Birthday Haulin'

Monday, December 28, 2015


One of the best parts of any birthday are the presents, amiright? As I said in my last post, my parents took me and the Mr out to dinner for my birthday. After dinner they surprised me with a birthstone Alex and Ani bracelet- so pretty! Of course, I ended up going a little nuts with online shopping a few days later. I had about a zillion coupons and birthday freebies for every store imaginable, so I clicked the "Place Order" button a few times... 

I picked out a couple of books that the Mr bought for me. One I've always wanted to read (The Great Gatsby) and one that had recently been released to continue the Miss Peregrine series I've been making my way through (Library of Souls). Because a woman can't say no to a handbag, especially one that's on clearance for $20 (with a coupon code), I went for the Steve Madden BPrivate crossbody clutch in the black and brown version. Baublebar's coupon sucked me in as well so I chose the Crystal Flurry Collar Necklace. I wore this out to dinner recently with a faux leather peplum top and it made the whole outfit look so much more festive!

I went a little makeup shopping crazy and placed not one, but two orders from Sephora. I picked up my birthday Nars lip pencil minis in Cruella and Rikugien. (So excited to try Cruella!) I also tossed into that order a repurchase of the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara, a Bobbi Brown shadow stick in Shadow (a cool gray), and the Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Guava/Moonstone. The second order was the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz, which I've wanted for ages and have been using daily for a glowy boost, and the new Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette (review to come!).

So there you have it, this year's birthday haul. Not too shabby and I'm sure there will be reviews coming your way for some of the makeup bits that I picked up, so keep an eye out for that! Also, just wanted thank you for all of the positive and sweet comments on my last post- it means a lot to have such lovely readers! Hope you all had a great Christmas!
