Late Christmas Wishes ♥

Heyy lovelies,
I know I've been slacking with my blog posts over christmas but I've been so busy over the last few weeks travelling here and there and just being generally festive that I haven't even had time to open my laptop!  I hope you all had a lovely christmas and that you got lots of lovely things off Santa! I had such a lovely time and was truly spoilt by my gorgeous family and friends!

Just before christmas I got to go to Hamburg to meet my boyfriend before he came home for christmas as he was studying at University over there. It was so lovely and the christmas markets were amazing! They sold loads of little goodies and it really got me in the festive mood! I was actually sad to leave even though I knew the festivities would carry on when I got home. One of my favourite little stalls was a chocolate stall which told all kinds of DIY tools. I don't even really like chocolate or do any sort of DIY but the detail was amazing and they were so well made that I was really impressed. Here they are in all their chocolatey glory...


MUST SEE's include: 1)The Christmas Markets (definitely a german speciality) these open late November early December and run right up until the weekend before Christmas, so lots of time to get a visit, but wrap up warm, it gets cold around then. 2) The Esplinade, it's so beautiful and although it was too cold in December to sit outside on the waterfront - I went in September and although quite chilly at times, sitting by the water is so relaxing 3) Alsterhaus - An amazing department store with all some amazing beauty concessions and floors upon floors of designer clothes, the food hall is also amazing with gorgeous deli counters, a cheese bar, a fish bar, and not forgetting the beautiful Veuve Clicquot Champagne bar which is lovely for a mid shopping treat!

I got some lovely presents for christmas and some of my favourites include my new lovely Cath Kidston make up bag and toiletry bag which I adore! I also got a lovely little make up bag to go in my handbag from River Island which is furry and beautiful. Some gorgeous Topshop Nail varnishes in gold and silver shades - they're beaut and apply so smoothly. Gucci Guilty perfume, Mark Hill heated rollers to add volume and curls to my hair, and finally my ultimate favourite -my Swarovski Necklace from my lovely boyfriend. I was treated to lots of other lovely things but I just thought I'd share some of my faves with you all. I'll do more posts soon about my other presents and OOTD'S :) I'm still yet to master the best way to use my rollers but I'm getting there and soon my hair will hopefully look much more 'voluminous' and luscious (I have high hopes!) I'll post my progress...

I'm also lucky enough to be going to New York on thursday to celebrate the BIG 21! And I'm so so excited! I'll definitely be doing a few posts about that with all my photos and little buys over there! And also what I am treated to for my birthday! As I won't be blogging until the New Year now I hope you all have a Happy New Year! :D See you in 2012!


  1. The toiletries bag is so cute! I almost nearly got a cath kidston bed set (which would of cost 60 squid in the sale!) but then the sensible me took over xx

  2. Yess I love all the Cath Kidston stuff, it's so pretty! haha the sensible me would have taken over on something like that too! I bet it was lovely though! :) xo
