♥ Christmas Presents & Sales Haul ♥


Finally, here it is: My Christmas presents and sales haul! I decided to throw both into the one post and video, because I wanted all of my Christmas shizzle to be up before New Years AND it's handier to have it all in the one place. Some of the photos below are blurry/dodgy, please excuse a) dodgy lighting - Ireland think it's nighttime, come about 3pm b) I was in a rush towards the end! I deleted some photos also, as they were so poor - but everything is shown in the video, in much more detail.
My main presents off my Mum and Dad, was money so that's how I got to go sales shopping. I also received One Direction and LIGHTS tickets, which aren't pictured below. I also ordered some items off of Asos, which haven't arrived yet, so I'll post up a seperate haul for them!
I definitely prefer this year's goodies, to last year's - I'm delighted overall.

Sales Shopping:
(L-R) All from American Apparel: Bodysuit - €46, Faux leather-look dress - €47, Spandex mesh dress (pictured in last photo too) - was €45, got it for €31.50. 
(L-R) Both the Joker t-shirt and Chloe jacket were gifts, but I included them here as it was neater looking - the jacket was also on sale! Joker tee - gift, See By Chloé jacket - gift (was €425, got it for €65 on TheOutnet) and American Apparel cycling shorts - were €40, got them for €28.
I bought both of these crop tops from American Apparel. They had a special offer on; if you bought one of them, you got a second half-price. Unfortunately there was foundation from someone on the neck of my white top, and I already wore my mint top out - so neither are fit to be pictured, haha! They are €25 each, but I got the second one for €12.50.
I bought this Cleopatra ring and dog bangle in Topshop, both were 50% off. The ring was was €19, but I got it for €7.50. The bracelet was €22, but I got it for €11. I also used my student discount, which gave me a further 10% off the items!
I went into Brown Thomas, but could only hack it all for a few minutes and I stayed in M.A.C for a while instead. I stocked up on my favourite primer; M.A.C's Prep + Prime (SPF 50), which is €29 and I bought the famous M.A.C 217 brush, which was €22.50. Neither were on sale, I've never heard of M.A.C having sales..
Nude ballet flats - New Look (€9.99)
Hardback diary - Easons (€5.99).
Faux leather bag, with faux fur pocket on the front - H&M (€39.99).
 I picked up a ton of things again this year, in Lush's 50% off sale. They had all of their Christmas stock and some stock made before November, at half price. I took advantage of this, of course!
Northern Lights giftbox - was €64.95, I got it for €32.48.
It contains: 100g Northern Lights soap, 100g Glogg shower gel, 100g Snow Fairy shower gel, Buffy body butter, Snow Globe soap, Angel's Delight soap, Celebrate lip tint, Dirty toothy tabs, Jilted Elf shower jelly, Australian Igloo sugar scrub, Pow Wow lip scrub and a Each Peach (And Two's A Pear) massage bar. 
I also picked up this adorable tin Gingerbread House, which was €17.50 but I got it for €8.75.
It contains: Candy Mountain bubble bar, Gingerbread House bubble bar, So White bath ballistic and Cinders bath ballistic.
You all know I adore Snow Fairy, so when it comes out for a limited time at Christmas - I stock up! I recently bought a huge 500g bottle of it, but I couldn't resist picking up this 250g bottle also - it was €7.50, but I got it for €3.75.
I'm sooo excited to try out this Magic Wand bubble stick, it smells just like Snow Fairy! You run the star under the tap and it creates a ton of bubbles - it lasts for a good few baths too! It was €6.25, but I got it for €3.12.

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas, and I wish you all a fantastic New Year! 
I won't post on this until 2012, so this is my last post of 2011 - sob! ;'(
