For my birthday I did get some Birthday money and I bought these awesome books I've been lusting after for a while, I am currently stuck into Leave Your Mark and it's insanely good, full of tips and useful advice. I am planning on doing a review on them both once I've finished them.
Is it just me who REALLY appreciates Birthday cards?! I love the fact that someone has taken the time to write a message to you, and that feels really personal and often lasts a lot longer than a Birthday present, I tend to keep my favourite 5 cards every year and keep them for the future. I love looking back at cards from years ago, always makes me smile.
I was originally just going to write sweets for the tittle but it turns out it is mostly not sweets, in the photograph anyways. I got an awesome popcorn pan which I am yet to use but it looks super fun and the packaging caught my eye. When me and Luke visited an American sweet shop in Birmingham I found some of my favourite chewing gum which Luke purchased for me, along with some mini nerds. Finally in the photograph is an adorable hotdog phone case from Paperchase, I love 'out there' phone cases.
Before Christmas my mum told me she wanted to get me something special for my 21st and asked me if I had any ideas, I've wanted a Michael Kors watch for ageeees so it seemed the obvious fit. The watch caught my attention because of it's big watch face, and the beautiful rose gold colour *blogger cliche much?* It is a great way to keep something special for a long time.
My Grandparents also bought me some beautiful charms, for my bracelet including a 21 charm and a floral clip and I love them both and they also treated me to a beautiful tiara ring which I have been wanting for a while and finally got and it hasn't left my finger since (unless the gym and showers count, then it has). My best friends Sophie and Kee brought me a gorgeous charm which I wasn't expecting and was so overwhelmed with how nice it was that I nearly cried. The final charm on my bracelet was from my uncle who gave me some money, and I decided it would be worth while me buying another charm as a keepsake for my 21st, this again isn't photographed but it is a beautiful cat bowl with an diamond encrusted fish bone inside of the bowl. Perfect gift for any cat lovers!
Another present from Luke was some beautiful workout clothes including these beauties from Pink Soda who are a company who sell their stuff in JD it reminded me of the Victoria's Secret PINK clothing but I actually preferred this! The colours go really well together, and it gives me the freedom to be even more creative on the bottom half.
Of course some Make-up was going to make this list, I completely forgot to photograph the Kiko liners which were popped inside of the Make Up For Ever box, but I got 3 amazing colour liners. Along with two MAC lipsticks in the shades Viva Glam II and Plumful. I also got a lovely Nars setting powder and a MAC foundation which I didn't have at the time of photographing. Finally an amazing set from MUFE, which you can see pictured and includes mascara, eye-liner and waterproof makeup remover.
I hope you enjoyed this Birthday haul, I love reading them so I hope you do too!
