Birthday Night Out and Present Haul

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! I meant to do this post on Sunday but, I'm going to be honest here, I spent most of yesterday watching Disney films and feeling slightly worse for wear! And then I meant to do it last night, but I completely forgot that I've signed up for a photoshop course! (The less said about this the better, it was ridiculous. And I have three weeks to go. Three! Here's hoping it picks up!)

I went out on Saturday night for my birthday and I had an amazing time! We had a few drinks at our house and played 80s Singstar and Beer Pong before heading to a club for an ill advised evening of dancing and Jaeger bombs.

This was my hair and make up look for the night :

The make up I used :

Foundation: A mixture of Maybelline Fit Me and Loreal True Match
Blusher : Estee Lauder Nude Rose (sadly it looks like they don't sell this anymore!)
Lipstick : Max Factor Colour Elixer Pink Brandy
Eyeshadow : Urban Decay Naked palette
Eyeliner : Collection Fast Stroke Eye Liner and for my waterline Maybelline Master Kajal Liner
Eyebrows :  Model Co More Brows
False Lashes : Eylure Volume 107
Mascara : L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Excess Black Mascara
Highlighter : Kryolan for Glossybox Highlighter in Cashmere
Bronzer : Make Up Revolution Blush, Bronze & Brighten

I actually only got one full length photo of my dress, I kept thinking I'd get one later and then completely forgot (Idiot!)
No idea what my boyfriend's doing in this photo!
My lovely shoes aren't in the photo, but I wrote about them in this post here.

I also had my nails painted to match my dress :

I thought I'd show everyone some of the stuff I got for my birthday, I really hope this doesn't come across as bragging, but a few people said they'd like to see a haul and I thought it'd be fun! Some of these items were on my wishlist and some were complete surprises!

Like I mentioned in my wishlist post, I ordered these beauties to wear on my birthday night out. (And then didn't end up wearing them because they didn't go with the dress I bought - they'll have their time though!)

I got the original Naked pallette and it was love at first brush. It came in a set with the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. I have a big mascara review post coming up, so I'll let you all know my thoughts on it there! I also got the Flower By Kenzo perfume, it's got a nice scent but to be honest it's not really to my personal taste!

You know you live in the UK when you can legitimately get an umbrella for your birthday in June and instantly get use out of it! I've needed a brolly for a while, so I was delighted to get this!

I've got a little bit into gardening recently! By this I mean I planted a few sunflowers in some pots and water them about every three days when I remember! They need to be replanted outside now, so these were a pretty thoughtful gift!

I got this adorable beaded watch. I mentioned these watches in a post a while back, so my boyfriend must have been scouring my blog to get ideas - Awwwww!

I also got some candles and a cute holder for them. Love me some candles! The Vanilla Cupcake is my favourite!

My sister got me this shorts and top combo - she did well, this looks exactly like something I would wear! She got them both from Next, in case anyone fancies buying them too.

And - I've saved my favourite present for last...Dun Dun DuuUUUUuuuN!

My boyfriend made me a jewellery holder! Out of an old tree branch! How he even did this I don't know, but I LOVE it! This photo doesn't even do it justice, the thing is a work of art! (And now the bar has been set ridiculously high for his birthday in a few months, Ack!)

My owl earrings love it too!

So that's some of the things I got, hope this was interesting! Let me know if you get anything exciting recently in the comments (it doesn't have to be birthday related!)
