something on a sunday: what I got for christmas

It's been a little while since I last posted, obviously because it has been Christmas and I've been pretty busy. I hope I'm not the only one feeling the post-Christmas blues. I had a lovely few days but it's slightly sad to go back to normal life sometimes.

I really enjoy reading other people's posts about what they got for Christmas so I thought I'd share some of the bits I got. I have filmed a video but due to me getting a new (DSLR) camera for Christmas, I'm having trouble uploading it with my rubbish laptop, but I'm still trying my best to get it up.

As I've just said, I got a new camera for Christmas which I shared with you on my Christmas wish list and it is the Canon 600D. I'm still trying to get my head and hands around it so excuse the dark pictures, even though that is because I took them in the evening (always a bad idea).


So as you can see, the main items I got were:
(click on the items to go to the websites)
Canon EOS 600D DSLR (inc 18-55mm lens): My parents and boyfriend Dan came together to get this for me (for xmas and my 21st combined).I am loving this so far but I have been having little wobbles over it because it is such a step up from my other camera! I love the challenge of it all but I definitely wouldn't take on a DSLR too lightly. I also got a camera case and SD card to go along with it.
Pugs Not Drugs jumper: I love this slogan and I've been eyeing up these t-shirts and jumpers in Urban Outfitters for ages and my boyfriend got the hint. It's so cosy and warm!
Topshop Geek t-shirt: Again, this is another item I've been wanting for a long time and I love it. It looks great with a high waisted black skirt and my American Apparel high shine leggings.
Topshop Fleck Oversized top: I already have one of these in black and it's a staple in my wardrobe because I can put it with anything, particularly leggings. I love this speckled grey version and I've been wearing it a lot already. (outfit post feat this coming soon!)
Blog Inc book: I had asked for this and my parents got it for me. It's a really interested book by a long running design blogger and I can't wait to sit down and read it properly. It delves into many factors and tips about blogging, making it very informative and inspiring.

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish: I have been wanting this for a while but didn't really want to spend £5 on nail polish remover (stingy I know). I wish I had now because it really is magic. It removes nail polish so quickly and does a good job at removing the majority of glitter polish too. In a way I think it is worth the £5 because I don't have to waste loads of cotton pads!
Soap & Glory Clean on Me, Heel Genius and Wash Your Hands of it: I had asked for more Soap & Glory bits and these were the products I got. The only one I've used so far is Clean on Me (shower lotion) and I'm already loving it.
LUSH Lip Scrub in Popcorn and LUSH Butterball bath bombs: I had also asked for some LUSH products and these are the lovely products I got. I haven't used the bombs yet but can't wait to. The lip scrub is a really lovely idea and product and I can't wait to use this more regularly.
Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray: I've wanted to try Bumble & Bumble products for a long time now and I was treated to this cute little Surf Spray and I can't wait to give this a go.
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Eau de Parfum: This is my all time favourite perfume and I was so pleased to get a new bottle because my other bottle had literally just run out.
River Island via ASOS earrings: I love these earrings, they are all so cute and because I now have two ear holes, I wanted some new studs in my collection.
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas post. I did get other little bits in my stocking etc and I got some money which I'm planning to spend on camera accessories and I may have made a cheeky high-end foundation purchase (post coming soon). I can't thank my family and Dan enough for spoiling me so much!
I apoligise for it being so long but I wanted to share my bits with you. Keep an eye out for lots of reviews of these bits and bobs!
Please comment with your Christmas post links or let me know what you got as I'm rather nosy!
Thanks for reading as usual.
