My lovely mum knows just how much I've been loving suede this year, so bought me two new things to add to my ever-growing 70s fabric obsession! The cross body bag from Oasis is great for me as I don't really carry a lot on me when going out and about, I also really love the colour of it as it'll go with pretty much everything I own and wear. The jacket is from ASOS and, even though it looks more brown here it's actually a mix between brown and khaki green – mum gave me this as an early gift but I'm still counting it as a Christmas pressie.

So it wouldn't be Christmas if I didn't get some 'out of the norm' childish gifts, and my family and friends know me well enough to know that unicorn's are the best bet! These slippers from ASOS are absolutely amazing, they're out of stock now (boooo) so I'm so glad mum got them early – comfy and soft, they're also a hit with Daisy dog! One of my bestie's Lottie – she has a blog too, check it out here – picked me up this unicorn hottie (maybe because it rhymes with her name?) from Topshop, I've named him Ulysses and this little guy smells of lavender and can be popped in the microwave as and when you need a little bit of heat. And what Christmas isn't complete without a bit of stationery? I love this design from TKMaxx, definitely worth a look in the high street store if you're after some pretty notebooks!

I didn't realise I had asked for so much makeup stuff so when all this was in my stocking it was like a mini surprise – the thing I was most excited about receiving was my new makeup bag from Maggs London. If you're not familiar with the Michalaks on Youtube then get to know them and learn more about this lovely little family (and Hannah's amazing bags). I had asked for this design or a floral one, but was secretly pleased I got this one named 'The Fair One', each bag is named after something in Hannah's life so you're getting a pretty product with a little bit of a story. The three things I am super excited to try out are the W7 palettes and this Benefit tin that sold out so quickly (but there's different versions still available, go go go!) in particular the Hoola bronzer and High Beam highlighter look amazing. The last things (beauty-wise) are now completely sold out annoyingly and it's these Clinique 7 Days of Lipstick which range from nude colours to bright reds – great for every day of the week!

The only perfume I used to wear was Escada and while I still love that brand, they get discontinued to quickly I had to find another love PRONTO! Of course, the floral smells of the Mard Jacobs Daisy perfumes is enough to make any gal fall weak at the knees so my mum and brother bought me two of the scents, Daisy Sorbet which is one of my absolute favourite smells and one that I hadn't tried before – Daisy So Fresh! Mum picked me up a small stocking filler in the form of this adorable manicure set, knowing I'm a vintage fan she thought this would be right up my street.

Yes I'm slightly taking the mick when I say 'the kool kids' obviously as ADIDAS Stan Smith trainers are something I never thought I would actually own, or want to own for that matter. But when I saw them on the model on ASOS I thought they would really suit me and, as a lover of comfy footwear, I'd get a lot of wear out of them, too. It isn't Christmas until you put the new pyjamas on, both my mum and myself got this set from Primark as we instantly fell in love with the design (I also got some with polar bears on them, but was wearing them as I took these photos, tehe). And we're finally at the end… And I got myself a terrarium! Watch this space for a how to guide on moving your cacti into this lovely little home!

Hope you all got whatever you were wishing for from Santa and spent lots of quality time with your friends and family! This isn't a post to brag about what I got, I like writing these sorts of posts and I know nosy people like me enjoy seeing what people got – see you Friday for my New Year's post!
