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!
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!
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.
I am not posting this to brag only to show what I got as I know I love reading blog posts like this so hopefully others will enjoy reading this! Comment below what you guys got for christmas, thank you so much for reading!
