What I Got For Christmas | Beauty

Hello Everyone,

How was everyone's christmas? Mine was pretty amazing and very special! My cousin got engaged and we had a big family reunion since I have been away for a while at univerisity.  It was also the first christmas in a few years that my uncle has been back from working abroad, so it was very special since everyone was together.

I don't want this post to be me showing off what I got, but I always love watching/reading these types of posts so thought I would share what I got given, and let me know if you want reviews on any of the beauty products!

So firstly I got some candle products.  I was really wanting a wax burner because they are so much cheaper and much more efficient than normal candles.  I got this from Yankee Candle and the burner is only £6.99 and the melts are only £1.49 each.  Christmas Eve is my favourite scent from yankee and I love it!! What is very good about wax burners is that you can buy cheap melts on ebay or amazon and it becomes a much cheaper way of making your room smell nice. I also got this cool soy candle, I can't describe the smell but its a nice subtle fresh scent.

Then for beauty I got a couple of things from Lush, a Benefit foaming cleanser and the Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm.  I was wanting this balm for so long!! It smells AMAZING just like walking straight into a spa and it is so luxurious.  I have used the Benefit cleanser a couple of times and I really like it so far, feels good and makes my skin feel really smooth.  But I think it would dry out dry skin, but thats okay because I have oily skin! So perfect for me :)

Then I got a large bar of Honey I Washed the Kids Soap, which is my favourite soap from Lush!! The best smell in that shop, if you don't know it then you need to go to a shop now and smell it! Then the other is one of the Lush Solid Shampoos, not sure which smell this is, however it smells similar to the Honey scent.  I have used one of these before and I wasnt a fan as I didn't think it really cleaned my hair, but I will give this one a shot and let you know whether it is better than the one I have had before.

Then I got these gorgeous earrings from my best friend (Lucy Ann can I mention her enough, but she is beautiful and amazing).  They are from Kate Spade and they are perfect for all year round.  But I will definitely use them for special occasions as they are very sparkly and probably too much for everyday.  But I love them and they are beautiful!

I also got a couple of new notebooks as I always do every year.  I have a definite obsession with notebooks and so my family know this and give me some to crave it.  I love the Follow Your Heart one I got from my grandma and I am using it this year for planning my blogs and writing ideas down.  I haven't decided what to use the other one for, but I love quotes and this one is a definite favourite!

Then finally I got this gorgeous bag from none other than Sainsbury's! It is such a beautiful grey colour and I dont' have any bags this colour, and I'm a little bit obsessed with the chain straps so this bag was a definite favourite.

I am very grateful for everything I got this year and feel very lucky!

I hope you liked this post and let me know what you got down below! Also, let me know if you want a further review on any of the products I have mentioned.
