My Christmas and New Year's Eve 2013

Friday, January 10, 2014

Hello Lovelies! I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year

It's been a while since I last made a post; let me catch up with you by telling you about my Christmas, New Year's Eve this year and pretty much everything I've been up to during these Holidays.



Christmas


I spent Christmas at home together with my family - the common and traditional Swedish way. Watching 
From All of Us to All of You, having dinner with family, playing the 'Absolute Christmas' CD on repeat,  and opening presents!

In the picture to the left you can see m
e and my younger sister, all dressed up for Christmas. The last time we took a picture together was when we were like 8 and 4 years old, so I'm glad that we finally have a nice picture of only us two together. A lot of people actually tell us that she looks like the older one - Do you think so too?

I'm also very curious about how you guys celebrate Christmas, especially if you live anywhere else than Sweden. What kind of traditions do you have? What do you eat? Do you celebrate another holiday instead of Christmas? Tell me about it in the comments!

Pictures below are a close up of the look I had on Christmas and our little Christmas corner.

    

Now, let's get to one of the best parts about Christmas (except for spending time with your family and eating good food) - The presents! This is what I got this year:

    
I finally have a PS3! I actually didn't expect to get one since I was thinking of getting it myself, so it was definitely a very nice surprise gift. I also got a whole lot of beauty products! Skin care, hair care, perfume, body lotion - you name it! I actually got a lot more stuff but to be honest I was too lazy to take it all out since I had already put it neatly into my Makeup Drawer. 

I had been waiting for this perfume to be launched in Sweden for so long and since it came out so close to Christmas I thought that I as well could just put it on my wish list. I really wanted the big bottle but since it was sold out I got two of these 30ml ones instead. I really love it and it's my new favorite, sharing first place with Pink Friday.

    
I got a GLOSSYBOX and a Mini Volume Iron. The Flat & Curling Iron was actually a gift I bought for myself. 

My dear friend Zakkary came to visit me a couple of days after Christmas, and he got me all of these super cute gifts.  Other than all of these amazing gifts I also got what pretty much everyone gets for Christmas, which also is one of my favorite things to receive - Cash! What did you get for Christmas?

    
We went both skiing and ice skating during the Holidays. I really love skiing but It has actually been many years since I last did it. This was the first time I went skiing this season but I'll definitely go again as soon as possible. 

   


New Year's Eve 


On New Year's Eve me and Zakkary went to Stockholm together to celebrate with my friends.

We started off by having an amazing dinner at Mio's place together with a few friends and later on we went to another friend's party.

In the picture to left you can see Line, Zakkary, Me & Rickard (creeping in the background). This would've been a perfect shot if Mio had been in it, haha! But naturally we only took derpy pictures together and I think it's for the best if I spare you the sight of them 

Anyhow, things got a bit crazy like they usually get at parties like these, but we had a lot of fun!

We had a really good view of the fireworks and I was able to take some pretty nice shots (if I may say so myself). It was magical!
    

    

    

    The next day we had dinner at Ramen Ki-mama and coffee at the newly opened Starbucks in Stockholm!

And at last but not least - A picture of me and Zakkary on his last day of vacation here in Sweden.

This Christmas and New Year's Eve was very eventful and It was definitely one of the best ones so far!

I really had so much fun during the past two weeks and I hope that all of you enjoyed your Holidays as much as I did. I wish you all the best for the year of 2014.

Bye for now, lovelies~
