Good afternoon lovelies! After a lovely birthday weekend I have come back down to earth! My birthday weekend has been one incredible weekend and I'm so thankful to all my family, friends and wonderful boyfriend who well and truly spoilt me. On Friday 10th January, I turned 20 years old which was kinda scary, there's no going back to being a teenager any more and responsibilities and adulthood seem to come hurling at me!
On the Friday my Mum and I went to Bicester Village which is a designer outlet and all the items in the shops are a lot cheaper than what they cost in the regular shops. Mum and I shopped and ate until our bodies hurt! In the evening my boyfriend, Tyler, took me to my favourite Chinese where we had a lovely meal and spent the rest of the evening together. Saturday was Tyler's Mums birthday and his family and I went to our local Cosmos restaurant. If you haven't been to a Cosmos near you, you NEED to! It's an all you can buffet with nearly 300 dishes including dessert! And it's all different types of cuisine from Chinese to your typical English Roast Dinner and Thai, it's incredible! Finally, on the Sunday, I had a large family meal at Prezzos followed by an open house for tea, wine and birthday cake in the evening! It literally was such an incredible weekend and I was also spoilt and showered in gifts!
Firstly, perfume, bath and body and girly bits! Everyone knows how much I love bath smellies so I wasn't short of any this birthday followed by my favourite perfume at the moment, the Lady Gaga Fame perfume which smells divine! Candles and nail polish are also a big hit with me. I'm basically just a lover of anything girly!
Miscellaneous presents included my favourite TV show cook book from The Great British Bake Off, I can't wait for the new series to start again in the summer after watching the Sport Relief episodes! Katie Piper is also one of my idols and I'm beginning to learn so much from her, especially when it comes to positivity.
My Mum chose well when she picked the gold chunky chain for me from Accessorize! I've never been one for watches, partially because I feel that they just don't suit my small wrists, however, I just fell in love with this one and my Granny brought it for me.
Clothes are always essential at any birthday or Christmas!
The remainder of the Alcohol left! I can't wait to try the cocktails! When I'm out I'm not really adventurous with trying new cocktails as I feel as though if I don't like it I've wasted that money - I can be quite tight, haha!
Whilst shopping I treated myself to a gorgeous Ted Baker purse and Vivienne Westwood bracelet which I couldn't resist, I think we all need a little bit of something special in our lives!
Other presents which I didn't photograph were things like money and vouchers. There were also presents which I couldn't photograph such as Tyler surprised me with a trip to London to go one the London Eye, followed by the London Zoo and lastly a stop off at the Ice Bar, all things which I've talked about in the past and said I wanted to do, and it shall all be taking place this coming Saturday, I'm so excited, it feels like it'll be my birthday all over again! And finally, my Dad and Step Mum have paid to put Tyler and I up in the Marriot Hotel by Gatwick airport the night before we fly to Corfu as our flight is at 6 o'clock in the morning we were worrying about what to do and the costs of it all. Teamed up with my Mum there's also dinner and breakfast too! Which is hugely generous of them all. In fact all my friends and family have been so generous, I actually can't believe how lucky I am to be surrounded by such lovely people in my life and hopefully I'll have many more birthdays to celebrate with them all!
