christmas feelings & presents

Christmas has been lovely, I don’t want it to end! Even though the weather has been the worst possible for Christmas (rainy and grey), I’ve still managed to find the real Christmas feeling with all the traditions. On Christmas Eve we went to the church, met some relatives, ate a lot of good Christmas food, listened to old Christmas classics, watched the traditional Christmas TV-shows, changed presents with my family, and then some more eating and relaxing. Apparently I had been good this year since I got some presents too!

Joulu on ollut ihana, vähän surullista että kohta se on ohi! Vaikka sää onkin ollut kaikkea muuta kuin jouluinen (vesisade+harmaus) on silti löytynyt joulufiilis, ehkäpä kaikkien perinteiden ansiosta. Aattona katsottiin telkasta perinteiset Joulupukin Kuumatlinjat ja muut, käytiin joulukirkossa, tavattiin sukulaisia, syötiin paljon jouluruokia, joululaulut soivat taustalla, vaihdettiin lahjoja, ja sitten vähän lisää taas syötiin ja vain oltiin. Ilmeisesti olin tänä vuonna ollut kilttinä kun tuli niin kivat lahjat!

On Christmas Day we visited a hospital in Tampere to see my grandpa. It was a little bit hard, but it was good to visit there. On the way back I just kept thinking about life and getting older and keeping close to important people and things that keep you alive, both physically and mentally.

Joulupäivänä käytiin Tampereella katsomassa vaariani sairaalassa, se oli vähän raskaampi reissu, mutta tärkeä kuitenkin. Paluumatkalla autossa vain mietiskelin elämää, ja sitä miten tärkeää on pysyä kiinni siinä elämänilossa, niissä asioissa jotka pitävät elossa fyysisesti kuin henkisestikin.

To lighter things! Today on Boxing day I’ve been in pajamas almost all day, we kind of had enough of Christmas food and ordered pizzas. That’s another tradition for us.

Mutta vähän kevyempiin juttuihin! Tänään tapaninpäivänä on tullut oltua koko päivä melkein yöpuvussa, jouluruoista saatiin jo tarpeeksi ja tilattiin pizzat, hah! Eräs traditio meille sekin.

^ The presents I got

Tällaisia juttuja lahjasaalissa tuli

presents-11

Sex & The City, all the seasons, and the new Bridget Jones book

Sinkkuelämään kaikki kaudet ja uusi Bridget Jones kirja

presents-8

Sweater, chocolate and socks

Neule, suklaata ja sukkia

presents-10

presents-5

Strawberry shower gel and body lotion

Mansikkasuihkugeeli & voide

presents-2

Present from myself: golden leather Bobbi Brown makeup box. I LOVE this. I’m always afraid when I’m carrying my makeup on trips etc that they’ll crash, this will keep them safe!

Lahja itseltäni: Bobbi Brownin kultainen nahkainen meikkiensäilytys-boxi. Oon aina peloissani kun matkustan ja pakkaan meikkejä laukkuihin että ne murskaantuu, niinkuin välillä käykin, mutta tässä ne ovat turvassa!

How was your Christmas? (Sad to ask it this way, I want to believe it’s still continuing!)

Kuinka teidän joulut meni? (Tai meni ja meni, kai se vielä hetken jatkuu!)

    Christmas in Spain is continued … until January 6th because here tradition is that gifts are given by “Reyes Magos” (Magic Kings, Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar) who come from the East on the night of January 5th

    Lovely presents you got; Marianna! 🙂 Hows the new Bridget Jones book? I’ve heard so many good things about it. My christmas was lovely, I got money for my Stockholm trip next month, a beauty case for my travels and chocolate.
    Now I won’t eat at least until New Years Eve, haha. But I agree, christmas without snow sucks 🙁 hopefully next year will be better! 🙂

    Could you please tell where are your bracelets are from? I’m sure I’m not the only who’s curious about it!

    Lovely presents, especially that Bobbi Brown make-up box! I’ve been wanting that one for months 😀 I hate it when me make up is mixed and messy.
    My Christmas was great! I’m in North Italy for the moment and it snowed all day today on the second Christmas day. The perfect end of Christmas! Plus my boyfriend surprised me with 2 amazing presents, I couldn’t be happier!

    Love x Sara

Ihanan tyttömäinen ja rentouttava blogi sulla! <3 pss. Naked palette ah! Itteeni kiinnostaa se #3 mutta taitaa vieläkin olla loppu nettikaupoista.

    Greetings from your favorite place in the whole wide world: NYC… It’s past midnight out in New York and thought to myself: “I wonder what’s been going on with Marianna? I miss seeing her smile.” And here you have me! Lucky for me your Xmas post included a pic of you smiling… you looked gorgeous BTW. I’m only a little disappointed that this is as far as I can go to try to connect with you, since I have no other alternative to reach you, and sadly you don’t seem to be interested in anything that I’ve ever mentioned to you. You seem very sweet, down to earth, dedicated, are very smart ,and need I say pretty? That I don’t want to give up in trying to win your trust and friendship, why don’t you help me with that decision sweetie? It’s up to you, if I continue moving forward or not. I wish I could only know if I’m bothering you, you don’t care… are confused?? or actually like what I say to you. Which one is it? A smile say’s you like what I’m saying to you, haha. *wink*

    Unfortunately for me, Santa didn’t bring me one of the things I wanted for this Christmas, your friendship… Guess I was a little of a bad boy! Haha. But I’m very happy for you and all the wonderful presents that you got, yes you’ve been a very good girl and you deserve all the nice things that you received. Your friends and family must think the world of you. But it’s not just your close loved ones that think that way, a lot of people outside your personal circle also do, like myself and all your readers for example. We adore you! 🙂 Keep being the sweet and beautiful girl we have grown to love. And show that beautiful smile of yours ever so often.

    BTW, I’m really sorry to hear about your grandfather, I wish for nothing but the best for him and your family.

    Take care of yourself, Marianna.

    Jay

    Your christmas seemed lovely! I spent a lovely time with my family! For the first time my grandpa wasn’t there in the evening because he was in his house for elderly. It was hard too, but it’s the life. Unfortunately.
    Excepted that, it was great! The presents I received are amazing and I enjoyed like every year giving mine and seeing the smile on the faces!
    Have a lovely weekend!
