What I Got For Christmas This Year

'What I got for Christmas' posts are some of my favourite blog posts to read at this time of the year; I love seeing how excited people get about the products they received and they give me some inspiration as to what I should treat myself to next. For the first time on this blog I wanted to share what I got, as I was so happy and overwhelmed by all of the amazing presents I received. 

Perfume was high up on my wishlist and I got both the Giorgio Armani Si and Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede, the latter being one that I've been wanting to repurchase for ages so I was very happy that it was in my stocking from Tom! With the scratch card money I won (yay!), I've decided I'm going to treat myself to the Byredo Mojave Ghost perfume

Missoma is a fairly recent discovery of mine, but I can already predict it'll become a dangerously expensive habit. The Lucy Williams Orb Hoop Earrings have caught my eye for some time and I'm super happy that I now own them as they look so cute when worn and they're simple enough to wear daily. 

For the house, I got given the Rifle Paper Co calendar that I've been lusting after for a while. I'm so glad I chose this one as I can't wait to photograph it each month like I did in 2017, plus as it's much bigger than my last one it's more of a statement piece in my kitchen. 

I always appreciate getting anything comedy-related at Christmas and I can't believe that I got tickets to see Joe Lycett in July because it's been an absolute dream of mine! I feel like I need to re-watch his dvd for the 100th time again. I also got the new Micky Flanagan DVD which has already been put on whilst we sat in new PJ's eating our Christmas chocolate. 

I got some amazing gifts from my friends Hannah and Fee from HannahHearts and MakeupSavvy. The Essie Couture Set has been on my nails all Christmas and I've been wearing my Kat Von D Lipstick non-stop too as they both have great longevity. Fee also got me a beautiful festive candle and this ASOS Cat Purse which is adorable. 

When I moved house I somehow managed to misplace my favourite scarf, and with the snow I was in dire need of a new one. I decided to ask for this ASOS Oversized offering and I'm so glad I did as it's so snuggly and warm. I also got surprised with some Harry Potter PJ's and a New Look bobble hat so I know I'm not going to be as cold this Winter. 

I didn't have many makeup items on my wishlist, but I'm so happy to receive the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge as I've been lusting after it for what seems like years now. Some beauty items I got were the Origins Mix and Mask Set (which is now in the sale) which has some of my favourite face masks in which I'm so glad I have again, and the Laura Mercier Crème Brûlée Honey Bath which has been a luxe favourite of mine forever now. I also got given the Lush Sleepy Body Lotion in a big tub which I'm so glad I can bathe slather on once more.
