What I Got For Christmas!

This is my What I Got For Christmas Post! I have read lots of bloggers posts on what they got for Christmas because I just love to see what other people get! (I'm nosey!) So I thought I would show everyone else what I got for Christmas this year!
(picture heavy!) I have also added as many links to the items I am showing you because if your anything like me I read these types of posts so I can find things to add to my own wishlists! 

This is Mainly everything I got this year with a few little extras i'll tell you about on the way!

Overview of what I got from my Mum and Stepdad on Christmas Day!

I got a Fox doorstop! This is so cute and will be perfect for mine and my boyfriends New Home! 
This is from Wilkinson's!

They got me two pieces from Kate Spade! A little Makeup Bag and an Iphone Case! I love them both as I really wanted some things from Kate Spade but refrained from buying before Christmas myself!

They bought me this Firetrap Perfume! This is so nice! It is now in my handbag :)

They bought me this Yankee Candle in Sparkling Lemon! I really love this which is odd cause I really didn't think I was going to!

Two other gifts which surprised me was a Chanel lipstick in Rose Comete which I already own but is my favourite so having another is not a bad thing! I then also got the Victoria's Secret Travel Brush Set in this gorgeous pink case! (review to come on both!) 
The Victoria's Secret Brushes can be bought from the UK stores!

She then bought me this Braun Epilator which I am really excited to use! (review to come shortly)

I also received some Pyjamas from Primark, a Jacket from New Look and a Top from Topshop!

From my Older Sister, Brother in Law and my Niece Ella!

They got me a Nail Stamping Set! I love my acrylics so when I next get them done I am trying this out!

My sister asked what I would like from Mac this year and after not being able to buy these at the airport when I went on holiday I asked for the Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel. (review to come!)

Lastly they got me the Ted Baker Shimmering Days and Glittering Nights Palette! I really cannot wait to try this and will be uploading a review as soon as possible!

From my Younger Sister this year Megan bought me some Yankee Candle Samplers in this gift box! You get 12 samplers and 6 different scents! It includes White Gardenia, French Lavender, Beach Flowers, Midnight Jasmine, Lilac Blossom and Fresh Cut Roses! Super excited to try these as I love my Yankee Candles! 

From my Lovely Boyfriend plus some extras i'll mention at the end! Some of the VS I can't link because it was bought from America!

He bought me some Victoria's Secret Slippers! They are so comfy and I love these!

I squealed when I opened this! I love it! Its for makeup, its sparkly and its Victoria's Secret!
Massive WIN!
You can buy these in the Victoria's Secret Stores!

I have wanted one of these FOREVER and when I asked in the stores they always told me I couldn't buy one! So when I opened this I was so happy! I have a PINK Dog! 

He then surprised me with a new Michael Kors Watch! This is the Two Colour Bracelet Watch with a White Mother Of Pearl Face! It is the MK5057 and I am in love with it I took it as soon as possible to get some links taken out of it because I have such tiny wrists!

On Christmas Eve the doorbell went and I was greeted with these Flowers Martin had ordered online for me! How lovely are they!
He also bought me Two dresses from Boohoo which will hopefully be featuring in another blog post soon and some Victoria's Secret Pyjamas which I love and have already worn!

I was then given money to buy myself some things in the sales or after! Chocolate of course and received some gift cards which I hope to spend in the sales!

UGG Boot Collection

My favourite type of footwear for winter has definitely got to be some sort of boot and with me being the most fussiest footwear owner UGG boots are definitely a win for me!
In Winter I only wear UGG boots and in the Summer I only wear ballet flats and flip flops I really am that fussy though, I really do find it this hard to find shoes that I like!
So obviously my walk in wardrobe is brimming to its full capacity of UGG boots and flats! I own 6 pairs of UGG boots and have just sold 2 pairs on Ebay as I just didn't love them enough anymore!
I have a mixture of colours and styles but I have my favourites! 

I love these and usually wear these with blue skinny jeans!
These are the Tall Brown Bailey Button Triple UGG Boots

I love these and usually wear these as an everyday boot with leggings or tights and a dress!
These are the Classic Short Chocolate Brown UGG Boots

I love these and usually wear these as an everyday boot for work under my trousers!
These are the Classic Short Black UGG Boots

I love these and usually wear these with jeans mainly because of the colour!
These are the Chestnut Bailey Button UGG Boots

I love these and usually wear these as a special occasion if their is one suitable for UGG boots purely because of the light colour and to stop them being marked!
These are the Stone Bailey Button UGG Boots

I love these and usually wear these with pretty much anything! I love to wear these and these UGG boots are the latest edition to my collection, I received these from my boyfriend last Christmas!
These are the Classic Chestnut Mini UGG Boots

I couldn't honestly pick a favourite as they are all used and well loved! However my most worn are definitely the Classic Short Chocolate Brown UGG's.

Would you recommend any UGG boots? I would really like to add a bold colour or some sequined ones to my collection!

