Hello everyone, I hope you're all doing well and enjoying this gorgeous weather we're having today. I can't believe I haven't posted in over a week and it actually feels a little odd to be writing a post again! As you may know, it was my birthday on the 22nd August and it turned out I had a very busy weekend ahead of me, so I couldn't find much time to write a post. But I'm back today with a birthday haul plus a couple of things I picked up around my birthday. I am by no means bragging or boasting about the presents I received, so if you are someone who doesn't like these sorts of posts then please feel free to skip this one - there are plenty of other posts on my blog you can read!

Ted Baker Leda Large Wash Bag | LINK
You may have seen in my wish list post that this was the present I was really hoping to get and thankfully my boyfriend did! This Ted Baker wash bag is absolutely gorgeous and is the perfect size to fit all my makeup and beauty essentials for a weekend away. I actually used this for when we travelled to London to see The Lion King (which is amazing!) and I loved it! This is definitely something I'll get tonnes of use out of.

Nails Inc French Manicure Collection | LINK
I absolutely love Nails Inc polishes so I was really happy that my family found this French Manicure Collection. It comes with everything you need to create the perfect french manicure: South Molton Street (pale pink), Floral Street (white), Albert Bridge (speed dry top coat), a cuticle pen and a nail file. Each of the polishes are full size and it all comes in a pretty silver bag which I'm sure will come in handy. I haven't tried this properly yet but if you would like to see how I do my french manicures using this set, let me know in the comments!

Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer | LINK
This is my favourite eye shadow primer so I'm really glad to have it in the full size! I've had a sample size ever since Christmas and it's lasted me so well considering I use it pretty much everyday. I will definitely review this soon as it is a product I love! 

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation Sample | LINK
When my mum bought the Benefit primer she was also able to pick me up a little sample of the Hello Flawless foundation! I have tried this foundation before but the shade I have is way too dark for me. This sample is in "Believe In Me" Ivory and is a perfect match! The coverage and finish is really nice and now I'm very tempted to pick up the full size (my poor purse!).

Real Techniques Starter Set | LINK
I've needed some more eye shadow brushes in my collection so I'm really glad I received the Real Techniques Starter Set! These brushes are so soft, work really well and are completely versatile. I highly recommend Real Techniques makeup brushes, they're the nicest brushes I've owned!

Cath Kidston Set Of 3 Notebooks & Pen | LINK
I know these aren't really beauty related but I love Cath Kidston products so I thought I would include them! I received these gorgeous notebooks and pen from my neighbour and they're going to be perfect for college in September. I also think one of these will become my new blogging notebook as my old one is getting quite full now!

Maybelline Color Tattoos in "On And On Bronze" & "Metallic Pomegranate" | LINK
The last few items are products I picked up myself on a recent trip to Boots! I had a little bit of birthday money so I decided to finally pick up the Color Tattoos in these two gorgeous shades. "On And On Bronze" is a beautiful bronze/ gold which is perfect for everyday and "Metallic Pomegranate" is a deep berry shade that will be a great Autumn/ Winter colour!

Maybelline Baby Lips in "Pink Punch" | LINK
Maybelline was on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots so naturally I wanted to pick up a Baby Lips to see what all the fuss was about! This was the only tinted shade left and is a pretty natural pink shade. I'm not blown away by this lip balm - yes it feels nice on the lips, has a nice colour and is relatively cheap, but I don't think I'll be picking up any more of these as they're a pretty standard product!

Stila "In The Light" Eye Shadow Palette | LINK
The final thing I picked up in Boots was the Stila "In The Light" palette. This is something that's been on my wish list for a long time now so I'm really excited to have it in my makeup collection. The shades in this palette are all neutral and it kind of reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked palette. You also get a Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel which is a dark brown shade, perfect for everyday wear! This is a gorgeous palette and definitely one everyone needs in their life!

So these are a selection of things I got for my birthday and I'm really grateful for everything I received! I would also like to say thank you to everyone who wished me happy birthday either through Twitter, Instagram or on my blog! I hope you liked this post and maybe gave you a few ideas about what to buy someone for their birthday. If there are any products you'd like to see a full review on, please do let me know!

  10. Wow what a lovely birthday haul! I'm incredibly jealous. The nails inc colours are so pretty and feminine and I've been lusting after the maybelline colour tattoo in metallic pomegranate for a while! I'd love to know your thoughts and opinions on the benefit stay and don't stray primer. It'd also be great to see a few looks, swatches or reviews from the stila palette! Hope you had an amazing birthday!

    1. Yes I'll try and do the french manicure review, I might need to get a little practice in first because I haven't done them in a while haha! The Benefit primer is the only one I own at the moment, so I don't think I can do a comparison! xx
