When I was opening my presents on Christmas Day, I took some photographs of my favourites so that I could share them with you. My absolute favourite gift of all was the package I received from my friend Kate in California.
She had filled a whole box with US holiday goodies, all individually and beautifully wrapped to extend the opening excitement. I got some fabulous seasonal candy from her, along with stationery from my favourite store Target and lots of amazing Sephora makeup and skincare. How gorgeous is that palette?!
I also got some more new colouring books (I'm addicted to these) and some pretty jewellery- my Mum got me a Folli Foillie woven charm bracelet and a school friend got me such a cute bee necklace from Italy.
I did a lot of blogger secret santa swaps this year, and another gift that I loved was this beautiful gold-plated sterling silver with diamonds ring from Gemporia. I got this from the lovely Amber at The Mile Long Bookcase, so thanks Amber!
I also got two lovely books- Tanya Burr's Love, Tanya and one that you fill in yourself- My Future Listography. I've been writing lists of all the things I want to do in 2016 and in the future every day since Christmas. It's a great way to keep track of goals- from places you want to visit to things you want to buy.
I hope you got some gifts that made you happy too!
