Friendmas, Family & Traditions

Happy belated Christmas angels, if that’s even a saying? I hope you all had the most fabulous Christmas ever and got spoilt with pressies and wine. So for this weeks post, I will be giving you a little haul and running through some of my festive traditions! Just a little disclaimer: I am not posting this to be a braggy bitch, I just want to share all the lovely things I got!


It’s no secret that my parents are divorced, so each year I spend Christmas Day with my mum and then have another Christmas Day on Boxing Day with my dad and it is safe to say that my dad really did spoil me this year.



Under the tree, he wrapped this pressie up in gold wrapping with the prettiest bow (which is such a shocker for my dad to use bows haha) and it was Air Pods, which I so wasn’t expecting. When I say they are amazing, I mean they are so fucking good. I was worried they would fall out but they fit so snug in your ear and as soon as you put them in they automatically connect via Bluetooth and there’s no faffing around with cables. I am just SO in love!!



I have been really struggling with my sleeping pattern at the moment so this Christmas I got lots of little bits to provide me the cosiest and best sleep ever, starting with a gorgeous Neom Lavender Candle, which is part of their Scent to Sleep range. Do I feel boujiee now I have a Neom Candle? Yes. But it smells insane!! Without even lighting it the smell fills the room and I’ve never had that with a candle before. Next is the Feather & Down Pillow Spray. I have wanted a spray for so long that wasn’t too overpowering and purely just Lavender scented and this is the perfect smell as it is infused with Chamomile too.


Each year me and Chan host a little Christmas day, where we exchange presents, watch Christmas movies and cook a mini roast and we have done it for 5 years now and it’s potentially my fav part of the festive period.


Another cute tradition we have is buying each other moon themed matching jewellery and it started on our first holiday 4 years ago and has continued till now. This year she surprised me with adorable little moon earrings and I am obsessed, they are SO cute and so sentimental.



Along with the earrings she kindly gifted me a selection of smelly sets, stationary and the most gorgeous highlighter palette. If you know me personally or have read my blog for a v long time you’ll know my love for highlighter. I don’t like a subtle natural glow, with me more is more haha! So Sleek palettes are my go-to for the prettiest blinding glow and the packaging is to die for. Thank you Chan for being the bestest friend and for spoiling me rotten, love you tonnes!!


Not going to lie, I didn’t have a clue what to call this little segment so we will go along with sentimental haha!


My Pandora bracelet is one of my most treasured pieces of jewellery as all my charms have meaning and this year one of my fav people treated me to the freaking cutest cat charm ever and I am in love. Unfortunately, it is too small for my bangle so I will have to get it swapped but he’s just way too cute to not feature in this post!!


Lastly, I want to talk about some of the amazing perfumes I got this year. I have been in desperate need of new perfume and I am so so happy with the ones I was luckily gifted. Starting with Jimmy Choo (defo feeling boujiee now), which is described as feminine yet empowering and I couldn’t agree more, plus the bottle is the prettiest thing ever. Other gorgeous perfumes I got was the Ariana Grande Sweet like Candy and Rihanna Ri Ri and I am over the moon with all of them.

I want to finish this post off by saying a massive thank you to all the kind people in my life that have spoiled me rotten this Christmas, I am beyond grateful and another huge thank you to you reading this for the constant support – you are the best Christmas present I could ask for. Lots of love always.

Until next time,

    I know it’s been and gone now – but Merry Christmas my lovely! It looks like you had an amazing couple of days! I love the sound of all of your traditions, so cute ❤️ Anna is always raving about her AirPods (but then she lives for all things Mac!), they do sound really cool though! Sam xx

      Merry Christmas to you too gorgeous!! Thank you so so much for reading and leaving a lovely comment. The air pods are so amazing I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get my hands on them, I can’t live without them now haha! Xx

    Those airpods look cool, do they have to be charged up or anything between uses? I love seeing people’s Pandora bracelets because the charms are so personal and that cat is so cute! I’d be paranoid I’d band the bracelet or the charms would fall off if I had one haha. Great gifts and thanks for sharing, love the photography in this post ❤ xx

      They come in a little case which charges the air pods when they’re not in use then you charge up the case separately. I think they say every two days you should stick them on charge if you’re using them a lot! Thank you so much for reading gorgeous! Xxx

    I have that Sleek Highlighter palette and I love it so much – the lilac shade is definitely my favourite as a cool-skinned person. Hope you had a good Christmas and Happy New Year! xx
