What I got for my 19th birthday

What I got for my 19th birthday

Hello my loves,

The day is finally here! I am sharing what I got for my birthday. For those of you who didn’t know, my birthday was a few Sundays ago (the 4th) and while I told everyone that I had a great day, it was the total opposite.

On Saturday 3rd, I had a friend stay the night and I invited a friend and my cousin round for some drinks. While it was just the three of them plus my family, I had an amazing night, I drank a lot (which I probably shouldn’t have done) and I had plenty of laughs, by far these people are my favourite. One of my friends came straight from London after being out with his family all day to come and spend some time with me, and honestly, I am so thankful for having him as a friend. The “party” finally ended at around 1 ish and my god, I hit the bed soon after and just slept. I didn’t realise how much I had drunk until the next morning!

On Sunday (my birthday day) I woke up with a slight headache, nothing too bad, but I don’t get hangovers so I knew I wouldn’t be suffering a lot. I woke up with the left side of my mouth hurting, I thought it was just the drink I had the night before, but little did I know it wasn’t. I went downstairs and opened my presents with my family and my friend there, while it seems as though I didn’t get a lot, I received everything I asked for, so I was and still am very happy.

Here is everything my friends and family brought me:

  • Pink 1 and 9 helium balloons.
  • Magic stars.
  • A box of maltesers.
  • Haribo strawberries.
  • A dairy milk bar.
  • A chocolate chip cookie.
  • A bacon baguette.
  • Jack Wills cup and socks set.
  • 2 nail polishes.
  • 2 lipsticks.
  • 2 face masks.
  • A mirror.
  • A personal letter.
  • A Body Shop gift set.
  • A rose gold elephant.
  • Fearne Cotton happy book.
  • Fearne Cotton calm book.
  • Karen M. McManus One of us is lying book.
  • A bottle of wine.
  • A bottle of cider.
  • £10.
  • An eye shadow palette.
  • A trip to London Aquarium (soon!).

I was also overwhelmed with the amount of you lovelies that wished me a Happy Birthday, so thank you ever so much!

I also brought myself a few gifts, so here is what I brought myself:

  • A new handbag (it features in my What’s in my bag post).
  • A Birchbox (two actually, I got one for free!)
  • A make my month box.
  • A weekly planner.
  • Knee high boots.
  • 2 pair of leggings.

I spent most of my birthday in bed, drugged up and still in pain, as we now know, I could be suffering from MUMPS. If you have no idea what I am talking about, check out my “How my day has been #4” post.

I think that’s the end of tonight’s post lovelies, I hope you enjoyed reading about my birthday. Thank you to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday, whether that be before, during or after the day, I really appreciated it.

Thank you for reading, if you did enjoy my post, leave a like and tell me in the comments what you love most about your birthday. If you really enjoyed my post, it would mean a lot if you could share it with your friends.

I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow.

Lots of love,

A x
