IrishBbloggersSS14 - THE REVEAL!!


I had so much fun taking part in the IrishBbloggersSS (Irish Beauty Bloggers Secret Santa) last year that when Aisling from Total Makeup Addict announced that she would once again be at the helm for 2014, I jumped to get my name down.

This year, I got to buy for Cindy from Girl With the Skew Earring, which I was delighted about. You can check out Cindy's blog here to see what I sent her!

My Secret Santa was lovely Danielle from Lilliwhite Rose - and she did an amazing job, I was so happy with the presents she chose for me.

When I opened the box, I found this fab basket - I thought that was such a great idea! I'm going to use the basket for my "good" makeup, so I was delighted to receive that. When I opened the big package I found all I needed for a treat night - chocolate, marshmallows, and my favourite Wispa hot chocolate. The Aero didn't last very long but I had a great time with my eldest toasting some of the marshmallows for one of our Advent activities!

There were lots of little wrapped presents in the basket too - I forgot to take a picture of them all wrapped because I was too excited, but here's what was inside!

I was over the moon with everything Danielle chose for me. Just look at that Barry M polish - it's Christmas in a bottle!

The Ciaté tree trinket is gorgeous too, it has a sparkly purple polish that will look amazing over the festive period.

There were some lovely bath products included as well, and some face masks that I'm really looking forward to trying.

I mentioned a while back that I was looking for some products to try with the Babyliss Big Hair - so this next product was a very welcome addition to the basket!

I've never tried any powdered hair products before so I'm looking forward to trying this out.

Danielle did a fantastic job and was so thoughtful and kind, I really love everything and I'm so thankful.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the other Secret Santa posts, if you'd like to have a read too,  check out the #IrishBbloggersSS14 tag on twitter throughout today.

Thanks so much again to Aisling for organising another great Secret Santa!
