What I Got For Christmas 2014
Well this is late, huh? I’m here with my What I Got For Christmas post and I still wanted to show you what I got and show off some bits I got for my family. I also wanted to let you know why this is late but if you didn’t know I left my DSLR camera charger on vacation at my cousin’s house and I had only one battery left and I used it on New Years Eve and then I didn’t want to use the camera anymore as I might need it for photography class. Luckily I got it shipped to me and as soon as I got to charge all the batteries I went photo crazy and started off with this. So as I was away for the actual Christmas day I didn’t do gifts and just celebrated with food and my cousin’s family. I did not mind and still enjoyed. But when I got back and all my family got together again since New Years Eve is such a huge celebration and that was the time we decide to do our gift giving and got our presents. After midnight and after we feasted on so much food we opened our table full of gifts and I will be doing a Sunday Summaries post about more in detail. Now let’s see in detail what I got.
First off is what was in my stocking. So in it was a lot of beauty things and my family really is getting a hang of what I’ve been wanting lately. I was so happy with what I got and I cannot wait to play with the goodies and you cannot tell how excited I am to paint my nails!
So in detail I got a few nail goodies because I really wanted to be more creative with my nails and do some designs and nail art. Now such as Klik Nail Art Glitters and I love glitter so this is perfect. Next off are some Etude House makeup bits so I got an Etude House Eyeshadow in Look at My Eyes Cafe and also the Etude House Dear My Lipstick in PK009 which is the most gorgeous pink and I am so in love with this lippie that i am slightly obsessed with it. Another lipstick that was in there was this lipstick that didn’t have a specific brand name but it is in the shade Apple of My Eye Lipstick. It is a lovely red and smells like apples and I love sniffing it.
Can I just say how I love how coordinated the nail polishes colors are? I think it was so cute and lovely for New Years too. First off that caught my eye was the OMG 12 Pcs.Professional Nail Art Brush Set and this will help me tremendously with designs and totally gave me inspiration to do more. And now for all the nail polishes, first is OMG Nail Lacquer in Champagne which is so pretty and I have nothing like it yet. Then we have OMG Nail Lacquer in Gold Digger which is quite a funny name and I love the metallic gold. After that is the OMG Nail Lacquer in Gold Dust which is a gold sparkly top coat perfect to put over it. Now the silvers there is the OMG Nail Lacquer in Stiletto which is a metallic silver and lastly there is the OMG Nail Lacquer in Shooting Star which is a perfect name and it looks a lot like Stiletto but with sparkles but I love it none the less. That was everything in my stocking besides some headphones and those pretty ties to wrap around your iPhone charger which is definitely will help.
Home and some Bits & Bobs
For presents I got from my family, I did get a lot of fun home bits and just cute gifts that are really sweet and thoughtful. From my aunt I kind of hinted to her a few weeks ago that since I was collecting more jewelry I wanted a jewelry holder so she ended up getting me a Ballerina Necklace Holder and I love it and she said it reminded me of a ballerina and it reminded her of me. Also to match that is a Hippo Ring Trinket to put some rings and earrings as well. Next I got a cup from a niece and love the color and since I didn’t have a proper mug for my hot beverages I got this Pink Coffee Mug and now I will be enjoying some yummy drinks with this. From my cousin who is only 8 years old she got me this fur wallet and bought it with her own money and picked it out herself so it was very sweet getting this Furry Coin Purse and I think it is so cute and I always need a wallet so this was nice to get. Another gift I got was a Celine Clutch in Mustard from my cousin who lives quite far away and is usually always busy working but she made the effort and got me this and it is the perfect size. The last present I got was from Lynn, my cousin who goes to all the beauty events with me and takes my outfit pictures, and her gift to me was Christmas Pajamas and I love them and cannot wait to wear them. There was a funny story about these and they make it even more special.
As for my main present that my dad and mom got me was a Pink Makeup Train-case. It is so pretty and since I was taking my 4 tiny makeup bags to my class and struggling carrying it all around I suggested to them to get this for me and it was also in my Christmas Wish List post. My favorite color is pink so this was perfect for me and it is just the right size as it isn’t too big or too small and I cannot wait to load it up with my makeup. If you want me to do a blog post or maybe even a video later on with what’s inside my train-case I’d love to do one when I get more makeup too and it’s all organized. I am so grateful for this gift and love it so thanks dad and mom!
That’s everything I got for Christmas and again sorry everyone it is late but I really wanted to put my own version out there as I enjoyed reading some of my favorite bloggers posts. I also didn’t really disclaim that I am not bragging because I thought these are just small gifts and I wanted to show you what my family got me and how much they know me. I loved everything and they were such great gifts. I hope you liked this post and send me your “What I Got For Christmas” posts as I still love reading them and if you did yours late to please let me know so it makes me feel better. I’m doing the Sunday Summaries tomorrow and show you my holidays and a chatty post in relation to this so stay tune for that one.
What was your favorite gift that wasn’t beauty related?
