Since Christmas just passed and I got so many great gifts, I decided I would show some of favorites! It was really hard to choose just a few but these are what I chose to post about!
(Beware…this is a very long post)
Clothing and Accessories
My boyfriend got me these gorgeous earrings from Kate Spade. I LOVE earrings and Kate Spade so I was SOOO excited to see these! Aren’t they just darling? I love how sparkly they are!
#2 and #3
He also got me these pretty statement earrings from Charming Charlie’s! I really like how detailed both pairs are and how dainty but big the rose gold ones are.
My boyfriend also got me this adorable plaid, monogrammed scarf! It is red and black and I obviously love it because my monogram is on it haha!
I got a J Crew Herringbone vest from my mom and dad. I was sooo excited when I opened this because I have been dying to get one of these! It is super comfy and lightweight but keeps you nice and warm. This one is actually on sale right now on the J Crew Factory website!
I really needed a pair of brown riding boots because I only have black, so I also got this pair from Target.
This might just be my favorite gift I got out of everything this year!! Sebastian, my boyfriend, also got me this Kate Spade purse and of course I screamed when I opened the box. It is a super cute tote and is black + cream/white. It has a pink interior with a few pockets and is a great size to hold all of my necessities like my planner, sketchbook, makeup bag, wallet and water bottle!
I also got this super cute water bottle in my stocking this year. It is a nice size, says “FABULOUS” in gold lettering on the side, and is from Francesca’s! I’ve been using it the last few days and it does a very good job of keeping everything cold.
Since I am really into lettering, this gift was something that I had really been eyeing for a while now. I got a 96 back of Tombow USA dual brush pens and let me just say…THESE ARE AMAZING. They glide so smoothly and I am still working on my technique, but they are sooo pigmented and easy to work with! I don’t think I have ever been more pleased with a set of markers/pens before!
What I Got With My Gift Cards + Money
I generally get lots of gift cards and some cash at Christmas as well, so I went out the other day and spent a few. This is what I got:
So y’all…I have like a serious problem when it comes to Sephora haha. I had to control myself a little when I walked in so I can try and make the gift cards I got last for a while.
The first thing I bought was this mini eyeshadow palette from Dior. It has 5 very neutral and natural shades and as you can see, I already started using it haha! Its size makes it great to just throw in your purse and I really like it so far.
My eyebrows have been needing some tidying up lately so I also bought one of Benefit’s eyebrow products. This one is called “Brow Zam!” and I got it in the shade #5. So far, I really like it and the little microfibers in the product make my it look really natural!
The last thing I purchased is one of Too Faced’s blushes. This one is a light, natural tone and it is called Baby Love. I also really like this product so far and everything from Too Faced is just so cute! I mean, just look at the little design in the pan!
I also got some cash so of course I had to go to Lush!
Look at how cute and colorful all of the products are 🙂
The first product I purchased was the bath bomb. It is called “Avobath” and it smells like avocado and lemongrass. I actually used this one last night and I really loved it! The smell was really soothing and the color was nice and bright.
The next product I purchased was this bubble bar. I immediately thought of Lilly Pulitzer because of it being a pink flamingo and I just thing it is absolutely adorable! It is called “Pink Flamingo” and smells like rosewood and other sweet things.
The next thing I bought was one of Lush’s luxury bath oils. This one is called “Razzle Dazzle” and smells like raspberry. I really like how pink and sparkly it is and the sweet scent!
The last thing I bought was this precious little blue robot bath bomb! As you can see, my bath oil kind of got all over the poor little robot and now it is no longer just blue, but it is still super adorable! It is called “Ickle Baby Bot” and it smells like Lavender so it is really good for a bath right before bed.
Wow that was a really long post…haha! But anyways, I hope you enjoyed this post and come back for more. Thank you for reading!
