Woohooo! I’m eighteen!
Yesterday (9th November) was my birthday and, like last year, I thought I’d share a little bit about what I got and what I did! It was an inset day at college luckily so I had the whole day to spend doing something!
What I got…
My biggest present I got this year was my new computer – a Macbook Air! I got this from my parents and they also gave me a Hogwarts Acceptance Letter because we are going to Harry Potter Studios today (Post to come). Most of the other gifts I’ve received have been from friends; I have lots and lots of smellies now which is good because I’m going to be smelling really nice for yearrrrsss! I’ve also received some money from other family members, and I haven’t seen some of then yet so I don’t know if I’ve got anything or not! Thank you everyone for your gifts!
What I did…
As it was an inset day, I took the opportunity to go out somewhere! My friends and I went to Brighton to do some shopping! I met one of my friends at my house, Ellen, in the morning, and the other met us in Brighton later on…
We caught the train, so we were in Brighton at about 11:20. The first thing we did was check out a Harry Potter themed shop called ‘Oliver’s’ near the station that my mum had mentioned. It was pretty cool but I didn’t buy anything from there. We walked towards town and the first shop we went into was Ryman so I could buy a new bullet journal! I had student discount and a voucher so it was pretty cheap! We then headed to Starbucks for a snack as it was too early to get lunch, plus we had to wait for Alicia!
After a bit of a sit down, we headed into the shopping centre and looked around a few shops! I bought a the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Foundation and an Imperial Leather Foamburst Shower Gel from Superdrug! I also bought a bodysuit and skirt from Topshop. When we finished in Topshop, we met Alicia and went to McDonald’s for lunch because it’s easy! I had a happy meal because I wasn’t very hungry! We continued shopping after that…
I bought a small body spray from Hollister because I’ve never shopped there before and I also bought a bathbomb from Lush using a voucher that Ellen had given me. We got lost in The Lanes trying to find Lush! I didn’t buy much more despite going to many different shops!
We headed back at about 4:30 and we had to go an awkward way because the trains weren’t running very well. We went to Costa on the way back and they gave us free cake!
When I got back, I immediately went to gymnastics and saw my friends there! One of my friend’s mum gave me alcohol!!
If you’re interested, I did put a vlog on YouTube if you’d like to check it out HERE
Overall, I had a great day, and I’m looking forward to Harry Potter today and seeing my Grandma on Sunday!
Thanks for reading – when’s your birthday?
