Happy Christmas ♥

Christmas― that time of the year when I can eat an entire pyrex of mango float in one sitting. Haha :)

Being engaged to an Englishman meant we needed to have a proper English Christmas. We had roast turkey, roast potatoes, sweet corn, roasted carrots and pink champagne. For dessert, we ate the yummy Christmas pudding that he bought from Harrods on his recent trip home. And we also watched the Queen's annual speech online.

On the left are the presents that he got for me and on the right are the stuff that I got for him. I bought him a classic black dress shirt for work, a pair of Havaianas flip flops, a book from his favorite author and a jewelry case for all his cufflinks. Here are my pressies:

I die. I LOVED reading this book so much I finished it in 2 days. I love all the vintage dresses!

Gorgeous LBD. Love the sheer sleeves and the beaded details on the peterpan collar and on the cuffs. So perfect for a NYE dinner.

Leather gloves from Promod

Accessories from Aldo

Heathcote & Ivory Fragrance Drawer Liners. Both of us love getting scented sachets for our closets. So happy he got me these for my closet shelves. I love the Sweet Pea & Honeysuckle scent and the floral print.

He also got me a day-by-day Gemini Astrological book guide, a bottle of bubble bath from The Body Shop and this yummy cream Oleg Cassini clutch for our Secret Santa Saturdays. 

I enjoyed my Christmas. Hope you all did, too. :)
Happy Holidays!
