Anyways, on to the pretty stuff I got for xmas. Just a heads up, I don't exchange presents with every single family member (like brother, brothers in law etc..) and don't exchange presents with every girlfriends (because we do secret santas within different groups of friends so that's much better =D) oh and lastly, because bf and I are trying to save up money for our future and since we don't want anything (materialistic) this year we decided to not spend money on presents and save it up for future needs. We stayed home on xmas day, made diiner and watched a couple of reallly good movies the CLICK, and a chinese movie called Yip Mann (chinese translation of the name). This is a Chinese Kung Fu movie based on a true story. Yip Mann is the Kung Fu Master/teacher of Bruce Lee. It was such a goooood movie!! I loveeeeee it!!...wowww I am so OFF topic.. opps
Ok here we go....
Sorry about the picture, it won't upload right -_-
Anyways, this was from my lovely sister =D. She went on a cruise trip before xmas and she brought me gooooooodiesss from the cruise and I was so happy to see baby lips =O. I wanted to try this a while back as well as the Revlon lip butters but lip butters are rare to find in stores here in Canada =[. This wasn't my xmas gift (we actually didn't buy each other anything =P) but was a souvenirs. I thought might as well include it into this post since they are makeup =D. Thank you sis!!, love everything! The lipstick is soo pretty on too!^^

This is what my sister-in-law bought me and what I got at their xmas party during a xmas exchange =D. I loveeeee MERCI chocolate, it comes in so many different flavours and I just love their packaging, it's almost like a wrapper u find at a pita shop. The top half of the chocolate wrapper will rip off while the other half will stay on =D. Thank you sis for getting me soo much!! I didn't even buy you anything! =[. I couldn't find the bamboo decorations that you wanted from IKEA =[. Maybe I'll get you a hot pot stove/pot set =D. I know your house is lacking in one ;) (I'm writing as if she's reading this but I swear she barely knows about my blog =P)
This next gift is also from a gift exchange from the same party that my brother and sister in law hosted =D. This is what my bf got but I stole it from him MUAHAHAHAHAA^^
