Christmas Presents Haul 2013! :D Xx

Hi there lovelies!

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and sending best wishes for 2014. I love looking at Christmas present hauls on blogs and YouTube for gift inspiration and having a little nosy. 

I always find new ideas and love sharing tips along the way. I hope you enjoy my 2013 Christmas haul, please feel free to comment below with a link to yours.

My favourite gifts include my FIRST Mac lipstick, my dad picked out the colour ‘Plumful’. I loved the pyjamas and slippers my mum gave me too. I will be doing more in depth reviews on some of the products I received :)

My Christmas was lovely; I love the build up to the actual day. I went to see the coke cola van in our local city and went to some lovely Christmas markets. I spent lots of time with family and friends which made my Christmas extra special. 

Lots of love,

Helen XxXx

How was your Christmas? What was your favourite present you received? Did we get similar things?

Empties December // Things I would repurchase

This blog post has been a long awaited but with my bedroom being redecorated I had a bag of empties on hold for a while. Because of this I’ve got more empties than usual and will be doing it in two parts, things I would repurchase and things I would not repurchase. So enjoy...

Johnson's Dreamy Skin 3in1 Facial Night Wipes (discontinued)
These wipes were a definite holy grail item for me unfortunately they are now discontinued as Johnsons has launched a new range of wipes with slightly different packaging and purposes.

Impulse Temptation Vanilla & Peach Body Spray
Impulse launched some new scents to their range this year and I’ve been really enjoying trying two that I picked up. Temptation is a beautiful fresh, sporty and summery fragrance.

Impulse Into Glamour Sandalwood & Vanilla body Spray
This is quite a nostalgic scent for me because in my teens I loved their original vanilla body spray. When this came out I had to get it, it’s a very similar scent and perfect for Autumn/Winter.

Impulse City Collection Mini Body Spray
This scent is divine and in my opinion a good one for the summer months. It reminds me of my holidays and smells of berries and other fresh fruit and 35ml bottles are great for travelling!

Ted Baker Butterfly Wings Body Spray 150ml (£5.50 Boots)
Lovely product to use, great for an instant lift the scent is quite strong and floral. The 150ml lasted me a good while. I received this is a gift set and is lovely alongside other items such as the body butter.

Original Source Vanilla & Raspberry Shower Gel 250ml (£1.00 Boots)
Fruity and light I devoured this little pick me up. The price is reasonable but didn’t last that long really, the bottle wasn’t that big. Overall I would repurchase as a treat because of the scent and it foamed so well.

Ted Baker Origami Body Spray 50ml (£2.50 Boots)
Described as sandalwood and juicy raspberry I found it to be lovely and stayed on the skin for hours. I don’t think everyone will like it as its quite overpowering but personally I love it!

Soap & Glory Foam Call body Wash 500ml (£5.50 Boots)
I will be doing a full review of this very shortly but it was a dream to use and foamed up so well. The scent is perfect!!

Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter (£8.00 Boots)
I was pleasantly surprised how effective this product was. Left my skin so soft! Will be doing a full review shortly.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse 004 champagne (£7.69 Boots)

Quite simply one of the best foundations I’ve ever used. So easy to blend using fingers. Natural flawless finish and the shade is perfectly suited to my fair skin.

Out of these products which have you used? Did you like it? Do you like doing empties blog posts also? xx
