Christmas Fun and My Newly Acquired Fairy Wand

IMG_5457

Hallå!!! 🎄

Everyone has their own personal feelings about Christmas time. Some feel that magical joy, others may feel indifferent, and then some may not like it at all for various reasons of their own.

Me? I absolutely looooooove this time of year! BRING IT ON!!!

I took some photos at a local Christmas tree farm recently. It was an enchanting little place that only fueled my already-existing Christmas cheer I’ve been all about lately!

My “not ready for the camera” face…also, this photo accurately shows just how short I am.

This bow is literally a Christmas decoration from Dollar Tree. I turned it into a clip-on pin, and there you have it! I immediately turn into a Christmas present. 🎁

I hope you all feel the Christmas magic in some way, shape, or form. There’s plenty of it to be found; all you have to do is look around, really. ❤️

I have my Christmas shopping complete! My favorite part is wrapping it all up and making it look pretty. In addition to the main gifts, I included pink snowflake confetti, chocolates, German cinnamon star cookies (Zimtsterne)…I went all out!

In my next post, I will show you my gift wrapping! 💜

In other news, I now have a squishy wand in my purse, if I ever need it. For anything. Like maybe, granting a wish, turning a pumpkin into a carriage, self-defense against an assailant, etc. It’s very multi-purpose.

Assailant sitting in jail: “Yeah I went to purse-snatch this woman but she bludgeoned me over the head with a fairy wand.” 

This great wand was given to me when I went walking down Candy Cane Lane to see Christmas lights with a group of adorable human beings who dress in Lolita fashion.

DID I MENTION IT LIGHTS UP IN BURSTS OF FLASHES??? 🌟 So not only is it a wand, but it can also be used to have a spontaneous one-woman rave, wherever I go.

Lastly…I put up my PINK CHRISTMAS TREE!!!

I have always wanted a pink tree! I finally did it and went with a Barbie theme for the ornaments. I absolutely love it and it turned out just as lovely as I envisioned! 💖

‘Til next time!!!

Hello and Merry Christmas!

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas day! It was an enjoyable day for me here at home with my family, eating and opening gifts. [I received a set of new canvas’ and an art kit filled with mixed media to work with, so I’m super excited to start creating new stuff!]

Speaking of art, I hung up three of my abstract paintings last night. I think they look lovely together as a group.

Christmas Morning

Nothing like starting the holiday off right with a berry smoothie (I wish I could say I made this myself, but my mom did). ❤

Some festive Christmas attire…I brought my boots out again! I’m not a big denim person, but I figured I’d try something different.

I’ve been wearing chokers again! It’s been awhile.

A picture of our Christmas tree in the living room; I took this on the night of Christmas Eve. ❤

Wishing everyone happiness and peace. Merry Christmas!

Finally Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you all had a joyous day. I had a really great Christmas filled with food, family and fun. Always been my favorite day out of the year. 🙂

I took some outfit photos before anyone showed up…

I’m super short…in some of my pictures I look tall just because of how I set up my phone to take the picture, but I’m really not and this picture shows it, LOL.

Yeah, I kept my socks and slippers on the entire day. Since Christmas was held at my place and I didn’t go anywhere all day, I figured I’d stay comfortable and didn’t need actual shoes. My outfit was complete with fuzzy slippers and gingerbread man “Bite Me” socks. My family is pretty used to my out-there fashion choices so I’m sure it didn’t phase them. 😉

My sweater is actually a very old sweater I’ve had since high school. It’s a gorgeous green and one of my all-time favorites. I paired it with a simple black skirt, and the red belt is a hand-me-down from my mom that she wore in the 80’s.

I wore one of my handmade statement rings, of course. 🙂

Just a few snapshots of some of the gifts I received…Rudolph mints, chocolate, accessories, a Star Wars book and Hello Kitty slippers…doesn’t matter how old I get, I’ll always love Hello Kitty, haha.

I hope everyone had a fantastic day and is ready for the upcoming New Year!

Tights Season

I’ve gotten back into wearing knee-highs (well, these are tights, but give the illusion of being knee-highs!). Tights like these are fun and add some sass to any outfit, and I have two pairs that I really like. One would be the above, which have little black hearts dotted along the top. 🙂

The lighting outside was so bad this morning. :/ Still! I managed to get a somewhat decent picture of my beloved cat tights.  I haven’t worn ’em since last winter, so I was all-too happy to bring them out again.

I made that little Santa ring. It can be found on my Etsy shop. 🙂

It’s cold today, but not as cold as it has been the past few days. Also, I’m going to go see Rogue One today in a few hours and I’m highly looking forward to it! I’m such a Star Wars junkie.

I hope everyone’s enjoying these few days left leading up to Christmas. Time has flown this past year, it feels like!
