What I got for Christmas 2017! πŸŽ

Hi guys!

Let me start by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR! ITS OFFICIALLY 2018, CRAZY!

I hope that you guys had a great Christmas. I love watching and reading what people got for Christmas so I thought that I should share with you what I received.

This isn’t meant to be me bragging about what I got, I just thought that it would be fun to do!

So, lets take a look…

 

Books

Jamie Oliver’s 5 ingredients: Quick & Easy food.

This is a cook book with lots of super easy and yummy ideas. I love the idea that there are only five ingredients for each recipe, it really puts me off when there is a massive list of ingredients, ain’t nobody got time for that!

Fantastic beasts and where to find them, by J K Rowling.

I also received the illustrated version of J K Rowling’s Fantastic beasts and where to find them. The pictures are beautiful and this book works so well with pictures, perfect! ⚑️

 

Make up

I was very lucky this year with my make up haul. My lovely hubby bought me Tanya Burrs ‘Beauty and the feast’ make up box and it is AWESOME. It is full of great products from palettes for the eyes and face, highlighter, lipsticks and lipglosses. MyΒ  friend Demi works for Dior and gave me some cool samples to try out as well as a lovely pinky NYX lipstick. I also got another NYX lipstick this one is a liquid lipstick in the shade ‘Istanbul’.

I was very lucky to also receive the Zoella pamper box set. You get a brilliant selection of products in there, perfect for a pamper. I love the Snowella scent, its really fresh. I especially like the scent in the hand cream.

In the box you get…

  • The Winter Wonderhand Hand cream
  • Body puff
  • Snow silky body lotion
  • Snow polished body polish
  • Snow smooth body butter
  • X2 Sachets of a ‘splash of milk’ bath milk powder

The box is really lovely too, perfect for storage once you’ve used the products.

The Body Shop shower gel. I really love these body shop shower gels, the seasonal scents are lovely. I really enjoyed the pumpkin and sweet vanilla scent in Autumn and in Winter they have released this one, Frosted berries. It smells so fruity and delicious.

LUSH is one of my favourite shops and I LOVE their bath bombs. This year I got a few different things from LUSH that I havn’t had before and a few that I have.

My sister got me my favourite LUSH product off all time, ‘The Comfort.er’ bubble bar. A super fruity scent that creates the most awesome bubbles

I also got the Butterbear bath bomb which is lovely and soft on your skin, with cocoa butter.

My hubby got me one of LUSH’S new body sprays, the one he got me is called ‘Twilight’ This is supposed to help you sleep and the predominant fragrance is Lavender, it smells so soothing and makes you feel relaxed and cosy. I spray this before bed and use alongside ‘Sleepy’ the body lotion.

In the colourful set above,Β  the ‘Intergalactic’ bath set, you get the ‘Thundersnow’ bath bomb, The ‘Shoot for the stars’ bath bomb and the ‘Intergalactic’ bath bomb. I can’t wait to try these out!

 

Other…

I also received some vouchers. A Primark Voucher, my favourite shop! I’m looking forward to spending that! Me and the hubby also got a Nando’s voucher, we cant wait to go on a date night and use that too, we love a cheeky Nando’s.

My father In law (knowing the avid Harry Potter fan that I am) got me two tickets to the Harry Potter book night at our local museum. Me and my sister tried to get tickets for this event last year but it sold out! We can’t wait to go, the place is decorated, everyone dresses up and you have activities, food, Harry Potter themed cocktails and so on. Its going to be so much fun!

Is it even Christmas if you don’t ett a Terry’s chocolate orange!?!? These are my ultimate fave, a Christmas must have and a great stocking filler too. Mine didn’t make it past Christmas day haha.

So those are just a few of the lovely pressies that I got for Christmas this year (or technically last year!! So confusing)

I hope you enjoyed this blog post! I’m going to have to start a list of some blog posts I’d like to write in the coming weeks/months, it was so easy throughout December to create Christmassy and festive posts but now I really need to get thinking about my 2018 content, its so much harder without such a blatent theme.

Any suggestions would be greatly welcome guys!

 

Until next time,

My Tanya Burr Advent calendar! The final day: Blogmas day 22

Hi guys!

 

So, today is the final day of my Tanya Burr beauty advent calendar ‘Tanya’s treats’

Ive really enjoyed having a beauty advent calendar again this year and have got some super sparkly and glitzy products ti try out.

They should see me through to new years too.

Lets look behind window 12…

 

It’s a bit more sparkle in the form of a glitter nail varnish. This one is called ‘Glitter frosting’ and is a beautiful goldy, bronzy toned glitter polish.

I actually LOVE this colour, I haven’t got anything like this tone in my collection and it is SO pretty!!

 

It is a bit different to the other glitter I got as it isn’t just clear with glitter particles in it but it has a shimmery background tone to it too.

3 days to go!!

 

Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar : Blogmas day 20 πŸ—’

Hi guys!

Today is the penultimate window of my Tanya Burr advent calendar! Its gone so quickly, December always seems to go so quickly and even though I love that Christmas is only 5 days away I’m also aware that it will all be over soon.

