2017 Birthday Haul

Good day lovies, as promised, today I’m going to share my birthday haul with you. Some things I’m still waiting for so I will mention those at the bottom. I think lady birthday luck was on my side this year as there were so many great sales & promotions going on. Also having your birthday in Woman’s month has its perks!


Thanks to Ilona from Ilonique, Simone from An Ordinary Gal and my hubby I managed to give my makeup collection a huge boost. Firstly I have a HUGE The Balm haul.

Next is something that was on my wishlist but in a different volume. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette. All I can say is all the shades are gorgeous. Excuse the already used palette in the pictures but I just couldn’t wait another day to use it. I also got spoiled with a gorgeous Urban Decay Palette. I instantly fell in love with the buttery shades of the Nocturnal Shadow Box



As I mentioned earlier, the odds were most definitely in my favour. Hubby spoiled me with some cash and I went on a little shopping spree at Donna Fashion. They had a flash sale and instead of leaving with 2 tops, I left with 7, a dress and a pair of shoes!


Part of my birthday spoils is a Boxycharm subscription. I can’t wait for my first box to get here. I think I will still have to wait a week or so. I’ve seen spoilers and the Rainforest of the Sea Volume II palette is in the box. I am now seriously itching for the third one to complete my collection. I’m also waiting for a delivery from Milani SA, so keep an eye out on my instagram account for that.

Last but not least, I got spoiled with a gelish mani at Sorbet. What more can a girl ask for?!

I am going to try and review as much as possible of the products I received, but let me know in the comments which ones you guys are really interested in.
