What I got for Christmas!

Hello everyone!
I hope you are all well and still munching away on Christmas leftovers. I wanted to do a little post about what I got for Christmas as I love reading these sorts of posts from other people - I think the easiest way, is if I sort it by person! I should point out, that Christmas was on a budget this year - due to too many expensive holidays!

Kenny - The boyfriend
From Kenny, I received a gorgeous and very unique pair of felted slippers that look like little elf booties - how cute are they?!?
I was also lucky enough to get some goodies from LUSH (he knows me so well), like Mr. Bumble, my first ever Toothy Tabs, and some Christmas goodies.
And, I got a lovely mug that's more than a little apt. I use Spreadsheets for everything; cooking, blog planning, shopping, holiday planning, tidying my room... seriously, if it's worth doing well, it's worth making a spreadsheet for.

Mum (Santa)
I must have been a good girl last year as I most certainly made it onto Santa's NICE list this year! I got too much to list (and also some money to treat myself in the sales), but here's a few highlights. 
The House of Fraser exclusive Ocho Loco eyeliners from Urban Decay - 8 full size eyeliners in super wearable shades, well, except maybe that light blue.
I also got the snuggly trifecta - slippers, jammies (tartan....eek) and a new dressing gown! Woohoo! it's not christmas day without being able to get all clean and snuggled up in new jammies.
Also, another Christmas essential - a huge box of chocolates. This year, the British pudding inspired collection from Thorntons that I've been dying to try for aaaaaages. 

Jenna - my sister
Jenna and I did each other stockings this year, filled with lots of lovely little things. A couple of my favourite bits are;
The renaissance tshirt I'd been lusting after in River Island and then couldn't find in stock ANYWHERE. I don't know how she got it, I'm just so glad she did!
She gave me so many lovely little bits and bobs - a tealight holder, earrings from River Island, my favourite LUSH bath bomb,a gorgeous floral scarf and honestly, so much more, she's so great at picking presents for me!

My Aunt
My main gift from my aunt this year was the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. I was over the moon! I have (as I may have mentioned) been lusting over the Naked 2 palette, but can't see it in stock anywhere, so I was thrilled to get this one to curb my Naked cravings. Haven't had a lot of time to play around with it, but am loving it so far.

Other friends and family
I've been so spoiled this year; from other friends and family I recieved restaurant vouchers (so Kenny and I can go out for a nice meal), a beautiful scarf, Disney pyjamas, chocolate, books and bags,... I've been a lucky, lucky girl!   

So that's Christmas past for another year *sad face*, it's hard to believe it isn't it? I hope you all had a fantastic time over Christmas, and that you were able to spend time with your loved ones.