I hope these next few days don’t go too quickly as I have now finished my main job for the holidays and so I want to enjoy a bit of festive time off before the big day.

So, lets take a look behind number 11…

It is another little glitter pot! This one is called ‘Midnight magic’ This is an eye glitter pot and is perfect for creating a sparkly, smokey eye. A definite must for a Christmas party or drinks with friends over the festive period.

Check back for day 22 of Blogmas and the last window of my Tanya Burr advent.

5 days to go!

 

Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 18

Hi guys!

I’ve only got a few windows left!

Behind the latest window was…

AΒ  mini nail file. Its a lovely dark and christmassy red. It is the perfect size to pop into your handbag.

Hopefully if my nails are nice and smooth I won’t be so tempted to bite them!! πŸ’…

Sorry its a short post but there’s only so much I can write about a nail file haha.

 

ONE WEEK TO GO UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!

This time next week it will be Christmas πŸŽ…

 

Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 16

Hi guys!

It’s time for another look inside my Tanya Burr beauty advent calendar!

Let’s dive straight in…

Behind number nine is a lovely lip gloss in the shade ‘Ice queen’. Its a lovely shiny, slightly glittery/iridescent white and clear gloss.

It’s really pretty and perfect for this frosty, festive season.

This would be great on its own or as a top coat to add a bit of shine and sparkle to your lips.

Super pretty!

 

Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 14

Hi guys!

IT’S LESS THAN 2 WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!! That’s crazy πŸŽ„πŸŽ„

It’s also time for another look in my Tanya treats beauty advent calendar.

Let’s see what I got…


Behind the latest window was a little compact mirror. It’s a lovely matte dark red colour with a matte bronze edging. It has ‘Tanya Burr cosmetics’ I  her trademark font (which I love btw) 

There’s also a little ‘TB’ in a heart above the writint, in the same lovely matte bronzy colour.

This is really pretty and the perfect size for popping into your handbag.
Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 12! β„️

Hi guys!

Another day, another window. I am loving having a beauty advent calendar again this year, although its so hard to stop myself from opening one everyday for 12 days instead of every other day!! So far so good but its very tempting!

Lets take a look behind the next window…

 

This time I got a little pot of eye glitter. The glitter is called ‘Let it snow’ ❄️

The glitter is a lovely white and sparkly tone, when it catches the light it shines lots of different colours. Its really pretty and super festive.

I love this product as I don’t do my eye make up very much so I am excited to try out something different. This is super festive and sparkly and will be great for a Christmassy/party look. I think I am going to give this a try for my work Christmas meal on Friday!

The packaging is super simple and cute, I love the shape of the pot. plus its the perfect size to pop into any make up bag.

 

Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 10

Hi guys!

Today’s another look into my Tanya Burr advent calender.

Let’s see what’s inside…

Behind the next window was another lovely eyeliner. This one is also sparkly bit is a silver glitter liner.

As I said previously I don’t have many and these glitter ones are much easier to apply. I love that I have both gold and silver glitter now, great for completing a casual eye look or for glitzing up a Christmas party make up look.

These are great for eyeliner novices as you can’t really tell if you’ve applied it 100% nearly or not because it is just glitter in a clear fluid . It looks really pretty and I can’t wait to use this one too.

Β πŸŽ„15 DAYS TO GO!! πŸŽ„

Β It’s coming around so quickly!!

Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 8

Hi guys!

So, its time to have a look behind another window of my Tanya Burr advent calendar.

Let’s take a look…

Today’s little gift was a lovely little lipgloss.

This lip gloss is called ‘Pink fondant’ and is a lovely pinky nude. It reminds me of Tanya’s ‘Pink cocoa’ lipstick but in lip gloss form, if you’ve tried ‘Pink cocoa’ you’ll know how pretty the shade is.

This gloss is a perfect everyday nude with a lovely pinky tone to it. It would also be great to accompany a smokey eye make up look for the evening.

Like the other gloss, it glides on beautifully, looks lovely on and isn’t at all sticky. For a lip gloss it is surprisinglyΒ  long lasting too.

I am really pleased with this and am sure this is going to be a new staple for my make up collection.

Seeya tomorrow!

17 days to go!

Until next time,

My Tanya Burr advent calendar: Blogmas day 6 πŸ””

Hi guys!

Today is day 6 of Blogmas (already!!!) Only 19 days to go until Christmas day.

 

Here is what’s behind window number five of my Tanya Burr beauty advent calender…

A lovely glittery and super sparkly nail varnish.

This polish is called ‘Glitter rain’ and is a lovely silver glitter.

The glitter is great as it adds a festive, party sparkle to your nails (great for those Christmas parties) But is a bit different from the usual gold glitter.

Great for creating a festive, frosty look! ❄

The glitter is fine with larger bits of glitter too which is great on it’s own for a simple touch of sparkle but its also great over other colours or to add a accent nail.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my advent calender.

Who else is loving having a little choc in the morning btw!?! LOVE IT.

Until next time,

Roseanne πŸ™‚
