Christmas gifts: A Little Snippet from 2018

January 6, 2019 in Lifestyle - 7 Comments - 3 min read

Christmas has been and gone!

Can you believe it? I loved every second of it. I think my favourite part of the holidays this past year was just hanging around with my family and sharing Christmas gifts.

We were a small party of three this year and honestly it was the most chilled Christmas ever. Literally just what I needed for a festive holiday (massive break from the reality of work and social media).

So, since the holidays I’ve seen a few posts showing off lovely christmas experiences and gifts. So I thought it would be fun to share a couple of gifts that I recently received, and also share how they are going to help me have a better, more fulfilling 2019.

As always I’m so grateful for any Christmas gifts I receive, The idea that someone took time to wrap and exchange a gift, warms my icy heart a little bit.

Kapton & Son

Is this not the most beautiful backpack you’ve ever seen? So, last year I struggled to find a suitable bag for work, that would fit my lunch in, be easy to carry and work for my commute.

Kapton & Son

So I thought? Why not a fancy backpack? And, hello – this backpack is super lush and gorgeous. Kapton & Son is a truly gorgeous brand. I’ve been test running it on my way to and from work this January. And its perfect.

I fit my lunch in and a book without having the struggle of a handbag and a really sore arm (for some reason I need to pack my whole world to go to work).

Facemasks galore

So, if you’ve read my News Years post – you know a little self care time is at the top of my list. Facemasks are often the the perfect 10 minute time out for me. So to receive literal stash (which will hopefully take me through to early March, makes me feel super happy!)

2019 skincare

We have a really busy event period at my work – usually from February to March where I’m away here and there for exhibitions. While its fun and exciting, standing on your feet all day at an often air con blasted conference room can be really awful for my skin. So I always like to pack a facemask for the away stay so I’ve got a little pamper time lined up in the evenings.

While I love my facemasks, I’m also looking for some perfect handmasks and footmasks. So if you have any you can recommend, I’d love to hear it!

Disney Calendar

Now, this is just a super cute gift – and one I love because I’ll using it every day of 2019. For as long as i can remember, i’ve always been gifted a cute page a day calendar.

They’ve ranged from, learning a new word a day to crazy cat of the day. I just think these are the cutest gifts to get. SO this year, when my beautiful Mother gifted me a disney picture one, I was so happy!

Everyday I get to view a new beautiful shot of Disney and if that doesn’t put you in a mood every morning with your cuppa – what will?Mambi Stickers

Creative Planning Stickers

I’m all about creative planning and very invested in getting assests to help me. So getting these cute mamba stickers set my little creative brain off!

creative planning stickers

I’m trying to plan two weeks ahead in 2019 – just so I know what my immediate plans and weeks are. So having inspirational stickers and planning functions really help break up my week. Plus its literally just adorable!

I’m a planner girl through and through, so you can best believe I’m gonna make it cute. It’s also so much easier to stick to schedule as its more visual and easy to remember.

And just like that, Christmas is over!

I really enjoyed gift giving this season. I’ve usually dreaded it but I’ve already deducted a notebook to potential Christmas gifts for 2019. And, of course I have a few ideas for myself.

What was the best gift you received during the festive holidays for you?

    Some lovely gifts! I absolutely love that backpack, I would love everything you have shared with us! I kind of want to be more organised, so the planning stickers would be fab and they’re so cute! My favourite gift was probably my self-care journal because I love filling it in and it’s so pretty looking too <3

    • 💫 Thank goodness for Sundays! It’s been a long week and I cannot wait to just chill & watch 🎬 movies today. I thought I would give little update on how I’m getting on with the ⭐️NEW #BioluminCeye serum #gifted from @DermalogicaUK. It’s really nice to just brush over your 🧖🏼‍♀️ eyes in the morning & really perks me up (I literally reach for all my morning skincare as soon as I 😴 wake up). My under eye area feels a lot brighter & softer after use from these past couple of weeks. Pretty sure, I’m gonna have to 🛍 restock this one soon! 💖#skinfluencer
    • ✨ if only my week was as magical as these cute little tea lights. This week has literally been sponsored by lemon tea ☕️ & throat sweets 🍬 I’ve been off sick that last couple of days and I can tell you it is not ideal. ❄️ Isn’t the weather so bitterly cold in Cambridge recently? Not great when you’re under the weather with a cold! 🥶💖
    • 💫 And just like that, we’ve got through Monday.👊🏼 I had throughly enjoyed my weekend of just taking things slowly and chilling, I definitely need to have more weekends like this.✨ Since moving, I honestly love just hanging out in our living room because the space is sooo bright (can’t wait for longer ☀️days) and also I just feel so cosy here. 😻 Fee has her little spot at the end, right next to the radiator for the colder days too. I think I just need to get a few more pictures 📸 on the wall (currently being very fussy), maybe some more 🛋 cushions & definitely some more house plants. 🌿 Any home decor reccomendations? 💫
    • 🌟 Sunday’s are for doing the things you love.✨ That’s why my day will consist of 👩🏼‍💻blogging, ☕️ drinking massive amounts tea, 📸 scrapbooking and 📺 binging a little bit of Netflix. What does your Sunday look like? 💖
    • 💫I’m so glad we are hitting Friday tomorrow! Is it just me or has this week lasted for like, a year? I have a new blog post 👩🏼‍💻up though all about one of my new favourite coffee ☕️ spots in Cambridge. ✨ PLEASE go check this place out and treat yo’self if you’re local. The food is just divine. 💖
    • C’est fini! 🎉Really pleased to have finished my third book 📚 of the year & the 1st book of @bethsbookclub_ for 2020. Can I just say, this is SUCH a heartwarming💖 but also heartbreaking story! I didn’t want to love Ove as much as I did but I just couldn’t help it, really looking forward to chatting 👩🏼‍💻to everyone about this book later in the month. Now I need new book 📖 recommendations, what’s on your current reading list? 💫 #2020reads
