Fairy cakes, Birthday gifts & Christmas presents

I haven't blogged as much as I usually do, we've been at my mums over Christmas and its been rather busy. We are home now, the Christmas decorations have been taken down and put away, kids bedrooms sorted out to make way for all their new toys and Mr.A's back at work :-(

I've just managed to sit down to write this post, its my birthday today (I'm 24!) and have had a bit of a rubbish day to be honest. Ozzy is poorly and won't let me put him down, he has a viral infection and conjunctivitis, all he keeps doing is whinging and crying.  I also had an appointment about the lump in my neck, antibiotics haven't helped so its going to be removed (I'm going to have more scars on my neck than a bloomin' vampire victim!) 

Me and the girls made some fairy cakes today, Lily decided to lick them, nibble a little bit, put it back then start on another. Willow got stressed as her icing set before her decorations went on so they wouldn't stick...oh the joys of having a fussy child! They tasted yummy though, for once I DIDN'T burn them!

Lovingly decorated by the kiddies

My lovely best friend bought me some Minnie Mouse pyjamas from the Disney Store for my birthday. I can't wait to wear them tonight :-)

I've had some Models Own makeup brushes, some new trousers for the gym and some Tinkerbell Pixie Dust perfume (smells AMAZING!) from Mr.A.

The tips are meant to be orange but I took the photo after I'd used them so they are discoloured

I smelt this in the Disney Store before Christmas and fell in love with it. It is sweet but really fresh, only problem is it doesn't last very long. 

My dad gave me money for my Birthday which I spent on a coat from H&M, it was in the sale for £17, bargain! 
My mum has ordered me some boots from Missguided.co.uk, I will post about them when they arrive :-)

I'm a little late with the Christmas gifts post but here are a few of the things I received...

A lovely scented candle from my mum (she had paid for my Britney Spears ticket as my main birthday present)

My sister bought me these from Forever 21

From my best friend (The Little Mermaid is my favourite film EVER)

Mr.A bought me some Reebok Easytone trainers for the gym. I had these just before Christmas though :-)

My sister bought me this knuckle duster clutch bag, I friggin LOVE it!!!

Skulls <3

I had a few other bits and bobs including some pink Skull Candy headphones and another Alexander McQueen skull scarf (in black and red this time).

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year, I'm a little sad its all over but am looking forward to next Christmas already! :-D

  2. how do you find the models own brushes? I want to try them...

    Alex, The Models Own brushes were from Boots, about £10 for the set. They're classed as mini brushes but I think they are a great size.
