I cannot believe it’s been a full year since I started my blog and Christmas has been and gone by so so quick. It doesn’t seem like 2 minutes ago when I was rushing around trying to get everyones presents ready and now I’m writing my ‘What I had for Christmas’ blog post. Here is a selection of items I received for Christmas this year.
I was so lucky and was spoilt by my boyfriend this year, also got some lovely presents off friends and family.
From my boyfriend I had a plum coloured Michael Kors clutch bag which I absolutely love, I always love my Michael Kors bags. It’s a clutch bag with an attachable strap – I love how versatile this style of bag is, where you can wear it on a night out or wear it with a casual/smart outfit. I’m yet to put it down since receiving it!
The next item I got from my boyfriend was the Charlotte Tilbury Bombshell look. Last year i had the Sophisticate look and absolutely loved it, and over the last year I have been buying her products and have now built up quite a collection. The collection came with ‘Sex on Fire’ blusher, the ‘Feline Flick’ in black, the ‘Amber Haze Colour Chameleon’, full fat lashes, K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in ‘So Marilyn’, lip cheat in ‘Kiss n Tell’ and lip lustre in ‘Red Vixen’. It was win win this year, no one can ever go wrong buying me Charlotte Tilbury make up.
Next was the HP sprocket, I had seen so many blogger reviews on this product and just had to get my hands on it. The printer connects via bluetooth through the HP app and works with ‘Zink’ zero-ink printing technology. This is just perfect for printing pictures and great for making memories. The best part is, it’s perfect to pop in my handbag and print on the go. Another great present.
The last present from my boyfriend was a new hydratem8, after starting a new workout plan at the gym, this is ideal to keep myself hydrated. Mine is the red bottle, with the quote “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”.
My sister gave me a new bobble hat, which I haven’t taken off since I opened it, especially with all this frosty weather here in Stoke-on-Trent.
Of course, she also got me the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick ‘Liv it up’, which is a pale pink. Without knowing, my sister and I both bought each other the exact same lipstick. It wasn’t planned, but at least we know we both love the colour. She also gave me a new choker from Primark to add to my collection.
The final presents were from my parents. I’ve have really been wanting a Tom Ford eye shadow palette, but they are a lot more expensive than I would normally pay, but now that I have got one, I want another! The shadows are so smooth and they apply really well. Once you have tried the Tom Ford shadows, I don’t think you’ll ever want to use any another. I had the ‘Nude Dip’ palette, it’s a great set that you could wear everyday, or even make it really smokey at night. I also had a Tom Ford eye defining pencil liner in ‘Espresso’, which is so much softer than any eyeliners I’ve used before, definitely a keeper!
Hope everyone’s had a wonderful Christmas this year and had lots of lovely presents. Comment below, I’d love to hear what you all received!
