What I got for Christmas (& birthday!)

I know some people hate these blog posts/YouTube videos because they see it as bragging or showing off and I am forever seeing disclaimers insisting these posts are not meant in that way . . But I bloody LOVE these type of posts/videos! As previously mentioned I am super nosey and get so intrigued and excited to see what other people get as gifts! So if you don’t like this kind of thing then you may want to exit now! If anyone else has a post or video with what they got please let me know so I can and have a look! Here are some of the gifts I received for Christmas 2015 and also some from my birthday which was 3 days after.


This is my first white company candle and I am just obsessed with this scent!!! Danny picked it all by himself and I am one impressed wife! (just one of the 6 candles I received because everyone knows Emma loves a candle!)


My first few bits of Charlotte Tilbury make up which I was soooo excited about and the Real Techniques bold metal brushes which have been on my wish list since they were released! And some good old benefit essentials!

 I posted this jumper on my Instagram months and months ago and Danny stalked me and bought it haha!


Really cute shabby chic grey drawers which go perfectly with everything from my mini home haul which I posted yesterday.

A bloody waffle maker!!!!! Enough said.


The fleekiest mirror everrrrrr. So exited for many outfit selfies in this bad boy.


Flowerbomb. Wedding day perfume ❤️

Danny’s sister got me this gorgeous rose gold bracelet with my initial on it, a little heart & a pearl.

I’m not really a trainer girl but these are just my idea of dreamy! So I picked these out and my Mum & Dad got me them for my birthday.


My Mum & Dad also got me the Babyliss curl secret & hairdryer gift set. At first I was a bit sceptical about the curlers as I usually just use a wand however it’s amazing! They curled my hair so fast and once brushed out created the perfect waves that stayed in all night without hairspray.


I’m already obsessed with the pomegranate noir candle so I was so happy when my sister bought me the perfume for my birthday! It’s so strong you literally need one spray and it lasts all night!


I love Minnie Mouse. I’m 25 and I love Minnie Mouse! My Mum is very aware of this and she got me these adorable make up bags which I love so much! They’re not as ‘obvious’ as other Minnie Mouse merchandise I have so I’m telling myself they seem more grown up!

I’d love to see what everyone else got for Christmas! I do hate the phrase ‘I’ve been so spoilt’ but I am very grateful for all the thoughts and efforts everyone puts in when buying gifts but I realise now more than ever it’s not what’s under the Christmas tree it is who’s around it! I hope you all had an amazing festive period! Lots of Christmas love . . .

Em, xo
