Santa and Sales

Christmas already seems like a bit of a distant memory but I thought I'd share some of my presents and sale purchases (a little belated, I know, but being back home completely wrecks my routine and results in an awful lot less time spent online). Santa was good to me this year and I love all of the presents that he my parents got me:


1. Presents arrived in this stylish "Mrs Santa" bag.

2. Rituals shower gel and Kenzo Flower perfume.

3. Stationery - 2012 Paperchase diary, "Gloomy the Grizzly" notebook and a Santa bear notebook.

4. Whistles fur collar cardigan.

5. Jack Wills sweatshirt.

6. Oasis top and animal print socks.

7. Silver ring from Helen London @ Spitalfields Market.

8. Silver and gold bird necklace.

My Christmas money from my grandparents was put to good use at the sales:


1. Limited Collection @ M&S heels - £25 reduced to £9.

2. Nike trainers - reduced to £19.50.

3. Dorothy Perkins coat - £59 reduced to £30.

4. Next dress - reduced to £14.

5. Dorothy Perkins dress - reduced to £17.

6. Limited Collection @ M&S dress - reduced to £25.

I'm super excited to be starting 2012 with some nice new treats and a few additions to my working wardrobe. It makes the prospect of January and February (my least favourite months) a little less depressing!
