Bonjour mes anges, I hope you all had a magical Christmas filled with strawberry cream chocolates, wondrous gifts, pink champagne, sparkles and most importantly enjoying the time spent with your loved ones! I also hope you’re having an enchanting start to 2019 and the new year brings all that your angelic hearts wish for! This year I spent Christmas with my beautiful 91 year old grandma so it was different, quiet and at times busy and stressful as I was settling into her routine, because it was just us two for a week and I was taking care of her! It was truly lovely though to spend quality time together as I love my grandma dearly and I wanted to make her Christmas a happy one! So I thought it was about time I finally shared the dreamy gifts I was lucky enough to recieve because I am just so appreciative to have a few close people around me who make me feel loved! Some people assume these posts are bragging but I think otherwise, it’s a chance to share the magic with eachother!
I was excited to unwrap three Pandora charms on Christmas morning, my grandma surprised me with Belle’s Radiant Rose Charm which is simply stunning and so thoughtful, it’s such a princessy charm inspired by the enchanted rose from one of my favourite fairytales, Beauty and the Beast! It has dainty cut out roses around the sides which are reflected in the cerise pink cubic zirconia crystal in the centre which makes it all that more magical to look at!
Also from Pandora I received two of the loveliest charms for my bracelet from my brother and sister in law! One of them being the Shimmering Minnie Portrait Clip which is the cutest Disney charm, a sterling silver portrait of Minnie Mouse with her signature bow which is detailed with sparkling pink cubic zirconia crystals.
The third charm is so special and sweet as it symbolises the eternal bond I have with my big brother, it’s called the Sister’s Love Charm, a sterling silver heart, delicately engraved with “Sister” in a scripted font and shimmers with a pink heart shaped crystal on both sides. I now have charms adorning my bracelet from some of my favourite people in my life and I can’t wait to collect more pretty Pandora charms to represent moments, people and memories I treasure.
Christmas Dreams Pink Swan Too Faced Brush Set
My love Simon made one of my Christmas wishes come true and treated me to the magical Christmas Dreams Pink Swan brush set! I instantly fell in love with this girly set the moment Too Faced revealed their Christmas products so I couldn’t be more grateful to own them! It contains five luxurious brushes which have the softest candyfloss pink bristles and the pink handles have been sprinkled with twinkling gold fairy dust stars which transform them into fairy wands, perfect to create makeup magic! The gorgeous brushes come complete inside a pink pouch which has the same enchanting starry print, a cute gold heart zip and ‘I Dream In Makeup’ written across in a fancy gold script! I’ve absolutely adored the dreamy 2018 Too Faced Christmas range and these pretty and pink brushes that I also feel match my blog design will look just perfect on my princess vanity!
Marie 2019 Diary
Simon also gifted me this adorable pink and white candy striped diary for 2019 which features my favourite Parisian kitten Marie gracing the front looking oh so girly and chic! This is just the perfect diary for me and I’m very much looking forward to getting organised and jotting down my plans for the new year.
My grandma also kindly gave me some Christmas money so I decided to treat myself to this dainty Ted Baker Carabel Ballerina Necklace which has been on my wishlist for a while now and I also included it in my Christmas gift guide! As most of you know I recently watched The Nutcracker ballet in London and myself and my grandma also enjoy watching the ballet together on tele so it’s such a special keepsake! The pretty ballerina is set on a rose gold chain, wearing a graceful pink tutu, with a pink satin bow and an elegant pearl detail. It reminds me of a music box ballerina that you would see delicately twirling around inside, it’s so whimsical and was packaged beautifully inside a soft grey velvet pouch tied with a bow inside a ballet pink gift box.
Millennial Pink Sequined Minnie Ears
Oh myyy is this not the cutest most girly pair of Disney Minnie ears made for pink princesses?! I feel entirely grateful that I now own the iconic millenial pink Minnie Mouse ears which were exclusive to Disney World Florida untill recently have they become available online! My pink twin Catherine very kindly picked up a pair for me when she recently went to Disney World and surprised me with them as a Christmas present! They are just the perfect shade of pink and completely my aesthetic and I hope it won’t be long until I’m in the Magic Kingdom wearing them and trying all the adorable pink millenial treats I can manage with Cinderella’s castle in sight!
Beauty and the Beast 2019 Calender
My princess Catherine also generously surprised me with this Beauty and the Beast calendar for the new year which is just so thoughtful with it being one of my all time favourite Disney films, it’s also pink and pastel which is rare to find when it comes to Beauty and the Beast merchandise and the illustrations & quotes throughout are so magical and elegant! I can’t wait to hang it up and start using it.
Happy 2019 princesses, dream big, spread kindness & stay magical!
