Birthday Haul // Gifts and Buys


I turned 22 on Monday, some of you may already know this if you follow me on Twitter. However, I was celebrating from Friday to Tuesday which is one of the advantages of having a larger family. I posted the birthday tag on Monday '22 things I've learnt in 22 years.' although I wanted to share this post with you sooner but a busy schedule delayed it, it's finally here - This is what I got and bought for my birthday;





My wonderful other half got me this dressing table as a surprise. I'd wanted one for so many years but for some unknown reason I'd never made the purchase. He put it together and hid it in a room at his house. I knew something was going on and I had all sorts flying around my brain but I never thought that it could be a dressing table and to put it out there, I cried - not that 22 year old's should be crying on their birthday, but I did - floods of tears, but they were happy ones! 


He also got me this perfume. When we met I was wearing Kylie Minogue's Sexy Darling which I am running seriously low on. He wanted to get me a nice bottle to have on my dresser and knowing that I love Kylie's fragrances, he opted for the Music Box - Which I must say, I love the bottle and the scent is simply beautiful. With hints of 'Sexy Darling' it definitely is Kylie's signature scent I can smell although, Music Box is definitely more flirtatiously fruity. 


My Mother-In-Law got me this jewellery making kit which I was really excited over. I've never had anything like this before, and who doesn't love jewellery? I had a dabble with it yesterday and made this bracelet (below) which I haven't taken off my wrist yet. I don't know why but there's just something different about wearing something you've made yourself. No one else has one quite like it. Who am I wearing? ME! aha. 



Pretty neat for a first attempt..... 


I've wanted a pair of Stan Smiths since they came back into fashion but I thought I'd leave it as a suggestion for when I start getting asked 'what do you want for your birthday?' which my mum followed up on, I'm crazy in love with them, thanks momma!

My boyfriend also got me this tracksuit which I'm also in love with! it's fleece inside for extra cosiness during fall/winter. 




My sister also got me this No7 cleansing brush kit which Is simply amazing! I've used it every day and night since I got it and it's working wonders. (review soon!) 

I used to wear exstentions all the time but had a break from them for a good couple of years in the hope my hair would become healthier and grow longer, which I achieved, I got some new ones for my birthday to help give my hair a little more length and thickness and I'm in love with them!


I'm obsessed with boots, I have 100's! I possibly have every style you can get but I still buy more.. 
I got these with some birthday money I received. I couldn't resist! Over-the-knee, check! 


I've had a splendid birthday, Lovely gifts, lovely meals, lots of shopping and lots of great company to go along with it. I also had my living room and bedroom revamped which will be in a 'room tour' post that's coming very soon, I'll also be showing you what other things I bought for my birthday in order to make those revamps happen. Stay tuned!
