Let me first start by saying that I am not bragging in any way shape or form. I am truly thankful for my loving family everyday. I turned a year older on the 7th of this month. September has always been my favorite month of the year. It's the beginning of Fall/football season, my birthday, my little girl's birthday and our anniversary. I will be the first one to admit that I am very difficult to buy gifts for. I am at the point that there isn't much I need. Heaven knows I have more clothes than the average person would ever need. I don't want my family to spend money on my birthday just for the sake of buying something. However, spending a large sum of money on a birthday gift isn't always realistic either. To solve the "problem", we agreed to set aside a certain amount each special occasion until it's enough to splurge on a big ticket item. It's a way to save up and get what I really want instead of accumulate things in my closet.
Prada double bag in medium: We did take a look at this bag while we were in Chicago last month (there is no Prada boutique near where I live). However, it definitely wasn't on my purchase list anytime soon. A week before my birthday, for some odd reason, my husband decided to pull the trigger on this bag for me as a birthday/anniversary/Christmas gift this year (no complaints here!). I've mentioned before that my husband is someone who generally appreciates classic luxury goods whether they're for me or for him. As long as we take care of our family, he has no problem splurging here and there. To say that I am in love with the bag in a serious understatement =)
Ugg robe in baby pink: I got some birthday money from my in-laws so I spent it on this robe. I really needed a new bath robe and this one is amazing. I wish you could feel how soft it is through the computer screen. It definitely will keep me warm and cozy during the cold winter months.
Tarte Sculpt & Glow Radiant Essentials: I received this set from a good friend of mine and am really excited to try it out. Not being a makeup junkie, it's very hard for me to spend my own $$ on high-end make up products. Glad to have these beauties to play with.
Sephora birthday gift: A freebie c/o Sephora =)
Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in orchird: Courtney spent her allowance to purchase this lip-gloss for me. It was so sweet of her!
We didn't do anything extravagant for my birthday. My husband has been traveling non-stop for the past 2 months so I was just happy to have a day off (Labor Day). We went out to eat and just enjoyed each other's company. It was a blessed day!
