Christmas 2013 Haul

C1

Wow, can you believe Christmas has already come and gone? It feels like it went by so quickly for me! I did spend the first part of December overseas, so I think I missed out on a lot of the Aussie celebrating back home!

My boyfriend and I decided to keep our gifts under control this year, as we went a little overboard last year (which you can read about here) and also because we just got back from overseas!

Please keep in mind that this post is in no way a brag, or trying to make myself look better, or anything like that. I just want to share all the things my boyfriend and family gifted me and say thank you to them all!

C2

All the goodies I got this year! I was definitely spoilt! I haven't shared everything, just things that are beauty/fashion related!


 

C3

Glam Superhero Backpack

My boyfriend and I saw this during one of our shopping trips, and I instantly fell in love! I've been loving backpacks at the moment, and I'm a bit of a superhero nerd so this was definitely me! He totally surprised me with this one as he told me when he went back to buy it for me, they'd already sold out! Little sneak!

C4

Assorted Lovisa Earrings

My mum and I went into Lovisa closer to Christmas in search of gifts for my sister. Of course, I had no problems picking out things for me and so I made life a bit easier for my mum, since she obviously took my advise and picked up a few things I wanted! All of them are just beautiful, so I'm thrilled!

C5

Swarovski Crystal Necklace & Earrings

My boyfriend always has the best taste in jewellery! He took me into the Swarovski store so I could show him what I liked. I picked out a few but wasn't overly impressed, so he didn't end up getting me anything. Obviously he went back and saw this baby - a huge diamond shaped crystal! Gorgeous! I am totally in love with the necklace and have worn it so often since! I also like how simple and elegant the matching earrings are! Good choice, boyfriend!

C6

Ulta 3 Christmas Candy Cane

I told my mum that I want this, and she delivered! She got me one last year too, so I think it's becoming a bit of a tradition! These are so cute and festive too, so they look fantastic under the tree!

C7

Sanrio Hello Kitty Watch

My boyfriend actually bought this in Japan for me, but I helped him choose! I wanted something really special from the Sanrio store, but didn't have a lot of money left, so he offered to buy it for me as part of my Christmas present!

C8

Nails Inc Bling It On Rocks Kit

I had no idea that Nails Inc were available in Australia (David Jones, apparently) but either way I'm thrilled with this! I've been loving textured nails like mad the past few months so I can't wait to have a play around with this set!

C9

Playboy Baby Doll Pinks Glossy Nail Lacquer Kit

My mum gave me more nail polish! She knows I love my nail polish, and she also knows I love my Playboy lingerie, so she thought she'd combine them! These are really cute, so it'll be interesting to see how these go! I love the look of the last polish, it looks so beautiful!


C10

Cotton On Body Sunset Palm Trees Silk Robe

I actually bought myself a Cotton On Body silk robe just before Christmas but in a different pattern, and I love it. This is totally perfect for warm summer nights, so I'm really happy to have another one! This is such a pretty pattern! My mum picked perfectly!

C11

Colette Nail Kit

Another nail polish gift from my mum! I haven't tried the nail polish from Colette but I have recently tried the lip balm and boy oh, boy is it amazing! So here's hoping these will be too, as the colours are really cute!

C12

The Balm Balm Voyage Palette

My boyfriend knew how much I wanted this palette, and every time we went to David Jones there was only ever a few left, and ALL of them had been swatched by filthy fingers. (Why can't people just use the tester!?) He managed to get me an unswatched version of this, much to my joy!

C13

Mecca Maxima Voucher

My sister knows me too well. I won't reveal too much but she was very generous with the amount! I will update you all with my purchases once I get a chance to pop into a store!

C14

Marc Jacobs Lola

My sister bought me a Marc Jacobs fragrance last year - I'm seeing a trend here. But I'm not complaining, I was thrilled when I opened Lola! This is one of the prettiest bottles too, and the scent is gorgeous! This has been on my wishlist for some time, so I'm really happy with this one!

C15

Lush Christmas Bathtime Favourites Gift Pack

I told my boyfriend that if I didn't get this Lush pack for Christmas, I'd be very disappointed! Come Christmas morning, nothing under the tree! Needless to say, I was devastated! After opening all my other gifts (and then feeling very grateful by this point) he surprised me by ducking into another room and bringing it out of hiding! He hid it elsewhere so the huge and obvious box wouldn't ruin the surprise! How sweet!

C16

C17

The bath ballistics included in the Lush pack!

-- 


I was also gifted a number of other goodies such as baking products and games, but I didn't want to bore you guys with those things as I know you're all hear for the beauty!

I had such a lovely Christmas with family, and I feel so grateful to have the family that I do! They spoiled me rotten, and were very generous, so a big thank you to my mum, my sister and of course my wonderful and supportive boyfriend!

What did you get for Christmas? If you've done a Christmas gift haul post, I'd love to see, so link me to it!


Again, this post is not intended as gloating or showing off. This is a thank you post for my family.
