#GirlPower Gift Guide

THIS IS NOT A DRILL: It’s officially 11 weeks til Christmas.

Would you bloody believe it?! It only feels like summer has just ended, and xmas is only right around the corner. I’m not mad about it tho, I’ve definitely become more of a Christmas gal since I started blogging. Goodbye to the bah humbug Holly, hello to the girl with the aptly given name. Since there will be (note: understatement) lots of Christmas themed posts coming soon, I thought I’d kick it off with a lil girly gift guide. 

The Present Finder sent me over some really cute bit n’ bobs inspired by the new Bridget Jones Baby movie that’s out now, and they’re just purrrfect inspiration for any occasion. I have yet to see the film, simply because juggling around a bunch of young women’s diaries to pop to the cinema is a lot harder than it seems. Nevertheless, I’ve been loving these girly lil prezzies!

The Present Finder – Good Day Bad Day Wine Glass*
Etched – Personalised Vodka Bottle*

This wine glass speaks to me, guys n gals. Not only is it tongue-in-cheek funny, but it’s (shamelessly) true too. This is definitely a winner for hard working mums or colleges, or just someone who generally enjoys the vino. I have mine displayed in my blogging room *oooh, sneak peek…* with my personalised bottle of vod from Etched. I’m not the biggest wine drinker going, but I’ve been enjoying using it for my cheeky vodka & lemonades at the end of a long, hard day at uni.

The Present Finder – Wide Angle Selfie Lens*

Uhhhh, if you use your phone to take selfies and you don’t have one of these bad boys, you really are missing out – but I don’t blame you though! I always post selfies on social media (guilty), I never thought of getting a lens for my phone camera.

Yessss every blogger and her mum now has a compact or DSLR camera with fancy lenses to switch up their snaps, but I have to rely on my good old iPhone 6 cam to shoot everything from blog photos, to FB profile pics. I’ve always struggled to get a good angle and a wide enough shot as I have such a tiny arm span (5ft club, y’all), and this solves all of my problems.

If you have a m8 or perhaps a sister who loves the selfie life, this is definitely a contender for best secret santa prezzie or stocking filler!

The Present Finder – Speech Bubble Light Up Box*
Truffle Shuffle – Retro Light Box*

This is a litttttle bit of a sneak peek for you guys as I’m currently still in the middle of setting up my new blogging room in the apartment. However, it’s going really well and I’m having fun finding loads of little bits and pieces to really make the place my inspirational blogging space. Naturally a few light boxes sprung to mind, as you can’t scroll down on IG without spotting a few! 

The Retro Light Box* is a beauty bloggers’ classic accessory, and I decided to pop my blog name in the box to make the room more personalised! I’ve seen people put in cute little couple’s names or even quotes. This one takes batteries so you can leave it on for as long as you like and it wont eat away at your electricity bill (#studentlyf).

The Speech Bubble Light Box* is the cutest thing as it’s completely personalizable, you can sketch something out or practice your calligraphy if you fancy it. I haven’t been able to demonstrate on here I’m afraid as the whiteboard pen got lost in transit to our new home, however I have ordered a set of multicoloured pens so I can really add some colour and personality to the room.

What has made it onto your wishlist or gift guide for Christmas 2016?
