What I Got For Christmas 2014

Sunday, 28 December 2014

Hello Beauties! I've been umm-ing and ahh-ing about doing this post for about a week now. I love reading them myself, just like I love reading hauls, make up collections, etc - because I'm extremely nosy, but I know there's quite a lot of stigma attached to these posts. I never did one last year because of this, however this year a couple of you have asked to see what I got so I thought I would do the post anyway. Needless to say, I'm in no way trying to show off or offend people, I'm sure you got a lot of lovely gifts, and Christmas really isn't about how much money is spend on gifts. 

My main present from my parents this year is this beautiful Kate Spade purse. Kate Spade is one of my all time favourite designers, I love all of the cute girly designs and the quirky details, however due to my student budget, I haven't been able to buy anything from her. I've also needed a new purse for quite some time now but haven't been able to find one I like within my budget, so this year my parents surprised me with this one from Kate Spade. Needless to say, I adore this and I can't wait to go shopping so I can properly put it to good use!

This year I was fortunate enough to be one of those people who received a 'Selfie Stick' from Santa. It seems like everyone and their dog got one of these for Christmas and I can see why - they're so much fun! This one is from Kit Sound and is a bluetooth one so it doesn't come with any loose wires that you have to attach like some of the ones I've seen. I put this to use on Christmas Day to snap some family selfies and of course a selfie with my cat who you can see is my screensaver!

I also received these Ruby & Ed slippers from my Brother this year, I had no idea what he was getting me and (with a little bit of my Mums help) he picked the perfect gift! I've been wearing these non stop since Christmas Morning and I can definitely say that these are the cutest, softest things I've ever owned. They also have real leather soles so I know that these will last a long time, or at least I hope they do because they're one of my favourite possessions at the moment!

I only asked for one thing this year, which was these beautiful shoes from Dune. I've been on the hunt for a new pair of black heels for a while now as mine are looking a little too shabby, but I'm quite picky when it comes to heels. I wanted something with a strap, a little platform and I wanted them to be suede or suede effect, and when I saw these online I knew they had to be mine. The main reason why I wanted these was because instead of just being plain and boring, they had glittery soles which is just so me. These will be perfect for nights out and parties, so I know I will get a lot of use out of them. 

This year Santa also bought me an organiser for my hair tools. This is just a metal frame (I couldn't get a good picture and I haven't put it up yet!) which is fixed onto your wall and holds your hairdryer and a pair of straighteners/curlers - like they have in the hairdressers. I think this will be so useful to have as I'm always using my straighteners! I also got this gorgeous Tarte Amazonian Clay Blusher in Doll Face, Tarte blushers are my all time favourites so Santa clearly knows me well! My Mum and Dad also got me these Sally Hansen Gel Polishes which don't need a UV light. These look really interesting and I love the colours and the concept, but I haven't used them yet so I will have to update you all when I've given them a proper go. These are from Canada though, so I'm not sure if we can get them in the UK - Sorry! I also got some money and a gift card this year so I could treat myself, which was great as I actually had something to put in my new purse! I'm planning a trip to West Quay in Southampton tomorrow to hit the sales, so hopefully I will be able to pick up some nice bits. 

As I said, my parents went to Canada just before Christmas this year and they picked me up some Victorias Secret underwear (it's my favourite) and a really cute Victorias Secret blanket which is pink and white striped with VS in black letters in the middle. This has now become my blogging blanket as I'm always sitting on my bed with it while I'm blogging away! They also got me this TIGI Oatmeal & Honey shampoo and conditioner which I already know I love. I've had these a couple of times before and they work wonders on dry/damaged hair and they smell amazing. I also got this acrylic cotton wool pad dispenser to go with the rest of my acrylic storage and an EOS lip balm. 

I also got a couple of bits for my car and smaller body sets but I've either already used them or they're in my car already so I couldn't take photos (and I didn't think you'd be that interested in car stuff!). I hope you enjoyed having a nose at what Santa brought me this year! If you've done a post like this, I'd love to see it so please feel free to leave it in the comments below :)

Lots of Love,

  14. Your gifts are gorgeous. I don't understand the huge fuss about these posts and why they are so controversial. For me, personally, these posts are my favourite of the entire posts of Christmas. I even look through everyone's Christmas albums on Facebook because gift giving is part of the big day. I hope you had an amazing Christmas. I put my gift post up to if you wanted to have a look, or a nosy ;) x
