I've Been A Very Lucky Girl...


I've Been A Very Lucky Girl...

I am so sorry for the lack of posts over the last very days. I wanted to spend Christmas with my family and I have also got a little job for the Christmas holidays so I was working on Boxing Day and the day after. And I've been having some problems with my camera although I hope that it is all sorted out now. 

I know I'm a little late as it's now New Years Eve but I really wanted to show you some of the amazing things that I got for Christmas this year. I personally love watching and reading "What I got for Christmas" posts and really wanted to do one myself. However I am going to do the quick disclaimer that I'm not trying to brag about my presents. I was incredibly lucky this year! So I hope that you like this post and I would love to hear in the comments below what you got for Christmas or what your favourite part of Christmas was. xx

A very very lucky girl...

Katherine Penney Chic Beauty Christmas Presents Lucky Fashion Radio

In my family we usually have a main present at Christmas/birthdays. This was my main present from my parents. I've wanted this exact radio for years and it's just beautiful!

Katherine Penney Chic Beauty Christmas Presents Lucky Fashion Books

I asked for The Fault in Our Stars DVD and watched it with Jack (my boyfriend) the other day. Yes I still cried like a baby even though I've seen it before and knew what was going to happen. I also love getting books for Christmas as holidays are when I find the most time to sit down and read a book. I remember talking to my mum about wanting to read the book on the right ages ago and I can't believe she remembered. I actually finished We Were Liars the other day and thought it was a really good book. It's pretty short and an easy read but the story line and the twist at the end are very clever.

This eyeshadow palette was another thing that I had been talking about for ages. I used it the other night and I will be using it again tonight for New Years Eve. The colours are gorgeous and the palette itself is beautiful. 

Katherine Penney Chic Beauty Christmas Presents Lucky Fashion Jewellery

I also received some beautiful jewellery from my family. I think it just shows how well they know me really! Elephants are my favourite animal and I'm just obsessed with them at the moment. And I am in love with the beautiful blue colours in the earrings and bracelet. 

Katherine Penney Chic Beauty Christmas Presents Lucky Fashion Pretty Handbag

I've wanted a smaller satchel bag for ages and when I saw this beautiful 3 toned pink one I knew it was perfect. My mum for this for my and it's the only bag that I have used since. Although annoyingly I think it has now gone in to sale in Accessorize so you might be able to get your hands on it still for even cheaper!

Of course I got some beauty things! This Jack Wills lip balm is from my cousins and it smells amazing. And the lip balm set is a bit of an inside joke with my driving instructor! I can't start driving unless I've used some lip balm or my dry lips will distract me! It was so sweet of her to see this and think of me as I know she doesn't really get Christmas presents for her students. She is so lovely and we get on so well (and she has been trying to teach me for a while!). 

Katherine Penney Chic Beauty Christmas Presents Lucky Fashion Pretty Hat

This was another surprise chosen by my mum which I am obsessed with! She knows my style so well! I've worn this so much already and I just think it is so cute!

Katherine Penney Chic Beauty Christmas Presents Lucky Fashion Pretty Clothes

The jumper from Gap and the top from Zara I picked out myself and have worn them both already. And the Hollister waterfall cardigan is from my cousins and is the most amazing thing! It's so fluffy and feels like I am actually wearing a blanket. And as it has been so cold recently this is what I have been wearing most days!

Katherine Penney Chic Beauty Christmas Presents Lucky Fashion Pretty Food Chocolate

And of course I received loads and loads of chocolate!!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and have a great New Years Eve tonight. Love of love
