The 'What I Got For Christmas' Haul 2012!

I know a lot of people hate these kinds of posts as they find them really 'braggy' however I'm pretty sure you wouldn't have clicked this on your reading list unless you wanted to see what I recieved! The gifts above are mostly from my parents, with the odd few like the Ciate set, Carole Hochman PJs and some other bits which were from my Grandma (trendy grandma, right?) and a few of the beauty sets and perfume from aunts and great-aunts. I stupidly forgot to photograph the presents that my friends got me, I think I might do that in a seperate post, I haven't made up my mind yet.

Basically I won't go through everything and a lot of this you'll recognise from my Wishlist I did on the second DOC. I know on a few of the photos you can't actually tell what they are but the beauty products in the black boxes are Smashbox Photo Flawless Light, Nars Laguna and MAC Angel. The perfume is Gucci Flora and the Muji Storage boxes are 2 sets of 2 Drawer Wide, one normal and the other with flip top for those who are wondering. You can see how all my makup fitted in to the drawers on my Instagram rachaelocowell

I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas full of lovely people and lovely presents. Now for the boxing day shopping, eh! Do I ever stop?

    1. I haven't dared open the Ciate yet, petrified it will go everywhere! The scarf is from the Mens bit at Muji, although I know H&M did one a couple of weeks ago, may have sold out though! <3
