Hi Everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

First of all I hope you all had amazing holidays! May you have enjoyed the company with your loved ones and possibly some scrummy yummy food.

One of my favourite things this time of the year is to read and watch videos on ‘What I got for Christmas’. I have written several ones over the years and this year is no exception! Curious about my little loot continue reading!

Dusty Rose Coach bag ( Cute little bag, that the parents of my boyfriend gave me for Christmas)

Valentino by Mario Valentino bag Velvet Navy coloured bag. I was eyeballing a similar bag one day when shopping with my sis. So she generously got me this. It is such a stylish item and perfect for a night on the town.

Ikea gift card ( I am still in need of buying items for my house and Ikea has nice and convenient things for that purpose) This was gifted by my parents. Thanks mom and dad!

Amazon gift card ( Always useful and I can get whatever I want) Gifted by my aunt and uncle.

Pandora Disney Thumper Charm ( Because I love Disney and sparkly things) Gifted by my lovely Boyfriend!

Pandora Disney Mary Poppins Charm ( Same reason as stated above ūüėĄ.)Gifted by my lovely Boyfriend!

Pandora Jewelry box (Cute little Jewelry Box. Great for travel!)

La Vie Est Belle Absolu Perfume ( Oh My ! The first time I smelled this perfume I was in love! My lovely Boyfriend remembered that I love this perfume and made a photo when I showed him this perfume)

Philips mixer & Philips Blender/ Chopping Machine ( The ideal tools for the Lazy Working Girl! I am the worse in chopping it is so borring and I really dislike chopping an onion) Both pressies were give by my aunty S .

Ritual of Yalda & Holi Moley Shower Gel (These smell so delicious and Cream On Body Cream in Ritual of Holi. I am going to smell fabulous in 2019!ūüėé) Gifted by my boyfriends sister.

What I got for Christmas 2017

What I got for Christmas 2017

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

I might be a little late posting this post ,but I really wanted to share what I got for Christmas 2017. I really love reading or seeing what people got for their Christmases, birthdays etc. Therefore I could not resist writing this post. I really got spoiled and received a lot of things that I asked for from Santa.

Curious about what I received? Continue reading and enjoy!

IKEA Gift Card 

I really can’t wait to start spending this Gift Card as I have seen a lot of things I want and need from IKEA.

Lush Twilight Shower Gel

In a previous post I have stated  my love for this shower gel. And as Lush only brings this out around the Christmas period I really wanted a backup!


A navy blue Sea Salt Infinity Scarf. I love scarves and as it is going to get nippy coming week, this will be very useful.

Food Hamper 

Always useful! Who does not love a hamper full of Christmas snacks. This is love!

Amazon Gift Card

Love Amazon so this will come to use. I am sure I will spend it in a second.

Nespresso Innisia Coffee machine

Yeeh I finally have a George! Now I finally can be an adult and serve decent coffee when I have visitors. Whoop Whoop!

Coffee for the machine

Ofcourse George needs coffee capsules to make coffee. So I received 3 limited editions coffee capsules from Nespresso.

Philps Foam maker

To make the perfect Latte, I needed a Foam maker! And boy does this work. It is so satisfactory to see that troth created and tastes so good.

Prague Hat

Something to keep my head and ears warm when we get hit again by King Winter.

Continuing on my curiosity, what did you receive for Christmas? Pleas feel free and share what you received! If you are interested what I received last year? Please click here and continue reading.

Until next post friends!



What I got for Christmas 2016

What I got for Christmas 2016

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

It is time for one of my favourite posts of the year. It is what I got for Christmas time! Personally I love reading or watching these posts as they always serve as great inspiration for gift giving. And maybe I am just being a bit nosey. If you are curious or nosey (like me) about this post, please continue reading this post.

I received the following gifts,  for which I was and am very grateful for:

H&M gift card  – Always very useful as I always need new clothes heheh


BK Cooking Pot -I needed some pans and my mum thought I could use a tinier pan than the one I already owned

Oven Dishes – As I finally have an oven in my house, I can create lovely oven dishes. But because I did not own an oven I received this practical gift.

Guerlain Le Rouge Ecrin Jewel Lipstick Compact , in 06 Garance. This lipstick looks so luxurious and it feels really heavy in the hand. It is beautiful!  Unfortunately I bashed the lipstick before taking a picture so it looks sadly a bit bashed on the top. Sorry sis. The color is a browny pink colour and has a bit of a similar  finish like the lustre finish from MAC. I hope to write a Thumbs Review soon.

A lovely embroidered cushion. Matches the colour scheme that I have in my house. .

Bejeweled hair clip  This is a lovely hairpiece. Very lady like. I think it looks very antique like.

Amazon gift card. Really love these so convenient. I just love browzing through the Amazon website as they nearly have everything on hand.

And that concludes my ‘What I got for Christmas 2016’post.

Thank you for reading this post if you enjoyed reading this post maybe you want to read last years ‘What I got for Christmas’ ? If so click here. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Years and hope to see you back soon.

 Until next post friends.

Another practical tool provided by the Body Shop. Nothing beats a good tweezer. Will keep this save in my beauty stash to take out when I need it again.



Another set of golden earrings this time in the shape of clovers.  Hmmm I hope there will be some other pieces of jewelry in this calendar.
