Some of my favourite Christmas gifts

Now that Christmas is over and most people are back in work, no longer is it ok to take a mid afternoon nap or eat chocolate almost continually. Twinkling fairy lights are no longer on the outside of houses, everything is dark, wet, and if you live where I do - a bit windy. 

To remedy the cold, dark days I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite Christmas gifts given to me by my parents Father Christmas. I consider myself incredibly lucky as I loved each and every one of the gifts I received, it was a very good Christmas.

This Eve Victoria candle smells wonderful, so clean and fresh. I've decided to burn it tonight for the first time, the room now smells lovely. I really like that Eve Victoria are a Welsh company, it feels good to support a company just up the road from me.

I was so excited to unwrap this on Christmas morning. I've been wanting to try this for quite a while, it's now kept next to my bed for me to use every night.

These earrings were actually given to me by my aunt, they belonged to her but she wanted me to have them. I've never owned a pair of diamond earrings before, I wore them with pride on Christmas day.

I've had quite the wishlist from ELF for a while, since Christmas I've been using these eye shadows (which is a bit of a treat for me as I don't tend to wear it everyday normally) and so far I've had a good experience with them.

Gorgeous pajama bottoms from Monsoon, I also had a pair from Joules. It's lovely to wear pretty things to bed.

This last gift is from my brother and his girlfriend, it's potentially my absolute favourite. I was shocked when my mum showed it to me (it was a joint gift between us), I've always wanted to go to the spa at the Celtic Manor. I'm going to be beyond excited when we go!

I hope everyone else had a good Christmas, here's to a happy 2014.
