Birthday Haul

It was my birthday on Monday and my amazing family and friends really spoiled me, and I still have two presents to come from cash strapped besties that are treating me on their upcoming pay days. Those who follow me on Instagram will have seen the pictures of some of the bits I got, as I’m a self confessed Instagram whore, but I’ve been asked by some that don’t know what I got so I thought I’d pop a little blog post up showing them all.

My Mum bought me a Michael Kors bag! I’m in shock and in love, all at the same time. It’s so beautiful, I just keep stroking it and everyone else is loving it too. I was trying to order food in KFC today and the girl serving was just lusting over my bag. All I could see out the corner of my eye was the boy getting all confused over why I was taking ages waiting to go eat. They just don’t understand the love a girl can have for a bag, but expect us to understand their love of football. I also got a Primark gift card and some Euros as I’m off on holiday, IN JUST 9 DAYS! Magaluf, I’m coming back!

Since I started blogging my view towards make up has definitely changed. I am more adventurous, more intrigued to try new things AND the main one being that I actually wear make up more often. My current make up obsession is clearly Urban Decay and my friend Sam got me the Electric Palette, isn’t she a beaut! Look at the bright, bold colours in there, just think of all the fun looks I could create… And you can put it in your hair, just like hair chalk.

Following on the make up trend, my little sister bought me some Illamasqua goodies. I have been lusting over the Paranormal palette pretty much since it came out, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend £34 on what is basically 4 eyeshadows. I posted on Instagram that it had gone in sale and I was still in love with it so I was told to pick some bits on the website and that I could have them for my birthday so I also got lip gloss in Fierce and eyeshadow in Imagine. She also got me an ITunes voucher, which is a little bit of a treat for herself too because we share an account, good thinking sis!

Because it’s a 5 week month between pay days for us Debenhams workers I went out for my birthday a week earlier and got one of my presents then. I had bought a new dress to wear out that night, the Michelle Keegan Lipsy one, but didn’t have any shoes to go with it so Amy went on the hunt for me and found a pair that would go and then treated me to them for my birthday. They come in other shades and are from Boohoo for any of you loving them too.

The day before my birthday is my stepdad’s sister’s birthday and she bought me a Lipsy purse, knowing that I was getting a new bag. I love a purse, I actually have a stack of them sitting on my side because I like to have different colour options for different bags and outfits. It HAS to be a long purse though, I don’t think there is enough room in the smaller ones and everything ends up squished and overflowing and I just don’t like it!
From my Dad and the rest of the family I got money, and some kilt wearing Gingerbread men, because you have to have the ginger joke in there somewhere! I had an amazing birthday, spending the day itself at Horse Racing at Kempton Park and then went for a meal at The George, where I had some beautiful scallops.  Now I’m just waiting on my person and the boy to sort their lives out and buy me presents :p
