What I Got For Christmas 2019

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you guys what I got for Christmas. I do want to say that I’m in no way trying to brag, I’m one of those people that enjoy reading and watching this type of post. This year I didn’t have a real list of things I wanted, so I was happily surprised by a few of these gifts.

The first thing we have is what was in my stocking. Besides my favorite candy, there was a Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar mist and body lotion. It’s my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works. Along with that there was a little flashlight, I love little practical things like this and you can never have too many flashlights. The last two things that were in my stocking were a mini Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder infused with peach and sweet fig milk and the Peach Kiss Lipstick in Sex On The Peach.

I used the setting powder yesterday and today and I really like it. Added bonus, it smells like peaches. The lipstick also smells like peaches and it’s a comfort matte, long wearing and also infused with peach and sweet fig milk. Too Faced lipsticks are always really pigmented and this one is no different. I believe there are 13 shades of the Peach Kiss Lipsticks and I’m definitely going to be purchasing a few more.

Continuing on with the beauty theme, the first thing I unwrapped was the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party set. I was honestly so, so shocked to see this because I had mentioned it in a text to my mom like right after it came out then didn’t say anything after. I was considering buying this for myself as a Christmas gift but it was sold out on Sephora and Too Faced when I looked but for whatever reason I didn’t check at my local Sephora and they had a couple left which I’m super happy about. I’m going to be doing a separate post on this, so I’m not going to get into it too much, but I will say that yesterday I wore a couple of the shadows and I’m really happy with them. It was a good makeup day.

The second beauty item I got was the Sephora Collection Frosted Kisses Lip Stories Lipstick Set. This is also going to get it’s own post, but I will say that I’ve swatched all of these, wore one on Christmas Day and I’m wearing one now. I’m really liking them and I recommend them.

Next up we have a fashion item and it’s this light powder pink shoulder bag from H&M. I have a few different handbags and clutches but nothing like this. Like I said this is a light powder pink suede with silver hardware and leathery handles. It has a snap closure, one medium sized pocket on the very front, the main compartment and another pocket inside the main. You can adjust the way you wear it, so if the handles are the same length then it’s a shoulder bag, but if you stretch it out you can wear it like a crossbody. I didn’t realize when I was taking the pictures that it was a little crooked but that’s because of the pull on the door and not that bag.

Moving on we have a couple of practical things. The first is a 2020 Erin Condren Planner. I got my first Erin Condren Planner last Christmas and it was an absolute game changer, so I knew I had to have one for the new year. This will be getting it’s own post, but I did go for a different pattern, different colors and I put my first and middle name on it.

The second practical gift I got was a calendar. I have a couple of calendars that I use for different things and sometimes they’re different sizes but this one is my main calendar. There are two or three themes I typically go for when it comes to calendars, this one is jet themed. And has some great pictures.

And the last thing we have is music related, and it’s the Doobie Brothers Live From The Beacon Theatre Blu-Ray and CD Set. I talked about this when it came out, I have it on my phone and they showed a little bit of it on PBS. I like to have a physical copy of music, hence the CD Set and if I can help it I buy all discs in Blu-Ray. So I’m excited to have a music night and watch the full concert.

That about wraps it up for this post, I did also receive some socks, because it’s not Christmas if you don’t get socks, and a mug but it’s currently in the dishwasher because I used it this morning.

Until next time, enjoy your gifts and I hope you all had an amazing Christmas :).

October Rocksbox Unboxing and Review

Hi everyone,

I recently decided, because it’s getting towards the end of the year, to try out a few new subscription boxes. And today I’m going to be unboxing and reviewing the first one that I received, the October Rocksbox. Rocksbox is a jewelry subscription service that sends you 3 pieces, each month with the option to buy and you can swap out any/all of your jewelry before they send your box out. It’s a really good concept and I don’t know why it took me so long to subscribe to them.

JB1

When you open the box you’re met with a little card that says ‘but first, jewelry’ and has info about your set for the month. Under that is a welcome card with info about the brand and under that is a jewelry care card.

JB2

Under the paperwork is polka dot tissue paper, which is wrapped around the jewelry and held together with an ‘enjoy’ sticker.

JB3

Each piece of jewelry¬†comes in it’s own soft drawstring bag and I love that, great for storage and protection.

JB4

So my first piece of jewelry is a pair of gorgeous Kendra Scott Harrison Drop Earrings in Rose Gold and Rose Gold Druzy. These have a great sparkle and are so pretty when the light hits them.

JB5

Next up we have a Sophie Harper x Sterling Silver Double Layer Disc Necklace. I love necklaces like this. The simplicity, the detail and the sparkle is perfect.

JB6

And the last piece in this set is the Ava Rose Aspen Bracelet in Gold and Lapis. I don’t wear a lot of bracelets like this but I really liked the look of it on the website and I’m glad I chose it. The pop of color and the simplicity is great.

JB7

I didn’t include any pictures of me wearing the jewelry because I didn’t want to put them all on just to take pictures so when I wear them in real life situations I’ll post pictures on my Instagram.

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I’m really impressed with Rocksbox and I recommend.

Until next time, enjoy your jewelry and you can never subscribe to too many boxes :).
