Birthday haul

It was my birthday last week, so I thought I'd take some pictures of my presents.  I was very lucky and got lots of lovely stuff from all my friends and family =)

I got some gorgeous jelly pong pong make-up which is so pretty I'll be loathed to take it out of the box and use it!  This pic also shows my lush orange dreamsicle yankee candle jar - it smells so good!  I'm not really mentioning the handbag you can see at the back as it's not real, but it looks good and I love it =)

I only have a normal little camera, so it struggles photographing things like jewellery, but I managed to get quite a good close up of my new favourite ring.  I don't really own any gold, but as I wear my gold coloured watch on my left wrist I wanted a gold ring for those days when I don't feel like clashing

Loads of Lush, a standard birthday requirement!  I picked the pretty pink trinket box from paperchase to keep small things tidy on my dressing table.  The teapot thing is a set of little tupperware boxes from paperchase.  I have four sets of these now, it's becoming a little addiction

How cute is that owl cookie jar?  I got another yummy yankee and some more of the paperchase tupperwares.  Here you can also see Breaking Dawn - I couldn't wait to get this after finishing Eclipse the week before - I'm currently half way through and don't want to get to the end!  I also got one of the WHSmith drawer boxes which I'm going to use to organize all my nail varnishes.

You can't quite see properly in the photo but in the middle there is a pair of socks which say I love Primark which I got from the bestie.  It's true, we do love Pri!  The little dinosaur at the top can be heated up in the microwave to keep you warm.  I hate being cold so I've already used this a lot.

A little close-up of the bling from that photo as it's so pretty.  The necklace is from Accessorize and it's just the kind of thing I would have picked for myself, love it

My first China Glaze polishes, and they're crackles!  I'll be experimenting with these and will do a post on the results.  So much better than the boring black crackle!

 The bf took me to Lakeside to choose some presents and one of the things I picked was this top from River Island.  I have lots of dresses but hardly any tops I like, so I've been on the look out for more.  I loved it so much I also bought the mink coloured one myself

I got so many compliments when I wore these to work.  It also comes in black, but I didn't get that one.

Dress from DP in the sale - no sleeves but I'll wear it with something underneath or with a jacket or cardigan

And finally I was given some pretty home stuff - Lovely butterfly Martini glasses 

Gorgeous tea light holder - I'd never seen this in Next before but I really like it

Another glam tea light holder and a pretty photo frame  

And another lovely photo frame from Next

Wow it looks like a lot all set out like that!  I've got so many new things to try out and blog about =)
