What I Got For My Birthday/October & November Favourites


Considering my birthday is the 27th of October, it's only taken me nearly two months to do this blog post. *face palm* Although, because I've been getting so much use out of my birthday presents and haven't been using much else, this post can double up as an October and November Favourites post as well. 
I just wanted to say (but without sounding like I'm bragging, even though I was completely spoilt because it was my 21st!) that this isn't everything I got for my birthday, I also got some lovely clothes, a bag, sweets and other bits and pieces as well.
Also, you'll start to notice a bit of a theme throughout this post. *cough* rose gold addict *cough*

Make-Up Bits

When my parents asked me what I wanted for my birthday, it was no surprise to them when I said that I wanted the Zoeva Rose Golden Brush Set. These were on my wish list for ages because it seemed like everyone had them, but not only that, they looked and sounded like gorgeous brushes and they definitely lived up to their expectation! As an extra surprise, they got me the NARS Dual-Intensity Blush - Fervor, a gorgeous peachy pink shade and rose gold shade, because I haven't tried anything from NARS before. They also got me the The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Eyelash Curler, just to add some more rose gold into my life!
When my boyfriend asked me what I wanted for my birthday, again it was no surprise to him either when I said that I wanted the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette. I love the Urban Decay Naked palettes, they are my absolute favourite when it comes to quality and shade range. I can't wait to find the time to do full reviews on everything!

Jewellery Bits

As my main present from my parents, I wanted something that I could keep forever and say that I got it for my 21st birthday, so I got the Olivia Burton The Dandy Grey & Rose Gold Watch as they have the most beautiful, delicate watches which always stick to a classic style that will never go out of fashion. As a surprise, my boyfriend got me the Pandora Rose Gold Ring because he was sneaky and read my 21st Birthday Wish List. Whenever my best friend and myself are buying presents for each other, we never tell each other what we want and just leave each other up to our on devices, so I had no idea that she got me a Storie Rose Gold Necklace (out of stock, similar here), which I absolutely love as I have loads of charm bracelets, but not a charm necklace. I also got quite a few Nomination Charms because I only had one charm on my bracelet before my birthday (Birthday Cake Charm), so my best friend got me the Sisters Charm, her Mum got me the Cocktail Charm and my boyfriend got me the White Heart Plaque Charm (out of stock, similar here).

I really was well and truly spoilt for my 21st birthday and I'm so grateful for what I got, but my favourite part was getting to spend some much needed time with my family and friends, which should always be the most treasured part in my opinion.

  1. Every time I see those Zoeva rose gold brushes I think I fall in love a little bit more, but I don't wear enough make-up to justify buying them (I could just use hem as decorations). Looks like you had a great haul.
