Christmas has come and gone, and like every single year, my friends and family spoiled me rotten. I absolutely love reading Christmas and Birthday hauls and actually get some gift ideas from them for the next year. However, I can understand that some people may find them a bit braggy, so I'd just like to take this opportunity to say, that this post isn't meant to come across that way, I'm just creating what I love to read. If your not a fan, feel free to click on another post.
Formalities out of the way, let's get on with the good stuff. As I said, I got very very spoilt this year, and some things weren't even able to be photographed. Like my secret Santa present from work. My amazing desk neighbour Sarah got me a gingerbread house kit and a Bailey's Hot Chocolate set, but these didn't make it to Christmas day. Oops. My parents also paid the deposit for my flights and trip to America in August, as well as enrolling me on another Jewellery making course starting this month. See, spoilt!
For the things that were under my tree on Christmas Day, well they were completely unexpected. My family got me lot's of Bomb Cosmetics and Lush products to last me well into the New Year, and my Dad thought I'd like an electric toothbrush as I want to get my teeth naturally whiter (he was right. I did). My mum sneakily got me an Jawbone Up2 to help motivate me with my fitness whilst showering me with Salted Caramel treats. Bit of a contradiction there.
Finally, I was lucky enough to get lots and lots of Jewellery Making supplies. If you don't know I absolutely love making jewellery and last year it grew from an occasional thing to a full-time hobby. I was treated to bead kits, books and a thread zapper which I've had my eye on forever! I'm hoping to start a Jewellery Making blog and youtube soon, starting with the basics and working up, so all these goodies will definitely come in handy.
Clearly I was very very good last year and would like to say a massive thank you for all my lovely gifts. Hopefully all of you were also on the nice list. What was your favourite present?
