Thirtieth Birthday Haul

Friday was my thirtieth birthday and, might I also add, one of the best days of my life.  All day long, everything-- from buses, to the demeanor or others, to even the line at Jack in the Box-- seemed to be pleasant and going my way.  It was fantastic!

Since I discussed the emotional experience of my birthday earlier this week, I thought I would share with you the gifts I got on my big day.  Where available I have included links to the items.

The Urban Decay Theodora pallet (buy here).  I gave the eyeline that came with the pallet to my mom since I don’t wear black eyeliner and she was in need of a good waterproof one.



From my mom:

A pair of TOMS (buy here).

A dressing table set (similar).

Sadly, what you see it's the entirety of my makeup collection.  There is lots more that I still need to organize.  As soon as I have my makeup organization in a place where I am entirely pleased with it, I'll create a post all about it.

A tray for my vanity with a Paris theme that says “je t'aime” (buy here). Both the tray and the dressing table are in keeping with the Francophone style in which my room is being redecorated.



While I certainly made out like a fat rat in a cheese factor, the best part of my birthday was the happiness of the day!  I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect!
