Santa’s Deliveries – A Christmas Present Round-up


Tagged: ,
2014-12-28 16.20.08I don’t know about you, but I love a good nosey at what people get for Christmas. I’ve seen a few of these sorts of posts crop up, so figured I’d do a little round up of my own.

Santa was very generous this year, I feel very lucky indeed!
I think first up I should mention this beauty below:2014-12-28 16.37.26If you follow me on Instagram you will have already seen this as santa delivered this one early – he must’ve known I needed it for my travels on Christmas eve πŸ˜‰
It’s a beautiful leather overnight bag by Barbour. I’ve always tended to buy overnight bags in Primark previously, but I’ve been through so many as they break so easily that I decided it was about time I thought about getting a proper one. Nick and I took a little trip to John Lewis and had a look through all their overnight bags and eventually I decided that this one was my favourite.2014-12-28 16.38.05I’m so pleased with it, it’s the perfect size and has the lovely Barbour check on the lining inside too. It should last me for years and years to come.2014-12-28 16.18.28So back to the rest, I got a few books that I’d asked for, firstly Cupcakes and Cashmere by Emily Schuman, author of the blog of the same name, secondly, Design * Sponge, also from the blog of the same name, and then lastly #GirlBoss – I wanted to see what all the hype was about to be totally honest, plus who doesn’t want to read a book about an inspirational female entrepreneur?!2014-12-28 16.10.06

2014-12-28 16.11.20I’m really excited to try out the Benefit set [above right] – I’ve heard loads of good things about these products plenty of times before, so I can’t wait to give them a go.
I absolutely love the phone case [centre] – I’ve been meaning to get a case for my iPhone 6 for a while now as it’s such a slippy phone and I was constantly worried that I was going to drop it! This one is by Ted Baker and it’s such a pretty design!2014-12-28 16.21.18I also got another perfume set – I seem to be over run with perfumes at the moment! But in my opinion you can never have enough perfumes, so I’m definitely not complaining! I’ve never seen this one before, but it does smell nice, so I will certainly be making use of it.
On the bottom left is a White Company candle which smells lovely – I’m looking forward to lighting this one in the evenings.2014-12-28 16.19.28This Lancome lip colour above is beautiful, it’s a bright blue-toned red (the one which makes your teeth look super white πŸ˜‰ ) – funnily enough I’d been after a bright red for a little while but hadn’t gotten around to getting one, so this was perfect timing. It’s basically a gloss which dries matt (from what I can gather). It’s not as easy to apply as a normal lipstick but I tried it out on Christmas day and it lasted really well, through eating and drinking, so I’m very pleased with that indeed.2014-12-28 16.23.37One thing that was on my list was ‘anything from Shop Dixi‘Β ! I can’t remember where I found them, but they basically do lots of lovely what I would call kind of ‘hippy-ish’ jewellery, which I absolutely love. The necklace above [centre] is a beautiful statement necklace and I love it! Also the majority of their stuff is sterling silver, which means they don’t turn your skin green like other jewellery tends to.
The Nails Inc set in the middle is so pretty, it comes with a dark red, a very slightly mauve-y nude colour and a sparkly one in the middle. I’m wearing the nude and sparkle one at the moment, if I get round to it I’ll pop a pic on Instagram so you can see what it looks like. The sparkly one I can see going well with any colour, so I will be getting a lot of use out of that one for sure!2014-12-28 16.11.36Just look at those fluffy panda socks! I blummin’ love fluffy socks so these went down a treat – I’m actually wearing them as I type this!
Also, top middle (with the red bow on) are marzipan fruits… Now whenever I mention marzipan I get very mixed reactions! Nick and his family hate it, as do a lot of other people it seems, but my family love it! My nan always gets me marzipan fruits for Christmas (FYI, they are just balls of marzipan moulded into fruit shapes!) and I always demolish them within a couple of days. πŸ™‚ YUM.2014-12-28 16.14.29I think a special mention needs to go to this necklace below:
IT’S A PUG!!! Oh my word I absolutely love this. Nicholas did so well with this one! Just look how cute it is! Ahh I can’t stop staring at it…2014-12-28 16.15.15Last but not least, a Good Homes magazine subscription!2014-12-28 16.39.04If you know me, you know I’m a bit obsessed with home stuff and interior design, so a home magazine delivered to my door each month is bloody brilliant!2014-12-28 16.39.13So there we have it – that was pretty much everything that santa kindly delivered for me this Christmas πŸ™‚
I love looking at present posts/vids, so please leave me links if you’ve done anything similar!
