good morning everybody and welcome to
Kristmas Day one I hope you guys enjoyed the intro
there’s a lot more fun to come and in store during the Christmas season so get
excited you’ll also see some new elements throughout this video and at
the end that all kind of play up the spirit of #Kristmas I love I
have been waiting for this all year long and for a while there I didn’t know if I
was going to be able to do it I just didn’t know like I like I told you guys
earlier I was kind of in a place where I was not really interested in vlogging
and I had it kind of an existential crisis about it but goodness that crisis
has passed right now I’m gonna do one of my favorite things of the holiday season
which is to make myself a coffee. so guys right here I have two mugs to show you
the Ember mug and the Ember travel mug and I think since I’ll be at
home, I take the other one to work, and I am going to make some caramel…
coffee I guess? or whatever so what is new guys I put out quite a few videos in
the last week before Kristmas started a bunch of you may have noticed that but I
had a bunch of content scheduled and… what am i doing what a salted caramel
this looks like a little liquor bottle doesn’t it
I bought this set of monin syrups and you don’t bought it online do you ever
buy something online and I was like oh this is really really small so yeah
these have lasted me like just about three drinks it was complete waste of
money but oh well a lot of you guys ask what are my favorites right now I’m
loving these I don’t know what they’re called but they’re on the website I
think they’re limited edition I also like the Cioccatino and the Parisian one
I typically go for the limited edition versions just cuz I’m I can’t ever get
the skin but they always end up offering them on sale not on sale but they always
end up sending I’m on my replenishment order so I’m
like Willie how limited-edition are you all righty so I picked up my dry
cleaning now I’m gonna go drop off a return to UPS an Amazon return and then
I’m gonna go get my lashes done! Alright y’all, I’m done getting my lashes filled! I also had them dyed which is also really nice thing you can
do at Winx you can have your lashes dyed and then have your extensions put on
as like a refill or new set or whatever and I think it just makes your
existing lashes kind of stick out more and everything looks a little bit fuller
especially if you don’t already have naturally dark lashes which most of you
do but for someone like me who is a natural blonde it is very I think I’m
going to come back for a half hour appointment next week just to get them a
little bit more full because I loved it so long last time that they don’t like
they don’t don’t lash until the time is up soon you know you’re not kind of
limited to a certain number of lash extensions now it’s time to go pick up
some lunch for the fam and I’m going to go there’s a cookbook that goes along
with they try to prejudice book and it’s written with recipes by a Martha Stewart
it’s so cool I’m picking up the Magnolia table by
Joanna Gaines and I’ve got a couple other books here that I’m gonna buy so
here is the lunch I picked up from cafe Express and then before I jump into that
I’m going to show you what I picked up this is my own book I was reading it in
the car um I got this one which I’d been wanting to read it was recommended to me
by a patient that I was talking to because we were talking about how much I
love books about world war ii and she said this was really good so this is
definitely gonna be a good read and then this one was the one she was reading and
I asked her about and yeah so it seems good I don’t know which one I want to
read first but let me know if any of y’all have read this
this is something I picked up for hp’s stalking so you can’t I can’t talk about
it right now cuz he’s over there and then I picked up this which I’m just
finishing up I just finished reading the last of the trilogy and then I’m
finishing up the last hour on the audiobook of the also astrology I read
it and listen to it every single year it’s my favorite series I will leave
that link down below but I finally stumbled upon upon this book in the
bookstore it’s been out for a while but I just never picked it up cuz I didn’t
know if it was worth it but yeah seems really cool I don’t know we’ll see I’ll
get through it probably hi come here Pooh! Pooh okay everybody it’s time to do a little

  1. I am so excited for this ๐Ÿ˜ ps Iโ€™m thinking about buying Alexa and all things that go with it just to turn my Christmas lights on ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ„

  2. Discovered your channel couple months ago and have been enjoying watching all of your videos. Thank you for doing all these while juggling work and baby.

  3. I do love your intro. It made me smile and that's been hard for me to do after breaking both my knees 7 weeks ago. ๐Ÿ™

  4. I love the intro! I live away from my family and the beginning of xmas season always makes me homesick, but vlogmas helps me get excited for xmas and get in the festive mood. Merry Kristmas!!

