So here’s part two! What I got for my birthday. This isn’t a braggy post, I just love seeing what people get for their birthday (nosey I know 🤪) but its a good insight into their interests and personality. I also thought it would be a nice way to show my appreciation for all the lovely gifts that I received this year.
So settle down with a cuppa and let’s take a look.
I’ve categorised this post in order to make it an easier read, enjoy!
One of my faves ♡ from my little niece Evie-Mae. This make up bag is so cute!! I love it, and it’s a great size too.
I also got a few make up items. The Tanya Burr ‘Glow Du Cocoa’ palette with a bronzer, super shimmery highlighter and a lip gloss that adds a lovely goldy glow to your lips. This palette is going to be perfect for summer and when I’m on holiday.
I also got two highlighter palettes from my sister Sarah. These are so pretty 😍
The Revolution Pro HD palette, the highlighter palette of dreams.. So pretty. I also got another trio of baked highlighter, also by Revolution.
Sarah also got me some of the Primark nails which are really cool.
I was also given some of Barry Ms new Holographic nail varnishes in their Metals range. I’ve been trying to get hold of these for a while. Definatly check those out.
I LOVE bath stuff, bath bombs, yummy smelling shower gels & soaps so I was super pleased with these gifts!
I love the Wilko ‘Fruity’ shower gels, the scents are amazing.
The Lush set that I got was awesome as I havn’t tried any of the items in it before and I love trying lots of new Lush stuff, shower gels & soaps, exciting.
I also got a couple of the Marshmallow bath oils which smell incredible. One of my new faves and your skin feels so soft afterwards.
My husband Tim also got me something I have wanted for AGES!! A bath caddy tray, and it is as epic as I’d imagined. It fits perfectly across the bath, holds my iPad & or phone up safely, has a cup/glass holder and an area just to put your magazine, chocolate etc. Perfect for any bath lover.
I also got a few of my favourite Ciders, which are perfect in the summer when it’s lovely and hot outside 👌🏻
I also got some of my favourite chocolate, the ultimate, a Terrys chocolate orange (that didn’t make it past my birthday) a bag of the segments, crispy m&ms and more! YUM.
I love my ((Bounce)) fitness classes and I finally got a couple of pairs of their leggings. Aren’t they awesome?! So pretty. Love a pair of jazzy leggings.
Harry potter inspired chokers!! Need I say anymore!! Epic.
This purse is so awesome. It’s in the style of the Hogwarts acceptance letter, with the hand written font on one side and the Hogwarts crest & seal on the back, just like the envelopes. SO cool and perfect, if like me, you have loads of loyalty cards as it’s got loads of space inside.
Primark are killin’ it with the Harry Potter merch atm and you can never have too many socks, a birthday staple.
Reading is my single most favourite hobby. I got a couple of novels for my birthday that I had found on Amazon and that sounded really good.
I love Ruth Jones so I was really exited to get her first published novel, it’s called ‘Never Greener’. I also got a novel called ‘The Child’, it sounds so gripping so I can’t wait to get my teeth into that.
My sister also got me the ‘A list a day’ notebook from Paperchase and it is right up my street. I love a list. Any stationary lovers out there, you need this. Such fun!
Carrying on with the Ruth Jones theme, I got the last series of her TV sitcom Stella, which I love. I havn’t seen this series & Christmas special so I can’t wait to watch the next instalment in this brilliant series (I can’t believe it’s the end 😭)
I also got ‘The Greatest Showman’. This requires no explanation. A-MAZ-ING. If you havnt seen it, 1. Where have you been? & 2. GO NOW AND WATCH IT.
I was very fortunate to get some lovely vouchers too. Primark, my most fave shop, EVER.
Superdrug, which is perfect as I love buying my nail varnish and make up from there.
& New look, they always have such pretty clothes too.
This calls for one thing.. A SHOPPING SPREE.
I got this gorgeous keyring from my two nephew’s, I mean, how super cute is it!?! Love it.
I also got this epic Harry Potter colour changing glass. Perfect topped up with one of those ice cold ciders at a BBQ this summer. Keepin’ my fingers crossed for sun.
My lovely husband Tim also got me the epic present of an Italian themed cooking class. I love cooking and if you’ve followed me on here for a while you’ll know that we LOVE Italy & Italian food so that is going to be so epic (& tasty) I can’t wait.
I hope you enjoyed this post! I’ve been very lucky this year and am super pleased with all my lovely gifts ◇
Until next time,
