What I Got for Xmas

Hello again everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas, I had a short break from my blog as working in retail is definitely a challenging thing near Christmas time – not to mention all of the uni work I have to do. However I am back with a post showing everyone what I got for Christmas/birthday. My birthday is the 20th so I decided to mix it in with my other gifts also. I feel like I have been so spoilt this year and I couldn’t possibly be more grateful for everything I have got!


Anyone who knows me know I have an absolute shoe addiction. A fresh pair of trainers is probably one of my favourite things to buy! For my birthday I got a little bit of money so I decided to buy myself the Adidas Tubular Shadow’s. I think these look just like Yeezy’s but actually a little bit better, I love them so much and they are truly just such a cool pair of shoes. One of my xmas gifts off my boyfriend was some nude Adidas Superstars. I live and die in my metallic silver ones as they are so comfortable so I know for a fact I will wear these to death.



Waking up on Christmas morning to a giant box of fresh new makeup and brushes was probably the highlight of my day. Multiple foundations, concealers, lipsticks and palettes! However I know I couldn’t include everything so I chose my highlights which had to be my Urban Decay Naked Palettes. I have never wanted a palette more in my life than the Naked 3 however I have fallen straight in love with the Ultimate Basics palette!
I also received 2 Kylie Lipkits in the colours Candy K and Ginger (spoiler – Ginger is my all time absolute fave). My Estee Lauder lipstick was also a birthday present and I am so in love, the colour reminds me of Taupe by MAC but its a lot more satin with a very moisturising formula.
My final highlight of this section was my array of Real Techniques brushes. You can never have to many makeup brushes. I did receive the stippling brush twice and i’m still not to sure what I actually use a stippling brush for so if anyone knows please comment and let me know! Also stay tuned for other blog posts reviewing these products!


Little Gifts:

As well as many pyjamas, socks, smellys and slippers (the usual) I got a few lovely little gifts from family. My boyfriend got me this lovely Olivia Burton watch from Hugh Rice which I adore, I love how dainty it is and how detailed the watch face is. I also got a few perfumes, Black Opium my all time fave; Jimmy Choo – Blossom and obviously I had to get Nicki Minaj – Trini Girl to add to my ever growing collection of Nicki Minaj perfume!


Main Presents:

My main present for my birthday is definitely one of my favourite things ever, a 4-in-1 record player. I am so in love with it! I am also a huge The Weeknd fan, I have loved House of Balloons since release all the way back when it got released so getting the trilogy mix-tapes on vinyl was an truly amazing present. They sound amazing also.

For Christmas my parents decided they would treat me to a new camera lens, I really love photography so I thought expanding on my Nikon would be a great idea. I opted for a low-light lens as I felt like it would be the sensible option for my first ever lens and I absolutely love it. I actually took all the photo’s in this post with it, the quality is fantastic and it really adapts to the low-light settings to look just as sharp as my own eyesight! I couldn’t be happier with it. dsc_0183-01dsc_0185-02dsc_0179-01
