What I Got For Christmas 2013

So it maybe January and the decs may have already been taken down, but it hasn't stopped me from clinging on to whats left of the festivities (ie still consuming one too many chocolates and watching Home Alone for the millionth time). So with that in mind, today I have decided to show you lovely lot a selection of the goodies I received from Santa this year. As with all posts like this, I would just like to add a small disclaimer, and just put it out there, that I am in no means trying to brag (its a bit of a marmite like post). Being a nosey parker I love reading these types of posts, and thought you may too!! 

Michael Kors and Estee Lauder Makeup Set
Being the makeup fanatic that I am, its hardly suprising that I received some pretty new beauty treats. Aside from the essentials ie, the customary bottle of Philosophy's Purity Cleanser and festive polishes, I was also gifted some gorgeous beauty sets. Tim sneakily picked up this Estee Lauder and Michael Kors set during our recent trip to Bicester.
Ted Baker Hat Box Gift Set
Tims Mum treated me to this fabulous Ted Baker Set, after hearing me rave about it several weeks ago. I seriously cant get enough of the vibrant hat box, who could resist neon pink stripes and floral patterns.
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy
Knowing im a sucker for a good Juicy Couture scent, Tim treated me to not one but two Viva La Juicy and Viva La Juicy Noir Sets.
Included in one of the sets was a bright pink makeup bag, double ended polishes (expect a review soon), a mini rollerball, lipgloss and Juicy Charm. 
Jewellery | McQueen Wrap Bracelet, Kate Spade Bangles, Pandora Charm & Tory Burch Earrings
One thing I love more than beauty is a good bit of bling, most specifically arm candy. I really must have been on Santa's good list this Christmas as I received a beautiful Alexander McQueen Double Wrap Skull Bracelet, Tory Burch Earrings, and Kate Spade bangle from Tim (I really do have an amazing boyfriend). I also received a beautiful blue Pandora Charm from my Mum and Dad. 

Kate Spade Cable Tidy 
Forever leaving a trail of tangled wires behind me, the boy though that these Cable Tidy's from Kate Spade would be ideal. 
how beautiful!!
Michael Kors Ugg Boots
My main present from my parents this year was these gorgeous Michael Kors Ugg Boots. Love them or hate them, there's no denying that these will keep my tootsies warm and snuggly during this horrendous weather. 
Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf
Each Christmas I set aside a little money from my December pay check to go a little crazy over the Christmas Eve sales (hello Mulberry and Harrods). Sadly a spanner was thrown into the works this year as I was sadly a victim of fraud. Card-less over Christmas, I compensated (with a little help from Christmas money) by indulging in this beautiful Alexander McQueen skull scarf. 

So thats what I got for Christmas this year (technically last year, oh my). I really am one lucky girl, and am truly grateful for the thoughtful gifts I received. I also received several other bits and pieces including a snuggly snood and jamis (did I also mention that im the proud owner of Karl Pilkingtons The Moaning Of Life? haha). What did you get for Christmas? If you've done a similar post I would love to see it!!
