Presents From Santa 2014

Christmas was a success this year! I got some wonderful presents that’ll keep me busy during my winter break. Check it out!

One of my good friends bought me this cup that says “Cheers Bitches.” I honestly think it’s the cutest thing.

I also received these two mugs that I think are both very pretty. In case you can’t read it, the one with the fox says “you make the world a better place just by being in it” and the one with the whale says “you are so loved.” Nothing like starting off your day with a cup of tea and positive quote!

Next I got this little pretty dress. It’s a one size fits all.. isn’t that weird? I’m very petite so I thought if anything it’d be too big, but I was sure wrong! It fits okay, but it’s a little bit too short. I don’t know if I could get away with wearing this without tights.

I’ve wanted this book for as long as I can remember. I’m not going to lie, so far I’m quite disappointed. I am a strong believer in astrology and all of that stuff, but this book hasn’t seemed to be too accurate so far. Anyone else have this book? What do you think of it?

Miranda Kerr is my role model. I think she’s so inspirational and so beautiful inside and out. I’m looking forward to reading this book. Let me know if you’d like to hear a book review on this book or any of the ones mentioned! I’ll probably write a few either way haha.

Okay so I’m really into spirituality and self-help books. I personally feel it’s important to be in touch with your inner emotions and to keep yourself centered. Books like these definitely help me succeed in doing that (along with meditating twice a day).

I’m a big Jenna Ushkowitz and Glee fan. I’ve heard great reviews on this book so I’m really excited to read it.

I’m graduating soon which means I need to start thinking about my future. I definitely want to work in the fashion industry and so hopefully this book can give me some tips and tricks to do that.

Alright, now let’s look at actual books. Haunted is a novel, but is made up of 23 short stories. I actually don’t know much about it other than that, but I’m very excited to read something by Chuck Palahniuk.

Okay, okay I know I’m a bit too old to be reading The Clique series, but hear me out. I was obsessed with this series from 6th-8th grade, but I never finished the last book. I’ve made it a mission to finish this book. And I can’t really lie, the series is such a quick and easy read that I still enjoy them. I’ll probably have this book read within the next day or two.

I haven’t had much of an interest in John Green. Fault in Our Stars doesn’t seem like my kind of book, but I’ve heard great reviews on Looking For Alaska and it sounds pretty interesting so I decided to give it a try.

Elsewhere is a book by Gabrielle Zevin about a girl who dies in a hit and run accident. The book, from my understanding, is about her after life.

I’m not just now jumping onto The Perks of Being a Wallflower train. I read the book a few years ago and honestly, it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read. This is one of those books that I genuinely believe is worth the hype. Not only that, but the movie is great too! Of course the book is better (as always) but the movie still did the book justice. Which is why, for Christmas, I asked for my own copy of the book and the movie. I can’t wait to reread it.

This book really caught my eye. It’s about a mother and daughter who do not, I assume, have much time to see each other. What they do to keep in contact is write notes and put them on the refrigerator door for the other to see. The entire book is written in these little notes that they write. It’s honestly so unique that I just have to read it.

Best. Diary. Ever.

Titanic is my favorite movie of all time. Always has been, always will be. The thing is, my brother literally owns every movie known to man; therefore, I never really bothered to purchase movies in the past because I would always just borrow his. But now we’re getting older and we’re both moving out next year so i can’t rely on borrowing his movies anymore. Now I finally own my own copy of Titanic so now I can stop stealing his.

Like I said, we’re both moving out soon and I don’t have that many movies. I figured if I’m leaving home I at least need to own a few of my favorites.

I watch Moulin Rouge! like once a week. It’s about time I have my own copy.

Well, I’m a sucker for musicals. Rent is a classic.

That’s basically everything I got for Christmas!! I love everything I got and I’m so excited to spend the next week watching movies and reading books. Once again, let me know if you would like me to write a review on any of these books (or even movies!)

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!!! xoxo
