What I got for Christmas

What I got for Christmas

I wasn’t sure if I was going to do a What I got got Christmas post this year, but after seeing everybody else’s posts, I decided what the heck, just do it. I didn’t get a huge amount for Christmas, we always stay rather low key in relation to presents, but I love everything that I got. I’m definitely not bragging in this post. If you don’t like these posts then feel free to skip it, but I know a lot of people do like them. So lets get into it…

What I got for Christmas

One of my favourite presents that I got this year was a corkboard from my parents. I’ve been thinking of buying a corkboard from ages so I’m happy to finally have one. My parents also got a me a really cute mug from New Look that says Wifi, Coffee and my Bed, which is pretty much my life so it’s perfect for me (and will look great in instagram photos). Mum always picks me out something hair product related and this year she got me a Tresemme set. This set includes a shampoo, conditioner and a 7 day straightening treatment, that all came in a heat proof bag. They also very sweetly paid for my web hosting allowing me to switch over to wordpress, and gave me a gift card for a beauty salon. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll use this for a facial or a massage.

I got another cute Wonder Woman mug from my boyfriend John, and he also bought me lots of chocolate: Ferrero Rochers, and two packs of chocolate from my favourite- Hotel Choclat. He also got me a Northern Lights bath bomb from Lush, which I used for a lovely bath after our mountain biking experience at New Years! Johns parents bought me a lovely travel book, which I can’t wait get filling up, and his sister bought me a lovely mug and bath set.

I also got some really great gifts from my friends. Laura bought me a lovely notebook and pen which I will definitely be putting to good use with my blog. She also bought me the most gorgeous Zodiac candle from a company called Typo. Rosie bought me an awesome gin cocktail book that I can’t wait to get using, and you can be sure I’ll be sharing some of the recipes on the blog! She also got me a collection of hot sauces that she thought me and my boyfriend could use together, a Ted Baker lipstick and nail polish set, and mojito bonbons.
