What I Got For My Birthday

It was my birthday on the 4th June which was during exams but I thought I’d post this anyway because I love reading these posts and watching these type of videos on YouTube. I’m just a bit nosey really!

Pandora Grand Pearl Ring

I got this from my Mum and Dad for my birthday as they wanted me to have something special for my 16th that I could keep forever and I really love it, pearls are my favourite stone.


Topshop Straw Hat

This was also from my Mum and Dad but was an impulse buy when my Mum and I were shopping on my birthday. I love it and I think it looks great with a denim skirt. A lil’ bit 70’s maybe?

Jack Wills Ledram T-shirt

I got this t-shirt from my auntie and uncle as they know that I love Jack Wills. I really like the vintage casual vibe they have and this t-shirt is no exception. So soft and comfy!

Jack Wills Fullford T-shirt

This is also from my auntie and uncle and is also a really soft and comfy basic t-shirt but is a slightly brighter colour, pink! I’m usually reluctant to go for colour unless it’s blue but I really love this and I think it goes quite nicely with my hair colour. (If I do say so myself)


Jack Wills Oxnam T-shirt

Again from my auntie and uncle, and also so soft and comfy but this one is less casual because of the flower cutout detail at the hem on the sleeve and waistline but I think it’s super pretty. Mine is actually in white but you can see the detail better on the blue.


NYX Glam Liner Aqua Luxe in Nude

This was from my friend Holly who loves it and so gave it to me. I haven’t tried it yet but it looks so pretty!


NYX Hot Singles Eye Shadow in J’adore

This is such a pretty colour and such a good quality eyeshadow, so creamy and pigmented. I love it! This was also from Holly.

Oliver Bonas Gold Alphabet Letter

This was from my friend Emily who knew I’d had my eye on this since last year after seeing that Zoe (Zoella on YouTube) had them in her living room. It is so beautiful and adds a really special personal touch to a room.


V&A Fashion Timeline Journal

This was from my friend Izzy and I love it. It’s such a good idea and I’m obsessed with the decades so it was perfect. I especially love the fact you can draw your own ideas on the pages next to the images in the book. Izzy also gave me some chocolate but I have already eaten that… obvs

Pylones Berlin Scarf

As you know I went to Berlin earlier this year and my a friend that came with me, Caitlin, gave me a scarf with lots of Berlin landmarks on it and I love it. The colours go beautifully together too.

MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy

This was from my chum Freyr and I totally wasn’t expecting it. It was such a nice surprise and it was in a colour I had wanted for such a long time!

Disney Mickey Mouse Hands Tote Bag

This was a present from my friend Amy and I love it. I collect Disney things and I definitely have an obsession and this is such a nice classic Disney item. Amy also made me a kilner jar with the dry ingredients for fudgey brownies which I made the other day and they were so delicious!


Primark Light Up ‘A’

This was from my friend Holly (a different Holly) and was such a nice present idea. I absolutely love how it looks in my room and goes really well on my chest of drawers with the other ‘A’.

Primark Pink Grapefruit Candle

This was also from Holly and it smells delicious! It’s sweet and fruity and it burns really well and really evenly!


That was everything I got for my birthday. Thank you so much to everyone who gave me presents, I love everything and I’m so grateful, so thank you.

Thanks for reading.

Love, Alice x


My Lipstick Collection

I would probably say that lipstick is my favourite thing about makeup, it just completes a look. I only have a few lipsticks in my collection but I thought I would share them with you anyway incase you were interested.
