I feel entirely grateful and super lucky for all of the gorgeous gifts I received this Christmas, and I know this kind of post isn’t for everyone, but I actually think it’s a nice way to show how appreciative and grateful you are to those that gifted you lovely things! So here is what I got treated to on Christmas Day if you’d like to take a peek… obvious spoiler: there may be a lot of pink!
I was so lucky to recieve one of the most gorgeous makeup products of all time; the Dior Nude Air Luminizer in 002. I’d lusted after it for a while, but this particular shade had previously been a little hard to find, so I’m super happy to finally own it! It’s the most gorgeous pearly champagne pink shade and I can’t wait to get my glow on. Dior makeup is just so dreamy and luxurious and definitely one of my favourite designer beauty brands.
Jo Malone is the absolute mothership for luxe scents with their range of gorgeous candles and fragrances, so I was super heart-eyed when I opened up this little bottle of Bath Oil, which is a product I’ve not tried from the brand before but always wanted to (it’s been featured in way too many of my wishlists!). It’s in the dreamy Pomegranate Noir scent, which I’ve had and loved in candle form, and in my opinion is one of the loveliest and most relaxing scents in the Jo Malone range, so I just know a few drops of this in the bath tub is going to be heaven!
I also received back-ups of my beloved Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder which I am so so grateful for! It’s my absolute favourite powder, which I’ve obsessed over time and time again on here (or so it feels), but as it’s so finely milled I get through a compact fairly quickly and it’s pricey to repurchase. I’d been going careful with my usage of it so it’s the best feeling knowing I have back-ups (and my purse can breathe a sigh of relief…for now).
I was surprised with a new charm for my pretty Pandora bracelet in the form of this pink Bow & Lace Heart Charm. It was on the top of my Pandora charm wishlist so I thought it was really sweet that my boyfriend picked it out for me, apparently it was the one that was most me, which I would have to agree with! I love that it adds a boost of pink to my bracelet.
When it comes to jewellery I much prefer daintier items to extravagant, in-your-face style pieces, which you might know if you’re used to my style on here. So this Ted Baker Mini Bow Cuff is so perfect for a more simplistic taste whilst still being super pretty. It’s a delicate silver bangle, which is easily adjustable, and is adorned with a pretty bow detail. The Ted Baker jewellery pieces also come in the cutest little soft grey pouches tied with a pink ribbon, and then inside a cute pink gift box, so perfectly presentable!
I also received these beautiful Poetic Blooms earrings to match my Pandora bracelet. It features a delicate trio of pink, white and silver daisies and cherry blossom, encrusted with little gems. The Poetic Blooms range that Pandora released last Spring was one of my favourites from their collections, it’s so dainty and perfect. (I posted about it here).
Last year I received some gorgeous pastel coloured tea sets from Marks & Spencer and every time I use them or feature them in a photo I get questions about where they’re from! Unfortunately they no longer do most of the tea cups and plates (although they still have similar cake forks here), but they did introduce more items into their vintage bakeware range this year, and I was lucky enough to get a few more cute things to add to my collection with this pink and cream Whisk & Palette Knife Set and Cake Slice.
As soon as I spotted these ASOS x Reebok Satin Princess Trainers my eyes lit up with so many hearts you would not believe. They are a gorgeous soft pastel pink with a quilted satin design and feel super smooth, silky and cosy to wear. They are like nothing I’ve ever seen before and I adore them! They come with ribbons and normal laces so you can use whichever you prefer.
I was also treated to the dreamiest Ted Baker Quilted Velvet Bag in a beautiful soft pink with rose gold details, and it has a unique ribbed design that reminds of the The Great Gatsby. I love it so much, I’m a little scared to ruin the velvet fabric so I will be saving it for special occasions.
