What I Got For My Birthday

So back on the 26th of August I turned 22! Yes I tweeted all the Taylor Swift gifs humanly possible, you may have even unfollowed me because of it all. But I had a whole day to take advantage of it all so really who could blame me!? I wasn't planning on doing this post but after asking on twitter (through a poll) a lot of you wanted to see one, so here I am giving the people what they want. It was a good day though because not only was it my birthday..it was also payday...oh and the last day of work, yup after 6 months I left the airport and it was a glorious day!

So I had to get up at 3am for work so the celebrations started after that and when I got home. It's so great not having to set 2:30am alarms anymore but thats a whole other post in itself! 
I got a lot of beauty bits this year which is probably no different than any other year, but I'm so happy with everything I got and couldn't have asked for anything else. 
So I had 3 main gifts this year, the first was my Makeup Mirror, I have wanted one of these for the longest time and when doing up my room my parents decided to buy it for me and I couldn't be more obsessed with it than I already am. I absolutely adore doing my makeup with the lights on and it's just so much fun and yeah..I love it. I have a room tour post coming soon so you'll see it appear a few times!

My parents also bought me a new 42inch plasma tv, now I'm not one really into tv's like as long as it works and I can watch my programmes on it thats fine for me. But the Tv I had my dad absolutely despised and he was always telling me I should buy a new one, of course I never listened because I'd much rather spend the money on makeup. However again because I was doing up my room they decided to surprise me with my new tv.

Finally my third main gift was the Limited Edition Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Bundle. We won't go into the details of how stressful it was to get this, we'll forget all about those feelings...for now! But oh my goodness I'm so happy I got this set, I absolutely adore everything in it and it's bloomin fab. Although customs did try to put a downer on me by charging me €50 customs I literally did not care because I wanted this set so badly. Over the coming weeks I'm sure I'll have reviews up, but so far I'm just in awe with everything.
So starting with Mac, I got the ever so famous 217 Blending Brush which I forgot to include in this photo. However I will say I now know why everyone goes crazy for them and I kind of want another 10 of it! I can literally use it to do my whole eye makeup look and I just adore it. I can definitely see myself investing in another one pretty soon to be honest.

Also from Mac I got the Look in a Box set in 'Sun Siren'. It includes a Lipstick, Blush, 2 eyeshadows, lipglass, lipliner & a mini blush brush. I've yet to try Mac makeup as all I have so far is lipsticks and a foundation, so I was super excited to try other products. I will say theres one shadow in the set that I am just in love with and have worn it everyday since getting it. Of course though thats another post to come!

I also got some bits from Makeup Revolution and Freedom Makeup. I haven't bought anything from these brands in a while so I was so excited when I got my hands on the few items because they were things I had wanted to try either because people said they were amazing or they just looked amazing!
Starting with Makeup Revolution I got a huge Ultra Bronze which is great because you can never have enough bronzers. Also what I really like about this one is it's actually matte so it's great for contouring also.
I also got their Ultra Strobe Cream, the Ultra Contour palette & the Radiant Lights palette. Of course I've tried them all out by now and I must say the Strobe cream smells absolutely amazing. I'm still undecided about the Radiant Lights palette, I was a tad let down by it to be honest..I still don't think anything will beat the Sleek Solstice palette. But maybe with a few more uses my mind might change.

From the Freedom range I got the Brow Pomade in Medium Brown and I was honestly so excited about this. I have been wanting to try a brow pomade for the longest time but wouldn't order one online incase the colour shade was drastic, this shade however is perfect for me and I honestly don't know how I've went so long without one I'm my collection.
Also from that range I got the Pro HD Brow Palette in Medium Dark and oh my goodness! Out of everything I got beauty wise I swear I was most excited about this, seriously you should see inside it's an absolute dream! I had tried one of their brow duos before but to have this different array of shades now is just a bloomin dream!
Do you know what the best feeling in the world is? Seeing that two toned striped pink bag with a Victorias Secret logo on it, it just instantly makes me excited anyways onto what was inside.
I got a Tease giftset, I absolutely love this as it's such a strong scent for me as I usually opt for sweet floral scents and this is just the complete opposite. It also comes with a perfumed lotion with the same scent and I love these things. I always find if you apply a dab of this first on the likes of your wrist and then the perfume it lasts even longer.

I also got a mini Victorias Secret Angel perfume and a travel sized Nude Coconut Fig which just smells absolutely divine! I also now own the ever so famous Strawberries and Champagne body spray and I never want to run out of it. Seriously I've been spraying this non stop since receiving it, it's just so nice!

Finally I got three pairs of their underwear and I'm obsessed at how pretty and girly they are! You can see a better snap of them here on my instagram.
Finally whats my birthday without something a tad bit childish!? I'm a child at heart. While I wasn't a huge fan of the film The Secret Life of Pets I fell in love with the adorable Gidget and so this year I got two notebooks featuring the adorable little fluff ball. Come on I mean just look at them! Not that I needed more notebooks but gosh they're so darn cute I cant wait to start writing in them.

Finally I got a Light Box. At this stage I feel like I was the very last person to own one but I finally have one and I'm so excited about it. It's so fun putting different sayings in it everyday and of course it looks pretty bomb in the background of photos!

And thats everything I got for my 22nd birthday! There was a few bits and pieces here and there that were just too hard to photograph or just weren't interesting enough to show you (practical for me though, just don't photograph well). As always this was in no way a bragging kind of post and I'm super grateful for everything I received.

Have you tried any of the products I got for my Birthday?
