merry christmas!

merry christmas guys, i hope you all had a fab day and all got spoilt rotten?! what did everyone get? 
this is just a quick filler sort-of post of some of my favourite gifts and some sale purchases (yes, already!) to show you all the goodies i've recieved/treated myself to!

boots // 'love' room decoration // cath kidston mini bag // fashionary book // louise gray for topshop lipstick // jewellery // gift cards // yankee candle car air fresheners in coconut bay.

sewing machine // studded clutch // mcfly autobiography // jelly tots // barry m // gloves // cable knit socks

now i don't know about anyone else, but i jumped on the selfridges beauty sale hype this year, but the 6am launch on christmas day put me off a bit. turns out i'm a big child at heart and was up at that ridiculous time of the morning being excited. just aswell, because i got my hands on a huge bargain and bought a little christmas present to myself (along with all the clothes i bought for myself whilst christmas shopping - ahem). i'm addicted to marc jacobs dot, but could only afford a little bottle in the past so rarely used it, but lord praise selfridges for a half price gift set. i got the 100ml bottle, shower gel and body lotion for only £33. there was so much perfume in the sale that if you have a favourite i'd definitely check out the selfridges sale site to see if yours is on there - Daisy was only £23! it says the beauty sale doesn't start until tomorrow, so i'm not sure if christmas day was a flash sale, but keep your eye out. 
i also put in some MUA and e.l.f orders yesterday because Santa, goddam him, didn't bring me the real techniques brushes i asked for so i settled for the e.l.f brushes and of course ended up with more make-up than i ever needed. plus, MUA are offering over £20 worth of free make-up by Famous Makeup with a £12 spend which i easily notched up...  i'll be reviewing these pieces in the near future, so keep an eye on the blog.

e.l.f stippling brush, powder brush, blush brush, eyeshadow brush, baked blush, face powder and  sharpener. 
MUA lip boom, fixing spray and eyeshadow palette.

going to be keeping my eye out for the heaven & earth and starry nights palettes instore too! i was going to try the e.l.f fixing spray over the MUA one, but none of the reviews i read were that great so i'll be giving MUA a go instead.

Has anyone else found any sales bargains yet? I'll be hitting town over the next few days to spend the rest of my pennies and would love to hear what you've found.
