John Lewis Secret Santa - My Gift.

You may remember a few weeks ago I mentioned I was taking part in the John Lewis Bloggers Secret Santa (post here). I was given Lucy from Mrs Bishop's Bakes and Banter, to choose a gift for - I won't tell you what I chose as I don't know if Lucy has received it yet, but I picked something I thought she would love. I'm not sure if we were paired or not so I don't know who picked my Secret Santa, but who ever it was did a VERY good job. Here's what I Santa brought to me:

Bare Minerals - Bring on the Night set

This was the first box I opened, and I was too excited to see this. I've always wanted to give Bare Minerals a go but just never got around to it, and now I have no excuse. My friend has this make up brush and I'm forever lusting after it and even considered going to buy it myself, but now I have my very own! I don't know a huge amount about Bare Minerals mascaras, but I checked out the wand and it's bloody beautiful. I can't wait to give the blushes a go either, I have a pressed blush and a mineral powdered blush to try out. I. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

Nails Inc Nail Diary

Okay, I won't lie, I did a little squeal when I opened this. I was actually looking at the nail diary online a couple of days back and desperately wanted to add it to my basket. I am so overwhelmed with happiness that this is now in my life. I can't control my excitement and really need to try EVERY single polish right this second. Control yourself Katie..

Thank you so much John Lewis, for letting me take part!

Have you taken part in this Secret Santa? I'd love to see what you've received.
