What I Got For Christmas


What I Got For Christmas Blog

First of all, I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas! I have been in two minds about writing this particular blog post but after asking on Twitter if it would be something that you would like me to do and receiving a resounding yes to that question, I decided just to go for it. If you're not a fan of 'What I Got For Christmas' posts then this might not be to your taste but if you're anything like me (you love a good haul post or are a little bit nosey when it comes to seeing what others got for Christmas), then I have a feeling that you might enjoy this blog post. 

I was so incredibly grateful this year, like every year and I was also really surprised to wake up on Christmas morning to some of the presents that I had included in my Christmas Wishlist post (link here). Clearly Santa had that blog post bookmarked. Hehe.

Accessorize 80s Hits Across Body Bag

Accessorize 80s Hits Across Body Bag
You know when you see something and immediately fall in love with it? Well that was what happened with this bag. If you've also fallen head over heels in love with this incredible cross body bag then I have some exciting news to share with you. It's currently half price in the Accessorize sale (link here), making it only £12.50 which is pretty spectacular for such a fantastic bag, especially when it comes to Accessorize.

Z for Accessorize Cut Out Heart Ring

Z for Accessorize Cut Out Heart Ring
I don't actually wear rings on a regular basis/ever but this one is a definite exception to the rule. It's just so dainty and pretty. I can't wait to start wearing it.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Yes Please by Amy Poehler
As soon as I heard that Amy Poehler was releasing a book months and months ago, I knew it was something that I would definitely need to get my hands on. And as it was released just in time for Christmas, it had to be added to my Christmas list. I'm definitely looking forward to reading this and I'm going to try and review it in the next couple of weeks as well.

GHD Wonderland Styler Gift Set

GHD Wonderland Styler Gift Set
I've had the same pair of GHD's for about eight years now (it could actually be even longer than that to be honest) and whilst they're still in working order, they're on their last legs. So my mum knew exactly how much I would appreciate these and she was right. She also managed to get them for a great price apparently (shout-out to the Black Friday sales), in my very favourite colour of all time; teal and in a fantastic gift set too. Well done mum!

Marc Jacobs Daisy Gift Set

Marc Jacobs Daisy Gift Set
My Gran, Papa and Aunt achieved something rather spooky with this present. Not only did they manage to guess the fact that this is my favourite perfume of all-time but it arrived just in time too. I've been rationing my current bottle of Daisy for months now and it only has a couple of spritzes left in it so this couldn't have been more ideal for me.

Lush Snow Fairy

Lush Snow Fairy
In typical style for my brother, my Christmas present from him was three days late but it was more than worth the wait. I couldn't have been more happier to see my brother return home from the sales with a big bag from Lush just for me. I guess it does make more sense as there is no way that he would have been able to buy me the two 500g bottles of Snow Fairy had he bought them full price.

Boo The World's Cutest Dog 2015 Calendar

Boo The World's Cutest Dog 2015 Calendar
Since 2014 was the year in which I stumbled across Boo 'The World's Cutest Dog' as well as Buddy 'The World's Cutest Dog's Best Friend', (remember when I brought both of them home from the US? (link here)) so you can imagine my excitement when my parents surprised me with this amazing calendar.

Boo The World's Cutest Dog Tote Bag

Boo The World's Cutest Dog Tote Bag
And as if a calendar featuring Boo wasn't enough, I am now the proud owner of a wonderful tote bag with his cheeky little face on it. It's almost too cute to use... almost. Hehe.

Christmas Presents 2014

Pug Christmas Socks - Malteasers - Marks & Spencer Hello Kitty Mirror - Penguin Slippers
And it wouldn't be Christmas without chocolate, novelty socks, slippers and Hello Kitty products, now would it?

What did you get for Christmas this year? Have you done a post similar to this one? If so, I would love to read it and see what fabulous gifts you received. Please leave me a link to your post if you did one and I will be sure to check it out.
