WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS 2014

Me and my family really love to treat each other this time of year and it's such a lovely feeling to swap presents that you've all put so much thought into; I'm so incredibly grateful for all of the presents I received and feel completely overwhelmed by how wonderful they all are. I've seen a lot of talk and controversy on twitter over these types of posts the past few days but I always really enjoy reading them so I wanted to do one this year to show you a few bits that I got for Christmas :) I just think that if these kind of posts aren't your thing then don't read them rather than creating unnecessary negativity! 
 Me and my sister got these adorable little mouse gloves in our stockings from our wonderful stepmumma and I just can't get over how cute their little faces are! These are my favourite style of glove and I'm going to feel seriously cosy and happy wearing these whilst waiting for the train to work each day :)
I'm completely obsessed with Frozen (as you may already know if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram hehe!) so this train ticket holder was another amazing find from my stepmumma and it's going to brighten up my day each time the ticket inspector comes around :) I've been wanting one of these holders for ages but couldn't ever find the right one but I just absolutely love this and will probably use it some days instead of my purse if I'm going somewhere where I only need one or two cards.

This is one of my favourite book series ever but I forgot this new one was out so my mumma did really well surprising me with this :) I've heard really good things about it and can't wait to get stuck into Becky's next adventure!
Nothing beats chocolate at Christmas and I love how cute each of these bits are :) They're almost too good to eat!
I smelt this perfume in Boots a while ago when it was on offer and completely fell in love with it but didn't buy it as we were in a rush, I then searched high and low for it and couldn't find it anywhere at all as I think it's being discontinued :( James managed to track it down on Amazon and I can't even tell you how excited I was to wear this on Christmas day; it's such a beautiful floral and fresh smell and is probably one of my favourite smells ever so I seriously hope Amazon don't discontinue it too! How beautiful is the bottle as well?!
My sister surprised me with these goodies from Lush and I was so excited when I opened them as I'm completely addicted to their bath bombs and bubble bars but can't afford to buy them very often. These each smell absolutely gorgeous and she couldn't have picked me better smells considering I hadn't even told her which ones I wanted :) I love that they're all pink as well! January can be a bit of bleak month so I'm looking forward to having some pamper time with these.
She also got me this perfume and oh my goodness it's amazing; I've had the ordinary Beyonce Heat perfume before and really liked it but I found it a bit too strong for every day wear and I don't really go out in the evenings so didn't get as much use from it as I would have liked to. This one is such a prettier scent though and I'm going to have to be really strict with myself to not go through this in the speed of light as I love it so much! The bottle looks so pretty on my dressing table too :)
I've wanted both of these brush sets for a good couple of years but I could never really justify them as I didn't think I'd be able to find a use for each of the brushes. I'm so pleased I finally asked for them though and I know every blogger and their mum has these sets but they really are so fantastic and cover pretty much everything you could ever need a brush for! I'm so happy and excited to finally have them and can't wait to use them for the first time :)
I suffer with really sore and cracked lips in the winter so I was really happy to receive lots of yummy lip products to try, they all smell amazing but I'm just completely obsessed with the hot chocolate one in the ginger bread set, it tastes so good!

I'd love to hear what you got for Christmas :)
Love Holly x
