My 17th - new belongings

I apologise for the photo heavy post but you may or may not know that I turned 17 on Friday. I got some wonderful things and am so so grateful for everything! My main present was that little envelope from my mam and dad, first things first I'm definitely keeping that envelope, my mam and dad got divorced when I was very young so I haven't had anything signed from the two of them in a very long time, it's the small things. Inside that envelope is a voucher for 10 driving lessons, yay! I can't show you it as it has my full name and local town on it but I cannot wait to start driving, my little blue Corsa came to live at mine on Friday which was so exciting. I have already booked my theory and just want to start driving now! The gift voucher next to it is to get my nails done if you were wondering. I feel like I should just explain a few things haha, the little empty bottle in the third photo is a refillable perfume roller ball which will come in so handy to throw in my bag, the ring is a gorgeous silver ring with a topaz from my grandma and the thing with the fairy is a lovely belly bar. I got my Casio, aaah! I was so happy, I absolutely love it, also, I finally own the real techniques core collection which I'm so pleased about, I can't wait to use them! In the photo with those brushes, the Hawaiian tropic SPF was a freebie thrown in from ASOS when my Casio was bought and the two pink bottles are a shower gel and body lotion which came with my Britney Spears fantasy perfume. Every year me and my mam buy each other a little bag of essentials, some people may think it's strange but I think it's a great idea which explains everything else in that photo. I now also have my first ever Yankee candle product, I got some pink sands tea lights and they smell lovely, I really love the tea light holders my grandma chose too, they match my room perfectly! In the last photo on the bottom right is a bin, which you may think is weird but I really want to add the finishing touches to my room and have been banging on about needing a bin for ages but I could never find one I really like, yes I'm that fussy about a bin haha. I guess my grandma just got me that Gollywog coaster because it's cute, bless her. I was also fortunate enough to receive quite a bit of money and have already bought some cheeky bits, I was going to include all of that in this post too but it's already way too long haha so I hope you don't mind another haul, possibly even my next post? 

As for the day itself, my friends are so cute, I walked into social for break and there they were at our table shouting happy birthday and popping party poppers. That's when I got my helium balloon which I proudly carried around school for the rest of the day, even if it was knocking everyone out haha. That night I went to a local Italians and had a very nice meal with my mam, her boyfriend and Lee. It was just a lovely chilled night to be honest. I did tell you all that I was going to 'hopefully post some birthday outfits' but once again I was in a massive rush on Friday and they just turned into a massive failure, I do have some photos though which I will show you in another post. As for Saturday, I said there would be drinks involved, well that didn't happen, I also said that the girls had something planned for Tuesday but I have just found out that plans need to be rearranged. I definitely did have a really nice birthday though! 

Thank you for reading. Love,
