How are you all doing? Hope you’ve had a great weekend!
Today I’m sharing with you what I got for Christmas. I know, I’m so late to the party, but since I didn’t go home for Christmas this year, I had to wait for the presents to get to me. And it took a while!
Also, I’m only sharing the Beauty / Fashion-related presents, since I feel like these are the ones that really make sense to share here on the blog (figures you won’t be too interested in seeing the hot water bottles I got…). And there’re also a few things I ordered online on Black Friday that I’d ordered to go home, so then I had to wait for those to get here as well. So I thought I’d just share everything on this post.
Just a quick apology: as with the previous post, it’s been raining non-stop so I had to take most of these pictures inside, with bad lighting, not a decent background, and with the selfie camera on my phone, so the quality isn’t the best.
On with what I got!
Intense Moisture Serum, Rituals
Since this is the only product in the’Beauty’ department, and since it’s such an amazing one, I figured it be a great way to start things off. This’ my 3rd bottle and I ask for it every Christmas and birthday. It’s, simply put, the best product I’ve ever applied to my face! Makes such a difference, skin’s clearer, more hydrated, silky, smooth… Just looks healthier and better. It’s not affordable, but if you can splurge, your skin will thank you!
Giant nude scarf, Etam
This one I bought on Sales, but thought I’d include it here anyway. I’d been wanting a nude scarf since I can remember and this one’s the perfect shade, it’s so soft, and it’s huge and warm. Also, it had a 30% discount so I bought it for about €13 / $13,80 / £11,40 – which I find such a bargain for this type of scarf! I’ve been wearing it loads.
Silver 3-star necklace
I’m obsessed with this necklace! It’s so me, so beautiful. It’s starts, it’s silver, and it’s simple. What’s not to love? I don’t leave the house without it!
Flannel Check Shirt, Uniqlo
Again, obsessed! I love this shirt, it’s so me. Check print. Shirt. Blue, gray and burgundy (my favourite colour combo of all time). Fits perfectly. I could live with about three of these in my wardrobe, so I could wear them every single day!
Cosy ‘Christmas’ Jumper, Mango
I don’t feel like it’s a jumper that you could only wear for Christmas, but I can see why some would feel that way. For me, it’s the most beautiful jumper, I love everything about it. The colour, the pattern, the feel, the neck, the fit… Perfect!
(Faux) Leather Jacket, H&M
I’d been wanting a leather-ish jacket for a while and my boyfriend gave me this one, from H&M. I love that it’s simple, with silver details, and the cut’s very flattering. I can’t wait for the weather to be more ‘leather jacket appropriate’!
Black Midi-Skirt, Mango
This’ one of the things I ordered on Black Friday and turns out it’s slightly sparkly. Was not expecting that! However, I do love it – it’s a black midi-skirt after all. This’ actually the outfit I wore on Christmas Eve, and I love it. Can’t wait to start pairing with with more Spring-y looks!
Nude Suede Backpack, Mango
I’m so obsessed with this one! I’d been wanting both a nude bag and a backpack for ages, and I’d been in love with this one ever since the Autumn / Winter collection started hitting the shops, back in August. Finally, I have it, and it’s perfect!
Denim Shirt Dress, Mango
Though it was a gift, I ordered this one on the Black Friday sales. However, I thought it had long sleeves and it’s quite a light fabric, which I wasn’t expecting either. So I’m saving it for Spring, which’s why it’s super wrinkly, since I’ve been keeping it stored. I do love it, and I think it’ll also work really well opened, with a top or tee underneath and paired with some jeans or trousers.
