Christmas is over! But now I have presents!

I am so tired...Christmas has drained all of my energy.... :P I had a great Christmas and I got some great pressies ^ - ^ I got loads of lovely pressies from my friends and family, and I thought I'd share a few of my beauty related presents here :)

(The chocolate bear isn't beauty related, but it is yummy ^ - ^)

The first present I opened was the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat. I literally squealed when I opened it > . < I have been wanting to try this out for so long! I got it in shade 1 and as I use it I will review it in a later post :)

Next up I got the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh perfume, which I actually specifically asked for this Christmas. My mum gave me a teeny sample bottle a while ago (along with Vera Moda Lovestruck) and I loved it so much I asked for it for Christmas. I adore the Daisy packaging, but I really don't like the smell of the original Daisy perfume, but when I tried out this new one it was so different and delicious, it's really floral and fresh and I can't wait to wear it in the Spring and Summer :D It's also huge, I got the 75ml bottle, so I think that should last me a while :P

Finally I got the cutest gift box of Benefit products ever, it's so adorable looking, I can't wait to put it on my dresser ^ - ^. Inside I got Benefits new(ish) mascara They're Real! which I cannot wait to try out, my favourite mascara in the whole wide world is Benefits Bad Gal, so I'm really excited about this one :) Then I got a Lust Duster pot in a gorgeous pinky lilac colour called Jelly Roll, I don't have any eyeshadows in this colour, so it'll be really useful, and I haven't tried the Lust Dusters before, so that's another exciting product to test :D Last but not least I got the gorgeous r.s.v.p creaseless cream, which I have been pining over since I got my first Benefit Creaseless Cream for my birthday. It's a gorgeous bronze pink colour and smells beautiful. I think I might have to increase my collection of Creaseless Creams, I find them just so gorgeous.

I have a few more things to share, but these were my favourite beauty related gifts :)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their friends and family <3

New House, Pets and JANUARY EXAMS

I'm home! Yays :) Except that we've moved and I have a new house, so it's not the home I left :P I've spent the last couple of days unpacking boxes (so boring) but finally my bedroom is starting to look more like my own :)

I'm back with my pets! I've missed having fluffy things wandering around, at uni it's so pet-less :( So sad. I had forgotten just how much dog fur gets on my clothes though - _ - I need three clothes brushes to make my clothes not ginger and fluffy anymore.... Technically the pets aren't allowed upstairs, but I let my cat up last night to nap on my bed, shhh :P

I went Christmas shopping yesterday (woo Christmas :P) and got two Rimmel products : a red lipstick from the Kate Moss range in 01, I've been wanting a statement red lipstick for ages, I think it's especially good for the holidays, very festive :) I also got a lip liner in 024 red diva, for the lipstick. I got the lipstick for £5, on sale down from £6.50 and the lip liner for £3.99, so not really pricey :P

I'm writing this as a break from's so very very boring :P After a while I just want to curl up and sleep :P Once my January exams are over I might reward myself with a shopping spree I probably can't afford ;P

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Time, New Boots and Nail Polish

It's getting very very very cold! ^ - ^ I'm going home in a few days, and I can't wait :) As much as I've enjoyed my first term of uni, I am looking forward to going home and seeing my pets! I only have one exam this week (tomorrow eeeeeeeep!) and then I'm free (ignoring the January exams of course :P). I have to start packing all my stuff on Thursday > . < I hate packing :P

Earlier this week there was a funfair in town! It was really teeny tiny, but it had a few good rides. My friends went on a huge one with two arms which swung you around...I stayed on the ground and held their bags :P I don't think I like heights too much :P. I did get a chance to play on some of the rides though :D I almost lost my hat on a couple and had to tie my shoes up extra extra tight to stop them from flying off :P

Speaking of shoes my darling blue boots from New Look last year have officially died *cries*. I've worn them so much that the sole has completely worn out. :( They're not waterproof anymore, the final straw was my feet getting soaked through :P I can't handle that. To replace them I got these cuties from River Island for £35. They're black lace up suede boots with grippy soles (definitely good on all these icy hills :P) they have a small wedge as well which I really like, it's always good to be a bit taller ;)

My only other new item this month (I'm poor because of Christmas :P) is this cute Nails Inc. nail polish in Basil Street. It's a really cute nude pink colour and I've been wearing it non stop. I love how elegant and understated it looks. It really enhances any outfit. I really love Nails Inc. varnishes, I need to buy more! :P

That's my short, end of term at uni post, hopefully I'll have more over Christmas, what with all the presents :P Hehehe <3
