WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS 2016Sunday, December 25, 2016
As I sit here full and content, munching on Twiglets and watching the Great British Bake Off on the TV, Christmas draws to a close. I absolutely adore this time of year, purely for the time spent with family and friends, the crisp winter weather adding to the aesthetic of the whole occasion and the chance to binge films without judgement. Every year my nearest and dearest outdo themselves with their generosity so, as I shared with you what I bought others, I wanted to document some of the goodies they bought me. I love looking back on these and reading others so hope you enjoy it too but, it goes without saying, that I am extremely excited about my gifts, as grateful as ever and, if you see something you like the look of, make sure you treat yourself!
Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!
Mum, no matter how old I get, will always plop a stocking in my room on Christmas morning, with this year's consisting of plenty of Aussie shampoo and conditioner! Alongside these I had plenty of chocolate, some No7 makeup wipes, Elnette hairspray, a Koala keyring from her trip to Australia and a Lush bath bomb!
My Aunties clubbed together and all gave me a tonne of money to buy myself something nice, as well as this Molton Brown hand cream set. I love things like this as I can't afford to buy it for myself now I don't have the freedom for expensive splurges so this little taste of luxury is welcomed!
My best friend at University bought me this handmade keyring/necklace (the chain came with it) from the RSC of one of my favourite Shakespeare quotes. I also just finished up on a production of this play so it was extremely thoughtful of her!
Speaking of luxury, my parents fuelled my Liz Earle addiction with this set of their Cleanse and Polish, Skin Tonic, Moisturiser and Eye Bright and my skin will be forever grateful!
What was your favourite gift this year?
Hope you enjoyed,
