I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! I was working Christmas Eve and Boxing Day so I only had the one day off but I've now got 5 days off for the New Year. With my time off I've finally been blogging again and I'd like to share with you some of the beauty bits I got for Christmas.

I wrote about this Yule Monty set last week but I never got round to buying it. When I went into Boots the deal was over and it went back to £60. However, my mum had listened to my hints and bought it for me! The set includes SUGAR CRUSH body wash, THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER body cream, HEEL GENIUS foot mask, HAND FOOD hand cream, PEACHES AND CLEAN cleanser, THICK & FAST mascara, THE SCRUB OF YOUR LIFE body buffer, BUTTER YOURSELF body lotion and SEXY MOTHER PUCKER gloss. All the products are huge and not just your bog standard sample size. I'm excited to start using this!

So yes, I got even more Soap & Glory in the form of the Girl-O-Whirl set, which I've been lusting after for ages! I wrote about it in another blog post and my mum remembered me looking at it when we were in Westfield. The set includes a mascara, a gloss stick, 6 Lid Stuff eyeshadows, 6 Supercolour fabulipsticks, Glow All Out face powder, Solar Powder multi-shade bronzer, eyeshadow brush, lip brush and blusher brush. I want to do a FOTD with this set on so look out for that soon!

The next Soap & Glory set is a bath set with BUTTER YOURSELF body lotion, ENDLESS GLOVE moisture mask, FOAM CALL bath and shower gel and PULP FRICTION body scrub. Bath times are so much fun again now I've got all these lotions and scrubs!

You've probably seen my endless tweets about wanting the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and my Want of the Week post about it, and now I've finally got my hands on it! My boyfriend gave me this and it's so gorgeous - I can't wait to try out all the colours. I'll probably do a more in depth blog post about it soon  :)

A couple of the other bits include a Molton Brown set, which smells amazing, and Soap & Glory Loved & Glossed lip set. 

And finally, a non beauty related haul....

My parents bought me a few books - John Landis' Monsters in the Movies, Mark Kermode's Hatchet Job, Richard Milward's Kimberly's Capital Punishment and the Made in Chelsea book (don't judge me). 

I also got some money and Topshop vouchers so I went rummaging through the sales today. I bought some lovely bits and bobs so I'll try and get up a haul post next week!

Sorry for this long winded post but I hope you enjoyed seeing the bits I got :) What did you get for Christmas? Let me know in the comments!

much love, 


  1. I love S & G products! I have the Yule Monty (picked it up for myself before Xmas!) and the Loved & Glossed set (purchased in the sales!)

    The Urban decay naked 3 palette is such a lovely gift too!

    Happy New Year and all the best for 2014! xx
