Christmas Presents

We had a great family Christmas and it all seemed to be over so quickly after such a long build up.
Our daughter, Hannah, wanted some advanced photography equipment and couldn't wait to try it out so on Christmas afternoon she got me to pose by a floral decoration in a top which my husband bought for me.

Regular readers of my blog will not be surprised to see it is in my favourite colour, turquoise. It is slightly figure hugging but I am sure I will wear it a lot next summer.
We bought Hannah a white jumper and she let her father try out her new lenses yesterday and he took some photos of her wearing it. She has grown considerably taller during the past year and we are now nearly the same height. I forget that she will soon be 16 and is fast becoming an adult. 
The top came from M & S and has an interesting pattern below the shoulder line. She was really pleased with it and will wear it when we go out at weekends.

Did you get some lovely clothes as presents this year?


  1. Your lace top is beautiful! :) Your daughter is just as stylish as you too :) I got so many pretty new clothes and accessories for Christmas, I was really blessed. I got so many gift cards as well so I expect to have fun spending them over the next year! :)

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are having a great week! I'm enjoying that quiet lazy period between Christmas and New Years and relaxing a bit.

  4. Rebecca, that turquoise lace top is quite pretty. I am sure it will really make a stand out piece in warmer weather! I would pair it now though with some black velvet! Thanks so much for linking up with me. Wishing you all the best in the new year.
