Last year, for the first time, I decided to do the quite popular post doing the rounds titled 'What I Got For Christmas'. I decided to make another post this year because I love seeing what treats and surprises people are given and to be honest, it serves as a wish-list for me! One of my favourite gifts this year was the Miu Miu fragrance. I've had this on my wish-list for the longest time now and it's such a unique perfume in my collection. It's perfect for this time of year as it's a lovely soft, sensual floral fragrance with a hint of depth to it. It is made up of real jasmine and rose absolute that is set against a deep earth-toned background of Akigalawood to make it beautifully musky and woody at the same time.
As some of you may know from my summer series on the French Riviera I made a visit to the beautiful Grasse in France where the Fragonard Perfume museum is located. The shop was truly the perfume and beauty version of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and so my Mum very kindly picked up some surprises from me that I adore! I cannot wait to use everything and the packaging is simply beautiful.
In amongst everything else I got gorgeous little bits and bobs from friends and other family. From the photos above everything is probably self explanatory (except for the copious amounts of amazing dark chocolate I received- you all know me so well sweet friends!) but one gift I specifically want to highlight is the phone/glasses case from Ten and Six Crafts. This is a local company from the and I'm truly so in love with their beautiful makes.
I was gifted three gorgeous dresses this year that I adore. The first is a London adorned printed dress from Cath Kidston, the second a Oasis Bird printed design, and finally a stunning Autumnal esque Topshop dress.
I'm so incredibly thankful for everything I received this year and also for the Christmas memories made with friends and family. I hope you like this post, and don't forget to tell me what your favourites gift were this year: both to give and receive.
