What I Received For My Birthday | 2015

Recently, I celebrated my birthday and was lucky enough to receive some amazing goodies and presents. I personally love reading these types of posts as they often give me ideas for Christmases and Birthdays. Because of this, I thought it would be fun to share with you the presents I was given.

Cooking books may seem like a weird thing to be given but as a university student, there is nothing better than a good cook book to give you inspiration. I always find it hard to cook different meals so I was very excited to get these books and have already found some yummy recipes to try.

It almost brought me to tears when my younger brother and sister handed me gifts that they brought themselves! My wonderful brother brought me a Christmas scented candle which smells amazing and is currently being burnt which is getting me into the spirit. My lovely sister brought me a massive bag of Starburst Sweets which are my favourite!   

As a beauty lover, there were some beauty products thrown in as well. The Soap & Glory Pulp Friction Body Scrub is a product that I had wanted to try but kept forgetting to pick it up so it was brilliant when I received it. I also received a set of Rimmel products including a lip crayon, red glitter nail polish and mascara.  

The final product is from Superdry because my mother knows me very well! I live in Superdry as they have very comfortable clothes and this grey and purple jumper is no different. This jumper has a fluffy lining which makes it very cosy and ideal for autumn!

Thanks to my wonderful and delightful family who brought me these amazing gifts. I am in no way showing off these gifts and I am very grateful and thankful.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?
