Birthday bits and bobs.

As I'm sure you are aware, (I've only mentioned it  few times!) I celebrated my Birthday last Sunday. I went to Bath with my family to visit the fashion museum. Bath was a really pretty place which we had never visited before, but I would defo recommend it :) We went down on the park and ride which worked really well, it was literally 10 minutes away from the center of town.

The fashion museum was really good! They had a really great collection, spanning a long time, which was very interesting as it showed perfectly how fashions have changed over the centuries . These were my favourite items from their collection:

The first one is a fancy dress costume in the shape of a champagne bottle! I can't remember exactly but I think it was from the 1920's or '30's. The middle picture is of a Chanel suit, which of course caught my eye because it's Chanel! It really is an iconic item, and I loved seeing this. The museum had those little auto guide things which told you a bit about each item which was really interesting :) and finally is a classic Burberry trench from 2012, I think it was great that they had such recent items as well as the Victorian and even Tutor stuff.

We ate lunch in one of my favourite restaurants, Wagamama! I had the Ginger chicken udon, which is literally the best thing ever!

Its making me hungry just thinking about how good this was!

*Just a quick disclaimer before I go on, I'm not trying to show off/ brag or what ever by dong this, I personally love reading `birthday haul` posts like this and I just wanted to share my Birthday with you!*

I received some really lovely gifts this year, mainly, my Olivia Burton Watch!

This beaut was my main present from my parents and I love it! I mentioned it previously in my Birthday OOTD post here and there's not really much more I can say, other than look how pretty it is, and get ready for seeing this in every OOTD! Check out her other beautiful, vintage inspired designs here.

My parents also bought me some really nice clothes, (other than my leather jacket which I'm sure your sick to death with hearing about!) All of these items are from H&M, they have some really lovely things in at the moment!

One of the things that caught my eye was this gorgeous lace crop top.


The lace is really delicate and pretty which I love about this.Topshop have something really similar to this which I had been thinking about purchasing, but this one was a lot cheaper, result!

Another item I chose where these gorgeous striped jeans


I'm sure you know monochrome is going to be huge, so this is my little nod to it! I am going to look a bit `beetle-juice` in these, but that's fine by me!  I'm planning an wearing these soon, so watch out for an OOTD ;)

Lastly from my parents is this gorgeous dress. I. am. in. love!


I just adore the colour and the style, its just so pretty! I love the fact that the lace at the waist band doesn't have any backing so it's see through and shows of the midriff, I just think it makes it a bit more fun and different :)

My sister bought me the Vera Wang `lovestruck floral rush perfume` which was actually on my first blog wishlist :)

I love this perfume and I'm so happy to have it in my collection! It also came with a free bag which we all found pretty funny; my dad presented it unwrapped and sort of like, um, this came with it! I think you may of had to have been there ;)


I saw my Auntie a few weeks ago , and she gave me my Birthday money then, so of course, I headed straight for Boots! I purchased a Tangle teezer and the real techniques stippling brush.
I cant stress how much I love both of these things, I literally don't know how I lived without them :)

Another Uncle and aunt bought me this gorgeous Paul's boutique purse


Admittedly, I'm not the hugest Paul's Boutique but I LOVE this purse!

My other uncle ( I have a few!) bought me this beautiful glass necklace



The glass-work is so pretty and unique and I adore the colours :)

My lovely Grandma gifted me this gorgeous little bag

The print is to cute! I was also given some money, which may or may not have already been spent ;)

My neighbor bought me this lovely new look top, I love the detail on the back!



I was also thoroughly spoilt by my wonderful friends this year :)




Firstly, I was gifted this gorgeous coral peplum top, its so pretty! Can't wait to wear :)

I was also given an assortment of jewelry
I cant wait to wear all of these bracelets stacked together :)
How pretty is this ring! I love delicate designs like this. 

Another lovely present was this tea light holder and mug!
As you can see, I've already used the candle, and the mug is now storing my lip things!

Everyone one knows that I love a good old bath (especially lush!) I just hope the're not trying to tell me something!

So there we have it! I had an absolutely lovely birthday, and would like to thank everyone for my wonderful gifts :) 

I'm back to school tomorrow (boo) so my blogging will have to come after revision and homework, oh the joy, put I'll post as regularly as possible!  I'm of now to do some science and spend my birthday iTunes ;)
