My 20th Birthday

Tuesday, 30 July 2013

Hi Ladies! It was my Birthday on Sunday so I thought I'd show you all what I got up to over the weekend and what I got. First of all this isn't a showing off post, I just like reading these posts so I thought I'd write one of my own, and my Birthday unfortunately only comes around once a year so if you don't like these posts, you won't have to read one from me for a year! 

I started off my birthday on Friday night really. I'd arranged a little birthday get together then we were all heading off the Leicester Square. I was really surprised at the amount of people who turned up to celebrate and wish my happy birthday, and it's fair to say that out little house was a bit cramped. My housemates also surprised me with a lovely cake and made everyone sing happy birthday which was really lovely of them and I really wasn't expecting it. I had a great night out and it was a great way to blow off some steam after a long week at work! I've only put two photos up from my night out as I was quite tipsy and look awful in all of the photos, these are just the best of a bad bunch! I'm with my friend from Uni on the tube :) 

On Sunday (my actual Birthday) my parents came round to drop off my cards and presents and we went out for a lovely Italian meal and it's fair to say I was waddling home afterwards! My main present which they got me was a Thomas Sabo Mickey Mouse charm for my charm bracelet, I recently started my first proper job in Marketing at Disney so it was a really thoughtful gift and I love it. My charm bracelet is kind of a little story of my life in recent years and its lovely to be able to look at my wrist and think back on some of the memories which it holds. They also got me some beauty goodies which I have yet to try out, so expect some reviews on them coming up soon! My Brother also gave me a big bottle of Malibu (my favorite drink) with a bottle of coke with my name on it so I could have a Malibu and coke (how cute!). 

On Monday I was also spoiled at work which was a huge surprise. They fooled me into thinking I was going to a meeting but when I arrived there was a pink cake and everyone was singing Happy Birthday, It was a little bit embarrassing as I'm still quite new there! They gave me a card and to my surprise, a Benefit voucher too! They have been so generous and I'm so thankful to them, but clearly they know me too well as their present was spot on! I'm thinking of using it to buy myself some treats and things I haven't tried before so please leave me any recommendations or reviews of benefit products in the comments below! 

I was truly spoilt this year and I just want to say a huge thank you to anyone who wished my happy birthday, all of your tweets were so sweet!

  4. Happy 'belated' birthday. You got some cute stuff. I bought a satchet of the macadamia hair mask such a hair saver. And smells gorgeous. I've already used it twice and can get at least two or three more goes out of it. Tempted to buy a full tub.
