When I saw Georgina's post from Makeup Pixi3 regarding the beauty bloggers secret Santa, I immediately put my name down to take part as I love a good surprise (especially beauty related ones)! All we had to do was create a little box and fill it with beauty goodies worth around £15 and send them off to our secret Santa match. What I like about doing things like this is that you not only receive lots of lovely beauty gifts and discover new brands which you wouldn't normally buy yourself, you're also introduced to a new blogger and discover new blogs along the way. I was paired with the lovely Becca from Wonder Colour Behind a Frosted Window, her blog is mostly filled with beauty and fashion related posts and is a great read. I was that excited to receive my beauty box from Becca a few weeks ago, that when it arrived I couldn't resist but open everything (all the presents were wrapped up but I forgot to take photos due to wanting to open everything right away)! Becca had obviously been overly generous and nice with all of these wonderful beauty gifts, thank you so, so much- I look forward to trying EVERYTHING out! From this I have rediscovered an old favourite (I used to wear the natural collection blusher all the time and now love it even more) and I've never tried ELF products, so I'm looking forward to trying the eye shadow palette out. My favourite items have to be the nail polishes - all perfect editions to add to my ever-growing collection - I love glitter and I think the red and blue are really nice wintry shades.
Thanks again to Becca for putting together such a lovely beauty box for me (everyone make sure to follow her blog here), I hope you liked your gifts from me also! I love secret Santa, they're always so much fun. Have you taken part in secret Santa this year? What's the best Christmas gift you have ever received?
