So I was extremely lucky on my birthday on Wednesday, (as I am every year), and I thought I'd show you a few of the beauty and bath bits I bagged this year, courtesy of my friends, family and myself!

So as you can see I was overcome with satsuma-scented products. I received this huge body wash and body butter set, along with the gorgeously smelling hand cream to match, all from The Body Shop. Even though I haven't used them yet, I've used the satsuma shower gel before, and I definitely knew it would smell good (I'm one of those annoying people who has to smell literally every product in this store) so I was extremely happy - citrus fragrances are my absolute go-to when it comes to body products.

My sister got me the Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in Riviera. I was speechless - it's one of those products you keep your eye on and you know that you have to purchase it because of it's absolute pure beauty, but that price tag just doesn't do it for you. I wore this on my birthday and I was continuously complimented about my highlight all day, it literally made my cheekbones pop. Now I've tried it I definitely think it's worth the price tag.

This bad boy was a purchase I made when I collected some birthday money together (no, my grandad isn't quite cool enough to know to buy me this). The one and only, Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani Blush Palette. Oh my god. The colours are absolutely gorgeous, there are three shimmery colours (Easy, Angel and Hush), and three slightly more matte colours (Cherry, Lo-fi, OC). You can literally create any makeup look with this palette, and I'll be doing a separate post on it soon.

To Maia, From Maia. This is a MAC satin lipstick, in Fleshpot. It kinda takes me back to my concealer lips days, but less Dream Matte Mousse-esque. But, I'll admit, at the same time I kinda love that. The darker the lipstick, the less it suits me (pale girl probz), so I went for one of the most nude lipsticks that was available in store. I should just point out that it really doesn't agree with my chapped lips at the moment, ugh.

Any recommendations? I have a little more birthday money and need some ideas.
