Hello pretty princesses! I hope you are having a wonderful start to 2019 and have been bundling up in your pom pom hats and pink gloves during this cold Winter spell. Sadly I’ve started the new year being ill which hasn’t been fun, although I’m so grateful to have had my love looking after me, bringing me blackcurrant lemsip in my favourite pink Marie mug and making me honey on toast. We both had some Christmas money that we decided to use to splurge on a luxury king size duvet and fluffy pillows and it has been like sleeping on an actual bed of clouds, so at least whilst I’ve been confined to my bed I’ve been sleeping like a princess in pure comfort. Even though it may be a little late, I’m finally sharing a post about some of the lovely gifts I was lucky to receive for Christmas!
One of the lovely presents I unwrapped on Christmas day was this darling pair of earrings from Pandora called the Sweet Statement Heart Earrings. The little round studs look so cute and feminine with a silver love-heart centrepiece set upon a delicate petal pink. I love the subtle touch of girliness they have without being too fussy or over the top.
I am just a little bit in love with this oh so luxurious Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Body Cream that I received. It is like pure heaven! Not only is the diamond shaped jar so gorgeous, but the cream itself is the stuff of dreams, with the same beautiful scent as the Flowerbomb perfume and a dreamy whipped texture. It’s rich and smooth, makes you feel cashmere soft and leaves you smelling like an angel!
I also got this adorable knitted jumper from Jack Wills in the prettiest powder pink shade. It’s really cosy and soft, and the cable knit is such a classic design that I know I’ll get lots of use out of it. It’s such a perfect piece for the Winter but it’s also light enough that I think it will be lovely in Spring too!
I was excited to unwrap a fresh bottle my favourite perfume Chloe, especially as my previous bottle that I used throughout the year had just ran out. It’s always a scent that makes me feel the most like me with it’s light, floral feminine fragrance. I can’t see myself ever not loving it!
I also received this Cosy Night In hot chocolate set, which I don’t think could be any more suited for me! It contains a pretty white knitted effect mug, toffee waffles, mini marshmallows and hot chocolate, complete with a little whisk and all boxed up in the prettiest of packaging. I can’t wait to use it all, it will make for the perfect little Winter treat whilst cosied up on the sofa underneath my favourite pink blanket.
Also from Pandora I got this beautiful Wonderful Love Charm that I’d had my eye on for a while. It has a pretty pink heart gracing the centre and embellishing the outer edges is a whole host of sparkly gems. I just love how it looks on my bracelet and it certainly fits in with all of my other princessy charms.
Another of my lovely gifts was the Philosophy Amazing Grace fragrance, which is definitely up there amongst my most loved fragrances. I was so pleased to receive an original bottle of it as I currently only have it in beautiful limited edition packaging, which I am more cautious of using too much of for fear of using it all. It’s such a lovely, clean feminine scent that is really timeless and beautiful on everyone.
I also unwrapped a candle from Lily Flame in the whimsical Fairy Dust scent, I had one of these a while ago and adored it so I’m so glad to own one again. The scent is just magical and the pretty pink tin with silvery sparkles looks gorgeous on any dressing table.
And saving the best for last… my boyfriend only went and surprised me with a trip to New York! I’m sooo excited! We’re going in December, so even though we won’t be going for a while it will give us something to look forward to this year, and we get to experience the magic of New York at Christmas time, eek! I’m dreaming of watching a musical on Broadway, eating cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery, taking a stroll through Central Park, shopping at Tiffany & Co., visiting Grand Central Station, and sitting on the Met steps like Blair & Serena. Now I want to watch rewatch Gossip Girl and Sex & The City to inspire me for the trip!
Happy 2019 dolls, dream big & stay fancy!
