What I Got For My Birthday&Christmas 2017!

I know what you're thinking and yes Christmas does seem like a long time ago, however, my birthday was at the beginning of this month so I thought I'd tie the two together and do a joint what I got post.
What I Got For My Birthday&Christmas!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio in Peachy Love
Ever since I saw these launch in America I had been eagerly waiting for them to come to the UK. The colours in this trio are beautiful and right up my street with the mauvy pinks and oranges. Plus you literally need the tiniest amount on your brush meaning it's going to last me a lifetime.

Benefit Hoola Quickie Contour Stick
Emma raved on and on about this and the more she mentioned it in her posts the more I wanted to get my hands on it and I'm so glad I've finally got it. It's everything that she described it would be like, creamy, the perfect colour and extremely blendable.

Real Techniques Complexion Sponge
My beauty blender goes through the wars, especially when I 'forget' to wash it as it just gets filthy which is why I thought it was a good idea to get another sponge. I actually ended up receiving two of these, one from my boyfriend and one from my sister which was canny.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Face Mist
I've been through a couple of these now and since I ran out of my last one, a while ago, I was relying on someone being generous enough to purchase one for me, with my points card of course! It's my favourite facial mist that I've tried so far.

Calvin Klein Underwear
Whos life is complete without a cheeky CK set in there lives? I was lucky enough to be gifted the grey bralette and knickers set which by the way are super comfy to wear.
What I Got For My Birthday&Christmas!
Dorothy Perkins Cross Body Black Chain Bag and Oasis Leather Lily Snake Purse
I got these two gifts given together and they pair wonderfully well with each other due to them both being black in colour. I love the chain detailing on the front of the bag, whereas the snakeskin pattern on the purse is so detailed and great for carrying around spare change.

The amount of food I got for Christmas and my birthday was ludicrous, it's going to take me at least half the year to get through it all. I got a cheese set, because who doesn't love cheese, two sets of sweet shop sweets from Superdrug, Thorntons chocolates, fudge, Toblerone and a glass of Baileys. Also to go along with the Baileys I got a personalised baileys glass with my name on it!

Aside from the beauty, fashion and food items one thing that was a big present for me was my driving experience for one. A lot of you won't know this about me unless you follow me on twitter, but I love lorries, I've always been fascinated by Eddie Stobarts and a dream of mine is to drive a lorry one day. So I'm super excited to be able to do that sometime this year.

I'd just like to thank everyone once again for all the goodies that I received, obviously, I can't mention everything in this post but it's just a roundup. I hope you had a brilliant Christmas...even if it was ages ago, and I hope your new year has started well. Just out of interest when is your birthday, is it close to any seasonal events?
