Twinkling Trees: December 2012

New Year, A New Me?

Posted by: Kimberly Renee on 12/31/2012
2012 has come and just about gone for me. 
I've learned quite a bit about myself, people, and life in general throughout the year and all of it is going with me into 2013 to make for a better everything. (I hope)

New Years resolutions. 
It seems that no January 1st is complete without them. 
Every year I make them & at some point in the beginning I break them. 
Well this year is going to be different. 
There are so many things that I have planned for 2013 that I am determined to stick with my resolutions. 

GLOSSYBOX December 2012 - USA

I have wanted to try GLOSSYBOX ever since I watched a friends video on YouTube about what she got in her box. 
Since then I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival to the United States. 
It took me a few months to finally purchase a subscription because of the price ($21) but on Black Friday they sent out an email with a discount and I jumped at the opportunity. 
After receiving this box I am so glad that I did because I absolutely love what came in it.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. 
I had meant to post this a long time ago since this happened on the 15th and it is now the 29th.
But with the holidays & I catching the cold that was going around I took a bit of a break from posting to recoup and enjoy. 

 The city of Henderson had its annual Winterfest over the weekend of the 13-15.
We missed it last year but I was happy to attend it this year even though we left during the parade.
It was freezing & the parade was taking forever because no one could keep up with each other. 

Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays

My lil dude & I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. 
Our home has been filled with love and laughter.
I hope everyone else around the world enjoyed the same.
May you all feel peace & joy. 

Happy Holidays

Do you enjoy making Christmas decorations because I sure do. There is nothing like going out and buying the items that I personally like and creating something special myself and that others will enjoy. And that is exactly what I did the other night finally after having bought the items a week earlier. I am so happy with how it came out that now I want to try making more with different items.

Tis that time for my monthly box from Birchbox of beauty samples.
Since it is the holiday season I think I was expecting samples that were more holiday based.
Maybe a green or red polish or something sparkly.
However, a few of the samples I did receive I am excited to try out.

Homemade Advent Calender

I just love advent calenders.
My love for them has even been passed on to my son which makes me happy. 
Just like me, he thinks it is fun to open the little flap and find the prize inside. 
He's even impatient when it comes to waiting until tomorrow to open the next one. 

This year I wanted to do something different rather than buy one from a store. 
I wanted it to be special and have better chocolate inside. 
So I sat down last night (a few days late I know) and created this.

Even though Sunday was extremely blustery, my son and I took an adventure down to
The main reason for going was so that I could get a special kind of chocolate from Whole Foods.
We were walking from the bus stop to go across the street but my son persisted on going through the parking lot. 
I am glad he did.
