Little disclaimer: this is for nosey people like me! If you don't like these types of posts please scroll on. I really don't know if this is a lot or a little of presents as everyone does Christmas differently, my family really aren't big on extravagant gifts but I honestly feel so lucky and grateful this year. I knew I was getting the big present but I wasn't expecting a lot of the lovely extras I got!
My big main present isn't in the photos because I used it to take all of them! It's the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ200 Bridge Camera. I'm still getting to grips with it but I'm honestly so happy! If you're ready to graduate from a 'point-and-shoot' but don't know where to start with an SLR, this is the perfect blogging camera. The viewer also flips out and can turn 360 degrees so you can take a perfect selfie! I'll do a full post on it once I'm a little more confident with my skills.
I also got some lovely beauty bits. I can't wait to give all the shades in the Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spots set a go. I haven't ever had one of their boxed blushers so this is the perfect little starter kit for me.
I also got some Illamasqua goodies: the Nail Polish in Melange and Vintage Metallix in Embellish. I reckon I may have a dupe in my stash for the eyeshadow, so keep an eye out for that post!
It's been a long time coming but I finally have my hands on the stunning Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Quad! It's just beyond beautiful...Also from Charlotte Tilbury I have two of the Matte Revolution lipsticks: Bond Girl (a dark mauve) and Walk of Shame (a red berry stain).
I also got a lovely owl hot chocolate mug with fudge to go with it as well as some Hotel Chocolat.
I also got two candles! The lovely Yankee Candle Simply Home in Christmas Baking. It has a gorgeous gingerbread fragrance. Quite a different scent for me is the Rituals Sweet Sunrise Candle which is a really fresh, citric spa fragrance.
I also got my fair share of bath and body products. From Lush I got the Snow Angel Bath Melt, two people got me the Snow Fairy Shower Gel and the lovely new Hot Toddy Shower Gel. My mum also got me the Soap and Glory Next Big Thing, which is just amazing value for money - all that stuff for £29! I also got the Beauticology Gingerbread Bath House. So I was pretty spoilt for choice on what to use for my Christmas Day bath...
My boyfriend came up on Boxing Day. His family generously got me a load of Hotel Chocolat goodies, a Christmas Candle and an iTunes Voucher, which was just so lovely of them!
I also got some lovely stuff from Victoria's Secret. Nothing x-rated but it'd still be a bit weird to show my undies to the internet...it's just a few pairs of their cute panties.
So basically I'm going to smell fantastic but be really fat in 2015! Look out for lots of beauty reviews coming your way! I know some of these are gift sets but I'll still do a review because you can buy them individually. I've linked above everything I can!
Wow so lucky! The Hotel Chocolat stuff looks amazing! I love the colour of the Illamasqua nail polish you got as well. It is beaut! I hope you had a lovely Christmas! xReplyDelete
