What Santa brought me for Christmas

I love Christmas. I love Christmas ham. I love PRESENTS!! My parents broke the Christmas linner/dunch (the meal between lunch and dinner) tradition that we normally have by ditching us for Gold Coast. My brother and I were invited to my sister's in the Shire (which is about a 30 minute drive away) but I was too lazy to drive so we stayed at home and had instant noodles. Thought about having McDonalds, but was too lazy to even drive 15 minutes down the road.

On boxing day (26/12), the bf and I flew down to Tasmania to spend some time with his family and for his mother's surprise birthday party. I didn't take any photos though, as I didn't really think photos of trees, hay bales, cows, grass, and roadkill would interest anyone reading my blog. I arrived back in Sydney yesterday, leaving my bf in Tasmania as I'm working New Years! Yay for penalty rates!!!

Ok enough rambling, this is what I received (besides cash)...
My bf bought me three bottles of Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner. I have used the one that Erinn from Enhance Your Natural Beauty For Less for a blog swap (read here to see what else I received), and I absolutely love it. Since using it, my hair does not look dry or damaged. It feels a lot healthier too!

The bf also gave me four split-end protectors by Aussie. He thought they looked little so bought four, not knowing that you only have to use a tiny bit... so this is going to last me AGES!


He also got me an Urban Decay Brow Box in Brown Sugar. I have been using this whilst in Tasmania and I love it! Normally it takes me at least 5 minutes to do my brows because they end up looking uneven, but for some strange reason I ALWAYS get perfect even brows in like 2 minutes! 

The last thing my bf gave me are two silver cleaning plates. These have been on my ebay watch list for ages but I haven't gotten around to getting them. This is meant to clean silver and gold jewellery by placing this plate in a container with hot water and washing soda (sodium carbonate), through a chemical reaction which I won't bore you with. I tend to wear my silver all the time and as a result, they're all tarnished. I haven't gotten around to using these plates yet, as I need to go find some washing soda first.


Dad got me a book called "How to win friends and influence people" by Dale Carnegie. I'm not sure what he is trying to imply... I also want to add that he made me wrap my own present!!! Ruuuude!

My sister got me a pair of gorgeous light amethyst hook earrings. Sorry about the blurry picture!

 She also got me a Korres set, containing a heap of Korres goodies.

It contains a Korres beauty bag, guava lipstick, sunflower and evening primrose eyeshadow, cherry lip gloss, provitamin B5 & rice bran mascara, and a soft eyeliner pencil.

My brother got me a Kevin Murphy Angel Rinse set. It contains 250ml Angel wash shampoo, 250ml Angel rinse conditioner and a candle.

This is a paper weight from someone whom I won't name. I don't want to sound ungrateful but WHY?! Why would you give ANYONE a paper weight?! It was chipped underneath too...

My bf's mother and her partner bought me a whole heap of nail stuff. There is another bag of stuff but I think it's still in Tasmania in the bf's luggage. So excited to use them!

That's all I received from Santa this year. What did you get? Did you have a good Christmas?

    1. I know right?! What the heck am I meant to do with a paperweight? I don't have papers I need to hold down because my room has 4 walls, and they do a good job keeping the wind out.

      I told him to get the aussie stuff from amazon, and I think that's where he got it from.
