What I Got For Christmas

As a disclaimer before I start this post, I am in no way bragging about what I got for Christmas, I enjoy reading other people's posts like this so I thought I would do one myself. I like reading them because they give me ideas of what I could look for in the sales or add to my wish list, and just because I'm a bit nosey! I am very grateful for everything I received for Christmas this year and am very thankful to all my generous family and friends. I haven't included every single thing in this post, just the main bits and bobs.
In the above picture are a few of the DVDs I was given, one of which being the JLS Goodbye Tour DVD. Me and my mum went to see the concert on the 21st December and she apparently ordered it the next day and amazingly it turned up in time for Christmas! So thats a nice little memory from that evening of my lovely JLS boys.

above - The Little Mermaid DVD, JLS Goodbye Tour DVD, The Hangover Trilogy BluRay, Topshop bag, Camo Print Converse, Topshop Heels

I always love to get books at Christmas and I was lucky enough to be given all these this year. I actually chose the joke book myself for my stocking from my boyfriend, I'm quite simple minded and silly jokes make me laugh so much, my favourite one so far is 'Whats blue and square???   ....... An orange in disguise!' I'm very easily pleased haha.

My mum got me the big Soap & Glory box set this year which I was really excited about, and my boyfriend also got me a couple more Soap & Glory bits and Lush goodies. So I will be pampering myself in the new year!

Ciate Caviar Manicure, Ciate Velvet Manicure, Essie Stroke of Brilliance, Elegant Touch House of Holland Get Nailed Set, Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, Alpha H Liquid Gold, Lady Million Perfume

The Ciate sets from my mum I actually knew about as she got them at the Clothes Show Live for £5 each, but the House of Holland set was a surprise that I didn't even know she had heard me say! So I look forward to trying out lots of different nail looks! And I was very excited to be given the Emma Hardie cleansing balm by my boyfriend as I love it so much. He wrote on the tag that he bought it for me 'because it makes your face so soft', so actual proof from a boy that it does work!


One of my main presents this year was the gorgeous red dress in the picture above. When I was searching for a dress for graduation back in November I tried on this dress and fell in love with it, but decided that as my robes were partly purple, and the dress code said dark clothes, I shouldn't get it. I was completely lovesick for it and I was so excited that my mum had bought it for me when I opened it on Christmas day. Its something I would wear for a dressed up occasion, so I can't wait for an opportunity to wear it! The other two things in the picture were from my boyfriends family, I love them both so much! I wanted a tartan skirt for ages and this is the perfect one, its brushed cotton so its very cosy and wintery!

I was also given quite a few other things including chocolates, pjs, vouchers, and other nice bits. I am so thankful to everyone who gave me a present, and I hope everyone I gave a present to liked what I gave them. I actually made quite a few presents this year for people as I wanted to make use of my sewing machine, and I was really pleased how they turned out. It made me feel really good actually putting my time into gifts for my family and friends.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family and got nice gifts too! And seeing as a took a week off blogging over Christmas, here is my belated Merry Christmas to you!

Stila 'Color Outside the Lines' Eye Liner Set

Stila 'Color Outside the Lines' Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Set - £36 at Space NK

As I have mentioned in a previous post, I was interning at ASOS the week of their Christmas press and blogger party and helped out at the event. At this event there was a Father Christmas giving out presents (half of which I wrapped), and at the end of the event, me and the other interns were lucky enough to be given one of these presents and I got this Stila eye liner set. I was pretty happy about this because I had been eye-ing it up whilst wrapping it! In the tin there are 5 different eye liners to choose from. I have so far only used the black one but I can see myself definitely using the brown shade as well. I think I will try the purple and blue shades for more of a party occasion. The only shade I can't see myself using is the turquoise eye liner, its a bit out-there for me! The eye liners are definitely very smudgy and easy to use, I also like that they are the 'twist-up' format, I much prefer eye liners like that, rather than ones you need to sharpen. My only worry is that they will run out fast because they are so smudgy so it feels like you use a lot of it in one go. But we shall see! Overall I am very grateful to have been given this and I really like it!

Now we all know why I don't write many beauty posts, Im not too good at describing the old beauty products!

New In

Shoes - ASOS - £18

I was given a voucher for ASOS as a present for my graduation and when I was browsing the site wondering what to spend it on I found these beauties. I had been lusting after a pair of leopard print slip on shoes like these after seeing the Sandro ones and falling in love, then discovering that Gap had a similar pair but were out of stock everywhere, at this point I resigned myself to the fact they weren't meant to be. Until ASOS came in and saved the day, well done ASOS! And the cheapest of the bunch too! Money well spent.
