My Gifts this Christmas | 2018 Edition

Disclaimer. Before we even start this post, I’m in no way sharing this post to ‘brag’ about my gifts this Christmas. I know how much I love being nosey and seeing other peoples gifts so, if you’re like me, this ones for you!

I’ve been well and truly spoilt this year, I have to admit it. I have tried to photograph most of my gifts but looking back through these photo’s, there are some that I’ve missed. One being inevitable, is in the photographs but you can’t see it because it’s a ring light!

I didn’t think Nathan was paying much attention when the darker nights came in and I was moaning about it becoming impossible to take blog photo’s around day-to-day life. But apparently he does listen sometimes and I was super shocked when I opened my ring light on Christmas morning. Super stoked to be able to take amazing photo’s without the light of day.

Anyway, I’ve tried to split these up into categories for you to have a browse and if you read my Christmas list post this you may see a few things from there appear.

My Gifts this Christmas – BEAUTY

I never thought I’d own a set of ZOEVA make up brushes, like they are the dreamiest and I’m too stingy to buy myself some so when I opened these along with the ABH Soft Glam palette I nearly cried. I want to up my make up game this year and these are definitely going to help!

I always ask for lashes and Lust bits for Christmas, cause a girl can never have too many lashes or bath products – right?

Also, Kayleigh (Nathan’s brother’s girlfriend) got me the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in the shade Nathan! How cute is that?!

My Gifts this Christmas – LIFESTYLE

I planted the seed with Nathan for the Pumpkin Spice MacBook skin from Sighh.co the day Polly released the new range, and my hard work payed off. LOOK HOW BEAUT?! I finally got a Flounder teddy too, not any Flounder teddy though. He even has my name embroidered on the little tag on his fin.

This personalised notebook I was given is so totally me, and when I opened it Kayleigh even said ‘I thought this would be perfect for your blog photo’s’. This girl knows me too well.

Also, have you guessed that I’m a Potter-head yet?

My Gifts this Christmas – FASHION

There’s a funny story behind the ‘Bad Luck’ P & Co t-shirt Nathan bought me this year. I may have bought him something pretty similar, from the same company. So we basically have his and hers t-shirts. Cute or cringe worthy? I haven’t yet decided. I also love how much Nathan know’s my taste in Doc’s, these Coppola boots are 100% me and they look super cute with the Mom jeans I got.

Have you uploaded a post or video showing what you got for Christmas this year? Link it below, I’d love to check it out.

      Honestly, I absolutely love them Brooke! They’re so soft and high quality. I’ve always been one to go for the cheaper brushes like I’ve had Revolution ones but you can definitely tell the difference! x

  7. Amazing photography!!! This has been one of the better ‘What I got for Christmas’ posts that I’ve read! Also, your Zoeva brushes look really gorgeous!

  10. I’m with you on always wanting Zoeva brushes by never being generous enough with my cash to actually purchase them. I’m glad they sound as amazing to use as they look online! You received some really amazing gifts this year. It sounds like your family know you very well!

    You got some amazing bits this year! I’m so envious of the Zoeva brushes and the Soft Glam palette, they both look so pretty. I also love Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks, the staying power is so impressive. Those Docs are incredible too, and I love your Bad Luck top. What a gorgeous selection of gifts!
