Christmas time: Haul and Presents.

So Christmas is over for another year, all that hype and it is over within hours! I hope you all had a lovely day and a nice break from school/work/uni to relax and enjoy the company of your loved ones!

This year it seemed a lot of people were spoilt - I felt like I was too! My main gifts aren't in this post as I got them early (a Ralph Lauren blazer and more clothes which have been featured in OOTD). I am sure many of you were spoilt from partners, parents and friends! I hope you all had a lovely day and got everything you wanted. With that said, my post is about things I got and things I have bought from the sales or Christmas eve! I think many sales have been great this year, but most of the bits I wanted weren't sale items. If only MAC did sales! 

I would like to disclaim that this post is not in anyway bragging about what I got. I realise how lucky I am to receive these gifts and thank my parents a lot for working hard to provide me with these gifts. Also, everything I have bought myself has been from gift money or my wages, I do not just get money from my parents on demand! With that said, I will show you what I got. 






I got this lovely Body Shop set from my grandparents which smells absolutely amazing. I love mango or anything really fruity so this gift was so nice. I also got other gifts sets including Phil Smith, Gok Wang, Mandara Spa and FCUK


I finally got some Real Techniques brushes. I love them and I have now decided to treat myself to some more next Payday! They are so great and I have noticed a lot of difference in my eye make-up since using them!


Okay, so I got the classic sweets, chocolates etc. I did have more...but I ate them. I can't wait to dig into the cocktail classic Jelly Beans! How exciting. 


I got the Jimmy Choo moisturiser which smells amazing, the Vaseline and the soap as little presents from 'Santa' which are just so useful. I then went and bought myself these Simple toner and cleanser yesterday after watching Tanya Burr's video. I never did the whole tone, cleanse thing before but it will be a new years promise to keep it up! 




And onto the shoes. I am obsessed with shoes, I was thinking of doing a post on my shoe obsession because it really is bad! I buy shoes all the time. Firstly are my Select boots which I got yesterday. They are just so comfy and I thought they would be great for everyday wear. Secondly my suede London Rebel shoes which I got in my stocking. They are so cute and go with so many things! Lastly, my suede wedge booties from New Look which I have wanted for a while. They are so cosy, I love them.  


Scents...I wanted a Chanel perfume and my parents pretending I wasn't getting one, so you can imagine my delight when I opened this and there it was! It completely made my day. I love the smell of it! I also got this Ghost one which again smells really nice, so fresh. Finally another mango smelling product from Body Shop which smells so good! 


Well...it wouldn't be Christmas without socks.


I got these two bags in the sales. The first is from Marks and Spencer and I loved the colours, they are so neutral and will go with everything! The studded bag from George is just going be for going out or days when I don't want to carry everything around!



Make up. I didn't really get any make up for presents as my mum finds me too hard to buy for, so I usually just get my own. I got the No7 BB foundation, which I will review, and I absolutely love it. Then the 17 smokey eye was a gift from my nanny! The MAC products were something I have wanted for ages. I wanted the bronzing powder for a while which I finally got and I wanted Russian Red, they didn't have it but they had a really similar one in the Viva Glam range which I chose! Then two lip butters, Burts Bees is my new favourite product! I love it. Then two Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks in a red and pink! 



I got this faux fur headband from my grandparents which I love. I wanted one like this for ages so was so happy, now I just need a scarf to go with it! 


Topshop dress was something I grabbed in the sale. It is a really nice colour and I might wear it for New Years Eve! Not too sure yet!



My mum knew I had wanted some leather gloves for a long time and got me these, they're so comfy!


My onesie from Next and slipper! They are so comfy and I could live in them! I would highly advise any of you who haven't got a comfy onesie, to get one! 




Lace Top was from Republic!

I would like to say a huge thank you to my parents, family and 'santa' for my lovely gifts! 

What did you get?

  5. Wow, that's quite a haul and presents! I got the Real Techniques one a while back, and just got the Core collection recently. It has made such a difference to my make-up. I can't recommend them enough, especially the buffer brush for foundation. It's really good.
    I had the Vaseline tin for Christmas too! I love it, there's lots of goodies in it. And I can't live without my Simple products. They are so good arn't they!

    Found your blog via the #bbloggers chat, and loving your beauty posts!
