Christmas & Sales

Black shoes

'What I got for Christmas' posts seems to be popping up everywhere, so I've decided to join the bandwagon... with a twist. I wanted to showcase both items that I received for Christmas and pieces that I picked up this Sales season, incorporating them in a fun video. 

I didn't particularly ask for anything this Christmas, with the exception of new volleyball shoes, which you can (sort of) see in the top left of the video. I have been practicing the sport for a while now, but these are my first volleyball-specific pair and I can't wait to show the off on court. 

As you my already know, I love The Body Shop - which is why I really enjoyed unwrapping a lovely gift set with the shop's newest Plum collection - including a tub of body butter, shimmer cream, body gel, and body scrub. 

As soon as the Sales season started, I rushed to the stores for a wardrobe update. I love buying staple pieces while they are on sale, so I grabbed some new cropped jeans from Zara and anther pair of true skinny jeans from Mango. I was in need of new work tops, so I brought home a white frill top from Mango, a navy polka-dot collar shirt from H&M, and a high-neck patterned blouse from Asos. Thinking of the warm days, I also grabbed a new pair of tortoise shell sunglasses, also from Asos, and some simple gold bracelets and set of rings by Mango.

I also (finally!) had the patience to rummage through Primark to find star buys, and managed to leave with a new long-sleeve cross-over blouse, a pink clutch bag, and  a suede waterfall sleeveless jacket. I also ended up buying a new black and gold waist belt from Asos to go with the jacket. 

Beauty-wise, I just picked up essentials from Kiko Cosmetics, including a new lip liner and a luxurious energy boost serum. 

The star buy of this season, however, has to be my new BCBGMaxazria dress. This strapless black and white maxi dress is a dream - and you probably won't believe me when I say I managed to snatch it for under £50!
