What I Got For Christmas 2018 ♡

Hello my frosted fairies! I’m wishing you all a Happy New Year filled with magic and enchantment.

IMG_2145

Sadly the festive season has come to an end and I have put away my Nutcracker themed tree. Nevertheless, I have had so much fun rearranging my room for 2019 with the items I received from Santa. Does anyone else love to display their gifts and gaze at them in admiration for a few days after Christmas?

As you may have seen in my girly Christmas gift-guide, I made a collage of the items I was dreaming of receiving and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I unwrapped so many delightful treasures on Christmas morning.

IMG_2386

I love taking a peak at what others have received and when I asked on Twitter and Instagram if anyone was interested in seeing my gifts, the response was overwhelmingly positive! Therefore, I thought I would share everything with you.

I feel very blessed and appreciate all the little gems I have been gifted with this year.

P.S I must warn you that there is an overwhelming abundance of pink…

Ted Baker|Small Bow Detail Suitcase

IMG_2109

I remember watching freddymylove’s ‘What I got for Christmas’ video last year and I have been lusting after her pink bow suitcase from Ted Baker ever since. Opening the case on Christmas Day was a wondrous moment.

IMG_2120

I have fallen in love with the rose gold bows and zips as they add a sweet, feminine touch.

IMG_2121

I’m planning on taking the suitcase to London in the spring as my mum said she would book tickets to see the Royal Ballet’s performance of Romeo and Juliet.

Ted Baker|Rammira’ Ruffle Backpack in Pink

IMG_2142

Pink handbags are my weakness and this Ted Baker backpack is an utter dream.

IMG_2139

The rose shade is divine and the delicate frills add a unique touch. Ted Baker declares it “a bag with of talents” and I definitely agree with this.

IMG_2157

Designed as a multi-purpose bag, you can wear it cross-body, on the shoulder or as a backpack, you need only adjust the straps. It is made from top grain leather and the rose-gold accents are certain to make any girly girl happy.

IMG_2455

I can imagine wearing this throughout spring and summer as it’s so lightweight and fits all my essentials. The inside of the bag showcases an array of stunning bows; making every inch a piece of perfection.

PUMASuede Bow Detail Trainers in Pink

IMG_2152

Who doesn’t love shoes adorned with bows?

IMG_2161

I have a slight infatuation with bows and I couldn’t be without this pair of trainers from PUMA. I adore the soft nude shade and the pink satin laces are so elegant.

IMG_2160

 Intricate details are woven throughout the design; I particularly love the subtle touches of silver and the satin bows at the back which transform the trainers into Disney princess shoes!

IMG_2158

Too Faced|’Under the Christmas Tree’ Palette

IMG_2220

I can’t believe I finally own this pretty palette from Too Faced. Their 2018 Christmas collection has to be my favourite.

IMG_2252

The palette is encased in a fairytale theatre style box which is decorated with tiny gold stars. The illustrations of snow bunnies, sweet squirrels and elegant swans, are all presented in mint green, pastel pink and lavendar shades.

IMG_2254

The palette itself is shaped like a Christmas tree and wrapped in soft pink velvet packaging.

IMG_2256

It can be divided into three compacts and each shade has been bestowed with a whimsical name; some of my favourites are… ‘Angel Kisses’, ‘Vanilla Snow’ and ‘Winter Wonderland.’ I don’t want to go into too much detail as I’m going to be writing an in-depth review on the palette very soon!

Too Faced|Pink Swan Christmas Dreams Brush Set

IMG_2202

This set of brushes are all my Christmas wishes come true. Cascading across the packaging is the sweetest illustration of a charming puppy and a dashing squirrel, surrounded by a set of gifts embellished with bows.

IMG_2227

If the winter wonderland packaging wasn’t enough, the candy pink makeup pouch and brushes that come inside are just as wonderful! The phrase ‘I Dream In Makeup’ has been embossed onto the vanity case in gold calligraphy and the golden heart zip adds a cute touch.

IMG_2243

The makeup brushes are set with pale pink bristles which are as soft as a bunny and look like cotton candy. The handles of each brush are scattered with twinkling stars which transform them into fairy wands; ready to cast their makeup magic!

Kikki K|Large Leather Personal Planner in Pink

IMG_2286

I can’t wait to start filling out my new personal planner from Kikki K. Covered in a soft baby pink with gold detailing, this planner is so chic and classic. It has an 18-month perpetual calendar and is easily customisable to fit your style.

IMG_2292

Inside you will find a pink leather zip wallet, card slots, a miniature sticky note pad, a pink notepad and sections for notes, to do lists, subject pages etc.

IMG_2291

IMG_2294

Alongside this, it has refillable pages so instead of purchasing a new planner at the end of each year you can buy more insert sheets.

Disney|Marie Mug & Spoon

IMG_2150

My new Disney Marie mug is as sweet as can be. Coated in a pink quilted design and featuring Marie in her pink bow and sassiest pose, I’m certain that this mug was made for me.

