What I got for my Birthday

If you follow me on Twitter you may know that I turned 23 on Easter Monday and I got some lovely presents, so I thought I would share a few of these with you.


My sister Georgie got my these amazing Disney Princess Pyjamas from George at Asda.  I love them, not only because they are Disney but the trousers are cuffed leggings rather than usual baggy bottoms.

Nic’s parents got me Into the Woods on Blu-ray! I saw this when it was in the Cinema and loved it so I am quite excited to watch it again.  They also bought me the Soap and Glory Rich and Foamous body wash which is one of my favourites because it smells good enough to eat!

From Nic I received the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish.  You may remember I had a small sample a while ago and loved it but never got round to buying the full size.  To fuel my obsession with Once Upon A Time Nic got me this amazing T-shirt as well as the Captain Hook Pop Figure.  He also bought me the Zoella Favourite Things bag!

From my Sister Katie I got two Waitrose candles which both smell amazing.  If you know me you will know that I like anything with Foxes on so my sister Vicki picked up this really cute Fox Money box.


My Grandparents bought me Kate Moss Lilabelle perfume. It’s a nice everyday fragrance.  Nic’s parents bought me quite a few Makeup bits, the first being the Real Techniques Sculpting Set.  Real Techniques brushes are my favourite!

Again, from Nic’s Parents I got this gorgeous Milani blush in Tea Rose.  This is a lovely dusty pink and I have been wearing it everyday.  They also got me the Sleek Sheen lipstick in Barely There. I can see this being well used during the summer months.

From Makeup Revolution they got me the highlight in Golden Lights.  This is a beautiful golden highlight.  I have been applying this with the Real Techniques Fan brush to the tops of my cheeks and love the effect it gives.

This is the Sleek Highlight Palette in Solstice and it is one of the most beautiful makeup items I own.  It includes 1 cream highlight and 3 powders.  They are all so beautiful and lovely and soft to apply.

Nic bought me three of the Tanya Burr Palettes, Perfect Brows, Hollywood and Galaxy.  The Brow Palette has replaced my Milani Brow Fix! The Hollywood Palette is a selection of lovely warm browns while the Galaxy Palette is more cool toned.

If you would like to see a whole blog post of any of these items let me know.

Have you tried any of these products?
