I received this lovely stuff from Lisa aka Lisahh-Jayne - she knows me too well! I'd run out of my favourite body scrub - the Champneys Distant Shores scrub - and almost bought it from the Boots website the other day! Glad I didn't though! She also knew I wanted the Mirenesse Glossy Kiss too! Good friend that one. She also included some goodies from The Body Shop and a small tin of lip balm - love her!
These were my stocking fillers from Steve as my main present hasn't turned up yet - he got me a Bomb Cosmetics Luxury Bath Box and a Barry M lipstick in the shade 162.
My Mum is actually taking me to a concert next year that she has paid for so I knew I wouldn't be getting much for Christmas or my birthday in January. However, she did buy me the two books I really wanted - these two men are my favourite British actors so I was always going to want their books!
Proof that a certain Sarah-Louise knows me far too well - I actually got a little emotional about this present! Sarah actually reviewed her Doctor Who coasters here and we'd discussed at length how much I liked them! I almost bought them there and then, however kept putting it off! When I saw that she'd bought these for me, it was really lovely because I knew how much thought she'd put into it and she'd chosen something that suits us and our friendship.
Some random items here: my Dad randomly got me a flask that I'd been asking for - my home office is upstairs so if I want a hot drink, it means running up and down the stairs! Although him and Mum had already bought me concert tickets and the books (plus lots of chocolate and biscuits!), this was a nice thought as it is definitely something I will use.
Another present I got emotional about was the photo album Shona got me - she'd bought a photo album and actually got some pictures printed out to put inside. Some of these haven't even been shared on my blog which means she took the time to go through my Facebook and Instagram too - I needed a photo album as I had tons printed a while back so this was so handy and just at the right time - I've almost filled it up already!
I recently took part in the Poundland Secret Santa Challenge and I got the lovely Helen - we, along with Sarah, are both admins in the UK Bloggers group and found it quite funny when we got each other! We even got each other the same thing! Haha!
