Twenty is Plenty ❤- Birthday Haul!

Hi guys!
Today is my 20th birthday! Yes I know I look about 12.. I have today for you my birthday haul which I got from my mum and dad. I have other bits and pieces but have included my favourite bits and bobs from my presents. 

As you can see here, I have a China Glaze Nail Polish in Purr-fect Plum. I had put this on my little list of presents I gave to my mum as I wanted to try out a China Glaze polish as I have yet to do so. This colour is has a pinkish purple tone and I think you can pick it up in Sally Beauty Supply. Next I got a NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean, which I am absolutely thrilled with. I have wanted one of these since I seen Chloe from Glitteralittle on Youtube talking about them. Last but not least in this photo, although its hard to make out I have an EOS lipbalm in Summer Fruits. I have tried this already as I couldn't wait to get it open. It is amazing! It has a berry sorbet like taste to it and moisturizes my lips perfectly. 

Also as you can see in the background of this photo, I have the Viva La Juicy perfume set, with the 50ml bottle and the lipgloss, rollerball and charm. I am so happy I have this scent back in my life. I love this perfume it's so fruity and girly. I am glad it comes with the roller ball instead of carrying the full size bottle around in my handbag everyday.

Here I have my Black Oxford Converse! I have a pair already in the high top style although I would like a short pair to shove on with denim shorts or with jeans. I love these shoes! 

 This present is basically my creative choice! I love drawing and all things arty so I thought I would get a Wreck This Journal for something to work on. The Wreck This Journal is a book which is designed for you to customize and make your own via different instructions and tasks on every page. I can't wait to try this out! 

 These brushes have been on my shopping list forever and I just have never actually picked them up. I love Real Techniques Brushes and I can't wait to do my makeup with these before college! This is the Core Collection with the Foundation Brush, Buffing Brush, Contour Brush and Detailed Face Brush. I am most excited about the Buffing Brush due to the hype it has recieved! 

One of my bigger presents is the Primed For Lovin tin by Benefit. I am so chuffed that my mum picked this up for me, as I know that Benefit is one of the more expensive beauty brands. This tin has Porefessional Full Size, Benefit They're Real Full Size, High Beam Full Size and Mini Sugarbomb Lipgloss. I am glad I now have the Porefessional full size tube instead of the mini samples as I was afraid that they would run out! My favourite mascara as you know is They're Real from Benefit so the full size of that is also a bonus for me.

Now I have saved the best for last for all you beauty fans! My lovely mum picked me up the Boots Beauty Advent Calendar as a last minute birthday present. She had heard me talking about it and I mentioned I was going to buy it but I was worried I would end up with no budget left for the rest of the month after bills etc. So I was lucky enough that my mum picked this up and saved me a pricey purchase. I cannot wait to open this and see what beauties are inside!

Hope you enjoyed this post!
Keep smiling xx
