Well hello there, hope you had a fantastic Christmas and managed to spend some quality time with your loved ones, eating a little bit too much food. As the title suggests, I'm going to show you the lovely gifts I received for Christmas this year. I chose most of them myself so I got some really good stuff!
I thought I'd start with the beauty stuff I got off my husband. I've got some very exciting things to try out so I just had to get these photos sorted today so I can actually use the stuff!
REN Instant Beauty Heroes (Similar in the sale for £16 at REN)
Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in Raspberry (£18 at John Lewis)
Fleur de Force Lipgloss in Written in the Stars, Lucky Star and Starry Starry Night (£6.99 at Feel Unique)
Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick in Honey Bare (£14 at Cult Beauty)
Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette (Currently in the sale for £36 at Feel Unique)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in So Hollywood and Starlight (£28 at Cult Beauty - out of stock but might be worth signing up to the waitlist in case they come back in stock)
Jo Malone Cologne in Blue Agava and Cacao (£42 at John Lewis)
Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera (Currently in the sale for £12.80 at Beauty Bay)
The Balm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette (Currently in the sale for £27 at Feel Unique)
QVC often have some amazing value beauty sets so I like to keep an eye on what offers they have on, especially at Christmas time. I was able to get some huge bargains from Elemis, a brand I've loved for a few years now and Laura Geller, a brand I've been desperate to try!
I managed to get this Elemis set that contains both skincare and bodycare for just under £40. The value of the products is well over £100 so I think I got a lot for my Mam's money! The set is still available on QVC for £49.92, a bit more than I paid, but still a massive saving.
The product I've been most desperate to try from Laura Geller is her foundation, the Balance n Brighten Baked Foundation (£26 at Feel Unique). For some reason, I never took the plunge but when this set was on QVC for just under £40, I thought I'd be silly not to get it. (Also from my Mam). Now I can try a full face of Laura Geller makeup and since it's more readily available, in places such as Debenhams, I can pick more up if I like it! The set is still available on QVC, at the slightly higher price of £43.56 if you fancy buying this. Debenhams also have some really great sets but they don't go as pale as Porcelain.
On to the random stuff I got, my parents got me some slippers and tubs of chocolates. I also asked the husband for the Goji white and gold headphones (now reduced to £44.99 at Currys), the rose gold pineapple money box (can't find this in stock online but I got mine from Fenwicks) and as a Reese's lover, the Reese's Snowman (around £4 at Tesco, much more expensive on Amazon!).
I think my family have cottoned on to my love for pugs now so I got this fabulous selection of pug related items and I love them all!
So that's everything, watch out for my Boxing Day sales haul coming next...
