A Festive Haul


Although most of my money is going into savings and on Christmas presents at the moment, I do think it is important to treat yourself at this time of year. Christmas is a time to make those you love feel special, and I thoroughly believe that a little love should be extended to yourself! Here are the items that I've bought myself for Christmas- hehe! 

Beauty 
Estee Lauder Daywear Oil-Free Moisturiser 
This moisturiser is a real treat for my skin. The cucumber scent is so refreshing, my face simply drinks it up. It feels so hydrated (essential in this cold weather!) and looks clearer whenever I use this. 

No 7 Brown Eyeliner
This is a repurchase as I've been wearing No 7 brown eyeliners during the day for years. However, at first glance they appear to have changed it slightly so I hope it's still as good as normal! 

Bareminerals Bronzer
I've never tried anything from Bareminerals before but I've heard and read good things about their products. So, in need of a bronzer, I thought I'd give this one a go when I saw it at The Clothes Show last week. 

Clothes
Primark Santa Fleece
As soon as I saw this fleece in Primark I had to have it. It's so cosy and cute, it'll be perfect for Christmas day, opening presents and lazing about the house. I can't wait!!!

Primark Christmas Jumper
Primark have a brilliant selection of Christmas jumpers this year! Always a bit of fun, they get everyone in the Christmas spirit and don't break the bank. I also picked up one for my other half so we can be festive together this week and next! 

Glamorous Dress
This was a bit of a cheeky purchase when I was walking home from Uni one day! I love the colour and the style- it will definitely be worn for a night out this Christmas. 

New Look Boots
These boots caught my eye online. I'm a huge fan of wedges as they give me much needed height and make my stumpy legs look longer and thinner, but are much comfier than heels. These ones were an absolute bargain from New Look and look great with everything! 

Books
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I've heard so much about this book over the last few months that I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon. For anyone that's not read it yet, it's about a man who wakes up on his 5th wedding anniversary and his wife has disappeared and he has lost his memory. Sounds pretty intense and gripping to me!

House Rules by Jodi Piccoult
I've read one book by Jodi Piccoult and I was so gripped by it that I am now intrigued by her others. This one sounds fascinating. It's about a mother who's son has Asperger's and who has been charged with murder, and she needs to prove he's innocent.

What do you think about my purchases? What have you been buying?
