What I Received For Christmas 2012

My presents from Father Christmas!

I hope that everyone who celebrates Christmas had a lovely time, stuffed themselves sufficiently with enough food to last a life time and spent a good amount of quality time with friends and family. I was lucky enough to have 3 Christmases this year, the first at my Boyfriend's house where his Mum cooked dinner and we drank lots of nice wine. The second was actual Christmas Day with my Mum and my brother. We woke up around 8am to see that Father Christmas had been (yes, even at 21 and 19 years old he still visits!). We opened 'his' presents and then went to get dressed. Back down and hour or so later (I wore a green peplum top with a black skirt and red festive nails) and we continued around the tree to open presents from each other and money envelopes from relatives. My third Christmas was saved for when my boyfriend came to visit me and we exchanged gifts and ate another Christmas dinner...yum yum yum!

My 'haul': Books galore, Soap & Glory galore, Pandora bracelet, KUWTK boxsets, Money, Radley Kindle Case, MAC makeup, Benefit products, Bits from Accessorize etc
Safe to say I was thoroughly spoilt again :-) But what kind of material girl would hate Christmas, eh? I love spending time with my family, but I equally love receiving and giving presents! Last year my brother and I went halves on an iPad for our Mum, I don't think we managed to top that this year but she was grateful for her many presents none the less. My brother and I always write a little wish list, mine included some Real Techniques brushes, Keeping Up With The Kardashian's box sets and a Radley Kindle case to name but a few things. I was super excited to peel off the wrapping paper and reveal all that I received.
The messy aftermath of gift unwrapping!
Now that Christmas is over there's still plenty more to look forward to! My boy and I are off for Tapas on NYE, I have to first choose between 3 dresses (help!), my birthday's coming up in March, it'll be our 3 year anniversary then too and I'll be looking forward to graduating from Durham and settling down in a cosy house with a gorgeous bunny.

Until then, I will fondly look back over the few snaps I took of Christmas 2012, and remember the special people who couldn't be there to share it with us (Daddy, I'm sending you a festive hug!).
