I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas (if you celebrate the holiday :) filled with fun times with loved ones, lots of food, & of course gifts! I was spoiled once again, got way more than i deserve - but i appreciate it all. I was considering doing a 'Christmas haul'/'what i got for Christmas', but it would take a lot of time trying to photograph what i got & i don't want it to seem like i'm coming off as bragging. Let me know if that's something you'd like to see.
Christmas Eve was just a relaxed day with the immediate family, including church, opening presents, and watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (it's a classic in our house!). Christmas Day, we had part of my mom's side of the family over for a late lunch and conversation (and more presents).
One of my gifts from my parents was a lovely new phone. I was between the Blackberry Bold & the HTC EVO, but ended up getting the EVO - i'm kind of glad i did! I took some pictures on it since i got it last Wednesday, so i thought i'd share them with you all :). I'm actually surprised by the quality of these photos! There's two cameras on this phone, one on the back & one of the front, kind of like the iPhone 4 i suppose. Hope you enjoy :)
Rings i got while shopping for gifts / list of posts & videos for me to do
Presents ready to go under the tree! / gifts for two of my friends all wrapped & pretty
Grenade by Bruno Mars <3 / oh hey Gaga! - this sticker came with the Viva Glam Gaga lipstick my sister got me :)
Pleathura of yoga DVDs my sister got me, as well as Vampire Diaries season one, & a Marie Claire subscription / trying to pick an outfit for church
More indecision! Ended up going with the outfit on the right, but with flats instead of the boots.
Christmas tree :) / Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex - yes, i actually asked for this game (from 2001, i might add) for Christmas! Brings back memories haha.

Quite sad Christmas is over! Well, kinda - i still have to exchange gifts with my friends & i have another Christmas party to go to on New Year's Day. Can't believe 2011 is SO close D: Still have to figure out my plans, yikes. All i know is that i want to wear some flashy makeup & party party party!
What are you all doing for New Year's / what did you do for Christmas?
See you all soon, xoxo
