What I Got for Christmas (from my friends) 2017

So, this is a very early what I got for Christmas but I'm posting this right now for a few reasons.

1. I'm not going to be here in the Christmas holidays as we're going to Dubai, so it'll be hard to take all the pictures and write this post then
2. We don't really celebrate Christmas as a family. We do put up a tree but I don't get specific Christmas presents so this is all stuff from my friends.
3. Since we're already on holiday, my friends have already given me my presents so I can share them with you already as there's no point off putting of this post.

There you have it. I hope that explains why this post is up early, but I guess that it'll help you get in the Christmassy spirit and maybe give you some super last minute present ideas. I really want to make this a tradition on my blog and of course, y'all know that I'm SOOO GRATEFUL for ALL these presents. My friends were so thoughtful and I LOVE everything I received this year as always. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all of them (but they're probably not reading this). ILYSM!!


Maybelline Colour Show Nailpolish (Shade: 441-Hanging from the Chandelier )

This is a top coat kinda nailpolish that would look great over black nailpolish. Defo gonna be painting my nails with this on New Year's.

Montage Jeunesse Deep Sea Peel-Off Face Mask

I love a good face mask and the best part about these singles is that they're easy to travel with, so you can take them wherever you go. I'll give you an update on this once I've used it, but I have used masks from this brand before and they are really good. (high expectations pls don't disappoint me face mask)

Zoella Wonder Hand Hand Cream, Leafy+Lovely Hand Lotion with Shea Butter, Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy Rosewater Cream, Loua Gelee Royale Lip Mask and the Body+Soul Pomegranate and Cranberry Wellness Set (includes Hand Cream, Face Mask, Body Lotion, Shower Gel and Bath Bomb)

One of my friend's got me this UH-FREAKIN-MAZIN little gift set + other random hand-picked products. It all came in a cute makeup bag which will be great for travel purposes. It's the perfect size. I'm so excited to try all these products and reviews will be coming soon!

Unicorn Contouring Brush

She also got me this crazy cute unicorn brush. Like can we just take a moment to admire how beautiful it is. It's so pretty, I don't even want to use it.

L'Oreal Paris Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara

I've never tried a mascara from L'Oreal before and I've only heard great things about them so I'm pumped to give this a go. I also recently picked up the Baby Roll mascara and am yet to try that one too.


Unicorn Shower Cap (Flying Tiger)

How freaking cute is this? When I opened this, I literally burst out laughing. I'm gonna look bomb ass in the shower.

Nose Sharpener (Flying Tiger)

This is very self-explanatory and I don't want to say more. Just please admire the greatness of this sharpener and this store.

Rituals Spring Garden Candle

This is probably the cutest candle I've seen. It's got Vetiver and Clary Sage which smell amazing. It's meant to create equilibrium and have a calming effect. The cutest part is that there's a little quote on the side which I think is such an amazing thought that I haven't seen before.

Fluffy Socks (Primark set of 2 and Brandy Melville Velvet Socks)

I think socks are just a classic Christmas present. You can't have enough socks right? These are very soft and fluffy and I know I'm saying this for everything, but I loooove them.

Blue and Pink Scarf (Primark) and White Scarf (Primark)

I get a scarf every year and I'm not complaining. These will be my go to scarves for next Winter so they will be saved and stored away. Primark have some amazing scarves. The one I used this year was also from there and it's very soft and the quality is really nice.


Brandy Melville Choker/Necklace 

This is the first thing I own from Brandy and I luuurve it so much. Imma save up and buy more jewellery from them.

SIX Snowflake Necklace, SIX Swarovski Gem Earrings, SIX Triangle Bracelet

My jewellery game is gonna be SOOO good this new year. All of these pieces are so beautiful and the two necklaces would look so good layered with each other.

HEMA Earrings Set

You can never have enough stud earrings. There are two round ones and one pair that are an arrow style. These will be perfect for day to day use.


The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur (Urban Outfitters)

GIRRLLS expect a review sometime very, VERY soon because this book literally swept me off my feet and you're gonna want to read this asap because your life will change. Trust me on this one and add it to your wishlist if it isn't too late. I neeeed Milk and Honey right now. Like this second. This is one of my favourite presents. I'M IN LOOOVE!

I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas and receive all the presents you want, and most importantly have a great day with your family because that's what Christmas is all about!
