Cween Turns 24 | Birthday Haul

Happy Birthday to me! I turned 24 on the 13th of September, and got some great presents I'd like to share. I like to spoil myself so most of these gifts, I gave to myself. The others, I'm lucky enough to have great friends and family who took extra time and money to get me something.

Since my birthday was on a Sunday, I took the opportunity to celebrate Saturday night as well. I purchased, as gifts to myself, an outfit to go clubbing to ring in my birthday. 

This jersey tank dress and shoes were purchased at, and the button was purchased from Icing by Claire's.

The next day was Football Sunday! So of course I had to pick up some gear to represent my favorite team. GO PACK GO!

I purchased the Eddie Lacy jersey from, and the cheesehead crown was purchased from 

Next, I was given some cash to pick up some gifts from Sephora. I ended up taking two trips because the sales associates convinced me in to coming back for round 2. 

I picked up the free birthday gift that Sephora offers to all club members - this year it's NARS lippie samples, a Beauty Blender Pro, and Boscia Green Tea Blotting Papers on my first trip. 

I ended up going back the next day and picked up more gifts for myself. This time I raided the clearance and "impulse buy" racks.

I picked up Formula X's White Party nail set (one of the 4 shades is not pictured), Nails Inc. Kensington Caviar Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat, Benefit They're Real PushUp Liner, NARS lip gloss in Orgasm, and was given NARS eye primer as an event bonus. They offered to do your makeup, and with a $20 purchase of NARS products they gave you the primer for free. I got my makeup done Saturday afternoon, and lasted through my night of clubbing. 

Lastly, I was given a few gifts from family and friends. 

I was given an Eddie Lacy tee, and Packer pajama bottoms (Hey! I'm from Green Bay!) and Gold Coast lip glosses from my immediate family. I was given an Applebees gift card from one of my cousins (not pictured). The gold necklace was given to me by my aunt. The Bath & Body Works Lotion in Beautiful Day was given to me by one of my closest friends. And I was given a LOT of alcoholic spirits to take home from some close friends (also not pictured).

Thank you so much for reading, I had a very enjoyable birthday weekend! Oh, and Virgos run the world!
