Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year.
I love the festivity, I love how elated everyone is at knowing that have some time off (sorry, retail staff) but, most of all, I love buying and giving gifts! I find Secret Santa/Kris Kringle to be so much fun and, being one of the Perth State Representatives, I was so excited when Bloggers United Au decided to host a Kris Kringle Christmas Swap as part of this year's celebrations!
I was actually lucky enough to be able to buy for Jasmine, a real life friend of mine, occasional house guest and writer of Sweetaholic Beauty, a fantastic beauty blog. Click here to see what I got her! SIDENOTE: How good are here photos? #goals
I came home on Monday to see my Kris Kringle parcel had arrived but I'm only just getting around to sharing it with y'all as I've not been well. The lovely Joanna from Life in my Day, a lifestyle blog based in Melbourne, had me to buy for and, if I can say so myself, she did a great job! Keep reading to see what she picked up.
The first thing I noticed was a really great sized cosmetics bag completely full of mini candy canes! I haven't had any candy canes at all this season but Joanna's definitely sorted that out for me!
Next up, Joanna included the Savvy Lipstick Kit. This kit contains ten mini lipsticks and I'm really excited to dig into it! Even though I've heard great things about it, Savvy is a brand that's pretty unknown to me so I'm hoping that these don't disappoint.
Lastly I found Christina Aguilera's eau de parfum, Christina Aguilera. This light floral fragrant is feminine without being over the top and I think it'll be great for this time of year. The 30mL bottle also means it's the perfect size to throw in my handbag and go!
I am super in love with everything I received from Joanna, my Kris Kringle, and I cannot thank her enough. The highlight is probably the lipsticks. I love playing with lip products and I cannot wait to put these bad boys to the test. If you want to know what I think of them, I'd be happy to upload a review and swatch post.
Did you participate in this or any other Kris Kringle/Secret Santa this year? What did you get?
