My 16th Birthday

November 16, 2017

Today is my birthday! I’m turning 16 which is known to be an important age as I can start driving and because I’m now a young adult there are a lot of other opportunities. I am trying to book my driving test for next weekend as I’m busy with my dance concert and formal (I’ll do some posts on them) this weekend and I need a bit of time to “study” for it.

I had a ‘Sweet Sixteenth’ party with my friends on Saturday night which was really fun. We talked a lot, ate a lot of food and played an interesting game of truth or dare. I would show you guys heaps of photos but I don’t think my friends would appreciate it so here is a photo of Jedi and I at the party that I think it really cute 🙂

Today, after everyone wished me ‘happy birthday’ at school, I went with my mum and sister to get some sushi which is one of my favourite foods (I got an avocado one and a veggie tempura one which were both delicious). Then, I watched Zoella’s most recent vlog on Youtube with Jedi which was a great way to wind down. Later on, my family and I went out for dinner to get pizza which was a perfect way to end my 16th birthday.

I was also really blessed to receive such amazing gifts from my friends and family and I wanted to share them with you. Keep in mind that I don’t want to brag about what I got, I just wanted to show my appreciation for them and add to previous posts such as ‘Lip Balms and Hand Creams’ as I got some items related to these posts.


The two books I got were ‘Eleanor & Park’ and ‘Throne of Glass’ which I’ve really wanted to read for a while so I was so grateful that my friends bought me these. I also got a $20 voucher for the book shop QBD but I’m not entirely sure what book I’m going to get yet as I have so many books I want to read.

I was so lucky to receive so many wonderful gifts from mainly the shops Lush and The Body Shop. I absolutely love all of these products as you know from ‘The Body Shop Products’ as they smell amazing and contain such great quality ingredients. Also I didn’t include a bath lily I got and a frosted plum soap as they are being used in my bathroom right now.

Coconut Soft Hands, Warm Kisses

Twilight Bath Bomb

Honey I Washed The Kids Soap

Zoella Snow Sparkle Lip Balm

Unfortunately the Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Mist and Frosted Plum Soap were not on The Body Shop website.


Most of these items were from my kind relatives from overseas and I love them so much! The bracelet has a ‘K’ engraved on it which is so cute and the necklace and earring match which is nice.

Unfortunately, the headband and bracelet were from England so I don’t know what brand they are and I can’t find the necklace and earring set on the Lovisa website.


I got these three gorgeous bags from my friends and I really like their designs. The sequins bag is so satisfying to change from gold to black and vice versa, the little purse is perfect to fit all my pocket items for school in and I absolutely love the material and colour of the other bag.

My friends happened to give me two gifts related to pineapples and I think they are both so adorable! The cactus is perfect for decorating my room and the pineapple glass is so nice to have drinks in.

I also got 2 chocolate bars and $65 from my friends and my parents gave me the gift of paying for my driving test, license and driving lessons which was so kind of them.

Also, sorry I didn’t post last Thursday but I had all my exams on the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and didn’t think it was worth posting some poor quality post just for the sake of it and taking time away from my studying.
