What I Got For Christmas | 2016

 

I didn’t know if I was going to write this post because I get worried that people are going to think that I’m showing off what I got but I did a poll on Twitter and it got (mostly) yeses, and to be honest I love reading posts like this because I’m a nosy cow and it gives me loads of ideas to buy things for people. I’ve linked as many things as I can down below, if I haven’t found the product online then I’ve linked a similar item, so if any of you want to do some shopping it’s a lot easier!

Also, apologies in advance, because I have forgotten to take pictures of some of my presents, mainly because I’ve either been using/wearing it non-stop or I couldn’t find it to photograph it (whoops).

Okay, I’m babbling, so let’s get on with it!


Cluse watch

Jack Wills jumper

Naked basics palette

Hair oil

Slipper socks (similar)

Benefit Brow Kit


 

 

I was so happy when I opened my Naked Basics palette, the colours are so Autumnal and I love my Naked | and Naked Smoky palettes so I knew I’d love this one!

I don’t own any clothing items from Jack Wills so I was very pleasantly surprised with this sweater. It’s so perfect because sometimes those thick jumpers get really hot!

I also received this Benefit Brow Kit, which I’m so excited to use. I love doing my brows but I don’t like them to over-filled, so this ‘Natural Brow Kit’ was perfect for me!

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a pair of fluffy socks, and I love these! I needed a few pairs of socks this winter anyways so these were perfect for me.

I loved this hair oil; my hair rends to get very frizzy and this is something that I hope will help. I love this brand so I can’t wait to start using this!

Lastly, I got this gorgeous Cluse watch, it’s the grey strap with the rose gold design. I had my eye on the marble face but this would have been the next best thing so I’m so happy with it!


Onesie (similar)

Chelsea boots x2

Rucksack (similar)

Scarf (similar)

Kat Von D liquid lipstick (Lolita)


I can’t post a picture of my onesie as I’ve been living in it for the past few days but it’s so fluffy and comfy! It’s the grey (bunny-eared) one from Primark, so if you can find it, I would fully recommend getting it!

I’ve been needing a pair of Chelsea boots for ages, so I was so happy opening these black ones, in both suede and normal black. They are going to be used so much!

 I’m actually obsessed with my blanket scarf, it’s huge, it’s cosy and it’s just perfect for winter.

I was so excited to open this Kat Von D liquid lipstick in the shade ‘Lolita’, I’ve had my eye on it for a while now, I think the colour is beautiful and I don’t own anything by Kat Von D so hopefully this will let me build up my collection!

I also received a black rucksack which I was really happy with. It wasn’t my usual style, but I think it’s a really practical present which I will hopefully get a lot of use out of!


Hairbands

Merakhi oil

Mini Motherpucker Lipglosses

 

These twisted hairbands were so cute, they are twisted so they don’t kink your hair when it’s straight. SO helpful!

Ever since I watched Nishi V’s video on how she got rid of her dark circles, I knew I had to get my hands on this oil. I hope it helps me.

I have been wanting a Sexy Mother Pucker Lipglosses by Soap & Glory for ages. They plump up your lips so expect lots of pouty Instagram posts!


 
Zoella Bath Salts
Zoella Body Mist

I participated in a Blogger’s Secret Santa this Christmas, and it was honestly amazing. I met so many lovely fellow bloggers, and everyone was so welcoming. We had a budget, and I had the best time shopping for my Secret Santa! For my present, I received two Zoella Beauty products. I hadn’t used anything from the Zoella Beauty range before so it was actually quite nice. I really love the scent of the Body Mist, which I didn’t think I would! Looking forward to using the bath salts now!

 

Letter candle

Rose gold ring holder (similar)

Slippers (similar)

I also participated in a Blogger’s Christmas Swap, which was also so fun. For this, I only had to get to know one person who was my Blogger Pair. She was so lovely and I’m so glad that I got to know her! She got me this gorgeous ‘D’ candle, which smells insane and I can’t wait to burn. I also received this beautiful pair of slippers, which are so insanely comfortable and cosy! I have been living in these recently. Lastly, I got a rose gold rhino-shaped ring holder, which is adorable and I’m so excited to start using it!

So, thats everything I received for Christmas! What did you get for Christmas?

I’d love to see what you got, so if you’ve done this kind of post, please link it below!

I’ve never owned anything Jack Wills as I always tend to forget to have a browse on there! Will need to have a wee peek now and grab a jumper before the winter months are over with! Lovely post!

    I must admit I’m ever so jealous of the watch. The rest was really pretty, but I couldn’t stop staring at the watch!
    Hope you had a lovely Christmas!
    Happy New Year.
