Hey guys! So my birthday was almost a month ago, but I haven't posted a What I got for my birthday post, because I had a lot of other content ready to go up. This year everyone's been super generous and I couldn't be happier, because I got the "awesomest" gifts of which some are quite hard to get here in Slovenia. Some of these I bought as a little gift to myself, others were presents or bought with the birthday money I received.
My mom lives in Germany, so she asked me if I wished for anything that isn't easily available in Slovenia. I had my eyes on the Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay cologne and the Tom Ford lip color matte lipstick in First time. I chose the cologne, but she kindly surprised me and got me both, which I was very grateful for. My makeup collection isn't the biggest one because I'd rather get a few special pieces and form a beautiful collection, than have a million random makeup products that wouldn't mean much. Plus I really don't need an enormous amount of makeup just because my blog also includes beauty. So these two have a very special place in my collection.
I really wanted a nice simple and classic watch that would go with everything in my wardrobe, so I was browsing the Marc Jacobs collection and a few Kate Spade watches. Both have the loveliest designs and I truly enjoy their eye catching minimalism. In the end I decided to treat myself with the classic Marc by Marc Jacobs gold and black 36mm baker strap watch, that looks absolutely divine. Maybe someday I'll also get one from Kate Spade.
I'm currently trying to collect some good makeup brushes, because they really do make a difference in the way your makeup ends up looking. I'm dying to get my hands on one of the beautiful Zoeva brush sets that has a nice mix of face and eye brushes, but I spotted something different at the Bobbi Brown counter. This Bobbi Brown full coverage face brush is very well known in the beauty world, and I was itching to try it because it felt super soft and just the right density. I love it so far and will keep you posted about it in the future. So on the other side of the BB makeup, is also their skin care counter. I waited a loong time for these face masks to come out in Slovenia, and they finally did, so I bought the Radiance Boosting mask with walnut particles and orange. There will be a post up soon, that includes this gem.
Last but definitely not least, in fact it's my favourite gift of all. I wished for a 50mm lens ever since I bought my DSLR camera, so I actually intended to buy it with the birthday money I ended up spending on the watch. But my boyfriend was kind enough and offered to buy the lens for me, because he was a bit clueless as to what he would otherwise get me. I was ecstatic! It came in the post, so when the postman rang the doorbell, I nearly broke the stairs because I stormed down like an elephant to open the door. After that I was jumping up and down laughing with joy and a very weird kind of laughter that you really don't want to hear...
So if you noticed the extra blur in my photos lately, it's because I'm already using the lens and I'm in looove. So, so thankful this year. I feel very special and lucky! I hope you like these as well and you're ready for some future posts about these in the near future. Stay tuned <3.
