My Birthday, Sweet Blog Award & Mac to the beach highlighter

It was my birthday a few days ago. We went to celebrate in a nice Malaysian restaurant, and I had a great time. My sweet husband baked me a birthday cake:

I was very lucky to receive much love this year. Lots of sweet texts and lovely facebook messages. Nice presents too! Here are a few of my birthday gifts:

From my husband, an amazing Balenciaga bag and Marc Jacobs sunglasses. He really spoils me, I don't deserve such lavish gifts.

From my sis in law, a case full of Lancome goodies!

I also received lots a Selfridges gift card and lots of Harvey Nichols vouchers!

Onto my award, thank you to Winniewingyi for this sweet blog award! It's very cute, and came as a nice birthday surpirse!

The rules of this award are to:

-give this award to 10 sweet and friendly bloggers
-let them know they've been nominated

The lovely 10 blogs I've nominated are:
Mademoiselle loves BEAUTY
I finally managed to get my hands on Mac To The Beach Marine Life highlighting powder. It sold out completely online, and in one Mac store in Manchester. But luckily managed to get two (one for me, and one for my sis in law) in town.

It looks beautiful! And the colour is a fresh peachy pink.

  6. I hope you had a great birthday!! You and my brother share the same day :D haha

    What beautiful gifts you received! I'm sure you deserved each and every one of them :D

  7. Thanks for all the sweet birthday wishes! I'll do a swatch of marine life very soon. Sheila, no I've not been told that I look like Evonne Hsu, but thanks for the compliment!

  8. Happy Be-lated b-day, glad you had a wonderful time with you husband and family. I can't wait to try the Summer MAC line, it looks awesome in the photos.

  9. that balenciaga bag is fake... i can tell because i own a few. i hope your hubby didn't get ripped off

  10. Hi annonymous, thanks for the tip. He got it from Harvey Nichols, and has the receipt so I doubt it is fake. Maybe you haven't seen it before as it's from their new line with rose gold buttons, and I've seen them in Harvey Nichols and Selfridges in black, light green and blue.

  11. Happy belated birthday! You can tell your hubby that my birthday is coming up soon too & if he's feeling generous he can go ahead & send me the same things! haha!!

    I really am loving that purse & sunglasses! PERFECT!!!

  12. Happy belated Birthday, Penelope! The purse and sunglasses are chic, especially the sunglasses! Your sister's gift is too awesome, and although I have never heard of the two gift-card companies, I am sure they are fantastic! The seahorse blush is also so cute, where do you find all of these cute blushes at? Haha~
