Hey, my loved ones.

It’s day 12 of Blogmas, I’m Shabria if you are new to my blog. And if you are not, thank you for returning!

On today’s blogmas post, I want to share to with you my favorite winter/Christmas scents from Bath and Body Works. Now, right now Bath and Body Works is having a sale on 3 wick candles for $12.95, room sprays for $2.95, their wallplug refills are 5/$23, and for limited time only on select body care buy 3, get 3 free. But Bath and Body Works always has great sales and deals every single day, if you aren’t already, sign up to their email newsletter to be alerted and for their coupons. Since, that I dropped the ball on that I really hope you take advantage of the sale.

The winter/Christmas scents I want to share with you from Bath and Body Works, smells so amazing! 

-Winter Candy Apple | This is one of my favorite winter scent. It smells like candy and apple just like the name of it.

-Champagne Toast | This is my second favorite winter scent, it smells like berries and tangerines with hint of champagne. 

 -Spiced Apple Toddy | I brought this as a mini candle last year and I really liked the scent. It reminds of a baked cinnamon apple, it really smells delicious but it’s very strong.

-Fresh Balsam | It smells like a Christmas tree, so if you have artificial tree this year. Use this fragrance to add the realistic of the tree.

-Blueberry Sugar | This scent reminds of a sweet blueberry pie.

-Hot Cocoa & Cream | This scent smells just like hot cocoa & cream. You can smell the milk chocolate and vanilla. 

So, those were my favorite winter/Christmas scents from Bath and Body Works, there’s plenty of other scents I definitely want to try and I will get my hands on them real soon. What are your favorite winter/Christmas scents from Bath and Body Works, I would like to know in the comments below.

Thank you for reading day 12, much love and happy holidays.

How Do I Get Into the Christmas Spirit | Blogmas Day 11 🎄

Hey, my loved ones.

It’s day 11 of Blogmas, I’m Shabria if you are new on my blog. And if you are not, thank you for returning!

On today’s blogmas post, I want to share with you on how do I get into the Christmas spirit, especially where I live. Okay, I’m not sure if I mention where I live already but I live in Las Vegas, NV, so we don’t get traditional winter weather. Right now, as I’m writing this the weather outside is 64 degrees F / 18 degrees C, it’s both sunny and cold. I’m really not complaining about this type of weather, I really love it; I mean it beats being hot and miserable during the spring and summer. But anyways, here’s how I get into the Christmas spirit:

First, I put up my Christmas decorations in my bedroom. I brought some decorations from Dollar Tree and Target’s Bullseye Playground. I only decorate my bedroom because my parents and my younger sister aren’t fans of holiday decorations but when I get my own place, I’m decorating the whole place LOL.

Next, I pour some caramel crunch n munch (the family size box) in a bowl and make some hot cocoa with crushed candy cane sprinkled on top, watch some Christmas movies on either LifeTime, Freeform, Netflix, or Hulu. And let me tell you, I can watch Christmas movies all day maybe for the whole year.

I listen to some Christmas music while I’m reading a book, getting ready for the day, or just whatever. I also have a Christmas music playlist on my Youtube channel, if you like to listen search under ‘Ms. Shabria Gxo’ and click on ‘My Christmas Vibes’. 

And, I put on my Christmas socks that I get from Dollar Tree and Target’s Bullseye Playground for a $1. But I really wished I had more money, so I would’ve brought some Christmas pajamas and sweaters also from Target and Walmart to match with my socks. 

Sometimes, I bake some chocolate brownies and sugar cookies but not from scratch. I’m not the best baker LOL.

Sometimes, I would burn a Christmas candle or plug a wallflower plug refill from Bath and Body Works. I’m currently plugged in Winter Candy Apple wallflower plug refill, it smells so good!

All of this Christmas stuff puts me in the Christmas spirit and it’s very simple. Yes, it does make me happy and cheerful during the Christmas time.  

I would like to know how do you get into the Christmas spirit, please leave your comment below. 

Thank you for reading day 11 of Blogmas, much love and happy holidays. XO Shabria

My Winter Essentials | Blogmas Day 10 🎄

Hey, my loved ones.

It’s day 10 of Blogmas, if you are new to my blog, I’m Shabria. And if you are not, thank you for returning!

On today’s blogmas post, I want to share with you my winter essentials with you. My winter essentials are way different from your winter essentials and I really love these items in my life during the winter season.

So, here are my winter essentials:

-My Portable Space Heater | My parents purchased about 4 space heaters on sale. So, if my room gets super cold I just turned it on whatever level I want it on and wait for my room to get warm and toasty. And, if I get too hot, I just turned it off. 

-Nestle hot cocoa with mini marshmallows | Yes, I use hot cocoa mix because I’m not a great cooker LOL. Sometimes, I like to use either lactose free milk or water in my hot cocoa. Then, I sprinkle some crushed candy cane on top.

-My Fuzzy Blanket | I don’t have a Christmas blanket but my grandmother brought me a M&M blanket and it’s very soft and keeps me warm.

-My army green bomber coat | I got this bomber coat from Target and it was on sale, it’s from the brand Mossimo. It’s very cute and comfortable and it has faux fur around the hood of the coat.

-Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion | This lotion is my favorite during the winter season, it definitely adds the moisture back to my skin and my skin loves it.

-Champagne Toast and Snowy Morning fragrance from Bath and Body Works | Let me tell you, both of these fragrances smells so good! I only get the Champagne Toast scent as a hand soap, body spray, and wallplug fragrance. And I only get Snowy Morning as a body spray, I really wish that these scents were year round but they’re not.

-My Christmas Music playlist | If you haven’t read my favorite music songs, then please do! 

-My Christmas movies | And if you haven’t read my favorite Christmas movies, then please do!

-Proclaim Coconut & Macadamia Nut Oil Hand & Body Lotion | I saw this hand lotion at Sally’s and I wanted to give it a try. This lotion is very moisturizing on my skin and it doesn’t have greasy residue. And yes, this lotion is now my new favorite!

-Clapstick Lip Scrub | I received this lip scrub in my Target beauty box and I gave it a try. I really like it, it how its very gritty enough to remove the dead skin off my lips, so that’s a plus for me. I don’t moisturized with their lip balms, I just use my cocoa butter vaseline to moisturized my lips. 

-My Aeropostale Pullover Hoodie, Sweatpants, and Sweatshirt | OMG, all of them feel so comfy and keeps me warm from the fleece inside of them. However, both the hoodie and sweatshirt is tight around my bustline but I try to make them work. 

-My black fuzzy slippers | My mom brought some fuzzy slippers one year from Walmart and I took one of the pairs. They feel really soft and comfy to wear during the winter season. 

Okay, those were my winter essentials. I would like know what are your winter essentials as well.

Thank you for reading day 10 of Blogmas!

Much love and happy holidays, XO Shabria

How To Be Holiday Stress Free | Blogmas Day 8 🎄

Hey, my loved ones.

It’s day 8 of Blogmas! I’m Shabria if you are new on my blog and if you aren’t new, thank you for returning!

So, during the holiday season can be very overwhelming to deal with — with shopping, parties, and everything else in between. All of that can be stressing and you will feel exhausted and maybe a little snappy, but I know how you can be stress free during the holidays. There are a few tips but they’re very easy to remember. 

  •  Calm and Relax Your Mind | Mediating is very essential who are stressed out and overwhelmed with everything. It takes only 10 minutes of your day, just turn off your devices, put some relaxing meditation music, and start mediating. 
  • Do Some Light Yoga or Exercise | If you can after the end of your day, do some yoga or exercise at home. This will ease some tension in your neck or shoulders and this will help you sleep better, this will only take 10 minutes.
  • Drink Some Tea | When I’m stressed out, I drink peppermint, chamomile, green tea to relax. 
  • Practice Conscious Breathing | Busy shopping malls and emotionally challenging family members can jack up our anxiety. So, the next time you feel your stress level rising, just stop and practice conscious breathing. Take a couple relaxing breaths by inhaling through your nose to the count of 4, holding that breath for 7 seconds and then exhaling through your mouth to the count of 8. Do this as much and as often as needed. 

So, those were my tips on how to be stress free during the holiday season. I really hope that these tips helped you out and you can use these tips year round, if you want to.

Thank you for reading day 8 of Blogmas!

Much love and happy holidays, XO Shabria

My Christmas Pet Peeves & My Christmas Wishlist | Blogmas Day 6 & 7 🎄

Hey, my loved ones.

So, I missed day 6 of Blogmas *my bad* but I’m combining day 6 and 7 together. If you are new to my blog, I’m Shabria. And if you are not new, thank you for returning!

So, first I want to share my Christmas pet peeves and later my Christmas wishlist with you. So, I’m going to start with my Christmas pet peeves:

  • People who check and tell the prices of gifts |  This is one of my pet peeves, I don’t like it when people look up the price of their gift or tell the person on how much they spend on the gift.
  • People who aren’t appreciative with their Christmas gifts 
  • People who tell kids there’s no Santa | Okay, you’re probably like “seriously, you believe in Santa?” No, but if a little kid believes in Santa let them believe. 
  • Rude customers and employees | Not just during the holiday season but year round. 
  • Holiday Grinches/Scrooges  | This is my second Christmas pet peeves. I get it, people don’t the holiday spirit after losing someone during the holidays, but I don’t like when they take it out on others for no reason. 

So, those were my Christmas pet peeves.

Now, I want to share with you my Christmas wishlist. The one thing about me is that I’m very indecisive on what I want especially for my birthday and Christmas. I’m more like ‘just give me the money and get it myself’, because I’m thinking that they probably will have a hard time finding what I want, so I just do it myself or I’ll just save the money for a rainy day. But, I do know what I really want:

  • 3 pairs of jeans | I really have to try them on because it’s very hard to find jeans or pants in my size.
  • unicorn mug | I love unicorns and mugs
  • skincare and perfume gift sets
  • girly kindle fire hd 10 tablet case
  • princess jasmine and tiana disney funko pop

That’s what I want for Christmas. Like I said before, I’m just going to ask for money and I will get it myself. I hope my Christmas wishlist gave you some gift ideas for you or your loved one.

Thank you for reading, much love and happy holidays. XO Shabria.
