Friday Favourites: Christmas Presents
Hello friends and Happy Friday!
It seems as though the week after Christmas always flies by and it is the new year before we know it…
I really have no plans for new years. I am not much of a “new years person”(if that’s a type of person – I’m not sure, but you get what I mean).
Last year I went out with a few friends, but for many years before last I spent new years with my parents at home watching movies
Nothing wrong with a quiet evening at home!
This year, I can see my parents and I doing our usual routine:
Have a nice dinner (maybe make something new out of one of my many new cookbooks that I received from Christmas?) and watch a movie (again, watch one of the new movies I received for Christmas) or play some games, have a few friends over for appetizers and drinks, and ring in the new year
Other than trying to figure out what my plan is for New Years Eve, I have been spending a ton of time on my new iPad.
I quite seriously think I am obsessed.
An iPad wasn’t even on my Christmas list, but I sure am loving it However, there were many other gifts that I received for Christmas which created even more new obsessions for me. So, without further ado, here are some of my favourite things as of lately!
Crackle Nail Polish
I have been wanting to try out crackle nail polish for quite some time now. I usually don’t buy products right when they hit stores. I’m more of the type to wait until all the hype settles and then I pounce So, I am a little behind on the whole crackle nail polish excitement, but seriously, this stuff is quite amazing.
First, I painted my nails a beautiful purplish greyish colour and then used my silver crackle polish over top and this was the result! I am obsessed (and love the colour combination!)
I bought a circle scarf earlier this fall with my gift card from Gap. I fell in love.
For Christmas I received two more circle scarves and have been wearing them on a daily basis
I pretty much received an entire new wardrobe of Lululemon clothing…
There’s a story behind the top pictured in the top right on the couch (and below), though…
Two years ago, I was in Kelowna for a wedding and stayed at a hotel with my parents. Obviously while I was in Kelowna I hit up the Lululemon (seeing as how Saskatchewan only has one and it is located an unnecessary three plus hours away from me) Anyways, I found the exact top shown above, bought it, and was so excited to wear it the next day; however, that never happened. While we were out for dinner, someone stole my new Lululemon top! I blame the maid – who else would be in our hotel room? Ever since then (a whole two years), I have been in search for this top. Not once have a seen this top at the Lululemon we have in London, so I have never had the opportunity to buy it. But, my Mom gave me a huge surprise when I opened this on Christmas morning She finally found the top I have been searching for!
I have already discussed my obsession with bowls So there’s nothing really to say about these gifts other than I got five wonderful bowls for Christmas!
(This bowl came with two larger sizes!)
This bowl will be perfect with my soup!
I had no idea I would love a hair accessory this much! My Aunt sent me this for Christmas and I love it. I wore it three days in a row. It makes me feel so pretty
(Notice I am wearing one of my circle scarves! Obsessed!)
