Birthday Haul!

If you follow me on my social media, then you may have noticed that on Wednesday I celebrated my 19th birthday. I was very lucky and received some super lovely beauty and clothing items which I'll be sharing with you in today's post. If you would like to read my 18th birthday haul from last year, then you may do so by clicking here.




Beauty

Chanel Rouge Allure in '98 Coromandel'
Eeeek! It's my first ever Chanel purchase!! And of course I had to go with the classic red lipstick, although I was pretty tempted to by a nude shade. It was my mum that convinced me I would be far too tempted to use it too much and use it up far too quickly; she was probably right haha! But this is absolutely gorgeous and has a pretty shimmer through it which shall be perfect for Christmas day, I'm so excited to try this out!!

NARS blush in 'Orgasm'
For months and months I was torn about this product. I wanted to understand the hype but whenever I swatched this in store, the insane glittery pigment frightened the life out of me. As my birthday came around, I decided to take the plunge and add this beauty to my collection. I'll give you all and update when I get round to giving it a try!

MAC lipstick in 'Honeylove'
A haul of mine just wouldn't be complete with a nude mac lippie. This one has been on my wish list for a while and MAC matte finishes are one of my favourites, I'm sure this will be my current go to for the next 2 months haha!

NARS satin lip pencil in 'Rikugien'
I have wanted a NARS lip pencil for the longest time and Rikugien is such a unique and gorgeous colour that I just had to have it in my collection. I thought I would change up my nude shades for a deep, tinted rosy hue. I am so excited to use this!!

NARS stick concealer in 'Chantilly'
If you've been reading my blog for a while now, then you will probably already know that this beauty is my holy grail for concealing around my eyebrows. It lifts and defines them like you wouldn't even be able to believe. This is a repurchased product that I shall continue to always love and would definitely recommend this to anybody. Its flat edge makes this super easy to highlight around the brow, it's simply perfect. 






Clothes

Topshop premium checked Harrington jacket
I've wanted a Harrington bomber jacket for quite a while now and when I laid eyes on this one, I simply fell in love. I've never seen a Harrington jacket quite like this one. From its wool mix, to sandy hued checkered print it just oozes class yet is perfect for day to day wear. I love it.

Topshop drape neck blouse
I've actually needed a blouse for quite some time now, I always seem to borrow one of my mum's whenever I have an event so now I finally have one of my own. The drape neck style of this is super flattering and long necklaces look super pretty when worn down in between the gap. (I'm sorry I wasn't able to photograph this, I worn it on my birthday so it's currently in the wash! However, I have included links down below!!)

Topshop birthstone bracelet 'December'
You know me. I love minimalism and this piece was just far too pretty to refuse. I can't seem to find the bracelet online however, I've linked the necklace version below. 

Topshop blue pendant necklace
This paired beautifully with with the blouse and of course matched the birthstone bracelet too. Although there may have been a little bit of a blue theme in terms of my birthday jewellery, I certainly wasn't feeling blue with these gifts; don't worry!






Miscellaneous

Starbucks candy cane christmas mug
Of course the coffee lover inside me just needed this mug in her life, okay. How can you resist this candy cane handle?! It's too adorable and I'll probably drink out of this all year round. Super cute, super festive and I even managed to snag it with a 30% discount - yay!

One Direction 'Made in the AM' deluxe edition
I was 13 when One Direction were on the X Factor and so of course, I was their biggest fan and to this day still remain to love them all the same. I now have all five albums in the deluxe edition and yes.. Louis Tomlinson did sign my first album, muahahaha! 




And so that's everything I received for my 19th birthday. I am truly grateful and super lucky to have received such lovely things. I do still have some birthday money left over, I think I might treat myself to a new pair of Christmas pj's!! Have you tried any of the beauty products I received before? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! Until next time,



Have you celebrated your birthday recently?!
