Christmas Haul!

Merry Christmas! I hope your day was filled with happiness, and holiday cheer! I have been a little MIA for the past few days because holiday festivities have been taking over my life. On December 21st I turned 20, and since then I have been busy preparing for Christmas - If you want to see what I have been up to you can head on over to my YouTube Channel MurdockTalks to watch some fun holiday vlogs!

But anyways, I feel so lucky and so thankful for everything and everyone in my life, but I am one curious girl and I love to see what other people receive, so I thought I would do a quick post and share some of the beauty and fashion things that I received this morning!

One of the things on the top of my list this year was the Clarisonic Mia 2! I have wanted to try this for the past few years, but I was been on the fence and couldn't decide if it was worth investing in or not. But after reading a crazy number of good reviews I just decided to go for it, and put it on my list! I am so excited to use this, but it has to charge for 24hours before using it for the first time, so I can't wait for tomorrow night! I will definitely be writing an in depth review once I have tried it out for a while.

Another product that I have been lusting after is the Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret! I have seen such mixed reviews on this, but I have a crazy obsession with hair tools that curl my hair so I am happy to have received this! I tested it out on my sisters hair this morning (she was my test dummy, aha) because I was scared it was going to rip my hair out, but I am happy to report that it only snagged her hair twice, and both times were because there was a knot!

I think the results are beautiful, I can't wait to try it out on myself tomorrow! I stole this picture from her Instagram account (@chellemurdock).

I also received the fragrance "Taylor" by Taylor Swift! I have wanted this fragrance since it was released in the summer, but my broke student budget did not allow for my to buy it, so I am super happy to add it to my collection! If you're interested in the notes of the fragrance and some more details check out my previous blog post on it HERE.

I love wearing headbands in the winter rather than hats, so I received one from Roots and Coach, as well as some gloves from Roots that I can text with!

My cousin bought me this beautiful Coach Wristlet - I love wristlets as they are perfect to just throw my ID, phones, and keys into when I go out, and I love the bright red!

I am super late on the bandwagon with these next two items but I finalllllly have the Naked Basics Palette and Beauty Blender in my make-up collection! I used both of these products tonight while I wad getting ready for my Christmas dinner, and I love them both - I love how flawless my face makeup looked, I am not sure why I didn't pick a Beauty Blender up for myself years ago!

I also received some LuluLemon Crop Wunder Under Pants, a Roots Scarf, and some other things that are harder to photograph and aren't really related to any content on my blog! I hope you enjoyed seeing what I received this year! What did you receive? If you write a similar Christmas Haul post, leave the link down below and I will definitely check it out!
