Last week I posted my Christmas wishlist using M&Co's Christmas Fashion Collection and went and entered myself into their All I Want For Christmas Wishlist competition. Now I've entered a few competitions since starting this blog and I would consider myself very unlucky so obviously I expected to hear nothing back. That was before I had a little notification on my Twitter feed that M&Co had announced that I was their winner! As this was my first competition win, being excited was a major understatement! As soon as I finished work, I raced home to claim my prize and order my wishlist.
Now my winning wishlist is a little different to the actual wishlist that I've ordered as a lot of the things I originally picked out didn't have my size or become out of stock completely so I had to end up picking other things instead. I missed out my gingerbread man jumper! :( SO gutted! I actually think I did a lot better with my new wishlist though and I'm very excited for it to come!
Like I said, I missed out on a few chances to get certain things so I tried to make as many subitutes as possible. Instead of the original check pyjamas that I picked, I went for the floral ones which in a way I kinda prefer as they're more girly. I did also treat myself to a cute fleecy reindeer pyjama set with the matching slippers (which were in my original wishlist).
Instead of the floral socks, when I was searching the M&Co website I saw these adorable cat socks which of course I had to have! I did also see these Santa socks which I thought were so adorable and although I'd only be able to wear them for a week times a year, they needed to be brought.
On my previous wishlist, I had a gorgeous sequin lace dress but I didn't realise that it was in the petite range which unforunately is not me. Sigh! I did however find this simple black skater dress which I loved. Who can resist a classic LBD? As well as the dress, I also picked up these high waisted skinny jeans as I've wanted to try a pair for such a long time and for only £14 I couldn't resist! What a bargain! Another fashion craze I've always wanted to try was printed trousers and I thought while I had the chance, I would take it and order myself a pair! I love the print as it's very pretty and "not in your face" and cheap looking like some others I've seen.
To finish off my order, a lot of their jewellery was on sale so I managed to pick up on a few little goodies. I've got a very similar necklace to the layered necklace but since it was £5, I couldn't resist as you can never have enough necklaces! I also managed to pick up these three pairs of cute stud earrings for only £3.50. I love wearing stud earrings and I have quite a collection of them so these will be a nice little addition. As I was coming to my last £2.00 on my voucher, I used it buying this cute bow necklace which I think is adorable and a bargain for only £2.00!
Shop my wishlist!
Thank you again M&Co!
