What I Got For Christmas 2014

First off Happy New Year! Hopefully you've all had a great start to the year. I haven't blogged in over two months but I'm hoping to blog more this year by getting better at balancing uni work and using my free time more wisely (blogging rather than spending half a day in bed watching Netflix). I'm also hoping to figure out how I can take better photos in my uni room as it is dark pretty much all of the time.

I thought I'd share with you what I got for Christmas as I always enjoy reading these posts. The main thing I asked for from my parents was spending money for New York. They also got me quite a few books including the Alice in Wonderland one which has such a pretty cover and a guide to New York for when we go in March. Although I managed to confuse the guide book with atlas of the world and took a picture of that instead (whoops), this is what happens when you have to rush to take photos before the sun goes in.  My mum also kindly got me the Statue of Liberty Pandora charm. The costa cup was from my brother and he actually chose it himself rather than my mum getting him something to give to me so I was pretty impressed and am looking forward to using it when I get back to uni. My nan got me the Champney's manicure set as she knows how much I like to paint my nails.


The straighteners, perfume and Naked palette are all presents I chose myself with the money my nan gave me. These are actually the first pair of straighteners I've ever owned as I never used to bother much with my hair but after using my friends straighteners I decided it was time to invest in some of my own. I quite like using them to make my hair wavy although I haven't quite perfected my waves yet. The owl hooks were from my parents because I love owls and because at the moment I have no hooks in my uni room which means my coats end up either on my bed or in a heap on my chair.


One of my favourite presents is the little dog, my mums work colleague actually made it! It's made from felt and is super cute!


So that's an overall of what I got for Christmas. I wasn't in quite so much of a Christmassy mood this year, I feel as I've gotten older I've begun to feel less excited about the whole build up to Christmas (uni exams and revision don't help much either). But on the day I actually rather enjoyed myself, it was nice to eat as much food as I wanted, spend time with my family and forget for a while about all the revision I had to do.

What was your favourite gift that you received? If you've done a what I got for Christmas post then feel free to leave a link to it in the comments as I'd love to have a nosey.
