I wasn’t going to post my What I Got For Christmas post but after a quick tweet it appears that lots of people love to read these kinda posts so I thought I would share mine on the blog. Me and my hubby are off to NYC in a week so we asked for dollars instead of gifts from people this Christmas but I was so lucky to get lots of lovely bits to open too so here is a little selection.
I do love a good smellies set and I got so many pretty gift sets including these cute Sanctuary crackers and M&S perfume set which has the most gorgeous shaped bottle inside. It did make me laugh quite a lot that my husband had the whole of the magical world that is Lush to choose from and chose dry shampoo!! lol but it does smell delish. I also got a HUGE Bayliss and Harding set too which I can’t wait to crack open.
You might have spotted this Missguided night dress in two of my posts recently including my Black Friday post and I was so happy to find this under my tree along with of course the obligatory pair of socks and the cutest mug from my folks which says inside Love you Deerly!! Love it!
gifts from my fave shop
Anyone who knows me or indeed reads my blog will know that Accessorize is pretty much my favourite shop on the planet. I especially love the Z Collection and got 3 pieces from the collection including this gold coin bracelet and this layered spike necklace. I also was over the moon to get this nail polish wardrobe from the beauty collection too. You can read my post all about the full Accessorize Beauty Collection here.
I also got given a really pretty handmade necklace made my Massai warriors and sold to raise money for crops etc. its so unique and different and I think it will be so pretty in the Summer.
I got a pretty cool traditional popcorn maker from my brother. Complete with retro popcorn boxes, salt and sweet shakers and popcorn kernels. Can’t wait to have a movie night and try it out. I also got a few other choccy treats including my fave Lindt sleigh from my sis. I was gutted that my other half didn’t get me any Ferrero Rocher as they are my favourite chocolate in the whole world, is it sad to go and buy yourself a big box of them?? ha ha
As I said lots of people gifted us with dollars for our trip which we’ll use towards drinks or dinner out whilst we’re away. I also got these Muji touch screen gloves so I can use my phone and take pictures etc even in the freezing temps its set to be in NYC next week!!!
Lastly I got Adeles new album. I think I’m pretty late to the Adele party and this is actually the first album of hers I’ve ever owned. After watching the Adele on the BBC program and having loved her recent track Hello I thought this album might be my cup of tea and I cant wait to listen to it in my car on the way to work
So thats a quick look at some of what I got for Christmas. Please link me up with your posts if you’ve done one as I love to read them.
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
