What I got for Christmas!

Hi guys, I wanted to share with you a few bits I got for Christmas! I love reading these types of posts, so thought I'd do my own.

Firstly, look at this amazing blankie. My mum made it for me. Yes, she crocheted it with her own fair hands! How snuggly. :)



Next, as you saw in my last post, are these bad boys. They are the Dr Marten Spike boot and they're absolutely amazing. Painful, but amazing.



Another item you've seen already is this bag. I featured it in my last post, too.




From my boyfriend I got these babies. They're the Dr Martens Drench boot and they're actually wellington boots! So good for walking to work in when it's raining! These ones are much comfier than the Spikes.



From my boyfriend's mum I got the mini version of my favourite perfume. I recently repurchased the large size for myself because I adore the smell and I hadn't owned it for quite a while. The small version is ideal for putting in my handbag whilst the large bottle sits on my bedside table.


It's Euphoria by Calvin Klein. Go smell it if you haven't already...it's divine.


A little something for myself was this tin of lipsmackers. I am a lip balm obsessive and thought these would come in handy. I've not tried them all yet, but I love the Sprite.


From my friend I got the most awesome socks in the whole entire world... LOOK! Puddy tats!


For a couple of my friends I bought the new Naked palette by Urban Decay. It's called the NAKED BASICS and features six matte shades. I obviously had to pick one up for myself as the Naked palettes are my most favourite eyeshadows ever.



My lovely friend got me a Bronzer from MAC. The perfect gift because I'd literally JUST used up the last drops of my Nars Laguna bronzer and have been wanting to try this one out for absolutely ages. It's in the colour Matte Bronze.


From the same friend who got me the awesome socks, I also received an equally awesome scarf. SKULL EVERYTHING!!! She got both the scarf and socks from Topshop, if you're interested!


And finally, I got this gorgeous midi skirt from Topshop. I've been wanting something Galaxy print for evvver and saw this at my local Topshop on the 'Last Chance To Buy' rail. I've yet to wear it as I've been at work constantly, but I can't wait to. Not sure what to pair it with yet but I'll be sure to do an outfit post soon.



And that's everything pretty much, aside from a few bits and bobs and an enormous amount of chocolate and sweets.

So grateful for all of my gifts, thank you to you if you're reading this!

If you've done a post like this showing what you received for Christmas, leave a link in the comments. I'd love to have a sneaky peek!

  4. Amazing presents! I really want to try the Basics palette. If your mum has the pattern for the blanket I'd love it! I can't crochet yet but I've been wanting to make one of these for years.

    1. The blanket is made up of basic 'granny squares'. I reckon there will be loads of tutorials on youtube! You should give it a go. Once you get the hang of it its pretty easy, even I did it once! x

  6. LOVE the galaxy skirt, so cool! the spike boots are very you- once you've broken them in properly then they'll be amazing. I have heard that they are really painful until you do!
