What I Did For My Birthday | West Midlands Safari Park | Lush, New Look, The Girl On The Train And Sleek.

Oh hi there guys :) 

I hope everyone is okay and well?!

I am totally hormonal and in pain today but it's all fine because I am determined not to let it get the better of me. Instead, today I have been eating pick 'n' mix, watching films on Netflix and have been cuddling my Lion hot water bottle. Ha. 

I really want a job now guys, it really is beyond a joke now. I just don't understand why it isn't happening, I am applying for something new every day and I get zero emails back. Just recruitment agencies offering me awful jobs. 

Anyway, onto the purpose of the post. So guys, I turned 29 yesterday... That number makes me want to be physically sick in my mouth. I am a year away from being 30 years old, what a liberty. When you get older you don't really get excited for your birthday anymore, it's just another day! 

On Saturday ( 6th August) myself and my friend Jess went into Worcester to have something to eat and have a look around the shops. It was such a pretty day, really warm (I was obviously wearing black, as you do on a hot day, ha). We spent around 4 hours there and by the time I got home I was shattered. 

Jess bought me lunch for my birthday which was really sweet of her and I got a couple of things from New Look.

When I got home on the Saturday I did my usual thang and cleaned Cody out and gave him all of his meds. I then ran myself a bath and used my new Lush Bubble Bar - The Comforter, I put my music on and spent the next couple of hours singing my heart out in the dark. 

Ha, that's how I roll people!!

Sunday the 7th is my burrrfffdaayyy and yesterday was a good day. 

I have to get up early anyway to see to Cody and start his meds at 8 am. I did all my morning chores before I went downstairs, where I was greeted by parents, balloons, banners, cards and presents. 

So cute.

Check out the Guinea pig birthday card off my auntie!! So freaking cool man!! I am totally framing that!! 

So yeah, I decided this year again that I wanted to go to the Safari Park. I went last year and it was awful, it was rammed and I couldn't get a decent picture as all the animals were being shooed away by the park rangers. 

It was just me, Mum and Dad going this year as my brother was busy. He stayed at home to look after the dog and check on Codes. 

We left about 12 pm and when we arrived at the park we were told that it was packed and it would take roughly around 2 hours to get around the animals. 

I was pretty chilled this year as I bought a telephoto zoom lens especially for trips like this so I knew I could get a good shot from a distance. The weather was beautiful yesterday, it was hot but there was a breeze so it was pretty perfect. 

It actually took around 3 hours to get around the park but it was nice to be able to actually stop and take some decent photes!! 

A couple of things that lets the park down for me is, the animals aren't stimulated enough - their enclosures are basic, minimal and boring. They need things to keep their brain and body motivated. The other thing is when the animals are interacting with the public the park warden's usher them away and that really pee's me off. 

Why?! We have paid money to see the animals not look at grass and seagulls! 

Most of the animals were out yesterday which was super cool, the only ones that weren't really were the white Lions and I really wanted to see them but they always go to the back of the hill when it's warm. I will say, my new lens was freaking awesome yesterday. It worked really well and when I was far from the animals it zoomed right in and produced a really clear picture. I was so happy. 

AND, I actually fed a Giraffe!! I have never fed one before as someone told me once that they suck your whole hand in so it scared me. It didn't and it was really gentle. I LOVE feeding the animals. 

Next year for my 30th I am SO feeding Lions somewhere. It would be a dream come true!! 

It was literally one of the best days yesterday, it was really laid back and fun. I bought a little white Lion teddy and my Dad got me a Lion snow globe. We also did the Lemur walk which was super cute and I managed to capture some really nice pictures.

When I got home, around 6-6.30 pm I cleaned Cody, took my makeup off and chilled. I ordered a takeaway and had my birthday cake. 

I loved my birthday this year and I was spoilt. I had money off all my family members, Cody bought me a Lush bath bomb - Ha... Okay Mum and mum and dad got me some pick 'n' mix. My brothers girlfriend also bought me some Lush stuff too. 

Everyone knows me so well!! 

Here's some pic's for y'all.

Loving Sleek at the moment, I wanted to try their liquid illuminator and Precious Metals highlighting palette. I was super annoyed though as I bought these from Superdrug at the normal prices. I went to Boots after and these two were two for £12. I was abso gutted.

So that was my birthday... I will leave you with the pictures I took of the animals at the Safari Park before signing off at the end. 


Enjoy :)

    I also just purchased the Sleek Highlighting Palette: I haven't used it yet though. I'm excited! It's my first Sleek product.

    Lush, animals and new make up - what more could a girl want for her bday? Hehe.

    What a lovely post.

    Love
