What I Got For Christmas 2016


Today I wanted to share some of the things I got for Christmas this year! I was so lucky to have had such amazing and thoughtful gifts from my family and boyfriend, I just couldn’t believe it. I thought it would be nice to share a few pieces, especially the beauty items as I love reading other people’s What I Got For Christmas blog posts, so I hope you enjoy this too.


This is such an exciting one for me, my boyfriend so kindly bought me the Morphe 35O palette! He did so well, it was only in stock on BeautyBay for about half an hour before it sold out, so I was so suprised on Christmas Day when I opened this one!

It is a beautiful, warm-toned palette with 35 shadows, mostly matte but with some amazing shimmer colours too, with lots of orange and brown colours. I have already used this a few times and I love it! I will definitely do a full review on this later, I can’t wait to play with it more.


From my parents, I got the Pixi Glow Tonic and Glow Mist! The toner is something I have wanted to try for so long, I am really looking forward to using it as I have heard so many good things about it. The glow mist looks like something I will adore too, so I was so grateful to get these two!


I had some lovely Body Shop products given to me, some from my parents and some from my boyfriend. I love The Body Shop, as you’ll know if you’ve been reading my blog for a while! I have a separate blog post going up about these products so keep your eyes peeled for those!


From my grandparents, I had a lovely snuggly dressing gown! But they also bought me this beautiful nail polish set from Next, with the prettiest pink colours which was so kind.

There are two matte finishes, one that is gel finish and one that has a full glitter finish – I have already used the top left one and these are such amazing quailty! I hadn’t tried any cosmetics from Next before but I will definitely keep an eye out next time I am in the shop now.


From my brother, I had this absolutely beautiful necklace. Honestly, I love it so so much! It has a pendant with a bumble bee, it is so dainty and delicate, I was so happy with I opened this. I know my mum gave him direction with this gift, so they both did well here, I am so grateful for it!


The last thing I wanted to mention was from my lovely boyfriend – he adopted me an orangutan! He is so thoughtful, they are one of my favourite animals and I feel so happy knowing the money goes to help with conservation. I also got this little baby toy version that is so cute, it comes with the adoption pack!

So that is everything! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, I really like the restful days between Christmas and New Year so I am spending today curled up on the sofa watching comforting films as I have had a really busy 4 days of visiting family! Christmas is just my favourite time of the year.

Please link your blog posts or let me know what you got this Christmas as I would love to know! Xxx

    These are all great gifts ya lucky girl! I totally have my eyes on that polish those colors are really good. I was going to say woahh I can’t believe your brother thought to get that, that is until I read further on lol Thats pretty standard for siblings though of the opposite sex, its hard to determine what to get them!! Nevertheless, its very nice that he went out and got it!

    These are all such lovely gifts! The Body Shop products are just amazing and make the most perfect presents for Christmas 😊 I got the Shea Body Butter this year and I love it! And I loveeeee that your boyfriend adopted an animal for you – that is honestly one of the loveliest things to do for a gift. I adopted a slow loris for my boyfriend once and it’s such a nice feeling to know that your present is making a difference somewhere in the world for a cute little fluffy thing ☺️ Your photos are amazing as always! 💕 xxx
