Here’s a traditional Christmas post that I never thought I would publish. I was in two minds whether to post this or not, but my love for photographing pretty things won out. Plus, I just love to read these posts myself, so without further ado, here’s what I got for Christmas this year!
Clichéd but necessary disclaimer: I am in no way boasting about what I received, I just thought you might be interested to see a few of the things I was lucky enough to find under the tree this year.
First up, I unwrapped some super cosy Fat Face pyjamas. I think pyjamas are one of the best Christmas presents that you can give (and receive!). Bedecked in stags, snowflakes and deer, I know that these will help me survive the rest of the winter season.
I was also given a refill of the Molecule 01 perfume - a.k.a. the fragrance of dreams. I’ve mentioned this fragrance a few times on my blog and on Twitter, and it’s one of the most peculiar products that I just can’t help but love. Its unique composition of just one molecule (hence the name) means that it smells different on every person. Kate Moss is a fan, and I definitely am too.
There was also two products from R+Co’s haircare range waiting for me under the tree. Having harped on about this range that just looks the stuff of haircare dreams, I was beyond thrilled to find the Rockaway Salt Spray and the Bel Air Smoothing Shampoo in my stocking.
Next up, a skincare prod that’s been on my want list for months - the REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial. Every blogger and beauty journo has sung its praises, so I did a big ol’ squeal when I laid my eyes on this on Christmas morning.
As my family and friends know all too well, my love for dachshunds has reached new
heights lengths in 2014. I was gifted two dachshund mugs, a dachshund stuffed animal and a dachshund Christmas card that my Dad just couldn’t resist!
Finally, I was treated to Nadia Narain’s new yoga DVD by my Mum. This was a real surprise in my stocking, and such a treat after taking up hot yoga in 2014 (post on that coming soon!). She’s an incredible yoga teacher who’s taught a few famous rockstars, and now takes classes in Primrose Hill. I can’t wait to try out this DVD - gettin’ my yoga mat and leggings on this afternoon!
