Remember my birthday wishlist? I almost got everything I asked for and some things I didn't.
My lovely husband got me Burberry perfume (I love it!), Benefit's Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Skinny Jeans (my favorite shade right now) and a handbag (it didn't photograph well, so it's not included in the photo, but I carry it with me every day). The perfume is perfect; sweet but not overbearingly, with an undertone of a more heavy scent, and I really like the design of the bottle, it looks so pretty on my desk... As for the eyeshadow, thanks to it I get complimented on my make-up really often lately, even from my mum, which really says something about how pretty and shimmery it shows up on the eyelids.
In the photo you can also see the most beautiful letter knife I've ever seen in my life which a good friend bought for me on her trip to China, as well as two make-up brushes from my mother-in-law. She said she didn't know what the fan brush was for, but she thought it'd look pretty in my brush cup... She also gave me a jar full of milk and honey scented bath salt (yum!), Mateusz's sisters got me a yellow toy monster to cuddle, and his grandma... a pair of black thongs. Interesting, huh?
My mum gave me those earrings which I adore and was really upset when I nearly lost them on a beach in Cyprus. Luckily, I found the missing earring among my shoe laces.
As you can see here, I'm really tanned right now (as for my standards) and also I'm very much into berry shades lately. But that's a subject for a separate post, I think...
What's your favorite shade for the autumn? xxx
