What I Got For Christmas 2015

If you are anything like me you will really enjoy this post as I love nothing better than to sit back and take a nosey at what everyone has been given for Christmas. Also I don't in any way think that anyone who writes up these posts is bragging or showing off as every family celebrates christmas differently; some spend lots of money on one another and some don't, some also go abroad while others stay at home and I think that is perfectly fine. I'm honestly so grateful for everything I received this year whether it was chocolates or expensive jewelry and I still maintain that the thought counts more than anything...

From my friends this year I got just a few of my favourite things; chocolate, prosecco, Lush goodies and Victorias Secrets pjamas. I could not have been more thrilled. I normally don't expect much from my friends as we normally get each other very small gifts or otherwise do secret santa but from my friend Lauren I couldn't believe it when I opened the most stunning VS bracelet ever. Its honestly nothing I would have picked up but is absolutely gorgeous and makes any old outfit look so pretty. My mum has already asked if she can borrow it for tomorrow and I'm afraid I might have to put my foot down. I also got some Pandora Rings from my mum; which I LOVE and Lewis' mum and auntie both got me bracelets. I actually never ever get jewelry for Christmas as I can be quite picky so I was pretty thrilled that I got so much this year. 

I also managed to receive quite a lot of my favourite skincare, which is completely perfect as I have not long returned from being abroad and all of my daily skin bits are running seriously low. I got a couple of things from The Body Shop from my mum and boyfriend as well as the Soap and Glory Whole Shebang! I have wanted one of these S&G sets since forever but they always seem to sell out so fast so I got way too excited when I opened it on Christmas morning. My little brother also managed to get me a Liz Earle Skin Care Set with all my favourite products and I'm still astounded that a 21 year old boy managed to do that as well as also getting me the most stunning Carvela Bag! Well done bro! 

It wouldn't be Christmas without new pjamas and as well as a new soft nightie from Victoria's Secrets (which I have been wearing to death) I also got some purple Primark PJ's from my boyfriends mum which are so me and look super comfy. As usual I got some Yankee Candles and a nice one from Next along with all the usual bits and bobs like books, DVDs, and socks. My boyfriend actually got me an amazing Vegan cookbook which I could not be more excited to use!!! Cooking is fast becoming one of my favourite things and I'm building up quite the collection now.I even have my brother and dad eating vegan food at some meals which is a challenge and a half let me tell you. 

I also received some new Doc Martens from Lewis which I can't wait to wear along with other clothes and scarves and all the usual bits and bobs. I can't believe how many presents I had to open on Christmas day and I genuinely loved every single gift I was given. I honestly appreciate smaller things the older I get like chocolates or shower gels and now that I am older Christmas has become much more about giving to other people than the presents I actually receive myself. I had such an amazing day and felt so spoiled and so loved by everyone. Thank you to all of my friends and family for all of your kindness!
