Anyone else a little nosey and love to know what people got for Christmas? As with every year my loved ones spoilt me and I received some gorgeous, thoughtful gifts.
This Christmas I had a lot of lovely beauty gifts under the tree which spurred me on to write this post. I think us beauty bloggers are pretty easy to buy for considering how much we ramble on about the things we love most.
When I saw that QVC stocked Tarte I knew I really wanted to try some bits from the brand. I received a set containing 5 full sized products and a makeup bag (full review will be coming soon). Another absolutely amazing gift set comes from Nars, they seem to nail it every year with their Christmas collection with this year being no different. The Digital World Lip Pencil set is perfect for a beauty junkie like myself, I love the formulation of both the matte and satin pencils - a welcomed addition to my over flowing lipstick collection for sure!
MAC's pigments are a go to product for me when it comes to evening makeup and I've been eager to expand my collection. After hearing so much about Vanilla pigment I'm so happy to finally have it, spoiler alert - It's gorgeous! Anyone who knows me well understands my love for Kiehls, on Christmas Eve I ran out of my trusty Ultra Facial Cream so to have my stock replenished just the day after was pretty amazing, I'm excited to try more from the Ultra Facial range too!
Vans seem to have made a come back and I've been eager to have a pair of trainers in my collection, so they just seemed the obvious choice! I'm still unsure on how to wear them best, but I do like the style and they're seriously comfy! Lastly I received a gorgeous, handmade organic pillow mist from Bloom Remedies, similar to the This Works Deep Sleep pillow spray this stuff sends me right off to sleep containing ingredients such as Lavender and Ylang Ylang.
Unfortunatly we lost a close family member this Christmas which really put a lot of things into perspective for me. I feel so grateful to have been able to spend Christmas with my family and friends - and of-course to receive these gifts! I'm sure I don't need to disclaim that this is in no way bragging, but almost a preview of products that are likely to feature in reviews/ up and coming posts in the new year!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas day... If you have wrote a similar post sharing some of your gifts this year then please feel free to leave a link in the comments so I can go and be nosey!
