Even though today is December 30th (or so the calendar says..), it is still December 25th in my mind. The entire month of December is like Christmas to me; it’s such a fun season! Maybe that’s the reason why I’ve been MIA these past couple weeks, just lost track of time. Orrrrrr I’ve really been under the weather, as that seems to be the most likely scenario right now. Despite all of the holiday cheer, my immune system just couldn’t hang. 😦
Christmas! Sweet, glorious Christmas! A holiday full of family, friends, food, and gifts, what could be better?! Us Southern Californians got a wonderful gift this holiday- cold weather! While it might be 33 degrees and snowing in Wisconsin, it’s brisk 62 degrees here, with the temp dropping to 38 at night. 😮 If only we could get some rain..
Besides the holiday cheer and chilly atmosphere, I personally had a lovely Christmas. Usually my father works Christmas Eve/Christmas Day, but he took the week off this year so we could all spend time together. My friends and I did some holiday shopping and binged on Christmas movies, my mother and I drove around our entire county to look at the pretty decorations and lights, and on Christmas Day we opened presents and had a wonderful family dinner. I couldn’t have asked for a better holiday. Hopefully yours was just as lovely! ❤

Lastly, a WordPress upgrade.
I now have my own website! Also, I got the “U” back in “Glamour”! (Even though you can spell it without the “u”, about 90% of the population use “glamour”) This is all so exciting, I can’t wait to update everything and start posting more content. There’s a stack of beauty products to review sitting on the floor next to my desk at the moment, so expect lots of reviews! 😉
Once again, I wish you a Merry belated Christmas, and a Happy New Year. See you in 2016! ❤
