❄ What I Got For Christmas 2014 ❄

***Disclaimer: Christmas is a time where you should spend your time with family and friends.This post is not meant to come off as bragging. I am incredibly thankful for my family and for everything they've bought me, but Christmas means more to me than the exchange of gifts.***

I love opening my gifts on Christmas morning. It's always a fun experience to see each of the gifts that my friends and family put so much thought into. I thought it'd be fun to share what I got for Christmas this year Most of this is from my parents but a few random ones are thrown in too. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!

In My Stocking :
Barnes and Noble Gift Card- This was my Secret Santa gift from work. Honestly, I love it. Books are amazing.
Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince- So I'm currently in the process of rereading the Harry Potter series (!) and I only had up to book 5 because I believe I lost book 6 on a Canadian camping trip and 7, I have no clue where he is. I knew that I needed to buy book 6 again before it came time to read it so I bought it for my self and stuck it in my stocking!
The Body Shop Strawberry Puree- My mum bought all of the beauty products in my stocking (with a little help form me) so I knew all of them but that doesn't take away from the fact that this stuff smells so good I could almost eat it.
The Body Shop Shimmer Cube in bronze - I'm a green eyed girl who knows bronzes bring out the lighter shades of my eyes.
The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder- #Essiebuttoneffect
The Body Shop Makeup Brushes- #therewasasale
Bite Beauty Lipgloss- As far as lipglosses goes this one ranks pretty high. It's a bit sticky but it's not as bad as some could be, it's a wonderful shade and the smell is just delightful (so pretty and fruity).
Benefit Beauty Rockateur- I wanted to try a new blush (originally NARS Amour) so after walking around Sephora I decided on this baby, who has a delightful rose-gold color.


Other Gifts:
Tommy Hilfiger Cable Knit Sweater- I love this color and how warm this is. It's a perfect oversized sweater (I sized up). Outfit with this fella coming soon!!
Tommy Hilfiger Socks- I have cold feet no matter what so these thick socks are a must.
American Eagle Jegging Sweater- Sweater Weather
Aerie Bra-
dELiA*s Long sleeve top- It was a going out of bussiness sale, it's so dang soft!
Francesca's Purse- Something new in a pretty color
Hogwarts Tee Shirt- #allIwantfoxmasismyhogwartsletter
Maleficent Movie- Angelina Jolie for the win
The Perks of Being a Wallflower Movie- I ♥ this but never bought it until now.
Taylor By Taylor Swift- My parents picked this out, I haven't truly tried it yet but from what I've smelled, I'm intrigued.
Marilyn Monroe Calender

Holiday Gift Guides

With the holidays quickly approaching (gasp) I decided that it was time to sit down and make a list of the things I'm getting everybody in my life. Some are easy and others are just down right hard (hey there, mum). So I thought I'd share with you a few gift guides for a few people in everyone's life to make your lives easier around the holidays! xx Jess
