I’ve been such an incredibly lucky girl over the past few days. The bank holiday weekend saw my 21st birthday pass, and I had an amazing weekend with my nearest and dearest in the sunshine. On my actual birthday (Tuesday the 31st May), my Dad and my boyfriend Chris set me loose in Exeter and I shopped until I dropped. I’m so so so lucky and so grateful for all the amazing gifts I received and all the stuff I was able to buy with my birthday money, so I thought I’d share them with you!

From Topshop I knew I needed some new jeans, and I’d had my eye on a MOTO black denim jacket. I’m also completely obsessed with crop tops, so it’d be a crime not to stop by the jersey crops and grab a new couple. After a little bit of pondering, I settled on…

MOTO Oversized Denim Jacket | £45.00
Super comfy, will go with most outfits and looks slouchy and grungey. This jacket has been on my wishlist for ages, and I’ve needed a black denim jacket for a long long time. Box ticked!

MOTO Washed Black Joni Jeans | £36.00
It’s always time for a new pair of jeans! I decided not to get ripped knee ones as I already have a pair, and I’ll be starting my new job soon and will need some smart-ish black jeans.

'90s Racer Vest Black| £6.00
‘90s Racer Vest White | £6.00

These are surprisingly flattering on me. Sometimes high neck crops can look a bit strange, but these look awesome. And obviously, when you find a style that suits you, you need it in every colour!

I was lucky enough to receive a MAC gift card for my 21st from my step-grandma. I originally thought I’d use it for a new face powder, but then I fell in love with a new matte lipstick instead.

MAC Lipstick in Taupe | £15.50
So I’m a die-hard 90’s lipstick fan, and I always gravitate towards matte shades. I’ve got a nice little collection going at the moment, but Taupe was the missing link, and now I’ve got the best 90’s lipstick collection evaaaaaa!

MAC Lip Pencil in Whirl | £12.50

I’m a proud owner of the Whirl lipstick, but I felt like I should complete the little kit with the matching lip pencil. It’s perfectly matte, and will help me apply the lipstick a little less haphazardly.

theBalm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette | £29.99

I’ve always eyed up theBalm’s products and lusted after them. I didn’t even realise they were stocked in Superdrug until recently! This palette is everything I usually go for, but hey ho. It’s full of beautiful cocoa-ey bronzes and neutrals. 100% my thing and something I’m so excited to try!

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser | £15.50
In the name of all that is holy, I have been craving this face wash for the longest time! I’ve been in love with the pastel packaging and the beautiful, delicate creaminess of the wash for about 6 months. I’ve already had one cheeky use of it, and it is delicate and fresh and the muslin cloths are super duper beautiful. Full review to come very soon!

Benefit Cosmetics Rollerlash Mascara | £19.50
I love Benefit, and I’ve tried They’re Real in the past, but Rollerlash seemed like the next logical move on my Benefit journey. I don’t actually know too much about it, but the packaging really had me sold. It’s so pretty, and apparently it’s a really popular product!

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Eyebrow Gel | £18.50
This is a repurchase for me. It’s the only product I ever use to do my eyebrows. I’m quite lucky in the eyebrow department, really, as they’re thick and bushy. I don’t ever pluck them, and I’ve got no idea about ‘brow game’. The Gimme Brow is my trusty tool to get them looking even and tamed, though. It’s my number one!

Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Powder | £12.00
I am almost bombarded with Soap & Glory, and I adore everything about the brand. Their product names are hilarious, their bath and body products are luxurious and their makeup is effective. I decided to try this powder to help mattify my makeup, and as a more affordable alternative to MAC’s Studio Fix Powder.

Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Carbon Black Extreme| £6.00

Again, another repurchase! I adore Supercat. It’s my ultimate favourite liquid eyeliner pen. It’s super pigmented and the tip is flexible enough to create sharp flicks. It’s the best eyeliner ever, and so easy to pick up on the high street.

Urban Outfitters
 Calvin Klien Underwear Set | £50

This one doesn’t even need explaining, I’m sure. These stunning sets have been popping up all over Pinterest, Instagram and Tumblr, and they’ve become almost too much to resist. I had a lounge about in mine last night while I edited my birthday VLOG, and I can’t even tell you how comfy and sexy they are. 10/10 Calvin!

New Look
 White Ribbed Stripe Crop Top | £6.99
This is something that caught my eye a few weeks back, but I wasn’t 100% sure. When I saw it shopping yesterday, I thought it looked lovely and very stereotypical blogger and youtuber! I think it’s pretty and girly, and will be easy to dress up or down. I’m planning a LookBook video soon, and this will definitely feature in it.



  1. Happy belated birthday! Looks like you picked up some great bits!
