Blonde Side and Bestie Christmas Take 2

There is nothing better than the holidays because you get to spend time surrounded by family, friends and the people you love. You might remember the Christmas Exchange between the Blonde Side Best and me that I posted about last year. Well this year, in true BFF form we decided to continue our gift exchange tradition together. Of course it was also filled with lots of cookies too!

I cannot take credit for these. Thank you, Wegmans.

Let’s start off with some outfit details from the night


I kept it simple with a super soft grey dress and a holiday colored blanket scarf. I’ve linked similar scarves here and here. This grey dress was originally from Marshalls, but here’s something super similar.

In true bestie fashion, me and the BSB were essentially twinning, grey dress, black leggings and similar color blanket scarf in all.

I promise you that this was not planned. We just seem to have telepathy like that.

Before we started taking pictures, I let the BSB open one of her presents early because I figured it would be great for a photo op.

That’s right, I gave her some brand new Holiday Edition Kylie.


Pictured here, I am wearing the Holiday Lip Kit in Merry, and she’s wearing Vixen, and it looks amazing on her might I add!


There were also many other presents too.

After 15 years, yes 15, you think you would start to run out of ideas of what to get your BFF, because you’ve spent a decade plus worth of Christmases together, but we really had a great gift exchange this year.

Psst…anyone else notice that face popping out from the tissue paper?


It’s the Biebs! Because only your best friend would see a Bieber tee at H&M months ago and make sure she got it for you because you’re Bieber obsessed and it would make the perfect Christmas gift. #whatdoyoumean

She also got me the cutest desk easel calendar for my desk at my big girl job. She’s the cutest! I also got one more amazing gift which I’ll discuss below.

Here are all the goods I got for the BSB.


Included are New York drink glasses, a cozy infinity scarf, a Harry Potter coin purse/wallet, Bestie keychain (for her new car keys!), and this adorable plaid clutch/pouch.

There was also one more present for her too, which ironically was along the same lines of my last present from her. Ready….?

When you think you’re a mermaid, but your bestie thinks she’s Harry Potter.

Yep, you’re looking at us in all of our glory. The BSB knew how much I wanted one of these mermaid blankets, and I know how much she loveeees all things Harry Potter, so this HP throw was the perfect choice for her.

We finished the night snuggling on the couch in our great new gifts, and watching Love Actually. Y’all I had never seen this one. I know, I’m a terrible person, but I loved it and it’s up there as a holiday fave now.

3 days until Christmas! How are you all celebrating?
