I’ve been wondering how to start this post because quite frankly, I’m a tad saddened Christmas is over. However, thinking positively, I have an exciting year ahead. Before the New Year I did want to share what I received for Christmas. I’m EXTREMELY grateful and didn’t expect any of it. 

IMG_4519I’ve really wanted to try some products from La Roche-Posay for a while now so I was very grateful when family had bought me a couple bits. And ever since I’d watched Lydia Millen’s vlog I really wanted to read ‘How to Be An Overnight Success’  by Maria Hatzistefanis. One present I’ve been surprised with is this Champneys Detox Facial Cleansing brush. It leaves my skin feeling 1000x cleaner and super soft.

IMG_4520My Mum asked me to write a list of things I’d want for Christmas. I couldn’t really think of much because I didn’t need anything, so I wrote a couple things I wanted to try. For example the Maybelline Lash Sensational, because I feel I’m the only person who hasn’t tried it. I’ve hit pan on most of the shades in the Sleek Precious metals Highlighting Palette so I appreciated getting another one. I also received this SEVENTEEN Skin Wow Primer, which is so cool because you can mix it with your foundation, use it as a primer or as a highlighter. I used it as a highlighter yesterday and its a lovely subtle glow. My best friend also bought me this HUGE eyeshadow palette, it has the most beautiful shades and I can’t wait to try them.

IMG_4521I was super grateful with the jewellery I got this year. Specifically these absolutely gorgeous earrings my Mum bought me from GUESS. They look as if you’re wearing more than one earring and I just think they’re really different and cool.

So usually on Christmas morning, we’re all in our pyjamas, taking our time to open presents and be appreciative for what we’ve received. This year, my Mum said we all had to get dressed first and when it came to opening presents my parents were quite quick with it. Which had me baffled. Then once I’d thought all the presents were open, my Mum handed me one more and this was my reaction…

IMG_4518To this CAR. I honestly couldn’t feel my legs all day I was so shocked. Fiat 500’s have always been my dream car (especially these coloured ones) but because of the price tag I never thought that I’d ever own one. I was speechless. I still am. I’ve already had a couple drives and will have a few more in the next few days. I’m still getting comfortable with it but it is easy to drive and has the most beautiful interior (and exterior). I’m just so grateful I’ve been at a loss for words since Christmas day.

I’m so grateful for everything I got this year and I’m still in shock. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

  1. That’s so exciting that you got a car! 🙂 it’s great finally getting your own car! I love that it was such a surprise for you! My Christmas this year wasn’t that exciting because I knew all of the presents that I was getting from my parents 😂 I know lots of people who had Fiat 500s for their first cars, i love the colour 🙂
