What I Got For Christmas

I've seen a few of the "What I Got For Christmas" posts around and thought I would show you a few of the bits I got. I want to mention that this is not bragging at all, I know I am very lucky but don't want it to come across as showing off!

I had run out of my favourite Origins Mega Mushroom Cleanser so was really pleased to receive a new one, I'm also nearing the end of my Body Shop Shea Body Butter which I absolutely love and was also given a set of Soap and Glory Body Butters too! I also received a really pretty nail polish from Model's Own, I've never tried their nail polishes before but I am absolutely in love with this shade, Pink Fever! I had my eye on this heart ring from Pandora and I am absolutely in love with it, it's so beautiful! My grandparents bought me a bracelet and a pair of earrings, these are hand made from a family friend and they are so simple but I love them both! I have been after a new lens for my camera for a while and got the Sigma 70-300mm lens, this is amazing for taking photos of objects from really far away, I also got a subscription to a photography magazine! 

When people were asking me what I wanted for christmas I couldn't really think of anything, I think you get to an age where you don't really need anything. For me, I have a job and can buy a lot of things myself, I also feel bad when people buy me things! I had mentioned that I wanted an Oxfam Goat! You can buy lots of different things and they are given to communities in less developed countries, I've done this before and it's such a lovely idea, so I did get my goat! My friend bought me some lovely socks from Hobbs, I love the design! In my stocking I got some Rocky Road Hot Chocolate, two of my favourite things! I got some cute knitted socks with fur and my mum's boss bought me the black fingerless gloves, she bought me them so that when I'm out filming and it's cold I can wear them but it's still easy to use the camera, I thought it was a really thoughtful gift! My sister and brother-in-law bought me these pug slippers from River Island which I love! Finally I wanted a pajama set and got this beautiful set from Topshop, when I wear them I feel one step closer to being Jess from New Girl ;)
