So its that time when everyone starts to use the goodies they got for Christmas and I thought I would share a few of the bits that I got before I start using them and putting them away. I didn’t really have much on my list this year and If I did, they were items which were more on the pricer side.
Lets begin with books. Im not usually a book kinda gal but if it has something to do with fashion, blogging or instagram I’m sold. I have had my eye on these books for a while but books aren’t something that I ever want to spend my money on. The Love X Style X Life book is one of those which I have always wanted to read and has an array of things about fashion and life and its so pretty. The Capture Your Style book by Aimee Song is one that I have been keen to get my hands on for ages and honestly has already taught me so much about upping my insta game. Keep your eyes on my instagram @iamcharlotteolivia I have already begun my attempt at upping my game. Lets see how long it lasts.
I have wanted a real leather jacket for the longest time and didn’t really think id get my hands on one for a good few years. I wear my faux leather jacket religiously so it seemed about time I got a real one. This is my ideal leather jacket and I believe its one of the most popular ones from All Saints. Its called the Balfern and it just your classic biker jacket. I LOVE it, I cannot wait to wear it when it gets a little warmer
This photo includes 2 of the goodies I got for Christmas. Firstly I got this beaut Teddy dressing gown from Topshop which is so cosy and warm and Im so excited to have a new dressing gown. Lets just say my old one is a tad gross looking. The other gift is this amazing lens I got for my Olympus Pen camera. I got the Pancake lens which I’m literally obsessed with I can’t stop taking photos with it. It literally makes your photos look amazing I don’t ever want to go back to the old one.
The final gift that I am going to share with you is one of my new make up items. I have wanted to try Benefit Hoola bronzer for so long but its just one of those things I never wanted to spend my money on. I actually tried it this morning and boy is it pigmented. For a pale girl, its kinda dark but I’m sure I can make it work. I dont think I was quite prepared for how dark it was going to come out on my face but I do actually love the bronzer. With a little practice I’m sure I’ll be able to make it work for me. I also got given a make up lesson at the benefit counter which I’m super excited about because Benefit it deffo one of my favourite make up brands. I love the Roller Lash mascara its AMAZING.
What did you get for Christmas? I’d love to know.. Im nosey like that!
Hope you all had an amazing Christmas!
