What I Got For Christmas 2015

This year for Christmas I asked for a lot of makeup, as many of my family know.. I'm obsessed!
Normally I wouldn't really ask for makeup as I tend to buy all of that for myself, however, recently I've grown a huge obsession for one particular brand and you will notice a pattern in recent posts of which brand it is..

I received so many amazing gifts this year, some make up and some which are a bit more sentimental - Here were a few of my faves.

This was a present from my sister and it is by far the' most beautiful blush palette I've seen! It contains a highlight, 2 bronzers and 4 blushers. I have been using this palette everyday since I received it and it's beyond amazing! My favourite has to be the Dolce Vita blush and when this runs out I'll probably find myself purchasing the full sized.
I've never really invested in a decent pair of eyelash curlers, I've been using the same one for the past year which was the Eyeko one I got in my last years beauty advent calendar. 
They recently broke so I bought a cheap pair from Superdrugs which were absolutely rubbish! I received these from my Fiancé and I am in love! I don't think I'll ever go back to just ordinary eyelash curlers now! You can really tell the difference and these are a decent pair of eyelash curlers.
This one was a little random as it's tend to be a Summer scent, however I've always wanted this perfume for as long as I can remember. 
I tried to pick this up in the duty free on my way back from my holidays but they didn't stock it which was a bummer. So this year I asked my mother in law for it and I was dead happy when I opened it. 
The scent is very fruity and coconuty, the packaging is also gorgeous too!
Love You More Mirror
This was my favourite present this year, it's honestly so sweet and something I'm going to treasure forever.
I received this mirror from my sister, as we always joke around who loves each other more and I could of cried when I opened this.  I actually needed a new mirror too, it's like she could read my mind. This now proudly sits on top of my dresser so I can see it everyday. 
P.S: sorry that this mirror is a smidge dirty, it's dead hard to clean as the writing is in gold glitter and I don't want to scrape away the writing.
Glitter Photo Frame
Another present from the sister which I absolutely love is this water filled glitter photo frame - The picture is from our holiday in Tenerife and one of my faves of us.
The photo frame you can actually shake up for the glitter to move around, it's gorgeous!
I asked for a wedding planner this year from my Fiancé, as I thought I best start planning my wedding sooner rather than later.
I picked this one out from Not On The Highstreet and I love it, I've already started filling it out already!
The pen was from my boyfriends nan, not sure where it's from but it's gorgeous and I've been using this to fill out my wedding planner.
As I used my last CT palette so much, I decided to ask for another one this year. My best friend bought me The Vintage Vamp palette and it's gorgeous! I love all the shades in the palette and I'll be sure to get a lot of use out of this! 
Another present from the bestie - My brows are a complete nightmare, I'd probably say they take me the longest to do, so I wanted something that was fairly easy to use and also worked well. 
I read up a ton of reviews and landed up loving the look of this brow lift from CT - I have been using this everyday since now and I love how easy it is to use, the fact it has a brush on the end and also includes a highlight.
I already own Bronzed Garnet which my best friend bought me for my birthday, so I asked my Fiancé for this shade. This is a gorgeous shimmer gold shade and looks even more stunning on the eyes, I love applying this on it's own and blending it all out with a fluffy brush to soften the look. 
Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick // Bond Girl & Amazing Grace
I adore the CT lipsticks, they are my favourite by far and I'm slowly starting a collection of them. My favourite are the Matte Revolution lipsticks. I much prefer a matte lipstick and I love all the shades from CT so it was hard to pick - I picked Bond Girl (which my bestie bought for me) as it's a gorgeous deep reddish brown and I thought it would look great with a smokey eye.
I also picked Amazing Grace (bought by the Fiancé) as I'm really loving pinky nude shades lately and this is just gorgeous.
I received 3 charms this year for Christmas, the darling daisy meadow was a gift from my godmother/best friends mother and I love it! I have a ring that goes very well with this which is also from Pandora.
The other 2 charms were a complete surprise from my Sister.  We tend to set a budget for each other so we don't overspend and when I opened my present and saw the open heart charm and love AND appreciation openwork charm I was honestly in shock!! I honestly love both charms so much and was dead happy to receive them.

I also received some other fab pressies which I wanted to mention quick, I received a gorgeous Rose Gold Star Necklace and Bracelet from Astrid & Miyu from the boyfriend, LUSH Snow Fairy which is my ultimate fave. Cooking & baking books, Soap & Glory shower set, other make up bits and bobs and money.
I honestly feel so incredibly lucky to receive all of these gifts from my loved ones and feel so lucky to have so many people who love and care. I love them all very much!

*DISCLAIMER: I AM IN NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM, BRAGGING ABOUT WHAT I GOT FOR XMAS.
