What I Got for Christmas & My Birthday 2016

Christmas and New Years Eve are but a distant memory by now but as usual, I still wanted to share what I was given for both occasions (NYE is my birthday).  Plus I love reading posts like these so hopefully you do too!

First up, goats.  A 2017 Goat Wall Calendar AND a Screaming Goat Figure.  When you press down on the base, the goat emits a high-pitched bleat.  Amazing. Favourite gift of 2016 for sure.

Next, I was spoiled with Saje gifts.  So happy to have this diffuser back in my life!  I’ve been using it non-stop since I got it, particularly because I’ve been plagued with the flu and it’s been helping me breathe.  I also received this Holiday diffuser set that includes minis of Peppermint Twist, Tree Scents and Celebrate.  I suffer from regular headaches due to our constant weather changes here and so Peppermint Halo was high on my list so I was super happy to receive this. I’ve been using this a ton too and LOVE it – totally takes the edge off and helps me relax.  Lastly, a tube of their Tingle Lips lip balm which I’m really impressed by – it’s so creamy and moisturizing.

I always get a pair of cozy pjs every year from Reitmans, some bath bombs and a bottle of my favourite L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil.  Also, it’s hard to tell from this pic, but that is a colossal tube of LipSmackers Dr Pepper lip balm (4 times the size of a regular one – aka a Dr.Pepper Biggy lol)!  Which is really exciting because they are proving very difficult to find around these parts recently so that should last me a good long while.

Keeping with the cozy theme, two B&BW candles (Evergreen & Cinnamon Caramel Caramel – both smell awesome).  David’s Tea Sweet Indulgence Set which includes a variety of 12 mini tins of tea.  Oh and a snow globe – I received one last year too so I think I might start a collection and ask for a new one each year.

I also received a plethora of gift cards – a bunch for Sephora (woot!), a SHOP! gift card, one for Starbucks and one for Chapters/Indigo.  Now to figure out how to utilize these (shouldn’t be too hard 😉 )!

What did you receive for the holidays?  Let me know below and/or link your blog posts for me to read below!


  1. LOL, I never realized you were into goats until now! Love it!
    The Saje diffuser looks most excellent. I’ve been wanting a diffuser for the longest time, but it’s not really something I would spend my own money on, and I never remember to ask for one for birthdays/Christmas 😛
    the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil is still on my wish list!
    Happy (very very) belated birthday!
