21st Birthday: Presents

Hellooo,

You may have seen my previous post which was all about my birthday - click here to read if you haven't already :) I got some amazing presents but I haven't managed to take pictures of everything as it was taking sooo long! I love reading and seeing pictures of what others get so I thought I would share mine too :)

Well from my mum, I actually spent my money a long time ago. Firstly, a very amazing nail stamping set from MoYou which I am still yet to blog about. Secondly, my ticket to attend Brit Mums Live and you can read my post about it here. Thirdly, I had some clothes and a bag for that event too! I am glad I put my money to good use and was able to attend the event as it was a gooden! :)

Off my grandparents and uncle I got moneyyy and I have hauls coming up in next couple of days of everything I have treated myself too *hides face* - only 21 once right?! (how many times can I get away with using this excuse haha?)

Next up is one of my favourites, off my best friend I got a tattoo. I had wanted a puzzle piece for ages, I wasn't sure how it would turn out as it is a little different to have I guess but I am so pleased with how it came out :) Super cute in my opinion!

Even though my mum got me bits already, she got me presents from Corey and I was spoilt. I think she planned to get 21 presents but I am sure I know I had a bit over :) I didn't take pictures of everything because as you can tell with more than 21 things would have taken forever!

So this may be a little out of the ordinary for a grown adult but Corey was so set on getting me a Pink Power Ranger for my birthday and honestly we knew how disappointed he would have been if I didn't get one so mum got one! And next, we have Rapunzel as we took a trip to Disney Store in the week and well I have wanted a princess for ages okay - don't judge me! Corey knew instantly which one I wanted as Tangled/Rapunzel is my absolute favourite. But as you can see she is dressed as a bride. The story behind this is - Corey's favourite episode of Power Rangers, is where the Pink Power Ranger gets married and Corey has been telling me that I can only be a princess if I get married and he will walk me down with a sword to fight off the monsters - hands up if you think he will do this when the day eventually comes?! He actually even told his pre-school I was getting married and they congratulated me. Embarrassing mummy moment when I had to say I wasn't and it was in fact just from a TV episode :( But either way these two presents are by far my favourite because of the story behind them! Children say the funniest things don't they?!

Last but not least, what the other half got me and I was truly spoilt :) We haven't done special occasions for over a year but as it was my 21st I did actually get some bits, as a couple of years ago we did celebrate his 21st!
