This is how our Christmas works; I wake up first and pounce on my sister (who is three years younger than me) to tell her that "He's been!", childish I know! Then we go into my parents room and open our stocking together on their bed. I'm 19 years old and this tradition is still going strong! Once the stockings have been opened we have a cup of tea in bed before we're allowed to go downstairs to open our main presents (our parents like to 'stretch out the presents' so that hours of wrapping are not put to waste in a matter of minutes!). The photo' above shows how our presents are laid out; when we were younger they were sorted into piles but now they're all jumbled to slow us down! I'm not gonna to show you guys everything because that would be boring, so I'll just show you a few of my favourites! I had the usual make up, nail polish and clothes but I'm going to keep them for a separate post; I will do a OOTD sometime soon!ha. So here's what I got for Christmas 2010;
I'm such a girl! Since my parents mentioned that I can have my bedroom redecorated after Christmas, it has become my life's goal to collect as many different candles as possible! I had these few as gifts and you can see from these the colours that my new room will be! Ah can't wait to get the paint out!
Ah my little sewing accessories! You can tell you're getting older by the fact that your presents become more practical! I'm not moaning by saying this as these items were top of my list! I love my new, cupcake pincushion! Way more personal than the little plastic box I had! I'm all kitted out ready for uni' again I just need a sewing box (quite important I know!). John Lewis stock these two amazing Cath Kidston sewing baskets but I think they'll be a bit impractical to take to uni' and back everyday. Love to have one in my own little sewing space one day though! Anyone know of any practical sized sewing boxes around?
Everyone has DVD's for Christmas! The only one I asked for was Gossip Girl as I didn't watch it when it was on TV like everyone else did. I ended up finding out how completely addicted I would become to it 3 years late?! Bad times! I'm already two discs into this box-set, I need to find out what happens next! The other films weren't on my list that's why they're a bit random! I will end up watching them though, like cwtching up to a good film!
My main presents from my parents! I really didn't know what to expect as I had a car a few months ago so just thought I would get little bits, was quite chuffed when I unwrapped this baby! Up until now I have been using an old boxy, portable TV combi, not cool! Moving up in the world now! Plays my new Gossip Girl like a dream!ha. Also my second surprise was Take That tickets! I went last year and completely loved it even though I'm not a hardcore TT fan, shameful! Sooo looking forward to going now; Katy Perry and Take That, 2011 will be the year for live music for me! Rihanna's tour looks amazing this year too so would love to make that the third!
And last but not least, this is what the boyfriend got me! He did good, I've taught him to shop well! Got my style well fair play! But my main present from him was...
A MACBOOK! I love my MacBook and I love my boyfriend!ha. I thought it would take me longer to be converted from PC but I've had no problems as of yet! He even put Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator on it for me for university (you can see from the images that I have been having a go!) It's so much faster than my old netbook, I don't think I've put it down yet? Most probably where the migraine come from!
Ah I feel kind of relieved to get this post done! Just maybe a post of New Years Resolutions tomorrow before I take a vow to make my blog more fashiony as that is where I want to be going in life. Wow deep, I know! Anyways I hope everyone had what they wanted for Christmas, I know I did (I was spoilt rotten this year!) I can't believe tomorrow today is the last day of 2010! Got me some deep thinking of what my resolutions can be so...