Product Empties #1

This is my product empties from the past 4 months I should have actually put two other perfumes into this post but they do really have a couple more days worth of use in them! This means that technically I have run out of 4 perfumes all at once! I don't have much in the means of empties other than perfumes which is quite odd for me because I usually run out of everything all at once! I really hope I receive some perfumes for Christmas else I'm going to be running quite low!

Vera Wang Love Struck Floral Rush-
I bought this perfume after going through 3 bottles of the Normal Love Struck perfume I absolutely love the normal one, so I thought I would buy this one and it's a close second for me! It really is nice and fresh and I love trying out new perfumes!
Would I buy again? Yes
Rimmel Scandleyes Mascara-
I don't often wear mascara but when I do I like to switch it around and try a different one each time just to find which one suits me best, my favourite is Benefits and after trying this one im sad to say Benefits is still top purely because for me this Rimmel one wasn't the best to suit me.
Would I buy again? No sorry!
Sure Radiant Deodorant-
I have been wearing Sure for years! I have to say I have never really tried any other deodorant purely because if you like something that much then why stray?! I will continue to pick this up forever I think as I really couldn't say anything bad about this!
Would I buy again? YES!
Miss Dior Perfume-
This has been my baby throughout the last few months and when I finished it a couple of days ago for me it was a very sad day! I really loved this perfume and I am strongly considering repurchasing before Christmas but I will try and stop myself because after all I may receive some on the day!
Would I buy again? I really want to!
Mac Studio Powder-
I'm not a massive powder fan but I do always carry one around in my handbag just encase I need to quickly stop any shine on my face but I have to say this one by Mac really is nice and it doesn't feel to heavy on my skin!
Would I buy again? Maybe

Wishlist #5

Today my wishlist consists of 4 items I would love to get for Christmas or to be able to buy them myself in the New Year with some Christmas (25th) or Birthday (27th) money!

Hair Extensions- So I used to wear hair extensions religiously but then I just stopped wearing them, after seeing a few girls post about them I've decided I would love to start wearing them again because my hair never seems to grow past a certain length anymore!
Mulberry Bayswater Double Zip Tote- I have a feeling I may be getting this bag from my lovely mamma for Christmas or my Birthday however at the steep price of £1,500 I don't think I'll be buying this for myself if I don't get it! I am saving for a Mortgage after all!
Michael Kors Watch- I already have a rose gold Michael Kors watch but when I saw this Silver and Gold one with a Pearl face I fell in love all over again! It really is lovely!
Chloe Miniatures Perfume Set- I really LOVE Chloe perfumes and seeing as I don't have too many perfumes left (20) oops! I would really like to try this miniatures set as that way I can find out which one I like the most and then buy the full sized one! I really love this idea as its hard to tell whether you will like the perfume if you smell it in the shop as their is so many other scents floating around!

What will you spend your Christmas money on?!

Blue Basil Brownies Review

My boyfriend decided to treat me a few weeks back, we had previously been bought some of the Blue Basil Brownies before, this time I wanted some all to myself and ones I could pick all for me so none went to waste as when you receive any type of chocolate you don't want any being wasted!
This time I got to pick all of the types I wanted, he bought me the 12 piece box and I chose from the 7 normal flavors available- Classic Chunky Chocolate Brownie, Chunky White Chocolate Brownie, Coffee and Walnut Brownie and Chocwork Orange Brownie.
They arrived just 2 days later after my boyfriend placed the order! They come beautifully packaged as you can see from the photos I took, I was really please with the packaging and delivery time I have to say for the price you pay you do get a lot from them!
When I opened the packaging from around the Brownies mine and my boyfriends faces both lit up, the brownies just looked perfect and made me even more excited to eat them!
My favourite was the Chunky White Chocolate Brownie I really could have eaten a whole 12 piece box full of just them, for a box of 12 the price is £17.75.
If you can't resist trying new things or would like to buy them for yourself or as a gift you can visit their website here.

Don't they just look amazing!
I think you should order yourself some!

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir Perfume

This is my new Perfume that I have added to my collection! Yes just before Christmas, however I have had this perfume just over a month now and have been using it religiously over the past month and I just can't put it away! This may be my new favourite perfume from Juicy Couture.

I bought myself Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir 30ml
What they say-
An enticing interpretation of the original best-selling Viva La Juicy fragrance, Viva La Juicy Noir highlights the succulent ripe berry notes and gourmand accents of the classic scent with a touch of honeysuckle and sandalwood.

I love the bottle of this perfume, when I saw this one online I knew I would have it straight away, I am a sucker for new packaging (every brands dream) I have owned all the main Juicy Couture perfumes but this is now my favourite and the packaging helps with that! The pink and black looks so good together, however the only chance I get to showing this one off is when I take it out of my bag as its so handy to carry around at 30ml and I couldn't be without it now!

You can get this perfume from lots of different retailers but I got my from The Perfume Shop here.

