First and foremost, I hope you all had an amazing Christmas! It seems to have been and gone insanely quick this year but I was incredibly spoilt by my lovely family and friends and I have completely indulged over the last week. Too much chocolate and too much cheese but I don’t regret any of it. I’m really nosey when it comes to posts like this so I thought I would share some of the lovely gifts I received for Christmas.
Now considering I didn’t really need or want anything in particular this year, I was overwhelmed by the amount of beautiful gifts I received. As someone who loves beauty and makeup I think I am relatively easy to buy for! After lusting for it for months, my boyfriend very kindly gifted me the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (he must have been reading my wish lists!). I also received the Urban Decay All Night Liquid Foundation. I gave this a go yesterday and OMG I’m in love with it already! The matte finish is incredible! I may have been a little late to the party, but I was also very kindly given the Look Fantastic and M&S beauty advent calendars for Christmas from my parents. I have enough skincare and haircare miniatures to last me all year. Any particular concerns and I’m covered! This is the first year that I’ve received beauty advent calendars and based on the contents I would highly recommend giving them a go next year, the range and size of the products are really impressive and you certainly get your monies worth!
In addition to plenty of beauty bits, I also received a fresh stash of LUSH products! My friends and family know I’m a sucker for LUSH and so it was probably no surprise that I received two of the Sweet Christmas gift sets as well as the Great Balls of Bicarb and some lovely individual bath bombs as well. If I didn’t smell nice enough after all of this then I was also given the Viva La Juicy perfume from my boyfriend. To make the house smell festive all year round, my Mum also kindly bought the Yankee Candle miniatures set which includes Macaron Treats and Red Apple Wreath.
In a bid to keep organised this year I also received the beautiful Kikki K 2017 Diary in pistachio along with a lovely Words to Inspire book. I received a beautiful new ring from Pandora from my boyfriend. It’s a lovely silver infinity ring design which I had been eyeing up for a while! I also received some new underwear, pyjamas, Winter clothing and of course, the compulsory fluffy socks! I was completely overwhelmed with the lovely gifts I received this year and cannot wait to try them all out and share my thoughts with you.
Did you have a lovely Christmas? What did you get this year?
