What I got for my Birthday!

July 09, 2016 Charlotte 0 Comments

Friday July 1st marked my 21st birthday! I was very lucky and spoilt by my friends and family, as always. My parents took the day off and we all went out for afternoon tea- I plan to do a post on that too. Unfortunately, I was working the weekend of my birthday so we celebrated the weekend before. I got some amazing gifts! My Auntie, Uncle and Grandad got me a B E A U T I F U L Tiffany&Co bracelet. The heart charm on the bracelet is engraved with my initials on the underside. It is nice to have something special and wearable, I can't take it off!

My main gift from my parents was a pair of RayBans! I LOVE them, I definitely won't be able to wear them as often as I would have been able to back in Los Angeles. BUT still, I always wear sunglasses to drive and I LOVE THEM (did I say that already?). RayBan have a new "design your own" feature on their website and I was playing around with it with my Mum and we created these! Mum even got my name printed on the arms and my birthday date on the case- how sweet!

From my Nan I got some lovely beauty treats. We went shopping together in Fenwick and I picked up a scent I have had my eye on for a while- Chanel Chance Eau Fraïche. I used to spray it on a sample paper every time I passed through Nordstrom. We also grabbed a Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick in No. 9 (Nude in Private) which I have been wearing non-stop. Its very high gloss and works well on its own OR over other lipsticks. It is a very subtle pink colour. I will definitely be repurchasing this- it feels so great on the lips.

I had a lovely 21st birthday with my family and I am so grateful for all of my gifts. I am excited to see what this year has in store for me... (apart from a dissertation!).
