Better Late Than Never - What I Got for Xmas!

Hi everyone, well after a very busy 2 weeks, I finally have another post for you; a little late on the Xmas band wagon but even so, I still wanted to share with you all, the lovely gifts that I was given for Christmas :-)


As with last years post, I didn't want to mention who gave me what and I am in no way boasting or showing off etc.  I love reading these types of posts and watching youtube videos to see who got what, basically because I'm nosey and it's just a bit of fun.  So I hope you enjoy this post and please let me know in the comments, what was your favourite gift that you were given this Christmas!



As some of you may know, I love making jewellery and so I was thrilled with these gorgeous beads from Hobbycraft, I love the colours and can't wait to make a necklace and bracelet set with them.


This necklace is just so me, it's black, it has spikes and I love the layered chains too.


I've been wanting this Tanya Burr book for ages and even though it was one of the items I specifically asked for for xmas, I was still really happy to finally get it :-)


Waking up is not an easy job for me, so I was very happy with this clock.  It has a record button on it so you can record your own alarm tune, which is so fun.  I used to have one similar to this years ago but sadly it broke and had to be thrown away.   I can't wait to find some good loud music to record on to this one :-)



Yes I've added to my ever growing slipper collection!  But aren't they cute!!



This was something that I really wanted, it's a turntable for when I decorate cakes.  I love baking so I'm really looking forward to trying this out.


This next gift will also be really useful, it's an icing gun and a cookie press.  I've been looking up videos on how to use this and it's so easy, so I'm really happy about this one too.



I was given this book called The Silver Witch by Paula Brackston, I absolutely love books like this, so I'm really looking forward to start reading it, although I'm currently half way through The Host right now so it may take me a while lol.  My lovely gift-giver even had it signed by the author while they were in the book store :-)



I am in love with this beautiful keepsake box that was kindly handmade for me, it has really pretty floral paper on the top, a little paper lace border around the sides and they have even decorated the inside with pink script patterned paper.  It's so lovely and just the right size to put all my knickknacks in.


You may have already seen this picture which I uploaded on my instagram account back in December.  Being a huge (slightly obsessed) Waking Dead fan, I can honestly say this was one of my absolute most favourite gifts and I use it all the time (even right now as I type), I absolutely love it :-D


I was also thrilled with this fleecy jacket, I love the little ears they're so adorable and omg it's so comfortable, I've hardly taken it off since Christmas day (apart from washing it of course!)


I was sent this Makeup Revolutions lipgloss which I'm very intrigued to try out, it's a lot darker than what I would normally wear but it's always fun to try something new!


This little owl manicure set is so cute and the perfect handbag size, love it :-)


This beautiful Rainbow Moonstone necklace was also another favourite gift.  The gemstone shines beautiful colours and the delicate silver chain is so pretty.  I've added a link to the Etsy shop here, so you can check out the other items Sora sells, as they are all so beautiful.



I was very excited when I received this particular clock and couldn't wait to try it out as I've heard a lot about the benefits of these sunlight clock lamps.  I've been using it since Boxing Day and I've already noticed a difference.  I won't say too much now as I'm going to be doing a full review on this in the next couple of weeks.


Chocolate!!  Always good :-)


And finally, it's kind of been a very long running tradition for me to have a teddy bear at Christmas, so the new addition this Christmas, was this little cutie, I've called him Benjamin and he's adorable :-)

Until Next Time Stay Happy
