Personal // What I Got For My Birthday

I am 22! Woo-hoo! 
I am not really a birthday fan. I much prefer Christmas, mostly because I find Christmas less disappointing. I always find my birthday is a bit of a non-event. Especially since I share my birthday with Kim Kardashian and only one of us can shine!

I thought I would give you a little glimpse into what I got for my birthday. I find these posts can be a bit braggy so I hope it does not come across that way. I personally love these types of posts, mostly because I am mega nosey and love to know every insignificant detail!

Before I start, I shall let you know that in my lifetime, I have received some rather shitty gifts. Like, seriously. I know it is the thought that counts and it is, but I do believe that it can be quite evident when no thought has been put into a gift at all. One year my aunt gave me a tube of Pringles for Christmas. To make it worse, she gave me ready salted, not even one with a particular flavour. Sadly, that was not the worst gift I have ever received as this birthday, someone else greatly outdid themselves with my 'shittiest gift' prize. I would love to share it with you but I won't just in case the person who gave it to me happens to read this. If you would like to know what I received then feel free to tweet me (@cheap_wednesday) and I will more than happily send you a photo! 

What I love most about my family and friends is that they read my blog and know how to take a hint. Which is why I was so excited when my friend bought me the La Maison de Senteurs Amber Mystere Scented Candle which I featured in my birthday wishlist. It smells so, so lovely, I will have to force myself to burn it! My rather lovely friend also bought me a One Direction t-shirt which made me very happy indeed. 

My work pals got me lots of little things which included a lot of Ciate products! I am so excited to try out the Ciate Velvet Manicure Kit and also the Ciate Feather Manicure Kit. If they work out well then I will obviously share my results with you all! I also received a beautiful Bath and Body Works Shimmer Mist which I am really looking forward to trying out.

Family wise I received MAC Eyeshadow in Knight Devine which looks incredible, as well as the Real Techniques Bold Metals Triangle Foundation Brush which looks far too pretty to use! Finally, my favourite gift of them all. I know they have become really popular just like Michael Kors watches but I am a sucker for Daniel Wellington. I love the simplicity and elegance of their watches. They are timeless and I don't think I would get sick of the sight of one like I would a Michael Kors watch. So imagine my utter delight when my family purchased the Daniel Wellington Classy Sheffield Watch for me. It is so, so beautiful. It has taken me a few days to pluck up the courage to wear it!

Expect to see a few blog posts on the above in the next few days!
