What I Got For Christmas

Hello! I absolutely love reading other people's 'What I got for Christmas' posts and quite a few of you asked me to write this post so here it is!

I uploaded a video the other day of my favourite Christmas presents where I talk a little bit more in detail about some of these presents, so you can click here to watch that. This post wont go into much detail about each product otherwise it may be too long, but feel free to leave a comment below if you would like a review on anything once I have used it a little bit more.


Soap and Glory Clean On Me shower cream - My favourite shower gel!

Soap and Glory Small Wonders set - I think Soap and Glory is my favourite brand for body products so I love this!

Avon Far Away Perfume - A lovely, long lasting perfume which is great for everyday as it's not very expensive!

YSL Manifesto perfume and purse spray - Possibly my new favourite perfume. It smells amazing and lasts an unbelievably long time.

Georgio Armani Miniature Fragrance Collection - I haven't tried these yet but I have smelt Armani Code before and loved it so I am excited to try these all.


Enrapture Totem Styler - I have only used this once so far and it was so good! It created gorgeous loose waves/curls which lasted all day with no hairspray!

Babyliss Big Hair - This is my favourite gift this year! I am thinking of doing a review or tutorial on Youtube so please let me know if you would like that! UPDATE - Tutorial here!

Macadamia Get Hooked set - I have only used the hair oil out of this so far and it was incredible. I am definitely considering buying the full size and am very excited to try the mask!


Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm Duo - These lip balms are lovely and the colours are gorgeous! The colours are Hibicus and Red Dahlia. I am actually giving the pink set away in my 500 follower giveaway!

YSL Rouge Volupte in Rose Caresses, 9 - This colour is gorgeous and the perfect everyday colour. I may have a review of this soon!

Rimmel blush in Santa Rose - This is also in my 500 follower giveaway! It is the perfect shade for me - it warms up my cheeks and looks very natural.

Stila Convertible Colour in Lilium - This was a surprise present that I pointed out to mum but had no idea she bought it for me! The colour is beautiful and  it blends amazingly well.

Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch - I really like under eye concealer/highlighters and this one is amazing.


Urban Outfitters skirt - I was wearing this in my Christmas Day Outfit post if you would like to see it on!

Marks and Spencer floral scarf - This scarf is beautiful and I have been wearing it most days since Christmas.

Martine Wester bracelet - This was also in my Christmas Day Outfit post and it is very pretty. I have been wearing it everyday.

Clarks Chelsea boots - These boots are the comfiest boots I own! I was also wearing these in my Christmas Day Outfit post so you can see them on there.


Revlon Illuminated mirror - I haven't used this properly yet but I turned it on the other day and it looks like it will help amazingly well when I am applying makeup.

Ted Baker makeup bag - I love this little makeup bag! It is gorgeous and inside has a section for makeup brushes!

Cath Kidston mug - I love Cath Kidston products with all the floral, pretty designs.

What To Expect When You're Expecting DVD - I really enjoyed this film!

Real Techniques Starter Set - I have used about three of these brushes so far and they are all very good and soft.

Rae Morris Makeup The Ultimate Guide - Amazing! I absolutely love this book and I read about half of it on Christmas day!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year! I posted my New Years resolution the other day which you can read here! Let me know below your favourite Christmas presents and don't forget you can watch my video here if you would like to hear me go into more information about some of these products!
