Hey guys, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I know that there has been lots of controversy on twitter over the ‘what I got for Christmas’ blog posts and videos, but personally, I love reading them. I don’t think that there is anything wrong with being super grateful with your gifts and wanting to share them with the world. I don’t find them show-offy at all, in fact, I think It’s actually a nice way to say thank you to the generous people who bought them for you and to show how happy you are with them.

I say sod the haters, say a big fat THANK YOU to your family and friends and share away…

You may have seen on my Instagram that I am now the very proud owner of a Valentino Lock Noir bag (Eeeeeeeee), courtesy of my AMAZING husband. I still can’t quite believe that I own such a beautiful bag, it has been a dream of mine to own one of these for a long time. Needless to say, I have been doing a happy dance around my flat with it. I’m a bit scared to take it out though, I might need to wrap it up in cotton wool first, lol. I will certainly be adding it to my insurance before it goes anywhere. I would highly recommend insuring expensive bags by the way, I did with my Chanel as soon as I bought it.

The other gifts pictured above are also from Steve. Do I have the best hubby or what?! A man that knows the best fashion and beauty products to buy, how cool is that. I am such a lucky lady.

The rest of the fab gifts are from other very kind and thoughtful family members, the Dior perfume is one of my all-time faves; it smells divine. I’m a big fan of soap and glory and Zoeva products, and the YSL beauty goes with saying, just amazing.

Just so you know – I always tell everyone, every year, not to buy me anything, but the crazy lot still do. I am over the moon and couldn’t be more grateful to receive such fantastic gifts! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

As I said earlier, I really love reading these posts, so if you have one of your own, please do leave me the link below so I can have a nosey.

Lots of love
