Christmas Blessings: A Peak into my Holiday

I hope all of you lovelies had a beautiful Christmas this year and a happy holiday! This year was
just wonderful in my book! It was simple and relaxing. I had a new friend over to bake cookies, I was off on Christmas Eve and I only worked a bit on Christmas day. Over all it was just so...for lack of a better word, nice. But maybe a better word isn't needed. Nice is perfect. Nice: pleasant; agreeable; satisfactory. That sums it up rather well! We kept it simple this year and it was one of the best. It was nice just being home and recharging. We even had plans to go out and ended up just watching A Christmas Story at home instead. 
My dad is an executive chef, not sure if I've mentioned that on here or not; he made the most delightful dinner for us, which is more rare than you may imagine as he doesn't want to come home and cook after a long day of doing just that.
The meal was a Lobster, served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. 
The halls were decked and the stockings all hung and yes, there is the matter of gifts. Now I always feel kinda funny about posting what I was blessed with. I don't want to brag or make others feel bad, but I do know I enjoy seeing these sorts of posts. It's just interesting to see what other people were given and to see what other people had hoped for and received. To see peoples tastes is fun and gives me ideas for not just myself but others. We, as a family, have had ups and downs, with that, the look under the tree has varied. So, with that being said I hope you understand where my heart is when posting this and that not all my holidays have been like this. 
Kate Spade iPhone 6 Case This design is only at Best Buy. 
I love this design and how it is both simple and cute. I really like the mix of colors in this case. I'm a bit of a phone case lover, so this is just ideal...plus Kate Spade!!
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Velvet Underground. 
After trying the mini trio from Charlotte Tilbury I fell in love and my mom said her and my dad wanted me to get me one and to tell her which shade and aside from the name this pink is up my ally. More to come on this! But, hello, the packaging.....
I am in love with just looking at these. Using them is so good too! I just want everything to be soft and pink and lovely and oh the Valentine's looks that I can do!! 
A bit of a tradision, I get a Starbucks mug, cup or travel mug pretty much every year. This year I got two and they are quite fashionable.
This was a complete and total surprise! I have been looking at this watch since the spring time and my parents decided to bless me with this beautiful piece of jewelry! I love the style of a boyfriend watch and I am obsessed with yellow gold right now. They out did themselves this time! 

So that wraps up this Christmas round up. I hope you liked a peak into how it was and a look 
what was under the tree. I am so very thankful for all of these things I was blessed with and I can't wait to share some fun looks with the makeup. Lots of love and holiday feels sent your way.
