I am so blessed to have made some wonderful and amazing friends from all over the world. We set up a birthday club which means each month we send a gift to the value of $25 (but no one ever sticks to this amount! haha) to the person who has a birthday in that month. My birthday was in August and I have received some amazing parcels of goodies which I thought I would share...

Above is from my beautiful and classy friend Joy in Canada. I was so excited when I saw the Cake lipgloss (if I am honest, I didn't even know Cake did lipgloss!!). For those in the UK who may not have come across Cake before, it is an amazingly scented, very good quality skincare brand over in Canada. Joy also sent me a set of three hand-creams contained in an evening bag which I absolutely love. I really wish I could do a scratch and sniff on the screen so you could smell how yummy they are! Joy is a child of the 80's like me and included a little card with a Popple on. I loved my Popple so much as a child but my hamster Rodney managed to eat it and her little tail with a rattle inside came off :(
My beautiful blonde Swedish friend, Katz send me Urban Decay's Naked 3 eyeshadow. Going to let out another little scream now....aaaaaghhhhhhhh.....I have wanted this palette for ages and ages!!!! I don't know why I never treated myself to it but I just never did.
I have wanted to try the Urban Decay Illuminating Beauty Balm for sooooo long that I am so pleased to receive it from Juanita, my gorgeous Brazilian in Japan. I will review this on the blog soon because I have wanted it for so long I refuse to make this one wait it's turn in the usage line! Juanita also sent me the most beautiful Nubar polish in Cotton Candy Crush which I am going to try over a few different colours to see which looks best. I will share those pics too!
Above is from Hollie in Canada. She is a very dear friend and we have swapped on many occasions over the last few years! She sends me lots of Bath & Body Works items which I absolutely love because we can't get them easily over in the UK. The Delectable gift sets are from Cake Beauty who sell the most amazingly good fragranced skincare products. I have tried quite a bit from the range but never their body sprays so I am really looking forward to opening this! Marcelle is a very good skincare brand over in Canada although I don't believe we can get it here in the UK so I am always pleased to get anything by them.
Above is from Lien who is also based in Canada. I had written a list of items that I would like to try and included Victoria's Secrets Body Sprays. Lien has sent me Hello Darling which is her favourite and it smells absolutely gorgeous! See all the Bath and Body Works? Well now you don't because I have had to hide them away from my daughters hehehe! I am so excited to have some pocketbacs as I had run out of summery scented ones and the Sweet Shop collection smell so good. Lien also sent me a gorgeous Be Enchanted shimmer mist which smells amazing and looks beautiful and sparkly on the skin.
The gorgeous collection above was from my good friend Carine from Monaco. There is so much here I don't even know where to begin! The bath salts by La Societe Parisienne de Savons smell absolutely gorgeous and the glass jar looks so pretty and vintage in my bathroom. The BeYu holographic polish is gorgeous. I would probably not have picked this colour myself but it's actually my favourite now! The L'Occitane goodies are amazing, especially the spray which I have actually used before and love because it makes my skin feel really soft and smooth. I love Carine's humour too, the mirror 'be yourself everyone else is already taken' is a perfect extra!
