Birthday Haul 2015 + An upcoming giveaway!

Hello lovely!

Before I start with the post, I just wanted to let you know that I have been wanting to give back to you guys for reading my blog and constantly encouraging me to continue doing what I do. I would love if you suggested things that you wanted in a giveaway no matter how big, small, whatever it is and I will have it up as soon as I can, so do leave a comment down below!

If you didn't know, I turned 20 a few days ago and along with that comes a birthday haul! I did get money more than I did presents so I've already been out shopping with some of the money but I also got a few things that I thought I could show you! I love and appreciate everything I got and I'm very thankful. I'm not trying to brag in any way, I just thought it would be a fun post since I always love seeing what people get!

Enough with the long intro, let's get started!

To start off, I got two beautiful bouquets from my Aunt and Grandma which I decided to put together into a flower arrangement just so it could last longer and be displayed in my bedroom! I'm actually loving the colour it adds to my room and it's making me want to have fresh flowers all the time. Uh oh!

Next up, I got this card from my sister which I thought was so cute and I absolutely love it! My friends and family don't really give each other cards at all, so this was a nice change!

With some of the money I got, I headed to INGLOT to initially just pick up a white nail polish which turned into a 'I can't decide which one I like best, so I'm going to pick up a handful' but to be fair, I never actually purchase nail polish and my collection literally consisted of 3 so I thought I'd just pick up a few since I probably won't be shopping for them for ages. I will have their names as well as swatches in an upcoming post so wait for that if you're interested!

Again with the money I got, I decided to purchase a couple pairs of shoes because like nail polish, I rarely ever shop for shoes just because I do take good care of my shoes and they seem to last long as well as go with all of my outfits, but since I got my birthday money and was in need of new shoes, I thought why not! 

I've actually been eyeing the first pair for a while now but they didn't have them in my size (I'm a size 36) so I kept brushing it off until I tried it on in a size 37 and it wasn't too bad so I happened to grab it. I usually don't like the style of these shoes but for some reason, I really loved these ones!

As for the second pair, well, they're absolutely gorgeous, easy to slip on and look effortlessly feminine and cute! Both are from Dune London :)

 Last but not least, a friend bought me these pretty earrings which I adore. I don't really know where they're from but they're cute nonetheless!

And that is all! Like I said, I love everything I got and I'm very thankful.

Don't forget to leave a comment down below with something you'd like in the giveaway! :)

Lots of love,
Teen Diary (even though I'm no longer a teen)



  1. happy birthday!! How about a package of nail polish, chocolate (maybe Justins), a small gift card (like $10) and fashion jewelry. Or I would just do one of those things. :)

    1. I'm sorry, I just saw you live in Britain. Justins is an American company. :)

    2. Thank you love! I'll be sure to put in those things and maybe some good gourmet chocolate from over here! Do you have any shops in mind for the gift card? :)

    3. I think etsy would be lovely, or amazon. it's up to you, but everyone can enter if it's those stores!

  2. Gorgeous photos - you got some lovely gifts! That camera is so cute!
