What I got for Christmas 2017

I know this is a bit late but I finally got some time after dealing with a basement flood to sit down and write. This year my family and I celebrated Christmas at our cottage which was lovely. I always love coming home for the holidays, even though Ottawa is usually much colder than Toronto. Instead of writing about everything I received I decided to highlight my favourite gifts. So, here are some of my favourite gifts that I got this Christmas.

Kate Spade bag

I’m so happy to have gotten the Cameron street Candace satchel in tusk from Kate Spade. I’m obsessed with this purse! It’s so pretty and has loads of space so I can carry around so many things. It’s definitely my new favourite purse.

Ann Taylor necklace

My mother got me this adorable necklace from Ann Taylor. I love that it has little pieces inside the main pendant. She knows that I usually only wear gold jewelry so I love that she saw this and just knew I would like it and wear it often (which I have been). I didn’t own a low hanging pendant so this is a perfect addition to my small jewelry collection.

My 2018 planner and new journal

I’m obsessed with how sparkly my 2018 planner is! I love getting yearly planners to write down what I have to do. Plus, it’s always a cute addition to my desk.

I also got a new journal with “Everything starts with a dream” quoted on it. I think the quote is so cute and totally applies to me because I’m always daydreaming and thinking up new ideas for stories. I decided to make this journal my ‘idea’ journal where I could brainstorm story ideas, character names, lyrics, T.V. show ideas etc…

Two books

I absolutely love reading and escaping to a fictional world so it’s no surprise that I got some books. I’m so excited to put my reading socks on and wrapping myself up in a blanket to read my new books!

Skin care products

I’ve been getting super into skincare products recently so that my dry and dull skin can be revived. First Aid Beauty is a brand that I’m hoping I’ll love all the products I got for Christmas. GlamGlow is another brand that I’ve been intrigued by lately so I was glad to get the Supermud clearing treatment mask. Hopefully these products will help my skin stay hydrated and bright during the winter.

Overall, I’m super happy and grateful for the gifts my family and friends got me. I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas. Hope everyone else enjoyed their holidays!