My Top 6 DVD Boxsets For Christmas

So I thought I was upload this post before Christmas so that if you read it and like a box set or you think you know someone else who would like one of them you can buy it!
I love finding new DVD box sets to watch, I have watched quite a few but I've put together my top 6 for all of my lovely subscribers.
Ill start with some of my favourites to my absolute LOVE!

6. Bones Series 1-5

A little about Bones from Web Source-
Bones is an American crime comedy-drama television series that premiered on Fox in the United States on September 13, 2005. The show is based on forensic anthropology and forensic archaeology, with each episode focusing on an FBI case file concerning the mystery behind human remains brought by FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) to the forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel).

This is one of the box sets I have owned for nearly 2 years! I have watched these DVD's non stop and I really love the series, these are really good if you liked CSI or anything like that, I also loved these as im studying Forensic Investigation at university!

5. Batman Trilogy

A little about Batman from Web source-
 It stars Christian Bale as Batman along with Michael CaineLiam NeesonKatie HolmesGary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman. The film reboots the Batman film series, telling the origin story of the character from Bruce Wayne's initial fear of bats, the death of his parents, his journey to become Batman, and his fight against Ra's al Ghul's plot to destroy Gotham City.

My boyfriend bought this box set for himself but I watched it with him and since then I watched it over and over like a mad woman! I cant believe how much I actually liked this box set as before I really didn't think I would, I suggest if you don't think you would like it just watch it I think you'll change your mind about this one!

4. Ghost Whisperer Full Collection

A little about Ghost Whisperer from Web source-
The series follows the life of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who has the ability to see and communicate with ghosts. While trying to live as normal a life as possible—she is married and owns an antique store—Melinda helps earthbound spirits resolve their problems and cross over into the light, or the spirit world. Her tasks are difficult and at times she struggles with people who push her away and disbelieve her ability. In addition, the ghosts are mysterious and sometimes menacing in the beginning and Melinda must use the clues available to her to understand the spirits' needs and help them.

I have had this Collection for what seems like FOREVER and I just cannot part with this! I have watched them over and over and I really love it, it seems really cheesy to begin with because of the ghost part but it really is good! You need to watch them to believe me!

3. Harpers Island

A little about Harpers Island from Web source-
The show takes place on Harper's Island, where John Wakefield went on a killing spree and murdered a number of people before supposedly being killed by the island sheriff, Charlie Mills. One of the victims was the sheriff's wife. After her death, Sheriff Mills sends their daughter, Abby, to live with family in LA and she hasn't returned since. After 7 years, Abby is finally returning to the island for her best friend Henry's wedding but now the killing starts again and everyone is a suspect. The guests manage to unlock secrets of the island and of Wakefield as the series progresses.

I bought this box set after reading that Fleur de Force recommended it! I bought it that night and when it arrived me my boyfriend and my sister ordered a takeaway and sat down to watch the full series as their is only one, I have to say even though this is a horror type box set and really don't do horrors this wasn't that bad and I really could bare even the parts I thought were ''scary'' this is definitely something I would now recommend to everyone!

2. Pretty Little Liars Series 1

A little about Pretty Little Liars from Web source-
Set in the fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario), Hanna Marin (Ashley Benson), Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell), and Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale), who are four girls whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their queen beeAlison DiLaurentis (Sasha Pieterse). One year later, they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure using the name "A", who threatens to expose their secrets. At first, they think it's Alison herself, but after her body is found, the girls realize that someone else knows their secrets—including long-hidden ones they thought only Alison knew. "A" also stalked Alison, and the girls continue to discover more and more information about "A" and Alison's disappearance—all while risking their lives

I have only watched half of series 1 of this through Love Film but I am already addicted even my boyfriend watches some of the episodes with me! This is so good and if you haven't wanted to see this then you have clearly been living under a rock like i had been for the past 2 years! 

1. Gossip Girl Full Collection

A little about Gossip Girl from Web source-
The series revolves around the lives of privileged young adults on Manhattan's Upper East Side in New York City. The series begins with the return of Upper East Side it girl Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) from a mysterious stay at a boarding school in Cornwall, Connecticut. Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester), whom creators describe as the queen at the center of their chess game, is a longtime friend and occasional rival of Serena's, and the queen bee of Constance Billard School's social scene. The story also follows Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick), the bad boy of the Upper East Side; "golden boy" Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford), Chuck's best friend and Blair's boyfriend for many years. However, their relationship had been rocky ever since Serena left for boarding school.

This is my favourite box set I own I have the full series and I have watched them all 100 times not even and exaggeration! I really cannot rave enough about it and it helps even more when your boyfriend looks a little like Chuck Bass and when you just want to be Blair Waldorf! This is really a box set everyone needs in their lives its good to watch when your sick or when your having a girly night in my boyfriend even watched the last series with me! Its such a dreamy lifestyle and when I went to NY it made me so happy to see where GG was filmed.
