Birthday Lunch + Birthday Pressies!

Birthday Pressies

It was my Birthday 3 weeks ago, and I am now officially 24! Thank you so much for all of your lovely birthday greetings on Facebook, you guys truly are all babes 🙂 From what I have learnt so far in my 3 weeks of being 24 is that it is a strange old age, I guess I now am officially classed as an ‘adult’ (shudders) 😉 To celebrate the day itself I trundled into town with the best friend for some lunch fun (yes you read that right, lunch is fun!) and birthday monies spending.

Instead of forking out for some posh lunch in some overpriced hotel, we decided to plump for something a little more bohemian and ended up in a Punjabi-style Restaurant in the heart of Dadar’s cosmopolitan Shivaji Park area, called Masalazone. We both ordered Basil Garlic Paneer Tikka (YUM)! Overjoyed wasn’t the word 😉 However not being a garlic lover, I went for a Karara Palak Chaat which was actually quite tasty. The decor was extremely unique 🙂

Right, enough about lunch – I know what you guys want to see – THE MAKEUP! Well, I’m sorry to disappoint, but this birthday was quite sparse on the makeup front compared to previous years. I got a few bits for my bedroom, essentials that I needed, but I have cobbled together a few of my fave pressies to show you, and as you will see there is one makeup splurge.

Yes, yes, that is a MAC Pro Longwear Eye Liner you see! After all the hyping I have seen on blogs I caved and purchased the shade Black Ice with a gift card that my amazing brother got me (clever brother). It’s the most gorgeous jet black shade. I wore this for the first time today and it’s love – I can actually see this overtaking Avon 2-in-1 Kajal & Smudger as my most worn everyday eye liner. I will pop up a post on it soon. 🙂 I’m sure you have spotted it already, but I got myself another bottle of my all time favourite shower gel which I have recently ran out of – Fiama di Wills’ Blackcurrant & Bearberry, have I mentioned it to you before? 😉

So there you have the beauty birthday present round-up, and tomorrow I’m going to show you what fashion-y bits I brought with my birthday monies! I’m sooooo excited to show you them 🙂 Has anybody else got that Friday feeling?
