What I got for Christmas 2017
One type of post i absolutely love reading is what people got for their birthday’s and Christmas. So I thought I would do a post on what I received for Christmas this year. It’s also a great way for me to reflect back on what I got, I feel spoilt and so lucky for the gifts I received.
The first Christmas gift I opened this year was from my work Secret Santa, and they clearly know me well! I’m a massive Rick and Morty fan so they got me this Rick mug, I’m a huge tea drinker as well so I love it! It’s going to get used a lot.
The next gifts I received were from my best friend, we normally exchange presents a few days before Christmas and this year we swapped on Christmas eve. She bought me some Ivy park sliders which are unbelievably comfy. I’ve never owned sliders before and we are both the biggest Beyonce fans so I was incredibly excited when I opened these! A Ted baker body spray gift set, as you can see one is missing from the box as it went straight into my handbag, a gin and tonic lip balm which smells lush and lastly a gorgeous scarf from H&M. It is THE cosiest warmest scarf ever and it feels like I have a giant blanket wrapped around me every time I wear it.
Next up were gifts from my eldest sister and her Fiance and my nephews. I was in dire need of a new glasses case so was excited to open an Arsenal one, along with some wipes for the lenses as well. She also got me the rose gold tealight which I am in love with, it’s so blogger-esque!
These were the 2 glittery nail varnishes I got and they are gorgeous! They also bought me lots of other nail art bits which I am very excited to use, such as gems and tape.
One present I did ask for was silver studs as I am always losing mine and I don’t really own any studs that aren’t fake metal. I thought these knot ones were unique and lovely.
I also got a few hair bits and some cleansing wipes! One thing I did forget to photograph that I also got from my eldest sister was an NYX lid lingerie in the shade rose pearl, which is a gorgeous pale shimmer pink. I put it straight in my makeup bag as soon as I got it so I forgot to include it in the photos!
From my mum and step dad I was given 2 beautiful silver rings from a company called Essentials and some other little goodies. This included makeup bags, Nivea Lip Butters and a Dove body cream. I begged my mum to get me some chocolate this year as I never receive chocolate or sweets for Christmas and so this year she also got me some mint matchmakers. The pictures below show the 2 rings up close in more detail, please excuse my weather worn hands from working outside everyday! They really are pretty and I doubt they’re ever going to be off my fingers.
Finally are the gifts from my other Sister, her Fiance and my Nephew. In case you’re unaware I am a HUGE Batman fan so they got me some Batman Pajamas and a lego Batman glass. They also got me some fluffy socks, thermal socks and some underwear.
I got a charge and sync dock for my phone which is going to be SO useful, and this really pretty rose gold hanging light up heart! Both of my sisters got me something homely that’s rose gold, they clearly know me well!
Lastly I got lots of makeup bits which included pink and rose gold makeup brushes (heart eyes emoji). As well as a grey L’oreal nail varnish, an NYX lipstick, and a new real techniques miracle complexion sponge. I’m so happy about the sponge because mine is completely wrecked. Then finally an NYX Strobe of genius illuminating palette – How beautiful! There seems to be a running NYX and rose gold theme here but I love it!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed being nosy at what I got and had a lovely Christmas if you celebrate it! What gifts did you get this year that you were really thankful for?
