Well today is my birthday! I just turned 25! I know I’m not very old, but I feel like I just turned 18. I remember as a kid I was so excited for a birthday and then when it turned into the next day I was like aah another 364 days before another one. When I was a young girl my aunt would always make these amazing character cakes and I loved that! Now that I am 25 birthdays aren’t as exciting. Other then my car insurance going down in price (now that I am 25) I’m like meh. But then again I am so happy to be alive and be able to celebrate my birthday year to year because as I get older and the more I work in the hospital I realize how precious and fragile life can be. It can be taken from a person within seconds. So I am glad to be turning 25 and I am excited for the future.
Two weekends ago my family got together to celebrate December birthdays. My birthday is exactly a week before my boyfriends. Christmas time gets busy so since my niece was having a dance recital we decided to go out to eat afterwards at Olive Garden and celebrate December birthdays! But here is the sad part, my boyfriend’s work made him work on Sunday last minute so he wasn’t able to come. 😦
Well Olive Garden is one of my favorite restaurants and a funny thing is the last time I was there was when I brought my boyfriend to meet my family. Well that was October of 2012. That’s what happens when the nearest Olive Garden is an hour away. It is a treat! I love my Italian food and I ended up getting Chicken Alfredo which is a favorite of mine.
So onto what I got…I am also very thankful to my family for the wonderful gifts!
I also got some gift cards but I haven’t spent them yet.
So Sephora sent out a 20 dollar gift card to VIP members of their points system. I of course had to use it because it was like throwing away 20 dollars. So this is what I got…
Urban Decay’s Naked Palette
Tarte Picture Perfect Eye Lash Curler
Then my free Sephora birthday gift.
Sephora gives their members birthday gifts on their month of their birthday. I got 2 sample sizes from the brand Benefit. I am excited to try these products. It included a mascara , “They’re Real” sample and a highlighter, “Watt’s Up.” I think the highlighter’s packaging is adorable with the light bulbs. Comment down below if you agree.
Well I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you have any of the products above. Tonight I plan on going to get a manicure with my mom and then later I am going out to eat with some of my family.
