What I got for Christmas 2013 (+Giveaway winners)

So... Christmas was 7ish days ago. This is definitely a late post, but really - when have I ever been on time for anything? ;o; Eeep.

I hope you guys had a great Christmas (or if you don't celebrate it, a happy and restful winter)! I'm just dreading the day when I have to go out and trudge my way to school again. 
So FWP, eh?

I was actually very, very lucky this year and received a lot of presents and love from my family. We went to Cabo for winter break, so I got to spend a lot of time with them and it was definitely nice to chill after being so crazed. 

Anyways, today I have a "What I got for Christmas 2013" post for you. These posts are honestly so popular and everyone does them, and I also have a personal addiction to reading/viewing them, heh. I'm just generally a really nosey person in general. You too? 

Let's get on to it! 
(Giveaway winners will be at the bottom of the post) 

MUFE HD foundation, shade n120 
One of my aunts gave me some money to buy myself a MUFE HD foundation, so thank you! My other bottle was getting a bit too old, so yee. This is the shade N120, and the only foundation that I really, really, really like. 

Thanks to my brother, who got me this Clarisonic Mia. I had really been wanting to try one, and my skin's been being "meh" these days thanks to the Winter weather. I've used it once so far, and its so... interesting! o__o 
I like the feeling of an oversized electric toothbrush on my forehead, yes. 

(By the way, sorry that some of the pictures look too dark and gross. It's next to impossible to get good lightning for me these days. T__T)

Next up - a Marc Jacobs perfume!
This is the Daisy eau so fresh one. I don't wear perfume and I used to find it way too much of a hassle to remember to wear it, but omg. I love this so much. ;o; I luuuuurve it. 

When I was opening this, I thought it was the pale yellow one, but bam. It was the "Fresh" version! They smell exactly the same through, but I like this one better now, hehe. 8D It comes in a big bottle (4.25oz), so I know it'll last forever and a half. It smells fresh and flowery, but not "old lady". 
Me likey. 

From my grandparents (mom's side) I got this notebook! I absolutely love this special, special present. When I was a baby, I used to spend the most time with my grandparents while my parents were at work. I'm quite close to them. 

I remember walking home (aka grandparents house) from kindergarden with my older cousins, and we used to chase and corner the chipmunks near their house. 
They were terrified; and we were delighted by their terror. #meanchildren

My grandparents had a huge backyard, so in the wintertime we used to rush out and make snowmen. We used my grandpa's golf clubs as the snowman's arms. They were long. 
...random memories, yeah. 

In the notebook, my grandma wrote a letter to us (she gave a notebook to each of her grandchildren), and my grandpa was the one who typed it out on the computer.
I love them so much, man. I'm telling ya. 

I have an obsession with Forever21 socks - they're so cheap, but ARGH they're so adorable. Why are they so adorable? F21 has a huge selection of these socks, and I kid you not - whenever I go to the mall, I always end up picking a new sock. 

One of my cousins, Joy, got me a whole hoopla of them... plus 3 mini candles from Bath and Body Works! The socks are absolutely adorable. The burger and the fries... rainbow stripes... owls... meow cats... anchors... and fuzzy sleepy socks! SOCKS SOCKS SOCKS. 

My dad got me this pretty Tiffany and Co. necklace for Christmas. I had really been wanting this specific necklace for the longest time; I had stalked it on the store website for months, just to look at it... lol. 

My dad's a person who has absolutely no interest in fancy shmancy stuff, hates wasting money on fancy shamancy stuff, and hates buying new stuff. (Ex: I had been looking to buy a watch lately, and he's like "what do you need a new watch for? You have that red Roots watch."
...I got that watch in 3rd grade. And it's kinda broken... o.o

So it was a surprise that he'd actually get me this necklace. He handed it to me and said in his usual gruff way (in Korean) "be healthy", lol. 
Gotta love my pops. 

This year was definitely a strangely surprisingly nice Christmas. My dad was on a curious roll. He always grumbled about the $10 aviators I wore all the time, going all "your eyes are going to get bad". So when we were flying back to Toronto, he picked up these Ray Ban aviators for me as a Christmas present. 
(I'm not sure what the exact model name is, sorry about that! I'll edit this post when I get back home to see.)

