✿ A Little Birthday Haul ✿

So it was my 17th birthday on October 6th (yay I can finally learn to drive) and I thought I'd show you what I got. I didn't get too much presents wise as I had asked for money and my parents, very kindly, bought me a shiny new laptop.. I am so happy I finally have a working computer as 2 computers have broken on my this year. Expect a lot more blogging from me over the next few weeks.
I also treated myself to a pair of American Apparel Easy Jeans, very expensive but they are so so nice. Look out for a post dedicated completely to them soon. They will be another haul soon as I went shopping last weekend and bought a few bits and pieces with some of my birthday money.

♡ The XX Coexist ♡ Rimmel Metal Rush & Glitter Polishes ♡ Topshop Chunky Necklace ♡ Soap & Glory Original Pink Fragrance ♡ Simply Home Yankee Candle in Cherry Vanilla ♡ Escape Bath Salts ♡ Soap & Glory The Birthday Box & Soaper Hereos Gift Sets ♡ Lindt Chocolates ♡ Escape Scarf ♡ 
  • I absolutely love this scarf my nana got me. The lime green colour is beautiful and it's so cosy. I can't believe she got this from Wilkinson's. The whole escape range is divine and ever so cheap. 
  • I love the Topshop necklace my sister got me. My boyfriend thinks it looks like a pad lock but I think it is beautiful. I love how it's such a statement piece and I wore it on my birthday with a khaki coloured sheer shirt.
  • My Dad clearly took advantage of the 3 for 2 on in boots right now and treated me to these lovely things from soap and glory, it's actually the first time I've ever received something from them myself (I've always stolen my mums opps) and I was so happy to see these. I love the righteous butter and the clean on my shower wash. A review of the perfume is here.
  • I can't stop listening to the XX's new album. It's such a calming album to listen to, definitely have a listen if you get the chance.
Mama-Bear and I

Of course I am not bragging about what I got I just wanted to show you all some of the lovely things I was given, and show you a few snaps from my birthday. I had a lovely day with friends and family and had some yummy food in Nandos the night before and Harvester on my actual birthday.
