I Was Spoilt This Christmas

I noticed quite a lot of people doing these posts, and also asking for others to do them too. I wasn't sure whether to do one or not as a lot of people see it as showing off, but I decided to go ahead and do it anyway! I love seeing what other people got for Christmas because I'm so nosey, and I'm sure I'm not alone on this.

I'm not too sure how I want to do this, so I'm just going to show an overall photograph of what I got and then point out a few things.

I just want to point out, like everyone else, I'm not trying to show off or brag about what I received. Every year I set out all my gifts like this to admire them, and then I take a photograph, because I like to look back years later at what I got that year. I appreciate everything I got for Christmas and I have an amazing family, friends and boyfriend who know exactly what I like. 

The photo above, and a few others, were ones that I had taken on Christmas day so they weren't set out really for blogging purposes, and are just in any order, so I'll just pick random things out and if you have a question about something in particular, just comment below! The first gift is my Wildfox Couture sweater with the American flag skull on it. I absolutely love these jumpers and I picked this up while I was away as a gift from my mum for me. I then got these lovely Hollister pyjama bottoms from my friend Abbie as she knew I really wanted a pair while we were away but never got a chance to get them. They look so cosy!

My boyfriend got me a hot pink electric toothbrush. This may be random, but I've been wanting one for ages so I'm really happy I finally got one! My sisters got me a new curling wand since mine blew up recently, so I'm glad I can finally curl my hair again, and I used it straight away.

My mum and step dad also got me the book 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' as it was one of my favourites when I was younger so it was a nice surprise to get that and I'm actually looking forward to reading it again. They also got me a Christmas bake book, as many of you will know I love to bake. I got two pairs of super cosy slipper socks from my friend Sarah and also my step mums parents which I love because this is what I live in whenever I'm in the house. I also got some slipper socks from Abbie to replace the ones I lost when I was in NYC so I'm so, so happy, as they are made from the rarest of lambs! (not really, but you might understand this joke if you watch MissGlamorazzi's YouTube videos). She also got me the super amazing present of three sachets of Serendipity's Frozen Hot Chocolate mix. If you have ever visit New York you need to go here, and order this drink, so, so good! She then got me two Essie nail polishes I've been wanting for ages, an EOS lip balm, a little donut mirror, and some yummy Hotel Chocolat chocolate which I scoffed today.

My biggest present (possibly after my Wildfox sweater), was a Kindle. This wasn't something I asked for, so was a surprise. I haven't got to use it yet as I'm not actually sure how to use it, but I look forward to putting some good books on it!

My Dad got me these four DVDS for Christmas and I'm excited to watch them all. I've already seen them all apart from I Don't Know How She Does It (although I watched it this afternoon), but I'm the type of person who loves to watch films over and over again. Serendipity has been my favourite film this year I think, so I'm so happy I finally own it on DVD.

My beauty gifts are some of my favourites (obviously) and one of them was a huge surprise. I got the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette from my boyfriend because I'd been wanting it for absolutely ages so I'm so happy that I finally get to use it. I also got the Tarte Lip Surgence from my mum and step dad which I'm excited to try out as I got the same set in different colours last year and loved it. Finally, my biggest surprise, was the Naked Basics palette which I got from my friend Rebekah and I was so shocked when I opened it. I never thought anyone would buy me it, and I'm so super excited to try it out. Obviously I'll have a review up for you all of it very soon! Check out her blog by clicking here.

I realise this is such a long post, and I was completely spoilt this Christmas. I want to say again that I'm so grateful for everything I received this year, and everyone who buys me gifts knows me so well!

You may have noticed that there isn't any mention of Lush in this post, and as it's my favourite, you may be wondering why. This is because I bought quite a lot during their Boxing Day sale and I want to do a separate post on it to show you all everything I got so you can see what reviews I'll be doing in the near future.

To end, I'm going to post my favourite gift...

My Marmie! He wasn't really a gift, but I just love this photograph of him. We got him his own stocking last year and filled it with treats and toys again this year, and he loves to climb inside everything.
