Benefit Bathina. This is in a beautiful tin so easy to take away for weekends and holidays. It's a satiny smooth solid moisturiser that you apply to your body with the little pouf. It smells very retro and 50s which is a good thing in my book. I tried some last night and it was lovely.
Nails Inc - I Can Paint A Rainbow. How fun is this? Six very cute little bottles of bright and summery colours. I love it. Not played yet but I can see many hours of fun ahead.
Essie - Meet Me At Sunset. It's like my friends know I love nail varnish! This is a truly bright orange. I can't wait to apply it.
Guerlain - Mitsouko. Please pay attention, this is a parfum. A parfum. Now I feel like a proper grown up. And look at that packaging. It's heaven in a box. I am deeply in love.
Jo Malone Grapefruit. I asked for this but my friend being ever so generous super-sized it. I adore this and have just run out. Yay.
These are some of my presents - they didn't all fit in the picture. You may be able to see a gorgeous Mulberry make up bag nestling in there. Oh so stylish. And a wonder woman mirror! And yes, that is a Selfridges box with a gift card inside...
Truly life does begin at 40. Thank you to my generous friends - love you all.
