What I Got for my Birthday..

A couple of weeks ago, it was my birthday! It was actually my 21st and I got completely spoilt and treated like a princess. Side note - please don't take this as me bragging! These posts are my favourite (I can sit for hours reading these, or watching them on YouTube), and I also find them really helpful if you're looking to buy someone a gift or compiling your own birthday list!

My family is very small - even my extended family isn't that big so when it comes to gift giving, we all seem to go a bit over board! I must also mention that I also have an incredibly generous boyfriend! I've decided I'm not going to go into who gifted what, it's unnecessary.

First up, we have his beautiful palette by Charlotte Tilbury in The Vintage Vamp. It's a beautiful quad with 2 matte purple shades, and 2 shimmery shades - one purple tone and a gold. This palette is beautiful and really makes a statement without you having to put too much effort into your eye-look at all! Also from Charlotte Tilbury is this beautiful lipstick but I've not a chance to play with that yet!

In my wardrobe, I have a really gap for evening bags because I typically go for quite large handbags, which I don't want to take out on a night out! So I asked for a small, black evening bag and well, I got one! This is actually really deceiving because I can fit so much in this bag!

I also was given the matching makeup bag, which is so cute. I've always wanted a 'nice' makeup bag but I get scared of them getting ruined inside! There are some really expensive ones but I just don't think I could trust myself, so this is perfect!

Jo Malone Sweet Almond and Macaroon candle. This smells absolutely incredible! I tried to buy this for myself on 2 occasions but I was stopped, because it had already been bought for me and I was so excited when I opened it. It smells nothing like anything else from Jo Malone but it's beautiful. The only thing is, I don't want to burn it...

I was extremely lucky this year and also received a Kate Spade handbag, which I'm totally obsessed with. I did pick this out, along with a few things so it was a surprise as to whether or not I would get this. I've used it non-stop since I opened it!

I also got given some money for my birthday so I put it all together and treated myself to something I've wanted for a long, long time.. A Mulberry Purse! It's so beautiful that it deserves its own post! So that will be up this week, I promise!

I'm extremely grateful for all of my presents and I feel so lucky to have been gifted so much! I'm totally in love with everything I was gifted and so excited to start using everything I've shown!
