Merry Christmas, Passionistas!

It’s Christmas Day!!!!

I must admit blogmas is a struggle. I started off strong but this season had been so busy for me that I miss and day of two.

Last year my family started the tradition of making gingerbread houses on Christmas Eve.

I purchased my Hershey’s kit from CVS for $7.99

I am a master at this …. look 👀

Christmas Party Decor

Happppppyyyyyy Saturday Night!!!!

Tonight, my family and I had a cute little snack and game night.

We played a series of minute to win it games and ate good food. The kids made ginger bread houses.

But I wanted to share the cute little dollar tree decorations I created…

I made these cute little DIY snow globes, everything purchased from the dollar tree.

I found these cute candle stick holders at dollar tree and loved them so much that I bought all that were on the shelf. They came in white but I spray painted a few of them silver for my the base to my snow globe.

Using double sided tape I taped the bottoms of a toy Christmas tree to the candle stick holder. I used a steamless wine glass as the globe- putting just a little bit of white confetti as snow.

So cute quick and easy …

You can also use a wine glass with a steam as a globe with a candle on top.

To complete my table decor, I used Garland and toy gift boxes, mason jars and candles, and candy canes.

Super easy and super cute!!!

Brunch with Friends

Helllloooooo !!!!

I know I’ve been missing for two days of blogmas. I’ve been busy with orders and shopping…🤷🏽‍♀️

But, I’m back now !!!!! 😍

I recently hosted a Christmas PJs Brunch with all my girlfriends. It was super nice! But of course – as the host, I did not get any pictures. What I can say is— we had a good time.

I cooked a really nice brunch. I made lots of mimiosas and we drank lots of mimiosas!

We played “dirty santa” and cards against humanity… so many laughs and memories made…

I did manage to get a few snaps with my polaroid camera for my next scrapbook..

Until next time 💝

Ornaments for Christmas (Blogmas Day 13)

Happy Blogmas Day 13!!!

Growing up my mom would buy special ornaments for me to put on the tree every year. It would always be of something I was interested in as a child. I loved that tradition and even now she still has those ornaments on the tree year after year.

As an adult, I now buy a special new ornament to place on my tree every year. Last year I was lucky enough two ornaments.

Belle from Beauty and the Best- which is my favorite Disney movie.

The 2016 Holiday Barbie- which is a gift I could expect every year.

This year it has been hard to find that special ornament. I mean I have been the the Christmas tree shoppe and multiple Hobby Lobby stores… nothing!!!

Today, I found one to my liking.

This year I graduated with my Masters’ degree- so this personalized graduation ornament is perfect for my collection.

Circut Project (blogmas day 12)

Happy Blogmas Day 12 !!!!

I decided to get creative with my Christmas spirit. So, I made these GRINCH inspired wine glasses. They will be the gift perfect for my friends – as we watch “Best Man Holiday” and sippin’ on red wine.

Thought I would share:

  • Jingle til you tingle
  • Sippin’ on Jolly Jingle
  • Go elf yourself
  • Cheers grinches

Xscape Concert (Blogmas Day 9)

It’s Saturday !!!

I am a weekend lover. Last night I went to the Great Xscape Tour to see- June’s Dairy, Zonnique, Tamar, Monica and Xscape. I have always loved Xscape- so seeing them in concert was amazing.

I missed most of June’s Dairy performance. But they need a lot of song covers- they opened the show. Zonnique did a good job but I didn’t know any of her songs. Tamar sung her face off as usual. But her savage time was a lot. She brought fans on stage and did a lot of talking about her divorce 🙄. I love Monica. And just like every time I seen her perform, she gave me chills. I have been a fan of Monica since a little girl when my mom used to play the Miss thing album.

<<<<
le have been talking about Xscape been off tune (mostly Kandi). But they sounded great last night. I was happy with the entire show.

Blogmas Day 3: Re-Gift & Play Dirty Santa

Merry Blogmas Day Three!!!!

 

My favorite game to play at holiday gatherings is Dirty Santa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Playing Dirty Santa is a great way to re-gift some of those not so great gifts you got last year and never used. Gather all your family and friends together for a little bonding time. Ask everyone to bring a gift. You can be as creative as you want with the game.

  • You can ask everyone to bring a $10 gift card
  • You can ask everyone to bring a gag gift
  • You can ask everyone to bring a re- purpose gift
  • You can ask everyone to bring a homemade gift

All gifts should be wrapped before starting the game. The players should not know what each gift is.


The more people you have the better the game will be.

I have been reading some of my followers and people I follow blogmas post … and I love the energetic spirits everyone is in. This is my first year participating in Blogmas, so I am super hype myself. Please continue to like, comment and share- I really enjoy reading and responding to your comments.
