what I got for Christmas

Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a lovely day. My sister and I both got tickets to see Matilda the musical tomorrow in London, exciting!! So I will do a bit of shopping while I'm there and treat myself to some things with my Christmas money! I also got a lot of lovely beauty products so I thought I'd share them with you all and would love to read your Christmas posts too...

Benefit 'Upgrade to Gorgeous'. It's a tradition that my sister buys me some kind of Benefit product each year as she knows how much I love them. The set contains High Beam, Sugarbomb, a mini They're Real mascara, mini Porefessional primer, and mini perfume sample. I love porefessional and will have to buy the full size! Review to come soon!

Loreal Force Vector anti-breakage masque. I used this on my hair yesterday and it feels so much smoother! I put it on dry hair for a few minutes before I had a shower and washed it normally, it's really made a difference as it still feels lovely today after washing.

Dove Silk Indulgence pamper set

Beauticology bath set with a Cherry Cupcake shower gel and Vanilla Cupcake body lotion. As far as smelly gift sets go I'm quite impressed with this one both products smell divine!

Loreal Crystal Gloss spray. This is a finishing spray that leaves hair shiny

Toni & Guy products from my sister: Glosser for all Blondes & Instant Calmer and Straightner for all Blondes. I've really neglected my hair this year and not looked after it so I'm going to make an effort to use these in the New Year. I love that they're targeted for blonde hair as well and mean I won't have to straighten my hair as much.

Makeup Brush set. I think I'm going to chuck my old ones out and start again with brushes. This set was from M&S and came in a nice leather pouch. I've heart a lot about the Real Techniques sets as well so might treat myself to a couple of those.

Sweetie tree! You may have seen my post a while ago about DIY sweetie trees. My mum got the idea a while ago as these were used as table decorations at a wedding, I didn't know she'd made one for all the family as well and gave them to us at the table at Christmas dinner. Mine was covered in my faovurite sweets and my Grandad had a liquorice allsorts one.

Cath Kidston mug. I accidentally smashed my one and was so annoyed! It's been on my wish list for a while
