Christmas Haul.....

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas!  Unfortunately it's fair to say ours was an unmitigated disaster-Mike has been sick since Monday which lead to him being grumpy which led to arguments and tears-all part of being an expat at Christmas!!  Thank goodness for Skype, I Skyped with my mum and dad five times yesterday and they tried so hard to keep me smiling!  So lucky to have such amazing parents.

I got some ace beauty related products for Christmas from my lovely family and friends.  Here is a quick haul post to show you my gifts.  I apologise for the quality of some of the photos-I have been at work today but finished early so I was battling with the fading light.  Over the weekend I'll do some swatches-this is literally a 'look what I was lucky enough to get' post!
