I loveee reading these kind of posts so there’s no way i’m not doing one myself this year. I know a lot of people don’t like them but if you are one of those, simply don’t read. I didn’t get too many beauty bits this year which is just as well really as I have far too much. I did get a fair bit of useful things for Uni. If you want to see what I received last year click here or for what I brought my friends and family this year click here.
As per usual my stocking was stuffed with loads of useful nice bits and things I like to eat. Yes, I was very excited for the ear plugs, lemsip, and BBQ sauce! I also got a pack of cupcake bath bombs which I can’t wait to use. At an event earlier this year I discovered the Mackenzie and George scarf fastener which I thought was gorgeous. My Mum sneaked back later in the day to pick it up for me, along with a couple of scarves to wear it with.
As I said, I got a few useful gifts this year which included my main present, a Dolce Gusto coffee machine, with a couple of extra packets of the pods. This will be so great for my Uni hall and house next year, I always get coffee in the morning. I also got a new frying pan and pair of oven gloves as I managed to set fire to my previous ones (oops). Lastly there’s a blender which will again go great in my kitchen away from home. I love making smoothies.
No students Christmas would be complete without alcahol, I received a box of Chardonnay, a huge bottle of Smirnoff vodka and a tonne of frozen cocktails- perfect! Beauty wise I received a couple of gift sets including a Nivea and a Ted Baker. My friend picked me up a couple of dry shampoos which is great because I never have enough, I also got a couple of Christmassy bomb cosmetics bath bombs that smell insanely good.
I’ve been wanting a pair of heated rollers for ages so I was so glad to receive these. I do need a little bit of practice on application but the few testers i’ve done have left my hair looking insane. I’m getting my hair done in a couple of weeks so look out for a lot of hairselfies on instagram!
I don’t think i’ve ever previously mentioned this on here but for a while now i’ve been interning with Hayley from Londonbeautyqueen. She kindly sent me over a little Christmas box full of products and it has to be one of my favourite gifts, It includes a 3 month subscription to Glossy box, some Clarins, Elizabeth Arden and some Pixi make up. I can’t wait to try all of this out!
A few extra bits I got include, some chocolates, cute slogan glasses, a little soap and glory set, Harry Potter pyjarmas, a little bit of money, a gift card to starbucks, a book, make up palette, honey cashews, nail polish and some gloves!
