What I Got For My Birthday – 2017


On 7th January, I turned 27 years old! I always love watching videos or reading blog posts on ‘What I got for my Birthday’, so I thought I would do my own blog post this year. If you’re like me and your birthday is in January, you will understand that birthdays aren’t always great – everyone is broke after Christmas and on some form of diet or drinking ban. Nevertheless, my friends and family always come up trumps with eating birthday cake with me, sending my beautiful cards and always giving my some lovely presents – here is what I received –

As everyone know I love a bit of Soap & Glory  so I got spoilt rotten with S&G goodies! The first set came from my best friend, Emily who brought a gorgeous Revolution Blush Palette and the Soap & Glory Pink Pamper set. This cute triangle bag contained some of the S&G cult favourites; Face Soap and Clarity 3 in 1 Daily Detox Vitamin C Facial Wash; Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream; Heel Genius Foot Cream; Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel; The Scrub of Your Life Body Buffer and The Righteous Butter Body Butter. And all in travel sized too which is sooo handy for up and coming trips in 2017.

The other two sets came from my fiance mum and auntie – they know me so well! From my fiance’s mum, she brought me a Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker set containing four mini lipglosses in; Sugar Peach, Spun Sugar, Pink-Out-Loud and Bare Enough. These are so cute, I’ve always loved these tingly lipglosses. Ash’s auntie got me some more lip products with the No7 Lip Locker Lip Crayons – I’ve never tried these before, so I’m excited to start using these gorgeous shades. She also got my the Soap & Glory Zingle Belles set containing; Sugar Crush Body Wash; Sugar Crush Body Buttercream; Sugar Crush Body Spray and Super-Sudsy Shower Puff. I’ve you haven’t smelt the Sugar Crush scent, I encourage you to go and have a smell of it when you’re next in boots – it’s a lovely sweet citrusy scent which I love using for morning showers.

I also got some lovely tech pressies. The first came from my other best friend, Jenn, she brought me this handy, pretty Oliver Bonas Mobile Charger. The second piece of tech was the FitBit Charge 2. I actually brought this with my birthday money as I’ve been looking to update my old FitBit for ages. In comparison the my old FitBit (which was the old Flex) this does so much more; tells the time (a simple featured I was excited about because my previous one didn’t), tracks your heartbeat and also tracks certain exercises such as weights and running.

As well as birthday money, I also received Debenhams Vouchers. My mum and rest of my family know much I’ve loved the Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks, so they brought me vouchers so I can continuing adding to my collection. I jumped online with my vouchers on the day of my birthday and purchased four new lipsticks as well as the highly recommended Kat Von D Tattoo  Eyeliner – more of these in an up and coming blogpost.

Finally but by no means least, my lovely work colleague also surprised my with a lovely birthday card and also a 3-month gift card for Look Fantastic beauty boxes. I’ve only been there four month and they already know how much I love my makeup and beauty goodies, so they decided to get me a voucher to enjoy some new beauty boxes. I thought this was a fantastic idea and a great way of trying a beauty subscription which I’ve never tried before! As soon as I receive my first box, I will let know what’s it’s like.

Thank you to all who made my birthday very special. I love all my gifts and already enjoying using them all!
