Can you tell I'm still in a festive mood? I don't want to let Christmas go just yet, so to drag it out as much as I possibly can before thinking about New Years which is literally a few days away, I thought I'd share what goodies had my name under the tree this year. Yes I know, Christmas isn't all about gifts but who can say no such things? I confess I did receive these a few days before and after Christmas which is why this post may be a little late but who's counting. I honestly love every single one so I couldn't not share them.
Gifts I bought for myself: on a recent trip to Kiko with Georgiana from beautynerd.co.uk, I picked up the Colour Sphere Eyeshadow 05 Spicy Chocolate Special FX which I am planning on wearing on New Year's Eve as it has just enough sparkles making it more than appropriate for party season. On the same day, we simply had to pop into MAC and I of course walked out with the gorgeous Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter I've been dreaming of for as long as I can remember. Also from MAC, mum got me the famous Flat Out Fabulous Matte Lipstick which is admittedly a more spring/summery shade but I haven't been able to stop wearing it ever since. And last but most certainly not least, the one and only Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette; daddy really knows the way to my heart!
Both The Night Before Christmas set from Lush and Sweet Snuggles Bathing Set were given to me by Georgiana and honestly, everything smells so wonderful and looks so pretty I just want to keep everything in its box. Am I the only one who takes forever to actually use any cute stuff?! Clearly, Lush was a popular choice for me this year, perhaps because I've been saying I want to try more of their goodies, as the Candy Mountain Bubble Bar and the Frozen Bath Bomb were also sitting under my tree. I can't wait to unwind and give these a try, they certainly smell delicious and I'm sure they will come perfectly in handy for a bit of me time.
Hints to the boyfriend seriously work guys. I've been very nonchalantly (may I add) hinting to him that I would quite like a designer bag for my birthday, but instead he got me one for Christmas and I have fallen more in love with him and it! Michael Kors handbags are a dream and I couldn't have asked for a better one given it is not a design you see on the street every day, making it unique and thus ideal for me. And to jump head to toes - literally- onto the rose gold bandwagon, mum read my mind and got me these gorgeous Rose Gold Superga Shoes. They are so right for party season; I've been wanting these for a little while as I find them the easiest way to step up any outfit so expect to see them lots on the blog in the upcoming year.
What did you get for Christmas beauties? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading and have an awesome week ahead!
