As you may know from my 26 Things About Me post, it was my birthday not so long ago. And with a birthday, comes great presents ! From my own family of course, but also from my boyfriend’s family. They were so kind to gift me a sort of bundle with different products, it’s a beauty blogger’s dream !
Let me show you all those beautiful things that I got for my birthday this year 🙂 :
This one is a micropeeling product that exfoliates your skin in 30 seconds, making it smoother. I definitely can’t wait to try it out !
I’m already a fan of le Mini Macaron‘s gel polish, so I was happy to add a new shade to my collection ! If you want to know more about le Mini Macaron’s DIY semi-permanent manicure kit, check out my review about it !
A finger mask ! As awesome as nail polish can be it always damages my nails in the end, so this is a veeeeery welcome product.
I was looking for a nice highlighter, and there it is ! I’ll certainly play around to create cool glowy makeup looks with this, just wait till you see.
This is one of those peel-off products to protect the edges around your nails while you apply nail polish. I think every messy girl needs this in her life !
I always love a K-beauty product, and this one is particularly cute ! A ‘lil panda with a rosy blush and lipstick combo inside.
A Black Pearl, from Vietnam :
This one is from my grand parents who were on vacation in Vietnam, they gifted my a black pearl from there ! This is a real living pearl, I find it fascinating that nature made it so dark. And since it’s alive, I’ve been told that it likes to be soaked in seawater, i’ll bring it with me to Colombia this year !
And the most beautiful gift is from my lovely boyfriend, who decided to give me a very fancy Swarovski necklace. I love the multi colored crystals, they make this piece really original and this is what I love about it : it’s something special.
Of course, it’s not a birthday if there’s no cake (at least in my book), and oh boy, what a cake ! It was a strawberry cream cake, definitely one of my favorites. And I mean, how pretty is this ? :
And that’s it ! Most of times since i’m all grown up now, I get a money enveloppe and buy myself a present (or I just use it to pay my bills), and i’m not complaining at all ! But it’s always nice to get proper gifts from time to time.
Also don’t worry, I’m going to review every single one of those products, I swear ! 😉
Which gift did you prefer ?
