What I Got For Christmas 2014

Well, well - look at me uploading a post in the afternoon! I was planning on writing up this post as soon as I photographed it earlier but Animal Crossing life got in the way and here I am, typing it up at 4pm. Lateness aside, how was your guys' Christmas?! I had a very lovely three days: I went to a Church service for the first time on Christmas Eve, I ate three servings of roast potatoes on Christmas Day and I spent Boxing Day cooking a mock Christmas dinner with my Dad. I also opened some amazing gifts!  


Disclaimer: By sharing this post, I am not bragging in any way. I'm just one of those nosey people who enjoys reading what other people got for Christmas, and thought I'd share a post about what I got, too. I am truly overwhelmed by the amount of thought that went into my gifts, regardless of how much/little was spent on me.
Books: I received Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them by JK Rowling, The Tales Of Beedle The Bard by JK Rowling, Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson & Lauren Myracle and Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Leuithan. I'm super happy with the books I got, and am particularly excited about the fact that I now own almost all books from JK Rowling & John Green.  
 
I also received my favourite Yankee Candle which is Snowflake Cookie, the River Island London perfume set, and my boyfriend got me this amazing Book Journal for when I review books! A post all about it will be up soon!
Lush: From Lush I got the Snow Fairy shower gel, a bottle of the Veganese hair conditioner, the Father Christmas bath bomb, the Dashing Santa bath bomb, Gold FUN (not pictured) and my favourite The Comforter bubble bar.  
 
I also received this amazing mint green ceramic mixing bowl, which the Lush stuff is currently sitting in.
Candles: I was ever-so-lucky enough to receive a little set of Yankee Candles from my nan (which all smell like fruit) and also a sweet pineapple and ginger candle from Primark from my dad.
 
Beauty: I got the Avon Planet Spa Heavenly Hydration face mask & facial massage oil, which I'm super excited to try out. My mum also picked me up this adorable cat make-up bag from Primark - isn't it the cutest?! It matches my phone case (which you can see in this post)
Let me introduce you to my new baby: I was so overwhelmed and infinitely grateful to receive the Nikon Coolpix L830! I hope you can tell how fabulous it is, because I took all of these photos with it and I'm so so impressed with the quality of them.
And finally... I GOT A WAND. This is a certified replica of Hermione's wand from Harry Potter - isn't it just beautiful?! I literally am still speechless that my boyfriend bought this for me, it's such a perfect present!
 
So that's what I got for Christmas! I also received some clothes, a ton of socks, some lip balms, a few nail varnishes and a bunch of baking stuff. I hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope that your Christmas was everything you wanted it to be. xx

  1. Omg Lauren I literally jumped out of my seat when I saw Hermione's wand!!!!!!! I ALWAYS wanted her wand. It was my dream. You got such beatiful gifts :) Jk Rowling books really sparked my interest (can you tell I'm a HP fanatic?!). I too got a camera for christmas. I'm really glad you had a good Christmas :)

    1. Believe me, I did the same thing when I opened it! I'm a massive Harry Potter fan too, I think I'll definitely put up reviews on both of the books once I've read them! Thank you so much - I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too! x

  2. You got some lovely gifts - I don't think amount spent matters as long as it's perfect for the person. I received some lovely cookery items, and some adorable homemade gifts from my boyfriend! x

    1. Thank you! & I totally agree - one of my favourite presents was my ceramic baking bowl, which cost my dad around £5. I think that thought is much more valuable than money. Hope you had a lovely Christmas! x
