You taught me everything I know, wave goodbye, wish me well...

I was soo excited for the build up to Christmas but then the day zooms by so fast, I had a great day, with close ones and eating practically non stop! I hope you all had a lovely day too, even if you don't celebrate Christmas.

Of course this holiday season wouldn't be complete without the Christmas haul post if you're a blogger right? I am extremely happy and grateful for everything I have been given from my family and friends.

First up; I received a couple of gift cards for Caffe Nero and Mac. I have never bought anything from Mac before so I am excited to splurge a little. Feel free to leave me any recommendations :). I also received the Real Technique expert brush which has been on my Christmas list since the beginning and some Nails Inc polish which came in cute little Christmas crackers, and wooop I finally got the Michael Kors MK 5055, I knew I was getting this for a few weeks now but I love it so much. Never taking it off!

I received a few beauty gift boxes this Christmas, I guess people know me too well! I am always moaning about how much I hate my skin, I guess they got the hint! I received the Glamour Beauty Box which is super amazing, the items are worth more than the cost of the box and I have always wanted to try the HD brow kit. I then received two skincare sets, one by Elizabeth Arden and a box full of amazing products from Kiehl's, these look so so so GOOD! My sister bought me some more clear acrylic draws too!

If you don't know me, I have four sisters and two niece's, so this year we did a secret santa with a £5 budget, I'm sure this is over £5. I LOVE the seaweed flavour wheat crackers and I am looking forward to using the face masks. 

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas Day / time off work! If you have done a similar post feel free to link in the comments - I'm nosy and love to see what you received!! I'll hope to do a review or two of the beauty items I received when I start using them :)
