Hello lovelies! 
I'm going to do my 'What I got for Christmas' post today, I really hope you enjoy it and although I don't think anyone should need to justify themselves, we all know that sometimes people can get a bit funny about these kinds of posts! I just want to say I am not in any way trying to brag or show off about what I got, I'm so so grateful for everything and am purely posting this because I love to see what other people got!
So if for any reason this kind of post offends you, feel free to click elsewhere and read another post ;)

I got these bits from my Grandparents on my Dads side. These might seem a little odd to some people, but my main presents from my Parents (which I actually haven't got a photo of - yet!) are a massage table and beauty trolley so I can set up a mini salon in my house! So I asked my Nan and Grandad for some beauty supplies. These bits are going to come in very handy - I also love the colour towels they chose!

Again, to go with my main present from my parents, my Grandparents on my mums side got me this gorgeous lavender beauty therapists tunic, I love this one, I have a black one already but I wanted one in a prettier colour! They also got me some touch screen compatible gloves, some long cosy socks (always necessary) and chocolate, which was really sweet of them.

These Avon bits are from my boyfriends Mum. I love the perfumes a lot, the little red dress one is great to put in my bag as its so compact. The nail polish is a gorgeous gold and silver shimmer - fab for new year! The mascara is amazing too, the brush is similar to Covergirl Lashblast which if you know me, you'll know I love my lashblast!

My twin sister Hannah got me this super cute penguin from the Build A Bear Workshop, I was so (childishly) excited to see the build a bear box! She also got me this gorgeous washbag from H&M with some new look socks and soap and glory goodies inside.

This mini dove set and bath bombs were both table presents. We always do little table presents at Christmas, It's so sweet and fun to see what everyone gets.

 How cute is this dressing gown from my Mum and Dad?! I'm sat wearing it writing this post!

My Mum and Dad also got me the Soap and Glory 'Best of all' set, which I'm sure you've all heard a LOT about! It really is a fantastic set though and I was so excited to get it. I'm loving this and I'll definitely do some in depth reviews of some of the products.

Inspired by my Marilyn Monroe themed bedroom, my parents also bought me this little tin and umbrella (always useful in the UK). I love things like this, I'm going to use the tin to go on my bedside table to put bracelets and things in.

Also from my parents, I got Benefit the POREfessional primer, Clarins everlasting foundation, MAC Diva lipstick and MAC Cherry lip liner. All perfect items for this time of year!

My mum and dad also got me these adorable me to you bear slippers - how cute are they? And this little jar was a present from my Auntie, it has things like ribbon, buttons, sequins and rhinestones in it. It's so useful for doing little crafty things and I can't wait to use it! My Auntie also got me some super cute pink fluffy ear muffs, which I didn't manage to get a photo of as they're currently being worn by the Santa Claus toy in our living room!!

I was definitely spoiled by Darren this year! He got me this gorgeous sequinned skirt from New Look, a book (love this series), MAC Creme d'nude lipstick (will definitely do a review!), a me to you bear and a Tiffany Necklace(!!!!!) I was so excited when I unwrapped it and saw the blue box, it was everything I could do not to scream and jump up and down. Boyfriend of the year award?

As I said, my main present from my parents is going to be my mini salon, so I'll definitely get photos of that as soon as I'm all set up! I also got some money and gift vouchers from other family members so expect some sales hauls. I also had a few presents from friends which I got early so I want to say thank you to absolutely everyone, not just the people mentioned! I am so grateful for everything I received for Christmas and couldn't be happier.

I had such a lovely day and I hope every single one of you had a fab Christmas and have a wonderful New Year!
