What I got for Christmas

I love reading these posts and so thought I would write my own post about some of the things that I got for Christmas. Actually, my favourite thing about Christmas isn't what I got, but spending time with loved ones and seeing their reaction to what I bought them...I should have done a "What I bought others for Christmas" post. Unfortunately, I didn't photograph any of that. A small disclaimer here, I really am not showing off. I feel incredibly lucky this year to have received some incredible gifts.

Something that I have wanted for a long time is the Sex and the City box set. I LOVED the series when it was on, adored both films and have missed it out of my life. When my sister gave me this for Christmas, I was very happy. Mr T is now looking forward dreading watching the entire series from beginning to end. Revenge for the Netflix marathons I endure! 

Mr T bought me some incredible things this year, including my hero, Nigella. I watched the Xmas Food channel almost constantly throughout December and so he bought me this recipe book. I've already handed it to him and told him this is the menu for December 2016. Haha! 

Mr T also bought me a full size version of my wedding perfume from Jo Malone. It's Peony and Blush Suede and just the most summery, floral, girly scent you can imagine! I knew I was getting this as I'd dragged him into Jo Malone at the airport when we went away in October but it was still lovely to unwrap on the day.

Finally, I wanted to show you this incredible sign that a colleague bought me. It is SO me, I loved it! It's a light up sign saying Glitter Runs Through my Veins.

I got lots of other presents from family and friends - clothings, makeup brushes, dressing gown which were gratefully received. I also received two stockings crammed full of beauty bits, chocolate, sweets, socks, jewellery and in one slightly absurd idea, WD-40 (Mr T strikes again!) 

I hope you all had wonderful Christmas celebrations and a very happy new year!

Have a beautiful day, inside and out
