What I Got For My 15th Birthday!

So, if you didn’t know, on the 8th of August 2017 I turned 15.  For the day, me, my mum and my brother went to Bristol to do some shopping and we also visited a cat cafe, which was so lovely!  All the cats were so cute, and the kittens there were absolutely gorgeous; I could’ve 100% taken them all home with me.  Judging by the picture below, I’m pretty sure that you can tell how cute all the cats were and that I was in crazy cat lady heaven!

Anyway, in the morning I opened all of my cards and presents.  A lot of my relatives gave me money, which is great as I really love to buy myself my own bits on my birthday: I’m pretty bad a surprises, however the ones I did get this year were so amazing and totally perfect for me!


My Grandma got me some face masks from Superdrug, and a hair mask!  I have a massive obsession with the little face masks that come in packets; they’re really convenient and always make my skin feel super soft, so I really can’t wait to use these. I’ve been waiting to take pictures for this post before using them, so now I have I can have myself a lovely little pamper session! You can expect reviews of these, or maybe even a spa night post, I haven’t decided!

I also got a huge surprise from my brother, which I totally didn’t expect but absolutely love and have wanted forever!  He got me the Friends box set!  This is such a great thing to get me, because now I can catch up on all the episodes and my favourite bits before I go to Friends Fest in Oxford on the 24th – I’m so excited! I’ve already watched most of season 1, and I’m so happy to be watching it again.  Have you seen Friends, it’s clearly one of my favourites!

As you can tell in the picture above, I also bought myself a pandora ring with my birthday money!  I’ve wanted one for ages, and when I saw this I thought it was so pretty!  It was £35, and I’ve worn it every day since!

I also bought myself the Urban Decay Naked palette, and now I kind of want to collect all of them.  I can tell this will be my palette of choice over autumn and winter; it has so many gorgeous shimmery shades and some great cool toned mattes, so it’s pretty much perfect!  This was £39.50, and because it was my birthday, the lady serving me gave me some free samples which was amazing; I got the primer potion and perversion mascara, both of which I have tested and can say I really like!


And the final thing I received from all my friends the day after my birthday.  This was such a lovely surprise, and I can’t wait to get some gorgeous pictures with it!  They got me the Instax Mini 8 polaroid camera in white, which is so pretty and looks so beautiful in my room. They also got me some fairy lights and pegs so that I could hang up some pictures I take, and some cool camera lenses to go with it!  They’re so generous and this was such a special present; thank you to all of you, if you’re reading this!


Ok so thats everything I got for my birthday!  I still have loads of birthday money left to spend, so I’m thinking I might buy another ring or some more makeup, or save it until all the autumnal clothes come out in shops (I am really excited for autumn if you couldn’t tell!)

Also, thank you for 100 instagram followers!  Make sure you’re following me over there, im @lovesophblog_

My Top Five Favourite Youtubers

Hi guys!

Recently I’ve been watching loads of different youtubers.  Obviously, I still watch my usual Zoe, Alfie, Joe, Tanya etc etc, but I’ve been venturing into the world of YouTube and watching many different people.  Today I thought I’d bring you five who I’ve recently subscribed to and I’m really enjoying!

I’ll be linking the channel & their most recent video.

Kate’s Beauty Station 

 I have been loving Kate’s channel!  Her videos are always so enjoyable to watch and they always make me want to go shopping!  She’s so gorgeous and I love all her videos!

Anastasia – Floral Princess

Loads of you probably already know about Anastasia, but for those of you who don’t, she’s amazing! I love her videos (and her Instagram feed is gorgeous!) but she posts amazing quality videos every week and I always love watching them.

Eve Bennet

Again, most of you will know Eve.  She’s great.  Her videos are always so fun and bubbly and I really enjoy watching them!


Okay, so Ali A is by no means a small youtuber.  His second channel has close to four million subscribers.  However, I don’t watch millions of gaming videos as I’m sure you’re aware of (other than sims – Deligracy is my favourite sims channel) but Ali posts Pokemon Go videos on his second channel daily.  Now, please don’t hate me and hang your heads in shame as I am forced to leave the room, but I am slightly obsessed with Pokemon Go (note the italics over slightly, I’m just a bit more than slightly obsessed).  Anyway, Ali A’s pokemon videos have been so entertaining and really helpful to watch actually – GOD I SOUND SO SAD!!

Hermione Chantal

I feel like very few people know about Hermione.  She is without a doubt my favourite DIY youtuber.  I mean I once tried to make one of her DIY’s and failed, but everything she does looks so easy and so fun and would look gorgeous in my room (or anyones to be honest!).

I really hope you enjoyed this post guys and have maybe found more youtubers to subscribe to!  Who are your favourite youtubers?  Do we have any that are the same?  Give me recommendations.

Love Soph xx
