What I Got For Christmas│Christmas 2016

12.30.2016

Righteo, you know what time it is....the annual "What I Got For Christmas" blogpost where I share the gifts that I was fortunate to receive on the 24th for Christmas and the 26th for my birthday (Christmas Day Two in the Netherlands). I was not really sure I was going to put one up as I do not know whether people would still be interested in these kinds of posts, but if you are then keep on reading!

Christmas Greetings

12.24.2016

It's Christmas! To everyone who celebrates it, a very merry Christmas!

As this is going online I am getting ready to head off to work, but knowing it'll be a very short day I am already looking forward to the Christmas festivities. Out of the three days (in the Netherlands we also have a second Christmas day on the 26th which also happens to be my birthday) Christmas Eve is the one where I feel fully immersed in the festive feeling. Considering most of the household has to work till about 4 o'clock we are making dinner pretty easy with hot plate grilling at the table. It has become a tradition. Once we have stuffed our faces with pretty much everything, it is time for games and the unwrapping of the presents everyone got each other. Yes, we typically do this on Christmas Eve which I know sounds wrong to a lot of people, but it is the way we do and have always done Christmas. Ending the night with a Christmas film or two as well as watching the ending of the annual 3FM Serious Request which this year raises money to battle pneumonia, the deadliest infectious disease infecting children under the age of 5. If you do not know what to watch over Christmas, my friend Bonnie posted a list of her recommendations on her blog, so go check it out! The rest of Christmas will consists of lie-ins followed by massive brunches that will keep us filled until dinner. To add to the brunch I brought home some mince pies from my recent trip to London. I only ever has this for the first time quite recently and want to introduce the rest of the family to it. As for the Christmas dinners, I am curious as to what we're getting though mom never fails to surprise us with amazing delicious dishes. Continuing the festivities I also brought some ciders from London which will for sure be a nice ending or start of an evening. 

However way you celebrate these days, I hope you are having a great time.
Happy Holidays!

In case you haven't seen my numerous excitable tweets in the weeks leading up to last weekend I spent a couple of days in London with one of my closest friends. What started shockingly disastrous ended up being an amazing weekend.

The embracing warmth as you step away from the cold and walk inside

The appetizing smells greeting you

The great company with you

A lunch with a friend

A year or so ago H&M released an entire revamped beauty collection ranging from hair care to makeup products. Back then I picked up four lip products and a powder foundation to try and was pleasantly surprised. As it is almost a year ago, I am going to share a couple of the more recent items I have been using.

It's wonderful what a walk and fresh air can do to a person

The crisp air filling our lungs

The trees surrounding us

A walk in nature