  5. Oh my goodness! So exciting!
    A. How do you have time to do EVERYTHING? I think you must have more than 24 hours in your day! I am always so inspired to read more when I watch your vlogs.
    B. I absolutely adore your Enthusiasm for the season. It is really contagious and what a great way to start the holiday season
    C. Harper is getting so big!!! I am so happy we get to see her and HB. (Please tell him hello, I met you two in San Diego last year at a meet up and so enjoyed talking to you both.)
    And D. I just LOVE advent calendars! I have 2 this year but think I may need to get more next year. Lol. Such good ones!

  6. That intro is EPIC Babe!! Your vlogs are the best ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป I appreciate all the hard work you put into your videos โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

  7. I havenโ€™t watched in a while, due to having a 1+ year old BB of my own, but didnโ€™t want to miss Kristmas. Just wanted to tell you ,You look amazing. Youโ€™re mommy glow- up is great! โค๏ธ

  8. I never comment but just wanted to say I am really enjoying your vlogmas every year and your videos are my favourites:) You get me into the spirit of christmas!

  9. Kristina, when you said, 'Alexa turn on the Christmas lights.' My Alexa said, OK and turned on mine. HAHA I have the same set up! LOL

  10. The Nightingale and Lilac Girls are both amazing books. I couldnโ€™t put The Nightingale down it was that good. They will both make you cry. I hope you enjoy them.

  11. Such a cute video. Love that you were watching one of Jen's videos in the background during one part. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Iโ€™m behind watching vlogmas (donโ€™t judge-I like to savour them!) and at 16:30 I was reminded of something I love, love, LOVE about Kristmas: when you DESCRIBE the smells of candles, perfums, etc. You describe what it reminds you of and what it smells like. For me, it almost always spot on. Loving day 1 on day 4. Iโ€™m catching up now!!

  13. EEEEKKK!! You're doing vlogmas! SO EXCITED! Also, I can just stare at Harper while she's doing her own thing. She's just too adorable ๐Ÿ’•

  14. I may need to stop watching this in my bedroom as my Alexa just switched my Christmas lights back on when you switched yours on (itโ€™s gone 11pm and I had switched them off to go to bed) ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

  15. Last year I followed your Vlogmas/Kristmas. It was the first Vlogmas I ever watched. I was Soo addicted. I couldn't wait for day off from the hospital to catch up on this year. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  16. HOLY COW! Youโ€™ve totally stepped your game up this year!
    I absolutely love both the intro and the exit!
    Really, really nice job!!

  17. Merry Christmas Kristina & Fam! <3 your videos. Your daughter is getting so big already – so cute! I canโ€™t wait to watch another year of Vlogmas! XO Stephanie

  18. Oh this video was so much fun to watch. I couldn't start watching your vlogmas videos until today — I spent last weekend grading 360 papers! The life of a teacher. So this weekend is Kristmas Vlogmas Marathon!!!! So, glad you chose to start vlogging again.

  19. The Nightingale is my most favorite book and Lilac Girls is amazing too. I read a lot about WW2 history and by far the Nighingale is awesome also the Tattooist of Auschwitz is amazing as well. Happy readying and thanks for the dose of Harper she is a doll. Beautiful family you are blessed.

  20. Kristina, I am so happy to see someone else read the Lilac Girls, as I am currently reading the book. Next on my list is The Knightingale, which I also heard amazing reviews about. Can you please let us know your thoughts or review on both books?

  21. Oh I LOVE! The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah! I wound up giving my copy away to a client of mine which I regret a little bit so I can't re-read unless I buy again… but its always great to share good books!

  22. I bought The Nightengale (and The Lilac Girls) for my mom this Christmas and she loved it! Thanks for the recommendations!

  23. I'm a newie and the first video I saw of your channel was when you announced you were going to suspend for 6 months, so this is a surprise. I have caught up with some of your other ones since then, and was left in a cliffhanger when your small white dog was ill. I see her in this video, so I'm relieved she survived.

  24. Okay so that whole shot of putting Harper in the chair and the bib, makes me tear up itโ€™s so precious! I found you only a week ago and Iโ€™ve been binging ever since! I have a 6 month old baby girl and I canโ€™t wait to see her do the same things Harper is doing now ๐Ÿ˜

  25. It's July and I'm watching all your Kristmas Vlogmasโ˜บ๏ธ Hehehe I feel the same way about Christmas! โค๏ธ

  26. I have asked 3 times about the Christmas give away you had in 2019 i watched every video of yours for years i watched every single day in 2019 fo3 months waiting for you to announce the winner never saw it i asked 3 times if it ever happened and never have got an answer
