What I got for Christmas

Wednesday, January 03, 2018


Happy New Years everybody! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year's Eve.
I know it's a bit late to be doing one fo these posts but I'm doing it anyway because, if you're like me, you like to read and watch 'What I got for Christmas' posts/videos, you won't mind that this came in a little late.

One of the reasons why I didn't write this post earlier was because I got money and a Sephora gift card as gifts and I wanted to check out the sales and buy a few things and also because I was waiting for a few things I ordered to arrive.

This year I really only asked for two things: a Sephora gift card and the 'Pretty Honest' book by Sali Hughes, both which I got. With the gift card, I bought the Too Faced Beauty Cracker which contains travel size versions of the Better Than Sex Mascara, Shadow Insurance Primer and Melted Lipstick in Fig. Also from Too Faced I got the travel size Born This Way Concealer in Light and from Becca, I got their Glow On The Go Kit. Still on the makeup/beauty side of things, I also got this Kiko Nail Varnish in Ligh Rosy Chestnut (which I now think it was a mistake as I then realised the colour is very similar to a nail varnish I got from Essence a few weeks ago)

The thing that got me the most excited this Christmas was the Mr Wonderful Agenda I got. I love Mr, Wonderful and if you've been following me for a while, you'll know I've been using their agendas for two years now.

In a bit of a selfish wave (not really because I think we should reward ourselves but anyway), I got myself this marble and glitter Ipod Case from Ebay and also a pink Phone Stand to keep on my desk.

These next things weren't really Christmas gifts but they arrived a few days before Christmas so  I  thought I'd include them here. Zaful was kind enough to send me some amazing things. Firstly they sent me this Silver Crossbody Bag which is really similar to the Dior Diorama bag. I wore this bag on Christmas day and got many compliments on it. It's small and cute, but your essentials fit nicely inside.






Also from Zaful, I got this white Ribbed Jumper, a red Chunky Jumper which is long enough to serve as a dress, which I find great, a Gingham Trechcoat I've been dying to get and this amazing Mermaid Blanket (so amazing it's sold out). If you're interested in buying these items here are a few pointers:

  • The white jumper is quite tight so I'd suggest you size it up
  • The red jumper is quite big so if you want it to be a bit more form-fitting, you should size it down
  • The trenchcoat is super long (and I mean looooong- mine reached the floor) so if you're short like I am, you'll probably have to have it cut at the bottom. I did that to mine and it turned out great 
Keeping with the fashion theme, I got another piece of outerwear. This time, it's a grey oversized coat from Belle Époque Boutique. This coat is so huge two people can easily fit inside. I also received a pair of military style boots that I've been dying to get my hands on. I love the pearl detail on the front as I feel like it gives the boots a feminine touch. 

Finally, I got a small frame with a picture of my Godson, some Minnie Mouse Slippers from Primark and some Fuzzy Socks from Oysho. 

What was your favourite Christmas gift?
