First of all let me wish you a very happy new year! I I trust you’re following my lead by scoffing the last of the festive foods? I’m talking chocolates, cheese and all of the pickled goods. Which begs the question why do picked onions only come out at Christmas? I think we need to start a petition to make them an all year round snack.

I’ve been itching to get my annual what I got for Christmas post up as a final hurrah to 2015 but festive fun, baby Sadie and wedding planning has truly taken precedence so here you have it, just a few days later than planned. As always I’m beyond grateful for all the gifts I received and the selection I’m sharing came from a mixture of loved ones, family and friends.

Jo Malone screams Christmas to me so I was thrilled to get a beautiful cracker especially after I’ve coveted one for a few years.

Luxe beauty buys are always well received and so are personalised gifts. I found the coaster in my stocking from Craig and it made me smile from ear to ear as it’s something silly I say to Sadie.

I love Alice in Wonderland and even had an Alice themed 21st birthday party so this china cup is so me. I’m sure a cup of salted caramel hot chocolate will taste even sweeter from this cup.

I may have let out a little scream when I opened the Olympus Pen. 2016 is the year I will improve my photography so I hope you’ll agree that todays snaps look pretty swish.

Have you ever seen a sweeter filled copper basket? Nigella, White Company cashmere socks and Origins ginger goodies – my kinda heaven.


It may be a new year but Kez still likes to photobomb. The huge polar bear was a Christmas gift of Sadies but it’s snazzy neckwear is all mine. Faux fur perfection non?

I had no clue I was going to receive this rose gold Charlotte Tilbury make-up bag but I’ve welcomed it with open arms. It’s the perfect size for my upcoming honeymoon, eeeeep!


The boy did outstandingly well as always – introducing my new aviator style jacket from Olive Clothing with a rather creased Hush t-shirt peeking out underneath. The perfect additions to my 2016 capsule wardrobe which I’m determined to build.

Did you have the most amazing Christmas break? Which present were you thrilled to receive?
