What I Got For Christmas '14

Wow, I can't believe Christmas is over! This post is a little late but that's purely because Christmas is such a busy time and it was super refreshing, being able to relax. So, below are a couple of things that I received for Christmas. I've not included everything because it would be too long of a post but I realise that I am a very lucky girl and appreciate all of my gifts from various people. I just love reading this sort of post so thought I would join in!

For one of my main presents, my parents put together a hamper full of all different things. The idea behind it was that we booked a cruise for the summer and they thought it would be nice to create a hamper to take on holiday with me. It included make-up, body products, summer clothes and a few other bits and bobs. The pictures below show a few of my favourite things that were included..

L-R: Benefit Skincare Set, Bumble and Bumble Surf Set and Philosophy Cocktail Party Set.

These sets of minis are perfect for holidays! They all fit perfectly inside a suitcase, without taking up too much space and also let you try out new things whilst being away. All of the brands I have tried before but not the specific things inside the packs. The one thing I'm looking forward to trying the most is the Bumble and Bumble set, especially as it'll be summer.

Katy Perry - Royal Revolution Set

The next thing inside my hamper was the Katy Perry Killer Queen's Royal Revolution set. Whenever I go on holiday, I love to have a new scent. This is so whenever I wear it at home, it'll remind me of the times away. Does anyone else do that?? Also, I love sets like this as you can layer the scent, meaning it'll last all day.

Nyx - The Heat Is On  Nail Varnish Set

This has to be my favourite thing that was inside the hamper. It's the most perfect thing to take on holiday and I literally can't wait to use them. This is ideal because it means that you have a selection of colours which you can swap and change as you please. Also, the fact that they are all miniatures, means that they will easily fit inside your suitcase. 

Now onto the gifts that weren't inside the hamper..

Yankee Candle Simply Home Winter Collection and Yankee Candle Pink Dragon Fruit Tealights

As I've said before, I have a serious addiction to candles. All of my friends know this, resulting in a ton of them! I'm so so happy and can't wait to burn them. My room is going to be smelling amazing for days.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette and MAC Keepsakes Smoky Eyes Palette

I was a very lucky girl this year and received a lot of make-up from my family. Above are two of my favourite things. The first being the Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay. I've already got the first one and love it so when my brother brought the second one for me, I was over the moon. The quality of the shadows is great and you can do all sorts of looks with the variety of colours. Next to it is the MAC Keepsakes palette. The packaging of this is so beautiful, I literally squealed when I opened it. I love that the palette contains eight shadows, giving you a range of colours. Definitely one of my favourite collections by MAC. Below is a picture of the beautiful colours,

I hope you enjoyed seeing some things that I got at Christmas. As said before, I was a very lucky girl and appreciate everything I was gifted.

Happy New Year, everyone!!
