Birthday Gifts & Haul

Hello lovelies, i hope your all well and had a wonderful weekend like me. So it was my birthday on Saturday and i got lots of lovely goodies that i thought i would share with you. This post may be a little all over the place with who got me what but i thought instead of having a million photo's the way I've done it would be easier so please bare with me haha.
So from my dad i got two more charms which are a cute little diamante cross and cat, he's been getting me charms since i was 16 to go on the bracelet he got me so it's really sentimental. He also got me one of my childhood films goodnight Mr Tom and I'm a big fan of Monty Python so he got me the life of Brian, the meaning of life and my favourite the holy grail...your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries! Haha those who are also a fan will understand that bit. From some of my birthday money i got myself the Barry M textured nail effects in Ridley road and Kingsland road and a Boots nail and cuticle oil as i didn't have one. From one of my lovely friends I got Lush's dream cream which i had my eye on and some bath bombs in this lovely jar, which i loved as i wanted one to store my Lush bits in...it's like she read my mind haha. Then off my mum i got a lovely beanie and a little cook book full of recipes for cup cakes, cookies, brownies and lovely treats like that. And then lastly from these photos whilst i was in Lush spending my voucher the lovely assistant also give me some samples of things to try which i thought was really nice so thought i would add it.
Off my dad i also got a £30 voucher for Lush so these are the goodies i picked up. As they now have their Easter bits in i just had to pick up two of the fluffy egg balistics, i seriously love these and stock up on them so i have them through the year haha, if you like sweet smells you need this in your life! I also picked up my other favourite the rose jam bubbleroon, a honey bee for the Mr to treat him and another eau roma water as mines getting a little low. I then picked up a ceridwyns cauldron bath which is the one in the muslin cloth as it reminded me of the spa, and one of their new items called the bright side bubble bar as it smells of oranges and is just amazing. Even with all that i still have £6 on my gift card, which I'll spend a bit later as i couldn't decide on anything else with all this in my basket haha. 
Also with the birthday money i just had to get a MAC fix, of course. So i picked my self up another lipstick and i decided on creme cup, which is a really nice pink that i think will look stunning for those spring and summer days. And a mineralize skinfinish in soft and gentle, my god this is stunning as soon as i swatched it i knew i needed it. 
My mother, knowing how much I'm make up obsessed also got me a No7 make up mirror that lights up. She's such a star as i didn't actually have a proper mirror to do my make up so this was an amazing present and i now can't wait to get a proper make up space. 
My beautiful little boy got me the leopard print shirt dress that i put on my birthday wish list, cause he's such a little star. I love this dress and can't wait to wear it, i shall certainly be getting more from Oh my love.
But the best present of all had to be from my amazing partner who payed for me and my best friend to stay the night at a spa. At the start of this year i was talking to him about a spa me and my friend had seen and how i would love a girly spa break with her, and bless his little cotton socks he actually done it for me. The place we went is just down Cornwall (i say just as that's really close to me haha) called Bedruthan hotel and spa and my word it was simply beautiful. We had a sea view room and the picture is the stunning view that we had, we stayed Saturday night and took full advantage of the spa and pool being open till 8pm. With the package he booked for us you also got a 30 minute treatment each so my friend had a back massage and i had a face,head, neck and shoulder massage which was amazing. I will certainly be going back here when i can and hope to take the Mr here for our anniversary. 

And to top all this off i also won two giveaway's....how amazing is that! I have never won anything in my life and around my birthday i win two, i really can't believe how much of a lucky spoilt girl I've been the past week. Well there we go, a haul post indeed haha. I will be doing reviews as always on the make up and beauty side of things, but if you would also like to know about any of the Lush bath bombs or bubble bars just let me know. I hope no one thinks I'm bragging about what I've got though, i just know a lot of my readers like hauls so i thought i would share, so i hope no one takes it in the wrong way :). Thank you for reading, i hope you all have a wonderful day and i shall see you again soon x
