My BBloggers Secret Santa from SubtleCoral

It's Christmas woo hooo! Well nearly... less than 2 weeks to go! 
About 6 weeks ago I was asked whether I wanted to be involved in a Secret Santa with some other bloggers (and PLL lovers..... that's Pretty Little Liars for you non-watchers!)!
 I love chatting to all the other girls and so I jumped at the chance and said YES!
This is the first of 2 Secret Santa's that I am involved in this year.

I received my present last week and after reading that it was from my "subtle" secret santa I immediately knew it was from Katie over at Subtle Coral - which I found funny as I had her as my Secret Santa too!
 I was definitely spoilt by Katie - so many fun presents and looking at everything I can just tell she has read my blog and knows me and what I like - thank you so much Katie you babe!
First up is something I was so excited to receive. I knew that whoever had sent me this parcel HAD to be a reader of my blog/twitter - because they would know I'd love this!
 I have been raving about the nivea lip butters for months and raspberry rose was one that I still hadn't tried even though so many people had recommended it! This has been in my coat pocket/bag since the day I got it - I'm addicted to applying it, yum!
Next is this adorable Christmas tree gingerbread man hanging ornament! I have just moved out for the first time so this is the first time I won't be at home for Christmas - so I have my own home and my own Christmas! So this is an amazing gift to help me get started with my decorations - it is on my tree now and goes perfectly! 
I found this really funny as I bought Katie some festive socks too (great minds think alike!)  You can never have too many and these are such a cute fairisle/striped pattern - no doubt I'll be wearing them on Christmas day!
I love tea!!! If you read my twitter bio more or less the first thing written is 'tea drinker'! I'm obsessed with green tea and black breakfast tea! I'm so excited to try out these cute tea bags from 'Hugs'! Thry are a brand I've never heard of but the packaging has me sold already! They also come with the cutest 'tea tweezers' too which are pink handed tongs ready to remove your teabag for you - such a good idea!
Last but not least is this fabulous kit from Benefit. I'm such a Benefit fan but one thing I've never tired from them is their skincare. I was ecastic when I opened this gift - the b.right radiant skincare kit, it was such an exciting surprise! 
There is more or less every product in here and I am so excited to try it all out , if it's anything like their make-up I'm sure I'll be purchasing the full-sized stuff in no time!

A massive THANK YOU to Katie for such a wonderful package of products - they are all perfect for me!
I love love love secret santa's and I hope both of mine like what I have chosen for them :-)
