(Belated) Christmas Haul

Hey everyone,

Apologies this is rather belated, but I thought I'd share what I got for Christmas this year since I didn't get around to sharing.
I know these types of post aren't to everybody's taste and there has recently been discussion about them on Twitter - however I'm really nosy and like reading them!

I also know I've done the New Years and Christmas posts in the wrong order, but you all know me by now, right?
Messy by name, messy by nature.

Topshop unicorn earrings from my sister.

Hello Kitty cushion from my parents. I collect bright, silly cushions for my bed - the others I have are either fluffy or have skulls on, rawr!

Maruaders and Julian Casablancas t-shirts from my parents.
(Mentioned in
these posts)

Deathly Hallows, anatomical heart (see here) and floral necklaces from my parents.
Topshop lips brooch and skull ring from Daniel.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre and Accessorize London bus necklace from Sam.

Asian candies from my sister (with a note attached "If you can't take the girl to Japan..." She's such a sweetheart!)

The hamster makeup bag made me laugh so much as the little face looks very much like my darling Brie!
Also love the kitty calendar as I'm going to be a crazy cat lady before soon, and I think the little owl decoration is from Accessorize.
My sister got me the Stila lip glazes. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Illamasqua Freak gift set from my parents and uncle.
My new favourite fragrance - and Illamasqua REALLY do gift sets well as you get so many extras instead of just a matching shower gel.

If you're interested, Maxine did a brilliant video about everything you can find inside:

I absolutely love everything, and am very grateful for everyone for being so generous!

Muchos love,


  1. Aw I love Maxine's videos... I miss her cutting my hair.

  2. Oh, I love Topshop jewellery, especially those unicorn earrings. They're genius!

    I am reaally tempted by the Illamasqua Freak gift set. I love the perfume, its so mysterious and yummy, plus they're make-up is fantastic.

    Looks like you got a great haul! Hope you had a good xmas and new year. :)


  3. You got some lovely stuff there! I adore the unicorns and the guinea pig bag, I have three piggies myself! x

  4. That deathly hallows necklace is amazing- where is it from! xx

  5. Ooo! I have those earrings, but in pink, and mine aren't from topshop! Oooo yum sweeties, I love the packaging on asian goodies! You have some amazing presents! I also really enjoy seeing what everyone got! x

  6. Oooo lucky it all looks wonderful, so jelly of your illamasqua set xoxo

  7. Fantastic gifts,loving those tees!!


  8. Awesome presents! Jealous. I love the harry potter stuff :)

  9. I love all the jewellery you got, especially the unicorn earrings :-)

  10. What a lovely Christmas haul! I love the unicorn earrings and hello kitty pillow. Everything you got is fabulous.


  11. What a haul! I love the HP tee, and the jewellery too :D

    Happy New Year!

  12. I recently bought those earrings and have the cat ones as well- I really love them! I'm debating buying the Illusion D'Ombre but I think I will be deliberating for quite a while longer... I think I need to use some of my other make up first!

  13. I don't like dresses with the added frill either (they always look bad on me) but, you're right. It ain't too noticeable on this one. I'm in Newcastle at the end of Feb and am fully prepared to get 'looks' while bundled up in my coat at night. I lived there for 5 months and my first evening went to KFC (don't judge - I was but a kid) at the top of the Bigg Market for tea. And my mind was BLOWN. Until that moment, I didn't realise that all the "get it out. ALL of it" stories about the Toon were true!
