Blogmas Day 1: A surprise package…

Happy December 1st guys!

The 1st of December can only mean one thing and that’s BLOGMAS! For those of you who don’t know what Blogmas is, basically every single day this month I will be posting a brand new blog. I’ve got some fab content planned (if I do say so myself) and I can’t wait to get started! 

So anyway, enough with all that. I’m guessing you’ve come here to find out what this surprise package thing is all about. If you follow me on any form of social media you will know that today I received an email letting me know I had a package waiting for me at our University post room. Now, this is odd. No one, not even my Mum, knows my University address. To be honest, even I have to think really hard to remember which block, flat and room number is mine, so I was surprised to say the least!

On the walk to the post room I had gone from been certain it was an advent calendar to accepting that this was the start of one of those weird horror films in which I was going to be the person that ends up getting brutally murdered or something along those lines… I was hoping it wasn’t the latter. Much to my relief, it wasn’t anything that could be the intro of a tacky horror film. It also wasn’t chocolate (don’t worry, I got myself some to make up for it). It was, in fact, my first ever Influenster box. 

And what a first Influenster box it was! I’ve been sent 4 of the new PowderBleu Real Techniques Brush Collection!! In the set I have B01 soft powder brush, B02 soft finishing brush, B03 soften complexion brush and B04 soft shadow brush and they are, without a doubt, the softest, most beautiful brushes I have ever seen. They’re stunning. I’ve been using Real Technique brushes for a year now and they are fantastic. I cannot wait to add these four to my collection and let you know what I think. I’m going to be doing a range of different looks with them over the next few weeks, starting with my very basic everyday, gym look. If you want to take a look at these make sure you head to my Instagram where I’ll be posting them all and individual product reviews.

So yeah, that was my surprise package. Pretty exciting huh? I’m hoping this is going to be the start of more beauty and lifestyle content alongside all my usual fitness stuff on the blog, so make sure you give me a follow to keep up to date with that and all of my Blogmas posts, including Christmas markets, Germany, fitness tips and advice for the festive season and much much!

Hope you have all had a fantastic December 1st and have resisted opening your entire advent calendar in one day (I speak from experience. It feels good at the time but the regret is tough.) Let’s get this Blogmas started!
