I'm not too sure what this post is if I'm honest; there's a few bits that I got for Christmas and some other things that I've picked up myself!  I've unfortunately had to leave out the lovely watch that my boyfriend bought for me, as it's too big for my wrist and I've had to take it to be adjusted -sob.  I also got quite a few bits of clothing, but I wasn't happy with how they were coming out in the photos so they've not made the cut either!

I some bath sets as usual, which I actually love getting as it's a great way to stock up and they're much more fun than buying a bog standard shower gel from the supermarket!  One of the sets was Boots Fruity Strawberry, which included a body wash and body butter.  They. Smell.  Amazing.  They smell truly like strawberries with no hint of that chemically fake smell, I'm addicted to the body butter already as I apply it and I waft around smelling like a smoothie for hours afterwards!  It leaves my skin feeling super moisturised too, and hasn't aggravated my eczema either which is a bonus.  
I also got a couple of Soap and Glory sets (yay!) and my mum knows how much I love the Sugar Crush products, so she got me a set of just those things.  I love the hand cream, I keep meaning to look for the full size version too but for now this handy size will fit perfectly into my handbag.  Another set by Soap and Glory I got was four of their body sprays - I usually stick to perfume, but oh my god these are amazing.  There is a Sugar Crush one - yes it smells incredible, and three others that I had not heard of before, including one called Fruitigo which also smells lovely and fruity. 
A friend got me a Champneys set, which included a body wash and a candle which is currently in my bathroom.  It smells of refreshing citrus, I'm not usually that fussed about candles (blogger fail right there) but this one smells gorgeous!  
One of the pieces of clothing that I manages to get in the photo were these grey and black leggings from Next, which my boyfriend's mum got me.  I love the print and they will be perfect with oversized jumpers and tops.  

So, onto the bits that I treated myself to!  I have had my eye on the Zoeva Rose Golden Vol 2 brushes for a whiles now - look how pretty they are!  I have to admit that I still haven't used any of them yet, I can't bring myself to dirty them with make up just yet! 
I picked up a set of four Laura Geller lip glosses in the sales, and they are all beautiful and wearable shades that I will be reviewing separately in a future post.  
I repurchased my trusty Anastasia DipBrow Pomade, my holy grail brow product, which is in the shade dark brown and which will now last me for months and months.  I also chose two Mario Badesco products as a free gift with purchase (either on Cult Beauty or Beauty Bay-I can't remember!), there is a cream soap and face mist; I'm really excited to try these as this is a brand that I've not come across before.  

So there we have some of my recent purchases/Christmas presents; I love having a nosey into what people got for Christmas, so if you have one of these kind of posts then send the link my way! xx
