Christmas Haul

I hate using the word "haul" for this, it makes me cringe so much because hauls can come across as greedy but that is not what this is! I just wanted to share with you what I received for Christmas this year :)

I say this every year, but I really do appreciate my family and friends and my life in general. We are by no means "rich" and I am definitely not spoilt, so I don't want a post like this to receive any negative comments. My family all work very hard to earn the money they do, and we spend carefully so that we can have moments like this where we treat eachother! I was truly and utterly spoilt this year and I don't feel I deserve it but am so grateful for everything I received!

I'll start with the "smaller" gifts and work my way up! As well as a bit of money, I received two sets of PJs - a gorgeous silky set from M&S and a super snuggly leopard print set from George. I also received a Lash Extension Treatment, a really soft tartan scarf from the men's section in River Island which I love, a Benefit waterproof eyeliner and a really pretty photo frame from Laura Ashley.

Moving onto "smellies", I got a cute box of bath bombs and soaps from Bomb Cosmetics, a candle from Laura Ashley in Mulled Spice, and a set of candles and a room diffuser in the scent Moroccan Rose from Linea.

Now onto make up! I received two NARS eyeshadow duos - one in Bellissima, and one in Charade - and a NARS bronzer in Laguna.

And last, but definitely not least, was my "main" present which, if I'm honest, I really didn't think I'd receive! It's the Canon EOS 600D and I am over the moon! I'm still yet to work out how to edit all the settings to what I like but I've loved using it so far and am so so grateful!

So there you have it! I hope you enjoyed reading this because I definitely enjoyed receiving it haha!

Did you receive anything nice for Christmas?
