What I Got for Christmas 2016

Saturday, 31 December 2016

Hi everyone. I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas and hope Santa brought you all the goodies you wished for! I've eaten far too much food this festive period and also drank far too much alcohol (too many calories), but I've had a lovely time with my nearest and dearest and that's what matters. You all know the drill by now, I am not writing this to brag in any way I just enjoy reading these posts and know a lot of you do too! 

It wouldn't be Christmas without LUSH gift sets/goodies would it really? I was lucky enough to receive Candy gift set from one of my brothers, Merry Christmas gift from my Ry's mum, PIP from Ry's brother & his girlfriend, and finally the amazing 12 Days of Christmas gift set from Ry! I'm so besotted with the mini post box soap and mini snow castle soap that's in it, they're so cute! 
My wonderful mum got me a beautiful Vivienne Westwood bag this year. It's faux leather and is half textured matte and half smooth patent with gold hardware and a removable and adjustable strap. I'm so in love, it's beautiful. My mum also got me a pair of Vivienne Westwood x Melissa pumps in black and they've got the orb on the front. I can't wait to wear them!
I can't help but chuckle a little that the charm my brother got me from Pandora this year was another cat themed one, all the charms on my bracelet except 1 is cat related haha! Anyway, this kitty charm is an adorable kitty face, he's so cute. 2 years ago my mum got me the princess tiara ring from Pandora but it snapped a few month ago (sad face), so this year she gifted me the hearts tiara ring to replace it and it's so beautiful, I am in love. My mum also got me a watch from Radley as a surprise gift, I was so shocked when I opened it! It's a small face with a skinny brown leather strap and has gold hardware, it's simple but beautiful I love it. I also got a watch from my Ry, a beautiful Olivia Burton watch which was also a surprise!! I showed him it a few weeks ago just innocently saying I might buy it with my birthday money, I never in a million years expected him to get it for me! It's also a small face but with a skinny dusty pink strap and rose gold hardware. It's so so beautiful I just wanna stare at it and never wear it. The final item kinda doesn't really count but I've seen a lot of people do this so I have too. Whilst I was in London on the 16th I treated myself to a pair of rose gold Vivienne Westwood earrings using the basis 'a christmas present from me to me', I'm unbelievable. 
The same phrase rings true for the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser set pictured above, 'a christmas present from me to me'. Ry's nan gifted me a little beauty set from M&S in the scent Royal Jelly and honey. Ry got me the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette, which I'd just like to say is one of the most beautiful palettes I've ever seen, and also a bottle of Chanel Coco Noir perfume. My mum got me a gift set of one of my favourite perfumes ever, Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb! It comes with a 50ml bottle of fragrance and then another mini spritz, perfect for popping in my bag. Ry's mum got me 3 pieces from Kat Von D's beauty collection; two studded kiss lipsticks in the shades Hellbent and Lovecraft and an Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Vampira. My dad was very kind to gift me five Jeffree Star Liquid Lipsticks this year. Two from the permanent line; Posh Spice and Gemini, and three from the Limited Edition holiday Collection; Designer Blood, Sagittarius, and Deceased.
This is a little Miscellaneous category, I wasn't sure what these things came under so I threw them all together. First off we have a little Diptyque candle in the scent Vanille, admittedly I bought it myself under my same motto. From Ry I got two Disney Blu Rays; Zootropolis and Hercules, a book called Why Does My Cat Do That? self explanatory what it's about really, and also the best vinyl of them all David Bowie's greatest hits. My mum got me a David Bowie calendar for 2017, a cushion with what she thought was an absolutely hilarious quote cos my boyfriend and mum both say I think I'm a princess, and two of those travel perfume bottles that you can fill with your own fragrances, very handy for me. Ry's auntie got us a cute little date night box it comes with vouchers to see either a 2D or 3D film, two drinks and a popcorn, and it comes with two malteaser reindeer chocs in the box. Such a thoughtful gift.
My mum got me some Toy Story PJ's and Ry's mum got me some Disney Princess PJ's as I am a Disney/Pixar fiend. Ry got me a beautiful leopard print faux fur coat. I've needed one (wanted lol) for a long time and I'm so glad to finally have one!
Finally we have all my sweets and chocolate! I got so much again this year and part of me is a bit gutted cos two of my fillings have came out so it hurts to eat, waaah. All my sweets and chocolate come from my mum, Ry, Ry's nana, and Ry's sister. 

I am so lucky to have received so many wonderful presents and I am extremely grateful to all of my family and my Ry for being so generous.
