every gift from a friend is a wish for your happiness.

It has been a while. Though my birthday was a few weeks ago, things are only now starting to calm down. Finally life is starting to return to normal. Honestly? It actually feels good to get back into a regular routine. With so much going on recently....I am just now starting to go through (and put away!) all of the wonderful birthday gifts I was given. There were DVDs, accessories, makeup, books, and more. I was definitely spoiled this year. So, it only made sense to share some of those things on my blog. Without further ado, here it is. These are a few of the birthday gifts I received this year.....

Some gorgeous accessories from Ardene's (headbands, earrings, necklaces, and more), noise makers, an iTunes gift card, MAC Trolls powder, and an Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palette. 

An assortment of books, DVDs, and movies (the new Amy Schumer book, Anne of Green Gables collection, Snow and Snow 2, iZombie season one and two, Little House on the Prairie season seven and eight, and a gorgeous Audrey Hepburn book). 

Lots of amazing new makeup, including a bunch of nail polish colours, a Rimmel mascara, some eyeliner pens, CoverGirl lippies, and a NYX butter gloss. 

A Harry Potter shirt, card, gift card, USB stick, and telephone booth tin.

A stunning pair of diamond earrings from my mom. I love them because they're beautiful...but they are special because they actually belonged to my mom! She wanted me to have something from her jewellery collection because it was my 30th. 

Some Olaf goodies, cute cards, a birthstone bracelet, a Harry Potter Pop! figure, and a gingerbread scented candle. 

The Too Faced Christmas in New York makeup scent (OMG! Gingerbread scented makeup!), a Kate Spade wallet, and the Too Faced Mascara Melt Off.

Some new clothes! Two pairs of pants and two super cute tops. (I love the cat one!)

Yes, this birthday was definitely one to remember. There were tons of activities, get togethers, and gifts. It was a fun (but super busy) experience. Now that everything is over, it will be nice to catch up on life and settle back into routine.

Have you been given any gifts lately?
