Christmas Presents 2013

Happy Monday!

Today I'll be sharing Christmas presents I got this year!
I absolutely love watching YouTube videos on "Christmas Hauls", so instead of doing a video, I thought I would do a blog post. :) 

I am not bragging in any way, and I'm so thankful for everything I got, I just thought it would be fun to do!
(Warning: there is a lot of pictures)

The fiance surprised me with Ciate mini nail polish ornament set. 
I think he knew I enjoyed the Advent nail polish set so much, he knew he couldn't go wrong with this set. Haha

There are so many cute names and colors to this set I can't wait to start using it. I saved the ornaments with all my Christmas stuff so I can do some fun DIY's next year with them! I love clear/plain ornaments!

My mom picked up this adorable Yankee Candle owl tea light candle holder from Kohls. I'm loving all things owls right now! 

Both my parents chipped in a bought me the Hourglass ambient lighting powder AND brush (I was not expecting the brush from them!) I've been hearing so many good reviews on it I thought I would give it a try. It's such a shame it's SO expensive. I will do a review in the future. 

I had a coupon for Ulta for 20% off your ENTIRE purchase so the fiance said I could pick out things I wanted for Christmas. He may have regretted saying that after he saw how much I picked out. Hahaha.

While everyone and their mother got the Naked 3 palette for Christmas I opted for the Naked illuminated blush. I think this will be perfect to give my dull face that extra POP, and during the summer time when I have a little bit of a tan. I will also review this at a later point.

My mom also picked up these two adorable bracelets for me for Christmas as well. How cute is that snowman bracelet?!?!

Another surprise from the fiance - the Formula X Twenty Two collection. I have yet to try out the Formula X, but with this set, I think I am set. Haha. 

This was another set I picked up from Ulta when we went shopping together. I really just wanted the white textured nail polish, but I did like that other colors and plus it was on sale for $9.99; it was cheaper that way than buying individually. The textured nail polish is supposed to look like snow, so I will do a review on that as well.

Gifts from my two best friends

One of my best friends made me all of these items - HOW ADORABLE?!
She made me this sugar scrub that is in the jar, and I believe it's the best sugar scrub I ever used. I've been using it once a week and it smells like lemons - I feel so fresh after I use it, not to mention my skin is SO soft!

My other best friend made this candle from a YouTube video. I haven't burned it yet, it's too pretty to burn it!

I was surprised with two big things this year, and these are one of them! Tory Burch Reva flats, I've worn them dozens of times since I got them! They are SO comfortable. 

Christmas eve my fiance's family & I exchange gifts. It's always so much fun with his two cats and Pekingese pup!
 His brother bought me some cute things from Bath & Body Works!

My last big surprise was the Ugg Genevieve!
They are super warm and super comfortable. I love them because they actually go up to my knee, compared to the other "Tall" boots that go mid-calf. The bow isn't a bad touch either. Hehe ;)

As you can tell they're already dirty from wearing them. 

What did you get good for Christmas?!

Although this post is 2 years old it's still fantastic to look at. Great haul! Love your Tory flats, aren't they great! I have the same ones;

Hope your Christmas was good this year. All the best in 2016.
