What I Got For Christmas 2015

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. Today's post is going to be about what I got for Christmas and as always I'm just putting a disclaimer out there, that I am in no way bragging about the items I have received but I just simply wanted to share what I got with you all. I'm going to try and link as many items as I can but some of them might not be possible. I've actually unpackaged most of my items but most of them came in sets.
French Connection Eye Perfection Collection - Includes an eyeliner, a brow pencil, a mascara, a eyeshadow brush, an eyeshadow palette, tweezers, cream eyeshadow, primer, sharpener and eyelash curlers. I'm really looking forward to trying out their make up because I didn't even realise they sold make up. Review to come in 2016!
Collection Extreme 24 hour felt tip liner in black - I was so happy to receive this, if you didn't already know this is my favourite ever felt tip eyeliner and it is honestly the best. Mine dried up a few months back and I never got round to purchasing another one but now I don't have to because I have a brand new one. It's so affordable but so good.
Eylure Brow Pencil in No.20 Mid Brown  - I've never tried any products from Eylure but I was excited to see this. I have to admit, I'm not really one of those people who have 'on point brows' but I try to make them some what presentable. I'm not sure if my family were trying to hint at me but I shall simply carry on with my brows as normal with how I shape them etc. Normally I use my eyebrow kit from Beauty UK to do my brows so a brow pencil is definitely something new to me and I cannot wait to try it out and see if I prefer it.
Nails Inc - Not quite sure on the colour and it is a smaller size but I love the colour.
The Body Shop Lippy Star Wand - This is the second year in a row that I've got the fruity lip balms from The Body Shop. They really are lovely and they always look so cute when they are packaged.
The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter - I love a good body butter and I think everyone in my family knows this and so I have yet another body butter to add to my collection. I tend to use body butters a few days before I fake tan or with a gradual tan just to give me more moisture and it means I can have a nice smooth application.
Nivea Minis for Her Gift Set - Deodorant, lip balm, shower crème and a moisturiser. I really loved this little set and it is perfect for travelling. This was a really practical gift and I love Nivea.
Elegant Touch Supernova Nail Set - Now I'm not really a fake nail person, I'm not really a nail person. It's one of those things that I find a 'chore' and I just simply don't find the joy in painting my nails although these nails are very unique and pretty, so I shall give them a go and I will have a review up about them in 2016.
Cath Kidston Nail File - Couldn't find a link but it is very pretty.
W7 The Nudes Palette - This is a lovely travel sized palette with all very 'me' colours. I'm definitely a simple girl when it comes to eyeshadows and this palette is really lovely, so I'll be sure to review it.
I'm not quite sure where the phone case is from but I'd like to say Tesco.

New Look Necklace - I'm not sure that there's a link for this necklace but you might be able to find it in your local New Look store. It's so gorgeous and it goes with anything!

I'm not quite sure where the bracelet or the other necklace is from but they are all very pretty.

Now you may have noticed from about Summer this year that I have really been getting into candles and my friends and family have definitely got the hint this year. I feel like I'm obsessed with candles now but at least I have something to help me relax and something that will make my room smell amazing.

The Body Shop Frosted Plum Candle - Although I took a photo of the box the round way round so it's not in English, this is a lovely candle. I've been wanting to try a candle from The Body Shop but then I never had the chance to pick one up but this scent is absolutely incredible.

Yankee Candle White Linen and Lace - Then my best friend kindly got me a Yankee Candle and I nearly cried! I love Yankee Candles and I think it's such a luxury that I now own one and the scent is one of my favourites. So I am a very happy gal and cannot wait to burn this.

Chocolate Brussel Sprouts - Now I did get a lot more chocolate than this but I've been sharing it all with my family so I decided not to feature the rest but look how amazing these chocolates are! They are a massive joke, seen as I hate Brussel sprouts but I'm sure I'll enjoy these.

 The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish - I believe I tried this last year and I really enjoyed using it. I had run out of all my body scrubs and body polish and so I was happy to receive this and I love The Body Shop.

The Body Shop Frosted Plum gift set - I did get a bath sponge thing with this set too but I'm not quite sure where it's gone but this gift set is gorgeous, although I do believe it's not available anymore so I think it might have been limited edition for Christmas.

The Body Shop Glazed Apple gift set - I have been wanting this set for quite a while and felt so happy when I received it. The tin is really cute and I love how the products inside are all travel sized so they will be great to take away with me, if I end up going away. My love for The Body Shop grows year by year and my family definitely knows. Again, I couldn't find a link to this set so I'm not sure if it was just limited edition for Christmas.

Impulse Body Fragrance - Tease, Romantic Spark and Into Glamour. Again, if you know me, you'll know I absolutely love Impulse body sprays. I have these in all of my bags and they go everywhere with me. My favourite is definitely tease but I do love the smell of all of them.

The Body Shop Owl Sponge - Again another item from The Body Shop, this is just a fun owl sponge and it's a great little stocking filler.

Lush Little Snow Fairy Set - I absolutely adore Lush and I was lucky to receive a Snow Fairy gift set. I managed to get Snow Fairy last year for Christmas and I have to admit, it's not my favourite scent ever but again everything is travel sized and so it's good for if you are going away. In the set it also had the 'fun' product and it's pink so I cannot wait to try it.

Lynx Attract for her Duo Gift Set - Just to add to my amazing collection of things to make me smell nice, I also got a Lynx gift set which includes a shower gel and a body spray and so I'll be sure to let you know if I like it.

Primark Pyjamas -  Possibly the worse ever angle for a photo but I currently look like a zombie but beside that, I have a new pair of Primark pyjamas and I honestly think they're the best ones I've had to date. They are so comfy, so cosy and just lovely.

Strictly Come Dancing Tickets - Yes that's right. My last Christmas present I received was a Strictly Come Dancing Ticket and I cannot wait to go to Leeds and watch it. This will be the first kind of 'experience' present I've ever got and I'm honestly so exciting and it's next month. Stay tuned because I'm sure I'll have a post going up about it.

So that's everything I got for Christmas! I'd love to know in the comments everything you got for Christmas so do let me know or put a link down below to your 'What I got for Christmas 2015' posts.

I hope you all continue to have a lovely Christmas break!
