Yesterday was Erica’s birthday, so we went out with Momma and had some fun!! We walked the mall, stopped at all our favorite stores, went to see some friends act in High School Musical (one of our favorite movies), and then went out for ice cream afterwards. Sadly, Erica forgot to bring her camera, so we couldn’t get pictures of it all 😥 So instead we’re doing a birthday present haul post!!!
Erica’s gifts: I had such an amazing birthday! I got to spend the day with my best friend ever (aka Veronica) and my mom, which was so fun! We walked the mall, hung out, got to drool over all the adorable things we found, and it was awesome! Here is everything I got for my 17th:
I found an adorable ring set at H&M! They had silver, gold, and rose gold. At first I wanted the silver ones, but they all had peace signs instead of the infinity signs As soon as I saw the rose gold set, I had to have them; I love rose gold!!! They are so cute and I have each ring in two sizes: the first size fits my ring fingers, and the second size only fits my thumbs, but I love them anyways! They were $7 for the set. Momma bought them for me as a gift 😀
When we got to the phone case section in H&M, we couldn’t stop squealing! They had some really pretty ones, but our favorites were some that looked just like kitties!!! I ended up getting this one, which I cannot stop showing to everyone I see! All my friends who have seen it think its adorable too 😛 ❤ Its weird that its for the iPhone 5 yet it fits my iPod 6, but I’ll take whatever I can get!! Momma bought this for me also.
You may or may not know already, but I bought myself the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. I did a review on it last week here! I am so in love with this palette. I have used it every day that I’ve worn makeup since I bought it, and I cannot believe how amazing it is!
Next, I bought myself a 15 piece makeup brush set. I bought it online and it arrived the day of my birthday, so that made it extra special! Two of them are double sided and it mainly has lip and eye brushes. I have only tried out a few so far, but I’m loving the angled eyeliner brush and larger eyeshadow brush!
I got a Juicy Couture nail kit from my amazing sister Veronica. Its a day-to-night set, so you wear the nail polish during the day, and if you have a date/girls night, you jazz it up by adding a coat of glitter! Each color has its own matching glitter, but I’m excited to mix and match these! (See the nail stickers? Olivia thought they were actual nails! Ah, the thoughts of an 8-year-old 😀 )
She also got me lots of adorable matching stationary stuff and supplies for school! I got folders, note cards, clips, pens, a pencil sharpener and ruler, and a notepad that doubles as a mouse pad that all match!! I can’t wait to take this to school with me! It was so sweet of her ❤ ❤
Lastly, Eddie got me a $15 iTunes gift card (which I plan to use very soon!!) and a birthday card. I was so happy to see this card!!! Its a Hoops+Yoyo talking birthday card. When I was about 8, my dad got one from a coworker and I loved it! I’ve always loved Hoops and Yoyo since then, and it was so sweet of Ed to remember! In this one you open the card and they start going crazy jumping up and down singing about how they want cake! (To be specific, they go, “Were here for the cake, for the cake cake cake! Were here for the cake, for the cake cake cake! Were here for the cake, for the cake cake cake, for the caaaaaaaaake, for the cake cake cake!” and so on. Love it!)
Veronica’s gifts: I had a blast on my birthday! We went out to the mall with Erica, Nick, Olivia, and Momma and we had a great day. We went to all my favorite stores, had a ton of fun, and ate out at an amazing Cuban restaurant called Habana Rumba. See more about what we did here!
The first thing I got were my gifts from Momma! She got me embroidery floss, adorable stationary stickers, a paper quilling set, An embroidery hoop and needles, and little pins with chicks on the ends! It was so nice of her and I can’t wait to use it all!
Momma also got me a beautiful teacup from one of my favorite stores, Teavana. It’s long, has a small lid, and a strainer that’s perfect for letting fine tea steep. I cannot say enough how much I love this… Like, I really LOVE it! I only got it a week ago, and I have used it every day 😀
I bought this gorgeous fountain pen at Anthropology!!! Its made of white glass with golden trimming, and it is beyond pretty! It also came with an ink refill, which is so convenient! This pen originally was $20, but it was on sale and I got it for only $7! What a steal!!!
I also bought this thermos at Anthro. It is SO beautiful!!! Momma saw it a few weeks ago and was so tempted to buy it, but at $20 she decided to pass. A few weeks later, she found 2 on the discount shelf for $5; she snatched that thing up right away! We went back for Erica’s birthday, and I found yet another on the clearance shelf for only $3.50!!! Now Momma and I each have one, and we couldn’t be happier with them!
I got this face palette from Erica. I absolutely love it and it has everything I needed!!! It comes with 2 bronzers (which i probably won’t use for a while), a highlighter, blush, and setting powder. She also got me a Wet n Wild angled blush brush which is so soft!
Erica also got me the RealTechniques Mini Travel Brush set. I love these so much and they are so adorable!!! Erica and I love everything small, so these were the perfect gift for me. They fit in my sadly tiny makeup bag, I have the basic brushes that I need, and I just CAN’T get over the cuteness they possess!!!
So that is everything we got for our birthdays!!! We hope you enjoyed seeing everything we got as much as we enjoyed getting them! This year we had a great set of birthdays and we are so happy we got to celebrate them together.
