What I Got For Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you had a lovely day and are enjoying New Year’s Eve. Before I start writing about the New Year, I thought I would share what I got for Christmas.

bare minerals

The first thing I received was this amazing Bare Minerals Happy Glow Lucky gift set. I really need a decent Winter skincare routine and this should help me achieve a clearer complexion.

I have been lusting after a Naked Eye Palette from Urban Decay for as long as I can remember. Andy bought me the original set and I am in love! Annabelle has been desperate to use it but it is definitely going to be hidden out of reach.

oliver bonas

On my Christmas Wish List post, I mentioned this Oliver Bonas Cookbook Stand. It is now sold out but I have added the link in case they restock it. It is described as copper coloured but looks rose gold to me so it is a thing of beauty!

snow fairy

If you know me, you will know that I think Snow Fairy is one of the best scents ever! It is only fitting then that I was given this box from Lush from my brother-in-law. If you haven’t smelt this before it reminds me of eating Wham sweets when I was a child.

Finally, I was given lots of treats and little goodies including a pair of black gloves from Marks and Spencer, Lindt chocolate and Cornish Lust. The latter is a strawberry flavoured creamy liqueur. It is just like Baileys but nicer! It is also available in Tesco so you don’t have to go all the way down to Cornwall to get your hands on some.

What did you get for Christmas this year? Let me know in the comments below. Bx

Gifts for my 2 Year Old – Blogmas Day 20

Christmas this year should be a lot more fun now that Heath is old enough to open his presents. Last year it was great for Annabelle as she could help with the unwrapping but I’m sure she will be excited to see what he has been given and hopefully share their gifts with each other. As he is two years old, I thought he would like this selection of toys.

We wanted to buy Heath a Micro Scooter for his second birthday but I saw some toys on offer in Sainsbury’s and thought I would get those first while they were discounted. Annabelle has the pink Mini Micro Scooter and Heath enjoys riding around on hers while she is at school so it is the perfect gift for his age.

He also needs a helmet so I chose this orange one, also by Micro Scooter. I haven’t purchased this yet as I am debating getting the blue option in case Annabelle can wear it to. I might need to measure their heads to see if they can both wear the same size.

If you have read my Blogmas Day 1 post you will know that Heath is a train enthusiast. I think he would be ecstatic about the Thomas Take ‘n’ Play set with 10 die cast characters. He has Thomas and Percy already but I know he will love Captain and Diesel too.

Andy found this cute Mickey Mouse Duplo Train for Heath in Boots. He received Thomas the Tank engine Lego for Christmas last year so I am planning on combining the two to make a huge set. The great thing about this Mickey parade is that it will appeal to Annabelle too.

Last but not least, whenever Annabelle draws, Heath likes to copy. He will be able to colour in this Crayola Finding Dory book happily without marking our dining table in the process with this Mess Free Colour Wonder. Like the last gift I mentioned, it is also suitable for Annabelle and they can swap packs to their hearts content.

If you missed it, yesterday’s Blogmas post was about my Gift Ideas for Annabelle, my 5 year old daughter. I hope you like it and are enjoying my posts in this run up to Christmas. See you tomorrow for Day 21! Bx
