Birthday Presents!

Hey there! So it's been super long since I've updated this thing. I've missed it so much! I was drowning in work and have finally (almost) climbed my way out of it! I really should be doing some right now in fact... Oh well! I'll get to it soon. My birthday was just about a week ago, and I got a a few very nice things from my boyfriend and my mum. My mum sent a little package from back home as she isn't here in England with me! Here's what my mum got me:

She sent me a few other bits and bobs like 2 tops, a few more rings and a pack of chips (I LOVE these 'chili chips' and can't get them here in England, how sweet of her haha). 

And this is what my boyfriend got me:

GHD Midnight Deluxe Collection

If you read the very first wish list I blogged about, you'd know how much I wanted a GHD! But this, is beautiful beyond words. The case, the little mirror, even the hair clips! There are very few hair straighteners that give that shine to your hair after straightening, and actually make your hair look healthy rather than limp and lifeless. I really love this thing! I really can't thank my man enough. He was also sweet enough to get me the cutest, not to mention the perfect cake for me!: 

Nom nom nom - Shoe cake!

All in all it was one of the best birthday's ever. I celebrated it 5 different times with 5 different groups of people I love the most! I didn't get to celebrate with my lovely family back home (they did celebrate my birthday without me. Weird family, I know.) I am so grateful for everything and I really couldn't ask for more. 

I also wanted to show you guys a pair of shoes that my aunt got for me before I came back to England for my second year. I accidentally left them at home and only realized on the plane on my way back to England. Silly me, eh? My mum did send them with a friend who went home for Christmas holidays, and I finally got my hands on them after a few months of missing them terribly. Here they are:

She got them at H&M in Hong Kong last summer, so I doubt they are still available. I'm sure you can find a dupe, it's quite a common design. They are so comfortable to walk in and look so great with leggings! 

So on a completely different note, did you guys manage to catch a glimpse of the 'Super Moon'? I could see it so clearly right from my window!

Super Moon
It was so beautiful! Nature at its best? It wasn't as big as I thought it would be, but still, what a sight. If you're interested, here is a link to some mind blowing shots that people around the world managed to take! 

This post is turning out to be much longer than I thought. Oops.

If you're on Twitter, you know that #100factsaboutme is trending. It's so much fun to read about other people! If you're tweeting on this trend, let me know what your user name is, because I'd love to read! I also follow QueenOfBlending on Twitter, and she did this gorgeous green look that I would love to try:

Here is her tutorial on it! 

I think greens are perfect for Spring. I'm really loving everything coral too. What is your favorite Spring trend? Let me know! 

So this is it from me. Hope you're all having a great week.

Thanks for visiting!
