Christmas 2013

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I enjoy reading the blog posts about what you all did for Christmas and what you received, therefore, I'd like to share a few things from my day.

One of my used gifts that I received so far is this tart burner. I was so excited when I saw this, I popped a tart on top and it was burning it all Christmas day. I got a selection of Yankee candles but settled on the Salted Caramel to start. I find the scent very strong and it lingers for days, but it smells divine. It's very sweet, which is not for everyone, however, I adore it.

Next are a few of the gifts that I received. First up, pajamas. I love getting pajamas for Christmas, especially the ones from Primark, they are really soft and fleecy and elasticated at the bottom so to not let the cold in. I received a couple of pairs, as well as some cute and fluffy patterned socks. I have very flat and thin hair, therefore I am constantly trying to add volume to it. The Umberto Giannini is perfect to try and add that extra, much needed volume. It comes with a full volume hairspray, a root boost volume spray, a volume mousse as well as rollers and a back comb brush. Next, one of my favourite beauty items I received. My mum buys me a Lancome mascara almost every year and this year was the Hypnose Doll Eyes, which one of my favourites. By the name of my blog, it's not hard to figure out I'm a fan of owls my family know this also, resulting in many owl themed presents. One of those being this adorable heatable hooty. You pop it in the microwave to warm up for those cold winter nights and it leaves a lovely lavender scent.

After all the present opening, the rest of the day consisted of a lovely vegetarian dinner, homemade cheesecake, extreme couponing on TLC, more chocolate and sweet treats followed by an afternoon nap. Safe to say, I stayed in some comfy pajamas all day and ate lots of food. I had a lovely day and am very grateful for everything.

I'd love to see some more Christmassy posts, so let me know if you have done one in the comments below!
