What I Got For Christmas 2017

Hello everyone!

Christmas is over for another year and that means only one thing; it's time to share all of the lovely gifts I received this year! Without further ado, in no particular order, here is my what I got for Christmas 2017:)




Anastasia Beverly Hills Light/Medium Contour Kit:
The first gift I received is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, which is something that I have been wanting for the longest time ever. I love trying out new makeup, contour palettes especially, and I can't wait to get tons of use from this one. I did use one of the contour shades on Christmas Day and it was very buttery, pigmented and easy to blend, so I am looking forward to testing the palette out even further. 



Charlotte Says:
Frozen Charlotte was definitely one of my favourite books which I read this year, I just couldn't put it down! I am so excited to start reading the next book of the series and I will definitely let you all know what I think of it. 

Sterling Silver Four Leaf Clover Earrings:
You can never go wrong with a pair of earrings for Christmas, and these four leaf clover ones are so pretty. I only wear silver jewellery so these are perfect for me, I can't wait to wear them:)

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Posh Spice:
I love the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks and I have started to build up my collection, so it was only fitting that I received a cult classic. Posh Spice is one of the more popular Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks and I can certainly see why. The shade is very pretty and I can guarantee I will be getting a lot of use from it.

Kat Von D Lock It Foundation:
One of my favourite foundations of all time is the Kat Von D Lock It as it offers amazing coverage and lasts really well on my skin. I am always pleased when I receive this foundation as I can never have enough of it, and my current bottle is almost finished!

Kat Von D Lock It Concealer:
To go alongside the foundation, I also received the Lock It concealer. This is something which I have never tried before but if it is anything like the foundation then I will love it. I have read a few reviews and they all said that it has lovely coverage and lasts well. I will definitely keep you updated and mention it in a 'Currently Loving' post if I enjoy it, which I'm sure I will:)

Kat Von D Bow N Arrow Duo:
You can never have enough makeup! I also received this lovely Kat Von D Bow N Arrow duo which includes a miniature Tattoo Liner and miniature Everlasting Lipstick in the shade Bow N Arrow. Bow N Arrow is the perfect nude everyday shade for me and from swatching it it feels creamy and looks very pigmented.

LUSH Christmas Candy Box:
It's definitely not Christmas without a LUSH gift set, or two! The first gift set which I got this year is the Christmas Candy Box. I love sweet scents so this is the perfect set for me. Inside you get a Snow Fairy Shower Gel, Rock Star Soap, Candy Mountain Bubble Bar and Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb. 

LUSH Christmas Bathtime Favourites:
The other gift set I received from LUSH this year is called Christmas Bathtime Favourites. I got this set last year two and I absolutely love it as it's filled with 9 gorgeous scented bath bombs including Luxury Lush Pud, Golden Wonder, Sherbet Dip, Shoot For The Stars and Never Mind The Ballistics. 

Nivea Hydrated Skin Gift Set:
I love receiving smellies for Christmas as it means I am stocked up and won't need to purchase any for a while. This Nivea set is perfect for my Winter skin as they are all very moisturising products. I love the Nivea lip balms as they are really nourishing on the lips, and the moisturiser and hand cream feel amazing on my skin too. 


Remington Hairdryer Set:
I love this Remington hairdryer set. Purple is my favourite colour so I love the hairdryer, and it also comes alongside a bag, backcombing brush, two hair clips and a compact mirror. 

Real Techniques Sponge Set:
I only ever use Real Techniques sponges to apply my makeup so I was delighted to receive a sponge set which contains two of the Miracle Complexion sponges, a Miracle Sculpting sponge and three Miracle Mini sponges. I love the feeling of a new makeup sponge so I am looking forward to breaking these out of the packaging. 

Soap & Glory Pick & Spritz Set:
I love a goo Soap & Glory gift set and this one, which I received from my sister, is great as it contains 6 miniature items. There are three miniature body sprays and three corresponding miniature body washes too. I love a good Soap & Glory gift set!

Soap & Glory Lip Lip Hooray Lip Trio:
Also off my sister, I received a little Soap & Glory tin which includes three lip products. There are two glossy lip products and one matte lip product. I have already used the lightest nude glossy lip crayon and it is really pretty. I can't wait to see how the other two shades look on me. 


Sanctuary Spa Travel Treats:
Staying along the line of smellies, I received this Sanctuary Spa set from my grandparents. It has some miniature products in it which, as the name suggests, are perfect for travel. The bag is a really pretty rose gold colour and it will definitely come in handy too. 

Shawn Mendes Fragrance:
It's no secret that I love Shawn Mendes so I was super excited to receive his fragrance. The fragrance is actually unisex, which I think is a great idea, and it also smells really lovely. I never really expect much from celebrity fragrances but this is definitely going to be one that I repurchase as I love the scent a lot. 

YSL Black Opium:
I also received the YSL Black Opium, which is something that I receive every year for Christmas. This is such a luxury perfume and I received a huge 90ml bottle so it should last me a fair while. The scent is very sweet, which is exactly what I like, and I always get complemented when I wear it. 

Zoella JOT Journal:
The last 6 items in this post are all from Zoella's beauty and lifestyle ranges- can you tell that I am a big fan?! The first Zoella item I got is the JOT journal from her lifestyle range. I am loving the lifestyle packaging this year. The journal is almost too pretty to write in but I will definitely be noting down blog post ideas in it. 

Zoella All Four You Set:
The All Four You miniature fragrance set is something that I also received last year. I don't know what it is, but I absolutely love anything that's miniature! You get four fragrances in the set; Blissful Mistful, Snow'ella, Bake My Day and Gelat'eau. These are the perfect size to pop in your handbag, as are the fragrances I am going to be talking about in a little while. 

Zoella Christmas Cookie Reed Diffuser:
Who doesn't love a good reed diffuser?! I put this in my room on Christmas Day and after a few hours my room smelt incredible. Christmas Cookie is a lovely sweet gingerbread scent. It's designed for Christmas time but I can definitely see myself using this all through the year. I definitely recommend the Zoella reed diffusers in general as they last for ages! 

Zoella We're On A Roll Set:
The other Zoella fragrance set I received contains three rollerball fragrances. Like I mentioned earlier, these are also perfect for throwing in your handbag or taking on holiday as they are really sleek and definitely don't take up as much room as a regular perfume bottle. 

Zoella Stationery Bento Box:
Another item from the Zoella lifestyle range is the Stationery Bento Box. I love anything stationery related, but especially when it's as aesthetically pleasing as this! The box also came in really handy as I am now using it to organise my highlighters.

Zoella Treasure Me Set:
Last but not least, the final gift I received is the Zoella Treasure Me gift set. You get so many different bath and body products in this set, so I am definitely going to be taking a LOT of nice baths. The set includes everything from hand cream to bath milk powder. I love the box all of the products came in too, I will 100% be reusing it to store all of my pamper products. 


That was most of the gifts I received for Christmas this year. I did also receive money and some pyjamas but I didn't really think you would be interested in seeing those! If you have posted a 'What I Got For Christmas' then definitely leave a link in the comments section as I love reading them:)
