Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are now looking forward to welcoming in the New Year. I have had a lovely couple of days with my family and boyfriend and I am now so sad it's all over for another year!
I am really enjoying reading blog posts/watching haul videos on what everyone's got for Christmas this year so I thought I would put together my own before I start putting my gifts away in their new homes. I shouldn't really have to pop a disclaimer in here but it goes without saying that I am in no way bragging about the gifts I've received this year. I am genuinely very grateful for every gift I have received from the special people in my life. I thought I would share with you what I got and if you're nosey like me; you'll be super excited to read this post!
I was very excited to receive some high-end makeup for Christmas that I would never have otherwise. Makeup is something that I do really enjoying using but not something I necessarily splurge on or even buy regularly so I am so grateful for everything I got! I've always been intrigued by Smashbox products so I am super excited about their 3-in-1 #ShapeMatters palette which has shades for the cheeks, eyes and brows. My parents also picked me up a L'Oreal eye palette which has similar shades to the Naked palette. It's also a travel exclusive so I feel really lucky!
I got these super cute ricochet lace up boots by ASOS from my boyfriend's family. They have pom pom's on the laces which I just love!
I got a whole load of skin care and smelly stuff which I am always thankful for as it always seems to last me the whole year! I am also stocked up on a few bath bombs from Lush which is always very exciting...
A few blogging related gifts include a leather macbook sleeve from Josh which I have been lusting over since we saw a super nice on in an Italian leather shop on holiday... but I couldn't justify the prices over there! It has a cute business cards slot inside so makes it so much easier when I am on the go between meetings and coffee shops.
I also got a brand new yearly blog planner which will hopefully see me being a little more organised with my blog (December has been so stressful!). I am really excited to start using it.
Caroline Flack's autobiography has been on my wish list since she released it so I can't wait to snuggle up in the evenings and read it.
I got a whole load of the usual pyjamas, socks and underwear but my personal favourites are these leopard print DKNY pyjamas from my parents which I can see now will be my morning blogging attire!
Finally, I got two new pairs of trainers from Josh which again have been on my wish list for absolutely ages. I have had a pair of Nike Thea's before but unfortunately lost them (long story but it doesn't contain alcohol) so I'm chuffed to have another pair in my life!
And that's mostly everything that I got! A huge(eee) thank you to all my family and Josh for everything. I am so lucky and hope they loved their presents from me as much as I love theirs!
I am now off to work on my brand new blog design for the new year. Yep, ANOTHER new one. I love this blog design but there's certain aspects of it that I don't like so change is in order. I hope you're excited! I plan to change quite a lot of things in 2016 including my content so stay tuned!
