What I got for Christmas 2015
Hey guys! So I know I'm a little bit late on the scene with this one but today is literally the first bright day I've been free where I could get half decent photos! Oh the joys of winter in Ireland.
We don't go too crazy with gifts in my family and we never spend too much money on each other but I think I was pretty spoilt this year and got some lovely things which I am very grateful for!
Firstly, my very kind mother got me this fab Carvella by Kurt Geiger hand bag and I am in love. It's the perfect size for me as I hate bags that are too big, I'm not a gal who puts everything but the kitchen sink in their bags! I also love the colour, it's such a good quality bag that I know I will use to death. Mam also treated me to the Naked Smoky palette. I may have told her that I wanted this! I've been using it loads since I got it and as are all Urban decay shadows, it's amazing! I love the colours, their super wearable for both day and night time looks.
My sister got me heaps for Christmas. She bought me a beautiful rose gold Mi Moneda style necklace. It goes with everything, I love it so much! She also got me the Nicky Clarke frizz control hair tool too. This is basically a hair dryer which has several different attachments that can be used to create, big hair, wavy hair and blow dry straight hair. Super handy if you're in a rush and only have time for one step (don't have to use a hair straighter!) This would be great for travelling too. My nieces and nephew (from my sister too really) got me lovely grey and white pjs and white slippers which I forgot to photograph, oops. I was super chuffed because they were just what I needed.
My boyfriend bought me a beautiful sterling silver heart shaped diamond necklace. I love it for it's sentimental value more than anything. He also got me some gloves as a joke gift because he always says my hands are freezing, which is true so they will be used! I got a'Christmas Eve' Yankee Candle from him too which I didn't photograph because it's almost all burned out now and was lighting in the kitchen! Finally he got me a spa voucher which I cannot wait to pamper myself with some day.
Lastly, I was gifted money from my Brother, Aunt and Cousin. I haven't spent it all yet but I did do a little shopping last Monday and picked up a black denim skirt in and a high neck stripped top in Topshop. I love this outfit so much, it's super duper cute with black tights and boots. Definitely money well spent!
I'm feeling very lucky to have such generous people in my life! I've had a lovely Christmas overall, and not just because of the gifts I received, that was just a bonus :)
What was your favourite thing you got for Christmas this year? (well last year now!)
