As you might know, I turned 22 last thursday – thank you for all of your greetings on the day! That just made it even more special!
I got a bunch of lovely presents and I thought I’d share them with you.
I got a new rain coat because the other one was totally worn out. I also got The Sims 4, which is downloading as I am writing this.
I got a Kähler vase called ‘lovesong’ which has the lyrics to The Beatles’ ‘All You Need Is Love’ printed on it – of course I had to have that!
In the book department I got two – The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes and The Illustrated Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in the Danish edition – it is SO beautiful!
In the make-up department I got the L’Oréal Nutri Gold Extraordinary Oil Day Creme and the Rimmel London Wonderfull Wake Me up mascara in extra-black. I also got some nail polish, but I’m going to throw that in with my post tommorow, which will be about my nail polish finds of November.
It’s my birthday today!
As Taylor Swift says it, “I’m feeling 22” 😉
We don’t have any lessons today, so that leaves plenty of time for “hygge” (having a nice time).
Jonas made me breakfast and I just took a brownie cake out of the oven so it’s ready for dessert served with ice cream. My parents are coming over for dinner. I might do a “what I got for my birthday”-update later this week.
I also had time to apply nail polish because it wouldn’t be my birthday without a fresh coat of nail polish. My birthday mani this year is not very birthday-ish, but very season appropriate. I was inspired by this mani.
- Maybelline – Winter Baby
- Maybelline – Light it up
- Maybelline – Nearly Black
- White and black acrylic paint
Have a nice day!
I just wanted to share my birthday presents with you guys!
My boyfriend got me a book that I had forgotten I wanted, a sign that say “Love you to the moon and back” – it’s kinda an inside-thing, but there is a story to it, he’s not just being cheesy 😉 He also gave me two nail polishes, a white and a purple glitter, but I didn’t like the purple so much because it had a clear base so I exchanged that for two other colours, a blue/green glitter on a blue base and also to a purple grape colour.
Last saturday when I had my friends over they got me 4 shower gels from Body Shop that I haven’t got a picture of because I started using it already and took it out of the box. They also got me the Harry Potter box on DVD. Since I already have the DVDs I was going to exchange them for the Blu-ray box, but then when I got there I all of a sudden wanted something else instead. I bought three DVDs instead.
My mother-in-law, her boyfriend and my brother-in-law gave me a necklace in the shape of a fly. Very pretty, I’ve been wearing it since I got it.
My dad gave me money because he found it easier – and then I can spend the money on something later on when I find something I desperately need but doesn’t have money for.
My mother gave me all sorts of things. She bought me a board game called Sequence and some clothes for fitness. The pants are SOOO comfortable and I’ve been wearing them ever since. I’m gonna have to put another pair on my wish list so I have a pair for everyday-wear and a pair for fitness. She got me a black cardigan which was very pretty, but itchy unfortunately, so I exchanged it for a very comfy, blue cardigan with white stars and three nail polishes. Lastly, she gave me a crackle-polish, but I’m not a big fan of the concept so I exchanged it for a nail strengthening polish.
Yes, I’ve been very busy exchanging it all already 😉
Presents from my mom – a board game, fitness clothes and a sweater

Today is my birthday! I turn 21!
This morning my boyfriend made me breakfast.
Later today I have a lecture from 16-18 and then my parents are taking me out to dinner.
Have a nice day!
