The Day That Christmas Came Again!

So, as you may know, lately I've gotten into comping. I've had a fair few wins but just before Christmas I got a phone call that blew all the others out of the water! I had missed the call but I'm so glad they had left a message as I was told I had won a £1000 World Duty Free beauty hamper! I remember entering it a while back and thinking how amazing it would be to get it so I was so so chuffed! The lady who took my details had a bit of trouble writing down my address ('Oswestry' is pretty hard to get down I suppose if you don't know the place!) but thankfully it arrived on the 30th and it was like Christmas all over again! I feel very lucky and so grateful. I didn't know what I was getting as the comp never specified but it's all amazing. Some of the face creams aren't quite suitable for me so I'll probably end up gifting them. Though I've also been told I should try and sell them to start my wedding fund!
Now onto the pictures! Sorry for the poor quality. I just did them on the bathroom floor with my phone! They're probably worthy of much better photography!

This Clarins make up set is just gorgeous and the colours are so soft and pretty.

I love candles and this Molton Brown one smells so good. Very masculine so hopefully this will be a Stuart friendly one! 

I was so excited to see this Givenchy 'Les Mini Prismes' set! It really is a thing of beauty! I'm too scared to swatch it and spoil it! 

Extremely fancy anti-ageing creams! Sisley Global Anti-Age (and some sample tubes) and La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crysyal Cream. I'm still reeling at how much these cost. How do people justify buying these for themselves?! I think if I used these I might well end up looking ten! 

I remember seeing this YSL palette on a blog a while back and lusting after it. What's not to like? It's bright pink and contains so many pretty shades. Again I don't really want to swatch it! 

I'm normally quite picky when it comes to perfumes but I adore this one and the bottle is gorgeous! It smells really similar to Narciso Rodriquez For Her which I love. The clutch bag it came with is adorable too! 

This Miller Harris 'Verger' perfume is massive! I've never had such a big perfume! Luckily it smells really fresh and zesty, and just generally 'luxe'.  I'm not sure but I think it could be unisex. 

This Shiseido Ultimune serum comes in the most gorgeous box and the bottle is very pretty! I'm looking forward to trying this as I've always wanted to try a really good serum. 

Another set of swanky creams! Lancome Absolue Precious Cells day, night and eye cream. Again when I looked these up I was shocked to say the least! I really wish I was older so I could fully appreciate these. 

Finally a lovely set of mini Armani perfumes. I particularly like the smell of Si and Acqua di Gioa.  

So there you have it. My extraordinary prize! Again I feel very lucky to have won these and I can't wait to give my sis and mum some things.
