What I Got For Christmas 2018

In today's post, I'm bringing you this year's "What I Got For Christmas". I thoroughly enjoyed writing and photographing for this type of post last year, so I'm thinking of making it a yearly tradition on my blog. It goes without saying but I am extremely grateful to everyone who got me something this year. I didn't include the gifts I received from my friends in this post - just because I've already eaten/used most of the items! - but I absolutely love each and every one of their presents to me. They all know me so well! 


This gift was from my brother and his girlfriend and I was not expecting it at all! If you don't know what a Sprocket is, it's basically like a mini printer for your phone. I tried it out with a couple of my favourite photos and was surprised at how quick and easy the process was. I love how the film has a sticky side on the back. I have a "Photo a Month" spread in my bullet journal so this Sprocket will definitely come in handy for that.

From my Grandma, I got this 2019 diary. I love the marble design and gold lettering. I tried using my bullet journal for both personal and school purposes but it got quite messy and confusing so I thought having a separate diary for all my Uni assignments would work much better.




I've been wearing a lot of denim recently so I super excited to receive this dress from my parents. I really like the frayed bottom and the distressed effect it gives off. They also got me another gift which I was quite surprised by. I've had my Pandora bracelet for about a year now and it's had one charm for that length of time too so being able to add a second and third was very exciting. The silver heart and intricate dragonfly/ladybird charm are the perfect combo. They also go really well with my pink heart.


This year, I decided to treat myself to a book. I've been wanting to read "Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine" for such a long time but every time I would go to the library to check it out, it'd either be borrowed or reserved. This only made me more desperate to get my hands on it! My theory is; if a book is that hard to check out, then it must be really worth the read!

Hope you all had a great Christmas and see you in the new year!!


  1. Oooh I love your pandora bracelet! I always gawk at other people's haha. Sounds like you got some lovely presents! xx

  2. Your photos are all stunning! I haven't heard of a sprocket before but its such a good idea! I have so many photos on my phone that I never get around to printing x

  3. Some lovely gifts we read Eleanor oliphant as part of our book club read let us know what you think I enjoyed it but we're mixed reviews at the club. Happy 2019 xx

  4. You got some lovely gifts and your photos are amazing! Your brother did so well choosing his gift!!! The bracelet is beautiful too x


  5. What a lovely collection of presents here! I also adore your photos, woow they're soo pretty. I've looked into getting the Sprocket but I feel it's a little pricey for what it is, I keep going round in circles on it. I've heard good things about Eleanor Oliphant, I might just get my hands on it.
