I'm not sure how this constitutes as a "Mommy Monday" post but I suppose it relates to me...and I am a mom...see how I made that work? Yes very creative, I know! I got a lot of requests when I asked on Twitter what kind of a video you wanted to see from me to do a "What I Got for Christmas" post so here's what I got! I should add that this does not include any other gifts from my extended family as this was our first year spent by ourselves and we haven't exchanged presents yet. So this is what I got from Jonathan/Santa and myself ;)
First up was my MacBook Air complete with a pink skin. I love this!! This was my big present from Jonathan as my old laptop's screen was smashed and he knows that one of my goals for the year is to do a lot more with my blog. I needed something light, portable and easy to use. This is the 13" MacBook Air with a Tech21 Impact Snap Case in Pink.
Next up was my grey pencil skirt with a silver zip detail from Michael Kors. I got this as part of my Christmas outfit which, if you've been keeping up with my blog over December you will have seen me wear in this post. I bought this with the intention of it becoming a staple in my wardrobe as I feel like it's something I can wear over & over with different shirts/blouses/jumpers and it could be quite versatile.
The other item I got was a blueish grey oversized jumper with a metallic thread running through it from By Malene Birger. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece that I'm so excited about...it's such a cosy jumper that you can dress up or down and style lots of ways, either casual with jeans & boots or glammed up with a shirt & pencil skirt like how I wore it on Christmas Day.
Last but not least is my black winter coat from Reiss which I dedicated an entire blog post to last week! This was definitely an investment buy but I tend to keep quality items in my wardrobe for years & years so I think it was worth it. It's a timeless, collarless coat in a classic colour with hidden buttons which makes it very streamlined & understated so you can pair it with anything!
I love it.
Here is the video I filmed on what I got for Christmas if you guys would like to watch! From now on I am going to be uploading weekly videos on my channel every Monday at 7pm, so stay tuned!
