Christmas Haul

It's been a while. I have been in and dated with schoolwork and exams, but I think I'm on a bit of a break over christmas so I thought I'd try and get back into posting regularly again. Once a week if possible. I'd like to do a post about my textiles coursework that I'm in the middle of, but I have to finish it first!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful christmas, I don't know why but this year, I wasn't as excited as I thought I would be. However, I did have a nice relaxing day at home with family, and I recieved some lovely presents as well, which I thought I would share online.

Cath Kidston Manicure Set
This cute little gift set comes with some hand cream, hand scrub, cuticle cream and an nail file. All the products are Blossom scented (except for the file of course!) and the smell is super fresh and flowery, plus the packaging is really pretty as well. I've tried the handcream and it feels very moisturising - I think I'll be keeping it in my bag from now on(:

Fairisle Pajamas - Marks and Spencers
Oh my goodness I can't even begin to explain how cosy these pajamas are! I think they're made of fleece and they keep you so so warm and comfortable, it's like heaven. It came with a plain with top as well, but I thought I'd just show the bottoms because they're so cute. The little reindeers make it feel christmas-y but not so much that I wouldn't wear them throughout the year. Trust me, I will be!

Soap and Glory gift set
 This is a monster present. £75 worth of full sized Soap and Glory goodies in a big travel bag. I was pretty shocked at how much of it there was, but Mum told me later that she only paid £27 for all of it. If they still have any in Boots, I urge you to grab one before they all go because this is incredible value. I have tried a few of the products already, but I think I'll wait until I've sampled them all before posting a full review.

DC Comic Collection - Converse
This is what I was waiting for. I knew I had to have a pair of these as soon as a set eyes on them in October. It was the only present I really asked for and I'm so glad that I did. I will live and die in these babies. One thing that I am a bit obessesed with at the moment is Superheroes. I always loved watching the movies but then I started liking things with Superheroes on them - specifically fashion stuff.
Being Converse and all, these shoes are well fitting, sturdy and very comfortable. So even if you are not after a Batman pair, I really recommend buying a pair if you're looking for trainers/hightops. These only cost £50 so I'm sure you could get cheaper styles or patterns!

Thank you for reading, and hopefully I'll be posting again soon, I think I'll make a brainstorm of ideas.

Request!

I'm doing a project in Citizenship all about fashion and replicating designer products. I neeeeeed people to answer a survey, and I thought I would find more fashion-savvy people with a blog than at school. I'd appreciate it so so much if you could take just 2minutes (it's really not very long) to fill it out(:

Thank You so much(: xxxx
