Christmas Haul!

Hey guys! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas or if you don’t celebrate Christmas I hope you had a lovely day too! I had a great couple of days spent with my family! Christmas for me is all about spending time with my family playing board games and just having a jolly good time! The classic games always come out like charades, the name game, trivial pursuit etc.. We played all of these this year along with the chocolate game, which is just a really funny/silly game where you have to roll a six, put on the hat scarf and gloves and try and cut a square of chocolate before someone else rolls a six! It always gets very loud and competitive when we play this. What’s your favourite board game? (Mine is actually Monopoly but we didn’t get round to playing it this year)

I have been very lucky this year and got a lot of presents! I love every single one of them but I am just going to show you a few in this post. I would just like to say before I start I am not bragging in any way I just want to share these things with you because most of them are beauty related and that’s what this blog is about so lets get to it!



So I don’t know if I have ever said this on here but I do like to bake and my favourite baker/cook is Mary Berry! Her recipes are so simple to follow and they always taste amazing, even when I make it! She is just one of the cutest women I have ever seen and I already have a few of her cook books so when I opened this one I was over the moon! This book isn’t just for baking it has everything in so you could make a 3 course meal! I am going to make something from here pretty soon and I think I might put it on my blog so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I also got this amazing notebook. I am pretty sure I have mentioned this before but incase you missed it I am a huge Harry Potter fan! I got this notebook from my boyfriend and I am going to use it to put all my blog post ideas and things in! The wand attached to the side is actually a pencil – how cool is that! πŸ™‚

So now onto beauty! I got this Lush hand cream from my gran. I have never tried a hand cream from Lush before so I am very excited to use this. Its called ‘Helping Hands’Β and it says on the pot ‘A nurturing almond, cocoa butter and chamomile hand cream to give back some of what life and washing has taken out’. I cant wait to try it because, especially round this time of year, my hands get very dry. I will be doing a full post on this very soon!

Another thing I got from Santa (my amazing parents) is the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick – Pink Quartz. I can’t tell you how long I have wanted this and how many times I have been stood at the Bobbi Brown counter in Selfridges very nearly buying it so I was very excited when I opened this on Christmas morning! I have already used it and I love it but I will do a full post about it soon.

The last two things are also beauty and they are both from Charlotte Tilbury! These are my first Charlotte Tilbury products and I love them both! My boyfriend got me these because he is the best and when he asked me what I wanted I fluttered my eyelashes, said pretty please and saved them as a favourite on his laptop! πŸ˜€ I got a lipstick in the shade ‘Nude Kate’ I haven’t tried this yet because my lips are very dry and sore from the cold weather but when I do try it I will let you know what I think. I also got the Cheek to Chic blush in ‘First Love’ which I have tried and I love! A full review on this will also come very soon!


Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick – Nude Kate

So there we have it. I have been so lucky this year and I am very grateful for all of my gifts! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and have a brilliant New Year! What did you get this year?

See you soon!
