Happy New Year and What I Got for Christmas

Another week late post. It's starting to become a trend isn't it? Anyway, the usual disclaimer that I'm not bragging about what I got. It's simply that I love reading these posts (because I'm a nosy gal) and also wanted to see how creative I could get with the photography (answer: not very!). I'm not going to look up how much everything was as I don't want to know but I'll try and give as much detail on the items as I possibly can.

What I Got For Christmas

Make Up
I didn't get much make-up this year. I don't think my family really know of my secret make-up addiction. What I did get though were these amazing lip colours. When I opened Mac (Girl About Town) from my sister, I squealed and even teared up a little bit. This is my first Mac lipstick and I couldn't be happier with the colour. I think picking a lip colour for someone else is a bit tricky, with personal preference and skintone to take into account but she did an amazing job! Even more so when I found out she had to order it so couldn't even swatch it! I also got Clinique's Chubby Stick in Pudgy Peony from my cousin, which also induced another squeal. Another perfect lip colour choice!

What I Got For Christmas

What I Got For Christmas

I got these boots from Tesco from my Nana. I think she saw me traipsing around with wet feet (Converse don't hold up in the rain well) and decided to put an end to it! Thank goodness! From my aunt and uncle, I got this Matalan tartan onesie and I haven't been out of it since! It's made of that slightly fuzzy material (anyone know what I'm talking about?) and is so cosy. I love the fact that it has a hood too. Also from my aunt and uncle, I got this amazing techy warm set. Making perfect sense as usual. It included headphones incorporated in ear muffs, touchscreen gloves and a little phone sock. I probably won't use the phone sock but the others are coming in handy already! My other aunt got me this thick infinity scarf from Sainsbury's; another item that has hardly left me. I've even taken to wearing it in the house because I love it so much!
The slippers are actually from Next. They have a cushioned sole and feel so plush!

Other things
My mum got me a diary and calendar set with apt make-up quotes inside (she knows me well!) and also we're going to go to the theatre in the New Year which is exciting. I haven't been in years! What is Christmas without a selection box, this year a Galaxy one. The other bits are from a Next Cashmere Gift Set from my sister, which smells quite good.

I've taken a few things back to university already as it's less to bring back in the new year, so I did get a few more cheeky gifts including:
Cadbury's Chocolate
Backpack (seen in this haul- LINK)
Matcing calendar to the diary
Amazing scrapbook with lots of pictures of me and my friend

I'd like to say a big thank you for all my presents (if any of my family happen to be reading this) and that I'm so grateful for all of it. I definitely did so well this year (present wise), despite that not being what Christmas is really about. I enjoyed spending some good quality time with my family and I cherished this even more this year, as there was a Grandad shaped hole in it for the first time.

I hope you all had an amazing time and HAPPY NEW YEAR. What did you get for Christmas?
