What I Got For Christmas 2015

What I Got For Christmas 2015 | Too Faced, Jo Malone, Ysl, Thomas Sabo, The White Company
Happy New Year you lovely lot! I hope you've all had a wonderful time over the festive season and aren't feeling too gutted that it's all over (I'm sure the Easter Eggs will be hitting the shops in no time...). I thought I'd show you some of the gorgeous gifts I've received this Christmas as I must admit, I love reading these types of posts as they just bring out the nosey parker in me and I love seeing what everyone got treated with! I've been spoilt rotten this year and I'm so lucky and grateful for everything I've received! Get ready to see a lot of pink, pink and more pink...

YSL Nail Lacquer | Rose Romantique
YSL | Rose Romantique Nail Polish
Me and my sisters always do secret santa each year instead of buying individual gifts as there are four of us, and it's more exciting that way (even though we all just have to find out who's got who long before Christmas). My little sis bought me the YSL nail polish I'd been lusting after in the shade Rose Romantique. It's such a pretty manicure pink shade and the gold YSL packaging is so luxurious.

The White Company | Pink Cashmere Socks & Yankee Candle | Snowflake Cookie
The White Company | Pink Cashmere Socks
It's not Christmas without receiving a brand new pair of fluffy winter socks, and this year my boyfriend got me some pink cashmere socks from The White Company. If there was such a thing as *sock goals*, these would be it! They are probably the cosiest, prettiest socks ever, and not to mention the most expensive I've ever had! I'm kinda scared that my sexy monster munch feet will ruin them.

Yankee Candle | Snowflake Cookie
My Mum likes to get me and my sisters a Yankee Candle each year for Christmas (and we don't let her forget the time she thought they were called wanky candles either..awks). She chose Snowflake Cookie for me which has a sugary sweet icing scent!

Jo Malone | English Pear & Freesia Candle
Jo Malone | English Pear & Freesia Candle
I got a Jo Malone Candle from my boyfriend because he must think I'm the president of the Jo Malone fan club the amount I rave about the brand! He bought me the English Pear & Freesia candle which is a scent he chose himself as he said it smelt the most like 'me' haha. It's a really lovely, light floral scent which does smell a lot like the kind of perfumes I go for (mainly Chloe) and it will be perfect for Spring, which I'm praying will arrive pretty sharpish!

Thomas Sabo | Pearl Bow Charm
Thomas Sabo | Pearl Bow Charm
My Mum had previously bought me my pearl charm bracelet from Thomas Sabo as a graduation present and I literally wear it everyday with a cute little silver heart charm. So for Christmas she wanted to get me a new charm so that I could swap them around if I wanted to. She got me a delicate little pearl with a bow around it and it's literally the prettiest! 

Too Faced | Soul Mates Bronzer & Powder Pouf Brush
Too Faced | Soul Mates Bronzer
My boyfriend knows that Too Faced is one of my favourite brands ever. I'd probably made that obvious to him a little while ago when I realised a new Too Faced counter had appeared in my local Debenhams and I basically screeched and ran over to it (no, I didn't play it cool..). He chose the Soul Mates Bronzer in the shade Ross and Rachel which is a gorgeous glowy bronzer with a pretty pink blush in the middle. Plus it's heart shaped so of course I was gonna be obsessed with it.

Too Faced | Powder Pouf Brush
He also got me the cutest little powder brush complete with pink handle and a cute little bow. It is made with an exclusive, luxurious fiber nicknamed Teddy Bear Hair, and it literally is the softest brush ever!

Ted Baker | Kassady Purse
Ted Baker | Kassady Purse
I've never owned a designer purse ever, so I was so pleased and grateful to receive this gorgeous patent pink purse from Ted Baker as a gift from my boyfriend. I love the rose gold detailing and sparkly crystals on the clasp and it has a really pretty black and white floral design on the inside!

Thomas Sabo | Glam & Soul Ring
Thomas Sabo | Glam & Soul Ring
My boyfriend also spoilt me with this gorgeous ring that I've had my eye on for so long, if you've been reading my blog for a while you maaay even remember it was in my Christmas Gift Guide from two years ago! It's a rose gold plated ring with a rose quartz gem that has a halo of little crystals surrounding it. It's so perfect and is definitely my favourite present!

GHD | Vintage Pink Platinum Stylers
I'm so excited that I've finally got a GHD upgrade! My old pair of straighteners were so ancient that they felt like they were practically tearing my hair out whenever I used them! I did actually hint to my Mum when I'd found out about these Vintage Pink stylers, because baby pink straighteners were definitely something I needed in my life! I've already used them lots and they glide through my hair and leave it feeling really silky and sleek, plus they create lovely curls too. Good hair days come at me.

What did you get for Christmas?
