It was my 18th birthday on Monday, I have been so excited for this day and it felt like I've been waiting forever for this day to come around. It has been and gone and I can truly say that I had such an amazing day and I'm so grateful for everything I got given. I personally love reading blog posts on what people got for their birthdays so I thought it'd be cute to do a blog post myself in case any of you guys like seeing what I got. 
(Just a quick disclaimer, I am in no way 'bragging' about what I got. I know a lot of people love reading and watching blog posts/videos about what others got for there birthdays, I'm just showing you mine)

My mum and dad were so generous and got me some stuff from LUSH. The first thing was a little gift box wrap up in such pretty packaging and inside was Ro's Argan Body Conditioner which I have used twice now and I simply love the stuff. The gift box also included a bar of soap called Sultana of Soap which smells absolutely amazing and leaves your entire body smooth and moisturized. I got 2 Think Pink LUSH bath bombs which I have used one of them already, and they smell amazing. They then got me my favourite Yankee Candle which is Vanilla Cupcake, which I haven't stopped burning since I opened this. I then opened 2 more presents and I was so grateful for what they both were - the first present was a bag full of Gatineau Paris skincare products which included under eye pads, makeup removers, lip restore balms, exfoliates and lightning radiance creams. The second present was a bunch of Real Techniques brushes, which included a buffing brush, contour brush, pointed foundation brush, detailer brush and a blush brush. 

Moving onto what my boyfriend got me - the first present was a LUSH bath bomb which I haven't taken a picture of because I have already used it, but it was the Fizzbanger bath bomb which smelt amazing and was really fun to use. The second was a pug tea flask which I absolutely love because I'm literally obsessed with pugs, and the third present he got me was the Fujifilm instax mini 8 Polaroid Camera in a gorgeous pastel blue colour, I was so shocked he got me this as I had no idea! He also bought 40 shots for the camera. I haven't stopped taking pictures and I just want to hang my cute little Polaroids all around my bedroom. 

My Nan got me a Pandora charm which is in a little heart and says 18 on it which was so sweet of her, she also got me the Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream perfume which I have been wanting for ages so I am very grateful. My granddad got me the Jimmy Choo perfume which I have also been wanting for a very long time, and I just couldn't believe they got me them. My auntie and uncle got me a photo album which is perfect for some of my Polaroid pictures so I was very grateful about that. 

My work friends got me some cute little presents for my birthday which was so sweet of them all. They got me a chocolate champagne bottle from Thortons which said "Happy 18th Birthday" but I don't have a picture of that because I've obviously eaten it all, woops! They got me a cute 18 birthday mug for my tea which is perfect because I do love my teas, and they also got me a cute little Yankee Candle Tea Light holder as well as some Yankee Candle tea lights in the smell Soft Blanket.

My boyfriend's family was so sweet and got me a few little bits. His Mum got me a gorgeous bag which I have completely fallen in love with, it has lovely metal detailing around the edges which gives it are more grunge look about it. Inside the bag was 3 more little presents, the first one was a cute flower mug from my boyfriend's Dad, the second present was a pretty gold necklace and a really cute little pug purse from my boyfriend's sisters. His Mum also made me the most amazing 18th birthday cake which has nearly been eaten up. My boyfriend's Nan and Grandad got me a pretty flower print throw which is the most comfiest throw ever, I have been lounging around in this all day, everyday since. 

I have one last present that I completely forgot to take a picture of because it was tucked up inside my makeup bag, but my friend and her family got me Dior Mascara and Dior Eyeliner which I was extremely happy about and I cannot wait to use that. 

I had such an amazing day and night spending my birthday with my friends and family. I am so thankful for everything I got.

Do you have a birthday coming up? What's on your birthday wish list?
