What I got for Christmas - 2014




Oh my... It feels like a millennium since I last sat down at my laptop and bashed out a blog post. How are we all? I can't believe that Christmas has been and gone for another year. In case you're wondering why I've been radio silent these last few days, it's been down to the fact that Scott and I have had our families over to Finland for Christmas and we've been holed up in holiday villas, drinking ridiculous amounts of alcohol and trying to survive a flu-like cold that has taken us all by storm. I suppose it wouldn't be Christmas if someone wasn't sick. 

Anyway... on to why we're here. I thought I'd give you a little peek at some of the lovely things that I was given for Christmas. I know that there's a touch of controversy over these types of posts, but personally, I'm dying to see what everyone got. Yes, because I'm nosy. So here goes...




Has there been a more beautifully packaged gift set ever made? Viktor & Rolf nailed this one for me.


White Company - Seychelles is my all-time favourite home scent and I was so chuffed to receive these. 





One of my gifts was this hanger for my wedding dress, (when I finally pick one) 


I also received a personalised pink diary which will hopefully help me to be more organised during the new year, some adorable, fleecy penguin pjs which are currently gracing my body as we speak, a lovely little Ted Baker jewellery case, some Avon mascara that I'm intrigued to try out, a clip on iPhone lens and other little bits and pieces too. Unfortunately, one of my gifts from Scott, (a NARS blusher set) didn't turn up in the post. Damn you postal service! Regardless, I am over the moon with the gorgeous gifts that I received this year and even happier that I got to spend it with our families together for the first time. 

What did Father Christmas bring you this year?
