It was my birthday a few weeks ago, and so for today’s post I thought I’d show you all what I got. Just a quick disclaimer – I’m not in any way showing off, I just like reading these posts and so thought I’d do my own!
Two little bits I got were the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, as my parents’ main gift was money and they wanted to pad out my gifts. I have already used these and I love them a lot!
I then also got from my parents the Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturiser. I am thrilled to have this as am running out of my current moisturiser, and I want to try something a little more luxurious.
From my friend I got this washbag with stags all over it, which I adore as I love stags!
Stationary and books:
From another one of my friends, I got this Ted Baker pencil case/make up bag. I personally will be using it as a pencil case, and I think it is absolutely beautiful.
Another gift from a friend were these WHSmith gel pens. I always have the trouble of my gel pens smudging at school, and so hopefully these will change that.
I also got this beautiful agenda. Inside it has a spotty pattern, and the quality is amazing. It will definitely be helpful as I am trying to become more organised!
My friends all know how much I love stationary, and this gift is a testament to that! My friend got me this beautiful hardback notebook, which has a magnetic closure.
I got ‘Far From The Madding Crowd’ as well. I’m so excited to read this book after hearing about the film (which I have yet to see). This book is lovely as it is part of Penguin’s Clothbound Classics, and I am thrilled to add it to my collection. I have done a post about these, which you can read here if you’re interested in them.
Another present from my mum was this book, full of hairstyles. This will be so helpful as my hair is thick and difficult to tame and I am always looking for more inspiration!
From my best friend, I also got this tshirt with Tony Stark’s Arc Reactor on the front (which I am actually wearing as I write this post). This shows how great her memory is, as about a month or two ago we were discussing how we could go Marvel themed with Iron Man and Captain America shirts to see ‘Captain America: Civil War’ when it comes out next summer. This shirt fits amazingly and I will definitely be wearing it to see the film!
This gift from my best friend (she really does spoil me) is probably my favourite. It is a gold bracelet with ‘Partners In Crime’ engraved on it. This is so special as we are in a group chat with that as its title, and I adore it.
I also got this mirror from my mother, which has two sides, with one more magnified than the other. This will be so helpful when applying my makeup in the mornings, as I will be able to see more clearly.
The last thing I got from my best friend was this photo album. This is filled with a number of photographs documenting my time with my friends so far. I love this as it is so thoughtful and is amazing to look back on!
I am so grateful and lucky to have received these gifts. Again, I am in no way bragging or showing off, I just thought I would make this post because I enjoy reading them myself. I did receive money from some relatives and friends, and so hopefully will have a haul coming up in the future!
