Birthday Gift Haul - Picture Heavy



On the 9th of February, it was my birthday! If you follow me via Twitter (you can social stalk me here), then you'll know that my boyfriend was planning on taking me out for a shopping trip! Again, if you follow me, you'll know that I ended up not spending too much, because I hate Australia RRP!

The first thing I ended up with was MOR goodies! I actually don't own anything from MOR but have always wanted to, so I figured now was as good a time as any to pick some up! I chose two mini hand-creams, Lychee Flower and Blood Orange. I also chose a candle in Marshmallow Petite! They all smell incredible!



Of course a trip to Priceline was in order, which resulted in a few goodies I've been wanting for a while now. I was lucky enough to find some of the Cherry Blossom Girl collection from Essence, so I picked up the body shimmer, the eye palette, the two eyeliners and the lipstick pencil in "It's Peach Not Cherry." I also picked up an Essence Nude Glam polish. 

I also got an Australis Double Decker eyeshadow and an Australis Show Stopper lipstick pencil. I also chose a Rimmel London ScandalEyes pencil in Navy, which my boyfriend actually chose!


I had a few books on my wishlist as well, and I was lucky enough to pick up Making Faces and Timeless Makeup! I really struggle with inspiration when it comes to my make-up looks, so these will really help!


I had a few friends over on the day after my birthday, and they obviously read my wishlist! My lovely friend purchased ALL of the nail polishes from the Essence Cherry Blossom Collection! I was so pleased to get all of them and not just some, as all of the colours are very unique and lovely!


The same friend - who obviously reads my blog and realises how much I love Lush and The Body Shop - picked up a few extra goodies for me as well! She picked the Yuzu & Cocoa Bubbleroon, which looks like a macaroon! It smells amazing, and she said that this one is her all time favourite! She also got me FUN in pink! Apparently FUN can do practically anything, so we'll see how it goes! She has recently been in Europe, so she also picked me up The Body Shop Chocomania Body Wash, which I have already tried in the past and love!


My best friend figured I'd always need more space when it comes to make-up and jewellery, so she gave me this absolute gorgeous vintage looking jewellery box! She also gave me an absolutely beautiful vintage looking pocket mirror! 


My other friend, whose birthday just passed, bought me two gorgeous candles, that smell amazing, and an OPI nail polish in Pedal Faster Suzi, which is a really lovely colour! 


My other two friends gave me a bag full of goodies! This included a sheet mask from The Face Shop, a mini bottle of The Body Shop Cherry Blossom Body Wash! They also gifted me some Avon Body Wash, and a cute Lush bubble stick!


They also gave me this gorgeous perfume, which smells really unique! It's from a brand I've never heard of called Jeanne Arthes, but don't you just love the packaging! The perfume itself is called Perfume Room, very cute!


Spoilt for choice! They also gave me a bunch of cute earrings, and a very gorgeous pearl necklace! Needless to say, I definitely felt special!


My sister was a bit broke this week, but she was still nice enough to get me some goodies for my birthday! She knows I like tea, so she gave me the T2 special Melbourne Breakfast blend, and a gorgeous Maxwell & Williams love heart cake stand!


I went shopping again with my boyfriend's cash, as I hadn't spend everything he gave me yet! I decided to venture into Lovisa, but because I wanted absolutely everything, I had a really hard time choosing just a few items. My boyfriend chose the two rings, a cute mood ring which I probably wouldn't have chosen myself, but does look pretty on, and a very cute fox ring! I picked the skull necklace, but only because I'm weird and like skulls!


I'm a big fan of ponti pants, so I picked up three pairs, and a pair of gorgeous boraque leggings! 


I absolutely love boots, and I wish it was winter all the time so I could wear them all year round! I recently cleaned out my shoe collection and realised I had no classic black boots left! I couldn't go past these, as they were too cute!


I also got some small slip on booties that I could wear basically anywhere, as they'll be great for winter as well! They have little studs, which adds to the cuteness! 


My mum took me shopping for my birthday as well. The first store we went into was a shoe store, and we didn't need to go anywhere else! I got these amazing boots, which are really easy to walk in and look amazing! I'm so pleased with them! They had another pair with studs all over them, but I figured these would be more "timeless." 

With my mum I also picked up these flats, which can be worn anywhere. They are super comfortable, as well! 

I have been seeing these studded slippers everywhere these days, and so of course I had to have some. My mum got these ones for me, under $20, what a bargain! They are really comfortable and look great with anything, I've worn them every time I've been out since!

--

So there you have it! I was extremely spoiled this year by my friends and family, and I'm very thankful for their generosity! I did get a few other goodies from my other friends that weren't beauty or fashion related, so I figured you wouldn't really want to see that!

Hopefully you liked my birthday haul! If there's anything you would like me to review or share more of, just ask me and I'll be sure to try my best!

So what do you think of all my new goodies?

    I'm still thinking about getting the peach essence lip crayon. I keep buying lip products (oops), but I guess I could justify it because the collection won't be around forever and it's supper cheap...don't you think? haha
