Birthday Club

I joined the Lacquered Me Birthday Club a little over one year ago. There are so many birthday clubs now, so if the idea interests you, it will not be hard to find one or you could start one yourself. Basically twelve ladies (or gentlemen) get together, one for each month of the year. Ideally, you get the month of your birth. Each month, every member sends out a gift to the person who has that month. Meaning when your month rolls around, you get eleven presents in the mail.

My birthday was in August. It has taken awhile for the last of my gifts to get here because of personal reasons with some of the girls in the birthday club. But the goodies were worth the wait.

I rarely post haul pictures anymore, but I wanted to share the lovely gifts I received. It was a lot of fun putting together gifts each month and it was fun receiving them as well.

My gift from Bee! Zoya Midori and Tallulah. Plus yummy candies, some samples to try, bubble bath, and a card.

My awesome gift from Kristal! L'Oreal Owl's Night, Sally Hansen Diamond, Sinful Colors Fiji, Sugar Sugar, and Purple Diamond. Along with Avon Moisture Therapy, Salon Effects Teal With It, Burt's Bees Mango Butter lip balm, a cute bird nail file, and a card. 

My great gift from Erika! ICING After Party, Pre-game, and Zoya Tallulah. Plus OPI ginger lily lotion, gummies, a candy bar, a postcard, streamers, and balloons.

My adorable gift from Jodi! OPI Shatter the Scales, Essie Head Mistress, OPI Suzi & the 7 Dusselldorfs, and Poshe Fast Drying Basecoat. Along with pedi-sox, laffy taffy, and a card.

My pretty gift from Sarah! China Glaze Instant Chemistry, Essence It's Purplicious, Lip Vitamins Banana Split lip balm, an owl mirror, OPI Avojuice Cran & Berry, yummy candy, and a card.

My beautiful gift from Ju! Wet n Wild Party of Five Glitters (mini), China Glaze Avalanche, Trind CC106, Milani Signature Gold, mascara, cute lipgloss, blush, samples, and an adorable handmade card.

My lovely present from Arielle! Three H&M polishes (red, black, purple), Pumpkin Glow in the Dark Orange, Orly Elsbeth's Rose, a manicure set stored in a flip flop, Hello Kitty Halloween stickers, candy, a card, and cute little bands around each polish (that glow in the dark).

My cute gift from Andrea! Cutie Girl polish, Sally Hansen Lustrous, L.A. Colors Sassy Sparkle, lip balm, two eye shadows, mani/pedi kit, postcard, candy, tons of sequins/confetti and a necklace. 

My awesome present from Sarah! Kleancolor Holo Pink, Lex Tuilleries, Essence Choose Me!, candy (including the empty M&M bag hiding in the back because I ate them before the picture), striping tape, samples, owl tattoo, owl nail polish ring, felt owl, and a postcard.

My great present from Amber! Sinful Colors Cinderella, Kissy, Dazzle, OPI Avojuice Mango, Julep scrub & lotion, crystal file, cute pen, and oodles of candy.

If you've been counting, that's ten gifts. Earlier, I mentioned getting eleven gifts during your birthday month. Well, one of the ladies in our group has not been heard from in months. Ninon from I Drink Nail Polish. She hasn't been on her blog, twitter, facebook, pinterest, or anything since February. Ju even tried sending her a card in the mail and never heard anything back. We're all worried about her. If anyone has heard from her, please let me know.


  1. What an awesome idea! I have got to join one. I love send packages and picking out stuff for other people. You've got some FAB polishes! I really want Suzi and the 7 Dusseldorfs. lol!

    1. It is so much fun! You definitely have to find one to join. I'm thinking about starting one after the beginning of the year. Too much craziness with the holiday season to even begin to organize that.

      Most of these I did not know I wanted until I opened the package. :)

  2. Wow - how fun! I have to look into this - I cannot recall getting anything but maybe a card for my b'day for a good 20 yrs or more now! This would be fun!

  3. Wow I had fun going through all your goodies... hope u had fun with those pretties soon ~!
