This year, like every year, I was very blessed to have received so many awesome gifts from my family and best friend. I traveled to Michigan for the holidays and was able to spend a lot of time with my loved ones. I was in Kalamazoo on Christmas Eve with my step-dad’s family, I spent Christmas day with my parents and little sisters, and the following days I got to see my aunt, uncle, cousin, grandma, and friends. Everyone who I gift exchanged with got me the best stuff!
Shake It Like A Polaroid Picture
So I already had an Intax Mini Polaroid Camera, but it broke! I really wanted a new one and my parents came through. I’m super excited because my old one was a white “7” and now I have the ice blue “9,” which has a front mirror and takes better quality images. I also got some film for it, a white case (which I already bedazzled), and a few cute picture displays.
My best friend got me a selfie light for my phone! I’ve wanted one for so long and I’ve been using it pretty much every day since I opened it. From my parents I also got a pink phone cord, pop socket, and selfie stick.
Fresh, Clean, & Cozy
You can never go wrong with bath and body products! Or cozy socks. My family always comes through when it comes to the cutest necessities. I got knee socks, perfume, lotions, hand sanitizers, lip balms, a compact mirror, a cheetah print contact case, and an emergency beauty kit.
Home Sweet Home
One of my aunts got me this adorable Michigan cup! It’s so colorful and I can show some hometown love when I use it in NYC. It can be used for wine, coffee, or pretty much anything.
Everyone who I’m close to knows that I love Marilyn Monroe. I get it from my Aunt Misty because she collected Marliyn Monroe trinkets when I was growing up. My mommy got me this cute T-shirt and a mini planner, which I’ll probably put at my desk at work.
I have been dying to get some Fenty Beauty foundation, so while I was Christmas shopping with my mom she let me pick some out. I’m so excited to try it! I’ll most likley do a Fenty “first impressions” post. I also got this awesome set of Benefit products! I’ve loved that brand for a while, check out a previous post I did on them here.
I always love my accessories! My aunt and grandma got me some sassy earrings (shop the handmade statement earrings at Brandy Bell Design) and a really cute bracelet.
New Year, New Me
I got basically my dream planner set. I picked it out from Ban.do, but shoutout to my parents for ordering it. The set included a planner, wall calendar, gel pens, and washy tape. My other family members also got me an adorable set of journals.
Lastly, I got some candy in my stocking. But the cutest thing was the little basketball ornament that my baby sister picked out for me all on her own. I used to play basketball in high school and it’s still my favorite sport to watch.
Thank you so much everyone!!!
