What I Got for Christmas 2016

Hey Country Bumpkins!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family &
loved ones?

I’ve debated for a few days whether or not to post my
Christmas presents, with fear it could seem like I’m a bragging spoilt teenager.
However, as one of my new resolutions (to be revealed tomorrow) is all about
worrying less about what other people think, stopping procrastinating about my
blog & just write – I will embrace my new mantra & just get on with it!

So, once again I’ve been a very lucky girl & pretty
spoilt by both my parents & Dan. I might be 35, but do still get a buzz
from unwrapping gifts & wondering what on earth I’ve been bought. I was pleased not to receive a single pair of socks, although my mum did buy me 3
pairs of fancy knicks. Ta mum.

Below is a snap shot of some of my fave presents…

Top row – left to right:

  • Candles – Since reading The Little Book of Hygge by Meik
    Wiking I’m all about finding my Hygge this winter, getting cosy with a good
    book, whilst burning some candles. So, I was pleased to receive 3 new scents to
    try out: No 2 by Senini of England – a fresh mix of lily, white tea &
    cotton musk; patchouli which smells herby or hippie according to google;
    Westcountry Collection plum pudding – a cocktail of sweet juicy raisins, sultanas
    & currants with nutmeg & mixed spice – basically Christmas in a candle!
  • Earrings from Allum & Sidaway – I can’t wait to wear these
    dainty little silver link & gold heart shaped earrings from my
    parents. They’re not too in your face but enough to add a bit of pizazz to an outfit.
  • Rituals Hammam Mint Tea from Dan’s brother Toby &
    girlfriend Lucy – the box in itself is just beautiful with a lush mosaic print.
    It also reminds me of my week in Morocco & the strange taxi driver who took
    us for mint tea.

Middle row – left to right:

  • Ripcurl hoodie – was spot on from Dan, consisting of my fave colour – turquoise, fave surf brand of the moment & is lovely & snug. We just need some beach adventures now.
  • Pot of roses – my gorgeous goddaughter Evie painted the pot,
    in again my favourite colours & the roses have been sprayed gold. It’s
    currently jazzing up the grey paving & adding a bit of sunshine to winter.
  • Cosy snood – my folks do surprise me sometimes, &
    purchased this lovely cosy snood from Goulds of Dorchester which matches my
    furry Animal headband.

Bottom row – left to right:

  • Surf Café Living by Jane & Myles Lamberth – is right up
    my street & was a fab present from my best friend Rach, I can’t wait to get
    stuck in.
  • Framed picture of Dan & I – this actually made me well
    up. I didn’t realise the other week Dan was keen to take a selfie of us before
    my Christmas drinks party & sneakily printed the pic the next day. He’s a
    keeper J
  • Eau So Fresh by Daisy – Marc Jacobs – it’s been a while
    since anyone’s bought me perfume & it always smells so much better when you wear bought perfume.
    I think I’m going to get through this bottle pretty quick as it’s so easy to
    wear day or night & smells fresh & light, but not too girly.

Anyhow, I guess I have been pretty spoilt this Christmas by
the ones I love.

What did you guys get for Christmas? What was your favourite or funniest gift?
