Holiday / Birthday Haul

Part One : The birthday present (and randoms) edition
I think hauls might be my favourite thing to read, or watch on the good old youtube scene, so I thought I would attempt my own. 
Recently I was away on a family holiday to Tenerife and it also happened to be my birthday. Since I have no income at the moment (poor little unemployed Claire) I took the chance at having some money to buy some new shiny clothes! The majority of the things I bought were from shops you can also find in the UK but there aren't any near my place of residence so it was a good chance for me to go to Zara everyday. And I mean everyday. My dad started just walking ahead to the nearest one because he knew I would want to go in....

Anyways I'm going to start with a few things I got from the family for my little birthday (23 years of sarcasm).
 I have been asking for a pocket watch necklace thing for a while now. My mum originally tried getting me one for Christmas but couldn't find one. However, we were having a walk through St. Enoch shopping center in Glasgow a few months ago and spotted one on those stalls you get. So, I already knew I was getting that one (the necklace in the center) but the other one (love heart shaped one) was a surprise from my brother. I already knew he had something else for me so it was a surprise to get this too! The other necklace is the cute Alice in Wonderland card shaped one which is also from mother dearest :)
The necklace from my mum and pocket watch from the bro are both from Argento. I think it is a shop in Glasgow...but it might be a brand. Not completely sure...
 The family were also kind enough to get me some rings too. The one in the center is a lovely silver floral ring and the gold one is a turtle! Both of these are again from Argento and suit my love of over sized costume jewelery. The other ring is a cute wee butterfly (looks better in real life to be honest) that I got in a random shop in Tenerife.
When on holiday I like to get myself some perfume. Last few times I have been away Ive gotten the Thierry Mugler Womanity, which is one of my favourite scents, but I decided to go for a different one this time. I thought about getting the Marc Jacobs Dot  one but my mum already has it so I can steal it off her!
So, about 20 perfume shops later I went for the Lancome Midnight Rose. Ive never really took any notice of Lancome before but the lovely face of Emma Watson has drawn me to the brand (good move there Lancome). I'm happy with it though. I have no idea how to describe scents but I'll go with "sweet", it reminds me of the smell of a sweetie shop...

 Handbag time!! I love myself a new handbag (or two) and I have been admiring these two for a while so naturally I asked for them for my birthday. This lovely yellow one from Zara (which pretty much everyone has) is great for people like me who refuse to wear colour 90% of the year. It looks fab with an all black outfit. Also, it is now on sale for £19.99.
The second bag I got was from my brother and is again from Zara. It is also on sale, which makes me happy since a few months ago I sat late at night with it in my virtual Zara shopping basket for about 3 hours. See if you wait long enough it will become your birthday and on sale! Boom (I need to apologise to myself for writing that word down...)

Im going to end this post here and upload the clothing one later. I would say its for length of posts reasons but actually some pieces need washing (or finding).

Bye guys.
