What I Got For Christmas 2017

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas yesterday! I was deliberating whether or not to write this blog post for a while as I didn't want to appear as if I was 'bragging' in any way, but I really enjoy reading other peoples blog posts or watching their Youtube videos to see what they received for Christmas as I'm nosey, so I just thought I'd join in and share with you all the lovely things I fortunately received for Christmas this year. My lovely boyfriend Jack actually surprised me with two soft box lights this year so I guess part of the reason you are seeing this post is because I wanted to use them this afternoon and take some pictures!

I was really fortunate and received these three lovely gifts from Jack's mum: Stella & Dot earrings, which are so lovely and unique and went perfectly with my outfit yesterday, Vera Wang Lovestruck perfume which smells amazing and looks stunning on my dressing table- my mum has already commented on how she might have to copy me and buy it for herself! I also received this absolutely stunning Vietnamese silk, velvet black and navy scarf from the Silk Shack, which I am in love with. I have never seen anything like it before and it's completley different to anything I already own so she's done so well and thoroughly spoilt me!

I also received a lot of clothes, chocolates, money and other bits and bobs this year as well as a couple of makeup bits. I was gifted this lovely Ted Baker nail polish and lipstick gift-set which are both lovely nude shades. I received lots of nice little bits in my stocking off my parents, two of which were these M.A.C goodies which I am looking forward to trying: Selena Black Liquid Liner and Black Zoom Lash Mascara. We also did secret Santa in work and I received this print along with a few other bits and pieces which I am chuffed about, as people clearly know me very well haha!

Jack absolutely spoilt me this year with the Real Techniques Miracle Cleansing sponge above, along with lots of other makeup pieces, a Stranger Things hoodie, these pink Adidas Gazelle Trainers which I asked for, the UE boom box speaker in 'cashmere pink' (below) which is amazing, as well as a case for it, and a portable phone charger which I am in dire need of as my iPhone battery is shocking! Like I mentioned before, Jack also gifted me two soft box lights to use for taking blog post pictures which I'm still in shock about how he thought of that and knew what to get! My two lovely sisters who know me so well, bought me the Benefit 'Beauty & the Bay' set which contains four, full sized benefit goodies: The 'They're Real' mascara, Hoola Bronzer, highlighter and eyebrow pencil!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and reading about what I got for Christmas this year! As I'm getting older, I'm finding that I'm more excited and focused on giving people their presents that I have gifted them, as opposed to receiving presents myself, so when I do receive my presents, I feel so grateful and humble about each and every one, as it sounds silly but I forget that I am actually going to receive presents myself!!

Let me know what you got for Christmas this year in the comments below!
I hope everyone has a lovely rest of the week and I'll see you, as usual this Sunday for my 2017 reflections post!
