I can’t believe that Christmas is already over and we’re only a couple of days away from 2015; where has 2014 gone?!? I had a fab Christmas with my parents, my sister, my uncle and all my grandparents; it involved a lot of food, a lot of presents and a lot of games, like all the best Christmasses do! Thank you to everyone who bought me such lovely stuff this year – I’ve been so lucky!
Apparently some people don’t like these ‘What I Got For Christmas’ posts; but I love reading them, so I wanted to do my own. I’ve only included beauty related products however, so hopefully it won’t seem too much like I’m showing off!
From my parents…
Body Shop Strawberry Body Sorbet: This moisturizer looks and smells incredible. It’s a gorgeous pastel-pink colour, and makes your skin smell like strawberry ice cream!
Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine Shower Gel: If you read my BOTB perfume post, you’ll know that Indian Night Jasmine is one of my favourite body shop fragrances. And a girl can never have too much shower gel!
Body Shop ‘The Sparkler’ in Vanilla Brulee: I wanted one of these gorgeous shimmer sprays last year, but they were so popular that my local Body Shop had sold out. Finally I’ve got my hands on one! I love a bit of sparkle on my skin, and this one has a perfume puff for easy application; as well as a delicious vanilla scent!
Dior Diorific Golden Shock Lipstick in 005 Daring Shock: I just can’t get over the packaging for this one – so glam! One side is a dark velvet matte finish, and the other a lighter shade with a golden shimmer.
From my Grandma…
Soap & Glory ‘The Righteous Butter’ Body Lotion: The Righteous Butter is one of my favourite body moisturizers, so I’m really pleased with this BIG bottle!
Glamour Icons: Perfume Bottle Design by Marc Rosen: Anyone who knows me well will know I have a bit of an obsession for perfume bottles; so this book, by packaging hero Marc Rosen, is a bible to me! Absolutely love it.
From my sister…
Lush ‘Little Snow Fairy’ Gift Box
- Snow Fairy Limited Edition Shower Gel
- Pink Fun – 4-in-1 wash
I’m obsessed with all things Lush so I’m always super happy to be given lush goodies. Snow Fairy is a super-sweet and sugary pink shower gel they only bring out at Chritsmas. Fun is a body wash/shampoo/bubble bath with a playdough like texture so you can mould it into shapes!! And its Lush, so obviously they both smell uh-may-zing!
Lush Solid Perfume – Karma
I love the smell of this perfume, a spicy mix of orange and patchouli, and the scent sort of ‘matures’ and changes on your skin as the solid perfume melts – it’s such a delicious winter fragrance.
No7 Shimmer Dust Gift Box:
- Lash Impact Intense Volume Mascara – in Black
- High Shine Lip Gloss – in Glaze
- Youthful Eye Serum
- Stay Perfect Eye Shadow – from the Cappuccino Trio
This is a lovely little gift box of make-up essentials. I’d already been admiring my sister’s sparkly red mascara tube, and now I have my own. There’s also a lovely, dark pink, shimmery lip gloss and mushroomy-gold (that famous colour!), shimmery eyeshadow. And I know its completely crazy, because we’re only 18 and 20, but neither of us say no to a few anti-aging ingredients in a product – prevention is better than cure; and the earlier you start, the better!
I hope you all had a great Christmas too, and Happy New Year for Wednesday!! Please feel free to comment with any links to your Christmas gift posts, I’d love to see what you all got too.
