A couple of weeks ago I turned 21! When asked what I wanted for my birthday, I said I didn't mind. Besides, what do you get the girl that's got all she has ever wanted? In which case everyone decided to go down the route of giving me money. I was so grateful for what I received off of friends and family. I wanted to put the money to things I really needed or things I have wanted for a while. I also treated my boyfriend to a couple of meals since he has been so good to me recently.
First of all I will start off with one of the presents I did receive and that was the Marc Jacobs Decadence perfume.
My boyfriend and I decided to go on a shopping trip to Bluewater. The first shop we went into was The Body Shop.

We then decided to go into HMV and there was one reason I wanted to go in there. That reason was to finally get my hands on Louise Live! I can honestly say I laughed all the way through this! Louise is such a down to earth person and I love how she just says it how it is. This is why it made it all the more funnier. You probably already have, but if you haven't and need a laugh go out and buy Louise Live!
Again, for the laughs my boyfriend and I decided to buy Mrs Browns Boys. For those of you who are unware of what Mrs. Browns Boys, it's a comedy about a family living in Dublin, Ireland. All of the Characters are played by family and friends. It's informal in the way that they leave in mistakes and banter between the cast.

I then also brought the Harry Potter colouring book. I can't remember how much it was, all I know is it was on deal when you spent so much. I did however find it on Amazon in case you were interested.

We walked round for a little longer and on a corner I discovered Kikki.K! I am a massive stationary fan, so you can only imagine the look on my face when I found the shop.
|Kikki.K notepad and pen|
These were the two things I brought for myself. I brought one other notepad for my giveaway. I loved the simplicity of the everyday notepad. Not only that it's bright and easy to work on. I also brought the blue matching pen. Can I just add that I am actually in love with the Kikki.K website!

I recently brought 2 Kiko Milano products for my giveaway. I then realised I never brought anything for myself to try. I found this lovely shade which was on special offer.
|Smart lipstick: 928 Peony|
This is shade 928 Peony. It was kind of an impulse buy, but when I go home and swatched the lipstick, I realised how well it went with my skin tone.

The last place I went to was H&M. I headed straight for the accessories where I found this phone case for £1! I love phone cases and I get bored very easy so I like to swap and change them quite regularly. So obviously when I saw this for £1 I had to have it.
