What I Got For Christmas - Hellooo...

I am back, woo. Have missed writing on my blog so much, but also enjoyed the break and spending time with my family over the festive period. I am going to get slowly back into my posts for now, but will be 100% committed after new year. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, spent quality time with your family, ate lots of food, watched lots of films and got a tiny little bit merry, i know i did. I am firstly going to talk about my Christmas, my mum works night's she went in ill and ended up seeing the out of hours doctor on Christmas day who diagnosed her with a severe chest infection, my little boy is now on day three of being poorly too and barely eating anything. Thankfully my daughter just has a snotty nose fingers crossed it stays that way. But apart from this i had a fantastic Christmas and got so spoilt, boxing day we chilled out removing all the toys from silly packaging with them tied down with bits of wire and plastic and had a bit of play before getting all glamorous and going out for a meal with my family. Now i love nothing more then a good old haul seeing what people have bought or even received for birthdays/Christmas so i thought had do mine too.

Smellies - Unsure whether this is available due to being limited edition for christmas.

 Ginger Bread House, Fairy Wand, Snow Fairy & Fun Bar in pink.
Majority are unavailable to buy due them to being christmas goodies. However the fun bar is online also for £5.00. Snow fairy won't be around for long, it's on sale. The fun bar is available in other colours but the pink one smells divine. Very tutti frutti, so girly and sweet smelling, the snow fairy is also very similar in scent. Highly recommended.
