What I got for Christmas

When it comes to these posts I am really nosey and like to see what others got for Christmas. 
This mainly is so that it can help me come up with ideas for gifts for other people at later date or even
to just add to my wishlist of items I would love to receive. 
I am the same when it comes to reading what people got for their birthday too. 

I know a lot people love these posts but I know some people don't
so if you don't than this post isn't for you. 
I also feel that I have to say this year after year when I do these posts
 that I am not in anyway trying to show off and am thankful for any gifts I receive. 

You can see my Christmas wish list here and I was lucky enough to get the majority of the items that was on my list which wasn't expected as it was just to give people ideas. 


Anyone that knows me well enough knows that I love to read. 
My mother and step father in law got me these two books : 
Giovanna Fletcher - Dream a little dream 
and
- Dinah Jefferies - The tea planters wife.

I didn't ask for these books but they definitely made good choices 
as I've not read either of these books before and they are right up my street. 

Stuart and I also received a kitchen tool turn about which was on my wishlist
awhile ago. This was before I got a personalized utensil pot from getting personal last year. 
So we are going to use it for something else possibly to store pens in or something or other. 
Either way its going to come in handy. 



My sister got me the make up brushes that I had been wanting for quite awhile now. 
I've been getting into make up a lot more recently so having some good brushes is a must.


My sister also got me a book which was on my amazon wishlist. 
The Cinderella Murder. 
I have been getting into thrillers and crime novels recently and this one looks good. 


My Mum got me two items which were also on my list
Adele's new album 25 and Make Up Revolution eye shadow palette 
in flawless matte. This is a great pallette I can use for everyday make up as the shades
are all wearable. 


Then Stuart got me the Make Up Revolution eye shadow palette flawless
which has the shame shades but they are shimmer so ideal for using when
I want a bit of sparkle or for a special occasion. 


Stuart also got me that Kilner glass that I really wanted from Wilko. 
They do them in pink and blue and I got the blue one that I wanted. 
I love drinking my Dr pepper in there and also lemonade. 


I was also very lucky to get The Blogger Planner which I had seen on other blogs and
just fell in love with. I am thrilled with it and so far its keeping me organised. 



Then I got a Himalayan Salt lamp. 
I had been debating whether to get one or not and glad that Stuart got one for me
not just for the health benefits but also as its so pretty too. 


I also got some other gifts not pictured: 
Blake got me a Pandora style bracelet which I love and have not taken off since Christmas day. 
I love it so much. 

Then I also got some gift cards from my Father in law and Stuart to spend in Peacocks and
also my Nan got me an Amazon gift card.


What did you get for Christmas? I'd love to know.

  11. I got the bloggers planner for my birthday and it is fabulous and a great tool. Only problem I have is that when I fill in the plan for the month, it changes so much due to unexpected things, new work collabs etc so I'm finding it difficult to keep in order.... I need to find a way to not do that.
