What i got for my 21st Birthday

IM 21! I cannot believe it all flew by so quickly but i had the most amazing weekend. My actual birthday was the 25th June but i celebrated with my friends on the Friday and my family on the Saturday and it was all just so much fun, i loved every minute of it. I also got some AMAZING presents so i thought i would share them all with you guys.

I cant thank my family and boyfriend enough for these lovely gifts and just making my birthday so special. I wont bore you with the little gifts but ive picked out the things i think you guys would be interested in seeing and split it into 3 categories, clothing, accessories and random bits.


I GOT A MICHAEL KORS HANDBAG!! I have wanted a designer bag for so long and i am still in a state of shock that i now own one, i feel like the luckiest girl. Black is perfect colour for me, there is less chance of it getting dirty and it will go with everything in my wardrobe! I am in love, it has an insane amount of space inside and the leather is really sturdy so you can tell its not a fake. I was beyond happy with that but then i also got a DKNY purse to match my bag, i was gobsmacked and super overwhelmed that i had such amazing presents, i cant thank my parents enough. Be prepared to see ALOT of this bag in all my upcoming outfit posts.


Every single item of clothing i got bought for my birthday was from River Island, that just shows how much my family and boyfriend know how much i love that shop. My boyfriend bought me the oversized striped shirt which will go perfectly with a pair of tight skinny jeans and he also got me the black and white crop top which is super cute and fits really nice. Then my parents bought me the bey and jay sweatshirt which is so soft and cosy inside and its just going to be something i reach for all the time. Finally they got me this super cool metallic vibe silver bomber jacket. I went shopping with my mum a while ago and never bought this and regretted it ever since but now i have it and i know it will be worn alot!


These gifts are all from my boyfriend, he got me way more than i expected, i was so happy. He knows how much i love sweets and OMG these peach hearts have literally made my life, apparently they sell all typed of sweets in these huge boxes on amazon, so i will defiantly be buying some more when i run out, which probably wont take long! Obviously he knows how much i love blogging and watching YouTube videos so he bought me Zoellas girl online book which im excited to start reading. How cute is this nemo?! Its one of my favourite Pixar films and he always said he would win me one in those grabby machines but he couldn't so he bought me this cutie instead, he even had a lucky fin! Then finally he surprised me with tickets to Matilda the Musical. I have loved the film ever since i was little and i cant wait to see it come to life on stage!

Hope you all enjoyed this kind of post! Ill do a little shop the post underneath if you like any of these gifts for you or anyone else.
