What I Got For My Birthday 2017



It was my 26th birthday on Friday and after writing about what I got last year I thought it was only right to do a What I Got For My Birthday 2017 blog post. These are one of my favourite posts and videos, probably because I'm a little nosey but also because it can give me some ideas for what to get for others. I was completely spoilt rotten this year, by everyone, and it wouldn't be possible to talk about absolutely everything I received, this post would be miles long with photo after photo. Instead I've focused on a few gifts that could be consider my main presents, some things that made me go 'wow' and some things that appeared on my wishlist a month ago. To sum up my birthday presents there's a few definitive themes including prosecco, mojitos, rabbits and gold. 



Michael Kors Cindy Pale Gold Dome Satchel Handbag 
This was my main present from my fiance and I love it. Michael Kors has been my favourite handbag designer for years and as soon as I spotted this pale gold bag in TK Maxx I couldn't put it back. This specific style is no longer available in Michael Kors stores but they've got lots of other gold bags and some really, really similar to this. This was obviously a lot cheaper than a full price Michael Kors handbag as well. It's a really good size for day to day and out shopping. I really like the long strap and short handle combination. I've already swapped over my purse and handbag essentials.


Amazon Beauty Advent Calendar, Revolution Retro Luxe Vault, PopaBall Shimmer 
One of my best friends bought me the Amazon Beauty Advent Calendar and another bought the Revolution Retro Luxe Vault. These beauty gifts are absolutely amazing and I was so excited for both. I have no idea what's in the advent calendar and I can't wait for the 1st of December. I still can't quite believe I'm going to have a new beauty product every day on the lead up to Christmas. There's some great brands in it and a few I've never tried before. The Revolution Vault has 10 lip kits, that's 10 different liquid lipsticks and lip liners! I'm so excited to try them all out and with so many shades I can't imagine needing to buy a new liquid lipstick again. My girls and I are all big Prosecco fans and we love the PopaBall Juice bubbles so I was really excited by the prospect of being able to make my Prosecco glittery with the Rose Gold Shimmer.


Mugler Alien Eau De Parfum 
Mugler Alien is my favourite perfume... ever. I ran out back in September and it's been a long few months without it. My fiance took note of my birthday wishlist and bought me a nice big bottle to keep me smelling good. You can also see my huge soup pan tucked in at the back. You know you're an adult when you're getting excited about a pan! I'm looking forward to trying out some new Slimming World soup recipes for my lunches.


Prosecco Cookbook 
Another Prosecco present but this time a whole cookbook dedicated to the wonderful drink. This is such a quirky little gift and I'm looking forward to trying out some of the recipes, especially the dinners! How cute are those rabbit slippers? They're so warm and have been a big hit with my bunny. I also got some rabbit pyjamas so I'm sorted for cosy nights in. Another gift from my wishlist is the Sass and Belle fruit and vegetable lunch bag.


Sparkle Joma Bracelet, Rose Gold Fitbit Strap, Benefit Hoola Lite
I've mentioned before, especially when it comes to my nails, I'm an absolute magpie. I can't resist anything glittery and sparkly and that's exactly what my friend was thinking when she saw the new Joma bracelets. I love a little Joma bracelet and this one is going to look fab on my wrist next to my new rose gold Fitbit strap. This makes my Fitbit Charge 2 look more like a watch and a lot dressier than the original plastic purple straps. Another gold gift, another beauty gift and another from my wishlist my fiance bought me the Benefit Hoola Lite Bronzer and I'm so excited to use it on my pale skin.


I have no idea how this beauty gadget has never been brought to my attention before. The StylPro sounds like a gimmicky way of washing and drying your makeup brushes, a boring old chore that I always put off. In fact, the StylPro Brush Cleaner is amazing and it 100% works. I was in awe of how quickly I could wash and dry my makeup brushes and actually make them look as good as new, not my normal half clean attempts. My bestie was on the ball with beauty gifts this year.
