What I got for Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a great day yesterday whether you celebrate the holiday or not. I personally had a great day. Family, food and presents! So of course I now have to do the obligatory blogger post of what I got for Christmas.

The photo above is clockwise from left: Hang and peg kit, calendar, scrapbook, makeup bag, pjs and books. All my favourite things!

I was really excited to get the hang and peg set from Emma – thinking it will look great in my office. I’ll put up a mix of pretty cards and maybe even some of the polaroids I’ve had lying around waiting for a use!

The calendar is from my parents and is all food related puns. Perfect as this will be going in our kitchen across from the food pun gallery wall we have going on. The makeup bag is from one of my clients and I was so surprised to receive it. Best client ever right?! And of course being the pj queen that I am, Topher got me another set. I definitely needed them since my current pjs are all size 14s and kinda big on me now!

The books are The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck by Sarah Knight* which I’ve heard great things about and The Last Beginning by Lauren James* which is a sequel to a book I read this year called The Next Together*. I enjoyed it a lot so am looking forward to continuing the story.

Topher got me a Project Life Scrapbook (similar)* and cards* for it which I have been wanting for ages. 2017 is going to be the year where I start documenting more things in real life and not just digitally. Project Life is a simpler way of scrapbooking where you simply slot photos and pretty cards into plastic wallets. Not the best description but I’ll do a post on it soon so you’ll soon see what I mean!

And finally, probably the coolest gift this year has to go to my parents for getting me (and Topher!) a Fitbit*. So excited. I’ve noticed that working from home I don’t move around much. And to be honest, the same goes for previous years when I’ve worked in an office. I want this all to change in 2017 and with Topher having one too, there’s nothing better than a friendly bit of competition. The only problem is that his job is pretty active so I’m going to have to work hard to keep up. Challenge accepted!
