My 22nd Birthday!

my-22nd-birthday

Hello everyone! As some of you might know it was my 22nd birthday this week (Tuesday to be exact) and I wanted to share my makeup menu, and give you a little run down of what I got up to on the day.

This year I was torn between having a lunch/dinner and inviting people along or just having a chilled, relaxing day. I opted for the latter and I did really enjoy the day. As a present from my mum I had a massage. I’d never had one before but the massage therapist was lovely and I felt so relaxed afterwards. I then came home and had lunch before my boyfriend picked me up and we went on a short walk. Later that night we ate pizza down by the lake and he took me on a drive.

Presents:

  • MAC Matte Royal lipstick (brother) – I asked my brother to buy this for me. I have been curious to try a dark blue/navy lipstick for a while.
  • Massage (Mum) – I had never had a massage prior to this but it felt very relaxing and I’d love to go back again.
  • Skechers for work (mum) – For the majority of the time I’m at work I’m on my feet so comfortable shoes are a must. I got a pair of ‘Stellar’ Skechers which are black/grey as well as being lightweight and super comfy.
  • Gift card (boyfriend).
  • Atomiser with Juicy Couture perfume (boyfriend’s parents).

    A chilled relaxing sounds perfect! And a massage is such a great thing – I’m glad you felt relaxed afterward!
    I still can’t believe you got a BLUE lipstick! 😮 Your makeup look on your birthday looks great – the red lipstick suits you to a tee.
    And I really like the photo with all the balloons – it’s been ages since I had balloons!

      I’m glad I didn’t go all out on the day and feel burnt out. I’m a little weary to wear the blue lipstick in public, don’t get me wrong I like it but am I that daring? I really like this makeup look too, it’s a firm favourite and pretty easy to achieve 🙂
      The balloons are awesome but such a pain to tie up after they’ve been blown up, sore fingers lol
