After a bit of contemplating and asking on Twitter I’ve finally decided to do a What I Got For My Birthday post after all. I, personally, always enjoy reading them, so I decided to write one up for you guys. But before I get into what I received, let me just say that I am very grateful for everything I’ve received for my birthday and I really appreciate everything I got and I would’ve been happy with a lot less. The most important thing for me was to just spend it with my family anyway! Now that I got that out of the way let’s get right into it.
If you’ve read my last blog post you know that I got to spend my birthday in London to go see Wicked, which was my main present and pretty much the best thing ever. But my parents also got me a pair of Beats headphones! This was my main wish ever since my brother got a pair for Christmas. The sound quality is such a difference and they are so much more comfortable to wear than my regular Apple earphones. Since I basically listen to music all the time I was so so so happy when I unwrapped these and my parents even got the color right. I have a bit of an obsession with everything white.
Another thing I got from my parents is the Urban Decay Naked 2. I already own the Naked 3 and I have the Naked On The Run as well and the Naked 2 was next on my wish list. I’ve already used it quite a lot and I think I might even like this one more than the Naked 3. Now I do feel like I need to get the Naked 1 though just to complete the collection.
So my brother has pretty much outdone himself. His birthday is in May and I already got his birthday present and I didn’t think he could top mine. My brother and I both listen to a lot of R&B and HipHop/Rap and I got tickets to go to a J Cole concert because my brother and I both love his music and though this blush can’t top that, it gets pretty damn close. Just look at this absolute beauty! I could just stare at it for hours! It’s so freaking beautiful I don’t even wanna touch it let alone use it.
If you’ve read my wish list you might know that I was looking for a new handbag and my lovely grandparents bought me this one for my birthday. I’ve already instagrammed it a little while ago. As I was in London and couldn’t celebrate my actual birthday with my grandparents they took me shopping two weeks before and I got to pick a present, so I went for this beautiful purse. Obviously it had to be white.
Since I also got some money for my birthday I decided to spend a bit of that on make up, of course. So when in London my mom and I went to Selfridges and I went for this gorgeous Tom Ford lipstick in the shade Plum Lush and this super pretty Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette. This is my first ever Charlotte Tilbury purchase and I’m already hooked. It’s such a lovely palette!
Yesterday I met up with my best friend and look what she got me! I’ve been lusting after Mac Sin for the longest time and she got it for me. It’s even in the Mac Toledo edition packaging, which is so pretty. The color is so stunning and I’m so happy to finally have it. And she also drew me this card! When I first saw it I thought she printed the images out and colored them in but she actually drew everything herself, which I can’t quite believe because it looks so perfect. I wish I could draw like her because I can’t even make a stick figure look cool.
So apart from this I just got a bit of money and some gift cards as per usual. I’m so so happy with everything I received because basically everything was on my wish list! I definitely do have some amazing family and friends.
I hope you enjoyed reading today’s post!
As always much love,
