Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, spent a lot of time with friends & family and ate a lot of amazing food.
My favourite type of YouTube and blogs to watch and read are “what I got for Christmas” because it’s so interesting to see the best stuff people got! I also take a lot of style inspiration from these types of posts. I figured I would share what I got for Christmas as well as what I bought myself during boxing week!
For Christmas my family was super thoughtful and got me everything I could have wanted.
My brother got me a Becca Cosmetics highlights in moonstone, which I am OBSESSED with.
My sister got me a candle and shower set from Bath & Bodyworks and it smells amazing! It has a super familiar smell, I can’t figure out what it reminds me of, but I love it. She also got me a mean girls inspired travel mug and matching coffee cups for my fiancé and I. She also got me a choker from Forever 21. She knows me too well.
My dad got me an AMAZING bottle of wine and the faux fur rug I’ve been lusting after forever!!
From Forever 21 I bought a slouchy knit sweater and a lightweight tan jacket. Both of these items are fashion basics I’ve been wanting forever but I have never found ones that I loved. The sweater was $25 and the jacket was $53.
From Bath & Bodyworks I picked up some of my favourite candles while they were on sale. They were $11.50 each!! Score! Pumpkin spice is a great sweet and spicy smell that is perfect for the colder weather. Fireside smells exactly like its name; it’s like sitting beside a fire. Love it.
I stoped at Reitmens and grabbed 2 sweaters and a necklace. The grey sweater is oversized and the perfect amount of slouchy & the black is a sleeveless knit which will be perfect all year. The necklace is a rose gold semi choker style necklace. Everything this was 60% off so each top was around $20 and the necklace was $5.
Oh Aritzia…. you always sucker me in. I’m pretty proud of myself for controlling my spending here, I only grabbed what I “needed”. I bought a bralette / sports bra and a baseball cap. They were both on sale for $25. Gotta stick up for the new year resolutions.
Finally my friend gave me a faux fur vest that I have not taken off since getting it. One of the best gifts I have ever gotten. I have put off buying one for ever because I never found one that I liked but this one is perfect and works so well with every outfit.