I really, really like these sunglasses a lot, and now my dad and I can be sunglass twinsiiiiiees! ^o^ (He has an old pair he got a long, long time ago... when he was my age or something.)

For Christmas, my mom got me a new backpack! I had really needed a backpack for the longest time, but I never went around getting it. I had been lugging around those huge Longchamp bags to school, and let me tell you - that's a perfect way to screw up your arm. It kills. 

My mom didn't like those 2 strap Herschel backpacks, thinking that it looked childish, and she liked this plain one, heh. Thanks, ma! I'll be a jolly good studious student with this backpack~

I'm sure I'm not alone, but I LOVE getting new school supplies. 

So I'm super excited with this and packing it up already haha (school doesn't start for another week and a half or something). 

My mom also got me a pair of leather Sam Edelman boots, but I haven't been able to picture of them. (It's kind of difficult to go home lately, so yeah.)

Taaddaaa, I got a new watch! 
As mentioned before, I've been looking for a watch for a long time. People had given me gift cards to stores throughout the year, so I gathered enough moolah to get a one for Christmas. This gold Michael Kors watch is so pretty, and I really like the simplicity of it. ^__^ 

I'm kinda terrified I'll break it or something, it's still in it's "new and shiney" state right now... heh. 

And lastly... an elf present from me to myself! Elf was having one of it's crazy sales (50% off) and there was free shipping with orders of $35+. So me and 2 other friends combined our orders. 

This is the first time I've ever actually owned an elf product for myself. The price itself was "OMG worthy". 

I bought: 
1. A brush holder ($15)
2. A brush set ($15)
3. A "Little black beauty book" 48 eyeshadow book ($6)
4. A tweezer ($1, not shown)

Honestly, the eyeshadows are a little "meh". 
But because there are so many colours and because it was cheap, this will be awesome for those "gonna eff up my face today!!!!111!!!!" days. (days to experiment with crazy looks, to play with, etc.)

Though it's pretty pricey, the brush holder is really nice! As far as I could tell, it's decent quality and feels really sturdy. 

The brush set... hm. It's okay. I haven't really used the brushes yet (I stick to my beauty blender), but just bought this set on impulse. It's not amazing, but I guess it does the job. $15 for a whole set is pretty good. 
(It does have a "polluted factory" smell, though. I can't stand that. Bleh.)

Well, that's that!
Other family members gave me money for Christmas, and I'll spend some of that on a future haul to share with you guys. ^_^ 
Though I wasn't able to show everything I got, I'm super happy to finally share this post with y'all!

Giveaway winners 
I'm sorry I wasn't able to announce the winners beforehand, but here they are: congrats, guys! 

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Surprise winners!
While the giveaway was going on, it got me thinking: because this is a raffle giveaway, it's not garunteed that my actual readers will win my giveaway. Someone random could just pop in, enter a quick entry, and win - and loyal readers (who read, comment, etc.) are left with a lesser chance of winning.

In addition to the 2 winners of the "1000" giveaway palooza, I'll be gifting 2 more people! Though the prize isn't as large as the original ones, you'll be getting some of the same stuff! I hope it shows how much I appreciate your support and love. ^_^ (And your lovely comments, teeheeheebedeehee)

The 2 "surprise" winners are: 
- Anna (; Tonymoly "blackhead out oil gel" egg + sheet masks
- Wai K. (; Tonymoly bunny mist + sheet masks

Thank you guys for always commenting nice stuff on here, and just generally being 2 awesome people. 
I'm actually really genuinely happy that I met you guys, and hope that we'll all blog and be happy together for as long as Blogspot exists bwahahhahaha. 

I'll be surprise-gifting people in the future as well - there's too many of you wonderful people out there! ;o;


What about you?
What'd you get for Christmas? (Clothes, electronics, makeup, etc?)
What'd you do for the winter break?


