What I Got For Christmas 2016



So late with this! I'm not even gonna bother with a disclaimer here, let's just cut to the chase - I'm nosy, you're nosy, let's get on with it!

Clothing

This year I was very spoilt by mama and step-pa and got an All Saints leather jacket AND coat. I'm absolutely in love with them both, the Balfern leather has blown my Zara fave out the water and the Leni Coat is the perfect 'smart' coat that I've been searching for.

YES they are pricey but I like to invest as much as I can in coats, shoes and bags because they really pull an outfit together and can make a H&M outfit look a million dollars. The coat is tailored beautifully and is very true to size. So while I can't layer much underneath it it doesn't drown me when I wear it with little dresses and skirts, which is exactly what I was after! The jacket is pure perfection, the quality is incredible and it feels so heavy and buttery soft. Expect to see it on the blog a lot! Not sorry though, cos look at it.

To be honest I wasn't really feeling Archive by Alexa Season Two but being the huge fangirl that I am I still managed to find something that I wanted. I got the Lovell shirt for Christmas and in real life it's a lot more appealing than it was on the website! The detailing is gorgeous, I'll be copying the lookbook by pairing it with a patent leather skirt and I think the collar will look adorable peeking out the top of jumpers. It's on sale now too!

The framed print was such a thoughtful gift! My brother saw the picture in a magazine and framed it for me. I'm a huge Bowie fan and grew up listening to his music so was devastated when he passed but now I have my own lovely tribute to him. Such a great quote too, I'm so pleased he felt that way. 

The cushion was a gift from my cousins, we watch American Horror Story and kind of have an obsession with Evan Peters so every time I look at this I think of our jokes! I'm glad they gave it to me, now they just have to accept I'm his wife pahaha.

I was extremely spoilt by my brother and his girlfriend (and Baby Florrie too!) because they also got me this beautiful Monica Vinader bracelet. It was the biggest surprise because I really wanted one but hadn't told anybody at all - they know me well! It's mink and rose gold, I can go and get it engraved but I think I might just keep it as it is as it's just so simple and chic.

The charm was a present from my aunt, if you look closely you can see my Freddydog! It's one of my favourite ever photos of him and now I just need to find something to put him on so I can have him with me wherever I go <3 The pretty sparkly bracelet was a gift from my grandparents, I don't usually go for blingy jewellery but I love wearing this! Like the Monica Vinader bracelet it's adjustable, so it can fit my teeny wrists!

I got some special beauty bits this year, things that have been on my wishlist for a while! The first fragrance is Rosie for Autograph Summer Rose Eau de Parfum, there'll be a full review coming soon but I love its fruity scent! My grandparents gave me a Boots voucher so I got the new one by Chanel too, I've had samples but am super happy to have a proper bottle now as I think it might just be my favourite perfume ever.

Thanks to my nan and grandad I now also have some Charlotte Tilbury in my life! I knew I wanted an eyeshadow palette and although I almost went for The Dolce Vita in the end I chose The Vintage Vamp as I love the more purpley tones. Again, full review coming soon but what I'll say for now is believe the hype!!

I did get a few other bits and bobs but I've no doubt they'll make an appearance on the blog soon! It goes without saying how grateful I am and I know I'm very spoilt! What was your favourite Christmas gift?
