What I Got For Christmas 2018


Hope you had a lovely Christmas!

I thought I’d follow the crowd and show you guys what I got for Christmas!

Also…I just want to thank you all for getting me to 100 followers! I can’t believe it! I only started in April and we’ve come a long way!



I got two lots of my fave perfume, Gucci Bamboo, which I have been without for about two years! Josh and Grandma & Grandad both bought me it, I think I have enough to last me for the next year and a bit so that’s brill!



Josh also gave me a KeepCup for taking to university. It’s basically a tiny travel cup, that is double walled and looks really funky. Plus it will be cheaper in the long run as uni give discounts on hot drinks if you have a reusable cup!



I also received an array of DVDs, including Mamma Mia 2, The Greatest Showman, The Incredibles 2 and Antman 1 & 2.

Josh bought me The Incredibles 2 which I think is cute as we went to the cinema to see it together and we loved it, ha!



I think like any 00’s child, I always collected the Now That’s What I Call Music CDs. Hence why I asked for the 100th edition!

The first CD has current chart hits and the second has hits from various decades from all the Now CDs to date!



I got a Benefit cracker from my parents. It was filled with loads of mini goodies!


The set comes with miniature versions of Roller Lash, High Beam (which I use DAILY), Benetint and They’re Real Double the Lip.

And if that wasn’t enough, the set also comes with a free makeup consultation at one of their counters.



Other things I was given were this ticket holder for my bus pass to uni and this really cool pizza cutter, I LOVE IT.


These lunch boxes will be good for uni too as it will make sure I’m not overeating! It’s easily done I know!


Josh’s family bought me this Jack Wills manicure gift set which I adore!


It comes with four nail colours, a nail file and a cute little bag to pop them in!


My parents and I discovered these brownies in a mug sets a few years ago and have become obsessed ever since! They are perfect for those duvet and movie days!


I also asked for this Cath Kidston letter pouch as it was cute to pop in my uni bag for all the essentials and 20-something girl needs on the daily!




FINALLY! I loved this present from my parents.

 A lap tray for balancing my MacBook, pens and headphones on while I’m writing blogs!

Mam said she was getting a bit worried that I might drop my MacBook if I kept using my knees as a desk, ha!

It’s perfect!


The Darbys had a fabulous Christmas, I’m glad Josh was able to spend it with us too!

You know you’ve made a good impression on our family when it feels like you’ve known a person for years…especially when they bombard you with Christmas presents!

Josh said he was a bit overwhelmed!

I hope you had a lovely Chrimbo and were well and truly spoilt!


See you on Monday!

Lots of love,
