What I Got for Christmas 2017

I did one of these posts last year and you seemed to like them. I know I love reading these types of "what I got for .." posts. I don't think they are showing off and if anything it's just like a haul post and I always get lots of inspiration and ideas for more things to buy. So I hope you like seeing what I got for Christmas from my lovely family.
Neon Light - I've wanted a neon light for a while and although I have now got a cactus wall light for my kitchen, this super cute pink flamingo neon looks perfect on my desk. It lights up via a usb cable, which plugs in to my laptop.

Orla Keily Mugs - Who doesn't love a new mug or two at Christmas. These are probably the coolest mugs I have. I also got an initial mug (which is still full of yummy chocolate) and it's going to be my new work mug.

Avocado Tea Towel - I always need/want new tea towels and as 2017 was the year I discovered my love for avocados, this one is perfect.

Drinks Bottle - I try and drink at least 1.5 litres of water a day and had been re-using old plastic water bottles but they get a bit yuck, so this drinking bottle will not only make sure I have a good amount of water in one go, it's also easier to keep clean.
Inhale Exhale Print - This is from the Honeymoon Hotel Art website, who I love and this cute A4 size print is so simple yet effective. I just need to buy at least two incorrectly sized frames before I put this up, probably in my bedroom.

Coffee Table book - I bought a coffee table for the first time ever this year and I am obsessed with it (I might do a post on it..). I asked for a gold covered book and didn't care what it was about, I just wanted the book to look gorgeous on top of my table. But I lucked out as the inside of this interiors book is even prettier and inspiring than it's cover.

Joules Tin - This pretty floral tin contains handy sized body wash, body lotion, body scrub and body butter. All smell delicious and perfect sizes for holidays.

Real Techniques Powder Bleu Eye Shadow brush - I love all RT brushes and have wanted to try the newly launched (this year) powder bleu brushes. All of this range has been developed to be used with powder products only. I cannot describe how soft the brush is. If I were able to pick up Jeff my house rabbit, it would be like brushing his super soft fur along my eye lids.
Tony Moly Face Sheet Mask - I've already used this. It's lovely, not too sloppy and easy to put on and take off.

Beauty Blender - I've used a Beauty Blender before and really like them. Although I've been preferring a brush for applying my foundation recently, I will be using the Beauty Blender to blend in..

Glossier Stretch Concealer - Everyone seems to love this concealer which is meant to move with your skin, so it doesn't settle in to fine lines. I'll do a full comparison review soon.
Nip + Fab Body Lotion - I didn't even know Nip + Fab did body products but if this is as good as their face products, I'm going to enjoy slathering this lavender scented lotion on.
Scarf  - This Grey and neon green scarf from Asos is so soft and huge. I love the two toned effect, so you get two scarves for one.
Note Book - I have enough note books to last me a life time but I always want more and this cute polka dot one is going to be my new work note book.

Instagram Famous book - This book is brilliant. It's got so many really useful tips on taking photos for Instagram, whether to hash tag, geotag and how to edit. This is such a great present for anyone that even vaguely likes Instagram or taking photos.
Rabbit Print - Not enough words to describe how incredibly cute and cool this print is. My own house rabbit always lies like this but when I've tried to take a photo, he's surrounded by his own poos!
Wasn't I lucky and the thing I love is most of these amazing gifts were not things I had asked for but they are all perfect and exactly what I would have wanted if I had seen them, so thank you family.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and have nearly got through the leftovers.
