Beauty Christmas Lifestyle

My Christmas Haul!

I hope you all had a great Christmas! This is without a doubt my favorite time of year, I love the festivities and the chance to spend time with family. There’s also no point in pretending, we all love receiving gifts at this time of year!

At times like this I find myself becoming quite a nosy person. I love looking through everyone’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see what Santa brought! I’m sure I’m not the only one out there that does this, so in the spirit of nosiness I am sharing with you all the presents I received this Christmas.

There’s so much more that I received from friends and family that I didn’t get pictures of before writing this blog. James’s mum gave us a gorgeous new bedding set and his Nanny gave me a lovely candle holder for our new house.
I have to say I had a great Christmas this year, I spent half of Christmas Day working but it was so nice to spend some time helping vulnerable people and making Christmas Day special for them. I got to go to my parents house for dinner and from there I went to James’s mum’s house to visit his family. This was the best part of Christmas for me, not the presents, but getting to spend quality time with the people I love.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and have a Happy New Year
