What I Got For Christmas 2016

Hello everyone!

I cannot believe that Christmas is already over for another year. Today I am going to be sharing with you everything that I got for Christmas this year. I did one of these posts last year and you all seemed to love it, so I wanted to do the same this year. I got so many amazing things this year and I can't wait to share them all with you.

Starting with the bits and pieces I got from my friends. I have had my eyes on the Gabriella Primark range for a few months now, everything is just so pretty. I got a gorgeous canvas for my bedroom which says 'need more sleep' and has lots of purple, gold and black polka dots on it. I think that the little black cat totally sold it for me! I really love this range because the colour scheme matches my bedroom really well; purple, white and metallic. I am definitely going to be picking up a few more bits from the range, I absolutely love it!

I also got some smellies, as well as a gorgeous smelling hand cream from The Body Shop. I am always looking for hand creams and I also keep one in my handbag because my hands get really dry in the Winter months. The scent I got is Frosted Berries, and if you live near The Body Shop then you definitely need to have a smell. It's honestly one of the nicest scents that The Body Shop have ever done:)

I got tons of presents from my family as well as money. Most of the presents are beauty and makeup themed, so I am going to show you those first.

The first makeup item I got is the Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette, which is something that I have had on my wish list for AGES! I am absolutely in love with the palette and I've already used it a few times (including Christmas Day). I will be doing a full review of the palette if that is something you would like to see, but it's safe to say that it has definitely lived up to my expectations!


I also got one of the Benefit Cosmetics limited edition Christmas gifts. The one I got is the Dolly Darling set which contains a Porefessional Primer, Hoola Bronzer, Roller Lash Mascara and the Gimme Brow Gel. All of the products are full sized apart from the brow gel, and it's really great value for money in my opinion.


I got a few different pieces from LUSH too. I got the Father Christmas gift set which includes five different bath bombs; Golden Wonder, Father Christmas, Luxury Lush Pud, Northern Lights and Never Mind The Ballistics. I really like that you can re use the tin from this gift set. I'm currently storing some LUSH bits and pieces in it.


The other LUSH gift set I got is the Christmas Bathtime Favourites set. This set contains a few more products than the other gift set. Inside is Golden Wonder, Star Dust, Shoot For The Stars, Northern Lights, Mistletoe, Luxury Lush Pud, Butterbear, Father Christmas and Satsuma.


A few months ago I unfortunately cracked my No7 Illuminated Makeup Mirror which I use when applying my makeup because it gives the perfect amount of lighting. I finally have another one so I can do my makeup with a mirror which isn't broken:)

Real Techniques brushes are my absolute favourite makeup brushes. The Bold Metals collection is absolutely gorgeous and I am so happy with this set that I received. The bristles are super soft just like any other Real Techniques brush. And, of course, they look really pretty too!

I received lots of items from Zoella's beauty range and one item from the lifestyle range, so I am going to quickly talk through those now. The first set I received is the Bath Fizz Trio which consists of three gingerbread men shaped bath bombs, all of which smell like gingerbread. I also got the Gingerbread & Vanilla gift set. I absolutely love the scent of the Zoella Christmas range and I am all stocked up for the next few months! The final item from the beauty range is the Secret Scenta set which includes all four of the fragrances ever released from Zoella; all in mini form! From the lifestyle range I got the Homemade Treats Reed Diffuser and it smells amazing.





YSL Black Opium is my all time favourite fragrance I was ecstatic to receive a gift set; which even contains a tiny version of the perfume to put in my handbag:)


As well as all of the lovely gifts I've mentioned, I also got a few different beauty sets from Soap & Glory which I will insert pictures of.


The final few beauty related items I got are Victoria's Secret body mists. I love their body mists because they do a huge range of scents. I got the scents Love Spell and Mango Temptation, both of which I am obsessed with. As well as those sprays I got a new Tangle Teezer because I have had my other one for a VERY long time.


Onto non beauty related items... I got 6 Blu Rays because I love watching films. The ones I got are as follows: The BFG, Finding Dory, Joe & Caspar Hit The Road USA, The Secret Life Of Pets, Nine Lives and Bad Neighbours 2. I also got the third installment in the Zoella Girl Online series; Going Solo. I cannot wait to read my book and watch all of my films!


Finally, I got a personalised canvas which has lots of photos of my cats on. I absolutely love it and it will be taking pride of place on my bedroom wall:)

I hope that you enjoyed finding out what I got for Christmas. I would love for you to tell me in the comments what YOUR favourite Christmas presents were!
