What I Got For Christmas 2013 ♥

Hey girlie's!!!

Today I thought I'd join in on the 'What I Got For Christmas' bandwagon, personally I love reading these type of posts and seeing what lovely gifts everyone receives, I know this is abit of a love/hate post so I just want to add a little disclaimer that in no way am I bragging/ showing off, I'm a super lucky lady to receive all the lovely gifts I got and I really am grateful and thankful!!! Anywhoo lets get going....

Beauty/Make-Up/Perfume


Firstly let me just squeal in excitement at the fact my boyfriend Michael managed to get me the Naked 3 Palette...Eeeek!!!!! Words cannot describe how much I'm in love with this palette, its just so beautiful!!! Michael also got me the gorgeous Ted Baker Large Make-Up Bag, I've been lusting after one for a super long time so I'm thrilled to have one, its so cute!!! My Mum & Dad then surprised me with some MAC goodies & a Urban Decay Mascara,  it just goes to show my Mum doest actually switch off when I talk to her about make-up constantly ha ha bless her. 
Bath Sets
I'm a huge Soap & Glory lover, everything about the brand is amazing in my eyes so I was super thankful for these 2 beaut's. My Mum & Dad got me the 'Once Upon A Lime' Set which smells absolutely incredible, its so refreshing and will definitely wake me up when I have my morning shower. The 'Bright and Bubbly' Set was from Michael and contains 4 miniature Soap & Glory classics and a body buffer, this little lot is definitely going to keep me going for a while.
Electrical
Michael spoilt me so much this year bless him as the 'Remington Pearl Pro Curler' was a gift from him also, this past year I've really got into curly/wavy/textured hair so I'm super excited to try out this bigger barrelled curler and see what looks I can create. The 'Oral-B Electric Toothbrush' and 'Paloma Floral Lamp' where gifts from Michael's parents, after using the electric toothbrush I actually cant believe how nice your teeth feel afterwards compared to when you use a standard toothbrush, its bizarre but great ha ha. 
Candles
If you know me you will know I'm obsessed with Yankee Candles, I always have them burning everyday in my house, I'm such a crazy candle lady he he!!! I received a medium 'Beach Walk' candle from my Auntie, I must admit it's never really caught my eye when buying candles in the past, but my goodness it smells incredible!!! My Mum and Dad kindly got me a Christmas Samplers Selection, they know how much I love my Christmassy scents ha ha and Michael's parents bought me the large Apple Spice candle which again smells incredible.

Slippers
Oh my... How stinking cute are these slippers from Next!!! My Mum and Dad got these little beaut's for me and they are literally the softest most cosy slippers that my feet have ever seen ha ha.

Blogging Goodies
I actually couldn't believe my eyes when I opened up this... a Portable Photo Studio!!!!! How amazing!!!!! I've been lusting after lighting for my blog pictures for a while as taking blog photos at this time of the year is impossible so this present has just answered alot of my prayers ha ha, I love the fact that the set is all portable, making it so easy and lightweight to carry around and if I only want to use the lights out of the set I can or If I just need the tripod etc. I'm really looking forward to having a play around/photo session soon and hopefully my picture quality will improve. Major boyfriend points for Michael for treating me to this ha ha. 

So that's most of my gorgeous gifts, my goodness I'm a lucky girl!!! I also received some comical stocking filler gifts, a tonne of chocolate that I think will last me a lifetime ha ha and this year me and Michael received quite alot of money so we will be treating ourselves in the sales I'm sure!!!

What did you get for Christmas beaut's??? Leave me your links below as I'd love to see.
