This year I have much to be grateful for. I was lucky to be surrounded by supportive and brilliant friends, to have my family make it through another tempestuous year and to be with my boyfriend often. Although this post shows mostly my material Christmas gifts (as corny as it sounds) I am so very fortunate in that my life is a good one filled with honest and loving people. 

I hope that all of you have been as fortunate. Here are some of my gifts:

Doctor Cat is a cartoon strip featuring a cat doctor (clearly haha), I love the illustration style. This was a wonderful little t-shirt from my boyfriend.

This Terramundi (sp?) appeals to my creative side and will help me save for a possible holiday with my gentleman. Bought by him as I love these money pots.

These bracelets/chains came from Zara, I love the mix of spikes with glamorous gold. Bought with some christmas money from my grandparents. They'll compliment the watch I got on holiday this year.

I've been considering, quite tediously, getting an iPad for a while. I didn't want to spend if I wasn't sure about the investment but I find myself opening up my laptop just for small bits and bobs all the time and as I want to start running to Uni I needed something smaller to store for when I go and to use for research. This purchase is definitely something I feel is a solid investment and I'm very grateful to my mum for supporting it.

Lastly, my hair dryer and straighteners have been on their way out for a good year now and so they made priority on my christmas wish list. So here are my new appliances, it's shocking how much better it is to have a hair dryer that doesn't take an hour to dry your hair! The Remington wand set was a purchase from a voucher, I look forward to experimenting with it.


  1. Looks like you got some lovely things. A decent hairdryer always helps but you know me I am a fan of decent hair tools.

    Glad you had a lovely time x

  2. That cat tee and the Zara bracelets <3 I love my iPad, its definitely a good investment.
