the 'what I got for christmas' post

 I am back with the infamous 'What I got for Christmas' post!
People either love it or hate it but I really wanted to put mine up after enjoying everyone else's.
I'm going to spare you the long introduction (just read last year's one for that) but obviously I am not bragging at all and I'm pleased as punch with everything I was given.
So here is a little look at what I got this Christmas...

My cousin Eimear (I know she is going to read this so hello you!) gave me such an amazing Christmas present - a huge soap&glory set. It's called the Yule Monty gift set and I am so in love with it. It came with Hand Food, Heel Genius, Peaches & Clean Cleanser, The Righteous Butter, Sugar Crush Body Wash, The Scrub Of Your Life, Butter Yourself Body Lotion, Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss AND Thick & Fast Mascara. 
I don't think I will need to buy anything from soap&glory in 2014!
She also bought me one of those mahoosive galaxy bars but it was gone long before I took these photos...

My godmother's present was so thoughtful - not to sound cliche but it's very 'me'.
She got me the Rookie Yearbook One and it is beautiful. I know it is weird to call a book beautiful but this is the exception. If you don't know what Rookie is, it is an online magazine for teenage girls and the yearbook is basically a collection of articles from the website from that year.
I absolutely love Betty Crocker baking mixes (I blogged about one here.) They are so easy to make and taste so good. So I was really pleased when I unwrapped my presents to find a Betty Crocker brownie mix & a brownie maker - so cute!

We do secret santa in my family and my little sister got me for the second year in a row. And, just like last christmas, she bought me five Lush things! I got the Christmas Eve bubble bar, the Christmas Penguin bubble bar and So White, Twilight & Cinders which are bath bombs. Why is everything from Lush so pretty?
I am really looking forward to using them soon.

My big present this year was a canon EOS 600D. It is such an amazing camera and I love it a whole lot!
The mittens, scarf and boots are from River Island as far as I am aware and they are lovely.
 I asked for the Rookie Yearbook Two & I am really happy I got it - with both of the Rookie yearbooks I have so much reading to do.
I have used the macadamia oil shampoo & conditioner already and they have left my hair very silky and smooth.
If you read my christmas day 2013 post then you'd know I watched We're The Millers on Christmas morning - and I found it laugh-out-loud funny. I also got the One Direction This Is Us movie and I am totally tempted to re-watch it now. It makes me extremely excited for May (I'm going to see them in Croke Park wooohooo)
Oh and I do gymnastics so that explains the glittery pink leotard.

I am so happy with everything I was given & I am extremely grateful too.
I know Christmas isn't about the presents but they make it that little bit better.
Let me know what you got for Christmas and if you did a 'what I got for christmas' post then leave a link to it below...
