Hey lovelies, welcome back to another post! My posting schedule has been a bit all over the place since Christmas with me trying to cram posts in here and there but after this post I’ll be uploading on Tuesday and Saturday each week hopefully. Make sure you’re following me on Twitter so you don’t miss a post, I know I used to post three times a week but it got too much so I’m going to see how I get on just posting twice!
If you saw my post on Saturday then you’ll have already seen all the Disney items I got for Christmas, in this post I’ll be showing you everything else I got from my family/friends/colleagues.
Disclaimer again, I’m not bragging, when I asked on Twitter the majority of you voted for me to do my ‘What I Got For Christmas’ in two parts. I’m SO grateful for everything I received and I thought I’d share it because personally I love these kinds of posts/videos.
I didn’t get many beauty items this year for Christmas but honestly it’s because my collection is already so big and it needs decluttering rather than adding to! If you saw my Christmas Wishlist you’ll know that I’d asked for the Identity palette from Beauty Bay and that I needed a new All Nighter spray by Urban Decay. My Mom ordered the palette when I asked and she also managed to pick up a new All Nighter spray which came as a duo with the ‘Rebound’ spray, I’ve never tried that one so I can’t wait to see what it’s like!
I also got a Benefit cracker which I’m super excited about as it has 4 mini products in for me to try, I’ve wanted to test their ‘Hoola’ bronzer for ages but it also comes with a ‘Porefessional’ primer, ‘Watts Up’ highlighter and ‘They’re Real’ mascara which I’ve heard is fab!
The final beauty item I got was a Holler and Glow face mask. These are only £3 from Primark and they’re great to keep in your drawer for whenever you’re having a pamper night!
Again if you saw my Christmas Wishlist, you’d know that I bought a beautiful candle holder in this design and wanted the matching pieces for our new home. My amazing Mom managed to get me the wax melter from the same store I bought the candle holder from but they’d sold out of the shade and tray for the large jar candles but she managed to find it online for me! She’s such a gem! How stunning is this?!
On the subject of our new home, instead of creating us a ‘movie night’ box like she usually does, this year Mom created me a cleaning box full of all the things I’ll need when we move out. I literally don’t think she’s forgot anything, there’s sponges, dusters, bleach, polish, Zoflora etc. my cupboards will definitely be well stocked!
Can you see a running theme here?! 50% of the things I got for Christmas this year were for our new home but hey, I’m not complaining! Mom got us another candle holder with a gorgeous butterfly design, some food bag clips and some measuring spoons. She also got us some stacking mugs which are a marble design from Debenhams (still in stock as I’m writing this), I absolutely love them!
My Secret Santa from work got us this marble tray as well as some oven trays which I haven’t pictured and my Nan got us a wok ready for all the cooking I’ll be doing!
Books & Chocolates
The final things I got for Christmas were ‘What If It’s Us’ a book by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera which I can’t wait to read so thanks to Ash for getting me that and some of my favourite chocolates! I had 4 bags of these Vanilla Truffles from Thorntons, they’re SO good, if you haven’t tried them then you need to!!
What was your favourite gift this year?! Let me know in the comments!
