This post is so delayed but I actually wrote the whole thing one day and just needed to insert the images and just now I went to put the images in and post it and the post was gone!
Here goes again! lol.
So Christmas morning myself and Daniel woke at 7am, we heard a blip on the baby monitor and so presumed this was Alex waking for the day... we came downstairs and he was still asleep! By 8am we said screw this and started opening pressies :)
Daniel got a new hoody, Football Manager 2016 on PC, a new Toshiba laptop, a lynx shower set and a batman car you had to build yourself.
So the top image what my boyfriend got me for Christmas, or should I say Santa ;):
Ted Baker Treasure Chest - this Boots Christmas set includes: Body Wash, A Bar of Soap, Hand Cream, Bubbly Bath, Body Spray, and Body Lotion.
Ted Baker Mini Treasures - this Boots Christmas set includes: Bubble Bath, Body Souffle, Body Spray, and Body Wash.
Magnetic Key Target Board - The "Novelty" gift
Halfords Micro USB Phone Charger
Three DVDs; American Sniper, Finding Nemo and Big Hero 6 - I told Dan if he was going to get me DVDs keep Alex in mind because the movies I wanted to see weren't exactly DVD own worthy more like rent a movie once worthy!
So when asked what I wanted for Christmas, this year I really didn't want anything. Of course I need a lot of things but didn't want anything! When I looked around A LOT, I managed to spot the Ted Baker range in Boots. I had my eye on the Body Souffle, Body Lotion and because it was 3 for 2 needed to pick one more so picked the body spray! I made him take pics on his phone and all so he'd know exactly which ones to get!
I woke up Christmas morning to gift sets - I was not a happy camper! To be completely honest I had a mini tantrum moment :( I didn't want anything for Christmas because anything I "wanted" I didn't need and felt needs were more important. As a mom, I felt like I didn't have time to have all these luxurious lotions and potions and to actually use them! I have shed loads of Soap and Glory products up in my room that I haven't gotten around to using and will probably have to bin some :( Now don't get me wrong, I know the stuff I wanted is in each gift set but it's all the extras I didn't want/need! AND The body souffle I wanted is NOT the same as the one in the set (the packaging is different!).
The phone charger also left me feeling annoyed because I already have/had a phone charger but the boyfriend lost it! So he felt he should return it - yes this is nice and considerate but in my minds its a waste of money when you could just look for the lost charger (which turned up soon after Christmas!). AND to top off my dislike for this gift, it doesn't fit my iPhone!
Onto gifts from others...

I also received Urban Decay's Revolution Lipstick in Obsession and Urban Decay's Naked 2 Basics Palette from my Sister and a Boots voucher from my Brother. We got a house hamper from my parents (full of cleaning products, vouchers for food and petrol, and Shower goodies for each one of us. We got a foodie hamper from Daniel's parents that was full of candles, fluffy socks, chocolate, selection boxes, coke and more! I forgot to take pics of these and now that they are all unpacked it's too late!!
Just to note: this is NOT me bragging in anyway, I'm just sharing because I love seeing these posts on others blogs so thought I'd share mine!
Lots of Love
