Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing what I got for my 28th birthday! It’s rare for me to share what I bought and got for my birthday except for the time I shared one back in 2017 for my 24th birthday here. I don’t normally have a big enough haul to create a whole post dedicated to all the things I got but this year was different. I manage to snag a couple of things from my 28th birthday wish list here so you might recognize some of the items from there. I was so grateful to pick me some things for my birthday and I wanted to share all the new products I got so that’s what I’m doing today. Keep reading to find out all the details and what I got for my 28th birthday!
What I Got For My 28th Birthday
Most of the gifts in this post I bought myself and treated myself this year. A lot of them were bought from the after Christmas sales and I’ve left them unopened here in my room. I thought they would be great to open on my birthday 4 months later. I’ve been waiting patiently but it made it more fun to open. My family still lives in Manila so I had no one to get me anything but I don’t mind buying my own gifts and my dad said he would let me pick what I wanted that was from him so that is what I did too. I’d love to know if you buy you’re own gifts too and treat yourself.
I got a few beauty items for myself. I picked up the Ulta makeup train case with some of their products in it. My dad saw this on the back of the Ulta catalog and said he wanted to get me that so I ordered it and picked it up on my birthday. Of course I got my free gift in store as well which was a cleanser. I can’t wait to try both. Last month I got the Tarte x Pretty Basic palette when Remi & Alisha launched it and I’ve been waiting to use it. Then I went to Sephora on my birthday as well and bought the Rare Beauty Liquid Blush in Bliss and again the free birthday gift they offered. Last is the One Direction Our Moment Perfume. I have no idea why I bought this but I’m glad I did and it takes me back to my old fangirl days when I was obsessed with them. I mean I still kind of am and it was a fun gag gift.
Next was my “big” present and I have wanted this curling wand since for forever. I know I have featured it on many wish lists here on the blog. I finally bit the bullet back in January when the whole site was 50% off and it was such a good deal I couldn’t pass it up. It came a week later and since then I’ve had it in it’s box until my birthday. The T3 Curling Wand has been on so many blogs and Youtube videos that I wanted to test the hype. I’m so happy I finally got it and can’t wait to use it. I also got some hot pink heat protectant gloves and pad to place it on. Of course they had to be my fave color.
My favorite category which are bags. I love my bags so of course I had to buy one except I bought two. The hot pink one was my going out to birthday dinner bag and it is so cute. it’s only meant for taking out to a restaurant though as it is so small. It does look cute on my shelf though and matches my décor in my room. The second bag I bought in February and was meant to be my Valentine’s Day bag but it didn’t come in time so I left it alone and treated it as my birthday present instead. I love these two bags and so happy they joined my bag collection.
You know you’re getting older when you get excited to get kitchen appliances for your birthday. I guess that’s 28 for you. I got the Nutri Chopper from my dad who saw it at the VA clinic when we went and we saw the ad on TV and I knew I needed something like it so he decided for me to get it and it was considered a gift. I can’t wait to make my life easier now with this thing. Then I got a pink Toaster Oven. I said when I moved out into my own place I would buy all pink kitchen appliances and so far I’ve made that come true. I have a lot of the Dash brand appliances and they are all so good. I love them and they are the cutest plus the colors are darling. I love this as a gift and can’t wait to make toasty breads.
Last category is tech, I got a few tech items. I love all of them and was so excited for them. I got my dad a power bank for his birthday as he didn’t have one and I was influenced by a blogger I follow. I thought it was a great gift and I got jealous but I wanted a hot pink one and I searched and finally found one. It’s perfect and can’t wait to not lose power on my phone when I’m out. The second biggest present I got was another pair of Apple Airpods. It was a late birthday gift as I got these 10 days after my birthday and they weren’t even featured in the haul on my Youtube channel. Only on here so that’s lucky you get to see them. I love them and so grateful for working Airods now.
Then we have two Amazon purchase I just turned into my gifts. A faux leather sleeve for my Bluetooth keyboard and a rechargeable eclectic lighter so I don’t have to get my dad to light my candles for me as I’m too scared of the one I own. It turned out to be cute gifts. Last item isn’t tech but I got back into reading this year and saw this in a Booktubers vlog and it made me remember I loved that book so much and the collectors edition looked beautiful. I went to Barnes and Noble on my birthday and got to browse in a book store again which felt amazing and I walked out with this book. The experience of buying it made it extra special too. So this is one of my fave gifts.
That’s what I got for my 28th birthday! I’m so grateful and happy to share all the gifts with you. That concludes all my birthday posts and can’t believe I entered my 28th year. I’m so excited to use all my gifts and you will see them in future posts on here. I’d love to know your favorite gift you’ve ever got or bought yourself. Thanks so much for reading about what I got for my 28th birthday! xo