IMG_2164

The miniature ceramic spoon that comes with the mug is perfect for adding that final sprinkle of sugar to your tea or scooping up the last few marshmallows in a hot chocolate!

IMG_2172

Mad Beauty|Marie Bows & Whiskers Body Cream

IMG_2318

After falling in love with the bath milk from the ‘Marie Bows and Whiskers’ bath range, I was so grateful to receive the matching body cream.

IMG_2310

The packaging features Marie perched in the centre in her most ladylike stance and the body creams fragrant notes of cherry blossom and peony remind me so much of spring.

Ava & I|Travel Jewellery Case

IMG_2177

My miniature jewellery case from Ava & I is the ideal place to store my dainty jewellery pieces.

IMG_2180

The case combines feminine prettiness with elegance and class; it has a marshmallow pink colour, a golden motif adorning its lid and inside there is a soft velvet lining.

IMG_2190

I think it’s going to look beautiful alongside my Ted Baker suitcase when I take them on trips.

Primark|Belle ‘Red Roses’ Diffuser

IMG_2301

IMG_2305

This Beauty and the Beast diffuser is so pretty. It has the classic ‘Red Roses’ scent which is likely to be inspired by the enchanted rose featured in the Disney classic.

IMG_2303

The packaging is a romantic dream with illustrations of Mrs Potts & Chip, grand castles and roses!

IMG_2304

IMG_2309

Disney|Aurora Eye Mask and Bed Socks Set

 

IMG_2447

I’m going to feel like a Disney princess with this Sleeping Beauty eye mask and bed socks set. The eye mask is made out of a light pink satin material and feels like a fluffy cloud on my skin. The knitted bed socks look very cosy and the golden thread adds a lovely detail. I can’t wait to go to sleep like fairytale royalty.

Asda|Swan Pom-Pom Beanie

IMG_2345

I have recently fallen in love with swans as they always look effortlessly elegant with their white fluffy feathers.

IMG_2347

After receiving this swan beanie for Christmas, I can’t wait to wear it on a frosty January afternoon. The pink fleece material is so snuggly and the sparkly princess crown and fluttering eyelash detailing add a charming femininity.

The White Company|Pale Pink Cashmere Bed Socks

IMG_2383

The White Company’s pink cashmere bed socks are my favourite and I was so delighted to receive a new pair this Christmas. The light cashmere blend feels like pure clouds of candy floss and leave you feeling as toasty as a cinnamon bun. They also come in a light blue and white but I adore this pale almost, snowy white pink.

Willow and Paige|Oversized Scarf with Frills

IMG_2332

My heart sings when I spot anything frilly and pink so this knitted scarf from Willow and Paige is all my winter dreams tied together with a ribbon. The pink sorbet shade and soft-touch knitted texture make it a dreamy piece to have in your winter wardrobe.

Laura Ashley|Pom-Pom Knitted Blanket in ‘Blush’

IMG_2342

This pom-pom detail throw from Laura Ashley has to be one of my most coveted gifts this Christmas. The mink-style, fluffy texture keeps me warm, the blush pink shade matches my bedding and the white pom-poms add the cutest detail!

Jelly Cat|Bashful Snow Bunny in ‘Blush’

IMG_2363

Jellycat bunnies are one of my favourite things and I was so happy to receive their special edition ‘Snow Bunny’ from my brother this Christmas!

IMG_2388

 Described as “shy and sweet”, the bashful snow bunny will keep you warm and toasty away from any frightful winter storm. “Snuggled in a creamy fluffy ribbon capelet, our bun is ready for a sleigh ride!”

Victoria’s Secret|Velvet Bow Slippers in ‘Pink About It’

IMG_2390

This pair of slippers from Victoria’s Secret are the comfiest slippers I own! They have a plush, fuzzy texture and a dainty bow detail which matches my pyjamas perfectly.

LUSH|’Magic Wand’ bubble bar, ‘Luxury Lush Pud’ bath bomb & ‘Snow Fairy’ jelly bomb

IMG_2403

The ‘Magic Wand’ reusable bubble bar is my favourite product from LUSH’s Christmas range; it’s dusted with silver glitter, tied with a ribbon and a shiny bell, it smells like marshmallows and fills the bath tub with candy scented bubbles.

IMG_2407

The Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb combines the sweetest festive scents. I love this product because the fusion of colours creates a magical rainbow effect in the water (with lots of shimmer of course.)

IMG_2411

Snow Fairy is one of my most-loved winter scents and I’m so happy that LUSH have created a bath bomb to go alongside their popular shower gel. The jelly bomb makes the prettiest pink princess bubble bath and leaves you smelling like a sweet shop.

I hope you’re having a lovely 2019 so far! I’d love to know you received for Christmas and what your resolutions for the New Year are 🌸🍾🎀✨

Lots of love

Sophie

xoxo
