Being the nosy person that I am, What I Got For Christmas posts have to be one of my favourite posts to read! I know some people think it’s bragging, but it’s most definitely not and I know this is a bit late, but better late than never, huh?! If you wrote one of these posts, please leave a link in the comments!
This Christmas was a quiet one which was nice after such a hectic, emotional year. I didn’t get as many presents as I normally would, but as we all know, that’s just all part of getting older! (Can I go back to being a kid, please?!) However, I appreciate every gift I did receive and it’s not all about presents but spending precious time with family too, having fun and eating too much!
Usually, I’d get a lot of makeup related gifts but surprisingly this year, I only ended up with one! Haha. The Benefit Besties Gift Set was on my list and my lovely Mum got it for me. It includes six deluxe mini versions of Benefit’s bestsellers such as Hoola, Gimme Brow and They’re Real. It also contains a makeup bag, tips and tricks booklet and £5 worth of Boots Advantage points when you purchase any full-size Benefit bestseller product. It’s a really lovely gift and I’m glad I’m finally able to give Hoola a try!
My Mum also got me another bottle of my favourite perfume, Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. I received my first bottle for Christmas 2 years ago and it started to run low just before Christmas. Perfect timing! I just adore this scent.
Last Christmas, my best friend bought me a Pandora bracelet, so inevitably I got two new charms for Christmas this year! I got the Jolly Father Christmas charm and the Christmas Kitten Charm. They are both so cute.
Other bits that were on my list were a Cinematic Light Box mainly as a blog photo prop although it is a nice addition to my shelf! Yankee Candles were also on the list, I received the Holiday Party 5 Votives Gift Set which contains 5 votives and they all smell incredible! I am currently burning Red Apple Wreath, it’s sooo good.
If you know me then you’ll know about my obsession with The Walking Dead. Whenever I get obsessed with a TV show, it kind of becomes a tradition for me to get the DVD every year, so this year I received the Season 6 DVD, can’t wait to have a re-watch!
As well as buying me the Jolly Father Christmas charm, my best friend also got me some other wonderful presents! She got me two Lush items, the re-useable Magic of Christmas bubble bar and the Father Christmas bath bomb. I haven’t got round to using them yet but as you can imagine, they smell amazing!
Lastly, she got us both a Spa Day at the Clifford Day Spa in Nottingham. I’m so excited, I’ve always wanted to go on a spa day! God knows I need it after all the stress and worry I’ve gone through recently. We’re hoping to go at Easter, I can’t wait!
