What I Got For Christmas 2016

Love, Catherine | What I Got For Christmas 2016

I know there's a little bit of controversy labeling the What I Got For Christmas blog post as braggy, but I've learnt whatever you may write, there will always be some form of judgement. I personally love reading these kind of posts, and I honestly don't see the difference between them and a normal haul, so I'm not sure why a few people get their panties in a twist about the whole thaang. Isn't it just really lovely seeing what special gifts everyone has been treated to by their friends and family?! You won't see any bragging here, just pure love and excitement about the things I was gifted and I hope you'll love seeing them too.

What I Got For Christmas 2016 | Charlotte Tilbury Treats
Charlotte Tilbury Treats

One of my favourite makeup brands is the luxurious Charlotte Tilbury range as the rose gold, vintage style packaging is just beautiful and the products themselves are amazing quality. I was treated to the adorable  Mini Lipstick Charms which look so so cute, and the  Full Fat Lashes Masacara which I've heard lots of great things about! I also got another  Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder which has become my all-time favourite, it so finely milled, keeps my makeup in place and most importantly doesn't cake up on your face! It's honestly perfection. 


What I Got For Christmas 2016 | Olivia Burton Bow Necklace

Since Olivia Burton released a gorgeous jewellery line, in addition to their beautiful watches, I basically haven't shut up about it. Every piece is so girly and pretty and totally me! But the item I had my eye on was this dainty little necklace which has a lovely little rose gold bow and a scalloped silver coin with Olivia Burton stamped around it.

What I Got For Christmas 2016 | Champneys Summer Dream Bath & Body Range

This range of pink bath and body products from Champneys looks fit for a Princess and I was treated to the  Rewarding Bubble Heaven,  Butter Souffle, and the  Shower Gel from the range. I've already tried their Shower Mousse which is lovely, and the Summer Dream scent smells like strawberries and champagne!

What I Got For Christmas 2016 | Kate Spade Rose Gold Glitter Keds
Kate Spade |  Rose Gold Glitter Keds

My boyfriend surprised me with these beautiful glitter Keds from Kate Spade, which I've wanted forever but never thought I'd ever end up owning. He's too sweet, he knows I love everything Kate Spade and the rose gold colour of these sneakers are too pretty! They come with a pair of pink ribbon laces and a cotton pair too, but you all know I'll be keeping those pretty ribbons laced in..


What I Got For Christmas 2016 | Diptyque Rose Candle
Diptyque |   Roses Candle

The gift that gave it all away that my boyfriend, who I never thought read my blog, had in fact been a sneaky little blog reader!! My face must've been a picture opening this one as I was so shocked he even knew about the Dipytque brand, let alone the Roses scent I'd been lusting after. Boyfriend points x1000. The candle smells utterly beautiful and is one of those that you can smell the fragrance even before you've unboxed it. It smells quite similar to Jo Malone Red Roses if you've ever tried it!


What I Got For Christmas 2016 | Vintage Tea Set
Marks & Spencer |  Vintage Porcelain Tea Set

My Mum treated me to the prettiest porcelain dinnerware from Marks & Spencer which just has my name written all over it. She bought me the  Cup & Saucer Set which are so lovely and delicate and come with four different pastel colours. I love the ridged pattern and gold rims which look so elegant. She also picked out the  Porcelain Cake Slice for me as we all know how much I love to bake (and eat) cake!
I was so so happy that my Mum also found the set of Vintage Cake Plates for me as I fell in love with them when I first spotted them in store, and they'd since been out of stock, so and I didn't think I'd ever own them! What a babe. There are four of them in the set which come in same pretty pastel shades as the tea cups, and have cute phrases written on them in gold script. I also treated myself to these  Cake Forks to match as I couldn't resist!


What I Got For Christmas 2016 | Ted Baker Pale Pink Otillia Bag

My boyfriend bought me the dream bag!! I'd been totally heart-eyed over this Ted Baker Otillia bag since I'd seen it, and I was so excited when I opened it on Christmas day. It's a gorgeous pale pink shade with little rose gold details, and even has the cutest little bunny print on the inside! He also bought me the little pink Ted Baker Christmas Cracker (in the first photo), even though he didn't have a clue what was inside haha. It actually contains a sweet little pair of socks! 

As always I'm so so grateful for the lovely things I was gifted! If you've written a similar post I'd love you to link me to it so I can have a little nosey!

xoxo
