21st Birthday Haul and Gifts!!!

For my birthdays, I usually receive gifts in the form of money from my parents & relatives. I guess the reason why they give me cash instead of actual gifts is that they want me to be able to buy what I really want.

If you guys have been visiting this blog for sometime now, you know that I am an avid reader, so of course books was the first thing on my wish list.

I got a total of four novels, all of which were either horror or suspense/thriller. I've already read 3 out of 4 and I have to say that these are all good reads! The first book I read was Slasher Girls & Monster Boys. This has 14 short horror stories by different authors. After that, I read Cradle and All by James Patterson. I don't want to spoil the story but just to give you guys an idea, the plot is about two virgins getting pregnant, one with the son of God and the other with the son of Satan. Interesting, isn't it? I actually just finished reading The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight and the storyline has an unexpected plot twist! I am now on my 4th book, The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas.

I got these beautiful pair of beige oxfords from Forever 21. They also come in brown, black and oxblood. 

My mom and I went to SM Department store to buy my grandmother's birthday present and I saw this cute workout top & bottom which came in the colors gray and black. Since I already had a black workout set I decided to pick the gray one. That's me wearing it during my high school's family day (and yes I totally had to pose like a gangsta').

Okay, so I've been obsessing over Greyson Chance since he came out with new music and I just knew that I had to get my hands on his latest EP. I bought the Somewhere Over My Head EP and have since then been playing it non stop.

If you guys don't know I am a serious anglomaniac. I love all things British which is why I couldn't resist getting myself a pair of socks with the British flag on it.

I've had my eyes set on this Mango Quilted Bowling Bag since the first time I saw it and luckily, it was still in store so I bought the brown one because I realized that I don't have a brown bag in my collection. This also comes in black, gray and oxblood.

I'm not a cat person but I absolutely love these pair of socks!

The last two items that I got is the cream top and rust colored shorts that I'm wearing in the picture above. The top came from The Pad which is an online store, while the shorts are from Forever 21, and guess what? I got them on sale for half the price! Such a steal! I just love the embroidered details on the sides.

These were gifted to me. I enjoyed eating the gummy candy and chocolate since I have a sweet tooth and can't get enough of sweets.
