What I Got For Christmas 2012

I had an amazing Christmas and got loads of lovely presents and I'd feel totally left out if I didn't share some snaps of everything that I received.


My main present from my parents, which I couldn't wait to get on my feet, was a pair of tall Ugg boots. It's obvious to me now how much more amazing the real deal are, they are so comfy and cosy, regardless how ugly they may look. Another favourite, 100% inspired by blogs, youtube and twitter were the Sleep-In Rollers. I'm sitting with a full head of rollers under the hairdryer hood as I type.

I got so many amazing presents but I selected a few, that were most appropriate for my blog, for a quick close up.


My parents, brother and boyfriend all chose well on the perfume front. My brother got me The One by Dolce and Gabbana which I hadn't heard of, but it smells amazing, whilst my boyfriend got my Lady Gaga's Fame which I was dying to get my hands on. My Mum got me the Viva Selection box from the Perfume Shop which is such a clever way to try out new fragrances and there's a voucher inside to buy the one you like the best.


It wouldn't be Christmas without a bit of Soap and Glory and The Body Shop! I love the Cranberry scented gift set from The Body Shop. My old Tangle Teezer was looking a bit worn out so my Mum did well by replacing it with a sparkly purple one along with some trusty pots of Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment.


Some more beauty faves. My boyfriend chose out the Revlon Hollywood mirror when we came back from Egypt as I went on and on about how much I loved the magnifying mirror in our hotel room. It shows he listens ;)
I've only used the Sleep-In Rollers twice so far but it's LOVE! They're so easy to use and the results are impressive. I'm sure a review will appear at some point.
Another gold star for my brother. After getting my skin analysed at the Girls Day Out Show in Glasgow by the girls at Logicalskincare I posted on Facebook that I had sensitive skin and needed to get my hands on some UltraCalming products by Dermalogica. I couldn't believe it when I unwrapped it on Christmas morning.

Finally, the present that made me smile from ear to ear was a personalised calendar from my boyfriend. I had no idea that he was making it when he kept asking me to put our ice skating pictures up. He put so much thought into it, with each month having a theme and even putting little captions into individual days like when I start placement and our anniversary.

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas. I'd love if you left a link to your Christmas present posts as it's nice to see what other people found under their tree.

    1. He's a keeper that's for sure. I had no idea that he'd think of something so cute.
      Every time I wash my hair now I'm tempted to stick them in, they don't take long to put in at all x
