Parcels, presents and gifts!

I was having one of those long work days where I came home tired and was starting to slightly cranky when I finally managed to pick up my parcels and there was 4 of them!

One box I was expecting from Ainaa and she promised belated birthday goodies and this is the first box I will be sharing!

Look at the amount of goodies she got me!

Every single thing is a major love, from the big heart-shaped lolipop
to the cute notepad
to the amazing postcard
to the hairpins and net from Repetto
to the amazing little set from Nuxe so that I can try everything out!
and a giant tub of Sanctuary's Creme Souffle which I have been using daily since I have received it
to a soap from Marseille
to this Rodial facial oil sample which I am using at the moment (gifted by Bob - read HERE)
to this L'occitane SPF lotion sample
and 2 of the Aesop Masque
to this Caudalie mattifying fluid (I love matte!)
and this Cowshed lotion!

I think we can all agree that to say that I was spoilt, would be the understatement of the year!
The thought that has gone into this box of love, is just.. It made my day. 
This was Box 1.

Box 2 had only 1 item but BeautyBay was lovely enough to send me the Anastasia Brow Pencil in Granite which I ordered and they sent me a wrong item in place and I asked for a refund instead of the product.

They sent me the refund and this pencil as an apology.
Thank you!

The third box was my giveaway prize from Beautee Beauty and I talked about it HERE
I will  be doing a proper review and swatches of everything when I have played with it sufficiently for a review.
So far the blush is a beautiful cool-toned pink which I do not own a similar one 
and the lipstick is just super adorable!

The last parcel was completely unexpected and made me so happy!
Basically Debenhams sent me the They're Real Push-up liner and They're Real Mascara!
Now I am no fan of the mascara and will be looking to give it away to a friend (or write me a comment if you have made it thus far!)
The eyeliner however I was so excited and practically squealing in excitement!
(I have tried it and no smudges for the 18 hours I wore it!)
I will be writing a proper review of this as I think I may have fallen in love!

If you managed the entire blogpost comment below to let me know as I think you honestly deserve a big thank you and round of applause!


  1. Round of applause for me! LOL!

    Wow! What an amazing load of products!!! Enjoy!!!

    The Aesop chamomile mask is amaaaaazing. I'm considering ordering the full size as I loved my sample so much.

    Now, if only Id come home to a stack of goodies like that Id be one happy bunny!

    1. I have not actually got round to the samples... I have a few too many things to try. However, Aesop in general, is a brand which I am growing to really admire and love, bar one little thing. I don't like tubs and jars, much preferring tubes...

      Thank you for reading the super long winded post all the way to the end! A BIG round of applause =D
