My Christmas/Birthday was magnificent :) My day was filled with happiness, texts, phone calls etc. I spent the day with my mom and she cooked a dinner of my favorite foods for my birthday. It was a pretty laid back day. I felt so blessed to celebrate my 28th birthday on Christmas Day and to see another year!
Now on the Birthday/Christmas goodies!
You’re going to notice that most of my gifts are beauty related. I needed and I wanted to try some new items. I’m currently in the processes of reorganizing my makeup storage. I want to thank the people who I"m mentioning in this post that got me these beautiful gifts, and helped me celebrate my special day!
From My Mom
- Urban Decay Vice 2 (Birthday)
- Urban Decay Naked Palette (Christmas)
- Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette (Birthday)
- Sephora Rose Gold Brush Set (Birthday)
- Mirror (Christmas)
- Snowflake Mason Jar (Christmas)
Birthday gift from Sephora
Items that came with the palettes and free gift items that came with purchase
I love this amazing lady so much! She is always so thoughtful, loving, and giving. She is the best and I appreciate her so much! I love all these wonderful gifts!
From My Best Friend
- Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
He is so amazing to get this from Sephora! I was happy to see that bag :) I know that he and most guys don’t understand the awesomeness of receiving makeup lol, but he gives great gifts!!
From My Other Best Friend
- Muji Acrylic Drawers (2 large drawers and 5 drawers)
I’m so glad that my other best friend got me these drawers to reorganize my makeup! She is so awesome! I barely could contain my excitement when the FedEx man knocked at the door! lol I can’t wait to reorganize my makeup collection! She gives great gifts too!
I want to thank my mom and my two best friends once again for making my special day wonderful. I truly appreciate everything they have done for me. Even if I didn’t receive one gift, that’s not the meaning of Christmas/Birthdays. The true meaning of holidays and birthdays are spending it with the one’s you love and care about. So for that I am truly grateful to have them in my life! I love them so much!!
Now for the birthday gifts I bought for myself (My Birthday Haul)
- theBalm Palette
- Lorac Pro Palette
- Avon Goodies
- Ultra Color Lipsticks
- Makeup Brushes
- Lip Liner Pencils
- Victoria’s Secret Holographic Limited Edition Train Case 2013
- Victoria’s Secret Holographic Makeup Bag
- BH Cosmetics 120 Color Palette 1st Edition and 7 count makeup brushes set
- An Infinity Scarf I made for myself
I took the pictures with the flash on camera to give the true color of the Victoria's Secret items

Ok I know I splurged a little on myself lol What better way to celebrate my special day than to treat myself to some items :) Besides, I everyone should take time out to treat themselves once in a while. Side Note: If you get the Victoria’s Secret Holographic Train Case, be careful with the zipper :) and the item’s are currently on discount for the Semi Annual Sale online and in stores.
I'll be writing a good bit of reviews on my gifts in future posts!
