Christmas in January {the gifts}

Heyyyy guys!

{how’s the new year coming so far?}

As I mentioned a while ago {or did I?} I wasn’t at home for Christmas. So my grandparents came down this week to celebrate with us. So we had Christmas…in January. πŸ˜€ Better late than never, right? πŸ˜‰

Oh, and I keep hearing bloggers saying things like: “I’m not trying to brag about what I got.” –or something like that. And I was like: “Would people think we were trying to brag?” —but apparently they must sometimes. So I will repeat along with my other blogger friends:Β I am not bragging.

In fact, until I read the other posts, it never even crossed my mind that people would think that.


It was given to me…

{inserts a Lord of the Rings ‘quote’ shamelessly πŸ˜‰ }

  1. I got a whole lot of socks.Β 

Now if y’all have read my about page, then you probably know I like socks. I like crazy socks, and I like normal ones too. πŸ˜‰ So I got a lot of socks.


2.Β I got some makeup-ish stuff.Β 

Just basic stuff, like those rubber band hair things, some lotion, mascara, and eye shadow. {I still don’t know how to use eye shadow, HELP!}


3.Β I got candy {which I PROMPTLY ate the same day}.Β 


4.Β I got this nice wallet…

It has a whole lot of nice compartments to put stuff in. Coins, cash, cards {not credit cards though πŸ˜› .}.


5.Β New batteries/charger for my camera.Β 

I am very happy for this stuff, {even though I already have two chargers and two batteries}…as I find it annoying to constantly have to charge both batteries. The amount I use my camera…I really needed new batteries {okay, I WANTED new batteries πŸ˜† .}. We will see if these batteries have a good life. Or if they’re dead after twenty minutes.


6.Β Lightscoop.Β 

look at that ugly flash photo. I did it to be ironic. The lightscoop is so much better.


This is something I’ve been researching and decided I wanted for Christmas for a little while now. It basically attaches to your pop up flash {ewww that pop up flash!} andΒ bouncesΒ the flash, so that the flash will be soft instead of harsh. It tends to make things warmer, instead of bright white. I love it. It requires a little experimenting, but I love it so far. You have to use it indoors for the most part {why would I want it outdoors anyway?} as itΒ bounces off the walls.
Most of the photos in this post were taken using the lightscoop, minus the two of the lightscoop.
7. Raspberry and Jordan.Β 
Apparently, my older brother told our grandma that he thought I would like this cow {who I named Jordan after a blimey cow youtuber πŸ˜† } for Christmas. And yes, it turned out to be just the sort of thing I would like. I have carried it around with me, {just to be funny πŸ˜‰ } and gotten quite a few jokes made at my expense. Jordan is the cow, to be precise.
Raspberry is a tiny beanie hippo which I found in my stocking. Isn’t she cute?
She’s a sad little creature who reminds me of Eeyore. Doesn’t her head look like a raspberry? It’s shaped like it, I think. πŸ˜€
Anyway, they’re both really cute stuffed animals and I quite like the joke. πŸ™‚ I shall close with this timie of myself {tripod selfie on a timer} that I took in front of our tree right before my brother hauled it off into the woods. πŸ˜₯

Did y’all have a good Christmas?
Do any of you still get stuffed animals every now and then?
Did you get similar stuff to this, or was it WAY different?
Where did you spend Christmas?
Was it a ‘normal’ Christmas for you?

  1. Merry Late Christmas! πŸ˜€ I spent Christmas mainly at my Grandma’s who lives the same place I do (or at least near me) It was a normalish Christmas XD

  2. Those are nice things! I got some of the same- LOTS of candy (which I probably ate too fast), mascara, boot socks… and other things, but maybe you saw my post with what I got, IDK. πŸ˜‰ My mom also ordered me a camera cleaning kit (yay!) which I got a little before Christmas, but I don’t know if that was really a Christmas present…? And I recently got a couple new batteries + charger, which my mom said she’d pay for! So I got camera stuff too, just for special gifts instead of Christmas gifts. πŸ˜‰
    Yea, I’m not sure if I know the real way to use eye shadow either? ;P If I do two colors, I usually just put the darker one on my eyelid and the lighter one above. I think it looks fine, so… ;P
    That lightscoop sounds nice!

    1. That’s funny! It does seem like we got similar gifts. I love ‘just because’ gifts. I really just like gifts for some reason. ❀ And as to the eye shadow…as long as it looks good…that's great! I don't know how to use it much, but it's sort of fun anyhow. πŸ™‚ <2

  3. Hee hee, this was so fun to read! Wow, that flash attachment must be great because the pictures are too. πŸ™‚ Also HA HA, that’s so funny about the stuffed animals (especially Jordan – I like Blimey Cow too!). One of my friends gave me an adorableeeee hedgehog stuffed animal for Christmas. πŸ˜€ It’s so cute!

    1. Thanks you, Allison! I love blimey cow too! And the flash attachment is really nice so far. Are you going to post a picture of your hedgehog? πŸ˜€
