What I Got For My Birthday


Last Wednesday (September 27th) was my birthday, I turned 20! Time really flies by. Where I work they give the day off when it's our birthday so I stayed at home and slept until 12pm (I love sleeping!), and then I got dressed, did my makeup and went for a walk with my boyfriend and at night I went dinner at a nice restaurant with my parents and my boyfriend. It was a nice day! I got awesome gifts that I'm so grateful for and I really want to share them with you - please don't think I'm trying to brag about what I received because I'm not, I just love to see other bloggers doing this kinds of posts and I wanted to do one too. So if you want to see what I got for my birthday keep reading!

Na passada quarta-feira (27 de setembro) foi o meu aniversário, fiz 20 anos! O tempo realmente passa depressa. Onde eu trabalho a minha chefe dá o dia para ficarmos em casa quando é o nosso aniversário, por isso fiquei em casa e dormi até ao meio dia (adoro dormir!), depois vesti-me, maquilhei-me, fui dar um passeio com o meu namorado e à noite fui jantar a um bom restaurante com os meus pais e com o meu namorado. Foi um bom dia! Recebi presentes espetaculares (estou muito grata por os ter recebido) e quero mesmo mostrar-te todos eles - por favor não penses que estou a tentar gabar-me pelos presentes que recebi porque não estou, apenas adoro ver outras bloggers a fazerem este tipo de publicações e eu queria fazer uma também. Por isso se queres ver o que eu recebi pelo meu aniversário continua a ler!


My in laws went on vacation to Canada and has they were getting back to Portugal two days before my birthday my boyfriend decided that his gift for me would be some makeup products - he told me to choose the ones I wanted the most and that's what I did. I decided to choose only products that I can't buy anywhere and some others that I really wanted. Unfortunately the majority of the products that I wanted were out of stock, but I still got some amazing ones - let me tell you what I got! Since I started seeing YouTube videos that everyone raved about the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, so I had to get that but in a mini version to see if I like it. As I'm a sucker for sets, I had to choose some of them - one face set and two lip sets. The face set that I chose was the Kat Von D Lock-It Baking Set that comes with a mini concealer and a mini loose powder. The two lip sets were the Bite Beauty The Perfect Pair Amuse Bouche Lipstick And Lip Pencil in Pepper - I was so curious to try Bite lip products so I had to have this (actually this one my sister and brother in law decided that it would be their gift for me) and the NARS Mini Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Duo in Damned/Walkyrie, I freakin love the colors that are in here and I wanted to try some different lip products. The Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer was a product that I heard a lot too when I first started watching YouTube videos, everyone used to say that this was great for oily skin - music for my ears! Hope this is good. And last but not least I REALLY HAD to choose the Tarte Blush Bazaar Amazonian Clay Blush Palette! I thought that this was exclusive to Sephora (it's available on Tarte's website too) so I asked for this palette. It's stunning! I'm in love with it hope it's as good as the Big Blush Book 3!

Os meus sogros foram de férias para o Canadá e como eles regressavam a Portugal dois dias antes do meu aniversário o meu namorado decidiu que o presente dele para mim iria ser uns produtinhos de maquilhagem - ele disse-me para escolher os que eu queria mais e foi isso que fiz. Decidi escolher apenas produtos que não fossem fáceis de encontrar e outros que eu queria muito. Infelizmente a maioria dos que eu queria estavam fora de stock mas mesmo assim escolhi uns muito bons - deixa-me mostrar-te o que recebi! Desde que comecei a ver vídeos no YouTube que vejo toda a gente a falar muito bem do Translucent Loose Setting Powder da Laura Mercier, por isso obviamente tinha que o ter mas numa versão pequena para ver se gosto. Como eu adoro kits, tinha que escolher alguns, claro - um kit de rosto e dois de lábios. O kit de rosto que eu escolhi foi o Lock-It Baking Set da Kat Von D que vem com um mini corretor e um mini pó solto. Os dois kits de lábios foram o The Perfect Pair Amuse Bouche Lipstick And Lip Pencil na cor Pepper da Bite Beauty - estava tão curiosa para experimentar os produtos da Bite e não me podia escapar pelo menos uma coisinha da marca (na verdade este kit os meus cunhados é que me ofereceram) e o Mini Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Duo na cor Damned/Walkyrie da NARS, após ver muitas bloggers a falarem destes batons fiquei curiosa para experimentá-los e nada melhor que um kit. O Photo Finish Foundation Primer da Smashbox já estava na minha wishlist há anos - desde a altura que comecei a ver vídeos de maquilhagem em que todas as meninas adoravam este primer, espero que eu o adore também! E por fim mas não menos importante eu TINHA MESMO QUE TER a Blush Bazaar Amazonian Clay Blush Palette da Tarte! Eu pensei que esta paleta era exclusiva à Sephora (não sabia que a Tarte ia ter no site deles também) por isso pedi. É lindíssima! Adoro-a, espero que seja tão boa como o Big Blush Book 3!


