What I Got for Christmas!

Happy New Year everyone! 2014 was a crazy year filled with a ton of changes and even more growing up. My 2015 resolution is to ACTUALLY become a blogger....not this silly little business of posting once every few months. Now that the Christmas holidays are over with and tomorrow it's back to reality for all of us uni students I decided to do a little post to wrap up the season showing you lot what I got for Christmas. My family decided to do secret santa this year as we're all growing up and really don't need as many presents. That being said, between my secret santa and boyfriend I still was extremely spoiled! I've divided the presents into categories so it's much easier to view everything!

Bits and bobs:

Here you can see this category is just a mixture of presents I've received! The print and Polaroid paper is from Urban Outfitters and the (perfect) tea pot is from David's Tea and is super ideal because it works with both loose leaf & bagged tea! I also received Ed Sheeran's X on vinyl, About Time on dvd (favourite film of the moment ahh), and Paper Towns because I could always do with reading another John Green novel. Finally, my dad picked me up that TINY little Spectech speaker that connects to Bluetooth and is not only super convenient but also surprising loud...I'll be busting that out for One Direction dance parties surely!
 Clothing and Accessories:

This next category is focusing on the few clothing pieces I received for Christmas, and of course little accessories. Obviously from the photo you can see there is a clear monochrome trend happening here which suits me just fine! My mom picked me up a few basics from Garage, an oversized knit pullover, a pair of black leggings (which all girls can never have too many of), a white bohemian style tee, and a pair of retro high waist black jeans! A friend also gave me this daisy headband, that I love, as it'll add a little bit of colour & summer to any outfit. Finally, with a gift card, I picked up some tights, a cute little black bow, and these sweet little "love" stud earrings that you can see in greater detail below!   


This is by far the biggest "splurge" present I received and I am over the moon with it! My mom got me this Burberry perfume set which comes with the actually gorgeous bottle of Burberry body, but also come with a travel sized bottle for my bag & a body milk, which is my newest go-to lotion. She also purchased another bottle of the body milk as she knows my love for moisturizing oops! The other bits were in my stocking which you can see is an Estee Lauder makeup remover, EOS Strawberry Sorbet balm, and a nude lip pencil.  
The Big Gift: 

My favourite gift was this necklace from my boyfriend and I have a feeling it might not be everyone's cup of tea but for me it is perfect. Not only do I love the colouring and shape of the gem, but the meaning behind it means everything to me. I am SO obsessed and in love with my dog Jasper, and since Dave knows this, he did some research and found out there is actually a gemstone called Jasper, which is what I received on this lovely silver chain. I will treasure this forever and is one of my favourite gifts ever!

Leave a comment letting me know what your favourite gift you received this holiday season was!
Lots of love,
