Celebrating My 18th Birthday In London

This past week I've been busy celebrating my 18th birthday!! As my sister also turns 21 three days after my birthday, we splashed out and started the celebrations with a couple of nights away in London with our parents. We stayed right on oxford street in a lovely hotel and me and my sister arrived to find birthday balloons and free champagne in our room which was such a lovely touch. We were also quick to order room service as we had to get ready to go out to watch Billy Elliot which was AMAZING by the way.
Sorry about the lack of makeup and my messy hair in the next two photo's (we'd been travelling for 3 hours!!)
The next day (Thursday) was my actual birthday so after opening my lovely presents we decided to go shopping on oxford street. Our first stop was obviously the disney store where we spent far to much money but it was SO worth it. It's honestly so good in there, if you are a lover of all things disney, its worth the trip!
After some more shopping and a quick trip to the Topshop Photo Booth it was time for my main birthday present. A trip to the lush spa!! I am the biggest fan of lush so for me, a trip to their spa was the best birthday present ever.
(sorry for the quality of the next three photos, they're taken on my phone!!)
I went with my sister who had the comforter treatment and loved it but I chose the treatment 'Hard Days Night.' It was incredible. Alana, who did the treatment, was so lovely and after I told her it was my first trip to any spa she was so understanding, making me feel so comfortable and she didn't rush me at all. After chatting about the treatment she showed me to the treatment room which was just gorgeous. The treatment is inspired by Liverpool and Beatles music so it was lovely to hear acoustic Beatles songs in the background. The pyjamas which are apart of the treatment were surrounded by a hot water bottle so they were all warm and cosy when you put them on. What I though was really sweet is that Alana later put the hot water bottle on my clothes so they were all warm when I put them back on!! The treatment lasted 80 minutes and it was heaven. Afterwards she made me a cuppa tea with jammie dodgers and a golden slumbers bath bomb to keep you relaxed when you're home. Alana also gave me a full bag of goodies as it was my birthday which I thought was so thoughtful. The bag was full of bath bombs, bubble bars, lip scrubs and face masks!!
I'll definitely be returning!!
To end our amazing stay in London, on my birthday night we went to my favourite restaurant, Bella Italia. All of our food was amazing, as were the many cocktails we had (oops!!)
