I was very fortunate to get some really AWESOME presents this year. Here they are, and there are a few more to come. My boyfriend and I exchanged late so those pics will be up soon. I hope santa treated everyone well:)

Some items that I opened to late to post are all gifts from my boyfriend - I'll post them later. They are:
-Tiffany's double heart necklace engraved with an "E"
-Missoni scarf
-Sparkly black Toms
-Arm warmers/gloves from Norstrom
-Engraved wooden wine opener
-A one night stay in my favorite hotel in London when he comes to visit in May!

He went WAY overboard.

A gift basket from my boyfriend's mom (she organized it when I thought I was going to study abroad in Paris. I decided on London though). Includes: a canvas purse, silver necklace, London and Paris guides, a Paris-themed notebook, nutella, croissants and a decorative bin.

The two books my sister got me to help prepare myself for my time in NYC!!!

Fun bauble necklace, new makeup brushes, Gap makeup bag and a NARS lip gloss - all from my mom.

  1. Wow. You really lucked out this year. Love those boots and gloves. I also got pepper spray from an over-protective dad. The only thing I don't like is the Chicago Cubs zip-up and that's only because I'm a Phillies fan. Merry Christmas!
