What I Got For Christmas 2014

Processed with VSCOcam

Hello lovelies! I can not believe the Christmas season is over! This makes me so sad because I love the Christmas season. One of my favorite things to see after Christmas is What I Got For Christmas videos on Youtube and blog posts. They often give me ideas on what to put on my wish list for next years Christmas lol I would love to also know what you guys got for Christmas this year. Let me know in the comments below.

The number one thing on my wish list was the Ikea Alex 9 drawer unit. My vanity was over flowing with makeup and I couldn’t find anything nearly as amazing as this. The one problem was that there is no Ikea near me for 300 miles. And shipping was almost triple the actual cost of the unit. So my wonderful boyfriend surprised me and took a drive 300 miles to Ikea and got me what I wanted most for Christmas. Yay!

Christmas would not be the same without holiday scented gift scents. I love Philosophy’s body wash and was so happy to receive this amazing set.

I nearly cried when this sold out at sephora.com. I have amazing family members who hunted this one down for me. I absolutely love it!

Christmas would also not be the same without some Victoria’s Secret scent gift sets. Oh Em Gee the Very Sexy scent is amazing. My new favorite body spray!

Can we also just look at this perfume bottle. Katy Perry Killer Queen is awesome. I love the scent but I think I love the cool looking bottle more.

Recently I’ve been wanting a 1 1/4″ curling wand from Hot Tools. Although this isn’t a wand I am still going to treat it as so. I took off the clamp and works perfectly as a wand.

My coworker is well aware of my nail polish addiction and was sweet enough to get me this nail set from Elf. I will being using this set for like two months straight. The colors in this are great! Super happy with this!!

So that is what I got guys. I am very grateful for what my family and friends gifted me this year. They know me so well! I would love to know what you all received. Let me know in the comments below.

Drugstore Haul: It’s a 10, Chi, and Cetaphil

 Processed with VSCOcam

Hello everyone! Just wanted to share what I got at the drugstore the other day. Most of these items are repurchases of items i  absolutely adore as well as a few things I’ve been eager to try. Read on to find out what exactly i got…Ohh and don’t forget to let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these products :))

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

It’s a 10 Miracle Leave in Conditioner 

Chi Silk Infusion 

I bought two bottles of the It’s a 10 Miracle Leave in Conditioner because it is one of my absolute favorite hair products. I have curly crazy hair that often gets tangles. This is by far my favorite detangler and it doesn’t hurt that it does nine other amazing things. I also repurchased the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream because I live for this stuff. I use this as my daily moisturizer. I often use this at night before bed as well and I love it. Not to mention that this tub is huge! One of these tubs will last me a whole year and that is because i use it almost twice daily.

This will be my first time trying the Chi Silk Infusion oil and I am super excited for it. I have been eager to try a new hair oil and this looked promising. I’m not a big fan of the hefty price tag but I have heard wonders of this product so I knew I had to give it a shot. Same goes with the Cetaphil cleanser. I have seen so many people swear by this cleanser so why not right? I already know that I am a huge fan of Cetaphil moisturizers so how can the cleanser be much different right? We will have to see.

I hope everyone is enjoying the new year! Wishing you guys the best! :)))
