What I Got For Christmas

I hope everybody had a fabulous Christmas and got everything they asked for! I am incredibly lucky and I got so much this year, and I am excited about every single thing so I've been itching to share this post! 
I wanted a bucket bag for a long time. It's the perfect size for uni, so I can fit all my books into it and such. I love this one from Red Cuckoo, I am in love with the plum colour and the soft leather. 
I got all three of the Bobbi Brown city palettes: Paris, London and New York. I am obsessed with them! I also got the Charlotte Tilbury Complete Brush Set (not all photographed). 
I got the two Stila blush palettes I've been wishing for for ages! Sunrise Splendor and Sunset Serenade. Plus, I got three of their new matte lipsticks, and from their holiday collection, the Naturally Nude liquid lipstick trio and the highlighting palette!
Receiving the book on Francois Nars was a huge surprise! I'm so happy I've got it. In 2017, my bedroom is being renovated so I can't wait to display it. 
I bought the Philosophy Micro Delivery Peel at the end of last year, and using it regularly completely transformed my skin. I ran out of it around October time, but I couldn't afford to repurchase it, with it being £60. So I put it at the top of my Christmas list, and I was thrilled when I got it! I've used it once  already prior to this post and the difference was immediately noticeable. 

I also got what I was finally lusting after, Wayne Goss brushes! I got The Collection set. I am blown away by the quality. They are all handcrafted and incredibly soft. I am thrilled I got these! 
My boyfriend bought me the Delilah Pure Lights Collection - or as he called it "the lights". The set includes a bronzing powder and two highlight powders, plus a brush. I was really impressed by the brush, actually. I find usually in gift sets with brushes the quality isn't what it'd be if sold individually, but it's really lovely! I probably won't be investing in any more Delilah brushes any time soon, given how many brushes I got for Christmas. But I am impressed by the one I've got! 
I got an adorable bobble hat from Pachamama! I saw it when I was out with my mum once and fell in love with it so I was happy when I opened it on Christmas day. I also got some gloves from Sainsbury's, and a pretty off mustard colour scarf from Regatta
I got so much pug stuff! I got a mug, a purse, a candle, lip balm! And that's just what I've included in this photo! I also got the Petsies book - a photo album for selfies with your pets! I also got a Gingerbread Maple Yankee Candle.  
Did I mention I'm obsessed with pugs? I got the Lou Lou the Pug book and a pug calendar!  I also got a Tangleteezer brush, a macaroon lip balm and three Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks in the shades Mannequin, Doll Parts and Gemini
I also got The Little Book of Hygge, a 2017 Diary from Ban.do, and another adorable bobble hat!
I am so happy to have got a perfume I've been wanting for so long: Ivoire by Balmain. It's a very subtle floral fragrance, and a really sophisticated scent. 
Last but not least, I got a personalised bag for all of my camera gear, a blanket scarf from Forest and Co and the Listography book. 

What did you get for Christmas?
