My birthday gifts πŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰πŸ’– I had a wonderful Birthday/Christmas! I want to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday!

I mentioned that every year my mom and I have different ornaments to represent different people/things etc. This ornament is special to me because butterflies can represent hope, endurance, and life. This ornament is so beautiful.

Thanks Rowena, and Happy New Year! It was quite magical indeed. I love all my gifts, but the memories are so special to me! I love having personal significant ornaments on the tree! A very meaningful tradition!

Pilar said...

Thanks Allie, and Happy New Year! The tradition of the ornaments does make one think of the meaning of Christmas. I think that it's a good idea to have these types of traditions! They create so many beautiful memories!

Pilar said...

Thanks Marie! I did have a wonderful birthday! I took a nap shortly after I took that selfie lol! I slept a good bit on my birthday because of the cold. I'm feeling better though! I'm so happy to have the James Charles Palette! I haven't used it yet, but I'm going to create some looks soon! My mama gave me the palette for my birthday! She got it when Ulta restocked it, I think a week or so before Christmas.

Marie said...

The James Charles Palette is a popular palette right now! When I went to Ulta it was sold out! I can't wait to see your makeup looks!

Gingi said...

Is your birthday ON Christmas Day?!?! Thats crazy!! Do you get double the presents? hehe! Also.. we are the same age, how cool is that?! <3 -

Pilar said...

This palette sells out so much! I'm glad that Ulta and restocks it regularly though! It may take a few weeks at a time to restock, but the wait isn't too long! I hope you can get a palette soon!

Pilar said...

My birthday is on Christmas Day :) I get birthday and Christmas presents. I wouldn't say double presents, more like separate gifts! I remembered that you're 33 too!
