18th Birthday shopping haul

Well hello to you my reader chums!  I've recently turned 18 and wanted to share with you everything I've received as these are my favourite types of posts to read. I'm incredibly happy and thankful for everything I got. My parents gave me money and Billy Elliot tickets so I went on a big shopping spree before I watched the show! I picked up some lovely bits. I'm going to show you all the clothing items then move on to beauty.


I decided to treat myself to a new pair of converse. I picked up low top grey ones because they're perfect for summer and grey goes with many things, they cost £45.

Grey converse Schuh

Forever 21

I was really excited to go here because I absolutely love this shop and sadly there isn't one near me so when I head to a shopping place I spend a while here. I'm pretty sure my friends and I spend a good hour looking and trying on different bits. 

forever 21 cream satchel

The first thing I bought was this really cute creamy satchel. I picked this up because I'm one of those girls who lug big bags around with me as I practically bring my whole house with me when I go out. I thought as it's summertime I should purchase some smaller bags and carry around fewer bits and bobs. This little satchel is adorable and costs £12.15. Also, it's a pastel/ neutral colour meaning it is very versatile. 
Ciao Bella crop top

The next thing I picked up was this 'ciao bella' crop top. I thought this was too cute and I'm a huge Italian fan so I just had to buy it. It's a red/pink/brown colour and cost me £8.

I also bought these floral fabric shorts. I've been wanting to get my hands on a pair of fabric shorts for a while now but could never find the right pair. These have an elasticated waist, are black with a purple and blue floral pattern. They're really light and flowy to wear on hot days. These shorts were £10.50.

The last clothing item I bought from forever 21 was this patterned skirt. I fell in love with this, it has a black and white floral pattern and its adorable. It only cost me £6.50 which I thought was a bargain!

The last item from forever 21 was this super cute black hair clip bow. As soon as I bought it, I wore it around London for the rest of the day! I adore the way it looks in my hair, the bow is really sweet and I'd love to get my hands on more. It was inexpensive as well costing £2.40.

New Look

18th Birthday shopping haul

I've been wanting this crop top for a while now, it's really summery in this mint colour. This top is lightweight making it perfect for beach days. It was supposed to be £14.99 but I got £5 off! I also purchased the cream version.

The last thing from New Look was this plain white t-shirt with a patterned detail on the bottom. I love how simple this top is yet the bottom gives it that detail making it unique. I saw a top very similar to this in Topshop for double the price however I got it for £9.99! 

Dorothy Perkins

18th Birthday shopping haul

I didn't buy this on the day of the shopping trip but yesterday when I headed out to my closest shopping place. I've been looking out for a new bikini in the last couple of weeks and could never find one that I fell in love with or was me. However, yesterday I saw this and was like that's the one. The top cost me £14 and the bottoms cost me £9. 
The Body Shop

The body shop body butter

I finally got my hands on the body butter in the blueberry scent. I wanted this for a while but never picked it up. It was in the sale too so I got it for £5! 


Maybelline on and on bronze eye tattoo cream shadow

I only picked up one thing from boots, another item I've been wanting to buy for a while which was the 'on and on bronze' colour tattoo. I've bought this mainly for my leaver's ball, however, I've tried it out already and I'm loving it so far. 

Sleek contour palette
The first thing I picked up was the Sleek contour palette. I've been wanting this for a while but I don't have a Sleek near me, I'm really happy to finally have it! 

Picnic in the park lipgloss tanya burr

The next thing was a Tanya Burr lipgloss in the shade 'chic'. As I loved 'Picnic in the Park' so much, I couldn't wait to get another one of her products. I chose a nude shade because I've been wanting nude lipgloss and as her range is of such a high quality I bought 'chic'.

L'oreal super liner

The last beauty product was the L'oreal superliner. I wanted to try a new liner and as I've heard some good reviews on this I decided to pick it up.

Disney Store

Belle Mug disney store

I bought a Belle mug, Maria got a Cinderella one and Mel got an Ariel one! Danielle didn't get one though but we three matched, were such kids at heart. Belle used to be my favourite Disney princess. 

Other than money and tickets my parents got my twin and me these cute mice Swarovski crystal figures.

My nan got me some beautiful white gold earrings that I absolutely love.
