolutely love because I'm a huge book worm and I wear glasses! Inside the charm it also says 'ignore the things you have to do and just enjoy a book or two', could that get any cuter?! My mum and dad bought me the gorgeous earrings, I love them!

Now moving on to what my boyfriend bought me! He also treated me to a lovely birthday dinner, is taking me and my sister to Adrenaline International (much excitement), and we are off to Manchester soon (I won a free night stay in a hotel) so I'm so excited!

I have wanted this gorgeous glasses case for a while now, the colour is beautiful, and I love what it says, as tbh I am a genius. I also put these two books on my wish list, as I've heard soo many good reviews about them, I've never read a book by Giovanna Fletcher so I can't wait, and obviously I wanted the book Billy and Me because our lads called Billy. He also surprised me with a really thoughtful present, it's a book called 'Anxiety, Panicking About Panic', it means the world to me that he bought me a really helpful and thoughtful present.

Billy also got me the Lush hair treatment I love, and the Mint Julips lip scrub, which is amazing!! He also got me a mirror that looks like a tiny macbook, it's the cutest thing ever I can't get over it! I love a good pamper, so I picked out a face mask, foot cooler (which I've never heard of before) and a foot scrub. I've wanted a Tangle Teaser for so long, after hearing so many Youtubers' rave about them, so Bill got me one in the most gorgeous colours!

Bill also got me a Cadbury Milk Tray selection, our fave chocolate cake (pls try this with vanilla ice-cream or double pouring cream, it's unreal), and a gorgeous mason jar with a pink top. He said he didn't want to just give me an empty jar, so he filled it with sweets, tar babes.

Lastly, he bought me a huge bunch of flowers, they are so, so pretty, I'm absolutely in love, there's something amazing about having flowers in your room, it makes me so happy!

I had a lovely birthday, and received the most wonderful gifts, if you'd like to see more birthday hauls let me know in the comments below, as I will be going shopping soon with my birthday money! XOXO B.
