What I Got For Christmas 2015

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope Santa was good to you all and you had a wonderful time eating and drinking with family/friends. I've been so lazy over the Christmas period and I've loved every minute of it. I've put on roughly 10 stone and think I may need to check into AA due to my Prosecco addiction.

I was unsure as to whether I was going to write one of these posts but when I asked on Twitter, it turns out that you're all as nosey as I am when it comes to other people's Christmas gifts so here we are. Obviously, this post has to start with a disclaimer to let you all know that I am in no way bragging about the gifts I received. I'm grateful for every single one of them. My family and I like to treat each other at this time of year so we do tend to go all out. Here's what I got:
Kindle Paperwhite- I was so happy when I opened this present, I left my last Kindle in New York and was totally devastated. I love reading and felt a little bit lost without it. I've already downloaded lots of books to read to make up for lost time! I'll be sure to be more careful with this one and not let it out of my sight!

Yankee Candle Set - alllllllll the smells!! I was tempted to rip open the box and burn them all at once but then decided that might be a little too overpowering. Such a perfect gift for candle lovers (who doesn't love candles?!). My particular favourites are Christmas Cookie and Cranberry Ice.

Pandora Earrings- my Mum bought me these beautiful earrings to go with the Pandora statement ring that I posted about here. I've worn these every day since I got them and they're absolutely stunning.

Neal's Yard Organic Defence Spray, Ginger & Vanilla Bath and Shower Gel & Bee Lovely Busy Bee Balm - I've loved Neal's Yard as a brand this year and have been so impressed with the products they have to offer. I've built up quite an impressive collection so really happy I have 3 more things to add to it!
 
Jimmy Choo & YSL Black Opium Perfume - my two favourite perfumes which I had just run out of (someone was obviously paying great attention this year!). I'm really into sweet, girly perfumes so these are just perfect. I think I'm on my 4th/5th bottle of both now.

Benefit They're Real Mascara - got to love my Mum, I was having a Benefit makeover in Manchester and as she was waiting for me at the counter, she felt obliged to buy something. Luckily, this mascara is one of my favourites so the 'obligation to buy' thing turned out pretty well.

Bare Minerals Glow All The Way Set- my manager bought me this as half a Christmas present and half a 'thank you for your hard work this year' present. I'm looking forward to trying this little set as I've never tried anything from the Bare Minerals brand before but I've heard great things.
 
 
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Set - I'm a pretty helpful person when it comes to gifts - I received a Liz Earle Christmas brochure through the post and accidentally stuck very obvious post-it notes on the pages with 'I love this' and 'this would be a perfect Christmas present'.  It obviously worked as I received my beloved Cleanse & Polish and the Limited Edition Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Sweet Orange & Mint. The orange and mint is equally as beautiful as the original and smells as gorgeous as it sounds.

Champneys Hand Cream - I received this in my stocking and it's such a great hand cream. I've been using it daily already and it's ideal for your handbag. It's one of them hand creams that soaks in so well and leaves you with the softest hands.

Molton Brown Hand Cream Set - love this gift from my sister. She had the amazing idea of buying me a 3 month Love Me Beauty box subscription (can't wait to receive my first box) and then I was overly spoilt with this set of 3 gorgeous hand creams. I'd definitely recommend these if you can get hold of them in the sale!

 
I'm so pleased with all of my gifts and I've been very lucky as usual....my Mum also bought my sister and I tickets to Harry Potter Studios which I am SO excited about - I've wanted to go for so long and really pleased to have something to look forward to already in 2016!

What did you all get for Christmas?! Let me know in my comments below...leave me any links to your 'What I Got For Christmas' posts :)

  3. You got some lovely gifts, lucky girl! I was tempted to get myself a Kindle but I just don't know how I would find it compared to reading proper books, do you prefer it? Can't believe you got Harry Potter tickets, eeee, I think I would have passed out if I'd been bought those haha. Hope you had a lovely day! x

    1. Ahh Megan, I was exactly the same...my Mum kept asking me if I wanted one for my Christmas/birthday etc but I was adamant I loved books too much. It's just so convenient though and I absolutely love it! I think you need one ;) xx

  8. Ahh those Yankee Candles are everything! I got a bunch of them for my birthday last year, it's a wonderful feeling to be unwinding at the end of a long day with a warm cup of tea and some candles burning in the background :-)
