I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and a great start to the New Year! Today I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite gifts I received this Christmas.
My main present from my mum and dad this year was the iPhone X. I love it. I got it in silver which goes perfectly with my new peach Skinny Dip case. The X has double the amount of storage compared to my previous 7 plus (always a bonus), and has a few new features too! I mostly use my iPhone to take pictures and the camera on the iPhone X is even better than the last, you now have the option to add studio lighting to your images or use portrait mode on the front camera! I also like using the new face id feature and sending out the odd Animoji.
Also from my mum and dad (I say mum and dad but we all know full well dad has no idea what it is) I got the YSL Touche Éclat Blur Primer and also the All Hours foundation. I already own the Touche Éclat foundation from YSL and absolutely love it so I can’t wait to try out this one with my new primer!
For lip products I was lucky enough to receive the new Mac Patrick Star lipstick in ‘Mamastarrr’ along with the matching Mahogany lip liner from my nan. For my Birthday my brother bought me the Huda Beauty Lip Contour Kit, it comes with 3 products, a full sized lip liner in the shade Bombshell, a mini liquid matte in the same shade and a mini lip strobe in the shade Ritzy. I’m a sucker for anything that comes in nice packaging so the lip shaped tin was a bonus. Adding to that my auntie bought me a Jouer lip topper in the shade ‘Papaye‘, I’ve been wanting to try one of Jouer’s lip products for quite some time and I can’t wait to sport this one during my next holiday.
Some other beauty products I received this year was the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, the Sigma E40, the Zoeva 221 in rose gold and a few bits and bobs from Sephora.
One of my favourite presents my brother gave me was this Chanel acrylic brush holder, I decided to put all my favourite eyeshadow brushes in there and display it on my new dressing table, I love it!
Honestly I was in serious need of some new gym clothes especially smaller leggings. My last few pairs were so baggy I genuinely think I could start strumming on all the bunched up material and begin playing my own tune. Luckily enough for me both my nan and my uncle bought me a few new pieces from GymShark and I can’t wait to wear them out.
I love sunglasses, I’m definitely one of those annoying people that wears them come rain or shine, recently I’ve been looking for a different shape or style rather than my trusty old Ray Bans, might have something to do with being told I look like Ozzy Osbourne on a weekly basis (thanks mum). So for my birthday my mum and dad bought me this pair from Quay Australia, as you can see they are two toned pink and purple and are a different shape to what I’d usually go for. I love these glasses and will definitely packing these for my summer holiday.
I own a fair few pairs of trainers but don’t actually own a white pair, I’ve also been after a pair of Nike Air Force 1 for a few years now so this year my uncle and auntie bought me the low Nike Air Force 1 in (obviously) white.
A week before Christmas I celebrated my 20th birthday, my main present from my mum and dad was a new dressing table and a set of Alex 9 drawers, I’m obsessed! I used to have the same dressing table in oak but it didn’t match any of my bedroom furniture so I wanted it in white. Now that I have the Alex 9 drawers I finally have enough space to store all the make-up I bought in New York and for all the bits I received this Christmas.
As always I’m extremely grateful for everything I received this Christmas and for my Birthday and I can’t wait to start putting everything to use! Also let me know what your favourite gifts were this Christmas.
