This Monday, 22nd May, was my 18th Birthday and I had an amazing day surrounded by my family and friends.
I had Lunch at The Ivy Cafe in Richmond, a new restaurant close to the river Thames that has fresh and spring-like decor and offers sophisticated dining.
I had the HLT sandwich and the Peach and Elder-flower Iced tea which you can see in the images below:
I was incredibly lucky to be so spoilt by my friends and family this year, I just want to put a disclaimer out there to say that in no way am I trying to ‘brag’ in this post, it’s purely just for anyone who may be interested.
The one thing I had asked my mum for was a DSLR Camera. She got me the Canon 1300D double lens kit which came with the 18-55mm and 75-300mm lenses. You can look at this deal here. I’m really happy with it and have used it for most images shown.
My parents very kindly also got me some other things including a Yankee Candle, a Victoria’s Secret set and a Lush Gift Set in ‘Bella Fruta‘ and the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream which you can see here.
My friends satisfied my makeup needs by getting me a selection of amazing things, such as the Carli Bybel palette from bh cosmetics, the Urban Decay Naked Illuminated trio, the Kat Von D tattoo liner and bow and arrow everlasting lipstick and a whole lot of Colourpop.
( Slave2Pink Super shock Eyeshadow, Likely, November, Echo Park, London Fog and FricknFrack Ultra Satin Lips and the Belle of the Ball Palette.)
I also received some gorgeous clothes including a pink and red graphic t-shirt from Zara, a pink suede jacket from Bershka, a bralet over lay t-shirt from Missguided, an embroidered mesh t-shirt from New Look and also a pair of heels.
In addition to everything you see here, I received many other gifts and money that I would love to mention but I would be here listing for days.
Thank you to everyone for your best wishes!
