What I Got For Christmas 2015

I have a love-hate relationship with these blog posts. On one hand I love seeing what my friends got for Christmas, the cute little Knicks knacks that are going to make them really happy. They are not boasting or showing off in any way and they are truly lovely to read but then there are the ones who got an iPad, and iPhone, Victoria secret underwear, Ugg boots and just about every other famous brand you can think of, they are not so enjoyable to read! I also hate these posts because it makes me question ' did I get enough?!' Well, of course, I got a bloody enough! You only have to look at the pictures from those boxing day floods in the north to realise how lucky I am! I hope you enjoy this post! If you don't enjoy these posts, no one is making you read them!

What I Got For Christmas 2015 Blog Posts UK Youtube


My main present from my parents this year was a gold, 16GB iPod touch! Omg, I am obsessed with the colour of this thing, its STUNNING! I can now use emoji which I am rather excited for!

The second main present this year from my grandparents was this beautiful Monochrome coat from Matalan, I think I am in love!

Also related to beauty, my auntie got me MAC'S velvet teddy lipstick. I have not yet used it because I needed 200 photos of it from every angle #bloggerproblems

Within the fashion department mother got me this super pretty hat and scarf both of which are super pretty and I love the colours! These are both from Primark I think!

Oh, I also got some really cool filters for my camera! This kit came with more cleaning stuff but also a UV lens, a neutral density filter, a grey grad filter and a polarising filter!

My best friend got me this super Cosy and snuggly blanket which when it is not being used for its proper purpose will make a great blog photo background!

Of course, no Christmas is complete without some chocolate! I got the standard Lindt Santa, little bears and stars but I also got this massive hand-made selection of Lindt balls which I am not going to lie was hard to save for the photo because I just wanted to eat them all! (I also got the selection box from Cadbury's which I am not happy about because they took the flake out) oh and I got a Terry's chocolate orange!

And that's it! I always feel so awkward doing these posts but I know you guys wanted to see it!

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and I wish you all the best for a happy and healthy 2016 xx

  21. Oh wow Nicole! You received some really lovely gifts, I'm sure you'll have a great time spending those gift cards! I must ask as I know you'll give your honest opinion, could you let me know what you think of the MAC lipstick once you've tried it? I very nearly bought a couple today but the sales assistants seemed a bit rude so it put me off. I swatched a few on my hand and they didn't last very long so I was quite underwhelmed by them. Would love to know what you think?

    1. Thank you! Yes I definitely will! I actually brought two more MAC lipsticks with my gift card however technical issues occurred and the website didn't accept my gift card so it all went on my mums credit card, not good! So I have to cancel the order and do it again over the phone so I will get them towards the end of next week! I was going to do a post about all of them at the end of January but I could let you know how I get on with velvet teddy if you like x

    2. Oh no, that's annoying! I hope it gets sorted soon and you like your new lipsticks! I'd love to know how you get on with it, look forward to seeing them in a post aswell! Xx

      Delete
    3. I actually got it all sorted in the end sooner than expected! They have all arrived so the post will go up towards the end of the month! As regards to velvet teddy I really like! The colour lasts for ages, it's such a wearable colour as well- It's a tad bit drying but I did wear it with a lip balm underneath! When I have tested it some more, I will let you know what I think x
