See You Next Year, Blogmas + What I Got For Christmas 2016


I’m Just Average Teen Me. Christmas Day has passed, which is obviously a little heartbreaking, but it also means that Blogmas has come to a close too. I really enjoyed getting into the festive spirit here on the blog, and hopefully, you all enjoyed reading them just as much! Thanks a bunch for being supportive of the posts!

So, onto today’s post. Since Christmas was just two days ago, I thought I’d share some of the things I got for Christmas. It might strike you that I’m not the most stereotypical teenage girl (if you hadn’t already got that), so I won’t be rambling about eye-shadow palettes and fancy new shoes.

Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit

Although my Harry Potter obsession has died down a slight bit over the last seven years, I still do, and will always love it. I don’t think there’s been a year since my love for the stories began that I haven’t had something related to Harry Potter for Christmas. Anyways, I’m super excited to play this, especially with Rachel, who’s the biggest Hazza P. fan I know.

A Box of ‘Girly’ Stuff

So, I think this is the point where my mum has no idea what to buy, so she just throws some bits and pieces into a tin. Inside was some pocket tissues, nail polish, ‘spot zapping gel’, stick concealer and a peel-off Cucumber face mask (which I have used before, and I absolutely loooooove).

Moto E3

My phone was slowly dying, and the contract ended this Christmas anyway, so I kind of knew that I’d be getting this phone, and had chosen it between the two options I had. It’s the third generation of the previous phone I had, which was the first generation, and there’s definitely been some improvements! It also came with some big, over-ear headphones which is nice! 😀

OUAT Season 5 DVD

You’ll more than likely know that I’m a huge fan of OUAT (Once Upon A Time), and I currently have all of the seasons available on DVD. If you have spare time over the holidays, I definitely recommend checking it out! 😉

Infinity Rises and Infinity Reborn – S.Harrison

In March, I was given the first book of the Infinity trilogy for my birthday. The plot had me hooked throughout, and I contemplated buying the next books with my own money, which is pretty big since I hate spending it unless I need to. I ended up waiting until Christmas, and I’m so freaking excited to read the last two books!

Fifth Harmony 7/27 UK Tour Poster

I’m not sure this counts as a poster, since it’s cardboard, but it has a picture of the 7/27 album cover, with all of the UK tour dates beneath, the whole thing surrounded by a thick black border. It’s pretty niiiiice, and I just need to put it up on my wall!

A Truckload of Chocolate

Over the entire Christmas holidays, I’ve been given insane amounts of chocolate, and I worked out yesterday, that in the last 4 days, I’ve eaten over 3000 calories of just Lindt Lindors, excluding any other chocolate! Talk about food coma! 😀

Mermaid Tail Blanket

You might remember that this was on my Christmas list this year. It’s basically a woolly blanket in the shape of a mermaid tail, so you put your legs inside, and feel like a mermaid. Mine is a blue/turquoise colour with hints of green, white and orange, and it’s super pretty! 😀


As Grandma always does, she bought us a few sets of pyjamas for the next year. I will admit, she allowed us to choose them ourselves, so I went to Primark with two of my sisters (one older and one younger) and picked out three sets. I prefer it that way because I knew that I’d love them! ❤

That’s most of it! What did you get for Christmas?

BYE! 😀

Goodbye Blogmas! :(


I’m Just Average Teen Me. So, blogmas is over… Thank you SO much for all being so supportive of the idea! I had an amazing time writing all the Christmassy posts (even though it did sometimes get difficult every day!) I’m really surprised that I managed to post one everyday! I didn’t miss a single day! I hope you all enjoyed reading them as much as I did writing them! ❤ I guess now we’re back to normal then… So, weekend, Mondays and Thursdays. I didn’t actually do the weekend post (I’m really sorry – with Christmas being recent and all, I didn’t really have the time) but I’ll be doing Monday and Thursday for sure!

And maybe one tomorrow?

Anyways, onto today’s actual post! So, it’s after Christmas, which means I’ve opened all of my presents. And I thought it would be fun and interesting for us to talk about what presents we got!

First of all, I don’t think any of my presents are ridiculously expensive, I didn’t get anything crazy or extravagant! So… yeah!

Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver

This is a book, based on the TV show Once Upon A Time. But it didn’t really happen in the TV episodes, I think. It’s about Red Riding hood and her ‘Untold Tale’. Duh, clearly what am I on about 😀 I’m useless at explaining this… I’ll just copy the back (it’s quite long…)

The hooded cloak was made of rich red fabric, a lovely brocade on the outside and lined in lush velvet. I stood and tried it on, loving how the hood draped over my braids and the cape flowed so regally to the ground.

It’s Wolfstime, the foreboding period around each full moon when villagers must protect their homes and families against the giant, ferocious wolves that roam the forest. On the day Red turned thirteen, Granny gave her a special red cloak upon which a spell had been cast to protect Red from the wolves.

Red is now sixteen and is desperately trying to fit in among her peers, save Granny’s failing bakery business, and, of course, protect herself from wolves. Her crush on Peter and her determination not to let the mean girls sabotage her blossoming romance cause Red to make some questionable choices.

Will these choices let the wolves in? Will Red pick the right battle? Will her skills be strong enough to keep her alive?

Actually, that was a lot longer than I thought it was 😀 Sorry about that!

Brunette Ambition by Lea Michele

As some of you may know, I did ask for this in my Christmas list. I finished reading it yesterday. And the whole thing was amazing ❤ I did actually give a description of this book in my Christmas List post so you can go on over there if you want to read it!

Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming by Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D. & Howard Rheingold

Okay, so my mum knows that I would love to be able to lucid dream so she bought me this. Crossed fingers it’ll help me!

Once Upon A Time Seasons 1-4

They didn’t come all together actually… It was season 1+2 together and season 3 and 4 separate boxes. Actually, my Grandma bought me season 3, but all of the writing is in French! YAY! Typical Grandma 😀 The actual thing will play in English though, so I’ll be fine

DVD Player

This is only because the Once Upon a Time disks won’t play on my Tv’s disk drive thing… They’re American so it won’t work properly but the DVD player will make it work

Once Upon A Time Hoodie

As I’m writing this, I’m wearing this hoodie. It’s black with gold writing saying Once Upon A Time. It’s SO cosy and warm ❤

Swarovski Crystal Earrings

These are SO pretty! There are loads of different colours, so I’ll tell you what they all are. Dark purple, dark blue, light blue, light pink, orange, green and white/clear. SO pretty!

Glee Season 6

Now, my glee box set collection is complete! 😀

Door Stop

Finally! My door won’t shut when I don’t want it to! YAY It’s green and says STOP

That’s pretty much everything! What did you get for Christmas? I’d love to hear in the comments!

Thank you SO much for reading! Make sure to like and follow if you like my blog and leave any thoughts or suggestions in the comments!
