So as most of you know it was my birthday last week, on the 8th. I had the most amazing sixteenth birthday you could ever had. I had a birthday party on Friday and Saturday, I ate loads of cake, pizza and pasta and had a lot of fun!

My family and friends spoilt me a lot so I thought I would share my birthday presents with you. Please don't think I'm bragging or showing off! I got loads of lovely replies whether I should do it or not.

My main present is the one I'm most excited about; my trip to London! My parents knew that I wanted to go to London for such a long time, so they thought it would be nice to give this as a special 16 birthday present. I honestly am so happy with this! My mum and I will be leaving for London on 26 February and arghjah (this was excitement) I'm going to be such a tourist and I will shop 'til I drop!
