WHAT I GOT FOR MY 25TH BIRTHDAY

I cannot believe we're in March already and my birthday was over a month ago! I don't know why but 2019 is going SO fast. Anyway, although we're a month late I thought I'd share with you what I got for my 25th birthday.

I got so many amazing things from my family and friends and am so grateful for everything I received! I started my birthday weekend with a surprise trip to Oulton Hall spa for a relaxing spa day complete with massages and a swim courtesy of my lovely boyfriend. He also treated me to dinner at a gorgeous Chinese restaurant called Tattoo in Leeds which I'd definitely recommend, the food was SO good.



I think I'm a very easy person to buy presents for because I literally love makeup and stationary so if you give me a notebook and some new beauty bits then I'm a happy girl! A put a few things on my birthday wishlist and was lucky enough to receive pretty much everything on it so I am very excited to put everything to good use.

First off, my mum and dad bought me a multi pack of Ardell lashes which I was over the moon with. I love wearing lashes and if I could wear them everyday for work I certainly would! This set has a variety of styles of lashes and there is something for literally every occasion. It's the perfect gift for a beauty lover. I also received a huge bottle of the Clarins milk cleanser which my mum has used for years. I've always stolen it when I've gone home to visit my family and so I thought it was the perfect thing to add to my wishlist. I love using this on my skin as I suffer with sensitive and dry skin and this is perfect.

Of course my birthday wouldn't be complete without some form of stationary. My mum and dad bought me a cute personalised diary which will be perfect for documenting all my blogging deadlines! I also got a Yankee candle which has come at perfect timing as I have burnt SO many candles during the colder months! I also got a variety of bath bombs from my boyfriend as he knows how much I love a pamper evening and he gave them to me early so I could have a relaxing bath ahead of my birthday meal (he's too cute)!

Last year for my birthday Jay bought me a black quilted handbag and I've literally used it every day for the past year and when it broke I could've cried because the brand had discontinued it but Jay took note and he bought me a very similar one and I legit love it so much! He also bought me the most gorgeous dainty rose gold watch with a blue face from Sekonda. I love the look of the navy blue and rose gold and I've worn it every day since! I also got a new marble IPAD case as my old one was falling to pieces and I needed a new one!

If you know me, you'll know I'm a BIG fan of Mrs Hinch. I've been obsessed with cleaning ever since I discovered her instagram a couple of months ago and she's done SO amazing! Because I'm so obsessed with her account my boyfriend and work colleagues took note and got me some amazing 'Hinch' themed gifts! I got a personalised hinch basket full of lots of hinching products and a personalised Zoflora bottle from my work colleagues and Jay got me another Minky and Mrs Hinch's book on pre order which I cannot wait to receive in April! I was honestly so buzzing when I saw my hinch box, love it! I'm so excited to buy a house this year  but I'm more excited to find a hinch cupboard and turn it into narnia (if you know, you know!) I'm also obsessed with organising so Jay bought me a Minky Hair styling station so I can keep all my hair tools in one place and tidied away!



My nana bought me a gold old Primark voucher which I think I spent the day after receiving it. Can't go wrong with a Primark voucher. I live in that shop! My sister is treating me to a beauty treatment before the Grand National in a few weeks and my aunty and uncle bought my sister and I a spa day trip with prosecco and lunch so we can't wait to use that during the Easter holidays!



I love everything I received so much and cannot wait to use everything. Thank you so much to anyone who bought my something or wished me a happy birthday!
