The ‘What I Got For Christmas’ thing isn’t for everyone, but personally, I love having a peek at the presents folk received. Although it’s mostly that I’m a nosey Nancy, I do like to get some more ideas for heading for a spend in the sales (I really shouldn’t be buying, but it’s unavoidable in the sales). I’ve just uploaded a video sharing some of the lovely presents I’ve had over the holidays, as well as some other bits I bought around the time. There are a few extras below, mostly because I’m crap at filming & a lot of it didn’t make the cut in the editing process – forever finding YouTube a struggle!
Clothing wise my mum always likes to get me something to wear on Christmas day, which I love… It’s nice to have something new to get dressed up in! This year she went for this knit dress she knew I’d been after – it’s super oversized and comfy, just the sort of thing I like. I wore it with my new Topshop Master Boots, my ‘main’ present. I think I’ve worn them every day since Christmas… They’re the perfect height for lengthening my legs without causing me to topple over!
I say home… At the minute I still live with my ma & pa, so these are cute bits to add to my bedroom until I get my own place. Little bits & bobs like these I love, plus they always look nice as extras in blog pictures!

This Christmas has been a extra guuuurd one for beauty. I’ve had some lovely extra treats from work in the form of Space NK parcels, while my mum picked me up the makeup palettes & my brother & a pal went for Lush goodies. My morning routine just got a way more exciting! I love that after the festivities you often have new things to try. I’ll be updating how I get on with them on Snapchat (username – fashioninflux).

You can catch up on some more Christmas presents/bits I’ve bought in the video below. It’s quite a chatty one, mostly because I feel like I need to say plenty if any of my friends & family watch and just think I’m whizzing over their presents ha! As ever, I’m incredibly thankful to have some amazingly generous & thoughtful people in my life.
