WHAT I GOT FOR MY 21ST BIRTHDAY!

I know this post may seem a bit late but ever since my birthday (August 31st btw) I've been so busy! I haven't really had a chance to stop and chill out but I really wanted to get this post written asap rocky, Work has been so busy and I've actually started doing blogger shoots properly now so I've been up and down to London in the last few weeks! 

My birthday has always been one of those events that my parents dread, only because I would start writing my birthday list literally straight after Christmas and all of the Argos catalogs would be covered in circles and bright pink glittery gel pen! As I've got older (and maybe a bit wiser), my birthday is just another day in the year and I don't really tend to celebrate much. However, this year is one of those 'important' years where I actually turn 21! I tend to not ask for much for my birthday as I only want a nice family meal but, this year my parents and other family members went all cray cray and spoiled me rotten. Of course, I have to say, whatever you may read in this post I am honestly not gloating or boasting... is gloating the right word? I just wanted to share my beautiful and weird gifts with you guys! 


Pandora Ring, Earrings & Charm
I'm really not a jewelry person like I love jewelry but I'm not one to wear it. I just don't want to lose it or break it so I tend to wear your 8 pack of earrings from Claire's because if I lose it, it's easily replaced. My godmother bought me the prettiest Pandora ring for my tiny little finger and I don't think I've taken it off since (apart from taking this picture obvs). It's got little silver hearts going around the band and it even has a gold heart mixed in among them, I never really thought about mixing your metals but it's deffo a thing and I'm living for it! There's something about rings and bracelets that make me feel more fluid, do you know what I mean? Like, you know that feeling of when you get your nails done and you feel like a goddess who could be apart of the pussycat dolls! I just feel more angelic and as if I have pretty dainty hands which I definitely do not. If you're thinking of looking at a Pandora ring for a gift for someone or for yourself, then definitely check out the sizing as I legit had to have the smallest size and it still doesn't fit one of my fingers properly. 


Can you tell jewelry was the running theme for gifts this year? I ain't complaining though, I have 7 ear piercings in total and I legit never change them. I just don't see the point in changing them because I'm just not your fussy type of gal you know, and tbh I only own 7 lots of earrings so I don't really have a choice! My Aunt gifted me a stunning pair of square-shaped diamante earrings from Pandora, they were much bigger than I was used to wearing but I didn't care! I'm honestly in love with them and they're so eye-catching, I've had so many compliments on them and that honestly never happens so these bad boys will be chilling in there for the foreseeable future... 


There's a bit of a story behind this bracelet, my mum had originally bought me a Tiffany bracelet! The bracelet itself was stunning, it was dainty and delicate and everything about it, I loved. However, the longer I wore it the more cautious I was being about flinging it around, I was too scared to wear it. The bracelet itself was ridiculously expensive and my mum told me to return it because I wouldn't wear it because it was so dainty, I agreed with her so we went to Tiffany in hopes to do an exchange. 

So, to cut a long story short... We told the lady at Tiffany that we wanted an exchange and she legit looked me and my mum up and down with a bitch face on. Bare in mind I'm a common gal who doesn't really pronounce her T's & Q's, so she probs was looking at me disgust or whatever you want to call it. She then went on to say that I was making a big mistake, I would never find anything better than Tiffany and basically said that any other brand of jewelry is crap compared to Tiffany. My mum and I were in shock and instead of asking for an exchange, we asked for a refund and my mum told her she would be taking her money elsewhere (LOL GO ON SHE SHE). Let's just say the woman had more of a bitchface going on now and was probably happy that we left! So... instead, I decided to purchase a stunning bangle from Monica Vinader and I'm honest to God in love with it. It's a weird and quirky looking bracelet but it was the perfect size for me to not worry about it so much and the shape of it truly had me head over heels! I've got my eyes on the rose gold bangle to go alongside this one so you may be seeing that on my Instagram very soon... 


