Birthday Haul

It was my birthday last week and I thought I would share with you all the lovely presents my family and friends got for me... they all know me very well!

Ralph by Ralph Lauren
Sweet Delicious by DKNY
(2 of my favourite perfumes!)
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
Flying Fox Shower Gel from Lush
Urban Decay Nail Varnish in Carnival (NOTD here)
17 Nail Varnish in Parma Violet - one of my favourite nail varnishes you can see an earlier post where I have used this colour - here.
17 Nail Varnish in Forever
Benefit Sugar Bomb Lip Gloss
Elaine 'Carrie'style necklace (lovelovelove)
Accessorize Necklace
3 month subscription to She Said Beauty (Yay) - My friends obviously were listening to my ramblings about Glossybox! haha!

My mam and sisters were asking me for ages what I wanted for my birthday and the only thing I could think of was a bag for when I go to Paris in a couple of weeks (yay), and it was the typical thing of when you go shopping for something specific you can never find it so they gave me some money towards a bag when I find one.

So I went shopping a couple of days ago and found this gorgeous bag from Zara for £29.99, perfect for nights out in Paris!
Sorry for the stock photo - my camera broke when I was trying to take pictures of this bag!
I'm not sure if you can tell in the pictures above but the bag consists of two pockets on either side of the bag, so the bag itself is quite a bit smaller inside than it looks, but I don't mind it will just encourage me to stop carrying around as much stuff!
I really love the metal stud detailing that goes around the middle of the bag, and the cute small box shape of the bag. 

With the rest of my birthday money I got this cute bag from Primark for only £4 and got a new contract iPhone 4!!!! I love my new iPhone, I have been dying to get one for ages and I haven't put it down since I got it! 

Rachel also got my this 'hilarious' extra present! I guess I go on about my annoyingly large pores a bit too much! haha!

Watch out for a new series of posts on my hunt for a new foundation with a medium coverage that really compliments my skin but can handle how oily it can become. 
I finally built up the courage to ask the shop assistants for samples of foundations instead of buying straight away (although how nice the assistants have been has varied!!) and I am really pleased that I did or I would have wasted a LOT of money by now! 

Are there any foundations you can recommend?
