Lush Bath Bomb & Snow Fairy- My all time fave,so yummy! Love the limited edition packaging // Soap&Glory A Great Kisser Lip Balm- smells like peach, need I say more!? // Topshop gift voucher- They know me too well // Essie Bahama Mama- Gorgeous winter polish

 London Rebel Nude Wedges

Nude studded ballet flats

Asos oversized ring

The Perfume Studio- Perfume making set, excited to try this!

 Babyliss Volume Waves- I have wanted these for ages but I have so many curling tongs, I couldn't bring myself to buy another pair. I used these for the night out and I abso LOVE them, they give gorgeous body with a subtle wave. Review to come soon!
Mark Hill Blow Dry Brush- Although it doesn't look it, this brush is huuuge! and perfect for creating volume when blow drying. My hair also took half the amount of time to dry with it being so large. 
Drunken awkward posing-oh dear!

Fireworks night makeup- pinky red lip from 17 :)

Hey everyone! Remember me!? ;) Hope you have all been well. I have been crazy busy cracking on with my final year of uni, but last weekend I had a well deserved break as it was my birthday! On Saturday I turned (the rather boring age of) 22. Last year for my 21st, I went all out and had a big party, but with this year not being so much of a 'big' age step, I decided to keep it a bit more low key and celebrate with my nearest and dearest. 

On the Saturday morning I woke up and was greeted with breakfast in bed from my lovely boyfriend. I then excitedly unwrapped some presents from both him and my family all of which I loved! I then got even more excited as I went off to meet two of my besties who were travelling up from home, before heading back to mine for more catching up and prepping for the night ahead. We then went off to the train station to pick up another one of my very good friends from home. We spent the rest of the day chatting and eating pizza before starting to get ready for the evening.

One of my favourite parts of a night out is definitely getting ready, I love pampering and dolling myself up. I had been having a dilemma for weeks over what I wanted to wear and ordered far too many options from Missguided and Asos only to send the majority of them back. I ended up with two options, a black and white striped peplum dress, and a black peplum top which I would pair with a maroon coloured lace skirt. I decided to go with the maroon skirt and peplum top, as I felt it was more winter inspired. Once ready, a few other girl friends came over and we had a giggle over a glass (or 10..) of bubbly. We actually didn't even head out till about 12:45am, so you can imagine how late a night it was! I had a fab night out, (and one too many sambuca shots) and danced the night away, to the point where one of my heels actually fell off my shoe- oops! 

On the Sunday, a few of us went to get a yummy carvery to nurse the hangover, which did the job perfectly. And on the Monday was fireworks night, so we wrapped up warm and went to an event nearby and got fish and chips on the harbour whilst watching the fireworks which was fun. I had a wonderful birthday weekend and it was really nice to spend time with good friends and all have a catch up. Anyhoo, I thought I would get this post up to share a few of the beauty related pressies that I got with you, hope you enjoy :)
