What I Got for My Birthday 2016

This is very long overdue, but here is my birthday haul.

Yes, I said my birthday haul and yes, my birthday was three months ago, but it’s better late than never.

The first gift I got was this Benefit “They’re Real” mascara from my friend Penelope. Since my birthday was April 2nd, it fell during Easter break and she wasn’t sure if she was going to see me, so she gave me my gift ahead of time.

I already owned the travel size version of this mascara and I really love it, so I was estatic to own the full size.

My grandma bought me this Christian Siriano backpack from Payless. I know that most people don’t think of Payless as a place to buy good quality shoes, let alone bags/purses, but I saw this bag in there one day and I knew I had to have it. I’m planning on making this my summer bag and taking it wih me on whatever “adventures” I go on.

My best friend Catherine also got me something from Christian Siriano’s collection at Payless. It’s this Bethanne Satchel in a light blue color. It’s one of my go to summer purses because of how cute and bright it is!

 Continuing the purse trend, my godmother sent me a $50 Visa gift card and I used it to order a purse, a matching makeup bag, and two belts from H&M.

The purse and makeup bag are no longer available on the website, but they might still be sold in stores.

(Side note: Comment if you want to see a ‘What’s in My Bag’ post because I was thinking about doing one!)

She also gave me a $25 iTunes card I’ve yet to spend, but I will once I fgure out what albums I want to buy.

My friend Yvonne bought me this cute makeup bag from Sephora because I needed a new travel bag.

Then my uncle Craig gave me $40, so I used it to order myself a new wallet and mascara from Macy’s. I needed a bigger wallet so I thought this Anne Klein one was perfect and always wanted to try the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, so I decided to get a travel size to test it out.

If you guys remember from my What I Got for Christmas post, my godmother got me a $25 Sephora gift card and I finally got around to spending it when I went to get my birthday reward from Sephora. I actually used the gift card to buy my friend Sam a late birthday present, but I used what was left to buy a new lip product. It’s the Sephora Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color in “Fig.”

The last present I recieved was from Sam, who also gave me my gift late just like I gave her hers. She bought me this cute set from Smashbox, this really yummy smelling candle, and some gummy worms.

 That’s all I got for my birthday and I’m very grateful to have people in my life who take the time out of their day to do nice things like buy me presents and give me birthday cards (I’m obsessed with cards)! I promise to do this post again next year (hopefully on time). More posts are coming your way and I hope you all have a great day!
