I hope you all have an amazing Christmas and a relaxing boxing day. As usual I didn’t sleep much the excitement is too much even at the age of 21 haha. Last Christmas was amazing, we got to spend it in sunny Australia on the beach and with Katie’s relative but it was super weird without out our close family and the Christmas jumpers. So this year It was good to spend it with family again. I’m writing this post in a form of gratitude for everyone and everything.
Katie’s sister Chloe and I have a lot in common so she knew exactly what to gift me. She gave me the blue chenille jumper and the eyeshadow palette which I’ve wanted for a while. The jumper is so incredibly soft! I love arts and crafts so Millie and Bill (Katie’s parents) gifted me the scented peacock craft paper along side with the Hamsa hand pouches that they bought in Morocco. They also gave each of use ‘young adults’ ( I can’t get away with saying kids anymore hehe) a mini metal game which took us a while to resolve. They also gave me blue slippers which I didn’t get a picture of because I’m wearing them. I love coffee and when I’m working I always want coffee but Costa is too expensive so one of Katie’s Nan Vi gifted me the lifeventure travel mug which keeps drinks hot/cold for hours!
I can’t live without rings but I always struggle to find silver rings that I like and actually fit me so that’s exactly what I got this Christmas. The ring on the left was a gift from Millie ( Katie’s mum) It’s a swarvoski ring that I had said I wanted. The ring on the right was gifted by Katie. I saw this ring in TKMaxx and fell in love with it so Katie went back and bought it for me, isn’t she cute!
On my 21st Birthday Katie gave me a Pandora bracelet and I thought it would be a great idea to make it a travel/gift bracelet. I really wanted the opera house for Australia and kiwi bird for New Zealand. Katie managed to find both for me and she also gave me the heart as an extra! The charms on the right were from my mum and brother, it’s a heart that says mothers love and Minnie mouse, I’m so happy I got all of these charms 😀
Of course there had to be chocolates at Christmas. These were gifted by a work colleague, Chloe’s boyfriend and Katie’s Nan’s. we got so much chocolate I tried fitting it all into one box as you can see haha.
And of course the smellies! My mum’s boyfriend Cristian gifted Katie and I DKNY perfumes which we both love! My best friend Michel and her sister Mileidy gifted me Victoria secret perfume, body shimmer and lotion, It came in an impressive box! Katie’s other Nan Hazel gave me Jack Wills body scrub, lotion, body wash and spray which also smells amazing. Last but not least my aunty gave me the pack of 4 bubble bath and shower gel collection.
Again thank you to everyone and to all my readers too!
What did you get for Christmas? Did you get anything similar to me? I’d love to see/hear all about it!
