What I Got For Christmas 2014

December 26, 2014
I hope you all had an amazing Christmas, or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa etc. My family and I had a great Christmas day! As every other fashion blogger/vlogger, I would like to share with you all what I got for Christmas! Disclaimer: This is not an attempt to brag, many people enjoy these types of posts.


The first thing I opened was this snow globe from my brother. A few weeks ago I saw it in Home Goods and commented that it would look great in my room! I love this snow globe because accompanies my room perfectly, and it's subtly festive!


This popular mug from Anthropologie was a gift from my sister, she knows that I've been wanting a special mug for a while now, and that I had my eye on this one.


This gift was totally unexpected, from my parents. My mom knows I'm trying to redecorate my room, and my color scheme is white and gold, so she got this for me from Home Goods.


As mentioned in my Holiday Wish List, I've been lusting over these earrings for a while now. I was ecstatic to open these, so much so that I wore them all day.


Last but not least, are these amazing riding boots. In my Holiday Wish List, they were the number one item I wanted. When I found out that "Santa" had left them under the tree I was overjoyed! 

I also received a few other stocking stuffers and gifts from my friends. I had a great Christmas this year, and I am so unbelievably grateful and appreciative of everything that I have. Hope you're having a great holiday season♥︎

Getting in the Holiday Spirit

December 22, 2014


I'm not sure about you all, but this year it was rough getting into the holiday spirit. It wasn't until about Friday that I finally got excited for Christmas! Now I'm full swing in the holiday mood, so I wanted to share with you the things I did to get excited!

1. Watch a TON of Christmas movies!
The Polar Express is my all-time favorite Christmas movie, I watch it every year, sometimes even 2 or 3 times! In the past week, I've watched what feels like every Xmas movie on Netflix, and I have 2 or 3 really good ones to recommend! Christmas with the Kranks, 12 Dates of Christmas, A Christmas Kiss, and Holidaze (I know, that's a lot of movies) are all great movies to watch with friends!

2. Decorating the Tree/Holiday DIY
Last week we decorated our Christmas tree, and it was nostalgic pulling out some of my favorite ornaments. We also tried a new DIY for our front door, instead of using a wreath.


3. Holiday Cooking
Every year my family makes a bag of treats for our teachers for the holidays, this year we made double ginger cookies, peppermint fudge, and chocolate & peanut butter acorns.


4. Holiday Themed Photos via Social Media
 Looking at all the Christmas-y photos on Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram adds a little bit of excitement to every day! Here are some of my favorites!

I hope you all enjoy this post and it helped get you into the holiday spirit if you weren't already there! Happy Holidays♥︎

Christmas Tree Shopping

This past Friday my family finally got our Christmas tree, and it was also the day that my school played our rival in basketball! It was a great game, not only because we won, but the theme was Christmas sweaters!

Sweater Weather

December 14, 2014



The other day it was rainy and wet, but I was wearing one of my favorite sweaters so I decided to take some pictures. I had to borrow my sister's rain boots, they matched my sweater so perfectly!
