Penhaligon's Bluebell perfume ~ Tan leather bag (shop in Barcelona) ~ Chanel Paradoxal nail enamel ~ Fuji Instax camera ~ Tea Strainer (Luponde Tea, Burlington Arcade, London) ~ Ladurée Marie Antoinette Tea & Salted Butter Caramel ~ Plümo Jewel Shoes ~ Pocket mirror (Secrets of a Butterfly) ~ The Selby book ~ Magazine rack (shop in Harrogate) ~ H&M grey wool mittens ~ Zara dress

Due to unforseen circumstances, this year our Christmas didn't happen until several days later. It did however, make opening the presents that little bit more special, so I picked out the most photogenic gifts to photograph.

  2. Wow - you got some absolutely amazing gift! I must say I am very jealous of that camera (I really want one!) and those shoes (oh, and the bag!) are absolutely to die for! x

  3. How spoiled you've been !!!!
    I had 3 presents this year...

    Is it the "Marie-Antoinette"'s tea from Ladurée?
    Too late to send it to you in my surprises gifts :/

    I'm glad you received many pretty things, I adore the gloves and my mom just had the same Chanel enamel, by a friend of her ;)

    Bisous & Bonne année 2011 !!

  9. I was eyeing up that camera when I was in the US. It's such a cool thing but we ended up getting the burnt edge Holga to add to our collection of Lomo cameras. I must remember to get those prints scanned!!

    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas! I love those shoes, beautiful.

  21. Bluebell is one of my favourite scents! I've been wearing it for years. (In North America it's really hard to come by - I order it from Penhaligon - so it makes it seem even more special.)

    Happy New Year!

  22. Glad you got to celebrate christmas properly in the end, it looks like you had some lovely goodies!
    I'm so tempted with the instant camera - are you impressed with it?

  26. Oh, what beautiful presents! I am beyond jealous of the Laduree salted butter caramel - very tempted to get some next time I'm in London, although may not be wise, I'd probably just attack it with a spoon! I hope you've had a lovely Christmas and wish you a fantastic 2011. x

  30. sacramento - i'm so sorry, i am unable to remove the word verification as it alters the settings for some reason!

    rain-beau - i think it was from amazon

    danni & maria - i haven't had a proper play with it yet. it does seem more difficult than it looks getting the angle right but i'm looking forward to trying. also, the film is quite expensive, so i guess i'll use it for special occasion pics

    becky - i would definitely recommend the selby book, if you like the site, you'll love the book!

  31. Looks like you got some lovely stuff! And the shoes and bag are so pretty.

    Happy new year!
