Now I know some people hate these posts but personally I love reading them. I apologise if you find them offensive and/or boastful, if you do then please stop reading now! At the end of this post I am going to list some of my favourite Christmas haul blog posts of the past few weeks.
I was extremely fortunate this year and got some really lovely presents, which just about compensated for the fact I am now 24… joking of course! (ish) Whoever said a Christmas birthday is terrible must have been wrong – I definitely don’t suffer from any of this ‘instead of 2 presents I got you 1 big present’ rubbish (we all know big means ordinary…). I Have combined them into one post as, despite having stated the above, my absolute favourite favourite favourite present was a joint christmas and birthday present!
Firstly, please meet my ‘Butterfly Becca’ photo frame! This was a birthday present from one of my oldest and closest friends and I absolutely love how thoughtful it is! Now I just need to print out a lovely picture of the two of us.
This stunning Pandora necklace was a gift from my parents (cough Mum cough), I love to ski with my Dad so a reminder of snowy times is just perfect (though it has made me even more excited for my ski trip in a few weeks).
A bottle of Chloe perfume – I absolutely love this scent and it will make a fantastic addition to my collection! I have worn it nearly every day since my brother gave it to me for Christmas.
In my stocking I received some make up bits and bobs and lots of socks! I particularly like these stripy ones. I also received a mug from another good friend which says ‘Feeling happy’ on one side and ‘Feeling grumpy’ on the other side, I’m not sure what she’s implying….!
I was very excited to receive this Sewoverit pencil skirt kit! Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I am trying to learn to sew. It comes complete with a wonderful deep blue fabric and I am very excited to have a go, though I don’t think it will be for a few months yet. When I do I will share my progress with you here.
And finally, the absolutely amazing gift that I had been dreaming about for months and months and months and was convinced I wasn’t getting…..
The OLYMPUS PEN EPL7!
As many of you will know, this has been titled the ‘ultimate blogger camera’ and seems to have been a common gift this Christmas! I wanted something more portable as I find my Canon too heavy to carry around London with me – unless I know I am definitely going to have the opportunity to take photos. This way I will always have a camera on me, ready and waiting for the perfect shot. Now I just have to work out how to use it…..
So in summary I was incredibly lucky this Christmas/Birthday but while presents are amazing, I am most lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life.
