What I got for my 22nd birthday

Another year has passed and I’m just that little bit further into adulthood, fml. I don’t like it, someone reverse time please.
However, as always I’m bringing y’all a post about what I got, because I know you’re all nosy! Usual disclaimer – I’m not bragging etc. Without further ado, read on to see what I got for my 22nd birthday!

Mermaid Makeup Brushes | The Colour Chronicles

This year, Mumma Smith graced me with these beautiful mermaid makeup brushes which blend like a dream, and a gift card for MAC. I haven’t decided what I’m going to spend it on yet as I really can’t justify more lipsticks, so I think I might treat myself to a foundation. Recommendations welcome!

22nd Birthday Presents | The Colour Chronicles

My best friend Gemma decided to stick to a cat and glitter theme which is pretty spot on! She gave me this cute little coin purse, a set of cat stickers and a glittery keyring because you can never have too much glitter in your life.
