What I Got For My Birthday

What I Got For My Birthday & Outfit | Katie Kirk Loves

It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and I was a very lucky girl getting spoilt by my lovely family & friends. There were a couple of birthday celebration meals out with my friends as well as a trip to my favourite ice cream parlour in Arundel where I tackled their famous Mega Cone like a hero and made it onto their Instagram Wall of Fame! It's a giant come with four scoops of ice cream, cream, sauce (which is what's in the little syringe), flake, wafer and a cherry on top - easy!

Onto the presents. Most of the presents from my family are things I chose myself which I like as it means I receive things I've been wanting for ages!

I was really excited to get one of these Personalised Light Boxes. Although I had been secretly eyeing one up for ages this was actually a surprise present from my friend, so I think she must be psychic. You get plenty of letters to create your own words/phrases so this is going to be perfect for my blog photography.

I got this lovely Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Shadow Palette by Too Faced which not only smells like chocolate and contains some really pretty colours. The adorable porcelain unicorn necklace is from And Mary online. I absolutely love their beautiful porcelain animal necklaces so I'm delighted to add this to my small collection!

I am very excited to try my first ever Diptyque Candle! I got the fragrance Baies in the mini size which smells like roses and blackcurrant leaves, I love it!

This Cult Beauty Box is absolutely amazing! It contains 3 skincare products: Emma Hardle Amazing Face Cleansing Balm & Cloth, Pixi Glow Tonic and Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser. These are the same in every box but you can customise the other 3 items to the shade/type that you would like: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick (I chose the shade Patina), Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (I chose the iconic shade of Opal) and lastly Ouai Shampoo (I chose the volume option). All of the products in this beauty box are iconic and top reviewed so I'm really excited to give them all a try and plan to post a review on the blog once I have!

My sister made me this adorable cushion with a picture of our beloved 18 year old cat Mandy on (she helped choose which picture was used of course!), I love it, it's too cute. She also made me a phone case with her face on as well!
