I'm back to the blogging world after a rather crazy Christmas with lots of friends, family, work and a brief stint in hospital... dramatic! But I'm back now in the new year full of positive thoughts and good intentions! I thought I would dedicate my first post of the new year with the classic 'Christmas presents', a bit cliche I know, but everyone loves a good nosey at what you got for xmas! On another note, I have got a crazy few weeks ahead of me with a ridiculous amount of work to be handed in at the end of January and then hopefully a trip to Milan as a treat to myself after it all (whilst doing research, of course!) Will keep you updated!

I'm loving dark lipstick at the moment, so I got 2! The mac one is 'media', a beautiful berry colour, and the other is Kate Moss for Rimmel. I have also wanted Elizabeth Arden's classic 8 hour cream for agesss, and it hasn't disappointed! And if you haven't tried Liz Earle's products yet, you must, they are amazing!!!

Boots- boohoo. These make me SO tall, which I love!! 

My main present- River Island. These boots are absolutely lush , I have been wearing them every single day since I got them, I love them quite a lot! 

The snazzy red zip at the back
I also got a few items of clothing, which are currently in the wash as I'm preparing to move back to uni on Sunday, and a ridiculous amount of chocolate which isn't fitting in well with my new years resolutions! Anyway hope you all had a lovely Christmas and new year, happy 2012! :)


  1. Love those sheepskin heels, very on trend this season- still able to keep warm yet they're still chic! Hope nothing major happened in hospital & would love to see photo's if you do take a trip to Milan, such a beautiful place.
