20th birthday presents / gifts 2015 - urban decay naked smoky palette, kenneth cole reaction make-up bag, lacoste touch of pink perfume set

Phew, this has been a busy week! Now some of you may know, it was my birthday last week (8th September) and before I could do a post on what I got for my birthday, I jetted off to Paris for a few days. I will soon be writing a blog post dedicated to my travels of the beautiful city but until then, I wanted to share with you what I got for my 20th birthday because I personally love reading these types of posts. Now usually I never ask for presents as I just don't want anything too badly, but as you probably saw from my Birthday Wishlist, I managed to compile quite a hefty list! I didn't really expect to get anything from my list, but I got more than I could have expected and more. I can't explain how grateful I am to my friends and family for making my birthday a lovely one. I didn't really do much apart from going on a nice shopping trip with my mum and then finishing off with  family dinner to Pizza Hut but I thoroughly enjoyed it all. I can still feel the excitement even now!

As you probably saw earlier on my wishlist, I had down a scrapbook, a yankee candle and best of all, the Naked Smoky palette. You can't even imagine my delight when I got gifted all of these! I didn't realise I had gone on about them all so much but apparently I did, as both my friends and family did well in buying me them. I can't wait to start using my scrapbook to stick in all my photos and tickets from the Paris holiday, whilst burning the Cinnamon scented Yankee Candle which is a perfect winter smell. The Naked Smoky palette is just as beautiful as I imagined. I didn't realise how much I love a smoky eye until I used this palette, and the formulation is by far the best I have ever tried. I will definitley be writing a more detailed review soon so watch out for that. 

While out shopping with my mum, she gave me the opportunity to buy my own birthday present that could be anything I wanted. To some people this would be a dream, but for me it was just to difficult to find something I really really liked for my mum to buy me. After trawling the entire town centre, we popped into TK Maxx and I laid my eyes on this beautiful rose gold jewellary box. I love it so much and is perfect to put all my little trinkets inside. Then I came home to find that my dad also bought me a make-up bag which is brilliant to store my ever-growing collection of beauty items. This one is great as it has see-through compartments to keep everything all organised (not like its going to stay that way!). 

Lastly, my friend decided to buy me a beautiful black hat for me to take to Paris and I love it. It really is Parisian chic and is perfect for both summer and autumn wear. I also got this Lacoste Touch Of Pink gift set which is a lovely fresh scent that I love and reminds me of my school days when everybody used to wear it!

Thats all for now, but I just want to say that I am just so grateful for everything I got! I am not trying to show off in any way but just want to share my appreciation of both my friends and my family whom I love to bits! Plus, we all got to eat this delicious cake, what was not to love?
