For me Christmas is always a weird time of the year. I love it and hate it at the same time. I adore having time to spend with my family, as we don't normally have much time to get together. I can relax and hang around in my pyjamas all day and not do anything. On the other hand, the run up to Christmas drives me nuts - last minute shopping in crowded shopping centres, crazy errands and personal work on top of that. I still get disappointed every year that Christmas is just one single day - it's over before you notice! 

I was lucky enough to get quite a peaceful Christmas this year and to spend it with my closest family. I finished my shopping surprisingly early which is very unusual for me. Anyway, all I wanted to show you is some things that I got from my family. Since I'm saving up to get a new Mac, I got very little apart from money - but I find that it's the little things that make me happy! Where's the excitement in opening a boring envelope?! 

Cosy slippers, YSL-esquee ring, Zara jumper, Coco Mademoiselle Perfume, and Coco Mademoiselle Shower Gel (don't think i have the heart to use it... it looks so pretty!)

Topshop "Arrow" boots
I promise you this is not animal cruelty, haha. Me and my brother got a tortoise each - this is my one featuring my ever so curious dog Lucy. 

Did everyone else have a good Christimas? To be honest I think I was a pretty lucky girl this Christmas!
