What I got for Christmas 2015!

Happy New Year to all of my lovely readers! Let's hope that 2016 is our best year yet! Today, I thought I would share some of the beauty gifts that I received for Christmas. I was thoroughly spoilt and I'm excited to try so many new products. The usual disclaimer - I'm in no way bragging, just excited to share and I love reading posts like this. Let's get started! 

First up (and probably the most exciting gifts for me!) are two scents from Jo Malone: Nectarine Blossom & Honey and Pomegranate Noir. The Pomegranate Noir set contains a hand & body wash and body creme as well as the fragrance. These fragrances are completely different to anything I already own and I will probably layer them with other Jo Malone scents because neither one is exactly to my taste on their own with Nectarine Blossom being very sweet and Pomegranate Noir being slightly spicey/clove-scented but I am looking forward to experimenting with them to find the right balance.

I was also lucky enough to receive two other perfumes: Chloe Love Story & Armani Acqua Di Gioia Eau Fraiche. The Chloe perfume came in a set with the matching body lotion, which I really love because layering the scent makes it last longer. I also love how pretty the bottles are. I was delighted to receive Acqua Di Gioia because I finished a bottle last year and hadn't gotten around to repurchasing.

I was so excited & appreciative to receive a GHD Platinum hair styler because my previous GHD was 7 years old and had definitely seen better days! A new GHD has been on my wishlist for such a long time so I am delighted to finally have a new one!

I absolutely love This Works Sleep + Pillow Spray and cannot be without it so was delighted to receive a new large bottle of that as a back-up. It is an absolute must-have for me.

In terms of make-up, I received five products: two MAC lipsticks: Syrup & Plumful, Nars One Shocking Moment Studio Cheek Palette, also the new Gwen Stefani/Urban Decay palette and finally, BECCA Backlight Priming Filter. All of these products were on my wishlist and I am so excited to start wear them. The samples of Gwen Stefani lipsticks that are included with the palette are stunning so I am looking forward to that release!

I must be looking very pale these days, because I received two bottles of St Tropez Dark Tanning Lotion! I haven't used St Tropez tan in quite a while but I used to love it back in the day so I'm looking forward to bronzing myself with that.

I received quite a few skincare items: Pixi Glow Mist, Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm, Omorovicza Gold Flash Firming Serum, Clarins Rebalancing Collection and an Estee Lauder skincare set. Some of these are products I have used before & love and some are totally new to me so I am really looking forward to using them & will, no doubt, be reviewing them for you over the coming months.

I hope you all really enjoyed the holiday period and have a fantastic 2016! I would love to know what beauty gifts you received for Christmas - please tell me in the comments below!
