What I Received For My 21st Birthday!

Friday, 10 August 2012 12:45

Hello! I turned 21 on Wednesday and thought I would write a 'what I got for my birthday post' for those of you as nosy as me out there! I know there are often mixed opinions about this type of post, so I will start by saying I am not bragging about what I received as gifts at all- I feel very lucky and grateful and simply enjoy sharing things I love on my blog. I know I love to read other people's birthday posts and so I thought I would share my own with you :) I won't write about every little thing, as for one I received a huge amount of chocolate and sweets haha!

The main present I got off my parents was this gorgeous Radley handbag! I have never owned a designer handbag and have lusted over Radley for ages. I had no idea I was getting this and can safely say it was love at first sight. I believe this bag is called a Radley 'Whitmore Punch Hobo-Bag', but I have struggled to find much information online about it. I love the cute cut out Radley dogs all over the front! I also received the necklace in the image below off them (among chocolates and other things!) which is from accessorize- possibly the cutest necklace in the universe!?

My sister put together a lovely little hamper of things, every little thing I loved and it shows she knows me too well. There was more in the box but I have photographed a few of the things she put in it separately so that you can see everything properly. In the photo above is a lilac/purple Rimmel Glam Eyes Eyeshadow, some Percy Pig sweets (my all time faves), a Cath Kidston badge with the cutest dog on it ever and some Paperchase bumble bee drawing pins! Below are the final two things I received from my sister, a pair of perfect high-waisted mint/brown spotty shorts and a double necklace with different coloured chains and cute charms.

Below are a mixture of things from a few different people. My lovely boyfriend bought me the novelty socks (it seems to be a tradition of ours haha), a Lush bath gift set, a chicken print apron (don't ask!) and other things not pictured like fudge and biscuits! My main present from him is something I will talk about further down this post. My Step-Dad bought me the Barry M 'Coral' nail polish, the French Manicure set and the two nail foil sets. It is so lovely of him as he picked them all out himself, I was so impressed! The Sunflowers perfume is one of my favourite perfumes, bought by one of my fantastic pals.

My boyfriend's Mum always spoils me rotten and this occasion was no exception! She bought me the MAC Eyeshadow Pro Palette with space for 15 shadows (!!!) and 4 different shadows to go inside. My boyfriend picked the colours and he certainly chose well...

The colours he chose were L-R: 'Trax', 'Sumptuous Olive', 'Humid' and 'Woodwinked'. To say I was excited is a massive understatement! It is safe to say I will be posting about these in more detail at some point soon.

The final thing I will show you is the main present from my lovely boyfriend of 6 years, Daniel. He bought me a Chamilia charm bracelet and the purpley-blue iridescent glass bead in the image below! It is so beautiful and I feel incredibly lucky. The cat charm in the center is one I bought myself and the orange/white glass bead on the right was bought by Daniel's sister, which was so nice of her!

I received so many lovely things besides what I have shown you also, I feel so lucky! I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoy reading other bloggers' birthday posts. Thanks for reading!
