Christmas Goodies 2016

Goodmorning everyone; I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are now nursing potato and mince pie-filled food babies! I, for one, have had a lovely lazy few days and am now just about back to revision timetables and busy schedules, but for now, here are a few of my wonderful Christmas gifts that I just had to share!

My stocking contained a few little bits that Santa knew I had been wanting for a while, including some interestingly shaped paperclips, handbag tassel charm and Pilot V Pens. My grandparents kindly bought me this cream beanie from H&M that had been on my list as the only bobble hat that I had found that fit my head (which is apparently abnormally small?). My mum also treated me to a couple of Zoeva brushes, one of which is the cult Silk Finish Brush, and the Nuxe Reve de Miel lipbalm.

 It's become a bit of a tradition for my parents to gift me a handbag for Christmas, so this year I received this black leather one from Accessorize which is quite gorgeous. They were also kind enough to gift me the Caudalie Beauty Elixir and some beautiful bobby pins that were similar to some extortionately priced ones in Anthropologie that I had lusted over.

My grandmother also gifted me this amazing Vintage-inspired ring from M&S that is similar to the one she gave me for my birthday that I LOVE, and these super glitzy Primark earrings that I cannot wait to wear for NYE!

Finally: the books. I'd asked for a lot of books this year, and was very excited to unwrap so many of them! First up, the ever-so-amusing 'The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving A F**k' which I cannot wait to read, a Dream Journal as, although it may seem stupid to some, I have been having some obscure dreams recently that I think would be interesting to delve into, and finally in non-fiction, the constantly out-of-stock 'GirlBoss' which I am so so so looking forward to reading, as it has been on wishlists for the past few years!

In terms of the imaginary, 'The Secret History' is another Donna Tartt for me to get my teeth into, as I read 'The Goldfinch' in a matter of days. One of my favourite movies is 'Trainspotting' so I know I am going to obsess over the book, and then 'The Virgin Suicides' is a film I've wanted to watch, but only after I've read the book!

Again, Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope I'll be less of an inconsistent blogger for 2017!