My cousin knows me so well, I'm just a makeup whore and I'm perfectly ok with that and my family have come to terms with who I am so it's all good. I haven't had a Naked Palette in my possession for years, I did, in fact, own all of them at one point but my mother threw them away by accident so I was paletteless and have been ever since. The Naked Heat Palette is gorgeous, isn't it? I had only ever seen pictures of it online but in person, the colours are STUNNING! Red tones, bronze shades, and rose golds are legit all I wear on my eyes when I do a full face of glam and in this one palette, I have everything I need. I haven't played around with it yet as I have to take pictures of it first (blogger lyfe init) but I can't wait to dip my brush in and create some smokey, red-hot looks with it. 


Tickets to Aladdin & Harry Potter And The Cursed Child
I'm a theatre junkie, I've seen Wicked 7 times and I see the Lion King every year. The theatre is in my blood and my mum was such a babe and got me tickets to see Aladdin and the Harry Potter show in the West End, I was so gassed guys you have no idea. Aladdin was sick, I cannot explain to you how happy it made me! The show was bright, fun and had me in fits of laughter near enough the whole way through, my mum even enjoyed it and she hates Disney (I know, such a disappointment). 

Harry Potter was something else, I was a bit concerned because I'm a true Hazza p fan through and through so when the film series stopped, I wasn't really interested in the story being pulled apart by sequels, prequels or spin-offs. I haven't read the book for the play but I've heard it's good and the show didn't disappoint. I don't want to ruin anything for you as the whole point of the show is to #keepthesecret but it was a long day as it's two, 2 hour long shows in one day. The storyline was fab and unexpected and it was great to see all of my favorite characters again, Snape was in it and I think Alan would be proud of his portrayal in the play. Overall, both plays were a great gift and I was so bloody grateful to be treated to both for my birthday. 


I kind of have this obsession with Llamas... alpacas too. I even went to a llama farm last year and I was seriously considering becoming a llama farmer just to chill with the llamas. My brother got me a rainbow llama and I mean, I was over the moon when it came through the door because I know exactly what it was! It literally came in the post in the shape of a llama... I know I'm 21 and I should've really passed the cuddly toy stage by now but, I don't give a damn because it's a rainbow llama and it makes me happy so, who cares!

So... that was my birthday haul guys! I'm not sure if people really care about what I got but I love to read these kinds of posts, just because it gives me an idea of what I can buy for others and in all honesty, I'm just a nosey parker who is just curious to see other peoples gifts.

Have you seen anything in this haul that you may ask for your own birthday? If so, everything is linked. Make sure you let me know down below if you like these kinds of posts and tell me what you got for your birthday this year!

AUGUST FAVES : FOUR TELEVISION SERIES YOU JUST CAN'T MISS

If you know me on a personal level then you will know that I'm the gal who has watched every single crime drama going, I also know all of the names and ages of all the cast members in every series I have ever watched. Some may call me a know it all but I like to think of myself as a walking/talking IMDB and I'm perfectly ok with that. In all seriousness though, since my last post on my favorite tv series (you can read it here) I actually think I've watched every television series Netflix has to offer, whether this is a good thing or a bad thing, that's entirely down to your judgment. 

TV series actually mean a lot more to me than a normal person and it feels quite weird saying that but I love looking forward to a new episode each week and I love the storylines they produce. I'm just a sucker for the drama of it all and I find the behind the scenes facts and trivia to be my absolute fave thing to research. Please if you're like me, then message me and tell me I'm not alone...

CHICAGO FIRE 
I'm just going to kick this post off with one of my most loved series at the moment. Chicago Fire is based in Chicago (obvs) and it follows a brigade of firemen (also obvs) fighting fires and just being total badasses. I know what you're thinking, I had you at firefighters didn't I? Of course, it's great to watch from that aspect but the storylines are just so gripping and actually interesting, I've watched some crime dramas in the past that were so simple to work out and I've actually been bored by a few of them. I dunno if you would call it a crime drama but it's structure it practically the same, it's just a different take on it and I think that's what I love the most. There was an episode about one of the female paramedics becoming a firefighter, one of the men was expressing how men are stronger than women... blah blah blah and let's just say that they totally tackled the discussion brilliantly and women firefighters are totally a thing and I'm loving it. 

