Well you guys, I have been shopping again. I have been shopping a lot less since Black Friday, but I have definitely scooped some deals online. Now that Christmas is over there are a lot of sales going on. I have to say that I am trying to not go as crazy this year as I did throughout the past couple of years, and just get the things I really, really want. So in today’s post I’m going to show you what I bought throughout December and I’m also going to show you a couple things I got for Christmas this year. If you’re interested in finding out, make sure you continue reading!
The first thing I bought are a couple of Rituals products. They had an outlet online and in this outlet they still had a couple of products from the Ritual Of Anahata range from last year, which I adore. The product that made me place this order is the Ritual of Anahata Body Cream. Those who read my hauls carefully know that I already have this, but because I love it so much I really wanted another one of it. It’s not available anymore and it’s my favourite scent ever. I needed to stock up.
I also got the matching Shower Foam from this Anahata range. I’m not a shower foam kind of girl, but since this scent is such a big favourite of mine I just couldn’t not get it. Aside from that it was on sale for a very reasonable price and I needed to spend at least 20 Euro’s for free shipping. If that aren’t enough reasons to buy this, well, then you’re probably very sane.
Anyway, that wasn’t it yet. I also got another box of tea. This time I bought the Hammam Mint tea. Recently my mom and I are really into mint tea and this was super cheap so I decided to buy this so we can give it a try. I’m really excited to try this!
The last thing I got on the Rituals website was the only thing that wasn’t on sale. It’s the Ritual Of Holi Bath Bomb. Recently I’ve been taking a lot of baths and I’m super into bath bombs, so I decided why not get one from Rituals? On the little video on their website it looked really cool so I’m excited to give it a try!
Ritual of Anahata Body Creme €9,80 – Shower Foam €4,76 – Hammam Tea €3,15 – Ritual of Holi Bath Bomb €5
What I got for Christmas
Moving on to the items I got for Christmas. My mom gifted me something I have been wanting for a very long time: the Miss Dior Eau de Perfume. I already have the Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming Scent but I also really wanted the original scent. I’m so excited about finally getting this and I can’t wait to start wearing this. I’m sure this is going to be one of my favourite go-to scents of all time. I love Dior as a brand and this perfume is just genius. Thank you so much mom!
My boyfriend got some amazing and very thoughtful gifts as well. First of all he gave me a box of really delicious and fancy bonbons from Australian. I’m a huge chocolate lover so I’m really looking forward to trying all of them and enjoying them. He also got me a package of tea from Simon Levelt, one of our favourite tea stores. It’s a very sweet berry flavour and I love it a lot.
In addition to that he also gifted me the Rudolph Jelly Mask from Lush which I really wanted to try. I just can’t wait to give it a try. It smells just like chocolate mousse and it has a little red round in the center that should look like Rudolphs’ nose. Soooo cute!
The last thing he got me is another thing I’m super excited about. It’s a duo fibre blending brush from MAC. It’s the MAC 286 Synthetic Duo Fibre Tapered Brush. It looks really nice and I’m really looking forward to using this.
The day after Christmas, so the 27th of December, my best friend and I went to Rotterdam. We really wanted to try the magic box from Starbucks via Too Good To Go, which was only available in Rotterdam. We also ended up getting a box from the AH To Go and both were really amazing.
Aside from those two magic boxes we also shopped a bit, obviously. Since it’s the day after Christmas Lush was having their annual Christmas sale and it was amazing. I thought there would be nothing left but they still had so many products. This resulted in me getting a total of 10 items. 10!!!
First of all I got another two of the famous Magic Wand Bubble Bar. I already bought two of them before the sale period and since I love it so, so much I decided why not get two? I mean, they are half off now, so it’s a good deal. And that isn’t the only thing I already have that I purchased again. Some other products that I bought as well that I already had are the Butter Bear, Candy Mountain and Star Light Star Bright. I just really love the way these smell and work so why not get another one when you have the chance?!
Aside from the duplicates I also bought some things I have never tried before. Starting with the famous Snow Fairy Body Conditioner. I have never been a huge fan of Snow Fairy but somehow, this year I fell in love with it. And since I have never tried one of their Body Conditioners I felt like this was the best time to do so. I ended up getting the big jar and so far I’m loving it to pieces!
I also got something that I’ve been meaning to try for so long now, one of their Lip Scrubs. They had two scents on sale for 50% off. Both weren’t the best smelling things ever, but I liked Cranberry Fizz the most, so that’s the one I ended up getting.
Because I’ve been loving Snow Fairy so much I decided to get the Snow Fairy Jelly Bomb as well. This is going to be my first Jelly Bomb so I’m excited for that as well. Another product I’m really excited about is the Sugar Plum Fairy Scrub. I have to admit that I didn’t know this was a scrub when I picked it up, but I like it.
The very last thing I bought at Lush was something from their new collection, a Shower Bomb. How cool is that? It’s in the scent Sleepy and I think it’s such an innovative product. I can’t wait to see what it’s going to be like. It does look pretty dang cool!
The last store I bought something at in Rotterdam is The Body Shop. I had been eyeing their Enchanted Forest Candle for a while now and now it was half off, so I ended up buying it. It’s such a magic scent, I’m truly obsessed with it. If I come by a The Body Shop store anytime soon I’m pretty sure I’m going to pick up another one. It’s just such an amazing scent!
Also from The Body Shop I got this bath fizzer thingy from their Christmas collection in the Merry Berry (or something like that) scent. I saw it a while ago and I really liked the scent, but back then I just didn’t feel like getting it. Now I did, so I bought it. This was half off as well so it was super affordable!
And that’s it, that’s everything I bought and got gifted for Christmas. I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas and that you enjoyed reading today’s post. Thank you so much and be sure to let me know which items you really want me to review!
