This is my first proper post of 2014 and it is the highly requested ‘What I got for Christmas’ post! These presents were bought by my family members, friends and boyfriend. In no way shape or form am I boasting, I really appreciate every gift I received big and small and just want to share my opinions on them! I hope you enjoy reading this 🙂
Urban Decay Naked ‘Flushed’ palette
This is a palette that contains a bronzer, blush and highlighter. My mum bought me this present and it cost around £20. The bronzer is a nice, build-able colour that is best applied with light strokes to get the desired effect. The highlighter has a light pink shimmer to it and isn’t the sort of product I have used before as I prefer to use a white, creamy powder instead. I have used the highlighter above my contoured cheeks to give a touch of shimmer. The blush is a very rosey pink colour and can be very dramatic looking if you are not light handed. Over all I would say this is a great palette for anyone starting out with contouring and highlighting. It is high quality and will last you a long time no doubt. I have my own favorite bronzer and powder I use for contouring and highlighting which I prefer to use, but this is probably because I’m not a big fan on changing things up!
Asos Checked scarf
My brother bought me this scarf for Christmas, he has surprisingly good taste for a man! It’s from ASOS and I am guessing it was around £10. I love this scarf because the colours in it are brighter than the usual checkered scarf and it is also a light material instead of a woolen one.
Michael Kors watch
My lovely boyfriend bought me this watch for Christmas as I have wanted one for so long! Michael Kors watches have been very popular this Christmas I have found. It cost around £230 but it is well worth the money and will last me forever. It is a statement piece that gives any outfit a touch of class.
Large hair rollers
I was kindly given these large jumbo rollers by my brother’s girlfriend. She knows me too well as I love big, voluptuous hair! These rollers in the image aren’t the exact rollers I was given but the image gives a good realistic view of the size they are. As you can see they are very big, I haven’t tried them yet but I’m excited to use them! I don’t know if they will do a lot to my hair but I will definitely give them a try as I love the look rollers give.
OPI Nail Varnish
I got this nail varnish as a secret santa present and I love it. It is so vibrant and glittery which is perfect for the party season, or for a night out to add a little bit of glitz! I think it would be lovely as a top coat over a black or red colour.
Alien perfume by Thierry Mugler
My mum bought me this perfume because I have went on about it for so long and I kept using her bottle of it! It’s a lovely, rich, mysterious scent and I would wear it all year round! I have to admit I prefer the ‘Womanity’ perfume by Mugler, but this one is still amazing.
I also received lots of stocking fillers like pyjamas, dressing gowns (yes, plural) comfy fluffy socks, a few wee dresses, a phone cover and a selection box! I got a new car in September which was my main Christmas present so I actually did very well this year! I couldn’t be happier with what I received and I had a lovely Christmas spending time with my loved ones. I can’t believe it is over so quickly! Now it’s all about summer 😉 Any recommendations on where to go for a fab beach holiday?
Thanks for reading, lots of love x
