Birthday Gifts

Hello lovelies. Here is a post of what I received for my birthday as requested by a few readers:

From my husband:
This wasn't really a surprise. He took me to Sephora and told me to get whatever I wanted. lol.
LORAC | PRO Palette
I've heard great things about this palette!

LANCOME | Color Design Palette - Taupe Craze
I've been wanting a Lancome palette forever! I was deciding between this palette or the Bronze Amour palette, but opted for Taupe Craze since Bronze Amour seemed more appropriate for the summertime.

NARS | Foreplay Cheek Palette
As if I needed anymore blushes to add to my stash! I couldn't help it... It was too beautiful to pass up.

And a surprise:
I am absolutely in love with this diamond band! It's simple, sophisticated, and perfect! I'm not usually a fan of diamonds, but oh my goodness, I can't begin to describe to you guys what I was feeling when I opened the box. Perfect!

My mother-in-law got me a gift certificate (facial & manicure) to my favorite (and only) spa place!

One of my besties surprised me with the first four seasons of The Big Bang Theory. We generally like the same shows, so I can't wait to start watching this when I have time.

My other bestie surprised me with a bunch of goodies she got from four different countries. She's a flight attendant. =)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. This upcoming colorway of the Nike SB P-Rod 9 Elite could very well be the model’s boldest offering up to date. Dubbed the Nike Nike Air Presto SB P-Rod 9 Elite Flash, the model takes on a tonal approach in which the entire upper is done in a reflective Silver colorway. Today we take Nike Air Max 2016 a look at the shoes official images.Set to be a part of Nike’s Holiday 2016 collection, the shoe’s upper is done in the aforementioned reflective Silver upper Nike Factory Store combined with the 3M material placed all over the shoe’s piping. Branding on the tongue and panels come in the same fashion, while the hits of White Nike Juvenate noted on the laces, lining and midsole provide minimal contrast. Dropping on November 22nd for $140, are you down to wear these this holiday season?
    Looking for Nike Janoski a sneaker that keeps it low key but remains a classic? Check out this new colorway of the Nike SB Blazer GT. Done in a solid Ivory Nike Flyknit 4.0 colored upper sitting on top of a gum sole, this will easily be a part of your weekly rotation.The Nike SB Blazer GT is done in an Nike Store Ivory suede upper contrast but the hits of Black noted on the leather Nike Swoosh, top eyelet and additional branding on the heel and tongue. The White Nike Air Force 1