ORPHAN BLACK
I know I know, I mentioned Orphan Black in my last post but I'm not gonna lie to you guys, this series has got to be the best damn thing I've ever watched and I've watched a lot, some things twice over. It's only recently released it's final ever episode and their last season honestly had me in tears. When I describe the series plot to other people they legit look at me as if I have like 8 heads or something because it does sound bizarre but if you're into the sci-fi genre and you like weird and thought provoking things then this series is perfect for you. If you've already watched it then please leave a comment down below on your favorite sestra is and why! If you want to know more about the series this please check out my last post here.


BIG LITTLE LIES
This bad boy isn't on Netflix but I was able to stream it online and oh ma dayz... There are 7 episodes of just pure brilliantness. If I had to compare it to anything else it would have to be an American version of Broadchurch but with Oscar nominated actresses and a brilliant ending that will make you wee with excitement. It stars Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard, Reece Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley and if that's not enough to convince you then you're like super weird ok... like who doesn't love the sound of that cast? I can't really explain the story line to you because one small detail could ruin it for you and I'm not that gal ok but, what I will say is that it focuses on normal people, normal families but it all focuses on a murder... you go through the series not knowing who's been murdered, why they've been murdered or who the murderer is. You're practically a detective whilst watching this series which is what I loved the most about it, it makes you think and I came up with so many theories about who the victim and the murder was and then when it came down to the ending... I was shook.

GOTHAM
Gotham is a bit of a weird one, it's definitely something I wasn't expecting to like if I'm keeping it real with you. It follows a very young Bruce Wayne in the aftermath of the murder of his parents but, the main character isn't even young Batman over here, it's James Gordon (The detective that Gary Oldman plays in the Batman films). The cast is bloody brilliant, Jada Pinkett Smith is in it and I'm living for her character in this series, It does sound like a strange concept for a television series but, it just gives you a better understanding of how Bruce Wayne became Batman. It has a very Tim Burton feel to it and it's also set in modern day which I really like. I'm a massive fan of the DC comic books so when I watched this, I was literally so gassed to see how all of my favorite characters like the Riddler, Cat Women and Penguin became who they are. Omg... they also introduce a young teenage Joker and coming from an ex-performing arts student, I was shook by his acting and his portrayal of the Joker. It's legit everything I imagine the Joker to be and is possibly my favorite portrayal of the Joker... ever.


Even though I included a series that I mentioned in my last post, this was so hard! I've watched hundreds of television series and to only pick a couple was a big challenge to me, I hope you like the sound of my fave series picks for August and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them down in the comments below.

What's your favorite TV show? I'm always looking for new ones to watch.

THEY'RE LIKE, SO TOTALLY FETCH | SPECTRUM X MEAN GIRLS COLLABORATION

Raise your hand if you've ever wanted to get your hands on some spectrum brushes... Well, I'm sure if my hand could stretch any further it would be through the roof. You can probably guess from the title of this post, that cheeky little Mean Girls quote and the abundance of pink pictures floating around the blogosphere to what this post is about. Something so totally fetch is happening today and I totes want to share it with you... see what I did there... deffo trying to make 'fetch' happen. 

A month and a bit ago I was honored to attend the launch of the Spectrum x Mean Girls collaboration with paramount, the event was legit bright pink and you couldn't miss it from a mile away. I'm sorry but this event was on another level, they had pink lockers in one corner of the room as the perfect backdrop for some blog photos and it legit felt like I was back at school. They had actors walking around the room portraying the characters from the film and I even got to slut drop with Damien (SHE DOESN'T EVEN GO HERE)
