Birthday Haul and Celebrations!

 
 

My Birthday seems like a long distant memory now and this post was de-railed by the arrival of this months wonderful Glossybox but better late than never right?! I was a very lucky and spoilt girl this birthday and by the looks of it most people turned to my wishlists for gift inspiration! The Bioderma was actually a gift from me, to me but I had to sneak it in here somewhere. My mum got me a couple of things from Origins (Never a Dull Moment and VitaZing) and the box it all came in was a like a lucky dip, pulling out sample after sample, I was loving it! Along with my full size items I also got samples of Modern Friction, Ginzing, Brighter by Nature, A Perfect World moisturiser, a sachet of Mega-Bright and a deluxe sample of Checks and Balances, phew, What a list! I think that Origins usually have some good offers on receiving samples if you buy a certain product or spend a certain amount so it might be worth signing up to their emails as I get all the sample know how to my inbox. I also got some MAC, Benefit and YSL goodies along with a few Real Techniques brushes. My best friend was making sure that I'm BBQ ready with wine glasses and a cocktail jug and thank god for Joel's mum and dad replacing my Enrapture styler because my hair needed its oomph back! My lovely Joel was obviously fed up of me moaning about my knotty hair and dropping my phone as I am now the owner of a shower Tangle Teezer and the most beautiful Mulberry phone case but now I'm going to wave goodbye to any shred of social life I have because Gossip Girl season 6 awaits!! 


Enough with the presents and on with the celebrations! Unfortunately I felt horrendous because I'd caught a stupid cold but with that aside I started the day with a champagne breakfast, a bit of a Boots browse, then my best friend Beth came over to bully me into drinking blackberry vinegar (Absolutely FOUL!!!) and then another one of my lovely friends held a little bit of a tea party for me with cakes and one my favourite dinners (lasagne, chips and garlic bread, yummy) and an early night for the germ riddled Birthday Girl! I got the chance to put all my new make up to the test for a Saturday night round Loughborough (My outfit of the night is up here) and spent Sunday not feeling my best on the sofa wrapped up in a blanket watching Gossip Girl. So that's it for 2012's birthday - champagne, cake, a hangover and another year older!!
