What I Got For Christmas 2016

I feel a bit funny about writing this post I’ve got to be honest. There’s a lot of negativity around them, but, I really enjoy seeing what everyone got for Christmas so maybe you fancy having a nosey at what I got too, so here I am sharing the lovely things that I got for Christmas. I’ve be absolutely spoiled by everyone this year and I couldn’t be more grateful, my family & friends are truly amazing.

Let’s get on with it anyway, here’s what I received for Christmas.

My Mum’s been going on at me all month about what makeup bits to get me because she had no idea where to start haha, but when I opened all these amazing presents, she definitely got it right. She told me she stuck to what she know’s I already like so she got me one of my favourite mascara’s ever, Lash Sensational, which is such good timing because I’m just about to run out. She also got me Maybelline’s Setting Spray & the Super Stay Better Skin Concealer. I also got the Maybelline’s Nudes Palette from my mum & my sister got me the Blushed Nudes Palette, I love them both already. Mum also got me 2 of the Younique products I was just about to run out of, the Mineral Touch Pressed Powder and Touch Glorious Primer. Then I was surprised with the gorgeous Moodstruck Addiction Palette 4 set which I cannot wait to use!

Beauty Bits: 
Since all my family know how beauty obsessed I am, they knew exactly what to get me. Mum always buys me a Soap & Glory set, this year she surprised me with the Take Your Pink Set with all my favourites in it. I also got the Paco Robanne Olympea that’s been on my wishlist for months, it smells beautiful! My Mr got me the Lush Volcano Foot Mask & Peppermint Foot Lotion, which he says he got me because I’m always asking for foot massages haha! & the gorgeous Barry M Ultimate Shine Collection. He also knows how much I love me some Victoria’s Secret body sprays so he got me, Magnetic, Aqua Kiss & my favourite, Love Spell and my sister got me Pure Seduction which is also a favourite. Stuart also remembered that I needed my Alien refilling so he also went and got that done for me.

Stuart also knows how much I love to read, and he’s clearly noticed how much I’m into Thrillers because this year I received 5!
The Secret by Katerina Diamond
Find Her by Lisa Gardner
Murder House by James Patterson & David Ellis
All Fall Down by Erica Spindler
& Local Girl Missing by Clair Douglas
I also love my dog books, any kind of dog books but my favourite are war dogs, I absolutely loved it’s All About Treo so I also received War Orphans by Lizzie Lane from my Mum.
I’ve already got stuck into The Secret & it’s sooo good.

Every year I get a box full of jewellery from everyone together. Everyone knows I’d prefer a few things from Primark compared to some £100 earrings, so they all grab a couple of things and put it together for me. Here are a few of the bits I got. My Mum also got me these gorgeous Ted Baker earrings because ‘she couldn’t help herself’ haha, I just love her.

I was absolutely spoiled with clothes this year from both my Mum & Stuart. I received quite a lot of pyjamas because I practically live in them so I’m very happy about that. I also got a quite a few tops and jumpers & a couple of pairs of jeans, which I now need to make room for because I own way too many clothes. They both tell me every year, your not having any more clothes next year haha.

I got 2 main presents this year. My mum completely surprised me with the Babyliss Heated Smoothing Brush that I am soo excited to use, I’ve been wanting this ever since it was released but never asked for it since I knew what my main present was.
My biggest present this year was from both my Mum & Stuart. My Asus laptop has been on it’s way out for months, so they both have been going on at me to find a new laptop that I wanted. When I was out shopping in the Black Friday sales I noticed the HP Pavilion x360 was on offer, I let them both know and they snapped it up. Wouldn’t let me have it till Christmas though. I absolutely love it, I literally don’t want to put it down. They also got me the new Sims 4 add ons to go with it, so now I’m back addicted to Sims too.

I also got way too much Chocolate from everyone and it’s going to take me till next Christmas to get through it all – I’m going to end up the size of a house!


From everyone else, I received some crafty bits, a few board games  (I am obsessed with board games) & bits and bobs.  We played Family Fortunes and Catch Phrase Christmas day and it was so funny. We are way too competitive in this family.

I’ve had an amazing Christmas and I’m so sad that’s it’s practically over. I’ve been absolutely spoilt and I’m so thankful to everyone. I can’t wait to try everything out and I will make sure to let you know how everything is!
