What I Got for My Birthday | Haul Time!

I love haul videos! Especially if they are a fun assortment of things. And my birthday haul (video above) is no exception! I got some beauty, shoes, home stuff AND kitchen gear!

Now, the older I get, I definitely buy myself presents. I can’t help it. All those stores send you birthday coupons, and I just can’t resist. Plus, my birthday (July 31) coincides perfectly with summer sales and back-to-school early fall releases. It’s a great time to hit the mall!

Here’s what I got!

Saga Mug from Anthropologie

Spring’s Eden Candle Tin in Pomegranate Peony from Anthropologie

Flats from Kelly & Katie (found at DSW)

Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch Bakeware Set

Cutco Knives Set (similar here)

Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum with Retinol

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Opal

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla

NARS Lip Pencils in Cruella and Rikugien (Free Sephora Birthday Gift)

Now this isn’t meant to be braggy! (Remember, I bought myself most of this) I just love a good haul video, and I love how much variety there is with these. Not just all beauty!

Have anything that you love to treat yourself to on your birthday? Do you have anything I mentioned?

    The “shimmering skin perfecter” on your cheekbones look really great! I also like the mug, it is a nice idea to buy yourself birthday mugs.

      It is nice! I like its a little thicker than other liquid concealers I’ve tried. It’s also easy to apply and blend. I still am not sure if it’s worth a repurchase yet… To be continued…

    Oh, I love that Becca shimmering skin perfector. It’s so pretty. Love those WS bakepans. I bet you’ll have fun with those. Happy belated Birthday!

    This video made me so excited for my own birthday haha! I can’t wait to pick up the NARS pencils from Sephora, they look amaze!! You got so many awesome things, and you sound just like me with candles: “The tin was so pretty, I had to have it!” That is legit a huge selling point for me too 🙂

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      I don’t burn candles often, but they MUST be in a pretty container 🙂 And I hope they have the NARS pencils when your birthday rolls around. They are amazing.
