What I got for Christmas.

What I got for Christmas. 

Hey guys! It's been a while! We've been quite busy over the holidays and we decided to take a little break from blogging to collect our selves but we are back. How has the holiday been for you guys? I've quite enjoyed my Christmas, it was very peaceful and relaxing and I loved finally giving people their gifts. ;) 

I would have done an outfit post today but the whether hasn't been that great (The worst thing about winter, am I right?). So I decided to do a "What I got for Christmas" post. But, then I realized I didn't want to take photos of everything I got so I picked my favourite things (Not that I didn't love everything I got, because I did) because everyone has their favourite things that they love the most, right? I haven't done this before so I'm feeling a bit awkward about this but hopefully it goes alight. ;)

Bath&Body Works candles. I am a bit obsessed with B&B candles. They smell incredible and the packaging is always so nice! One of my sisters gave me these because she knew how much of a fan I am of them. Honestly, both of these I have received smell amazing. My dad loves the "Salted Carmel" one the most while everyone else loves the "Spiced Apple Toddy". How cute are the packaging of these tho? You can't tell but there's actually glitter on them and they sparkle, it's the cutest. What are your guys opinion on Bath and Body works candles? Do you like them?

I've been wanting to try the "Anastasia Beverly Hills" liquid lipstick for a while now so I was quite happy when my sister gave me this one for Christmas. I still haven't tried it out yet, but I am planning to soon so If you would like a review, let me know. Or if you already tried them let me know your thoughts below. The one I have is in the shade "Allison" and it looks quite lovely. 

If you've been reading our blog for a while you might remember me mentioning how much I love statement necklaces. They are probably my favourite accessory- Jewelry wise- and can really style up and outfit. I'm so in love with this one. The detail is gorgeous and I love the blue stones. I haven't had the chance to wear this one yet but don't worry I will soon. :) What are your opinions on statement necklaces?

I am obsessed, literally obsessed with this metallic phone case! I have it on my phone and it looks amazing. I mean just look at it, it's awesome!! 

Okay, so once again I was planning on buying the Too Faced melted matte liquid lipstick, I knew for sure that I wanted it. The other melted lipsticks though, I honestly was never interested. My sister had one and I didn't really like how it looked. I never tried it myself so I had no idea of the consistency of it, plus the colour she had I didn't really like. I saw this mini lip set and thought maybe I should give them a try since they were only mini versions and if I didn't like it then it wouldn't be that big of a deal, and besides, I would still get to try the Melted Matte one. 

So, my mom got this one for me for Christmas and once again I haven't gotten around to trying them out yet expect for the shade "Chocolate Honey". For something I didn't think I would like, I happened to love it. It's not thick or sticky like I assumed it to be. It's actually very light on the lip and I actually liked how it looked. What do you guys think of the "Too faced Melted liquified lipstick"? Do you like them? Also, What do you think of the matte one, I would love to know. :) 

I got a few fragrance sets this Christmas but this one stood out to me more because I never tried the Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume before but was always curious. It's nice to try out the rollerballs to really test them out before buying a full size without even knowing if you like it. They smell nice but I actually haven't worn them yet. Actually it's kind of funny that I added this one to my favourite list over the Elizabeth and James Nirvanna rollerball set considering I actually loved that one and have actually used it quite a bit. It has a little bit of a spicy smell in my opinion. I guess it slipped my mind when I picked favourites. With that being said, I still really like this set as well. It has a nice, soft feminine floral smell but it's not strong or too sweet. It's quite subtle. Are any of you guys a fan of this fragrance?

I'm a bit obsessed with velvet! It's literally one of my favourite things and to get this velvet cross body bag is just everything. It's from forever21 and it's insanely gorgeous. I really love the detail and the studs. It's so cute. 

I had to include at least one sweet item because I eat a lot of sweets. Can't get much better than A giant sized chocolate bar. One of my friends remembered me saying how I love hazelnut chocolate so she gave me this huge hazelnut chocolate bar along with many other wonderful things. :) I thought it was really thoughtful how she remembered and got something she knew I really loved and then got the biggest she could find. It's actually quite funny, and I love it!! :)

THESE BOOTS!! THESE BOOTS THOUGH!! I love these boots so much. They are from Zara and they look amazing. I love the detail in the laces rather than simple black laces, it really stands out and makes them different and it's what really drew me to them. What do you think, do you like them?

So, there's a list of the things I got for Christmas. There are so many other things I would have loved to share with you guys that I really really liked but to write a decription for everything would be quite  time consuming because sometime's I just write too much and the post would go on forever. But I'm very grateful for all of them and some of them are more sentimental or personal that I'd rather keep them to myself. 
I hope you guys all had an amazing holiday and I hope I didn't overdue it or get annoying with this post. Oh, and I forgot to mention, Happy 2017 everyone!!
