What I got for Christmas 2011

Monday, 26 December 2011

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. I certainly did. I spent a lovely day at home with my boyfriend and dad, we ate lots of food and had a great laugh.

I wasn't sure whether to do this type of post of not. I'm an only child, I'm even my grandparents only grand kid. My boyfriend is an only child too and we really do over board at Christmas and we both get very spoilt. I know I am very lucky and do sometimes get embarrassed as I know there is a lot of people who aren't as fortunate as us.

So if you are interested here is what I got:

I love this dress. The bf does have a good taste.

Last month Elf cosmetics has a deal on, spend £10 and receive a mystery box worth a minimum of £10. I needed some new foundation anyway so I was in luck.

I ordered my usual foundation and a new blusher to bring it up to the min £10 spend to qualify for the offer:

New name

Hi everyone and a big warm welcome to my new followers!

As you've probably seen I've changed the name of my blog and bought myself a fancy domain name!

So Beauty Abroad will now be "Beauty she wrote". I wanted to change it to something more generic as I might not always be abroad, but I am for now! Nothing else has changed, same old me just thought i'd give you a little update.

Speak soon,
