Vlogidays: What we got for Christmas 2014!

Tuesday, December 30, 2014


Hello friends! I hope you guys all had a wonderful Christmas. I am not a huge fan of showing off gifts in videos but I know a lot of you guys are interested in seeing them. So for no other reason I am showing you some of the items Scott and I received. Jackson got a lot of video game stuff that I am not sharing and Brittany got a lot of girly stuff too. Some of the items I got other people are in the other vlogidays vlogs so be sure to check them out if you want to see more gift ideas.

Everything is in the video and if you want to find something I showed, the links are below to what I could find.


If you are looking for anything I showed you in the video, here are the links that I could find! 

Cuisinart CBK-200 2-Pound Convection Automatic Breadmaker: I really was against bread machines until I got older and kneading bread became painful for my hands. Scott found me this nice machine to make the job easier! I have already used it a couple of times and it did a great job. But I do have to learn to use it for everything it can do! 

PARIKHS Round Cut Diamond Stud Popular Quality in 10-14k White & Yellow Gold: I wanted more earrings that I could just leave in all the time. I don't like to wear dangley kind of earrings on a daily basis...they just get on my nerves. So the boys found a pair of pretty diamonds that I can just leave in all the time. 

Celestial Dreams Women's Long Sleeve V Neck PJ Set Who doesn't love a comfy pair of pj's!? I sure do and I will wear them all year long. I loved the pink plaid but what I really love is how soft they are. I think they found my particular set at our local Walmart.


Taylor Swift Eau de Parfum Spray, Taylor, 3.4 Ounce: I don't use a lot of parfum but normally at Christmas Scott tries to find me a scent that is not too strong. I get migraines easily so I have to be careful. This year he got a Taylor Swift parfum that has a light fun scent that I really like! 


Josie Maran Beautiful Drems Agran Hydro Collection : In addition to the wonderful cruise from my mom and Don, she also picked me out this Agran Hydo Collection from Josie Maran. I have never used it but really excited to see how well it works for me. I couldn't find the full kit but the link will take you where you can find everything that I got.


HALO Women's RFID Wallet & 3000 mAh Portable Phone Charger: Leave it to my mom to find the cool gifts! She found this wonderful charging wallet that can charge 2 items at once. It's sleek and I have already tried it and it worked great.


New Beauty Test Tube: This gift from my mom and Don was right up my alley. I had never tried New Beauty Test Tube. This came with some amazing products to try out....and I can't wait!


Buddy Pouch: I thought this was a silly mom gift when I first saw it. I thought fannies packs were out but when I looked at it a little closer this is a wonderful way to carry things under clothes as well as out in view as well. Perfect for anytime you are going to be out and about at night or when hiking or working out. I will totally use this! 

Dammit Doll: Here is a funny gift from mom! She thought this would be a great way to relieve some stress. Its super funny and now lives on my desk!

Shutterfly Mousepads: Shutterfly does a ton of great holiday gifts. Mom got some custom mousepads that have our family picture on. Another custom gift that I love.

Orgami Owl Necklace: My sister started selling custom Origami Owl jewelry. She made me a beautiful necklace and I think as we go into the new year, I might just have to make a bracelet myself! 


Love this Life Bracelet  My best friend got me this beautiful friendship bracelet that I totally love. I couldn't find the exact one I got, but the link will take to you to a bunch of these pretty bracelets.


Aqua Owl Spoon Rest&Aqua Owl Utensil Crock: My sister in law found these amazing owl kitchen items. I love world market and had never heard of them before and now I will be shopping a lot more with them! I got the spoon rest and utensil crock that already have a place in my kitchen.

Bath & Body Works Forever Red PerfumeBody Lotion: Our friend Jeff got me a Forever Red Perfume and lotion. I was nervous this is too strong but it smells amazing and not too strong.


Sweet Night Owl Design Manicure Set: My sister in law knows I love owls and thought this would be great to be able to toss in my purse or even my nightstand. I love it!


Here are a few of Scott's gifts. 

Oscar Pour Lui 2pcs gift Set for Men by Oscar De La Renta: Scott loves to smell good and got a lot of cologne for Christmas. This was a gift from our friend Jeff. It smells amazing. 

Assoriment of smuggling items from smugglebooze.com: On our last cruise my sister and Scott both smuggled booze on our cruise. And it was in scope bottles which I guess was awful. This year they figured out a new way and she set Scott up! She also gave him a bunch of lighters....which is kinda like a inside joke!

Fierce by Abercrombie & Fitch; I think this cologne for Scott was from my mom. I think she got him the same thing last year and he loved how it smelled, so he got it again! 

Armani Code for Men: This is the cologne I picked out for him. It smells amazing and I love it. 

Mesmerize For Men Cologne Spray: His sister got him a ton of Avon Cologne and this one smells the best! I love it and so does Scott. 

Rhodium-Plated Checkered Cuff Links & Tie Bar Set: Our friend Jeff got him these cuff links and he also got us a clock and some kind of sleep machine. It was totally unexpected but very kind.


I even got a few Christmas gifts for myself! Here they are!

Thirty- One Large Utility Tote w/ Lid : I had to have one of these after my sister in law showed me hers. I bought the lid too and have used it since the moment I got it. Its a total love for me.

Thirty - One Canvas Crew Carry-All; I decided to get one of their canvas carry alls for anytime I need an extra bag. Both are personalized and I plan on getting more!

Thirty - Large Owl Zipper Pouch: I bought one for myself at Thanksgiving and my Trina gave me 2 more for Christmas. I love these. Right now the owl pouch is sold out but Trina has 2 for sale if you are interested. Just shoot her an email @ bgt8ird@gmail.com if your interested. 

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Complexion Starter Kit: I really wanted to try this so I thought why not. I do like it but I can seriously find basically the same thing at the drugstore for a fraction of the price. I like it though and will continue to use it.

Owl Handbag: I saw a cute owl purse in Cato's and loved it. All though I couldn't find my exact purse the link will take you to more owl purses that are totally cute!

 I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the items we got for Christmas. We are truly blessed to have such amazing family and friends. I would love to hear about your favorite gifts you got or even gave if you want to share!

I hope you have a beautiful new year.
