Birthdays, Cupcakes and Lush


This post has been a long time coming, almost 4 weeks to be precise... Oops! Most of you are probably aware that I turned 21 at the end of May and as it was quite a significant birthday (I still don't understand why people make a big deal of 21 in the UK but hey-ho), I thought it'd be fun to show you what I got.

I'm extremely grateful for every present I received of course, and I am in no way boasting and all that disclaimer babble that everyone has to write otherwise people get judgey y'know. 


Let's start with the items I treated myself to in the weeks running up to my birthday, because if you can't treat yourself then - When the heck can you? I'd had my eye on the Zoeva palettes for quite some time, and by some time... I mean literally months. I went ahead and bought the Rose Golden palette because you know me, I'm a sucker for shimmery eyeshadows and obviously rose gold. I've created some beaaaaut looks with this palette, if I do say so myself, so there will definitely be a review coming soon. 

I originally wanted to purchase the Zoeva Rose Golden blush palette but Beauty Bay took their sweet ass time restocking it, so I went ahead and purchased a Gerard Cosmetics liquid lipstick instead. Evidently I have no control over my money and couldn't save it like a normal person, I had to make up for the item I couldn't get.




I also bought myself the Skinnydip X Zara Martin Rose Gold Kitty headphones because they're adorable, duh. Everyone's gonna be eyeing up my headphones by the pool whilst I'm looking cute AF.

Off my momma, I received lots of lovely bits and bobs including my holy grail mascara, Benefit's Rollerlash, and of course, a huge plushie of Flash from Zootopia. Gal gotta have her sloth fix. I was also very kindly given lots of Lush goodies, I don't think that really needs explaining. I love Lush.


I received lovely prezzies off my besties as always which I can't wait to use, and they will make fabulous blog props which is always a double bonus!



I've been interested in trying a couple of H&M's facemasks ever since they relaunched their beauty range, so I'm suuuper happy I now have the chance to thanks to Gem Gem. As well as having a couple of funky new wash bags to take away with me, meaning I can take all the make up. 



I know you shouldn't have favourite presents, but I'm a bad person and I do ok - Don't judge me. I had my eye on this extremely adorable jewellery dish for quite a while and I just knew that I had to have it. My best gal Gemma was an absolute bae and bought it for me, making me the happiest person ever. Paired with my gorgeous Pandora bracelet received from my mum as a belated main present, they make the perfect duo.


Last but not least, it isn't a birthday without cake, or in my case, cupcakes! I took this photo from Instagram so apologies for the low quality but I had to give them a mention as they were so darn cute. And delicious. Very delicious. 

I hope you all liked having a little sneak peek into my 21st birthday, despite it being quite a slow and chilled day, I had a wonderful time overall full of pizza and lots of cake! This now means I'm 22 next year, I'm slightly terrified. Help.

  14. I don't remember if I wished you a happy birthday (4 weeks ago may as well be 4 years ago with my terrible memory) but happy belated birthday just in case!! I think 21 is meant to mean you're now a proper grown up - good luck with that. I've still not mastered it. You're also supposed to get a key. Anyway, loved peeking at your birthday pressies. Those headphones are fabulous and you can never go wrong with LUSH goodies. Also, drooled slightly at those cupcakes. (By slightly I mean a lot) Great post Kat and don't forget, it's all downhill from here! Haha xxx
