Christmas presents 2012

Hey loves!
I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and New Year :)
I've loved reading what everyone got for Christmas so I thought I'd share what gifts I received with you...


Clockwise from L-R:
Kim Kardashian Gold EDT
I already have Kim's original fragrance so I knew I had to have this one too! I think I actually prefer it to the normal one :) I'm no good at describing fragrances but let's just say if you're a Kim K fan like me you will LOVE it!
Yankee Candle Pink Sands
This is one of my favourite scents from Yankee Candle and now I have the massive version of it, yay! I like to buy the tiny Yankee Candles so I learn which one I like best and then buy the bigger version :)
Vaseline set of 3 giant tin
This gift set contained an original tin, rosy lips version and aloe vera scent. They're perfect for popping in your handbag but the giant tin has also come in really handy for storage!
Zara Chocolate perfume
I've only had a little sniff of some of the Zara scents but I've never seen this one - it smells of cocoa, yum!
Yves Saint Laurent Touché Éclat foundation
I was very lucky to receive this foundation as it's been on my wish list for yonks! I swear by the Touché Éclat concealer pen so I have high hopes for its foundation equivalent.
Molton Brown minis set
I'm constantly travelling, staying over people's houses etc so this set of minis is really handy! They smell delish too :)
Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation
The blogger hype around this foundation has been hard to miss! I popped this into my Dad's trolley as it was just £5 in Wilko's, bargain!
Bomb cosmetics soap
I've not used anything from this brand before but I've heard it's similar to Lush - which I LOVE - so I'm looking forward to seeing if it's any good :)


GHD Air hair dryer
I've been using a travel hairdryer since my normal one sparked nearly a year ago so this hairdryer was a godsend! I've used it a couple of times already and my God it's amazing! I have really thick, long hair that takes an age to dry but this makes it SO much quicker!
Babyliss Big Hair
I had a go at using this but I had a bit of a 'mare! I think it will take a little practice to perfect - I've heard Tanya Burr has done a YT tutorial on using it so I may have to watch that ASAP!
Enrapture Encode Totem Styler
I generally use my GHD straighteners to curl my hair but I heard these were pretty good so I'm looking forward to trying them. What's your favourite combination?


The Inbetweeners box set
I remember watching The Inbetweeners when I was at uni years ago before anyone had seen it and found it hilarious at the time! I'm not surprised it's been so successful. I can't wait to just stay in and watch episodes of this over and over!
Cinderella DVD
I'm building up a collection of Disney DVDs and this very almost completes my collection! Yay :-D
Toy Story box set
Because I'm cool...


Cheryl Cole autobiography

I actually got two copies of this - big Chezza fan! She's a huge idol of mine so I can't wait to read all about Ashley, Derek, Simon etc.

Caitlin Moran - How To Be a Woman

My mum got this for me and I've heard it's hilarious so fingers crossed I like it!

McFly Unsaid Things story

I've been a McFly fan since the early days - I have all the albums! - so I can't wait to hear all about their lives and relationships :)

I also got given a purse from the Kardashian Kollection which I obvs LOVE!

What did you get for Christmas? Send me your links!






  1. you had some awesome christmas pressies. Ive had the babyliss big hair for well over a year and still dont have the hang of it :S haha xx

  2. i got the big hair and the enrapture too! i think i've got the hang of it but i was already drying my hair with round brush so think that helps with understanding the technique. I think I'm going to watch some yt vids too tho
