What I Got For Christmas 2013

I must be so nosey because I absolutely love these kinds of posts and have been hunting them down since Santa made his deliveries! I've had such a lovely Christmas with all of my family and hope that you all have too. I've been an extremely lucky girl this year and am forever grateful for all of my beautiful goodies but maybe not so grateful for the extra inches on my waistline from the chocolates for breakfast and all the buffets instead of proper meals!


It just wouldn't be Christmas without a Soap and Glory gift set and a bit of Lush! I've spent more time in the bath than I have out of it the past few days but if time off work isn't for pampering then when is?! I was so pleased to get my hands on the Origins Mask Marvels because I've been dying to try one of their infamous face masks and now I can try three of them!


My go to perfume is Miss Dior so it's a given that I get a new one every Christmas and Birthday, I dread to think how many of these that I've got through but if it ain't broke don't fix it! I also got the Katy Perry Meow gift set to accompany Purr, I'd never smelt this before but it's sweet and girly so naturally I love it! It also comes with a body lotion and tiny roller ball version of the perfume which is perfect to pop in your bag. To finish off the sweet smelling stuff is this little Yankee Candle in Black Coconut which smells just like Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess, it is absolutely gorgeous and I can't get enough of it.


I am literally the coldest girl in the world so warm snuggly things are always welcome! I've been after a tartan scarf for ages now but couldn't find the perfect one until I spotted this one from Topman and then forgot about it but lo and behold Joel must have been paying attention that day because it ended up under the tree, I can't even tell you how soft it is, I just love it! I also got the cutest bunny rabbit mittens and if they don't keep my hands warm enough there's a hand hottie as well. I think my most used present so far has been the microwavable owl, he's even keeping me warm as I type!


The past few days have been so busy that I haven't even had time to have a play with this little lot yet. I can't even remember how long I've been after a MAC eye shadow quad so I am very excited to have one in my grubby little mitts now! The hours that I spent trying to decide what shades would make the perfect neutral companions - I don't even know how I had time to work and live my life! I got two shades with the quad which are Shroom and All That Glitters and the final two are on the way if Yodel ever stop holding them hostage (they've been out for delivery since Christmas Eve...) I also got two of the most beautiful palettes which are the Bobbi Brown Smokey Warm Eye Palette and NARS Splendor in the Grass, they are gorgeous! I could go on and on about all of my new pretties but I'll save it for the reviews!


I'M GOING TO SEE KATY PERRY!!!!!!!!!! I don't know how I'm going to cope seeing my biggest girl crush in the flesh but I am so, so excited. Joel can no longer moan about me having her album on in the car constantly because he needs to learn all the words now, he didn't think this one through did he?!

There were a few other little bits that I got as well but if it's not been pictured I've either used it, worn it or ate it! I can't believe that's Christmas over with for another year and 2014 is well on the way now.

If you've done a what I got for Christmas post then please leave me the link in the comments because I would love to have a look!

  8. You got some good stuff there. I got the Mask Marvels set too. I've tried the Drink Up Overnight Mask already and it's great, really hydrating and definitely beats the clinque mask I was previously using xx
