What I Got For Christmas 2013

Hey guys, I'm back! It was quite nice to have a little break from blogging but now I have returned for the new year with lots of new ideas. 

I hope that you all had a lovely christmas! Mine was relaxing but very nice.

I've loved reading people's blog posts on what they got for christmas so I decided that it was time to write my own! 

*I am in no way bragging or showing off in this post. I am extremely grateful and happy with all the gifts I received and I am very lucky so thank you!*

A few weeks ago I upgraded my old samsung mobile phone to an IPhone (4S) which was an early christmas present from my Mum! I love my IPhone so much, its so useful! Oh and she got me this adorable phone case for it too!

The book on the left is a notebook which is really handy for me to write my blog ideas in! I also received a book called Take a Look at Me Now by Miranda Dickinson from my mum which looks really good! Also it says on the top 'The Sunday Times Bestseller' which makes me laugh because I'm always going on about how I helped to sort out The Sunday Times books for review on work experience! This book also came with a really good lip-balm, strange but cool, haha! One of my favourite gifts that I received was this special edition hardback of Pride and Prejudice; It is so beautiful and very precious. I can't wait to start reading it!

I got this lovely lipbalm set from Bodyshop which is displayed in this lovely lollipop packaging! Love it! I also got this BIG makeup bag which my mum filled with little things like a new hairbrush and hair accessories and bits :) 

I got these bits and pieces too: A photo album from my little sister, Flora. A new momiji doll (christmas special edition! I have a collection of these which I will share with you in the near future!). An alarm clock which is obviously a hint from my Mum to get me out of bed in the mornings!? This cute owl print clutch to hold my IPhone and cards in which is really handy to carry around on days that I don't want to lug a bag around with me! And some lovely lip products!

I received this g o r g e o u s coat (from Peacocks) from my grandparents! I love it so much and it is possibly my favourite gift that I got this christmas! Its so comfy and its nice to have a smarter coat instead of my scruffy everyday one.

I also got these lovely clothes! My tutu skirt is from Topshop and my roller neck top is from M&S! I love them so much. (Okay I love everything).

This lovely jumper is from New Look! (although there is one very similar in Primark too).

I did get other little bits and bobs like jewellery,hot water bottles, socks but I haven't got round to taking photos of these yet- sorry!

I had such a great christmas and I'm so grateful for all the lovely gifts that I received!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

  2. Nice that you took a lot of presents at this holidays! I'm living in poverty and I just got a cv for a Christmass. My friends helped me to get it after a free cv review here ! They really helped me to start living better life and now I can earn enough money to buy anything I want!
