What I Got For Christmas 2017
This post was originally supposed to go up back in December as one of my Blogmas posts but due to the fact that I didn’t continue, I’d like to post it before February arrives at least lol.
Christmas wasn’t very eventful, I was alone until later that night and was pretty annoyed. Things didn’t go as planned but I was able to visit my sisters, have dinner, and meet up with my dad. It was nice seeing them since I don’t get to that often. I didn’t expect any gifts, and I wasn’t able to get anyone anything this time around but I know that’s not the meaning of Christmas anyway. Everyone had a wonderful time catching up, enjoying the holiday with family and that’s all that mattered.
Now let’s open some gifts☺️
The first gift I received, from one of my sisters (I have 3) is a set of body creams from Bath & Body Works. You can never go wrong with Bath & Bodyworks, in my opinion, it’s one of my favorite places to shop for gifts and I’m sure it’s a favorite for others as well. I couldn’t pick a favorite between the two, I like them both. They each have a light scent, At The Beach definitely reminds me of summer. I LOVE the design on Hello Beautiful it’s a lot prettier in person, and like the design, the scent is a bit floral. Okay, this is not a review…
Another gift I received from another sister… L.A. Colors Fabu Lips 14 piece set. 14! It comes with 4 lip glosses, 3 matte lip colors, 2 jelly lip shines, and a tutorial booklet that I may or may not use. I’m not that into makeup, I only wear lipstick for the most part and my sister knows that so this is perfect for me. I can’t wait to try them out.
I also got these really cute journals but I picked them up myself. You all know I can’t pass up journals to add to my collection.
My dad gave me $40, he usually does give me a little money or a gift card so I guess I did expect that. I bought myself 2 poetry books that I love so much already. I went to Barnes & Noble and there were just so many books I wanted to pick up, I’ll have to go back soon! Rupi Kaur’s The Sun And Her Flowers was on my Christmas wishlist. Some of you may know that Jhene Aiko is one of my favorite singers so it’s no surprise that I had to grab her first book, 2Fish. She is a Pisces (like myself) if you are wondering what kind of title that is lol but that’s not what the book is about if you were also wondering. Both poetry books have a collection of different poems and short stories, they even include little illustrations, which I really like. 2Fish also includes copies from Jhene’s actual notebooks. I’ve mentioned working on my own… I am more inspired now than ever.
Oblivion is one of Jhene’s songs from her new album Trip if you’re interested in listening click here.
I also got a few tops and accessories for Christmas that I just didn’t take pictures of. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Sorry if this post is messed up, I am on the mobile app and it’s really frustrating trying to fix the problem…
