What I Got For My Birthday 2016

Another year, another birthday... the 26th one to be exact. I must admit my 6th one was much more fun - they always are! The older you get the less exiting birthdays are, but here is all the things that I was very luckily given. Everything from shoes and makeup, to a very cool duck named Vincent. 


So my Gran very nicely gave me some Debenhams vouchers to splurge, so with 10% off I thought why not! 

Those of you who follow me on snapchat will know I ran out of my primer a few weeks ago, so of course it being my birthday - I had to splurge. I got myself the YSL Blur primer, and so far the results are fab, really really liking it! 

The MAC highlighter is from their new strobing collection. This one is called Beaming Blush  it looks super pink in the pan, but swatched its definitely more of a natural glow, will be really pretty with a pinky blush :)

Last from Debenhams was the Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel, classic cult favourite and I can see why, it is a dream to blend.. warms the skin perfectly, without looking orange at all - love it :)

Last but not least I got myself the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray in "peach" it doesn't smell as as good as I thought - very chemically - but a good product non the less. I love it.


AJ very kindly got me a few books to add to my reading list, hopefully will get them read by the end of this month! :)

Aaaah my Heels. They are like Marmite, you either think they are horrendous, or you think they are awesome, either way I LOVE them. They will never be overly in style, but who cares when your shoes flipping FLASH! They are Irregular Choice Cinderella's.. they are STUNNING! :)

Last up is Vincent. My green wellies Duck. I have been wanting one of these for way too long, and he so lives up to expectation, he is awesome! Such a random gift, but sometimes the most random of gifts are the best ones! :)
