Birthday Recap 

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:

My birthday, as it has done for many years now, fell between my exams so celebrating it proved difficult but somehow my friends, family and I managed.

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.

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.

Inside this gorgeous bag – anyone else getting beach vibes? – was eyelashes, false nails, eye lashes… you get my drift. 

Here are pictures of some of the products:

The last product is amazing and totally surprising. I’ve not heard anything about these lipkits from Barry M but oh myyyy

I won’t go into too much detail now but the formula is amazing and the colour pigment is stunning.

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
