Christmas was two days ago and I must say, it was very good. Considering how horrible it went last year, I wasn't quite sure what to expect this year, but it turned out really well.
I always love to see what people got for Christmas so I decided to make a post on what I got, just in case there's anyone else like me out there.
I apologise for the quality of some of these photos. My camera has been acting up a lot lately so I had to take these on my BlackBerry.
One of my big presents was my 8gb iPod touch. I've been in desperate need of a new iPod for ages so I am absolutely delighted with it.
Like the rest of the country, my other big present was the BlackBerry 8520 Curve. Despite all the bad reviews I've been wanting to get this for a good while, mainly for the internet aspect of it. But to my disappointment, it's been giving me some serious troubles already.
I couldn't take a photo of it because I had to take all of these photo's on my BlackBerry so here's the official photo instead!
I got a few Nails Inc things. The first was the 'Glitterati' set. From left to right, the colours are 'Hatton Garden', 'London Bridge' and 'Chelsea Embankment'. This also came with a €14 off any Nails Inc service within the next two months.
The next Nails Inc set I got has no name apparently. It comes with a mini Kensington hand lotion and three mini nail polishes. The colours are 'Edinburgh Gale'. 'Leicester Square' and 'Burlington Arcade'.
The third and final Nails Inc set I got was the Special Effects Overglaze Polish. It comes with two polishes - 'Chelsea', which is a plum black solid colour and an overglaze top coat in 'The Donmar'. This is by far my favourite set out of the ones I got. The effect you get it amazing but if you put too much on it can look like shatter polish. I twitpic'd a photo of me wearing it last night.
I also got the 'Big Splendour' kit by Soap & Glory which is now sold out. It comes with 'Heel Genius Foot Cream', 'Hand Food', 'The Righteous Butter', 'Mist You Madly - A Flirty Floral Fragrant Body Spray', 'Face Soap Clarity', 'Clean on Me', 'Calm One, Calm All - Bubble Bath', a packet of 'Off Your Face' and a Sexy Mother Pucker lip gloss in 'Candy Gloss' which I forgot to include in the photo.
Next I got a Fearne Cotton palette called 'From Lush Lil' Dawn Eyes'. First impression - I'm not too impressed with it. This is the first makeup product of her's I've tried and I did have high expectations but when I swatched these the payoff wasn't very good at all.
Something I've been in dying need of for a good while is Moroccan Oil. This really makes your hair so soft and appear more healthy than it really is, which is handy for me due the amount I colour and straighten my hair. This retails for about €25 so that is the main reason I waited until Christmas to get it again.
The last thing I got from Santa was a Beatles - Revolver shirt. I'm pretty sure this is from Penny's/Primark because I got a Sgt. Pepper's one there the other day and my friend said she saw Abbey Road ones in there too. I'll probably end up chopping this up within the next few days so make it look a bit nicer.
From my sister I got a Simple Pleasures set which came with seven lip glosses. She also got me a pair of sterling silver star earrings. I'm not sure where she got them.
As well, I got an early Christmas present from her a few weeks ago in the form of a train case, which I am delighted with!
From my nana and granddad I got three albums - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles, Abbey Road by The Beatles and Queen - Greatest Hits. I'm so chuffed with these because I have all of The Beatles album's on my iPod but I don't actually have any physical albums. I'm getting a record player soon because our other one is broken so I'll be getting vinyl versions soon too, yay!
Also from my nana and granddad, I got these lilac Hedkandi headphones which are amazing! I've been wanting to get proper headphones for a while but I decided to wait until Christmas to get them. They're so good that even my brother has been wearing them. Not outside of the house, of course.
From my aunt I got a €40 voucher to Tally Weijl and I got money off my uncle. I also got a few other bits in my stocking and stuff but I didn't think that they were really of enough importance to have photos of :')
