What I got for my Birthday│2016│

And back to present life!!!

(But before that...)


If you haven't already checked out my last few posts they were ALL about my recent month long trip to India for a family wedding, and then just some good old fashioned family time! ☺️

1. India Trip│The Wedding!
2. India Trip│Lead up to the Wedding!
3. India Trip│Everything after The Wedding!

At the time these posts were getting uploaded my blog was having some issues with displaying photographs, and making them all blurry and ugly in the process :(

But it's all fixed now! :D So have a scroll through those posts to see some very colourful photos to say the least :P


AND BACK TO 2016! :P
Ahhh, it feels nice to be back in the present day on my blog ☺️

I love a new year because I always have so many goals I set for myself.

Another thing I really love is that I'm a January baby, it's nice for me that me being another year older coincides with all this growth that I'm planning/hoping to achieve!

Last week it was my birthday and I was so not overly excited for it, hahaha.

Last year everyone made a really big deal about my birthday, so this year I didn't even realise it was my birthday till a friend mentioned it to me 2 weeks before.

 All I really wanted was a night at home in pyjamas, with my TV and some yummy takeaway food :P.

Yeahhh, that didn't really happen...but I had an even better time thanks to the best friends and family I could ever ask for!

I always love seeing how other people got spoilt on their birthdays, so I thought it would be fun to show you what I got.

And man,

I got spoilt BEYOND. I was totally not expecting it one bit!


I got two perfumes!

Opium - Yves Saint Laurent

A long time back Mum and I were shopping and smelt this, and adored it, but I never thought of getting it and didn't really think of it again. 
I AM SO GLAD mum remembered and got this for me.
I have never been that big of a perfume person,
but this is TOTALLY going to become my signature perfume,

I have worn it every day since my birthday and guys, go find this at the shops and smell it.
Then buy it.
And thank me later. :P


Daisy - Marc Jacobs

Some of my best friends got me this and although I'm yet to try it, I'm so excited to!!!
I've always heard such great things about this perfume! :)


I got some makeup bits and pieces!

Givenchy Palette Collection - Travel Exclusive
My dad picked this up for me during one of his travels and wow! Never tried Givenchy makeup before, so needless to say, I'm quite keen to give these a go! ☺️

My best friends picked me up:
Mecca Cosmetica Lip Protectant  - Smells sooo yummy and is super hydrating!
Estee Lauder Pure Colour High Gloss - So pretty and sheen-y, slight sparkle with staying power!
MAC Tinted Lip Balm - Haven't tried this yet! But excited to see how this colour works out!


In Jewellery, last year on my 18th birthday my neighbours got me a pandora bangle with an 18th charm on it. Since then, I have wanted to slowly but surely fill it up!
Definitely a whole lot closer to that now, with these GORGEOUS charms! ❤️

Pandora Charms
My family got me the two on the left, and one of my best friends got me the left one!
This photo does not do them justice, they are so, so beautiful.

Cartier Love Bracelet
 Guys, I'm not even going to pretend this is the real deal :P 
Hahaha, because for those of you who have seen this before, you would know they are insanely expensive...I'm talking like $6000+ crazy dollars! Insanity!

With that being said, who doesn't love a knock off!?! :P 
One of my besties just came from a Hong Kong trip and picked this up for me, hehe - I LOVE IT. 
Those who know me know I adore me some rose gold (more like, lots and lots of it!).
So, this is definitely getting added to my everyday jewellery! ☺️


A group of my closest and best friends made me the most adorable pamper basket filled with a candle, bath bombs, gels and a spa voucher.

I mean it when I say I was spoilt ROTTEN. I don't think I deserved nearly this much, but my friends and family were so, so very sweet to me.

They also got me...


A video posted by Raashi Agarwal (@raashiagarwal) on
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen what I consider to be 
The most exciting thing. EVER.

A GIANT TEDDY BEAR. 53 inches in all its glory.
(It's legit just a bit smaller than me :P)
A year ago I randomly mentioned how I LOVED them - but never, ever, ever was I expecting one! 
(As you can probably tell by my reaction :P) 


I am OBSESSED with him.
I have nothing more to say.

I need a name for him!!! 
But I'm gonna take my time with it because it needs to be absolutely PERFECT.
I can't wait to do a full on photo shoot with him, hehe.

Like I said, I was spoilt BEYOND and am so incredibly lucky and blessed to have some of the greatest friends and family, gifts aside.
Cheesy, I know. But it's so, so true. ❤️

P.S. Since coming back it's been so randomly hectic for me, because I'm still on university holidays there's always a million different things going on. But, I finally feel like I'm getting some routine back in terms of keeping up with blogs and my own, thank you guys for being so patient with me ☺️ 
Keen to be back and hopefully keeping very up to date with all your blogs!

New blog post will be up next Tuesday!!!
