What I Got for Christmas 2016

I have seen so many people on my twitter timeline saying how much they love the “What I Got for Christmas’ posts. I have already filmed a video which went live yesterday, so if you prefer watching these sorts of videos you can see it here.  But if you prefer to read it, then here it is, what I got for Christmas. 


I had been super spoilt this year, and I am sos o grateful for everything that was gifted to me, form my family and friends.

Spectrum Glam Clam Collection This gorgeous brush set was given to my by my Dad&Stepmum. I did ask for this and is possibly the most gorgeous and beautiful brush set I have ever seen in my life. I am so so happy that I received this as I really need a new set, and these are just perfect.


Books/DVDs I was gifted these books and DVDs by different people, friends and family. I Received the Britney autobiography as I am totally obsessed with Britney and love her to pieces, so this was a really thoughtful gift. I then also received Tanya Bakes as I really want to get into baking a bit more and this is the perfect book for it. My best friend Kirsty gifted me Me Before You (Which I also got her too!) We saw this in the cinema together and it’s such a great film. Also Amelia Clarke is my favourite actress ever! And of course, Finding Dory as its possibly one of the best films in the whole entire world.


Smellies What girl doesn’t love smellies for Christmas?! My best friend got me the Zoella diffuser in Lazy Days which is my favourite sent from the Zoella collection, and my mum bought me this gorgeous set from The While Company which contains a small candles, a room diffuser and room spray all in the scent ‘Winter’ which is possibly my favourite winter fragrance ever. Anyone can win my heart over with The White Company. 

Drinking things? I absolutely love my Iced caramel latte’s and hot chocolates, so these cups/mugs/travel mugs were perfect for me. The Justin Bieber and white mason jar are perfect to have my homemade iced caramel lattes in, and I will definitely be having my hot chocolates in the Zoella travel mug.


Polaroid Camera This present was a complete surprise for me. My mum aged to pick this up for me after I had mentioned it a couple of times. It’s perfect as it’s so cute and I love collection photographs. My plan wth this is to make a scrapbook (which I also received with this as a gift) of all the polaroid pictures I make with this camera. I will only be using it on special and memorable occasions!


The Happiness Planner I had seen this everywhere for a while and have realllyyyy wanted one for ages. This is perfect if you love stationary, writing your feelings down or just being organised (or like to feel organised) It’s perfect and I am so happy with it!

Kate Spade card holder I also got this really cute Kate Spade card holder. This is perfect to put my blog/youtube business cards  in. Who doesn’t love Kate Spade?

Chalk Board I love this cute chalk board. It looks like a movie ticket and will look super cute in my bedroom.


Smoothie Maker I am making plans in January which are quite exciting, and I had mentioned a smoothie maker would really help and be so useful. So my mum picked this up for me, you make your smoothies and then the jar with the mixture in can also be used as a bottle so you can take it out and about with you. I was so happy when I opened this as I had wanted one for a while.

Make-Up I received four make-up palettes for christmas which I was really happy about. The first two are from Zoeva, which I have never tried before but am really looking forward to using. They are both from the Rose Gold collection, ones eyeshadow and ones contour/highlight. The eyeshadow c=shades are totally down my street so I can’t wait to try this out. They look beautiful.

I also received this NYX Ultimate palette in smokey & highlight. I asked for this from one of my best friends, and she got it spot on. These colours are totally me. The nudes and browns, and I can’t wait to play with the darker colours like the blue and green.

This last palette I got is from Too Faced, it called Totally Cute and I think is limited edition. I love this palette and I can’t wait to experiment with the different shades.


Shoes My main present from my boyfriend were these gorgeous Timberland boots. I had hinted (quite a lot) about these and the boy did good. They are in this unusual khaki green colour, which I am just so obsessed about. I can’t wait to style these and I am sure they will definitely be featured on my blog sooner or later.

What did you guys get for Christmas this year? I hope you all have a magical day and ate too much!

Love always, G x
