What I Got For My 17th Birthday

Other than the fact now being 17 is extremely daunting and I still look 12, which is just great, I had a really fab birthday! I spent the day at my nursery for my work placement, which was fun, but I obviously don't have access to my phone all day. When I came home, I was bombarded with so many sweet birthday messages from all of, which made me just appreciate my blogging friends and the blogging community that I am a part of. It's funny to think that people I have actually never met in real life are kinder than some of the people that I call my friends. You are all too amazing and honestly all your lovely comments and messages meant so much more to me than any present I could have ever received. Today, I thought I would share with you some of the presents that I got for my birthday. If you don't like this kind of post or assume I am being braggy then you are under no obligation to read it! But if you are sticking around, then I hope you enjoy!

Happy birthday haul bloggers


My main present for my birthday this year was a trip to the Warner Brothers Studio: The Making of Harry Potter. Which if you haven't seen, I did a post all about it HERE. Of course, it wouldn't be natural not to go and spend your entry fee and more in the quite overwhelming giftshop. So I did and I firstly got a wand. An essential for 17-year-old's out there! I got Voldemort's! I know, boo hiss! But his wand was a lot more exciting than Snape's or Draco's so I could kind of justify spending that much! I also picked up the official guide book and had a very flattering picture of me taken on a broom, which you can probably guess wasn't cheap! Finally from Harry Potter world, I got a cute little Dobby Necklace, which is actually adorable! oh and a Slytherin postcard which I put in a photo frame.

My mum then surprised me with a set of Harry Potter PJ's and Harry Potter socks because you know I don't think I had enough Harry Potter mechanise.

Asides of Harry Potter one of my biggest loves in this world, is Disney. It is my aim before I die to collect as many of the Disney films as I can possibly collect. To add to my collection, my parents got me Bedtime stories, The jungle book and Little Mermaid- which I can't wait to sit down and watch!

One of my all-time favourite TV shows is Keeping up appearances. This show is seriously old, but it is British comedy gold and I love it! I am actually so happy to own the box set now!

If you know me then you will know I am extremely fussy with Chocolate, I can't just have any old thing so when I found out I got some Marks & Spencers Chocolate truffles I was actually delighted. You don't know the pain I had to go through, trying not to eat them all this week so I could take a photo, oh....blogger problems!

Monochrome and dogtooth are my jam, so when I saw that my parents got me this super cosy dogtooth cape, I was really happy! I can't wait to wear this. To be honest, I will probably wear it all year around because I love it so much.

Finally from my parents I got a camera cleaning kit. when I told my friends I got a camera cleaning kit for my birthday, they didn't get it but because most of my readers are bloggers, you get that a camera cleaning kit is not only essential but really exciting. well, maybe it's just me then!

Lastly from my best friend, she kindly got me a sanctuary spa shower gel set, which I am not gonna lie I am in love with the tin more than the products and a Soap and Glory, Handmaid because I bloody love this stuff but who has got £2.50 to spend on hand sanitizer, I definitely haven't, not at the rate I go through it!
