What I got for Christmas 2014


Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. Even now, I still get those happy little butterflies on Christmas morning. I love going shopping, wrapping gifts, making good food, decorating the tree and everything else that comes along with Christmas! I am very lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful family members and friends who want to give me such nice gifts and I thought I would share with everyone what was under my tree this year! I really love hearing what other people got, so I thought this would be a fun post.

I'm obviously not going to show every little thing, because that would take forever. But I will share the main things I received this year.


The bracelet was a completely unexpected gift from one of my best friends when he visited on Christmas day! The watch is from my grandmother because I had mentioned before that I really wanted a gold watch.


If you've been following me for awhile you've probably picked up that I'm a bit in love with Katy Perry. So of course, when my mom saw this she totally had to pick it up. Anything with Katy on it is definitely a win in my book!


I am a sucker for gift sets. Little things like this make me so excited! It's silly, but I always really look forward to using everything in these types of sets!


Hell House was something my mom picked up on a whim for me and I'm so happy she did! I love everything creepy and haunted so of course I love flipping through this book. I also had been wanting Black Hole for awhile, I can't wait to read it!


I think I'm most excited about these two books I received. I absolutely love Grace Helbig and Amy Poehler. They are both such funny, smart and incredible ladies and I cannot wait to get around to reading them!



Everyone knows how much I love The Last of Us so of course it was only natural for them to pick this up for me for Christmas. It's such an interesting book to look through! The art is incredible and I really want to start collecting art books for all of my favorite games. 


I had been needing a new pair of boots for awhile, my current ones are completely falling apart. These were such a nice surprise and I was so relieved when I saw there was a zipper on the side! I love my Doc Martens but pulling them on and off constantly is so annoying. I have already tried these on and worn them for a few hours and they are so comfortable and fit perfectly! I also like the little heel they have. 



I got some video games, as usual. These four were actually the ones I wanted the most and I was pretty shocked that I got all of them. The one I wanted most was obviously The Last of Us (who could have guessed). I've already beat it twice if that tells you anything!


I have been wanting to become a Playstation gamer for awhile now! So seeing this under the tree was very exciting! Earlier in December I ended up selling my Xbox 360 along with all of my games so I could make some money to get a PS3, so I was extremely thrilled to have one. It's also nice that it plays Blu-ray's and Netflix as well!


And last, but certainly not least, I got a new TV! I'm not the type of person who has to have a huge, new flat screen but oh man I REALLY needed a new one. My old TV was falling freezing and I couldn't plug anything into it. This new one is so lovely and it's great to play all of my new games on or just relax and watch some Netflix!



As always, Christmas was wonderful and I want to thank all of my family members and friends who thought of me. I hope your holiday was wonderful as well!

How was your Christmas? What was your favorite gift you received/gave?

  15. Wow, those are great gifts! You make me want to get back into gaming, too. Lol. For Christmas, I just got mostly money, a Starbucks gift card, lots of pajama pants (I shamefully admit that I practically live in them at home), candies, and movies (The Maze Runner, Disney's Sleeping Beauty, and Disney's Brave).

    By the way, I'm hosting a small giveaway, and I hope that you will participate!
