The birthday haul: gifts!

For the first time in three whole years, I spent my birthday at my parents house and that meant a lot of unexpected gifts and pampering!

I already told you guys in my last post that my parents got me a cake and treated me to dinner for my birthday. And as if that wasn’t enough, they bought me a lovely necklace and earrings from the mall! My grandmother also gave me jewellery – adorable star shaped earrings with red stones. This is one of my favourite presents because I had a pair like this when I was a little girl and lost one. This time around, I’m really going to cherish them!


My aunt gave me another amazing gift – Hydraluron!!! This moisturising serum/treatment has been on my wishlist forever but it is only available in the UK and I still can’t believe she actually made someone buy it and bring it just for me!


My husband sent me the one book I’ve been wanting to read ever since it came out – the new Percy Jackson novel. I know 24 seems a tad old to be reading this series, but I really love it and I’m so excited to start reading this book!


I got all this (along with some chocolates I may or may not have eaten already) on my actual birthday. But the next day, my friends came over bearing more gifts! I got a beautiful wallet and the Body Shop Moringa body spray, not to mention the lovely gift of getting to spend time with two old friends after years!


And that’s it – all the presents I received for my 24th birthday! I’m so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing friends and family!

If you aren’t sick of my birthday already, watch out for my next post that will feature all the shopping I did for myself. 😀
