A Birthday Haul

I feel like birthday hauls have always been rather controversial. You either love them or you hate them. I received some gorgeous gifts for my sixteenth birthday, and I decided I just had to share them with you. Now, quick disclaimer: I'm not trying to show off or anything, I just wanted to show you my lovely presents. Also, these presents are from my parents, so if you're reading this: THANK YOU!

For some reason, my trusty little Samsung phone decided to stop playing ball, meaning I could no longer make/receive texts or calls. So a new phone was happily welcomed into my life. It's the Moto G, and I love it. It's running the latest version of Android, and it does exactly what I want it to! Yay.

I've been lusting after a Mac quad for the longest time, and I'm so excited to use it! I'm not going to go into too much detail now, as I will be posting about it soon! I also received an Amazon voucher, which I spent on Arctic Monkey's album AM.

My Mum completely knows my style, and I love all of the pieces she chose. The striped dress is from Topshop, the daisy cami is New Look, the bobbly jumper is H&M and the dress is also New Look. My friends and family were also really generous - gifting me lots of lovely bits and bobs. So again, if you're reading this: thank you!



  1. I agree that birthday hauls are a complete love or hate kinda thing :) I personally love them to pieces, I think it's a unique way to celebrate someones birthday on the internet ♥ It's great that your mother completely gets your style, they're super cute pieces :) Fantastic post, and a belated Happy 16th Birthday! xo

  2. I really want to get the Arcitic monkeys record :)! x
