What I Received for Christmas 2016

While I truly love giving gifts for the holidays, I wouldn't be human if I did not love receiving gifts as well. This year, I was truly blessed and got a lot of things I wanted and did not know I wanted! From items that assist my blogging/vlogging lifestyle to fun knick-knacks, I truly am grateful for every gift I received this year.

I hope that the rose gold and marble trend continues into 2017 as I absolutely wanted this case and now have it! This case, from Redbubble, is everything I love! I also love how it looks in photos. Sadly, my old phone case was Vera Bradley style of Mickey and Minnie and it was very, very scratched and breaking in areas. With a much needed new case, I am so happy I got this from one of my two sisters!

Steven got me this Mickey Mouse bottle stopper and I absolutely love it! I cannot wait to put it into a bottle of wine that I am saving the rest for later (mind you, this is very rare that I actually save some! Just kidding! 😉)

If you remember my All I Want for Christmas blogmas post, I really wanted red rainboots! AND I GOT THEM! Eeekkkk! I love them so much. They fit perfectly and will go great with leggings and dark wash jeans. I also cannot wait to wear them in the snow! Again, one of my sisters got these for me.

And the other pair of shoes I said I wanted? Black over-the-knee boots and, again, I got them! (My sisters spoiled me!) I absolutely love these boots. I wore them to the mall today and they were so comfy. My sister ordered them from Charlotte Russe and I plan to rock them on New Year's Eve!

Something I did not ask for but am so glad that my little sister thought of is a large DSLR stabilizer to hold. I love the counter-weight on it and it is an amazing idea.

With my love of Disney, Steven couldn't resist getting me a Pop! Funko figure. With Belle as one of my favorite princesses, I absolutely adore this little knick-knack and cannot wait to unbox it and place it on my shelf!

Continuing my love for Disney, Steven also got me an Adventure Book scrapbook! I. AM. IN. LOVE. WITH. IT! It looks just like the one from the movie Up! and even has the adorable house and "Paradise Falls" on the back. It is really great quality and a wonderful idea. Plus, he told me it is to document our adventures together... swoon.

Combining my love of wine and Disney, Steven got me a wine glass that says, "I wine because I'm not at Disney." How true is that?! It is the perfect size and such a cute glass from Etsy. I can't wait to use it!

My friend, Amanda, got me this wonderful plush throw! And--continuing the theme here--it is wine-related! It has bottle openers, wine bottles, glasses full and empty, and corks. Plus, it is so pretty and very soft!

She also got me this cute ornament that says, "I just rescued some wine. It was trapped in a bottle." I laughed so hard when I read it!

One of my sisters also gave me this mug that says, "Warning, at any time I may snap." Which is so true if I haven't had my morning coffee yet or in reference to photography and blogging!

My older sister got me this NYX Wanderlust London Lip & Eye Collection kit. I love the colors and I cannot wait to use them! Plus, she knows that I am obsessed with NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. They are just so wonderful in color pigment and in how long they stay on.

Last, but certainly not least, I received a 2017 planner from Katie at Synderellax. She is such a wonderful blogger and college friend! I absolutely love the design as all of the months are in the front together and all of the weekly spreads are in the back together. In addition, as she suggested, it is purely for planning Internet managing such as blogging, vlogging, and social media. As you can see, I already decorated January some with washi tape and quotes.

Not pictured (because I have been using the gifts and they were all over my room and bag haha) that I wanted to mention:

  • My friend, Brianna, got me a candle that smells like breakfast! It's called Champagne Toast.
  • Alyssa, also a college friend, gave me a Minnie Mouse Alex & Ani bracelet and I about drowned in joy. She also gave me a Starbucks gift card... because she likes to feed my addiction of over-priced drinks, and a voucher to see the live-action Beauty and the Beast when it comes out!
  • My parents gave me a heated timer plush blanket since my room can get so chilly.
  • A large black bag like on my All I Want for Christmas list from my sister to use at my new job.
  • Two sets of wine glasses that say, "Partners in Wine" from my parents.
  • A rose gold necklace from Steven that has chemical symbols that means wine. (Never even heard of such a thing and I loveeee it!)
  • A Primark gift card from my parents... who also like to feed my addictions to that store.
  • (And I feel like I am forgetting something... crap. I will add it when I remember.)
I am also exchanging gifts with my friends Brittany and Claudia in January so I am sure I will want to discuss those as well when it happens.

Thank you to everyone who gave me a gift or wished me a happy holiday this year! I am so appreciative of your kindness and am lucky to have you in my life.

Thank you for reading!
