What I Got For Christmas 2014

Calendar check - January 05, 2015!
I still have a 2014 food hangover from all the stuff I ate but I'm not complaining. I find myself very lucky to be this blessed. Anyway, today I'm sharing my first ever "What I Got For Christmas" post. I don't think I've ever done one of these before. Before I get started, I just want to clarify that I have ZERO intention of BRAGGING about anything in this post. Most items were gifted by generous family members & friends and the rest are stuff I bought with money I saved up from my sideline job - freelancing as a makeup artist & a baker for Sugar Works!
Having said that... Let's get started!

My sugar fix - Green Tea KitKat & chocolate bars from my mum & lil sister.

Several new tops from my mum. I'll be posting some "outfit-of-the-day" posts soon with these new pieces. I'm particularly fond of that gray checked long sleeved blouse that's barely peeking out.

New hankies from mum. The Lord knows I need new ones!

A polka dotted fleece blanket from my mum because she knows I love my soft warm blankets as much as I love my bed.

Charles & Keith 2-in-1 handbag & cross body bag from my dad. I really like this bag. It's my first "semi adult but still fun" bag that looks really classy.

Sandra (Tan) Bag by Tannery from my Ninang Sam. You can get yourself one of these beauties here. This is a great slouchy hobo for those dress down days where I run errands and need a lot of bag space to stuff my things in! It can even fit my 15" macbook pro!

Michaela 2-in-1 handbag & cross body bag that I bought for myself. This is what I consider a small bag. It can fit my everyday essentials like my wallet, keys, phones, a pack of tissues and an umbrella. This is what I've been using most of the time.

Blue Perllini wallet from my mum. I asked her for a new wallet that's a tri-fold because my old wallet was too big for my liking. I really like this new wallet of mine because it's blue!

Apple Blossom bath set from my Ninang Tess. I've yet  to open the seal on them but I'm already using the mini pink bath scrub.

Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea Lotus perfume from my mum. A clean and crisp new scent to add to my slow growing collection of perfumes. My lil sister received this last year and I've been hooked to the scent. Glad to finally have one for myself.

Contour kit & Blush palette from Red District. L'Oreal True Match liquid foundation from PrinsesitaCosmetics. Brush Egg from Beauty Cosmetics. Ever Bilena pencil and Goody elastics from local mall. All these items are my gifts to myself.

Revlon Suede Lipstick from my Tita Mei. I've swatched this a couple of time and wore it twice out. I've yet to come up with a review for this baby.

Books from my lil sister. She knows what a huge bookworm I am and I always appreciate getting books. I'm currently reading A Certain Age.

Pandora Essence bracelet from my mum. It has the charms Taurus, Love & Health. I plan on adding 2 more charms on this beautiful bracelet.

Kitchen scale from my dad. As I'm expanding my small business to fondant & gum paste cakes, this beautiful scale will definitely be a constant baking companion!

Decorating wheel/lazy susan & Fondant/Gum Past mold from my sister. Fondant roller from my Ninang Sam. These tools will definitely come in handy on my upcoming baking adventures. That fondant roller is just screaming "USE ME!"

Own print mittens & apron from my sister. She knows me too well. I'm a sucker for cutesy stuff and this definitely is cute. It's useful too! This will definitely keep me from staining my clothes and bring myself as I handle baking pans in the oven!

Last but not the least..
The biggest gift I got last Christmas was this beauty. A brand new iPhone 6 plus in silver. Needless to say, I'm in love. I'm still tinkering around with it but I'm very grateful to have it.

That's about it for my list. How about you guys? What did you get for Christmas? *smiles*
