So I turned 24 last week! My birthday was lovely. I took the day off work then had a great meal at The Marc here in Edmonton with a few friends. If you live in Edmonton I definitely recommend checking out this restaurant – so delicious! On top of a lovely day I was definitely spoiled by my friends and family, so I thought I would share some of the lovely things they got me.
I had been wanting new gym shoes for a while now but I couldn’t justify buying myself a new pair when the ones I had were still in perfectly good shape, so I asked for some new ones for my birthday. My parents were lovely enough to get me the mint and neon yellow/green ones which I absolutely adore. They’re super lightweight and comfortable to wear, also give my feet great support. What more could I ask for in a gym shoe? I have always loved Nike sneakers, I wan them all!
My mom purchased this palette for herself a few weeks ago and I fell in love. I used it for this look here and I just had to have this for myself! I put on my wish list for later but then my little brother surprised me and bought me it for my birthday. This palette is so gorgeous! The pink tones are so nice with my brown eyes (also my mother’s blue eyes!) and we all know how great the UD eyeshadows are. Now the struggle is to not use this palette every day!
I had been saying that I wanted a new palette that had some more vibrant and fun colours in it because right now my palettes are a sea of neutrals. I received this lovely palette from my aunt, and its a step in a more colourful direction! The palette has 9 shades – a mix of some neutrals and fun colours – and they are beautiful! I haven’t got a chance to play with this palette yet, but keep an eye out for some fun looks to come!
Shelby got me these gorgeous lashes (in addition to the amazing pamper day she provided me with last Saturday) with some other little goodies. We had seen one of our favourite humans Katy (aka Lusterlux) rave about these lashes on Snapchat and they look just as beautiful in person. I saw that Shelby had got some for herself but the sneaky girl bought me a couple pairs too. I am so excited to try these out!
Hope you enjoyed my little haul. I know I love to be a little nosy and see these kinds of posts!
