Secret Santa Part 1 – What did I buy?

Does anyone think that this years Christmas gone way too
fast? I do and I’m feeling a bit nostalgic at the moment. I would like to
prolong this Christmas spirit for a bit longer, hence I decided I’ll bring two
posts over to you. They both relate to Secret Santa 2013.  

This year I had the pleasure to be part of two Secret
Santas. One was organised by some amazing people from my work and the other one,
#BBloggersSecretSanta, was brought to us beauty bloggers by Tamsyn-Elizabeth of
peachpowxo and Gemma of SlightGem. Thank you girls for your
time organising it! You did an amazing job!

I think I’ll start, untraditionally, from the latter, my
secret santa by #BBloggersSecretSanta. I was getting a present to a lovely girl
called Beth who is writing over at bethsadventuresinwonderland.
Her blog is full of amazing posts, mainly about beauty, fashion and some bits
and bops from her life. If you are intrigued what I got her continue reading,
and if you would like to know whether she liked it or not, read her posts here: Bloggers Secret Santa

I have already mentioned this fact over thousand times on my
blog, but I’ll do it again; this party season is all about sparkle! So when I
saw in Boots these amazing brocade effect nail varnishes from Maybelline, I
immediately knew that any beauty products obsessed girl would love to have them!
They came in the colours Rosy Rosettes, Woven Skyline and Foil Flash! Would you get them yourself?

The next important part of the present were small bottles
from Sanctuary Spa; a Foaming Bath Soak, a Body Wash and a Body Scrub. I regularly use
these products myself and I love the perfectly smooth skin I’m left with after
I use them! I hope Beth does as well.

The last pressie is a Paperchase diary 2014. I thought it
might be a fresh break from beauty, but very closely related. You see, blogging
and studying (as Beth does) requires strong organisational skills to be able to
manage her time right. I hope it helps. Plus Paperchase has such cute patterns!

I hope you, all my wonderful readers, had a very Merry
Christmas. I hope you all had amazing days and I look forward to hearing what products
and lovely surprises emerged under your Christmas tree this year.

If you did #BBloggersSecretSanta Secret Santa, do let me
know and leave a link below, I would love to read all about it! Either what you
gave or what you recieved!
