What I got for my birthday 2013

I scheduled this post earlier in the week, because as this post goes live I will be visiting my wonderful hairdresser and getting my hair dyed! I have always wanted strawberry blonde hair, for as long as I can remember! I decided that now is as ideal as any other time to try it and see if it suits me, what's the worst that could happen?! If it doesn't suit me I can always dye it back after all! Wish me luck!

If you're a follower of Bee's Knees you'll know that last weekend featured my birthday! Although I've got piles of posts that are itching to go up on the blog, I thought it would be nice to share with you the wonderful presents I received from my nearest and dearest!

From my boyfriend's Mum (who happens to be an excellent present-buyer!):

Jumper from Primark.

Purse & umbrella from Matalan.

From my [insert endless list of lovely adjectives here] boyfriend:

Smashbox Photo Set Finishing Powder (SQUEEEEE!) and season 1 boxset New Girl

Real Techniques stippling brush

The world's most beautiful necklace (I have an inkling this is from Not On The High Street)

Models Own nail polishes in Indian Ocean and Aqua Violet

Models Own nail art set & Me to You cuddly dog

From my lovely Dad:

YES! That's right! I got a Clarisonic!!!! Eek! (& sensibly the extra 'delicate' brush)

From my amazing Mama:

No7 Accessories set

Marc Jacobs Dot fragrance set

From my marvelous sister and her girlfriend:

Miranda autobiography and two DVDs

Amazing stick-on-the-wall clock and Rimmel Precious Stones (!)

From my work-based bestie some fab nail wraps from Paperchase and a silver/pearl nail caviar set from Topshop

From my oldest, dearest friend:

Stay tuned for reviews of beauty products, and more importantly for a review and updates on the Clarisonic Mia!


  1. You lucky thing! And yes, go for it with the strawberry blonde hair...I think it'll look fab! x

  2. You certainly did well! I didn't even realise Miranda had a book out, I really need to read that! I'm hoping I can get it on Kindle and read it tonight :) xx

    1. I had no idea either! I'm about halfway through - it's really easy reading :)

  3. A great selection of birthday gifts. You have great family and friends, with excellent taste. :)
