Welcome to the third post in the Createyou86 New Year, New You Blog Series. I know that we have been away for quite a while over the holidays. Both James, and myself have been very ill. We are still pretty sick, but i wanted to keep getting out posts for all of you! This will be the final post of this series, and we will keep them coming for February.
Do you enjoy the new look of our site? There might be other changes as well, but we are looking for a different vibe for our site. Please feel free to let us know what you like, and what you don't. E-mail Us!
I hope that everyone's holiday was great. I wanted to show a few of my favorite gifts that i received.
1. I needed (well....wanted!) a new planner for 2016, and i had never tried verticle planning so i asked for a MAMBI Happy Planner for Christmas. Mostly because Erin Condren is just too pricey for my liking, Michael's is right down the street so i don't need to wait for weeks of shipping, Michael's was having a 50% off sale, and i always have discount coupons.
2. Not only do i love planning, but i love video games as well. One of the most anticipated games this year was The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I waited for months to be able to get this game, and I got the special edition from James for Christmas along with the game guide. (He just knows me!) We have an Xbox One system, and everything is amazing about this game in my opinion.
Here is a bit about the game:
Played in a third-person perspective, players control protagonist Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a witcher, who sets out on a long journey through the Northern Kingdoms. In the game, players battle against the world's many dangers using swords and magic, while interacting with non-player characters and completing side quests and main missions to progress through the story. The game was met with critical acclaim and was a financial success, selling over 6 million copies in six weeks. The game won over 200 Game of the Year awards from various gaming websites, critics, and game award shows, including the Golden Joystick Awards and The Game Awards. (Info from Wikipedia).
3. Lastly I had mentioned that enjoyed the adult coloring crazy to someone, and they happily obliged me for a Christmas present. I don't fully understand the paying $10.00-$20.oo for a coloring book, when the exact same result can be received from a normal child's coloring book (which you can buy from the dollar tree FOR $1.00!) There is research that states so. Nowhere does it say that there has to be crazy designs, it is just the relaxing act of coloring in general. (I have literally seem $15.00 & $20.00 coloring books which i scoffed at.) Here is the one that i received.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of some of my favorite Christmas Presents, and that maybe you got some ideas for upcoming birthdays, or holidays! We also hope that you have enjoyed this January Blog Series, and that you are looking forward to February as well. We have a lot of great posts coming up (and we hope to start feeling better as well so that we can get back to posting regularly!)
What was your favorite present from the holidays? Let us know in the comments below!
I am not a paper planner person, I don't have time for video games and coloring gives my hand cramps...which is why it is so good that there are so many different people in the world. I am glad you are enjoying your gifts. My "big" gift that I love, is a yoga set. I have a bad back and really want to start working on exercising again. Yoga allows me to do just that, without the strain on my back. I got the mat, blocks, strap, and a bag, all in purple. With having 3 boys, anything that is a girly color is a treasure. :) I hope you feel better soon.
