What I Got For My Birthday 2018

Following on from my post about the 28 things I've learned in 28 years I thought it would be a fabulous idea to show you all what I got for my birthday this year since most people said yes to it in a poll I did on Instagram. I was meant to do this post last week but it totally slipped my mind seeing as I had so many other blog posts in the framework.

My 28th birthday was pretty quiet and I was meant to go out for it but the weather wasn't brilliant so I still haven't had the chance yet. So we just stayed home and had a movie day and had some yummy food and an amazing birthday cake.
What I Got For My Birthday 2018
Since it was my birthday I decided to get up a little later than normal and relax in bed until I got up at 8am. I had my pyjamas on all morning before I went and had a lovely long bath with one of my favourite lush bath bombs 'sex bomb' It has one of the most relaxing scents in the world and I didn't want to get out the bath because of how nice it was.

For breakfast, I had a McDonald's breakfast which I have never tried before. I got all the vegetarian options including the egg and cheese muffin, pancakes and hash browns. I actually now prefer having the breakfast foods here now especially the pancakes, they are delicious especially with the maple syrup poured ontop of them.

I had a makeup-free day since I wasn't going to go anywhere so I had a big skincare day in which I wore a face mask and relaxing with my feet up reading a book. My skin has never felt so soft since it was a nice change for sure.

We were meant to go out for food but plans got changed unfortunately but we did stay in and ordered a takeaway. Since it was my birthday I decided to get fish and chips, just love fish and chips especially when they have lots of yummy salt and finger. 

My cake was a cream cake and it had lashings of cream, chocolate buttons and triangular dark and milk chocolate. I ate a slice that was bigger than the usual slice I would go for but it was my birthday, so calories don't count then right?

Kat Von D 'Metal Crush' Extreme Highlighter in Gammaray
These highlighters recently came out recently and I had them on my wishlist so getting this was a lovely surprise. Love the rose gold and the packaging is just gorgeous.

Another amazing highlighter to add to my collection, woohoo! I love the design of the packaging and my goodness guy.. it shimmers like the highlighters inside.

I have wanted this palette since it first came out so I had a tear in my eye once I opened this present up. It's a beautiful collection of neutral shimmery and matte eyeshadows.
