  1. The perfume sounds so nice and what a lovely memory of your grandad ❤ That throw looks super cosy! The Bobbi Brown highlighter set is beautiful, the pattern in the pans is pretty too. The makeup case with your initials will come in handy for all your travels 😊 We can be matching Zoella hand cream friends! This year my family and I didn't give each other presents, we bought items for ourselves instead xx

    1. I wanted to get a nice gift from him as it’s my last one. I’d run out of perfume so I chose the one I got from him many years ago now😊 The throw is so big and cosy. The highlighter is so pretty. The packaging is gorgeous💕 It is great for travel, it means I can store all my makeup and beauty bits together in one bag. The embossed initials is a lovely touch too😁 Yes! I have the hand cream now too😊 Aaw what gifts did you get for yourself? Xx

      1. What scent does the perfume have? What colour is the throw, it looks like an ombré effect? I got myself some makeup bits and the rose gold watch and cuff set ☺️


      2. I’m so bad at describing fragrances, but rose, blackcurrant, pink pepper etc are the main notes. I got a few free samples of other Lancome fragrances and when I wore both I got compliments😊 It’s a soft grey😁 Aaw the watch and cuff set is lovely xx

  2. What a sweet memory of your grandad with that perfume purchase. 🙂
    The Winnie the Pooh nightgown looks so soft – like wearing a blanket!
    That Bobbi Brown Highlighter duo is stunning! I’ve been getting more into that brand lately.

    Makeup-wise I got the Too Face Chocolate bar palette. I specifically asked for it since I got the Semi Sweet version and ended yo loving the formula – I’m so late to the game on that. 😛 I also got a perfume, the Nuxe Prodigieux Le Parfum which smells just like their body oils.
    Clothes-wise I got a fleece jacket, some tops, and Birkenstock sandals.

    1. Thank you, I wanted to get something nice from him. I associate that perfume as being a gift from him😊 It is so soft, I love it! Yeah I was never too into Bobbi Brown but I tried the highlighter out in store and it looked gorgeous, plus the packaging is stunning! Haha I’m usually late to the game with palettes😁 Ooh that sounds lovely. I’ve tried their oils before and they have a lovely smell. Sounds lovely😊 I’m going to probably spend the money I got on clothes. I need new boots, trainers and trousers xx

      1. Haha yes I love gift cards! Me and Mark have a tonne of food, cinema and shop ones😁 Haha they’re nice and cosy. I love a thick, roll neck jumper atm xx


  3. Oh man, so many amazing items! I especially love all the PJ’s! Your partner is too darn good at picking out gifts.

    For what it’s worth, Dannii, I’m so sorry about your grandfather’s passing. ♡
