What I Got Treated To On Christmas Day

Happy New Year lovelies! I hope that you all had a magical Christmas and New Year filled with pink champagne, sparkles and cosy scented candles. I always really enjoy reading these 'What I Got For Christmas' blog posts as it's so nice to see what everyone else got treated to and it's perfect for gift ideas too. I was totally spoilt with some gorgeous pink pieces from my wishlist this year so I hope that you enjoy reading about them... 

My husband spoilt me with my dream handbag! I'd been wanting to own a Ted Baker handbag for a little while now and although I'd seen lots of beautiful ones, I fell head over heels for this pretty little bow tote bag. I actually purchased it on Black Friday whilst Ted Baker were having a sneaky little discount so I knew that I was getting this but I was still so excited to unwrap it on Christmas morning. It's made from a gorgeous blush pink soft grain leather and has the loveliest rose gold hardware details and a dainty little bow on the front. It's quite small compared to some of my other handbags but I'll be keeping this one for special girly occasions. 

My mum and dad treated me to this beautiful pair of pale pink Ugg boots which just look as if they were made for me! I'd had them on my wishlist for a little while now and I was so pleased to receive them for Christmas as I was in need of a new pair of Uggs. I get so much wear out of them all year round and these ones are a very soft sugary pink complete with a delicate poppy detail which is so pretty and girly. Inside, they have the fluffiest candyfloss pink lining and I can't wait to wear them paired with some pastel knitwear, fluffy scarves and cute bobble hats! 

Disney Pink Glitter Princess Castle Tumbler 
Everything about Disney is so princessy and magical so when I spotted this sparkly pink coffee cup peeking out of my stocking, I was a little excited. I love drinking coffee and I've owned a few different reusable cups before but I've always found that most of them are quite flimsy and they leak really easily too. I'm really excited to use this one as it's covered in pink sparkly glitter that really shimmers when it catches the light and has 'if you need me, I'll be in my castle' written in a cute font on the front with a dainty illustration of Cinderella's castle. I think it will be perfect for having my cappuccinos in if I'm out shopping or for a snowy winter walk! 

Pink Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Set 
In the winter time, I become totally obsessed with drinking hot chocolates so I was really pleased when I received this sweet little set. The mug is a gorgeous pale pink colour with a pretty white love heart print and it's actually a really large size so that you can make a massive indulgent hot chocolate. It comes complete with a little sachet of hot chocolate and a packet of mini white marshmallows so I'm looking forward to drinking this on a cold snowy day! 

Pink Hot Chocolate Spoons Set 
I also got the matching Hot Chocolate Spoons set which I thought was so cute! The packaging is adorable with the little mini white snowflakes and pink love hearts and it has a sweet little pink satin bow. It comes with four chocolate spoons with mini marshmallows in milk, mint, orange and caramel flavours and I can't wait to try them out! 

Too Faced Sugar Cookie Palette 
I'd had my eye on this lovely little limited edition palette from Too Faced as I thought the packaging was sweet and the shades looked lovely, but it never seemed to be in stock anywhere so I was really excited to unwrap it. It's a lovely cream palette decorated with pastel pink and soft brown sugar cookies covered in sprinkles and it has a sugary sweet scent which smells like fresh cookies straight out of the oven. The little palette contains eight lovely neutral shades with a pop of soft pink and I love the look of 'Nom Nom' which is a silvery iridescent glitter, 'Butter & Love' which is a lovely soft cream and 'Cookie Pusher' which is a beautiful mauve pink with a hint of glitter. I was really impressed at how creamy and pigmented the shades are and I'm looking forward to using this little one! 

Too Faced Diamond Light Highlighter 
Another makeup item that I received is this stunning pink Diamond Highlighter from Too Faced that has been on my wishlist for ages! The packaging is beautiful and is made to look like a pretty pink engagement ring box complete with delicate gold detailing and a black satin lining on the inside. The highlighter itself is infused with real crushed diamond powder and light reflecting pearls which makes it so special and unique. It's a gorgeous soft creamy vanilla pearl shade with swirls of pink, blue and champagne which gives a subtle sparkly effect, just like a real diamond! 

SL Miss Glam Princess Vibes Makeup Bag 
I've been wanting to treat myself to something from SL Miss Glam Beauty for ages as I'm obsessed with her girly pink YouTube channel. She is just the sweetest and has two beautiful twin baby girls and loves all things rainbowy, pink and sprinkled with unicorn magic and glitter. I was so excited when I found this gorgeous Princess Vibes makeup bag under my Christmas tree that I may have squealed slightly! It's the perfect shade of pale pink and has 'princess vibes' written across it in a gold script font complete with little love hearts. I'm so impressed with the quality and I'm planning on using it as my everyday makeup bag to keep on top of my dressing table as it's too pretty to hide away. I'd love to collect some of her makeup brush books next and the one I have my eye on is the Pink Princess set! 

The White Company White Christmas Candle 
I mentioned this candle in my Pink Christmas Eve Prettiness blog post as I actually bought it when I took a little festive trip to Edinburgh so it wasn't actually a surprise but my husband popped it away so that I could open it properly on Christmas Day. I love The White Company candles as they always smell beautiful and burn for so long. One of my favourites for this time of the year is Winter which has more of a spicy cinnamon scent whereas this White Christmas one is much fresher with hints of sweet almond blossom, neroli and honeysuckle. I also adore the frosted silver sparkly jar that it comes in which I'm planning on using as decor once I've burned the candle! 

Kikki K Pale Pink Planner
One of my favourite gifts that I received this year is this beautiful soft pale pink leather planner from Kikki K as it's a New Year's resolution of mine to become a little more organised. It's filled with milkshake pink dividers with little sections for 'to do', 'calendar' and even a little 'notes' sticky pad. I've ordered some pretty weekly planner inserts, some adorable paper clips and also some cute stickers so if you would be interested in seeing some of these items, please do let me know! 

Silver Glittery Prosecco Notebook 
The last little item that I have to show you is this sweet silver and white sparkly notebook. I'm not sure where it's from as there doesn't seem to be a brand on it but it's the perfect A5 size which I'm planning on using for notes for my blog post planning. It says 'I'll be there in a prosecco!' which is such a cute quote and it's adorned in little silver sparkles which makes it so princessy! 

What gifts were you spoilt with on Christmas Day? I'd love to see!
