What I got for Christmas

Before writing about what I got for Christmas, I would just like to wish you all a Happy New Year! May this year truly bring you happiness and all the gifts the world can bring to you.

It's been nice having a break from all the social media for a while but having said that I've missed writing posts about the things I am most passionate about or just things I like to share with you all.
I promise that this yeah I will be on my A game and try to improve on my posts.

I would just like to put a little disclaimer out there just before you look on to what I was so grateful to have received over Christmas. I am not bragging in any shape or form, I just love watching videos and blog posts on what people have gotten for Christmas and thought it would be fun to also share with you guys what I got. It's also in some way a Haul of things that you can get inspiration for. As it's January Sales time you might be able to get these for half the price, I'm sure all of these are still available in stores.   

Here is what I got for Christmas: 

 All of these items are from Primark from the Make up bag to the bracelet, mirror and necklace. 

This water bottle as you can see in the picture it's from New Look it also came with some pastel pink fuzzy socks! 

This wash bag is from Style & Grace - The English gift company. In the Wash Bag came a Eau de Parfum in the name Utopia it has a subtle sweet scent for those who are wondering how it smells. It also comes with a Hand Cream; Body Wash and Body lotion in the scent Pink Peppercorn the same as the perfume.  

I love the fact that the packaging has hints of rose gold in it.
