disclaimer: this in no way, is me bragging about what I have. I enjoy reading these posts and watching YouTube videos of these and thought, why not? I’m extremely grateful for everything.
Hello anyone reading, today’s post is, well as it says in the title…what I got for my birthday! My birthday was one week ago today on the 25th and I am so grateful for what I got honestly I had such a good few days.
My biggest present was probably the party that my boyfriend and friends planned behind my back, I knew it was happening but I didn’t know any details about it (drove me a little insane because I like to know what’s going on and having a say but it was soo good). It was an American themed bbq with the closest people in my life and from what I can remember it was an Amazing party and everyone had such a good time, I on the other hand did not enjoy the hangover which I’m pretty sure I’m the only person who had. This happened on the Monday after my bf and bff taking me to the cinema to see Mamma Mia 2 (amazing but so sad so take tissues!) which was also an amazing surprise.
Now onto the physical presents, my bf did SO well like I almost cried. I wasn’t expecting what he got me and I was genuinely overwhelmed. First thing I opened was *takes deep breath to stop getting emotional* a pair of black Dr Martens. Now I have wanted this pair for SIX YEARS, forever wanting to buy them on payday but not wanting to spend the money and here they are, on my lap. I hit Con and begged for him to tell me they were on sale and that he hadn’t just spent that much money on me but he couldn’t because they weren’t! Honestly they’re my pride and joy right now and if you know me then you know my fave colour is black too. The second present he got me (like the boots and party wasn’t enough) was a lovely set of marble makeup brushes by Glamher Booth. I tried these out on my birthday and they’re really good! They’re soft but not so soft that they don’t pick up product and they blend really well. I’m excited to keep trying looks with them! I believe you can find these brushes on Beauty Bay.
From my family I got a pair of Remington hair straighteners, money which I bought some GOOD bits with that I’ll leave at the end of this post, and also some of them donated to a charity for me which is what I asked for. Honestly I’m so grateful for everything I’ve been given I never expect anyone to get me anything so when I do get bits it’s amazing and especially when it things I’ve wanted for ages!
Finally, before I show you the things I bought with the money I was given, my boyfriends mum spoilt me and got me a really nice drawing set from Royal and Langnickel and a sketchbook too which I LOVE and can’t wait to get drawing again!
Now for the two things I bought with the money, I purchased the Morphe 30pc master brush set that comes with the belt and honestly I’m OBSESSED, to make it even better it was on sale so I actually got it for cheaper than it should’ve been! I also purchased the Morphe 350M palette, I can’t wait to play around with the colours and create some nice warm looks!
So that’s everything for my birthday, I love absolutely everything I got and I can’t wait to play with it all. A massive thank you to everyone who spoilt me!
Sincerely, S x
