What I Got For Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas Everybody!

Although this post kinda went up late, I still feel the holiday spirit. So, these presents are a mixture of what I got for myself and what my parents got me. I feel really thankful and blessed to be able to have all of these and more during Christmas day.

  • Dark Blue Cardigan

So during Christmas eve (the 24th), me and my brother went to Greenhills Shopping Center which is pretty much an indoor market. I got this cardigan for PHP 150 (3.01 USD) since I always wear these things when I'm on the go and can't be bothered to mix and match my outfits or pretty much when I throw on leggings and a tank top. I only have a really thick black cardigan, a white blazer and a gray thin cardigan, so I'm really happy that I get to add this into my collection. 

  • Pants

For the past few months, I've been so into these pants. They are the comfiest things ever and they are such a fashionable piece. I own 2 black ones that are about the same cut but none of them has this fabric. I also opted for a gray one for those days that I want to look a little bit more dressed up. Also, they're pretty cheap since they cost PHP 350 (7.03 USD) or 3 for PHP 1,000.

  • Shorts

I rarely wear shorts nowadays but I honestly found this so cute that I really wanted to get it. This was PHP 350 (7.03 USD) and fits me quite nicely. So I'll be wearing this whenever I just go to hang out with friends or doing some quick errands that does not require me to dress nicely.

  • Belt

I don't own a lot of belts, actually I think I only have 1 silver belt that I use whenever I wear my baggy shorts and that rarely looks good on what I wear. So, I got this belt to use whenever I feel like tucking in my shirt or just pretty much showing the top part of my pants which I often do nowadays. This was PHP 150 (3.01 USD) also from Greenhills.

  • Starbucks Planner

I really didn't think that I would be able to get this one until the end of the year or probably early on the next year, but I got it exactly during Christmas day. Basically, you'll need to collect 18 stickers, 9 from their regular drinks and 9 from their holiday drinks. I started collecting since the first week of November, so it was kind of expected for me to get this sooner or later since I drink Starbucks as a necessity for studying. 

  • L'Officiel Magazine

Well, I actually buy this magazine almost every month due to it's layout since it really has that modern feel into it. I use this magazine as a source for inspiration on what I want my blog post or pictures to look like, it kinda helps me with dressing myself too which I'm not all that good at since this is basically a fashion type magazine. I got this for PHP 250 (5.02 USD) at National Bookstore in Shangri-la during Christmas Eve since me and my brother were spending the night at a hotel room and I didn't really feel like watching TV. 

  • Makeup Pouch

This was just a quick purchase on my side since we happen to pass by Daiso in the midst of last minute Christmas shopping. I found this on a small corner of the store for PHP 88. There was also another pouch that says "eyebrows on fleek". There were only 4 of these left, 2 of each design. I'll be using this as a makeup pouch to put inside my bag so that I won't have to dig through endless things for a powder or a lipstick.

  • Pandora Princess Tiara Ring in Rose Gold

I actually got this ring in advance during the 20th of December because it was selling out so fast. Pandora's branch at SM Megamall didn't have these in stock anymore (even in silver) so I went to Pandora's branch at Shangri-la and they had this as the very last one in Rose gold. Luckily, it fit me just right so I got it. It was PHP 4,500 (90.39 USD) which I think is worth it since I love rings and I'll be using this very often. I really can't stop looking at it, I'm so obsessed and it was actually the only thing that I wanted for Christmas so I'm just so happy. 

So those are the things that I got for Christmas, I could say that I had an awesome time and I hope you did as well. Now, it's time to get ready for the new year!

Also, if you're interested, you can read about what I got for last year's Christmas right here, hint: it's the time I got my camera.

  4. Ah, I meant to pick up L'OFFICIEL when I was in Paris. Funny watched a movie on Netflix about a model in Paris. Should have been good but it was not. It was mainly just her having sex wit men, nothing to do with fashion or modeling. Probably wh it got only 2 stars. But looks like you got some wonderful gifts and I like what you did with your "layout" : )
