What I got for Christmas.

I’m always dubious about writing a post about this kind of thing, I don’t want it to come across as boastful or showing off. But I love watching “what I got for Christmas” videos of YouTube, so I thought I’d share some of the gifts I received this year.

I told my family I had everything I needed and wanted, so hadn’t asked for anything specific but they surprised me as usual with some really thoug2017-12-28 17.08.38htful gifts. From my older sister I received a House of Holland wonder cube from the Bodyshop. I haven’t ever seen anything like this from the Bodyshop before. It contains a mixture of 9 Bodyshop products from their vitamin E face cream to cute polar bear eye mask. It comes in this cool cube you can move around, bit like a Rubix’s cube. I can’t wait to have a pamper night.


img_3830As a complete fluke, my eldest sister bought me a jumper from H&M which I nearly bought a few weeks ago, after seeing Megan Ellaby in it, but I completely forgot about it. I love the contrast between the blue and orangey/coral, it’s also available in black and white. She also bought me these gorgeous purple tassel earring from Next which are my new obsession.



My Mum bought me a lovely black and rose gold watch from Abbott London. I have really small wrist, so find it difficult to find a watch that doesn’t look ridiculously big. But this looks lovely and its feels very light. I love the black colour as it goes with everything, the touch of rose gold, just adds something more.


I was treated to a Soap and Glory’s spa of wonder from my lovely Grandma. I have loved soap and glory for years, their products smell amazing and feel my skin feeling super 2017-12-28 17.15.07soft. It contains a whopping 11 full size products including some of their make up products. This will keep my skin feeling super soft well into 2018.

I received a few more bits which were quite personal to me, so I have mainly included items for gift inspiration, if you have any birthdays coming up in January. I am truly grateful for the gifts I got this christmas but thing I enjoyed the most was spending some quality time with my family.


This is my last post of 2017, wishing you all a happy new year and the best for 2018.
