What I Got For My Birthday 2017!

In case you didn't know, I actually turned 15 on the 10th of July which was this Monday just gone. After much uming and ahing about it, I have just decided to show you what I got in a blog post since it was requested, and personally I love reading these posts. I am not trying to brag, I feel so incredibly lucky for everything I received whether it was a lovely message from one of you guys, a card or even a present so with that out of the way, I am just going to start.
Before I start, these are the presents from my parents and at the end a few from my friend because off the rest of my family like brother, grandad, uncles and aunties, I just got money and vouchers which I am super grateful for so you might see a haul or I might be able to save it (very slim chance).
I am not doing this in any particular order but I got a curling wand from Babyliss, which I am super excited about because this is my first proper curling wand so I am super excited to get those beachy waves going on for summer.
A huge suprise I got was a Dyson Hairdryer, these have always fascinated me because of how they work, but I definitely did not expect to get one so I am so super gr
I then got the new Zoella Book Club collection just because I wanted some new and different books to read over summer and I thought that this one contained a great range. This collection is also such a bargain so I am so happy I got it. 
Another book I got, was the Naya Rivera Sorry Not Sorry book, I love Naya, she was an actress on Glee and I have just always admired her. This is her biography and I was just so intrigued to read it because she is super honest and there have been very controversial things that she has done which I was just super curious to read about so I am super excited to give this a read.
Onto some clothes, which I appologise, you can't see very clearly. I got a t-shirt dress from Boohoo in this beautiful nude and black print which I am so in love with. Currently, I have a bit of a love for t-shirt dresses and so I am sure I will wear this one loads.
I then got a pair of joggers from Missguided but they are those joggers that are quite stylish and you can get away with wearing out. For something more dressy, I think that these would look great with heels but day to day for something casual, I think they would look great with a cropped top and some converse.
Another item of clothing I got was a Calvin Klein t-shirt. I love the print on the front of this because it incorporates a little colour and I think it is a super basic piece that would just look great with jeans and trainers.
Just a few more clothes, I got a Calvin Klein Vest which I am so in love with. I have been looking at these for ages but the price tag always put me off but I am so grateful I got one for my birthday. The shape of this is super flattering and perfect for summer, it is slightly cropped and it fits exactly how I wanted it to. I also got it in black, which is perfect because it will go with everything.
I then got a pair of Gym Shark High-Waisted Leggings because I have been wanting a pair of Gym Shark Leggings for the longest time so I did ask for them and they are so perfect. They fit like a glove and they are so flattering on, I definitely think that these are a new favourite for the gym and definitely a boost for my motivation. Again in black just so that it matches everything.
Another gym piece I got was a sports crop top from Boohoo, but I sadly don't have much to say about this because it is too small so I haven't had the chance to wear it, but it is a lovely design and I am still super happy that my parents thought to get me this.
Final clothing piece I got was a new coat from Boohoo, my parents bought this specifically for when I go away at Christmas (won't say too much just yet) but I am so in love with it. This is so flattering on and it is the perfect coat for me come autumn and winter.
A pair of shoes I got for my birthday were a total surprise but yes, I am kind of obsessed. My parents treated me to the brand new Ugg Pumps which I just think are absolutely stunning. Apparently they have only been out for a week or so, and so I feel so lucky to have them and I just know that I am going to wear these loads. I am also super happy that my parents got them in black and nude because they will go with anything and I don't really own a black pair of shoes (can you believe it) so I am super happy.
I am going to be super brief with the makeup just because there is a lot of it and I am pretty sure that I am going to be reviewing most of it, if not all of it.
- LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation (in Fair)
- Real Techniques Sponge set
- Real Techniques Prep Set
- Bare Minerals Glosses (in Far Out and Groovy)
- Urban Decay Self Adjusting Primer
- Jeffree Star Summer Chrome Liquid Lipstick (in Butt Naked)
- Jeffree Star Summer Chrome Lip Ammunition (in Skin Tight)
- Jeffree Star Summer Chrome Skin Frost (in Crystal Ball)
- Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick (in I'm Nude)
- RCMA Not Colour Powder
- Buxom Lip Creme (in White Russian)
- Makeup Geek Foiled Eye Shadow (in Luna)
I then got a piece of jewelry, which were these beautiful hoop earrings from Beaverbrooks. These are so dainty and I love how they are white gold because I find that so flattering on my skin tone. I know that I will wear these loads so I am super grateful for these.
My parents then did me a Colourpop order which was so lovely of them and obviously I will do a post on everything about the products, but you can see from the picture what I got. I am so super grateful for these because I know all of the fuss my mum (especially) went through to go and get this so I am so super happy with this.
They then put the Colourpop stuff in a watermelon glass cup and a watermelon mug, which if you know me, you know I love anything with watermelons on so this was such a cute touch. If you were wondering, my parents got them from Asda and they are so super cute.
Off my best friend, Penny, she suprised me and treated me to the NikkieTutorials X Ofra Highlighter in Everglow. Obviously, it is only right I do a review of this so you can expect it soon but I am so grateful for this. It has always been something I have wanted since it came out but I could never bring myself to buy it. Thank you so much Penny!
Off my other best friend, Sophie, she got me some Yankee Candles, a Body Shop Body Butter in Mango and my favourite, Chocolate Orange. This was such a thoughtful gift and I love everything so thank you Sophie. Also there is no photo of this because I got it a day after taking these photos.

Once again, thank you everyone for a lovely day!
What review do you want to see first?
