Recent Purchases & Birthday Goodies

This weekend I had my birthday dinner at Viva Italian Restaurant. The service what not so impressive but the food was delicious! I had the Chicken Pollo with Fettuccine. The meals were really generous for the price! I got spoilt rotten by my beautiful friends, and had such a good night catching up with everyone & sharing some laughs!

On Saturday I did a bit of shopping with my brother. After reading the latest Shop Til You Drop magazine I was lusting after some lip products. I couldn't resist these 3 - Revlon Matte lipstick in Pink Pout (this is gorgeous), Revlon Super Lustrous gloss in Nude Lustre & Loreal Color Riche Shine Gelee in Pretty Peach (this has tiny little gold glitter flecks in it.)

The swatch doesn't do the items justice! Left to right - Nude Lustre, Pretty Peach, Pink Pout.

My brother got me this gorgeous Prada-esque bag in Bali. I've used it every day since he gave it to me. Unfortunately it is starting to fall apart in a few places, so I might take it to a shoe repair man to see if he can work some magic on it. He also got me Ralph by Ralph Lauren perfume.

A beautiful box full of goodies from a dear friend. There were also chocolates in here which I ate as soon as I got home from dinner. The lip balm is so smooth & shiney.

My bestie Nique got me this Twilight figurine (I am a little bit obsessed!) =)

She also got me these pearl studs (I've been needing a pair for ages.)

& this DKNY Be Delicious apple soap which smells heavenly!

My other bestie Erryn got me these stunning crystal earrings!

I got these bird studs from my friend Ellie. I love earrings!

I needed some black heels for work so picked these patent ones up from Spendless for $50. One foot is a little loose so I need to find a way to stop my foot from slipping.

I got this pretty little dress & slip from Dotti, the colours are very pretty.

Also from Dotti I loved this batwing top.

This is one of the blue tunic/dresses I got from my parents for my birthday...

& this is the other one. Both are from Target and were less than $45.

I've also finally figured out how to make my photos open full size when you click on them (Thanks for the help Nikki!)

I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

    if the shoe is a little loose, why don't you try cutting up an inner sole and put it in the shoe that's a little big.

    hope you had a wonderful day!
