Birthday/Holiday Gift Round Up (I couldn't resist)

Generally speaking I'm not a fan of "What I Got for Christmas" posts but here I am basically writing my own. I'm not writing this post to brag at all, but a few of the things I received I am REALLY excited about and wanted to share with you! Also, it might be helpful to hear a little review in case you've had your eye on some after holiday sales. See? I'm looking out for you here. 

I tend to get stressed making wish lists during the holidays because my birthday is five days before Christmas so I've got two lists to make. Poor me, right? But one thing that I put on my list immediately was this Michael Kors watch.

As you all are aware I'm really in to black and gold so I was searching around for a boyfriend style watch that met my needs. There were so many that just looked huge and obnoxious on my tiny baby wrist. But then I came across this one at Macy's. Praise hands emoji. It was the boyfriend style but slim enough that I would be comfortable wearing it. And I do almost every day!

My parents really stepped up their game this year in the present area. My mom picked out this bracelet from Madewell and she hit it out of the park. Gold? Check. Geometric? Check. Adjustable size? Check. It's my fave. I couldn't find the exact bracelet online but I am really diggin' this one.

Speaking of Madewell, the 'rents also picked up this grey button down for me. I've coveted Madewell for some time but the closest store is in Jacksonville soooooo it's not exactly easy for me to pop over to take a look. But again, when in doubt? Go basic. I love the length of this button down, the softness and structure and did I mention it has pockets??? Like real pockets! Ahhhhh, can't get over it!

(and yes, when I first saw it was an XXS I was like uhhhh ya'll don't know me. However, it's an oversized button down and this truly fits me! So if you're thinking of picking one up you might was to size down.)

You've seen my Coffee and Cuddles tee in Monday's post and you bet it's one of my holiday faves. Clancy...you da real MVP.

I'm also pumped about a few make-up/skin care items as well. Clancy is the queen of eyeshadows so when she's picks you up a new palette for your bday you know you're in good hands. The Naked 2 Basics palette has been on my eyelids ever since I unwrapped it. You guys, it's neutrals come on you know I love it.

Since December is my birthday month I couldn't forget to pick up my Sephora bday gift! If you're not signed up for that yet I highly recommend. This year's gift is the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser and Rose Face Mask. I've only used the cleanser a few times because I'm still working on my cleanser from Boscia but so far I'm a fan. It has a really natural scent and gets off practically all of your makeup. The Rose Face Mask is a real winner. I've already used it 3-4 times and it is amazing! It doesn't dry like some masks but leave it on for 5-10 minutes then rinse off and you feel so refreshed. The scent isn't too powerful either, it's actually very calming.

I also couldn't resist gifting myself with a little something too. Braving the outlet malls during the holidays is near insane but when Kate Spade is having a store-wide 60% off sale, you take the risk.

 When my purse was stolen back in August (yeah yeah, so sad) my wallet went with it. I was pissed because that wallet was perfect, it had so many pockets! I've been searching for a replacement ever since but just haven't found the right one. Until now. Kate Spade has your back in the wallet department. I cannot get over how much I LOVE this one. It's black so duh I love, and it's this awesome sort of microfiber material which is so practical for me. And it has ALL the pockets! YAY!

Pretty sure this one was only available in store but this one is a classic!

Now these last two are sort of random tech items but they're what I've gotten the most use out of so far. Ya'll, my dad bought me a selfie stick. I opened it on Christmas and literally laughed out loud! But honestly it's so fun! And my Google Chromecast has made my Netflix viewing wayyyyyyy too easy. Binge watching Making a Murderer anyone? You just plug this baby into your tv, log in, and start watching! Netflix, YouTube, Hulu you name it! 

Hope you all enjoyed this little post about my holiday favorites! Let me know what you got this year and what you're excited about!!
