What I got for my 19th birthday

This post is up so late. I've just been busy with university things but let's forget that, onto the post! It was my birthday on the 31st of March and I got a few little pressies from my friends and families. I thought I should show you guys.

Nina Ricci L'Eau - A sweet light perfume. Perfect for the start for spring time. 
"A fresh, fruity and floral fragrance. The freshness of frosted neroli, with also the softness and femininity of apple blossom, the sensuality of gardenia, and full bodied white musk... The breeze of youth, bright, light and sensual."

Barry M’s Gelly Polish - This polish is in the shade Huckleberry, which is part of their new shades for the Gelly collection. A lovely pale blue which kinda reminds me of easter eggs.
Topshop’s  Nail Polish- Now this polish is a lovely off white shade, it almost has a tint of brown which gives it’s off white colour. It's called Exposed. Oooo sexyyy aha. I am almost surprised at the amazing quality of this polish. Two thin shades dried so quickly and was so opaque. Amazing.

MAC’s Diva - Oh my god. I’ve been waiting so long for this lipstick. I had saved up for this to buy at the end of the month, but my favourite person in the whole world surprised me with it as a present. I am in love with this lipstick, it’s a deep red brown toned lipstick. It has a matte finish and works well with my complexion. Can’t wait to wear this on nights out.

Real Techniques Duo Fibre Brushes - I love these so much. My old brushes were just a set from Costco I think, and when I washed them for the first time the hairs started to falling out. I was left with hair all over my face when I applied my powder or contour powder. So getting this for my birthday was very lucky. Muhaha. So happy with this, my favourite would have to be the powder brush, it glides onto my face very well and just makes applying powder a little bit special.

ASOS Laptop Case

So I got a Macbook for my birthday and I really needed a case or a laptop bag for it. It is actually difficult to find a stylish or modern looking laptop case or bag. I started looking at retail stores because you can be surprised at what they offer. 

I came across ASOS and they had Laptop Cases. They were simple and modern even though it's supposed to be for a guy. I still bought it though. It was a good bargain, just £14! They also have another version were the straps are brown. But I prefer the whole case being one colour. My 15 inch Macbook fit's perfectly in the case with enough room to fit the charger too.

Looks good as a clutch too. Perfect for carrying around campus or just going to the library. Just need to find a bag to fit this in now ha.

Tanya Burr's Lipgloss Review - Vampire Kiss

Tanya Burr, you amazing lady. Her lipgloss and nail polish collection is beautiful like herself. With a range of 12 lipgloss shades and 10 nail polish shades. I still have to get my hands on more of her collection but every Superdrug I go into they're always out of stock, which is annoying for me but brilliant for her because her collection is so good. Very well thought of. 

Here's me wearing Vampire Kiss on a night out. It's so soft and creamy on application. Plus it smells really good. It reminds me of sweets. mmmmm.
I still have to get the lipgloss in Champagne Toast and the nail polish in Riding Hood. Get your hand on this collection at Feel UniqueSuperdrugCloud 10 Beauty & Pom.

Don't you love magazine freebies? - May 2014

Sorry I haven’t been posting, been piled up with work for uni. Save me. Anyways let’s get back to the post. I haven’t done one of these freebie posts in ages. I saw InStyle on the shelves and I saw a little blue box covering the magazine and recognised that shade of blue. EYEKO.

This months issue comes with Eyeko’s Lash Curler. Ooo but not any Lash curler, no, it’s the Blue Velvet Lash Curler. It’s so cute, the little handles are covered in Blue Velvet. Feels very posh while curling your eyelashes.

It curls the lashes very well compared to the one that I got from Superdrug ages ago. Love it. Get it while they’re still on the shelves.
