What I got for my birthday



So yesterday was my 22nd birthday (cue me singing Taylor Swift’s 22 on more than one occasion, hehe). I had such a lovely day and got some wonderful gifts that I thought I would share with you. Since I love a good haul post and I’m also a little bit nosey, I’m a big fan of ‘What I got for my birthday’ posts and I hope that you like these kind of posts too. So here’s what I got for my birthday;


Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit – Nails Inc Best Dressed Collection

I can’t wait to start trying out Cleanse and Polish. I feel like I’m the only person in the beauty blogging community who hasn’t used this before. And as for this Nails Inc collection, I’ve had my eye on this collection for so many months and I’m so excited to swatch some of these amazing special effect polishes.

I’ll be doing a review of both of these products in the upcoming weeks.


Topshop Leopard Print Satchel – Alphabet Bags Make Up Bag 

I'm completely in love with both of these bags.


Topshop Lace Trim Socks

I don’t know how I didn’t own any of these lovely little socks before so I can’t wait to start wearing them to add a little something different to my winter boots.


The Way Way Back – The Place beyond the Pines – About Time – Now You See Me

I’d asked for three of these DVDs in my Birthday Wishlist post but my mum surprised me again by adding a little bit of Gosling into the equation. For the past couple of birthdays I’ve always received a Ryan Gosling DVD so it’s now becoming a bit of a tradition.




Disney Dumbo Pyjamas – Rosie for Autograph Pyjama Shirt – Peanuts Snoopy Cuffed Pyjama Bottoms

I think my mum had definitely been reading my blog or heard me going on and on about the lovely Snoopy and Dumbo pyjamas. She also picked up a beautiful pyjama shirt from the Rosie for Autograph range as she knows I’m pretty obsessed with all of Rosie’s gorgeous items.


Florence & Fred Shopping is my workout sweatshirt

This is basically my life mantra emblazoned on a sweatshirt. And it doesn’t hurt that this instantly reminded me of the Wildfox Shopping is my cardio sweater.


Haribo Gold Bears

And of course no birthday is complete without some sweets!

I hope you enjoyed this post. I’m away to eat some more birthday cake and choose a movie to watch from the DVD’s I received. Which one should I watch first?

  4. Happy belated birthday, hope you had a lovely day and enjoyed your presents :) I can't think of anything better than watching a Ryan Gosling film, whilst painting my nails and eating sweet treats!
