Welcome back everyone! I hope you had a great holiday with friends in family! My Christmas was pretty hectic but now that it's subsided I can finally sit down and talk to you all about what I got this year. Christmas Eve in our family is when the gift-giving starts. We do a gift exchange game and open up one gift. For the exchange game I got a pair of socks and a string of Christmas lights that's actually a phone charger. The gift that all the kids get is matching pajamas and a Christmas-themed book. You can see everything I got in my newest YouTube video.
Christmas Day was both busy and chill at the same time. Everyone was up by 9:30 or 10:00 so we were able to get going earlier. I'm the youngest so I got to start the unwrapping. In the end, here's what I finished with:
Makeup Organizer: This was very much appreciated! I got on off Amazon earlier in the year but I've accumulated so much that I needed a new one already.
Pajamas: I'm a sucker for pajamas and comfy clothes so I can always count on one or two new outfits. In this case, another pair of pajamas.
Sweater and Sweatpants: Like I said, I love soft things and I got exactly what I needed in that department. Sweatpants that are really warm and a new sweater that's all fuzzy and soft. Nothing like braving winter in style!
Starbucks Cup: I've determined that I have a water bottle addiction because this new cup makes my collection a grand total of six. I'm thinking I'll stop here because The Starbucks cup I got is a glittery version so it seems like a fitting end.
Makeup Organizer: I got another makeup organizer! I'm telling you, these were necessary for my sanity. Things were just piling up everywhere so I needed new storage option. This one is tall and spins like a Lazy Susan.
Blanket: I got another fuzzy and soft thing. A new blanket! Blankets are one of my favorite things because they're not only cozy but they're really fun, simple decorative pieces.
Bed Set: The last time I got a new bed set was my 12th birthday. I absolutely loved it. However, it was losing it's appeal to me and I just needed something fresh and a little more grown up. This one comes with a reversible comforter. One side is blue with white circles and the other is all white with black flower stitching. It also came with two pillow cases with the same two sided patterns as well as two throw pillows. I love!
Face Mask: This gift is kind of a tradition almost. MJ always gets us face masks and they're always nice ones. This year I got a hydrating mask.
Keychain: One thing I collect constantly: keychains. They're really cool and it's nice to look back on the memories associated with them. My newest addition is a Leo keychain which is my birth sign.
Gift Cards: Take me on a shopping spree any day and I'll be happy but take me on a book shopping spree? I'll throw a party. I got not one but three $10.00 gift cards to Barnes and Noble. That's $30.00 all for books. I'm in heaven.
Socks: I got another pair of socks! This is another favorite not just because they're soft and warm but the circulation to my lower legs and feet is really bad. To keep them regulated, I have to wear really thick socks, even in the summer.
New Phone: I went from an iPhone 7 to an iPhone 11 so fast. The three of our phones were slowly ceasing to work because they were getting older. We all needed new ones but none of us were expecting any because our plans weren't up yet. Then, all of a sudden, there we were unwrapping them!
Stocking Gifts: This year's stocking had chocolate, fake nails, and a budget book inside. I was a little overly excited about the budget book but that's besides the point.
There's my haul! This holiday season was a fun one! I just posted a brand new YouTube video that's also on here under the "YouTube". tab so go check it out for a visual look at all of this.
Happy Holidays and New Year!
