In todays blog post I will be sharing some new things I got for Christmas and have bought myself during the sales. This isn't everything new, but just some things I wanted to share/rave about!
Lush had some amazing sales on Boxing Day, it was definitely worth waiting in a line for 20 minutes... I bought Candy Mountain, Snow Fairy Shower Gel & Rock Star Soap. They smell so sweet!
I got this cream highlighter from Stila, called All Over Shimmer. It is a beautiful golden highlighter that looks stunning on the tops of the cheekbones.
I bought the Strawberry Hand Cream from The Body Shop with a voucher from Christmas from my aunty & uncle. I love the strawberry scented products from The Body Shop, amazing!
I also got the Body Butter in Coconut from The Body Shop. Can you tell I love The Body Shop!?
Phone cases! I'm currently obsessed with getting new phone cases.
From Kikki.K I got this super cute phone case (left) on Boxing Day. It goes with everything and I love metallic gold right now.
For Christmas I got this Skinny Dip phone case (right) that I have been wanting for months! Literally have had my eye on it since September... I got it from my dad and step mum. I adore it!
Zara has some of the best smelling perfumes for the best price. Usually around $20 but I got mine on sale. I got the perfume Black Amber, smells very feminine in my opinion & I like to wear it on special occasions.
This Christmas I got my first Tiffany&Co. box. I've always loved Tiffany jewellery and have been wanting something from there since forever. I got this pair of silver earrings that say Tiffany&Co. New York. They look great with every outfit and I haven't taken them off since I got them!
From my mum I got this beautiful blush from Nars. It's called Luster. It's the perfect peachy-pink colour that suits my skin tone nicely. It is slightly shimmery which makes my cheekbones shine. Can't recommend this enough!
These two Chi Chi palettes I got from my friend in Secret Santa. They are the Mochas and Timeless palettes. I have wanted these for ages and was going to go pick some up for myself before she gave me them. The are a great price and are extremely pigmented for drugstore eyeshadows.
VELVET TEDDY BY MAC! The most raved about nude Mac lipstick. I have wanted this for soooo long. Finally got it from my mum and step dad on Christmas. I have been wearing this as my go-to everyday lipstick. It's like the colour of your lips but better!
And finally, I asked for some Bath & Body Works candles for Christmas and I received! So happy because these are nearly impossible to get when living in Australia. My favourite one I received is the 3 Wick Paris candle which smells like Pink Champagne but sweeter! It makes my entire room smell incredible.
Santa was very good to me this year.
I am so grateful of everyone around me for putting in so much effort into giving me the best gifts I could imagine. Christmas is my favourite time of the year & I love giving and receiving gifts to/from my family and friends. Thank you to everyone for making this Christmas a special one. I think this has been the best Christmas ever (I say this every year).
This isn't everything I received so if I missed something someone gave me it's not because I didn't appreciate it! If I included everything it would be a very long blog post...
Disclaimer: Not bragging or showing-off in any way. Can't explain how grateful I am for everything & I know not everyone is as lucky as I am. I constantly donate things I don't need to charities such as LifeLine. Christmas is a time for giving.
Hope you all had an amazing Christmas and New Years. Happy 2016!
Hope you all have a good year.
New blog posts every week so I'll talk to you soon :)
