What I Got For Christmas

Friday, January 2

This years Christmas presents have been as lovely as ever. I was lucky enough to spend Christmas day with my mums side of the family and I saw dads family on Tuesday for a meal out. On boxing day Scott came round so we could swap presents - I still want to get him a few extra things though because I was well spoilt.

These boots from office were from my mum and dad. I actually choose them when we were shopping a few days before Christmas because I fell in love. They still need a bit of breaking in but I'm sure they will feature in a outfit post soon. The earrings were another little gift that featured in my christmas day outfit.

These are the lovely things that Scott bought me. As I grow up my family buy me less and less clothes which makes me sad but Scott more than made up for it. He has picked items that are 100% my style. The floral skater dress and penguin t-shirt are both from Debanhams while the boots are from Dash (not a brand I know). I think he finally wants me to throw out my beloved river island pair because they now have holes in the sides.

Christmas wouldn't be complete without some gift vouchers and as newlook is my favourite shop I can't wait to get spending this one. Union square is my local shopping centre in Aberdeen with every shop you can imagine so I'm sure I will find something to spend this one on too. Between these cards and the money I was given you can exspect a haul post at the end of January.

This little present was the most unexpected - Scotts mum (and dad) bought me some lovely candles and goodies from Hotel Chocolate. They really didn't need to give me anything but it was such a lovely gesture - and I love burning candles.

Finally on Christmas morning I unwrapped my presents from my Access All Asos Secret santa. Aren't these bits and bobs pretty - the jewellery items are both from new look while the purse is an Asos one. Reading someones blog and picking out a few things you'd think they would like is great fun although I couldn't send out my presents (a problem I hope to resolve in the new year). A huge thank you to Lucia from 'U Can't Wear That' for my gifts.

A late present from my cousins. This snood is from new look and so snuggly!! It is the perfect colour to go with everything and I actually wore it within a few days of getting it. Christmas wouldn't be complete without soap and glory and I'm sure these bits will disappear quickly. I've got quite a collection of their things now and my go to for basics.

As ever I am hugely grateful for everything I've received and hope none of you take this post as boasting. I've been enjoying reading everyone elses too. Today I've started to develop a cold - I guess you can't expect your other half to be ill when your okay. Poor Scott and I!!

I hope you've enjoyed 5 days worth of new content from me - normal posting will resume next week. In the mean time catch up on all my recent posts on bloglovin.
