Holiday Break

I’m currently back in school, enjoying learning but still wishing I could have stayed home longer. I really should have gotten more outfit pictures to blog about; we’ll have to settle with what I have for now. (Oh my, I started this post in January and still haven’t finished it. It’s already April…)

First is where I went over the holidays. My mom and I like to take pictures with the mall Santas, and we like to take “road trips,” so we went to Shorehill Mall for these!

I think we had to walk through a Nordstrom to get into the rest of the mall. I saw this cute little snowman and immediately knew I needed a picture!

Going into the actual mall we passed by a bunch of nicely decorated stores. The one that really caught my eye was the Ralph Lauren store because the mannequins had teddy bear heads! I wish I could’ve gotten better pictures but there were so many people around I was afraid to get in their way or not be able to even get a picture. There was also a super cute bear sweater for little boys in there. It looked like it could have fit me though… Unfortunately the price and the time kept me from getting it. If I find it again I may get it…

This was the outfit I wore to take pictures with Santa. As usual, my posing skills are awful, but I made an attempt and the fake snow looked really cute. My mom and I were so happy that the Santa was sweet and didn’t mind her taking extra pictures with her phone. I now know that I really like the Santa at the Macy’s in New York City and the one at Shorehill’s Mall.

Although this was technically done after Christmas, I went on the Polar Express after years of wanting to experience the same fun from the movie. It was really exciting, but the ride itself was honestly pretty disappointing. The hot chocolate wasn’t really even warm and the ride must’ve been too short because they couldn’t really fit much of the story in. Also, we couldn’t take any pictures with Santa even when he passed by to hand out bells.

It’s alright though because I was still so happy! I even named the little penguin that my Grandma had given me years ago; it’s officially Pepe and the staff was kind enough to give him his own ticket and bell! My mom also got some really pretty mugs from the trip. They’re great for making your own hot chocolate.

Some time during the break I went to iHop with my cousin and ordered this cute snowman pancake breakfast. I decorated him myself, but he kind of looks like he got a nosebleed…

On to some gifts! This is something I’ve been wanting for maybe a year or two and first saw on Modcloth. It was great for my friend’s ugly sweater/birthday party and definitely not flashy enough where it can’t be worn other times. I still wore it past Christmas!

Next are some bows (yes, more bows) from a sweet girl I met recently on Instagram. Her username is eumoir and I’m not even sure how I found her page, but I saw that she was donating bows and asked if I could have the Adventure Time one. Lucky me, I was able to get another and they both came in time for Christmas! Her style is also really pretty; whoever reads this, please go check the link on her name for her page!

I gifted myself a beanie from Love Your Melon in my favorite color. They donate half of the money you spend to cancer research! It came with a personalized Snapchat filter, but I don’t have a Snapchat… The hat itself is very warm though, a perfect size for my head, and I ordered a reflector patch so I could also wear it at night without worrying too much about cars.

I was so excited to get something from Marzia Bisognin‘s clothing line! I’m only showing the label now so I can make another post and review about it later. (It also came with a heat projector for your hair but I don’t straighten my hair anymore so I gave it to my mommy.)

My daddy got my an Osumashi Pooh-chan lucky bag for Christmas! I will also show what was in here in separate post because it’s a lot.

Then, my big sister (not related but I love her lots) got me the cutest stationary ever for school! It was a great present because I actually needed new books and a folder for the new semester. Gudetama is the best, so I was especially happy to see a folder COVERED in his lazy self.

That’s it for now! I’m working on more content so hopefully an update will be coming soon. How have your holidays and breaks been? Anyone have spring weather yet?
