christmas 2012

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful day, getting spoiled rotten and eating so much that you could have rolled home. I had some serious food coma's going on - Christmas and food just go hand in hand! On Christmas Eve I headed over to a family friends place for their Polish Christmas Eve, eating delicious Polish foods (meat free, of course) and getting ready for Santa's arrival. Christmas morning began at 8am sharp with the opening of presents and I absolutely scored this year! So grateful for everything I got.. Sigma make up brushes, Glasshouse candles, Sportsgirl shorts, Tony Bianco heels, $50 voucher for The Nail Lab, an assortment of make up, Samatha Wills earrings, Chloe perfume, a GORGEOUS new bedside lamp and Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses! I was absolutely ecstatic about everything I received - just couldn't believe my luck. But present opening was quickly over as we prepared for all 50 - yes 50 - of my family members to descend on our house for our Sri Lankan feast, which lasted well into the evening and finished with the traditional game of poker. But by then, I slowly slipped away.. ready to slide into my new bedsheets and fall straight to sleep. Christmas is one hell of a day, but I honest to god love every second of it! I'm such a sucker for tradition!

Glasshouse Christmas Collection - $40 - Glasshouse Limited Edition Christmas Candle - $42.95

Hi, I'm Chloe and I would like to confess that I am a legitimate, hardcore, one hundred percent committed Christmas fanatic. I can't quite explain why.. I don't know if it was the fact that my due date was Christmas Eve (I came a week early) and hence my birthday and christmas being so close have always made it an exciting time of year, or whether it was my mum's love of entertaining during December, or school holidays, or summer, or christmas carols.. or maybe a combination of all. For as long as I can remember, I have always loved Christmas and as soon as I see those decorations up in Westfield for the first time, or the glimpse of December 1st on the calendar, I get the most overwhelming sense of joy and happiness. Alongside the christmas pudding and ham and present purchasing comes another thing I adore about Christmas - limited edition Christmas products. This year I have been loving the L'Occitane and Glasshouse collections. L'Occitane have released two fragrant collections called Fleurs Merveilleuses and Feuilles Magiques and they smell divine. I love the shimmering body oil and the body milk - gave them both a test run on my birthday night out and my limbs were shimmering like christmas lights (someone help me, I have a problem..) For my birthday, I received the Glasshouse Limited Edition White Christmas Candle. It smells sweet and soothing and has a nice spicy hint of clove, and the fact that the candle itself is pink makes me just that little bit happier. The Christmas Collection is also a seriously good gift - three miniature glasshouse candles in a beautiful box, packaged up and ready to go. If you're as obsessed with Christmas as I am, you've probably already dived in amongst these. If you haven't, get on board grinch! Merry Christmas!
