Archives For christmas presents

I was very spoiled this year both by people close to me and friends from around the world. As I love reading others posts about the presents they receive over the holidays, I decided to do one of my own. It’s not to brag or anything, just to show my appreciation for the gifts I received from the most wonderful people. My family doesn’t really believe in gift giving so this is the most I have received in about ten years so the feeling of being spoiled is definitely there. It might not be a lot to others, but it is to me. We have a very small family so there has never been an abundance of anything. Anyways, this is what I received!

I ❤ Makeup – Death By Chocolate Palette.

Actually finish Christmas shopping. I’m awful at procrastinating and year after year I find myself somewhat prepared for the holidays but there’s always a present or two that I end up forgetting to purchase. It’s so annoying because I only seem to remember when there is very little time left to get it done.

Keep up with exercising. I have been exercising regularly, or well, an hour of fairly intense exercise about two times a week for the past month and I can already feel that I have more energy for things. I just hope I can switch some of my diet with lower calorie options too to help boost a possible weight loss. It will be difficult to pull off during the Christmas holidays but I will try my best. The only day I won’t restrict myself is Christmas eve.

Sending the Christmas cards I’ve written for family and blog friends. With our post office being closed for a bit and me having to buy a new car because mine had rusted to death, I’ve had to postpone sending out cards for a bit, but hopefully I will be able to do so as soon as I get my next paycheck on December 12th.

Continue my low-buy period. I have been better at not spending money on unnecessary things or too much food. My wallet is happy and so am I so it’s a good thing. It also gives me a push into using up everything I have already instead of constantly buying new things. Better for me and better for the environment.

What are your goals for December?