Now let's show you what my mom and dad gave me. The coral and white fabric that you are seeing in the right corner of the photo is a robe. I was in need for a new robe and I was super excited when I saw it! I love robes! They also gave me some goodies from Parfois, one of my favorite stores. Two beautiful bracelets, one pair of pearl earrings that I've been wanting for a while and this really pretty makeup bag! The makeup bag is already in my everyday bag because I love it so much.

Agora vou mostrar-te o que os meus pais me deram. O tecido coral e branco que estás a ver no canto direito da foto é um robe. Eu estava mesmo a precisar de um novo e fiquei muito entusiasmada quando o vi! Adoro robes! Eles também me ofereceram algumas coisinhas da Parfois, uma das minhas lojas favoritas. Duas pulseiras lindas, um par de brincos de pérola que eu já estava a querer há algum tempo e esta linda mala de maquilhagem! A mala de maquilhagem já está na mala que uso todos os dias porque gostei muito dela!


Here is a close up of the bracelets and earrings.

Aqui está uma foto aproximada das pulseiras e dos brincos.


Now my in laws gifts! They gave me a beautiful pajama that is white, black and pink but I forgot to include it in the picture. My mother in law knows how much I like perfumes so she gave me this Bath & Body Works Brown Sugar & Fig Fine Fragrance Mist that smells so freakin good and it's already my everyday fragrance! I need to find a way to order more three bottles of this, I love it.

Agora os presentes dos meus sogros! Eles deram-me uns pijamas lindos que são brancos, pretos e rosa mas eu esqueci-me de incluí-los na fotografia. A minha sogra sabe o quanto eu gosto de perfume por isso ofereceu-me um Fine Fragrance Mist da Bath & Body Works com o cheiro Brown Sugar & Fig. Isto cheira tão bem! Já é a minha fragrância diária! Tenho de arranjar uma maneira de encomendar mais três frascos deste perfume, adoro-o.


They also gave me this Sleeve from Bath & Body Works to put the perfume inside. It's so cool! I've never seen something like this, I really like it!

Eles também me ofereceram esta Sleeve da Bath & Body Works para pôr o perfume dentro. É tão fixe! Nunca tinha visto nada disto, gosto bastante!


Last but certainly not least they got me this acrylic makeup holder! Omg I was speechless when I saw it. I don't know how they knew that I needed another organizer but it was so kind of them! It's already on my vanity holding my foundations, highlighters and my Sephora Cream Lip Stains. And this one is very different from the others that I have, the acrylic is much stronger - I love it!

Por fim mas com certeza não menos importante eles ofereceram-me este organizador de maquilhagem em acrílico! Meu deus eu fiquei sem palavras quando o vi. Não sei como é que eles sabiam que eu precisava de um organizador novo mas foi muito simpático da parte deles! Já está na minha mesa de maquilhagem e dentro estão as minhas bases, iluminadores e os meus Cream Lip Stains da Sephora. E este é bem diferente dos outros que eu tenho, o acrílico é muito mais forte - adoro-o!

And these were my gifts! Have you tried any of these products?

E estes foram os meus presentes! Já experimentas-te algum destes produtos?

    1. Are you talking about the acrylic organizer? The top comes off as well as the drawers, is that "metallic" thing that supports everything, I hope I'm saying this correctly!