  1. Ah, you got so much awesome stuff. I am LOVING the Tiffany's necklace. Such a beautiful choice. <3
    Congrats to all the winners! :D

  2. Oho silly dad :D (also, 'kinda' broken? idk man, it's either broken or not, ya know)
    + omg, your grandparents are too sweet! :') (I've been eyeing the same notebook in blue for the longest time now, hah)
    Anyways, I hope you had a Merry Christmas/Happy New Year/all those shenanigans! c:

  3. Great stuff! Santa was good to you this year :) I adore that gold Michael Kors!

  4. Wow, you got a whole bunch of amazing stuff! :D
    Congrats to the winners! :)

  5. what lovely gifts you got for Christmas!
    & a happy new year to you! :D

  6. My dad hates spending a lot of money on "useless" things as he puts it (in other words fancy expensive overpriced things) so I can not even imagine getting something from Tiffany's. But that necklace is soo pretty! Haha I also like receiving/buying school supplies too for some reason.

  7. Everything that you got are so amazing! I love most of it :)

  8. Congratulations for the winners!

    Happy new year, June! Omg you got real amazing stuffs, the necklace is so pretty, I love your watch too, and the socks are adorable and Clarisonic and akskdfldf

    Aaaahh your grandparents are so thoughtful, what lovely gift!

  9. Congratulations to the winners! :D You were so lucky to get all that wonderful stuff! I look forward to reading more of your posts in the future! ^_^

  10. omg so jealous of you!! Lots of great stuffs you got here! :D The necklace is so pretty XD

  11. Wooowww you got so much for Christmas! Lucky you! :) That tiffany necklace is so beautiful!

    Would appreciate if you checked out my blog :)

  12. You got great gifts!! Have a great year with lots of stuff! xx

  13. someone has been really good last year ahahaha wow you got lots of amazing presents :)

  14. Amazing loot!! It totally need to try that MUFE foundation this year! And I'm so jealous of that T & Co necklace and those candles! Do use those shadows, I'd love to see what you come up with!

  15. I really love the necklace! It's so pretty ><


  16. What an amazing Christmas haul! Probably the least fancy thing in the pile, but those socks are so funny, haha. I have one of those ELF eyeshadow books and while they aren't the best ever, they come in handy for those rare moments when you want to use a really weird color (matte marigold yellow, anyone?)

  17. 10$ aviators ;____; Here they cost a fortune! they are neve less than 65-70€ (Actually, that's what someone ask me to fix a pair of lenses, because someone broke my dad's aviator glasses and he said I could get them if I fixed the lenses)
    Ohhh that Clarasonic, OMG OMG <3 I wanted one, but it's quite expensive here (like 150 euros if I'm not mistaken? I would only get it with the seasonal 20% off Sephora offers sometimes, otherwise I won't be able to get it) And the Marc Jacobs Perfume, omg <3
    Anyway, Happy New Year!!
    Take care, have a nice day! Oh and congrats to the winners :3

  18. I love your new watch! It's so pretty and I've always admired Michael Kors watches^^ Thanks for sharing your haul June, and I hope you had a Happy New Years! x

  19. Lots of stuff xDD And good stuff!

  20. you got such awesome things <3 haha we have matching sunglasses XD

  21. Junnipie! You got a tremendous amount of Christmas gifts, so that would mean that you have been good this year. ;) Hehehe~ The Michael Kors watch is a real beauty and I was smiling the whole time when you mentioned your dad. How cute is he?! xD My dad is the opposite haha, he would go to stores with me and buy it on that spot, so there's no real surprise. T-T I bet your skin will be very happy with Clarisonic Mia! Very kind of your brother to gift you that. :) One of my favorite perfume is the Daisy as well! I have the original version and it has been my signature scent for awhile too. ^^ And I like the way gift from your grandparents a lot, it's so touching to receive such a warm gift. <3 For the ELF brushes, I'm actually very fond of the Blush Brush and Powder Brush. :) I use them when I apply blush & bronzer.

    Lastly, I totally did not expect to see my name there on the Surprise Winners. ;___; Thank you so much, you really did surprise me there! I think you're really awesome as well and I'm glad we met. <3 Hopefully we will be able to meet irl and hangout! :) Thank you again! Also, congrats to the winners who won! ^^

    P.S. I changed my name to my English name, Chloe since I think my chinese name is a hassle to write and to pronounce. xD

  22. I got a TOOOOOON of chocolate for Christmas. I swear my parents are trying to make me fat. OTL
