It really does not feel like I've lived 19 years on this planet, but as of last Sunday, March 13th, I entered the final years of my teens. I like to think that the number of years you've lived has nothing to do with the number you feel; I can be as immature as a 12 year old at times, then act my age when I need to. My blog was established when I was 17 and at 19 I couldn't imagine life without it; after years of school, now doing a gap year and going to university in September, things are just as unpredictable. Today I thought I'd share my goals for this new chapter, the gifts I received (my favourite part) and a few of my favourite posts from the past while. When was your birthday? What are your goals for the coming months?

Since leaving Apple (post here) almost a year ago now, I've missed it so much. I used to have an iPhone 6 Plus and it was just amazing, however I switched to android to try out Samsung's Limited Edition Note Edge and whilst it was an amazing phone, Android just wasn't for me. This year I've been lucky enough to receive Apple's iPhone 6s in Gold, not as big as my last iPhone but it took me very little time to adjust to size. I am just so happy with it, it's exactly what I've been missing and fits perfectly in my life.

I also got Apple's 4th Generation iPod Shuffle in matte black, the perfect companion for the gym, running or taking music anywhere with you, minus the bulk of a phone. I've always wanted a Shuffle to go running with, it's as easy as clipping it to your sleeve, or the bottom of your shirt and your good to go. It holds 2gb worth of songs so you can get at least 5 hours of songs and you can easily differentiate between playlists. As little as it is, there are many really clever settings, so whilst there's no screen you can do everything you need to do.
The makeup bits I got this year were from Sleek, I've already been really impressed by their contour palette and I'm so excited to start using and trying out these new goodies. The I-Divine Eye Shadow Palette in Enchanted Forest is a fantasy inspired group of shades with names such a 'Fairy Godmother' and 'Happy Ever After'. I love the colours included in this collection they're really pigmented and are such exciting shades that I can't wait to use more of. I also received my first Matte Me matte liquid lipstick in the shade 'Birthday Suit' described as a 'classic wearable nude', it's so soft and easy to apply. I did some testing and no amount of water would get it off, for the price its extremely good. 
My best friend kindly bought me The Little Book of Cocktails by Rufus Cavendish, a vast collection of essential recipes and tips for those who cocktails. I can't wait to start making them, they're cleverly labeled with skill levels so you can progress from knowing nothing about cocktails to a seasoned guru. As well as this she also got me the most gorgeous Jack Daniels embossed whisky glass, because I love Jack Daniels; this gift is perfect. I'm really a whisky drinker but I really took to Jack Daniels and coke, so I can't to use this glass for just that. 

To go with my new phone, I got the Case-Mate Barely There iPhone 6/6s case in metallic Rose gold. Whilst my phone isn't Rose Gold, the shade metallic shade goes very well with it and I just love how it feels. It may be 'barely there' but it protects the phone in all the right places and buttons are just as easy to press as before. I'm not keen on bulky phone cases so the size and feel of this phone is ideal for me. 

This year I didn't really set myself any 2016 goals, so I thought turning 19 was the perfect time to think about where I want to be this time next year. Here are some of my goals:
  • Become fully Fluent in French (almost there!)
  • Start learning Spanish and Italian
  • Go to University in September 
  • Reach 1000 Bloglovin' followers 
  • Save up enough money to go to Ibiza with my best friend 
  • Find the perfect foundation
