What I Got For Christmas 2016

I can’t quite believe that all Christmas festivities are over for another year! I am so upset and feeling a little bit lost. I always love reading and seeing what everybody got for Christmas and after asking Twitter whether I should share what I received this year or not; it seems that the feeling is mutual. If you have or you are going to be sharing yours too please leave a link in the comments so I can have a read.

I have been so lucky with Christmas presents this year! My main present this year was the Canon EOS M10 with the 22mm and the 15-45mm lens. I have had my eye on this camera for a while and I absolutely love it. It makes for a really good camera when you are wanting a DSLR quality but something small enough to take on days out. I also really like how you can transfer your pictures to your phone simply though a click of a button.

I received a snuggly blanket from Edd’s mum which is brilliant for keeping you warm during the cold nights but also doubles up as the perfect backdrop for blogging photos. So you can guess who will be really warm and toasty coming into the warmer months. While I am on the subject of blogging, Edd’s sister gifted me the Zoella Lifestyle Stationary Set which is brilliant for helping me organise my blog and posts in the new year.

I got quite a few beauty bits this year too. My most favourite being the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette from Edd. He also got me an In-Shower Body Moisturiser and the Little Snow Fairy gift set which has a miniature Snow Fairy shower gel and the Snow Fairy fun which I haven’t tried before. On the lines of Lush, my cousin and his girlfriend managed to treat me to the Butterbear gift set which includes: a Father Christmas bath bomb, a Butterbear bath bomb, the Reindeer and Robin fun and Honey I Washed The Kids soap. From my sister, she picked up a Butterbear bath bomb, Razzle Dazzle bath oil and the Sunnyside bubble bar which are some of my favourites. I also got two of the Original Source Moisturising Shower Gels – the first is in the scent Pineapple and Coconut which smells of Piña Colada and the other is in Sweet Apple and Vanilla Milk.

I also received quite a few books this year as well. The Harry Potter book set was a lovely surprise from Edd and it just makes me want to read them all for the first time properly. I also received the Monsters Inc. book from him too which is one of my favourite Disney films. I like how the storybook contains pictures from the films.

Christmas isn’t the same without a notebook or two so I was grateful to add a couple more to the collection including The Mindfulness Companion which includes quotes and adult colouring book patterns to keep you calm when your feeling stressed. I have heard about The Little Book of Hygge across many different blogs recently and although I haven’t had the chance to sit down and have a proper read yet, I am super excited to read more into it.

I absolutely love the Tsum Tsum Erasers which have now been added onto my shelf. Of course, I won’t be using them for the reason they are meant to be used. Edd also brought Scrump so I could finish my Lilo & Stitch Tsum Tsum collection. Finding Dory was also given to me by Edd. He knows me so well when it comes to Disney. It was one of the first Disney films that we watched together and so far I have watched it twice since Christmas Day, oops! I have also started collecting Harry Potter Pop! Figures so I was surprised to see Albus Dumbledore.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without receiving at least one pair of socks, right?! Well I got some really cute fluffy socks from Edd in my stocking which have those grips on which means no more slipping over in the kitchen. I also received a pair from my mum which were really festive and some popcorn style ones from Edd’s parents. I got quite a lot of chocolatey treats from various people this year as well including the Mini Moo selection box with four different chocolate bars, some Freefrom chocolate coins and gingerbread biscuits and a lovely box of Hotel Chocolat Tasting Club chocolates. They taste so good! I’m now off to indulge on more food and watch films all afternoon.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!
