What I Got For Christmas 2016

I don't know about you, but What I Got For Christmas posts are my absolute favourite to read! Everything to do with Christmas I just adore and seeing how others got spoiled by their loved ones is so lovely! So following suit, another year another What I Got For Christmas post. Usually I'll put a disclaimer in here at this point, but you know what, I am so so thankful for all my gorgeous presents, so, so what if I want to show them off?! I hope you all show off your lovely presents! I don't feel like I need a disclaimer, anyone who thinks there is anything braggy about these posts are probably just a little bit bitter! So please enjoy and please link any of your Christmas posts below, I'd love to read them! 

My mam knows how much I love baking so picked me up a whole bundle of baking and cookery books. I can't wait to flick through them and decide what bits and pieces I'd like to make, and obviously share on here, feeding the addiction!

If you've been keeping up with my reading posts this year, I'm so happy to say I've completed my Goodreads reading challenge and I've read 50 books this year! All the while finishing my degree and plenty of other things! So I'll be setting myself the same target of 50 next year, so there will be plenty of book hauls and reviews coming next year, these books from my mam should start me off well! 

Onto some stationary bits, my boyfriend was nice enough to pick me up this beautiful 2017 diary from Oliver Bonas, it's got a beautiful design and is full of gorgeous illustrations! He also got me Bloom by Estee Lalonde which I am super excited to read! I'm lagging so much behind with my project life scrapbook for this year, but I'll catch up and will start another, my mam got me a core kit to keep me going! She also got me this gorgeous pink notebook and The Passive Aggressive Colouring Book which I think is hilarious! 

For some homeware bits and piece my boyfriend got me this gorgeous copper terrarium which I can't wait to fill! Also some cute little cactus candles! My mam got me a lightbox which I've been dying for for so long, love it! Also this beautiful trinket box with a little gold hedgehog and geometric design. 

Other home bits and pieces, my mam got me a lovely peppermint stick candle and a vanilla bourbon Yankee Candle, they smell amazing! She also got me these LED photo clip string lights which I can't wait to put up! She also got me a cute Happy Jackson mug and a Zoella Lifestyle set with a travel mug and gloves, so sweet! My dad got me a Yankee Candle Scenterpiece melter for my graduation so for Christmas he got me some of the melts, yum! Steven also gave me the cutest Peter Rabbit keyring, it's so so cute and so soft! 

My mam was lovely enough to get me a gorgeous new handbag from Dune, I love the style and colour! She also got me a new camera bag for my big ass camera that doesn't fit anywhere! I'm so pleased with it because camera bags are normally so ugly! This one is gorgeous! 

For accessory type pieces, Steven picked me up some Toy Story Vans which I am obsessed with! My mam got me this beautiful charm bracelet which is sea themed and just gorgeous! She also got me a new passport cover and luggage tags which I love! The doughnut print is so so cute! 

You all know my life is baking so I was lucky enough to get some baking/foodie bits. My mam got me a new spatula, love the design, a set of measuring cups, so cute! She also got me a new apron and oven gloves and a hot cocoa kit! Steven got me a pumpkin pie baking kit which pretty much sums me up! Love it! 

Onto beauty bits, I was over the moon that Steven got me the Spectrum Glam Clam! I've been lusting  after this for the longest time! The brushes are so soft I can't wait to use them! It's so cute! My mam picked me up the Zoella Beauty Gingerbread gift set, they smell amazing! She also got me some Korean sheet masks, the obsession is real! 

Steven was also lovely enough to get me a huge Lush Christmas Bathtime Favourites set, eek! He also got me the Aromatherapy Associates Star Jewels set, I've heard so much about these bath oils I can't wait to give them a go! Safe to say I'll be set for baths for the next few months! 

My dad picked me up this gorgeous Body Shop Spa of the World set, it's filled with some beautiful bits! Something that was a little treat to myself was these Bath & Bodyworks bits, I picked up the Merry Berry Christmas Body Lotion, Merry Cookie Hand Soap, Spiced Gingerbread Mini Candle and an anti-bacterial gel! 

My big present from Steven was something that I still can't even believe I own, I'm over the moon that he was able to and was thoughtful enough to get me something from the Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Collection! He's heard me banging on about them enough! He got me the Merry Bundle which has a Merry Lip Kit, Dancer Metal, Naughty Gloss, Mini Matte Liquid Lipstick Kit with Moon, Ginger, Kristen, Angel, Love Bite and Vixen. Also a Yellow Gold Creme Eyeshadow and the Holiday Edition Kyshadow Palette, all in a gorgeous makeup bag! So amazing I can't wait to try everything out! 

So that's my lovely presents, I'm so grateful for everything I received! Please link you posts below, I'd love to read them! 



  1. Merry Christmas Katie, and great post! I love these type of posts too, and I get ideas for gifting in the future. You got so many gorgeous things, wow! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on those fiction books, and many congrats on your 2016 reading goal, so deserved. The stylish camera bag you were given is lovely, I’m on the hunt for something similar as I have a photography passion also. I’ve done a presents post too, take a look if you have time. Best wishes for the coming year! :-) xx
