*Warning; if you don't want to see what delivered a smile to my face come Christmas morning click off now. This year I wasn't sure on what to fill my 'Christmas list' with, I guess I'm now at the age where I have most necessities and wouldn't dream to ask for such excessive gifts as I used to. As you'll see I've had very generous family, friends and neighbours with plenty of goodies and gift cards to tide me into 2014. Some gifts are missing since I'd started to use and put them away, like the huge Nando's sauce Tom included in my gifts and candle's burning away, along with clothing in the wash.
I can't possibly pick a favourite gift this year, my mum went crazy on the Lush ordering again by creating her own gift box containing all my favourite festive and items I wouldn't normally purchase myself. Christmas Angel's are SO amazing, watch out for Retro Haagenbath to pop back onto the site and order ten...you'll thank me when you smell of mint chocolate chip icecream. Babyliss Curl Secret is another gift I'm so thankful for, hopefully I can enter 2014 with more adventurous hairstyles. Having only used UV Gels I'm excited to test out the LED gel brand Sensationail in more detail - I'm wearing Sugar Plum at the moment which is beautiful along with being Harry proof - my nails don't last a day with the chip-monster. Origins Mask Marvels popped up for one night only after selling out everywhere and my Mum came tops by ordering me the trio!! This year the fashion side of my gifts were filled with jumpers - I usually have a stack GAP legging jeans and many sheer blouses waiting for me. For the rest? You can see for yourselves, plenty of dark chocolate, cosy knits and an adorable organiser.
As for Christmas Day we all had a lovely day, with the morning always being my favourite because it's just the
four five of us. I'm usually the one to wake first though this year Harry had to wake me, before demanding his walk and scrambled eggs before the day could officially start. This time last year I wouldn't have expected to have had a 6 month old puppy on Christmas Day, let alone one who got so tired opening his own presents that he fell asleep on the sofa while we finished all of ours. I always get a little sad by the end of the day, this year my Grandma & Grandad had to leave early because she wasn't very well and I miss my other Grandma so much more at this time of year since she lived and breathed for Christmas - no guessed where I get my love for Christmas from. Before you knew it the day was over and the alarm beeping for a spot of sale shopping. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, with plenty of time spent with loved ones.
