Wanted to start this post with an announcement – I’m up for a UK Blog Award this year, and I would love it if you voted for me. You can vote by clicking the ‘Vote Now’ tab in the sidebar of my blog or by clicking here, I really appreciate it. Anyway, on with the post.
Christmas 2015 was an awesome one for me. Even though it didn’t quite go to plan, my family and I still had a wonderful time. I got lots of lovely presents, some of which were complete surprises – I’ve listed and photographed them below. I’ve also added what I purchased in the January sales too, so you can take a read and see my bargains.
New Look Dressing Gown
This was another surprise, but it was a really good and thoughtful one. I love music (obviously, or this blog wouldn’t exist) and contemplated getting a pair of speakers at one point, as I’m always wearing my headphones and my ears start hurting a lot if I wear them too much. So my mum and dad got me a speaker box from MINI and it’s actually really clever and cool – you turn on the speaker, play your music, rest your phone on top of the speaker box and it detects the music so it starts playing. It’s so cool in fact that I’m using it as I write this post, and will be using it a lot more in the future to listen to music without using headphones all the time and annoy my neighbours 🙂
Yet another surprise that I wasn’t expecting. I dropped my 5S about 3 weeks before Christmas and cracked the screen on it. I could still use it, but it was just so annoying having to try and see what I was reading when some words were screwed up by the cracks. I was so happy to find that I now had a 6S, and am still happy now.
January Sales Bargains
I got a Monsoon gift card for Christmas and I found the most perfect slippers, and they were half price – a good find. They’re so comfy and the perfect accompaniment to my dressing gown that I showed you earlier.
Crockpot Slow Cooker
I’ve been trying to get a bit more into cooking (and failing as of late), so I bought a slow cooker at Tesco. I got some recipes from my mum’s cookbook at home and am going to use it one day soon, which is also when I’m going to finally get it out the box.
So those are some of the lovely things I both bought and have received for Christmas. I hope you all got lovely things too.
