What I got for Christmas 2016

It's been a week since I last posted something over here but I am hoping that this new year will bring some consistency to my blog. Today I thought I would show you what I got for Christmas. I personally really love these posts so I thought I would share mine with you today. Just a little disclaimer I am not bragging in any way! I am super thankful for everything that I got and I just thought you guys would enjoy this post. Also a little side note if you do just want to read about the beauty bits I got they will be at the bottom of the post so you can just scroll right down!
First off I got a couple of super cute bits from New look. The first is a Unicorn beanie, it is scented with lavender and you just pop it in the microwave for 60 seconds and it's the best hot water bottle. I also got some triceratops slippers which are both the coolest and the warmest slippers I have ever worn! I love these kind of jokey cool presents as they are always super useful as well as something a little different.

I love a good Yankee candle so one of my best friends picked me up the scent black cherry. This is actually my all time favourite scent so I was pretty impressed that she picked out this one. If you haven't tried this one before than I highly suggest you go and smell it because it is amazing.
Another couple of stocking filler bits from my Mum and Dad were a couple of baubles from boots, the first is a Fat face one which had a cute little lip balm which went straight in my bag and a mini lip gloss. The other one had a super cute pair of Polar bear and penguin socks.
My other best friend bought me some bits from Paperchase. I needed a new travel cup so she bought me a really cute floral one as well as a food and fitness trackers and a super cute unicorn rubber (As you may have realised I'm a fan of unicorns)
I got a couple more packets of Primark Stiletto nails which I wear all the time, I got some stunning marble ones which are such a blogger aesthetic, a deep burgundy matte pair and some monochrome cracked ones.
My main present off my Mum and Dad was a coat from Superdry. I think I've mentioned on my blog before that I am going to Iceland in February and this is super thick and very warm. It's also quite long meaning it is hopefully going to keep my bad hip warm!

My Dad's best friends wife knows a local lady who makes her own bath bombs and soaps and things so she got me a set of six bath bombs. These smell so beautiful and the biggest thing I love about these are that they are so natural and that they don't irritate my Eczema when it flares up. These are so lovely and I would highly recommend you check out Coconut blush if you love a good bath or have very sensitive skin.

I got this really pretty little bag and purse from River island. I've actually been looking for a new smaller bag forever and this one is perfect. It's big enough to fit my keys, purse, phone and sunglasses but is small enough that I can't just stuff it full of crap.

My Mum knows I am a huge fan of Oasis so she got me the Supersonic DVD which I absolutely cannot wait to watch.
First off for beauty I got a couple of bits from Kat Von D's Shade and light range. First off I got the large palette which contains 12 shades and I also got the mini Shade and light in the shade Rust which is the prefect me palette.
Something I've been lusting over forever is the Urban Decay Sin Highlighter. This is the most incredible champagne shade which I have literally been painting my entire face with as it's so pretty. This is what I expected the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer to be like!
I got a couple of Mac lipsticks from my brother, the first shade is Amorous which is a very pretty berry colour and the other is Chilli which is a very me burnt/brick orange red.

Something that has been on my wishlist since the day it came out was the Urban Decay Ultimate naked basics and I was incredibly happy to find it under my tree. The shades are absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to get more use out of it.

I also got some Kiko bits, I picked these out when we went to the Trafford centre and the are all so pretty, I got the colour fever eye quad in 100, the Long lasting shadows sticks in 05, 07 and 37 and one of the intense colour liners in the shade 800.

Last but most certaintly not least I have another palette which I have been lusting after since it's launch, I have got so much use out of the Moondust palette so far and I cannot wait to use it more. I also got a couple of the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks which are another thing I have been wanting since they were released. In the end I picked out Bow n arrow and Lolita II and I absolutely love them both and I am definitely going to be needing to expand my collection.

So that's it for today, if you have written one of these posts then leave it in the comments as I find them so interesting to read!


  1. I love your beauty gifts... I can't wait to see some reviews on those. I absolutely love the unicorn microwave beanie... seriously obsessed with unicorns. I actually picked it up in Primark before and then put it back lol.
