Wales

Hello everybody! 

This is another very overdue post (this is the last one, I promise!) but during the last few weeks of the summer holidays (I told you it was overdue!) I went to Wales with my family for a week and stayed in a house in Pembrokeshire. We spent a lot of time walking on beaches and coast paths, pottering around towns and we also went on a boat ride on one of the sunnier days! The place we were staying at and the places we visited were all so beautiful- so I thought I'd show you a few of my favourite pictures from the week.

 Thanks for reading!

Have you ever been to Wales?

Birthday Goodies

Hello everybody!

I'm sorry for not having blogged for a while- but seeing as I have just started sixth form, everything is a little hectic (and very exciting) and I am also having to borrow my Mum's computer, as my laptop's fan decided to break on me a few days ago. Anyway, it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was about time I did a rather overdue post on the amazing gifts I got from my family and friends! I would just quickly like to say that I am so grateful for all these gifts and that I'm not bragging in any way, but I personally love reading these type of posts (probably because I'm extremely nosey) and I know that any make-up or clothes lovers may be interested in seeing what I got! I'll try and put links to everything below, in case you're interested in something!
 
 
 Starting with clothes, my two main presents from my family were these two gorgeous coats! I always find myself without a warm coat at this time of the year, when its starting to get colder here in the UK, so this parka (which is from ASOS) seemed like a very good thing to put on my list. As you can see, it comes with a faux fur hood and a fluffy inside which is perfect for the colder months!
The second, less practical, coat is from Missguided. It's not as warm as the parka but its pink and beautiful and I couldn't resist it!
Moving on to more random bits and bobs- I got this Fairy Dust candle from my Mum which smells amazing! You can find this on amazon.
 
From my best friend, Eleanor, I got this gorgeous frame which she had filled with some of my favourite pictures of the two of us from our holiday to Italy! I think this is such a thoughtful gift and I've been meaning to put some pictures around my room for ages so I absolutely love this! She also got me some chocolates (which were eaten immediately!) and some things for my room.
 
Onto beauty related things- I got some beautiful Essie nail varnishes from a few of my best friends. The blue-y grey shade on the left is called cocktail bling and the pinky shade on the right is called eternal optimist.
 The same friends who got me the nail varnishes, Olivia and Ciara, also picked out these two beautiful mac eyeshadows! They both chose two perfect shades for me, that I know I'm going to get loads of wear out of. The shimmery pink shade is called gleam and the bronze shade is (fittingly) called bronze!
From one of my closest friends, Cherie, I  received the Revlon Lip Butter in the shade berry smoothie which I have been meaning to try out for ages! She also very kindly got me a beautiful L'Oreal eyeshadow which will no doubt be featuring on my blog very soon!

I haven't included everything, to avoid a very photo heavy post, but from my Grandma I got some beautiful things for my room and my Mum and Dad very kindly picked out some Lush things for me. (I might do a lush haul later on to show you those things!) 

I hope you all enjoyed this post, have a good week! :)

My Sixteeth Birthday

Hello everybody! 

Yesterday I finally turned sixteen! It was probably the best birthday I've ever had- as my friends came over during the day and then we all got dressed up for a meal at Prezzo in the evening. I'm sorry if this post is a little photo heavy but I really wanted to show you all my outfit and also some snaps of the day!

Dress- Missguided
Shoes- New Look




Thank-you all for reading! 
ps. I'm sorry about the layout for some of the pictures- I realise some are a little to the side and not quite in line, I think blogger might be playing up for me!
