Secret Santa .. .What I got




The lovely Gemma From Miss Makeup Magpie and I Decided to host our own secret santa there were three different groups one was an international group for people  who wished to swap gifts with people over seas. The second was a group for uk bloggers that wanted to be paired up with another blogger and decided spending limits etc together. Lastly was the secret santa group where each person was assigned a blogger to gift to and then they would gift to somebody else! It took us ages to organise as we ended up with another 50 bloggers involved!

I was in the secret santa group with a spending limit of twenty pound so I wouldn't know who was sending me my gift. I received my gift in plenty of time yet this made it more difficult for me to resist opening my pressies lol! I did however resist and kept my pressies untouched until Christmas morning.

I was well and truly spoilt by my secret santa who I now know was Kirstie from A yellow brick blog. Kirstie got me some lovely gifts that really made my day. Including a beautiful little silver plated ring with a flower on it its so cute and the on the packet it said if friends where flowers Id pick you, which really made me smile.


I also got a soap and glory lip moisture balm which smells delicious like strawberry and cream yummm! The packaging is really pretty like a swirly sweet or candy cane. Which matched my two candy canes I also had in my parcel but I ate them before I took the pictures ooops,

Also I received a packet of anatomicals face masks with three different masks in. The picture on it really made me laugh as the girl looks like me in the morning lol I've not tried any of their products before so I'm really excited to have a pamper and see how I get on with them.

Another pressie that really had me laughing was S**t girls say book. Which is full of funny quotes and pics I can totally relate too.

Kirstie also got me a new 3 way highlighter from seventeen. Which is a stunning creamy pink it reminds me of Nspas illuminating serum as you can use it under your foundation or mixed in with it. Or as a highlighter on its own. I cant wait to do a review on this as I'm really enjoying using it.

I also got a lovely set of bath goodies which all smell delicious and look so pretty in the packaging.

Lastly but not least I was lucky enough to get the new Barry M smoked palette which has stunning eye shadows in it as well as a blush. I was so happy with this as I love Barry M products and their eye shadows have such amazing pigmentation.

As you can see I was spoilt rotten by Kirstie and she got me gifts that are perfect for me! I cant thank her enough I loved my pressies and cant wait to continue enjoying them :)

Did you take part in a secret santa? What sort of gifts did you receive? Would you be interested in taking part in a secret valentine I'm taking part in?

Lots of love,
Laura x
