LIFESTYLE | A Few Bits I Got For Christmas
My all time favourite time of the year is now over and I’m super sad about it! I thought I’d share a few bits that I got for Christmas as I always love reading these posts.
I personally don’t think that these posts are brag-gy at all and I always love reading everybody else’s – I’m a nosey nancy and I’m sure that I’m not the only one!
I’m always super grateful to all of the loved ones in my life that gift me presents every year and that obviously goes without saying. I also love gifting back and seeing their smiling faces!
I received a few beauty items this year and the main one being the Magnitone Barefaced Facial Cleansing Brush in Rose Gold which I am soo excited about! I’ve seen quite a few fellow bloggers rave about this brush and I desperately need to get a better skincare routine going, so I thought this would help and I’m looking forward to using this with my Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser.
I finally received two makeup products from Charlotte Tilbury you guys! I’m super excited to try both the Pillow Talk Lipstick and Lip Liner – I can see these two becoming my new favourite lip duo and can we just take a moment for the packaging?! I expected great things anyway, but the rose gold is even more amazing when you own it yourself.
Obviously I had one of the Stila Magnificent Metals Eyeshadow’s on my list and the shade I opted for was Kitten Karma. It was really hard (#firstworldproblem) to choose one shade, but I plan on collecting them all anyway! Kitten Karma looks like the perfect all over neutral sparkly lid shade, so I’m very much looking forward to giving this product a whirl too and of course I’ve only ever heard great things.
A fashion item I had been lusting after for a while was this gorgeous pale pink/peach NYC Jumper from Topshop. I’m happy to say that I now have it! It will be perfect for throwing on with a pair of jeans and a pair of converse and I can confirm that I have a jumper obsession.
The ever famous ASOS Cat Cross Body Bag is now also in my ever growing cross body bag collection and it’s soo much cuter in real life! Black is practical too, so it’s a win win really. I am obsessed with cross body bag’s, so of course I didn’t just have one on my Christmas wish list. I also received this pink beaded one from Topshop and it’s absolutely beautiful, I’m obsessed with it already.
I’ve had these Olivia Burton Earrings on my wish list for absolutely ages and I’ve loved wearing them every day since Christmas. They’re even more beautiful than I imagined and now I’m obsessed with Olivia Burton jewellery!
I got some gorgeous new bedding a few months ago and it made me want to grab myself a new blanket too. H&M are great for homeware so I checked out their blankets and opted for the Herringbone-patterned blanket in pink. It’s really soft and looks great with my white bedding!
I receive a wall calendar for Christmas every year and this year I decided to go for the Maps of the World one by Rifle Paper Co. as I know a lot of people had one from Rifle Paper Co. last year and they’re super pretty – which is also fab for Instagram am I right?! I am also toying with the idea of getting one of the mini calendar’s because obviously they’re perfect for flat lays, but is that a good enough excuse to buy one..
I received lots of other lovely bits too and I’m obsessed with everything! I hope you all had the most wonderful and magical Christmas and have a fab New Year too.
