Haul || What I Got For Christmas 2013

 Hey Beauties...
I hope you all had a  fantastic Christmas and enjoyed spending time with loved ones, pigging out and getting completely spoilt! I know I did! Let me know if you would like a Christmas Day post? 
But for today I thought I would show you all the lovely gifts I was lucky enough to receive this year as this was a highly requested post and I do love reading these kind of posts myself!

I will warn you this may be a bit of a long post so lets get right into it.

Enrapture Amplify Jumbo Waver || River Islahnd Bag || Monster Nokia Purity HD On-Ear Headphones

Enrapture Amplify Jumbo Waver is something I have had my eye on but couldn't afford and wasn't 100% sure it was worth the splurge so I was so excited to receive this from my father-in-law, I  had put these on my list but was still a surprise he'd actually got them! I LOVE them! The  River Island Bag was a massive surprise from Oli! He even picked it out himself with out any hints or suggestions! I'm in love with it!! same with these  Monster Nokia Purity HD On-Ear Headset from Oli, he knows I like to listen to my music while blogging and I don't have a decent pair of headphones that fit my tiny head haha!

MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Soft and Gentle || MAC Prep+Prime Translucent Setting Powder || MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural Medium Plus || MAC Rebel Lipstick || MAC Lustering Lipstick 

My mum bought me the Rebel Lipstick just as a little something to open as we are going shopping in February to get the Naked 3 Palette hehe The rest of the MAC goodies was from Oli which I did know about as I was with him when he bought them for me because he wanted to make sure he got what I wanted.

Benefit Porefessional || Benefit Rockature Blush || Benefit Hoola Bronzer

 These are also some goodies from the Father-in-law! I did in fact put these on my Christmas list along with the waver but I was no way expecting him to get me all of them! I'm so glad and grateful he did though!

Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter || Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Hand Cream || Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter

 Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter this body butter is my all time favourite for winter/Christmas time! I did mention it to my Father-in-law and was so pleased he had got this for me! now I don't have to ration the one I have haha! I was even more surprised that he had thrown in the Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Hand Cream now I can take this gorgeous smelling cream with me! I have the big had cream pump in my bathroom and its a huge hit in my household! He also got me Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter which smells amazing!! We're not actually sure if it was meant for me or my sister-in-law but he let me keep it hehe!
Real Techniques Powder Brush || Urban decay Vice 2 Palette

 Real Techniques Powder Brush was a little something from Tia just to go with my MAC powders as I didn't actually own a Powder brush. You may have seen me use and talk about the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette a week ago, but it was in fact a Christmas present from my Dad that he let me open early as I wasn't going to see him over Christmas! OMG I love it!!

Paco Rabanne Lady Million Perfume || Intimately Beckham Perfume || Scotty Dog Keyring

 Paco Rabanne Lady Million Perfume this is my signature scent! I get a bottle every year for either Birthday or Christmas from my Father-in-law. My Mother-in-law got me Intimately Beckham Perfume which is gorgeous! and more of an evening smell
 for me. How cute is this  Scotty Dog Keyring my Sister-in-law got me!! someone she works with made it!

White Gold Plated Silver Diamond Studs || Silver Hoops || Merry Must Haves My Favourite Lip gloss Shoe || Merry Must Haves Nail Polish Set

 White Gold Plated Silver Diamond Studs just a little something from Oli! I haven't worn ear rings for many many years! purely because I didn't have any I really liked and im allergic to the cheep ones you get in shops (trust me hey!). But now I do! I also received these stunning Silver Hoops Ginger, (Olis nan on his mums side).  Merry Must Haves My Favourite Lip gloss Shoe  and Merry Must Haves Nail Polish Set were from my Nan and Granddad, How cute are they!! I love the shoe lip gloss holder! I couldn't believe it actually came with a lip gloss built in haha! I haven't tried the polishes yet but they are adorable!

Fabulous Frootz Mango and Papaya Shower Set || Dove Shower Set || Spa Collection Shower Trio || Spa Collection Candle Trio

Everyone gets some bath/Shower sets for Christmas! it wouldn't be Christmas without them! haha. The Mango and papaya set is another gift from Olis sister. The Dove shower set from Olis Nan (his other nan) and my Aunt got me the adorable Spa Collection Trio Sets I love the candles and cant wait to try all these out hehe!

Dr Pepper BBQ Sauce || Jelly Belly Jelly Beans || Baking/Cook Books || Family Photo Calender
Dr Pepper BBQ Sauce  Jelly Belly Jelly Beans  Baking/cook books Family Photo Calender

OMG the Dr Peppa BBQ sauce is just heaven for me!! if you don't already know I am a (reformed) Dr Pepper addict! everyone that knows me associates me with Dr Pepper its crazy! This amazing gift was also from Olis dad! along with 3 of the baking/Cook Books  and the Family Calender. The other Baking/cook book was from Olis nan. and the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Jelly Belly Jelly Beans was a big surprise present from Tia! (I have the biggest sweet tooth!) How awesome are they though!!

Yankee Candle || Black Cherry || Cinnamon Stick
And lastly both me and Oli received these Large Yankee Candle Jars from Oli Dad! (His dad is so naughty isn't he!!) the Cinnamon Stick is my favourite! and the Black Cherry is Olis (also mine) 

I did also receive a stocking full of chocolate, a Furby Boom From Oli, we got Tia one and Oli decided they could play together haha!. An Address and Birthday book, and a small amount of money. As I mentioned before My Mum and I will be going for our annual shopping trip in February to get the Naked 3 Palette and have a Mother/Daughter day out! I cant wait!

I am in no way, shape or form, bragging about the gifts I received! I am beyond grateful and appreciate everything I was given! I can't believe how truly spoilt I have been this year! 
But for me the best part about this Christmas was seeing Tia's face Christmas morning!!
