New stuff! What I got for Christmas 2017

Hello! Yep, it is well into January I know, but as I love ‘What I got for Christmas’ posts and videos, I thought I would share my stash of goodies with you all too.


Michael Kors Smart Watch

Ah, my swanky new watch that does a lot of stuff! My previous everyday watch was my most favourite ever. I loved it and rarely took it off. Unfortunately, when having the battery changed it ended up broken and  I was left having to use my phone and fancy dress watched to tell the time daily. So, come Christmas and the Black Friday deals, I was on the hunt for the perfect replacement. The watch was a gift to me but I got to choose it myself. Happily, this appeared in Amazon’s Black Friday deals with a huge discount applied to the £329 RRP. Imagine my happy face!

Firstly I love how this watch looks. The colour is perfect. Sitting on the rose gold spectrum but duskier and darker which pairs well with many colours. I like to be a bit coordinated, you know…

A particular feature is how it pairs with your phone. This means that as and when you receive notifications from Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp and all those things, your watch lets you know! It also tracks your steps (yes, the picture shows 2 steps! I wasn’t wearing it that day…) and reminds you of things you set it to remember. So many features to learn and use in addition to customisable options to suit your preferences, this watch is certainly a special gadget and one I am finding incredibly useful day-to-day.

My previous watch which was my most favourite ever!


Blackberry & Rhubarb Scented Pillar Candle

The Chesapeake Bay Candles are presented so beautifully and this one is no exception. With a rich blackberry colour, this candle is tall and smells wonderful. Interestingly, I don’t get the rhubarb through but it still smells great. The presentation of this one feels warm and homely and these candles last ages too. I can’t wait to get this one going whilst the cool evenings are still with us.


Wagamama Cookbook

Who loves Wagamama? I love Wagamama and so do most of my family! And now I can make it at home!


W7 Blazin Palette

Yes!! If you know me at all you will know I love W7. So, it isnt like I wouldn’t have been happy with the Naked Heat Palette… but I am incredibly excited about the W7 Blazin’ palette being part of my collection! So far I haven’t used it… being unwell over Christmas meant not much makeup application! I am, however, very much looking forward to getting stuck into it!


Bomb Cosmetics bath Set

New stuff! What I got for Christmas 2017

I have actually used the Flutter By, Butterfly Bath Blaster and, as with all Bomb Cosmetics Bath Blasters, my skin felt wonderfully soft. Although my sense of smell still hadn’t quite returned at the point of using it, I could tell the scent was one that I really liked and if I see this particular blaster again, I will be buying it.


Lee Stafford Coco Loco Wonderball Wand

I have been in the market for a new way to curl my hair for a little while now. Whilst I am completely happy with my straighteners and the way they produce curls. I fancied something a little different. The Coco Loco wand gives you two options. Beachy waves using the widest part of the barrel or more defined curls using the thinner areas between. Having used this once so far I was very happy with the result, even though I burnt myself a few times. I did think that the heat-resistant end would be of benefit but my lack of coordination resulted in a couple of little nips! A glove is recommended!


GC  Naturals – Lemongrass & Ginger Diffuser

I am yet to open this diffuser which I suspect to have been from TK Maxx. However, I am confident that it is going to be gorgeous as I love both lemongrass and ginger. Who doesn’t love a good reed diffuser eh? I can imagine using this one on a balmy summer evening with a cool breeze coming in through a slightly open window… so that’s my plan!


Ted Baker Lip Balm

Now that my sense of smell has returned I can safely say that this smells amazing. A combination of sweet and fruity, this is perfect for my scent preferences. In addition, the pot and packaging are beautiful.


Champneys Mask Set

I have to confess to being a little over-excited at this little box of goodies. Over the last few months, I have really gotten into the idea of face masks. I have periodically used them for many years, but with the introduction of sheet masks, things have picked up! This box contains 10 masks for hands and face. I used the moisturising face mask and loved it. My face felt amazing afterwards and I felt pampered and refreshed.


Sanctuary Products:

Sanctuary Green Lemon and Orange Blossom Body Scrub–10229049


Sanctuary Green Lemon and Orange Blossom Body Scrub Body Lotion–10229046

Although I have used Sanctuary products in the past, I haven’t used anything in this scent. I love citrus related scents so for me, these are a great option. Both smell divine.


Lavender and Mint Foot Cream

This foot cream was such a timely and perfect present. I have only recently been thinking about how my feet need some TLC to restore them to their natural baby soft state! I have used this foot cream twice over Christmas with some little cotton socks and my feet are feeling much, much better.


Bath Bridge

New stuff! What I got for Christmas 2017

Such an amazing present. I used this for the first time over Christmas and it absolutely made my bath perfect. It gave me space to keep a glass of wine, a candle, a pot of olives and a place to set my phone (to watch YouTube) so that I could keep my hands and arms in the water for a change. It was heaven and I am feeling very, very happy about my future baths!


Leather Refillable Traveler Notebook

How beautiful is this notebook! With an intricate design embossed into the leather cover, it looks gorgeous and has a variety of sections and paper types (lined, grid, blank) to cover all of your notebook needs.


Twizzle Shower Gels

I’m not sure where these came from but I found them on Ebay for those of you that wish to take a closer look. I love the idea of these. I’m always raving about fruity scents being my favourite and these fit the bill with a little bit of sweet thrown in. There are 6 scented shower gels in this set and all sound fab.

What was your top Christmas present? Did you get everything you hoped for?
