Being the nosey parker that I am - I love seeing what everyone has received for Christmas, so I thought I'd share what I unwrapped on Christmas morning. I had a lovely day, it was quite chilled out, and I definitely resembled santa at the end of the day, wearing my velvet playsuit, bloated belly protruding. Its all part of the fun, right?
I got an unexpected gift from my uncle - which included a jewellery box that belonged to my late aunt, with lots of her jewellery and some that belonged to my nan who died before I was even born. I love inheriting her jewellery. Although I never met her I still feel like I've loved her over the years with the stories I've heard, and wearing her jewellery makes me feel like I knew her somehow. My favourite pieces were a bangle and a gorgeous necklace. Look how sparkly the necklace is in the second picture, its a dream.
Dan treated me and bought me a Mulberry purse. I knew it was coming because he was terrified of choosing the wrong one and actually asked me which one I wanted before Christmas. It smells divine, it feels buttery soft and it looks amazing. Definitely in love. He also bought me Jimmy Choo perfume, two cuddly toys 'cause I'm a kid at heart, and a laptop tray.
My best friend knows me well, Nandos and chai tea - two of my most loved things. I also got a few gift cards (to be spent in the sale of course) some smellies from my lovely bro, chocolates, shoes from my mum and a few other cute stocking fillers apparently from Amber, my dog! Anyone elses parents do this?
And this is what I picked up in the sale. I wouldn't say they're too great this year (alongside a £16 Mango dress I forgot to photograph), but I am super pleased with what I did get. House of Fraser always knock 50% off selected beauty products - I got these Guerlain meteorites for £18, and gorgeous Guerlain & Lancome lip glosses for £9 each. From Topshop I picked up these simple black shoes for £30 - Not such a huge saving but they're perfect, I've been looking for a new pair of perfect black shoes for an age. I also got some half price Lush, a Next candle (these are amazing by the way) and from Boots I got half price Soap & Glory goodies and an illuminated mirror. SpaceNK have also got some amazing deals, I got this Laura Mercier palette for £8.50(!) and this Shu Uemura foundation for £10 (Free delivery code: SNKHARR).
