Well! After weeks of preparation – shopping, cooking and decorating – Christmas Day has been and gone, and we’re all probably a few pounds heavier than we were this time last week! I hope you all had a wonderful time, celebrating in your chosen way with the people you love, and I hope Santa brought you everything you wished for. I personally had a great time! The highlight of Christmas for me is playing games and doing quizzes with my family, and they were definitely done in abundance.
Christmas isn’t just about the presents, but I got some really lovely fashion and beauty related things this year, so I thought I would share them with you today. I also got a lot of chocolate, baking equipment, geeky stuff (including a bat detector which I’ve been wanting for AGES) and books – my friends and relatives know me well!
So, here are some of my Christmas gifts. Apologies for the strange colouring in a few of the photographs… They were taken in bad lighting!
My dad bought me this absolutely beautiful sterling silver Bat Skull necklace. He mentioned that he got it from Etsy and it was handmade in New York by an obviously very talented maker. I instantly fell in love with it when I opened the box, and in my surprise I ended up dropping the box in my mug of tea, woops! I adore bats so I am going to treasure this piece.
I also love hares, so my dad gave me this large pewter moon hare pendant as well. Isn’t it stunning? I need to find a chain for this pronto so I can start wearing it.
The dinosaur at the top was from my sister, Rex from Toy Story was from my fiancé, and the owl was from my fiancé’s sister. Owls, dinosaurs and necklaces are a few of my favourite things, so I was very pleased to receive all three of these beauties.
I received three different perfumes this year, all of which are replacements for perfumes I already have. Cacharel’s Amor Amor (one of my all time favourites), Vera Wang Princess Night, and an Accessorize Gift Set.
I didn’t get much make up this year, but my cousin gave me 17’s Smoky Eye Palette and a few little 17 lip glosses. The red gloss is gorgeous! The guy at the bottom is a rather cute owl lip balm.
How amazing are these?! My fiancé’s sister gave me these Batman nail transfers. I was so excited when I opened them and I cannot wait to give them a go. Definitely expect a review of these soon.
This cat bag from my mum was one of my favourite gifts this year. It’s big and furry and very soft – it needs to stop raining now so I can use it!
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a scarf, gloves or socks, and this year I got all three. The scarf is purple with green skulls and is nice and light – ideal for spring. The socks have squirrels on them, one of my favourite animals, and the rainbow mitten gloves are SO SNUGGLY – win!
Not the best photo in the world but my mum got me a BATMAN ONESIE! Amazing, right? <3
A massive thank you to everyone who spoilt me this year, I am extremely grateful. Did you get anything fashion and beauty related for Christmas this year? I’d love to see your hauls too!
As my regular readers will know, yesterday was my 22nd birthday. I was very lucky and was really spoilt this year by my friends, family and OH and was given a lot of lovely gifts, as you can see below.
Amongst these presents I was given some lovely beauty products, including some which I had been lusting after for a while.
My OH gave me a Ghost Sweetheart gift set, to replace the one I got last year and have just finished!
My Mum bought me the Models Own Beetlejuice Box Set, which is just stunning, and came with a bonus free Models Own black kohl eyeliner.
My best friend gifted me the NEW Chocomania set from The Body Shop where she works, which I’m really looking forward to trying.
I also got Vera Wang’s new perfume, Princess Night, which came with a gorgeous bag, Lush Tuca Tuca Gorilla Perfume, as well as a face mask, body scrub and brush and a little pot of Boots mango cocoa butter.
Yesterday I decided to treat myself and bought Boots 17 Magnetized Nail Polish in Lilac with some of my birthday money, which I have already tested and will be writing about later on today!
I cannot wait to try out all these new things and review them all for you, and will start doing so tomorrow when I review Lush’s Tuca Tuca Gorilla Perfume.
Which of these things would you like to try?
Thanks for reading,
