What Father Christmas Brought…

 I just some great presents this year along with store vouchers, money, chocolates and the obligatory socks and underwear. I thought I would share just a few of the things I got with you although I will do more in depth posts about a few of the things.

I was a little naughtily and open a present before Christmas, my friends mother had given me a little box which I guessed was a lipstick so when I got locked out of my house with no keys but a little Christmas present waiting to be opened I couldn’t resist. When I saw the gold box that the YSL lipstick comes in I literally squealed. This was actually one of my favourite presents, I can’t justify £22 on a lipstick but it is just such a perfect gift. It is one of the YSL Rouge Voluptes and in is 11. Rose Culte which is a stunning bright pink slightly red colour, just my cup of tea. It has however tempted me into buying lots more colours, maybe Father Christmas will bring me some more next year!

I was lucky enough to get three presents from my boyfriend and I love all of them (which is rare with him.) He bought me a ‘The Boss and always will be’ mug which I literally love! We always joke about me being the boss and a bit of a control freak, it really made me laugh when I opened it on Christmas. It wasn’t what I was expecting but it’s a joke we have always shared. I also got a Marc by Marc Jacobs Katie Bracelet which I had asked for and the ring which I hadn’t. You can’t really see it clearly in the above photo but it is a very chunky bracelet and ring with a turn lock clasp. He’d first bought it in silver as the gold is very hard to find however they do have it in Selfridges, it isn’t to everyones taste but I love anything gold and chunky!

I didn’t receive many other beauty products other than the Best of the Best Nail polish set by OPI which I think is just fabulous because I never finish a nail polish so this gives me ten mini colours to play with and I also got the Nina Nina Ricci Perfume which is a lovely sweet scent.

My younger cousin made me this little cushion which is just too cute and goes perfectly with my room, it’s always extra special when someone takes the time to make something!

I got a couple of other bits such as these massive fashion books and a River Island iPad case which has now become it’s new home. I also really like the Love frame which will be replacing my current frames that are on my wall. My parents both got me a toy car as a joke since I have been asking for a car for a while. I received a couple of jumpers and DVD’s as well but I going to exchange the jumpers as they aren’t quite my style. The DVD set is of two of my favourite films The Notebook and My Sisters Keeper as well as The Time Travellers wife which I need to watch again as I fell asleep and it got a tad complicated.

All in all I am very happy and thankful for all my gifts, I hope people enjoyed the ones which I gave them too!

How was your Christmas and what did you receive?
Let me know if you would like a post about any particular gift!

    I'd love to see a review on the YSL lipstick, I've been eying them up for ages. My fave present this year was my Michael Kors watch, or my Morrocan Oil! I did a post a bit like this over on my blog. Thanks for sharing everything! Hope you had a lovely Christmas.xxx
