I know, it’s kinda late talking about my birthday presents when my bday was 12 days ago, but I guess because my motto is yolo, it’s okay. I’m already a 20 years old girl for almost 2 weeks! That’s shit definitely cray. Anyways, because I live by the word(s) ‘yolo’, I thought it wouldn’t matter that I’m going to show you my birthday gifts a bit later than usual. So here they are. I got some awesome items from my friens & family, so I can’t wait you to show you errthang. Oh and disclaimer (because literally every blogger says this, haha), I’m not bragging or something, I’m just really thankful for such sweet friends and family <3.


Let’s start of with all the beauty products that I got. I don’t know about you guys, but usually there’s always somebody (that I used to knoowww) that gives me perfume for my birthday. Not that I really mind, ’cause perfume is something that you can always use, but I don’t like getting it that much. I have a lot of fragrances and I don’t like having a big perfume stash, because I’m more of a one signature scent girl. But yeah, I got this Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet perfume. It’s smells very sweet, but not too sweet. I don’t really like sweet fragrances (I’m more a citrus kind of fragrance bitch), but this one has just the right combinaton of sweetness and freshness. It’s not my fave, but I definitely like it and will use it! And the packaging is just gorggggg.


Next up is something that I’m fucking excited about. I’ve been seeing these Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nailpolishes everywhere, but I didn’t want to buy them. I mean, what if they were fucking amazing and I had to ‘replace’ all my regular nail polish for Sally Hansen gel polishes? But yeah, I got these 3 really pretty colours (110 Birthday Suit, 440 Dig Fig & 240 B Girl) + a topcoat from my friends. I will be doing a review about these babies soon, but so far so good! And I think I want to buy a white, black and red one as well ;).


This is probably one of the favourite items that I got for my bday. Okay, I didn’t actually ‘get’ it from somebody, but hey, buying bday gifts for your own birthday is totally normal right? Anyways, it’s this beauuuutiful scarf from Monki. I’ve been eyeing this baby for months now and I’m so happy that I’ve bitten the bullet and got it. It goes amazingly well with my beige trenchcoat from Forever 21 and I’ve been wearing that combination everyday since I got it!


From my grandmother and my uncle I got this beautiful, dainty rose gold bracelet. Everything rose gold is right there up my alley, so they definitely did a great job. It looks really good with my Michael Kors rose gold watch. Спасибо бабушка и дядя <3.


Okay, I bought even more ‘personal birthday gifts’, haha. I saw this amazing co-ord or two piece from Monki on Kenza and I knew I wanted to get it. Of course, it looks waaaaay better on her than on me, but she’s like the prettiest person in the world, so what did you expect. I still thinks it looks really good tho, it’s the perfect fall/winter two piece if you ask me!


I’ve been on the lookout for a more fitting, cropped sweater for a while now, so when I saw this fluffy, cream sweater hanging around at H&M, I knew I needed it in my life, especially for my birthday. So yeah, I also got this sweater for myself, haha. It looks amazing with my leather skater skirt and some chunky boots.


On my birthday, I went to one of my favourite hiphop groups called Atmosphere. Of course I had to get some merch, so I bought this cool shirt and their newest album called Southsiders. It’s really good, you definitely need to give them a go if you’re into great, underground hiphop!


The main thing my mom gave to for my birthday was a freaking iPhone 6. It feels even a bit unreal typing this haha. I already did a whole blogpost about it, that you can check out here, but I have to say, it’s pretty awesome!


I saved the best for last. One of the most exciting things that I got for my birthday is this amazing, vintage polaroid camera from the OG Polaroid firm. It’s in such a good condition and I love that it comes with the original bag (which is also really stylish and I will be using it as a regular bag as well, for sure). I think this is one of the best gifts I’ve ever had, so thank you so much Anouar <3. I haven’t tried it yet, because I still need to order some film, but when I do, I’ll definitely show you the results :).


Those were all of my birthday gifts. I had a fucking awesome birthday and I’m really glad that I got to spend it with all my loved ones, who gave me super cool presents. So thanks again my bitches! So that’s it for today. I hope I’ll see ya guys tomorrow with a new blogpost, but I can’t promise you that, because I still have a shitload of stuff to do. I need to finish cleaning my room (studying in a clean room is sooo much better) and study like 13493843 million pages before the 29th, so blogging is not my number 1 concern. But don’t worry, after the 4th of November I’m all yours again ;).
