I'm a nosey bugger - I love reading about what other people have received for Christmas and I always have. So, the other day on Twitter I asked whether anyone would like to see a post from me, and the response was 100% positive, so here we go! I was extremely lucky to get such lovely gifts this year (as always!) so here's a picture or two and a quick run down of the lovely presents that were waiting for me under the tree...

- CanoEF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens (the only thing I asked Father Christmas for!)
- Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette (a surprise from my younger sister!)
- Trend on Ten & Coca Cola OPI Nail Polish Sets
- MAC Lipgloss in Saint Germain 
- Plenty of Chocolate!
- A gorgeous gold purse/clutch bag from Banana Republic
- The comfiest onesie from M&S 
- Some Bobbi Brown goodies
- And lots of other jolly bits and bobs...

As I said, I was extremely lucky, and this post is in no way supposed to be about me bragging or showing off, but like I said, I'm nosey and I'm sure a lot of you lot are too so I thought I'd share! Let me know what you guys got or send me a link to your 'What I got for Christmas' post, and let me know if you want to know more about any of the things above. I hope that you're all enjoying the holiday and spending time with friends and family!

  7. I use the 40mm lens! You'll have to let me know what you think of it :)

  8. And I feel bad that you feel you need to apologise about sharing what you have - it always worries me when people get upset because things ≠ happiness... If you're going to feel jealous about anything it really shouldn't be someone else's stuff!

  9. I'd love to get my hands on a decent small lense! I bet the 40mm is so cute :) Lovely bits x

  17. So true haha! You are far kinder than I am ;) and I love it for close ups, it's great to travel with but I don't seem to get on with it for landscapes as much... It is a great lens though! x
