This is obviously such a late post but I wanna share some of the cool things I got last Christmas. It’s already the month of hearts and yet here I am talking of the holidays. Anyway, I need to catch up on some posts so I decided the first one’ll be from my Birthday month!
Most of what I’ll be posting are Birthday/Christmas gifts and sometimes I think it does suck to have your birthday the same month as Christmas because everyone will just give you one thing for both occasions but I like being a December baby! It makes me the youngest most of the time and I get to age last haha! Only when I was a little kid did I receive many gifts and of coursed it lessened as I grew older but what I love of the gifts that my friends now give me is that they know what I want already and I’m so blessed to have some of these friends who really appreciate our friendship.
So first up is my favorite gift from my friend, Kasen. I literally squealed when I got this in the mail. What’s funny is that it almost got lost and thank God it didn’t! I saw this Starbucks Cold Cup on the web one day and literally lusted for it. I told Kasen about it at one of our dinners and she told me that her mom was going to China and would help me look for it and I told her that was great and I’d just pay her for it. But voila after a week and some days, I got it in the mail as a Christmas gift! I soooo love it! I love you, Kasen :))
Second I got this very cute carousel music box from my friend, Jo. It’s so my style, as she told me and she was so right! haha! The music is lovely and it’s such a perfect display at the house. Definitely going to grab this when I get a place of my own someday.
Third, I got this very cute Wilde Pearle Polar Bear necklace from my friend, Tanhuan. This was more of like a ‘pasalubong’ or a trip gift I got when she went to Alaska. I really love neat stuff like this!
Lastly, I got myself some new foundation! I read great reviews online about the Revlon ColorStay foundation which is perfect for oily skin and I just had to try it. It did wonders to my skin. The matte effect it gave on my skin was perfect and the oil in my face reduced for like 80% the first day I used it. So I was very proud of myself for this deal! I got this for like Php 850.00, which I guess is already a good price for what it does.
Anyway, I didn’t post all the things I got (there weren’t so many anyway, trust me!) but I just posted the ones that really meant something and was obviously given thought to. I really appreciate my friends who give me things that mean something because I realize that it’s not the material thing that the gift is, but rather the growing friendship that is between us.
Belated Happy Holidays! (I just really wanted to say that haha!)
