What I Got For Christmas

This is such a late post as Christmas was ages ago. Is it even acceptable to post about Christmas so late in January? Anyway you may have noticed that I haven't posted for awhile. I have mocks this week and next so I have been really busy revising. I really wanted to share with you what I got for Christmas as I love reading these types of posts.
First up I got quite a few Real Techniques brushes. I already have the Core Collection and the Starter Set and I love them and I really wanted to get some more. The first brush I got was the Blush Brush which I absolutely love it picks up just the right amount of product and it is an ideal size for applying blush. I also got the Duo Fiber Set which I am really loving as well. I love the duo fiber face brush for applying powder as it picks up such a small amount of product that my powder never looks cakey. After Christmas I also made a order and I got the Sam's Picks brush set which is amazing. I will be reviewing all of these shortly on my blog.  
I got this cute little gift set from The Body Shop. One of my favourite scents from The Body Shop is the Vanilla Bliss scent which is only available at Christmas so I got this set which comes with the shower gel and body butter. It also comes with a cute snowman sponge which is so cute. I can't wait to use these products.
Quite awhile ago I got a sample of the Roberto Cavalli Acqua and I loved it so I got a bottle for Christmas. I love this perfume so much it smells amazing, it's quite a floral scent I really recommend that you check this out. I got the NO7 Eye Appeal which a neutrals palette, I love all the colours in this palette and I think it will be perfect for travelling as it is quite small. I got my first Sleek product, I got one of their blush palette in the shade Lace. I am so excited and I can't wait to use it. I got a couple of lip products as well. I got one of the Bourjois Color Boosts in the shade Fuschia Libre which is a really pretty colour I love lip crayons so I am really looking forward to trying this. I got one of the new Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks which I am really pleased with. I've tried the old formula and I was really impressed so hopefully this will be just as good. I got the shade As You Want Victoria.

I got so many Soap and Glory products that I don't think I'll have to buy any for quite awhile. The first thing that I got was the Powder Trip palette, this palette is gorgeous it comes with Solar Powder bronzer, Love At First Blush blusher and the Glow All Out highlighter. I'm excited to try this as I have never tried Soap and Glory makeup before.

This year I was lucky enough to get the big gift set called the Yule Monty. You have probably seen this on so many blogs as people went a bit crazy when it got discounted from £60 to £27 which is an amazing bargain as  you get a lot of products for your money. I've only tried one thing so far Heel Genius which is an amazing foot cream.
I also got the Once Upon A Lime gift set, I have never tried this scent range and I really like it. I think I have plenty of shower gels and body butters to last me the year now. 

I got the Fearne nail polish gift set which is really pretty. The colours in this set are gorgeous and they are all colours that I will wear. I got a lovely Rimmel quad in the shade Smokey Blue which I am interested in trying. I also got a set of Accessorize lip glosses, all the colours look so pretty and I can't wait to try them. 
I also got the Lauren Conrad Beauty book. I already have her Style book which I really love. I like these types of books as you can just pick them up as and when and have a quick flick through. I love Lauren Conrad's makeup it always looks lovely. I also got this cute owl organiser which I really like. My Mum bought me this as she thought it would be useful for when I go to university later this year.   

My last present is very exciting and was a complete surprise. My Dad got me the Panasonic V110 video camera. This can also take pictures which is what I have used to take the pictures for this post. I am really impressed with the quality of the pictures.

I am really grateful for all the gifts that I got and I can't wait to try them all out. I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year. I am going to try and post more frequently this year but I know it will be hard as I've got my A Level exams in the summer which ill be a stressful time but I hope to post more often this year.
