Monday was my twenty-first birthday!
Even though I had already chosen my main present, it was still gorgeous to open on the day, and I love what I got.
We went for a family meal to Red Hot Buffet in Liverpool One - amazing food! We were all so stuffed, and auntie Kathy kept the bubbly flowing, so it was a fun little night :) Photos of that will come later.
This is the majority of my cards and presents... PHOTO OVERLOAD AHEAD! I do apologise, I got rather snap-happy taking photos of my lovely gifts :)
From my parents, I got beautiful purple Vivienne Westwood jewellery. I originally wanted just the bracelet and necklace, but after the assistant in the shop showed us the brooch and ring I couldn't leave without them! Sounds like I'm spoilt, I know, but please know I work for everything I earn, so my mum insisted on spoiling me for my twenty-first ^_^
I couldn't get a decent photo of the necklace, but it's the same as the bracelet in the third photo above.
My pretty cake; the glitter buttefly broke in half on the way home from the restaurant, still yummy!Lauren from uni bought me this ceramic money pot - when it's full you have to smash it open, but it's far too pretty to break! I may end up keeping it full so I always have a stash of money! She also put a New Look giftcard in my card; she's such a sweetie pie :)
Danni bought me a huge nail varnish/care kit and sparkly bra straps! I'm planning on having fun doing my nails over the weekend.
Chris bought me a Vivienne Westwood voucher - gives me an excuse to go back and drool over the counters again!
Cute little belly bars from the Beauty show last month
My cousins, uncle and auntie got me a beautiful brush set - made from badger hair; softest thing ever! And a bottle of bubbly and chocolates - this weighed a tonne.
Heather knows me all but too well - a Soap & Glory giftset - all the things I was running out of, a bottle of bubbly and she said there's something else but she hasn't finished making it yet - I am very intrigued to see what this will be!
Last but certainly not least, I went shopping before the family meal with Jack - he has already bought me tickets to see Jason Manford in April, but wanted to get me another piece of jewellery since he already made me bracelets and bought me a gorgeous necklace.
He had his eye on a ring, but it was far too big for my tiny child-like fingers, so we both saw this one and loved it. Not the best photo, but it curls round my finger leaving a gap at the front, and the top half is covered in crystals, it's beautiful <3
