What I Got For Christmas 2014


I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas and happy New Year, this is my first post of 2015! Today I am going to tell you about what I got for Christmas - this is basically a haul and I am very grateful for everything in it. Many people do these and I enjoy watching/reading them and finding out what others got. If you're interested, hopefully you will enjoy...

An overview:

Bath and Body
I got some Soap & Glory goodies, Lush, body butters and nail varnishes, a Hollister spray and some makeup bits and bobs...
I love Soap & Glory's items, and was lucky enough to get the Think Pamper set from my Auntie, which includes 6 minis: a body butter, hand cream, body scrub, foot cream, shampoo and shower gel, as well as a pink netted scrubbing thing.
 I absolutely adore lush, so after having an enormous box sitting on my lap with a gorgeous scent wafting out, I was delighted to unwrap 6 So White bath bombs and 1 So White shower gel from my Nana. So White has a strong apple smell, which I love love love!
I have been wanting some of Zoe's beauty products ever since they were launched, so I was very excited to get Soak Opera :)
 In my stocking I got a few things from Estee Lauder - I got a makeup bag with a black eyeliner in 'Blackened Black' inside, two lipsticks in 'Candy' and 'Pink Parfait' (both of which are shimmer) and the 'Take It Away' removal lotion.

The thing I had been wanting for Christmas is a camera, and I was really, really excited when I unwrapped this Canon 1200D!! I will be taking all my blog photos with this from now on, and some of my instagrams. I also got a bag to go with it, and a digital photo frame from my Uncle so I can put some of my favourite photos on there. I can't wait to set that up.
Also from my Nana I got Tony Northrup's DSLR Book: How To Create Stunning Digital Photography which I have found very useful so far. It is set out so clearly and is so easy to understand with tips on lighting, rule of thirds, flash, portraits, shutter speed and more. I would totally recommend it to anyone.

Clothes and Accessories
I got several pairs of beautiful earrings and some hair clips and a necklace; my friends know I love owls!
I got a grey Hollister hoodie which is so soft and cosy, and I just think grey is quite flattering, it's one of my favourite colours for clothing.
 This is a 3 quarter length pink dressing gown from New Look from another Auntie which is so warm and fluffy!
One thing my Grandparents got me was this super, super cosy black onesie from Next with white reindeer all over it. This is honestly the softest thing in existence, I can't even describe it!

I got a candle making kit, which I am really excited about, some Yankee candles and a tealight in a pot, art supplies, a Paris 2015 calendar and a portable charger.
This is also some of my food, I do love Terry's Chocolate Orange a lot!
 My portable charger is EasyAcc and it's so, so useful and great for travelling/long day trips if you use your phone a lot! I love how it looks being plain white with strips of purple, and it's so compact being the same size as my phone.
My brother bought me Garden Sweetpea and Clean Cotton Yankee votives, which are both beautiful, delicate scents. Clean Cotton is heavenly...

Books and DVDs
I am a Zoella fan, and was very happy to receive her book. I am so excited to read it! :))))) I also love Divergent as you will know if you have seen some of my older posts, and I got Four, which is like a spin off from Divergent with four short stories all about the character Four.
From my stocking, I unwrapped Z For Zachariah, a book my mum has been telling me to read, and it does sound very good. I'm sure these will all appear in my Bookworm Wednesdays!
A Wreck This Journal has also been on my wishlist a while, which I was very lucky to get this year. I have done a couple of the pages already, and I will soon be doing more.
These 3 DVDs were also on my wishlist; I have read City Of Bones and saw the film a few years ago at the cinema, and I have finally got the DVD from my Uncle. I can't wait to watch it again!
I have also read The 100, featured in an older Bookworm Wednesday and I was super, super excited when I unwrapped Season 1. I have so far watched 3 episodes with my brother and we are both hooked, it's soooo good and always ends on a cliffhanger!
Last but not least is Endless Love from my Nana which sounds really good and I will definitely watch soon.

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post and having a little nosy, I always do haha.
I'm not sure if I will do any December/2014 favourites posts like some do, but I have got a post on nails and of course, a Bookworm Wednesday coming soon!

 Happy 2015 :)
