What I Got For My 17th Birthday

Saturday, February 07, 2015 Sara Wallflower 24 Comments

Hello everybody!

You may or may not know I’ve celebrated my 17th birthday on 31st January. And besides getting old, I also hate getting presents. I somehow find it meaningless to spend money to buy me things- I mean, it’s just a birthday. I’ll probably start doing my driving test this summer, so I need quite a lot of money and that’s why all of my relatives just gave me money. Because of that I’m only going to share with you what my friends bought me. I would really like to show you all the candies too, but well...I ate them all. :)

My three friends and I, we all celebrate our birthdays in less than a month apart and we all actually wrote on a piece of paper what we want for our birthdays. That was a great idea, as it was easier for me to buy four presents for them and I got what I wished for.

I admit I’m obsessed with any lip products. I have way too many lip balms, lipsticks, lip glosses... So when I saw that my friends got me two lipsticks and two lip glosses I wanted to try them all right there in pizza restaurant.

Well you can also tell from my post Rainbow of Nail Polishes- Summer Nail Polish Favourites I have an excessive number of nail polishes. Thanks to my friends I have even more of them now! I got a blue nail polish, Essence’s Be Berry Now! and Essence’s Candy Crush. I can’t wait to use them all. I also got a nail file, which means I should probably take more care of my nails. But due to climbing are my nails really short and scratched.

I got Essence’s eye shadow (Irresistible lavender dream), this lovely bracelet and some new earrings (earrings are always the right thing to buy me). My sister’s best friend and my friend got me this beautiful plant, which I assume it’s a type of a cactus. I may or may not told her I always forget to water flowers, I’m just that type of a person who forgets about plants and even people.

And last, but not the least- here’s what my sister made for me. She actually told me on the morning of my birthday that she didn’t made me anything, because she had to watch marathon of American Horror Story. I was so angry at her, I didn’t talk to her and I said a few words to her I regret now, but her presents are always the best! And then, when my dad came from work, my parents and my sister gave me my present and then she also gave me what she made for me. She drew some lovely pictures for me, there are M&Ms (my favourite candy) on the cake, a lyrics from There’s a light that never goes out (my favourite song) on the bag... She wrote a beautiful verse and she overwrote the entire lyrics from There’s a light that never goes out. She’s just the sweetest sister in the world, isn’t she?

I can’t even express how grateful I am to my family, all of my relatives and friends. They always make my birthdays special and unforgettable.

I will also write some reviews about the makeup I got, do you have any special requests?

I hope you enjoy reading blog from another teenager!

Love, Sara Wallflower
