Dashing Through the Presents3:00 PM
Christmas is over. I'm very sad about this. We all have to wait for another 365 days for the most wonderful time to come around again! *sobs*
Anyways, aside from me getting all sad about Christmas being over, I decided to get a few stuff from America that my sister brought over since she's home for Christmas. Aside from that, I also got a few prezzies from relatives of mine that I thought I'd share. So, let's get on with the post! Just an fyi, but be sure to grab a cup of tea or coffee, because this gon be a long one!

The Collar Purse:
Like everyone girl in this world, I watch Zoe and Tanya's YouTube videos every single week. So proud that they both have a successful beauty range that has great products and an ever cuter packaging. I bought Zoe's guinea pig beauty case last year when she first released her products and am still using it until now. It's a great beauty bag that doesn't get dirty easily. One thing I don't like about it is how bulky it is, so it gets quiet complicated when I travel.
So when I found that she released a much smaller purse that could also work as a beauty bag, I ordered it right away. The detailing is super cute and I love the color.
Travel Pass Holder:
As for the travel/card holder, I fell in love with the color. And the polkadots. It basically screams 'Zoe' when I first saw it on feelunique. Instead of a travel pass, I thought I could use it for a credit card or some cash slipped in the compartments, but sadly they only have one pocket so a credit card or any card really, is the only thing that could fit there.
The egg socks I got from my auntie who lives in America. How cute are they, btw? I absolutely adore them. I wore them right away and they are the softest thing, ever. I love how the socks doesn't slip when you take off your boots/trainers. The socks I usually wear always goes off whenever I take off my shoes and that pisses me off. So, thanks for this auntie! Needed it so bad in my life.
This is the second time I'm purchasing this products. So that says it all, really. My sister introduced me to this around a year ago and to see it last that long despite me wearing it so often is pretty impressive. It's not too dark and the brush glides on your eyebrow hair so seamlessly.
Body Shop Gift:
A gift from my sister that I thought was adorably cute! Not gonna say much because I absolutely love their Strawberry lipbalm, so I know for sure that I will love the hand cream as well.

My sister and mom are makeup fiends. Because of that, they get a lot of free samples. This is one of them! I've never actually tried any of Clinique's products, but I absolutely loved this one. I've been using Vaseline's lipbalm for a year now, and despite it moisturizing the lips very well, it doesn't last long. With this one, it glides on the lips so well and you don't need to apply it every single hour and your lips will still feel plump and less dry.
Saw this particular shade from Jenn Im's video, and once again, I fell in love with it straight away. I've been wearing Essie's 'Sittin' Pretty' for over a year now after Estée recommended it in one of her videos. The purplish color is quite similar, but obviously Virgin Snow is a lot paler and so fitting for the festive season.
I've heard a lot of people rave about Tanya's lipglosses, so I thought I'd give it a go. Not disappointed at all. The melon scent is amazing and I love how you can wear it on a daily basis, no matter what season it is. It's also very moisturizing which is a plus for me!
Make Up Forever:
I honestly don't know what shade I got, but it's a berry-brownish color which is definitely my favorite color in a lipstick. Just a warning though: the scent is good, but when you wear it all day long, it can get quiet nauseating.
That's it! All the things I got this month from my sister and other relatives. What did you get for Christmas?
Much love, Ashley xx
