Christmas Swapbox with AlixKate! BLOGMASDAY15!



Hey!

Soooo it has been a few days, whoops! I have been super busy and also feel as if I am getting the flu so haven't really had the energy to write some posts, I'm sorry!!

However, todays post is a exciting one!! Alix from AlixKate (here) and I decided to make up a little Christmas Swapbox for each other this as a bit of fun and something neither of us have done before. We agreed with the budget of £20 to spend on each other which I think is a good amount. 

Today I opened what I received from Alix, OMG was I excited or whatttttt! Here is a picture of the cute gifts I received. 



Firstly, lets talk about the travel mug, how wintery is this!! It's perfect for me to put my morning hot chocolate in for on the way to work, the print of the foxes is cute too.

I then opened a candle from Bloom Collection. To be honest I haven't actually had a candle from there before but Pink Peony and Cashmere scent is divine! Next I opened up the Carmex Lip balm, I mean who doesn't love Carmex??? Lip balm is something that is always at the bottom of my handbag incase I ever have chapped lips or have forgotten a lippy, it gives your lips a bit of a shine which is nice. 

I love to have baths, especially in the winter, next time I have a bath i'll be able to use the bath fizzer that Alix got me! It was a white fizzer with the letter C in the middle...cute!! Next up was the face mask, which will go perfectly with my bath! I always use face masks so it is nice to always have some spare in case I run out. I then opened a hand cream from Sanctuary, I always fine Sanctuary products so nice to use, I never really by myself hand creams either - which I probably should start doing!! This hand cream smells so nice and made my hands feel really soft. 

The last thing I opened I am probably the most excited about, I know that Alix loves Revolution Make up and to be honest I haven't actually ever tried make up from there! So when I opened this lipstick from there in the shade 'Fudge' I was super excited to try it out!!

Thank you so much for my gifts Alix it was so much fun trying to find you different bits that I thought you may like!! Go check out Alix's post about what gifts I got here this Christmas!

Secret Santa Ideas! BLOGMASDAY9!





Hey!

Secret Santa is so much fun but sometimes I find it so hard trying to find different people with different personalities a gift that they would like, therefore today I am going to be giving you some ideas as to what to get for your secret santa! 

This video is not sponsored but I always find such good gifts from Boots. They have all different price ranges which is great as there should be something for you person. 

Gifts under £10

Candle - A candle is always a good shout as who doesn't love candles?! Here is a candle I have found which is presented lovely. It is from Sanctuary Spa, it is currently £6 which I think is great! 

Lipstick set - Lipstick sets usually have different shades in them so at least one of the lipsticks would be up your secret santa's street! Here is a set from boots, by Sleek. Sleek is a great makeup brand anyway so you know the lipsticks are going to be good! This set is £4.50 so you can even get another gift too. 

Hot Chocolate mug - Who doesn't love a hot chocolate in the winter?? You could make this your self by buying a mug, a hot chocolate sachet and some mini marshmallows. Or you could get one thats already made up, here is one from Zoella's range which is £10. 

Bath Bomb set - I personally love receiving bath bombs as I use them a lot! You can get all kinds of sets which include bath bombs. Here is a set from Soap and Glory. This set is £10 but you get three bath bombs included. 

Gifts under £20

Make up gift set - There are different sets available but I have found one that I would like to receive so I think that always helps as I know if I would like it hopefully the person I was buying for too. Here is one by Ted Baker which is £20. It includes, a mascara, Liquid eyeliner pen, Trio Eyeshadow palette, Eyeshadow crayon in Rose Gold, Eyeshadow crayon in Brown and a Eyebrow Highlighter. I would definitely say this gift is worth £20. 

Travel set - The set I have chosen is from the Zoella range again (here), it is a set including a travel mug and a cute bobble hat! This set is £18, for a cosy, stylish hat and a cute travel mug this is something that can be used travelling to work or even at the weekend! 

Jack Wills Gift set - This Gift set is super cute, you get some warm mittens and a hand cream. This set is £15, I think this is great considering it is from Jack Wills. 

Gym Set - Here is a Superdry Gym Essentials set, this includes a body mist, body wash, body scrub, body lotion and a lip balm. The set is £20 and for the the amount of superdry products you get I think its worth the money! It's so handy just to chuck into your gym bag for after your gym session! 

I hope this helped you out if you get stuck what to get for your secret santa!
