Christmas is GONE!!!! I can't believe all the work and emotion we put towards two days!!! I miss it already...now I just have to wait 365 till next Christmas...But at least I can now enjoy my Christmas Gifts, the ones I have been waiting for a whole month...I have been really nice this year and Santa was pretty good to me...I'm really thankful for all the gifts my mum gave me...they were exactly what I wanted and even more...so here you have them...I hope your Christmas was as good as mine or even better...

Hope you enjoy...

Christmas Wish List

Christmas is just around the corner!!! Just 4 days away and I couldn't be more excited!!! This time of the year isn't just about the presents but everyone has to admit that it is really great to unwrap gifts and find out what treasures lurk under the tree. Since I was little, I loved to tear the wrapping paper in pieces even if the gift wasn't for me...I'm that kind of weird ;)

So, this year I decided to compile a list of some of the things that I would like to see under the tree. Obviously not all the things in here will be my gifts, perhaps just one as I don't actually ask that much of my mother, but I though I would share just a bunch of ideas that I really like or just random things that I found browsing through the web and that I though would make cool gifts.

I hope all of you have a very good and joyful Christmas, with lots of gifts and sweat treats but especially with all your family and closest friends, for the best thing that Christmas brings is the shared memories. ENJOY!!!!
