Hello all! I hope you had a wonderful holiday, unfortunately it is now over. I am back to school tomorrow :( I really only had about 10 days of a break and I had to do A LOT of family stuff for most of it. Not that I mind. It was lovely. I think my body was trying to tell me something though because I was terribly sick with a cold for most of my holidays! I had just exerted myself too much over this semester and the sickness was my body's way of getting all the nastiness out I suppose.
I would like to introduce you all to a very special someone. This is Miss Lady and she is a spoiled rotten King Charles Cavalier mix. She is utterly rotten but we love her :)
HEHE! WHAT A FACE!
My brother's girlfriend Emma got me this vintage inspired makeup bag. I love it! It's soooo me :) Haha!
I got this pop up book called Enchanted Dolls' House Wedding. It had several pop up Victorian houses and talks about Victorian, Edwardian, and Regency wedding traditions and dressing styles. It's amazing! It's a children's book of course haha, but it looks fantastic opened up on top of my fireplace.
I also got this book called Princess Alyss of Wonderland. It's the pretend diary of "Alyss" who is a real princess of Wonderland but Lewis Carroll just told her story all wrong. What a silly concept! But it's delightful, and is a really really beautiful book. It has little popups and envelopes to open.
And finally, do you guys know about Lush? It's been my obsession for years. Solid bubble bath and bath bombs, unique and delicious soaps. It's an extremely innovative and fresh company but it's a little costly. I didn't technically get any Lush for Christmas... I had bought a ton of the little gifts to give to friends and had two extras in the end. Naughty naughty me... I opened them! I know, that's so bad. But I am an addict who needs help :)
They're even filled with multi colour old fashiony packing peanuts! I love!
Now that all of that materialistic stuff that I love so much is out of the way, I have one really big New Year's resolution. It's extreeeeeemely important and I think it should be everyone's resolution. And it is:
Be my own best friend. Protect and love myself. Don't let anyone who doesn't have my best interests at heart into my life. Do what I want to do and what is best for ME! Stop trying to please everyone and make everyone happy, there's such a thing as being nice, then there's being a doormat. It's a fine line between the two. I want to love me and ALWAYS do what is in my own best interest.
LOADZA LOVE FROM ME AND MR. G!
