What I got for Christmas/Birthday
For some of you that don’t know, it was my Birthday on Christmas Day as well as the big event itself and I was so spoilt and love everything I was gifted! So I thought I would share with you what I was kindly given for both of these occasions as I don’t know about you, but I love being nosy and seeing what people have received.
From my Fiance – Mike, I was bought the YSL Black Opium Fragrance and the Eyes and Lips gift sets from Ted Baker which are absolutely gorgeous! His parents kindly gave me a gift card for Boots which I used to purchase the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation which is my first ever high end foundation and I love it! Also, my parents bought me the Remington Curl Revolution which is such a fun way to curl your hair as the entire barrel rotates, so you don’t have to wrap your hair around it and risk burning your fingers!
Mike also bought me this beautiful Elsa ornament which I am so in love with and is so well made! This year he finally gave in and watched Frozen with me on Christmas Eve after bugging him for ages.
Now this bad boy was difficult to fit all in the picture but my parents bought me a pale pink makeup case to store my nail varnish collection in as I have so many now and would be great to keep them all in one place and with this case I can carry it from room to room with ease!
My friend Kim bought me a cute Christmas gift set with a pair of mittens and hand cream which I cannot wait to use and she also got me an Orange Blossom and Neroli body set which was so lovely of here. There also was a bag of Maltesers in with them but they didn’t last very long in this house! My parents got me an adorable cat glass mug which is super fragile and I can definitely see my drinking milk out of this. Also, my friend from work – April bought me a Costa gift set which includes Ginger Biscuits, sprinkler and stencil along with a Costa mug! Funny story is, that I actually bought her the same thing for Christmas as we are both obsessed with Costa. Great minds think alike eh?
Mike also bought me some Bluetooth headphones as when he is not around I like to dance around like a loon with my earphones in but I always get caught up in the wires and end up ripping the earphones out which gets annoying! So I am looking forward to being able to do this without getting tangled. Also, my parents bought me a Metal Spinner to help me practice my spins off ice. I love how this spinner simulates the feeling of spinning on the ice and also allows you to practice your weight distribution along with body position to perfect them spins. Watch out 2017, I’ll be a pro spinner before you know it!
I was also bought these gorgeous Pandora charms, every since I was bought the bracelet for my 18th Birthday, they have bought me a charm every year and considering I have now had this for 4 years I have got quite the collection! Mike bought me the one the left which is super sparkly and gorgeous and my parents bought me the Daughter one on the right which has a beautiful pink heart at the bottom. I swear this photo doesn’t do these charms justice as they are absolutely gorgeous.
And last but not least my parents bought me a Barry M Nail Polish Gift Set and the Zoella Christmas Crackers. Which I was super excited about as I love Barry M and I have always wanted to try the Zoella Christmas range! And Mike bought me a gorgeous Ted Baker Nail Polish Gift Set and the Victoria’s Secret Love Addict Gift Set. Recently I have been going through a VS addiction so I was super excited to receive these from my other half.
Well that’s it guys! I love all of the presents I received and am so grateful to have such generous friends and family!
