What I got for Christmas 2016!

img_4384 img_4386 So these items are a few from my mum that  love. I’ve been going on about the Stella McCartney Pop fragrance and I actually ended up buying it for my mum too. Great mind! The DKNY perfume is one of my all time favourites and so i was very happy to get this. And my mum knows me well as a pretty lipstick and nail polish is very me. img_4396 Next are a few cute presents from my sister in law. I was really spoilt by her as they are all from Ted Baker. The smaller items are firstly a gorgeous deep red lippie and nail polish set. I’m really looking forward to saving these for a special occasion to wear them as it’s a really gorgeous colour and will really add to an outfit. Things that I really love is a fab hand cream and nail file so these ones are perfect. The print is so cute too. Lastly is this fab checkered Ted Baker shopper and I love these bags as they’re so useful especially in the summer so this one will be getting a lot of use. img_4387 My in-laws really spoilt me this year too and I thought that I would just choose a selection of the things. They know that I’m a blogger so when I opened this little E plate my first thought was, ooo this is very instagram-able. The gold is so pretty. I have Thomas Sabo bracelet, and so a little tortoise charm was perfect to remind me of my recent holiday to Mexico. It’s so cute. I also received a little Cath Kidston Lip butter and hand cream set. So pretty! img_4400 My dad and sister bought me a coat from Warehouse that I asked for. I love the mottled blue and black effect that it has and it’s really warm. It also goes really well with the faux fur snood I got from my aunty. I received a little Michael Kors card holder too as I never have enough room for wallets or purses in evening bags so I really needed something cute for them to go in.  I really love this. img_4390   Lastly I received a few amazing gifts from my husband. We actually almost bought each other similar things too which is strange. First up is this candle from Neom. I’ve been after one of these for so long as it smells incredible. I can’t wait to start burning it. Next up is this a fragrance I adore from Jo Malone. Peony and Blush Suede is such a pretty floral fragrance. Every time I go past my local shop I always pop in and smell it. I always use them up so fast though as I love the JM fragrances so much. I’m saving this one a little more though. I’d seen this cute little E key ring in Accessorize recently, I always loose my keys so it was so cool to get this. Perfect! My big present from my husband this year was this super cute black Michael Kors evening bag.  I’ve been to a few events recently and had to borrow a friends black bag to go with my outfit so my husband chose a stunning one for future events. It’s made of saffiano leather which means it’s really durable and doesn’t scratch easily.  It has space for a few cards, a bit of make up and my phone.

January Sale Purchases

img_4403 This year my sale purchases have been great even if I do say so myself. I have been after a new bag for a while but I haven’t found one that was right or that was the perfect price but I was walking by the bag sale in Fenwicks, Colchester and came across this beautiful DKNY Bryant Park Saffiano Shopper  . It was a fab price and it didn’t take much persuading for me to buy it. The bag is a great size and perfect for work. I was also after a perfume, Si by Giorgio Armani that I had seen in Boots, and when the sales came on, it was at a great price, better than all of the other places that had it so nabbed it quickly. It came in a set with a beautiful mascara with I couldn’t wait to try out. img_4382 What have been your bargain sale purchases? Let me know in the comments below. Happy Shopping!

Sunday Evening Instagram Round up!

screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-19-53-15 screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-19-53-46 My first picture is one from our Mexican hotel. It was gorgeous, really hot, lots of palm trees everywhere and many swimming pools. We had so much fun and we’re really missing the warm weather and everything about this holiday. screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-19-53-58 My second picture is a picture of beautiful Tulum in Mexico. It’s a fantastic historic site and the views are pretty breath taking. The beach is just behind where I took this picture and there were lots of lizards around the site. It was really special place to be knowing that is was so historic too.     screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-19-56-31 On Saturday we went to pick up our new car, a Seat Ibiza from Norwich. We met with both of our parents and my mum reminded me that we used to have a little white Seat when I was little and that they’re really good cars.       screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-19-56-43 We had lunch with Michael’s parents at a fab little place called Logan’s Sandwich bar in Norwich.  It had a mixture of vegan, vegetarian specials on the menu. I had an aubergine toastie and it was delicious.       screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-19-56-54 We collected our car and went on to meet my mum and step dad at Fairfield Hungry Horse and had a drink, a catch up and later some dinner. My husband had this fab double veggie burger which he said was yummy.       screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-19-57-11   Today I popped into the new Fenwicks store in Colchester. They have new collection pieces and I spotted these amazing DKNY hand bags. I think I’m a little in love and one of these could be going on my Christmas wish list. What have you been up to this week? Let me know in the comments below or Twitter. I’d love to know. Happy Sunday!
