Blogmas 2013 Week 4: Christmas Beauty Presents

This is my first year doing a Christmas haul, and I couldn't be more excited, because my family and friends got me some amazing gifts. I'll limit myself to the beauty related things for now.
My sister very generously gave me a bottle of the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair, which I've been wanting to try for ages. I will keep you posted on how I get on with it, of course. But just seeing that beautiful Estée Lauder packaging... man oh man.
My best friend, as always, knew exactly what to buy. She gave me the Peppermint Foot Scrub from The Body Shop. Essiebutton always raves about this and I have to admit, it works wonders on your feet and it smells divine! She also gave me the Bumble and Bumble Semisumo, which is just the beste thing to control fly-aways and frizz. It's a paste that does not look cakey or greasy.
The last two items are not really beauty products, but they are beauty related. My boyfriend made me the proud owner of the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual. And let me tell you, the hype around this book is completely justified. It just has it all: health tips, skincare, beauty tips, makeup tutorials... And it is such a beautiful book to put on display.
The final beauty item came from my stepmom and I never dreamed of actually getting these: it's the Timberland Premium Waterproof Boots in Wheat. These are just one of the most durable, comfortable and cosy shoes in my opinion. I know these will last me a lifetime and I'll get some good use out of them in this stormy weather.
Those were the amazing beauty products I received from my lovely family and friends. Thank you all so much, I love you loads!
