Sorry this is such a late post, it should have been completed ages ago. It almost got to the stage of 'Is there any point in uploading it?' Well I can tell you the answer is yes becuase I have been so excited about this post and sharing with your all the lovely gifts I recieved at Christmas this year. I have been watching You Tube videos of this and I really enjoy having a nose at what other people got. I am also in the progress of uploading my own YouTube video :) However I think that it's a shame that people have to announce that they are extemly gratefull and that they are by no means bragging just to ensure that viewers don't write nasty comments. Everyone will be gratefull for their gifts and the only reason that they are showing their gifts on You Tube or their blog is becuase they are so happy with their gifts that they want to share them with you, and the majority of the time they are asked to make the videos becuase the viewers have asked them. I hope that all made sense to you guys haha.
Anyway I'm going to start with my Christmas Gifts.
Starting with some girlfriends from Uni. They got me some lovely, girlie gifts that are so well suited to me! I got a candle which smells of Cinnamon i.e AMAZING! and it is huge. Then i got a Radox shower set which again smells really nice. It comes with a shower scrub and wash which work well together. There are also two little tea lights that come with it which are great for lighting around the bathroom whilst having a relaxing soak in the tub. Finally I got this gorgeous, flower patterned dish which is so pretty and looks lovely in my room. Some people would use it for a candle plate but I didn't want to get wax on it so that's why I use it for my jewellery.
This Christmas we went to Devon for the week so all the presents we had for each other had to be small enough to fit in our suitcases. I really failed on that and had to only bring half of everyones gifts, but we had another Christmas Day when we got back so we could do it all again :) From my parents I got some lovely items including a Top Shop & New Look gift card, Underwear,Pj's (a must have in our family at Christmas), Penguin Socks (again a must have in our family at Christmas),Thermal Tights and a Gok Wan gorgeous body set. I always get Gok and my sister always get Soap and Glory. The Gok products are simply Gorgeous! They smell amazing and if you use the shower gel and the body lotion/body butter, then the scent lasts all day!I would definitely recommend these products and they are great on sensitive skin!
We also got some chocolate coins but of course they were all gone by Boxing day haha.
My sister got me this beautiful Ted Baker Make Up Bag. I had been after one of these for ages! I originally wanted the plain one with the bow but after they brought out the sparkly one I didn't really want it however, when this print was released I knew that I had to have it and what do you know..... yay! I think it is really different and something that not everyone will have.
From my Auntie & Uncle this year both me and my sister got a lovely Benifit make up palette. It is absolutely amazing and if your looking for a new foundation then this is the one for you!! It is part of their flawless range and it really does wonders! The only issue I have is that I find the 'Porefessional' primer a little greasy and it has actually made my skin break out a little which is unusual for my skin. Does anyone else have these issues?
Alex really has spoilt me rotten this year!!I already knew what two of them were as he bought them with me. The first one was the Bunny Jumper from Top Shop and then the Soap and Glory 'Best of all'. The jumper is featured in my first video haul and I think the Soap and Glory speaks for itself really. WOWZAS! It was £60 but then reduced to £27 for 9 products! They are all great and smell amazing! If you can get your hands on them, don't think about it, just nab it before they are all gone!! As I didn't see him till New Years Eve, we both had to wait for our presents till then. To be honest I wasn't expecting anymore but the little gem that he is, bought me two more gifts. He got me the Calvin Harris CD which is great and also the Remington Hair Wand. I had asked for a specific Remington wand and given him the serial number but the shop he went to didn't have it so he picked this one up instead, which I actually prefer :)
From his parents and his sister I received Miranda Harts 'Is it just me' Book & JK Rowling's 'The Casual Vacancy'. Both of which I asked for and I can't wait to read them, problem is I don't know which one to read first!!
Caroline and family (they have been family friends since I was born) always get me lovely gifts as Christmas and this year I got an awesome mug from paperchase. Its huggee
I also received some money of my dads parents and my stepdads parents. I had some money left over from my birthday and I used that and part of my Christmas money to buy myself a new pandora charm for my bracelet
Another pressent that I got from my step brother was a trip out the Shard London which I am really nervous about ebcuase it is the tallest building in Europe. Eeeek!
So that is what I got for Christmas this year guys, I hope you enjoyed this post.
