As some of you may know (if you follow my Instagram especially), it was my 22nd birthday last week! I had a lovely weekend surrounded by my friends, family and boyfriend and was well and truly spoilt with lovely cards, gifts and THREE cakes!! One of my favourite presents was my gorgeous new Olivia Burton watch (pictured below), which was a gift from my mum that I actually picked out myself a while ago. I've already got a watch by the same brand which is more of a casual day-to-day style, but I wanted something a little bit more suited to the evening without it being overly glitzy and sparkly! I'm absolutely in love, and even though I said I would keep it for evening and special occasions, I have been wearing it during the day too!

Another favourite present was from my lovely boyfriend, and his present to me is actually a day out! He's arranged for us to go up The Shard in London, and have a three course meal at a London restaurant which I'm super excited about because I love spending time in London. We're also going to go to the zoo during April time which should be such a fun day out...especially as all the new babies will be being born in the zoo!

Lastly...(and what this post is mainly about) I'm going to talk about my other favourite present. For ages now I've wanted to start creating an eyeshadow palette from MAC, but didn't want to buy one of the really big ones as they're quite hard to store. So for my birthday, my lovely housemates bought me one of the eyeshadow quads which you can fill up yourself and decide which colours you want in there. I think this is such a great idea because you can create unique palettes to suit you individually, and let's be honest..we never use every single colour in most pre-made palettes anyway! It's also magnetic which means you can change around the colours if you want every once in a while. To get me started, they bought me the shade 'humid' which is a gorgeous deep, forest green colour. I was really happy with this because I don't actually own anything like it. I've always been told that green eyeshadow suits people with brown hair and eyes really well, and so I was excited to try it out!

I thought I'd create a look using this eyeshadow because I couldn't wait any longer to use it...and so decided to pair it with a warm bronzed look, because I always think that greens and golds work really well together. So I've linked the video down below of the look that I created, and I really hope you enjoy it!

Let me know if there are any other looks that you want me to try out...or just videos in general. I'm slowly getting used to filming but still haven't got the editing perfected, so please bear with me on that part!

Love Emily
