How are you all doing? Good, I hope! In Sweden we celebrate on the 24th of December, instead of the 25th which is when they normally celebrate in the U.S. I had a really nice Christmas Eve. Our family got together at my big brother's house where we had typical traditions such as Christmas dinner and gift exchanging.
I worked really hard with the gifts for my parents this year, and they seemed to like them very much! Mom got a pair of on-ear headphones and a fashionable jacket, and my dad got a beard styling kit and a gift-card at Dressman. I just thought I'd let you know in case any of you want some inspiration for gifts whenever you need some!
As for gifts I received, I did not wish for much this year. But I still got a few little bits and bobs that I am very much grateful for! One of the things that I actually wished for was this microphone (Picture to the left). With this I will have better sound quality for my gaming channel on YouTube, and also for any videos that need voiceover on my main channel.
Otherwise I received some tea, chocolate and a blanket with sleeves on it, you know, that thing called a 'Snug-Rug'? Haha! It's actually very comfy and I have been lying wrapped around in it all day, watching Christmas films on my laptop. The latest one I watched was The Muppets: A Christmas Carol.
I must say though, I did have a little bit of misfortune yesterday. My new dress from Liz Lisa had its zipper separated over and over again, and it would only barely let me pull it back! As I tried, clumsy me managed to hurt myself on both hands badly. The rest of the day consisted of dropping anything I got my hands on to the floor, even my foundation that splattered all over my clothes! Can you believe it?! Maybe Christmas Eve is my Friday the 13th?
Still I managed to dress up quite nicely in some of my other clothes. The blouse, shorts and shoes were also all from Liz Lisa. (Maybe own a little bit too much from the same brand, haha!) But hey, it is my favorite brand after all!
I am a little bit bummed that I did not have a better camera with me, so that I could have taken better quality pictures. But do not worry! One I go home after New Year's, I will also be home with my precious camera. Exciting!
