Girly Christmas

Hello you gorgeous lot. Firstly, I would like to say Merry Christmas and I hope you had a lovely day and got spoilt rotten. I know I certainly did. Secondly, I would like to apologise for my lack of posts lately, I've just had no motivation or time to get any content down. Whoops. I thought I would tell you a little bit about my girly Christmas I had on the 23rd of December and what I received. If you read my Secret Santa gift guide you will know, I do Secret Santa every year with my 6 girls. This year was extra special as everyone was able to make it. Three of the girls don't live in Washington/Newcastle anymore, Lucy (Bam) lives in Dubai, Lucy is in Milton Keynes and Caff is currently in Leeds so getting everyone together is always a task in itself. It was so nice to finally all be together, catch up and exchange gifts.

We decided to exchange gift and have food/drinks in a local pub in Fatfield, Washington called the Havelock. In recently years we have made Christmas dinner and everyone has brought a little something but this year I think it was easier to get someone else to make the food and drinks so we had more time to catch up. 

Before opening gifts we all ordered food and drinks. I went for the beef bap and chips and it was beyond yum as you can see. If you ever fancy going to the Havelock, you have to try the chips! BEST EVER! 

Oh and the drinks order, I have to tell you about the gin and tonic beverage some of us ordered as it was beyond delicious. The gin is called Edinburgh Gin and we tried the Rhubarb and Ginger flavour. Honestly, we liked it so much they literally ran out so we ended up also trying the Raspberry one aswell but I've got to say the Rhubarb and Ginger was definitely my favourite. After, doing a bit of research on this Gin you can also get it in Elderflower flavour. Click HERE to read a little more about it, but honestly if you're a gin lover I would definitely get your hands on some. SO YUM and the bottle it comes in, is well cute. 

The bit your all waiting for..what did I get! Well there was a little mix up with the presents as Tom (Lucy's Boyfriend) texted everyone twice with the name of their Secret Santa because the first time he forgot to text me. As everyone else received two text messages, Lucy only read the first person she got and not the second (hands over eyes monkey face) so basically Sarah was receiving two gifts. You never guess who Lucy was suppose to have..yes you guessed it..ME! Not to worry though, myself and Sarah are very similar in that we both enjoy the same clothes and love trying new products so it wasn't a massive problem. 

I was really pleased with my gifts. I got the Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo kit and some chocolate. I have never tried any Laura Mercier products before and my Benefit Brows kit is running out so I was buzzing and of course who doesn't like chocolate! Once my benefit kit has all gone I will be giving this ago and of course letting you know how I feel about it so keep an eye out on my blog. 

So there you have it, my little girly Christmas. Everyone was really pleased with their gifts and it was so lovely to have everyone together even if it was short and sweet. Unfortunately, the next time we will all be together will be Summer...AS IF! I'm sure I will keep you update with our outings and gatherings when that time comes. 

Did you do Secret Santa/Girly Christmas this year? Get anything nice?
