A Forever Miss Vanity Christmas

This Christmas seemed to come and go so fast - it feels like it was over within a blink of an eye, however in that short period of time I managed to have so much fun and laughter and enjoyed spending a few days with my family and taking time off everything blog and work related. It was the first time in months I have been able to truly relax and value the time spent with my husband and parents. This year was a special Christmas as it was our first Christmas as a married couple and we made sure that no expenses were spared when it came to celebrating the big day.

Christmas day was spent at my parents with my husband and two of my parents best friends. We also had the added pleasure of seeing my Yorkshire terrier Ozzy that now lives with my mum and Dad and our friends dog who came along for Christmas. I love having pets around on Christmas day, watching them rip open their presents and snuggle up to everyone when people are too full from Christmas dinner. My mum put on an elaborate Christmas meal as per usual, to the point I feel like I've gained a stone.

When it came to Christmas presents, I was well and truly spoilt this year and cannot thank my wonderful husband and family enough for their generosity. 'Santa' aka the Hubby brought me this gorgeous Vivienne Westwood Orb clutch and the Vivienne Westwood Somerset Bas Relief pendant shown below.

I also was bought plenty of makeup including MAC goodies from my parents and the YSL Black Opium Eau de Parfum that I have been lusting over for the last few months (review to come soon).

Boxing day was spent visiting family members, going for our traditional boxing day walk and drinks and a meal at a local restaurant. On Boxing day I also bought these two books as Christmas treat to myself. I have already started reading 'In My Shoes' by Tamara Mellon and I'm hooked. It's very rare that I find a book that I cannot put down and i've been reading this almost solidly for the last few days.

As a perfect ending to our traditional Christmas, on Boxing day evening we were blessed with snow - even if it was a day late, it still made the festive season complete. This weekend has been spent snuggling up in pajamas, looking at the white frosting outside and watching dvds. The relaxation has been bliss.

Have you experienced any snow this Christmas?


  1. OOh I do like the YSL Black Opium, it smells so amazing x

  2. Ohh what a lovely selection of goodies - I hope you had a lovely Christmas! We unfortunately didn't get any snow, even thought I was cold enough! It would have been nice to have a white Christmas but either way it was such a lovely day - I do love Christmas :D

  11. You've spent such a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones my dear, it's been a pleasure reading this post, thank you for sharing it with us. I spent my Christmas with my family (my husband and son) and friends, and it was lovely.
    I live in Toronto, we didn't have a white Christmas this year, but it was great even without snow, especially since I am also on vacation for the entire holiday season, and I'm going back to work next Monday on January 5.
    Wishing you a Happy New Year and all the best!
