christmas recap

Happy New Year! Yup, I'm kind of late on my Christmas post, too much quality family time going on!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and got to celebrate it with the ones you love. I sure did...here's a quick recap of my Christmas:

I celebrated Christmas at my parents with my cousins. This was our tree with all of the lovely wrapped gifts!

This cute little ball of fur is my sister, Pinky! [Pinky is my parent's dog, therefore, Pink is my sister] She was decked out in the cutest Christmas outfit.

You can see her outfit better here as she greets the rest of my family by the door.

We had our hearts set on opening presents Christmas morning in our pajamas but our parents made us dress up for photos. I quickly changed into some comfy sweats right after this photo!

the cousins...and me on the far right

Oh yeah and it snowed!!!!! I don't think I've ever truly had a White Christmas, that I can remember at least.

Hi Mom! She thinks she's taking a picture of me with her iPad...she's not, she's taking a mini video. Poor thing took accidental mini videos of us opening presents all morning!

sorry so blurry but you can actually see the snow flurries

I introduced my family to Tim Tams and most of us mastered the Tim Tam Slam. You need to try these cookies! They originate from Australia but you can find the Pepperidge Farm version at Target for a limited time during the winter months. I didn't see any more of them at the Target closest to me so I had to check other ones near by. I cleared out a couple of the Target's of their Tim Tams supply. It wasn't all for me! I shared with my family. Honest!

And of course I had to do a Christmasy mani. This is Sephora by OPI's Pushing Your Luck. I got it on clearance at Sephora for $5! I really like this red. Some reds look orange on me, but this red actually look red. Sorry for the cropped image. My cuticles were so dry. I forgot to moisturize before taking this shot.

On my ring finger is a fun little Christmas tree as an accent. I taped off the tree part and used Nicole by OPI's Green Up Your Act for the tree and Finger Paints Twisted as ornaments and mattified it. I used Orly's Luxe for the gold topper.

How was your Christmas? Did Santa bring ya anything good? I should have asked Santa for a nice camera or classes on how to take better pictures with my old school camera haha


  1. Oh my god would you ever consider selling them? I've been to every store and found nothing. Walmart, Safeway, Target, Longs, Walgreens, MALLS. AHH, I've always wanted to try these! Hehe

    1. I never thought of that!! They are hard to find and I don't see them at Target anymore. If you have a World Market close to you, try going there. They have the real Australian cookies :)
