What I got for Christmas 2015

Hey everyone! The last time I spoke to you was on Christmas day where I posted a quick fotd and ootd which I will link HERE. But I hope you all had an amazing Christmas surrounded by your loved ones, and got everything you wanted. I love to read and watch 'what I got for Christmas' blog posts and YouTube videos after Christmas because I'm just extremely nosey and I like to see what everyone else got. So for today's post I though I would do one of those for you guys out there that just like me, like to have a little nose at what other people got. I'm not going to show you everything but just a small selection of things I think you would be interested in seeing. Also just going to throw the usual disclaimer out there that I am not trying to brag or boast in any way at all and I'm incredibly greatful for everything I got, I just know lots of you will love reading this sort of stuff.
So to start off with I'm going to show you a few things that my friends from school got me, These are only a few things and I'm incredibly grateful to all my friends who gave me amazing gifts. But as none of them know about my blog I'm not going to say who they are from because they might not want that out there and I want my blog to stay a secret for now.

-Some realllllllyyyy cute socks from New Look that are covered in Christmas puddings and that are absolutely adorable!
-A gift set from Makeup Revolution that had a red nail polish in, a intense colour lipgloss that was also in a gorgeous red shade and a lipstick that matches the colour of the lipgloss.
-A pj's in a bag set from Boux Avenue which is a basically a set of really cute red pyjamas with patterns on that fold up and go in a matching bag that make them really easy to travel with.
-A mac lipstick in the shade Brave which I absolutely love and will now treasure along with my other Mac lipsticks.
-Lots of chocolate including a giant bag of heroes and some nerds which are like my favourite things ever.
-An array of different bath products ranging from bath bombs and fizzers to bath salts and crystals.
Now moving on to the presents I got from good ol Santa and my family. Again I won't show you everything but just a small selection of some of my favourite things.

 -A really cute makeup bag from Primark that was full of beauty bits like face masks and cotton pads which is perfect because I really wanted a deep makeup bag so I could take lots of makeup with me when travelling
-Next I have the Real techniques eye brushes set which is great because I wanted some more eye brushes and I don't have any of the ones in this collection already.
-A travel mug with a gold pattern on it which I wanted because I wanted a cup I could use to take hot chocolate in on the school bus in the mornings.
-The One Direction CD and a calender because what is Christmas without a bit of your favourite artists merch?
-The single pan Mac eyeshadow in Naked lunch which I asked my parents to get me as I've been filling up a Mac quad palette and I needed one more shadow to complete it and this was the one I've been eyeing up for a while.
-The Mac lipstick in Brick O la which I may have helped my granny pick because like the eyeshadow I've been eyeing it up for a while and I thought Christmas would be the best time to ask for it.
-A big box of Lindors because they are mine and my brothers favourite chocolates for Christmas time and Christmas just wouldn't be complete without them.
-A book by Sophie Kinsella called finding Audrey which I'm looking forward to reading as I'm not a big reader but I would love to try and get in to it more.
- My main present which was a linx 1010 tablet (I think) which came with a keyboard you attach to it and so it's just like a laptop but a mini one. It's going to be perfect for college because it's so compact it will fit in my handbag!
-Along with all of that stuff I also got money, vouchers and then things like chocolate and face masks and lots of other little things.

So like I said I'm so grateful for all my presents and I had a great Christmas and I hope all you guys did as well and got everything you wanted and spent lots of time with your family. Also I'm really sorry about the awful quality of all these photos, it's been so gloomy outside that there as been almost no natural lighting at all for me to use. Look out for my NYE get ready with me that I will be posting on New Years Eve and thanks for reading.
