Check me out, posting two days in a row!
Disclaimer: This post is not intended as boasting or anything of that nature, I’m discussing some gifts I received for my birthday.
You may remember, if you have a good memory and have read previous posts, that my birthday was a week or two ago – May 19th, I turned 21.
The universe even gifted me a free book:
Firstly, myself and my two closest friends went to Liverpool for a night out. We didn’t last long but my outfit was cute, if I do say so myself.
- Dress: Misguided £12
- Shoes: New Look ( they were on offer so I’m gonna say) £20.
- Anklets: 187 Mob £8
I had a lovely night and the heels were a dream to walk in, which is high praise coming from me because I hate heels. Heels and I are not friends but at 5’2 there are occasions I gotta just grin and bear the pain.
Now onto the gifts and things I did. To keep it short and simple ( like myself) I won’t list every present I received but just a few.
After the night out at Liverpool I received my Tarte 7 for £50, a cute bracelet and some lush bath bombs!
You can see my previous blog post on this range.
There was also a day trip to the Escape Rooms which I loved! If you’ve never heard of Escape Rooms it is a live action game where you are locked in a “themed” room for an hour and must solve the puzzle to escape – teams of 2-5.
Finally I got to spend some time with my family and have a meal and a chit chat. As I live away from home, for uni, I see my family, and my sisters, sporadically and mostly for given occasions mostly birthdays.
My mother is apparently a mind reader and got me the whole collection of The Mortal Instruments. I’ve stared watching this show on Netflix and it reminded me that I heard of this series through tumblr years ago now and I couldn’t find the books anywhere, at the time, even my library had a massive waiting list.
Once I’ve finished reading The Colour of Law I hope I can start this series!
This mobile phone projector is a gift from one of my sisters and is something a little different and one I’m trying to get the hang of working.
My oldest sister, who loves to buy beauty products even more than I do, got me a bag of beauty products.
Here are pictures of some of the products:
I loved all the presents I received and many of them will make their way onto this blog for the benefit of you, the reader. Which is why not every gift made it onto this post – if any of my family or friends read this.
I have so many posts planned for the blog the list is getting out of hand. Tomorrow we have Sunday Book Club to review a 20p book that is just, wow.
More importantly in the next few weeks of beauty I have my collab with NYX, review on The Ordinary and Harry Potter Make Up Brushes.
Stay blessed, Love Em x
