What I Got For Christmas 2015.



What I Got For Christmas 2015.

Every year the big debate comes to question as to whether people should share their christmas gifts or not. Now, I am one of those who enjoy reading these posts. And I decided instead of sharing every single gift, I'd share the gift's that would be seen on my blog throughout 2016. I call this, the 'What I Got For Christmas, Beauty Bloggers Edition'...I'm extremely grateful for ever gift I received this year, the amount of cosy jumpers, pj's, hot water bottles and blanket I received, I'm going to be comfortable for the next 12 months! However I was lucky enough to get some amazing beauty products and I know you'd all love to take a peak. 
I'm in no form bragging about my gifts, simply sharing my make-up and beauty gifts with those who just want to be nosey!? 

joules; brilliant bath fizzers. 
These are adorable! I can't wait for the invention of smell-vison. No, seriously? These are the most amazing scent I've smelt in a long time. So floral but so soft, I've seen this brand around but never tried them. So I'm very grateful to my friend from work for these, just urgh I can't wait to get them into my next bath!? 

l'oreal; colour riche - jungle jade. 
Another gift from a work friend, my secret santa did AMAZING! Not only did she buy me this beautiful little palette -with the nicest mix of smokey grey, greens and soft pink. She also brought me a microwavable teddy, which has been useful already. 

no7; intense volume. 
Being in the older catergory in my family, presents are really given anymore. Thankfully my family still give 'token' presents and received this mascara from my aunt. My family don't really know my love for makeup, but just to have this from her was the kindest gesture, and it's a pretty good mascara too.

mac; navy times nine palette & m.a.c red. 
My brother is adorable, don't let him know that though!? He spent the weekend in London in December and spent some of his weekend break finding ME a present!! Obviously his girlfriend helped him out, but he bought me the most gorgeous red lipstick and some beautiful navy smokey shades. I can't wait to use both of these for many upcoming posts. 

urban decay; naked smokey palette. 
Insert heart eye emojis *here*. ohmagarddd! Boy did good and all that, if one set of high end makeup wasn't enough. My boyfriend surprised on Christmas evening with my presents, and WOW I finally got my hands on a naked palette and the smokey one too! It's honestly too beautiful that I haven't touched it yet, but I'm just. in. love! (Keep an eye out for this in posts too).  

lush; snow fairy's castle. 
Tom continued to do good with my presents this year. Lush has become my obsession over the last year and if I have a favourite scent, it's snow fairy. So to receive; Snow Fairy shower gel, Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar, So White Bath Bomb & Fairy Dust Dusting Powder. I've already got about 3 bottles of snow fairy, but I needed more! I also held back on buying too much from lush this year so I hadn't tired any of the products. I'm more excited that I'm admitting about this gift box. 

bodyshop; shea body butter. 
Tom really took note of my obsession with beauty products, he picked these completely on his own and he actually picked him my favourite scent. So these are heading straight into the bathroom ready for my next shower!? 

lush; baked Alaska, butterbear & the experimenter. 
During my brothers trip to London, him and his girlfriend also took a trip to lush (I'm envious). Both knowing how much I love the store, his girlfriend brought me 3 amazing products from the Oxford Street store. Baked Alaska, is like my ultimate favourite soap from their christmas range. Butterbear has always been a bath bomb I've wanted to try but never have and the experimenter is full of beautiful colours and leaves me body feeling incredibly soft. 

sony hx90. 
Back in October before our trip to Paris, me and Tom went halves for my camera. I'd been eyeing one up since the beginning of 2014. In the new year I'm going to do a little post about this camera, as it's been a few months now and I'm finally understanding the settings a little more. It's been in my bag for every occasion since it's purchase and already taken lots of well wanted memories. 

iphone lens kit. 
A new little gadget that will take home in my purse, a detachable lens that helps me take macro, wide angle and fish-eye effect photos. Being as I take all the photos when out with friends I'm pretty sure that this will be used for thousands of photos in the next year or so. 

purse & bag. 
I take inspiration from Lily Melrose for this one. For the last few years I've followed Lily but for the last few months I've really been inspired by her style, blog and videos. One video featured this beautiful bag and I was desperate for a high quality one. I don't think I'll stop using this bag for a long time now. 

And there you have it! My beauty gifts from Christmas 2015. It's incredibly grateful that my family and friends took the time to consider these presents for me. I'm obsessed and can't wait to get all the beauty products used, practice the perfect smokey eye with these palettes and take all the pretty photos with my camera and gadgets! 
I hope you all had the most wonderful christmas and you were treated the way you deserved! I'd love to hear what gifts you received this year.
