20th Birthday: Haul

My birthday was on the 17th October and I turned 20 years old!

I was completely spoilt by my family and boyfriend and I have to thank them so much for being the best people ever. I thought I would show you a few of the presents I opened at home (mainly because I had the best lighting then!)

The first thing I wanted to show you is this amazing cookbook by Ella Woodward. 1) Her name is Ella so it was a must and 2) it features some of the most amazing, healthy, gluten free, dairy free etc recipes that I am so excited to try! I also wanted to show you the copper stationary pots next to it from Paperchase – and you know I love copper.

The next amazing present was this diary that you keep for 5 years. If you haven’t seen this before, they’re incredible! You answer a question every single day and can watch how your answer changes over the years which I think is so cool.

My mum also completely spoilt me by getting me my favourite foundation which is the Estee Lauder Double Wear. I was completely shocked when I opened it as I wasn’t expecting it at all!


I was lucky enough to get some other phenomenal presents but I just featured a few in this post. Thank you to everyone who wished me happy birthday, I had an amazing time with the people I love the most.

    That diary sounds interesting, will have to check it out as it could make a novel xmas present (not that I want to think about the ‘C’ word yet!) And those copper pots are perfect for you… someone obviously knows you well! Glad you had a fab birthday <3 xx
