26th Birthday || Pressies!!

Well, I turned 26 on Tuesday.  I'm rather depressed at this as it now means I'm on the road to 30.  NOOOOOOOOOO.  All down hill from here?

Anyway, don't wanna dwell to much on my age as I just wanted to share with you some of my wonderful gifts.. :)  Some of them were on my August Wishlist post which is an absolute brucey bonus!!

Some of them look as though it's a 12 year old's birthday! haha.  I have to keep young somehow don't I :)______________________________________________
Bare Minerals 9-piece Get Started Kit in Medium
I asked for this kit off my Mam, as I'd been dying to try the brand out!! I will be doing a review soon!


MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush

OMG! I've wanted this for sooo long!!  I can't wait to try it out and review the life out of it! ha!  Hubby bought me this - however he really couldn't undstand how a makeup brush could cost £27. LOL

The Body Shop Treats!
I've really been going The Body Shop crazy lately, after never really thinking of going there in the past! I always forget about it as my local Body Shop is away from all the other good shops in my town centre!  I'm constantly on their website now though.  I asked for all of these from my hubby!

Vitamin E Eye Cream - just because I wanna really start looking after my delicate eye area.

Tea Tree Face Mask - I've read lots of good reviews on this so fancied a dabble.

Strawberry Beautifying Oil - This was all over the july/august magazines as a MUST HAVE product - so I thought I needed one of them in my life.  Apparently they are fab multi-taskers so can't wait to give this a good go!  I now really wanna smell all of the other scents!

Nutriganics Smoothing Day Cream - I haven't ever tried anything from the Nutriganics range so thought I'd give it a go, although I asked him for the small version just incase it doesn't agree with my pesky skin!

That's another thing I love about The Body Shop - they do a lot of things in sample sizes so you can try them out before making a major splurge!


The Secret of Moonacre/The Little Princess/The Secret Garden on DVD
The Twilight Saga Complete Collection on Bluray
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on Bluray & DVD combi pack
YESSS!! Got all of the films that were on my august wishlist.  So chuffed.  Love them all!  Yes I really am a child at heart!


Real Techniques Core Collection
I'm soo chuffed I finally got hold of this collection from my wonderful brother and sister in law!  Blogging world has gone absolutely crazy for this collection simply for the Buffing Brush, nevermind the 3 other great brushes it includes.  I tried the buffing brush this morning for my liquid foundation and it is absolutely brilliant.  I will do a full review once I've had a good practice.

So that's my pick of my favourite gifts this year.  Hubby also got me an ironing board as a "JOKE" - I bet you can all guess how that one went down!

Do you have any of these items on your wishlist?
Whats on your August / September wishlist?
