Sinterklaas haul yeahhh πŸŽ‰πŸŽπŸ˜πŸ’ž

Hola lovelies πŸ’•,

Today I will share with you all a nice Sinterklaas haul 🎁. We celebrated Sinterklaas last Friday at my brother’s appartment with the family. It’s a typical Dutch celebration. I always am looking so forward to this celebration all year long πŸŽ‰. The official day of the celebration is the 5th of December but we celebrated it on the 6th. They say that Sinterklaas is a saint which comes from Spain πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ in a boat. If you have been a good child you would get presents. If not, they would make pepernoten of you which are some Dutch sweets and you would be put into the zak van Sinterklaas which goes to Spain hahaha. Some people make surprises on this day, hide presents and make poems. Our family just buys presents for each one of us. I’m excited to share with you all the amazing stuff which I got this year.

A yoga mat!!! πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ

Finally, I got a yoga mat πŸ™βœ¨. I’m so happy with it. I really hope to use it much at home. I love to practise yoga with Adrienne on Youtube. I have to do it more. I only took some lessons in my life and I really want to go to some lessons when I have more money. The yoga mat is pink and from a real Yoga brand. I don’t know which one because my brother and his wife didn’t told me hahah. It was a nice surprise. It was put into a big box of Samsung and my brother wrote Samsung unstoppable as it’s that slogan. I really do love this yoga mat as it’s beautiful so I really need to get myself on the mat now. My biggest inspiration alive is Yoga Girl 😍 and I love the Yoga Community. I hope to be able to go to one of her lessons and also go on a retreat in Aruba πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ό one day. This is already the first step in making my dream come true. Now, I want to practise it more and become better in it. It could also help me with my back pain and it’s so good for your mental health too. It would make me feel more calm like meditation also does.

Flow magazines πŸ“š

In the box where the yoga mat was in there were also 5 Flow magazines. I love the Dutch and Belgian Flow magazine. It’s so creative and inspiring. I love the quotes and the stories written. You can find stories of mental health, how to live a simple life, tips to increase happiness and many other inspiring stories. It’s about letting life flow without any hurry and staying in the present moment. With the magazine also come free goodies such as a laptop sticker, notebook, quotes, little cards, stationery. I love that so much.

Flow tear-off calendar πŸ—“οΈ

I love those kinds of calendars so much. I always have one in my room. This year I had one of The Bucketlist with quotes and things to do. This year I have again one from Flow 🌸. It isn’t only a magazine, they sell lots of stationery and other things too like this amazing calender. I love the quote on it “It is all about finding calm in the chaos”. This year it comes full of inspiring quotes, advice, photography, life lessons, insights, tips and pages about mental health, psychology and lifestyle. It’s great to begin the day with reading something inspiring ✨.

Flow book for paper lovers 🌸😍

THIS IS DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAV PRESENTS EVAH!!! 😍 This book from Flow is so amazing and really heaven for any stationery lover. It cointains beautiful writing paper, stickers, quotes, cards, posters and even wrapping paper for presents. I already have one at home but this is the seventh edition which contains much more beautiful and amazing stationery.

Christmas tree pen πŸŽ„πŸ–‹οΈ

This is a beautiful Christmas tree pen I got. It even has some things on it like little bells haha πŸŽ…. It’s really cute! Maybe it’s a bit difficult to write with it but it could be a nice decoration too.

Advent candle πŸ•―οΈ

I got a beautiful hearts advent candle. I love it so much. Anything with hearts is always a must have! I’m the queen of hearts and have loads of stuff in my room with hearts. Yes, I’m that romantic and sensitive girl. The only bad thing is that we use electronic candles at home because my parents are afraid to use real candles ✨. I still hope to use this one one day hahah πŸ˜‚.

Chocolate advent calendar πŸ—“οΈπŸ«

I love to have a chocolate advent calendar 😍. I can’t begin December without one. I have now two because my daddy also got me one when I came back from Spain. That one is a bit messed up because the chocolates got messed up but well now I can eat even more chocolate every day. I have to be careful I don’t get sick of too much chocolate.

Chocolate heaven 🍫🍫🍫

I got so much delicious chocolate. I love it so much. It’s typical to get letters of chocolate. I have got money out of chocolate, two chocolate letters with the letter C (one is with white chocolate with sea salt and the other one with milk), a white chocolate of Sinterklaas, spice nuts also called kruidnoten in The Netherlands with milk chocolate and white chocolats. I also got milk chocolate pralines in a beautiful package. Lastly but not least, I got a delicious marzipan with chocolate. I think I have enough chocolate now haha. Chocolate is just the best and a girl’s best friend β€οΈπŸ‘Œ.

Pickwick Joy of tea – Green tropical πŸ΅πŸ’ž

Of course, I got tea as I love to drink tea so much. I love to drink Yogi tea which always comes with a quote. I like to try different teas πŸ’–. This one is from Pickwick and it’s green tropical. It contains ginger, pineapple, coconut and lemon. I think this will be a delicious one.

Christmas socks πŸŽ„

I love these Christmas socks from Primark so much. One pair is with a reindeer on it with little balls and the other one has Christmas balls and rings on it. I love them and I’m sure they are also very cozy.

A mug to paint 🎨

In Spain I have another mug that I still need to paint. Now, I got another mug to paint πŸ’–. This one is a beautiful swan 🦒. I love to be creative so this would be a nice thing to do as I’ve never done this before. When the painting is finished you have to let it dry in the microwave. I hope it doesn’t explode lol πŸ˜‚.

Squeeze animal 😍

This is the squeeze animal I lost in Granada this Summer. I had it in my bed in the hotel but the cleaners threw it away without knowing. It made me really sad. I’m happy to have got the same one back. It’s so cute and it’s good to squeeze it when I’m stressed. It makes me feel more calm πŸ’œ.

Beauty products πŸ’–πŸšΏ

I got a pink Batiste Dry Shampoo which is the one of Blush – floral and flirty haha. I love it but I also have to use it a bit less because otherwise my hair feels sometimes a bit dry. It’s good for my bangs as that easily gets oily which I don’t like. I also got a Vogue Girl Deodorant. I love the cats one 😻. It smells so good.

Thank you all for reading this blog post. I hope you liked my Sinterklaas haul. Which present was your favourite of mine list? Did you love the stationery I got? What’s on your Christmas list this year? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love πŸ’•,

xoxo Christina

  1. Wow! It’s like celebrating Christmas twice! I only ever got chocolate if we celebrated on a given year…. and that’s a big IF. I miss these European traditions *sigh*

    Your stash of goodies looks amazing, and these are things I would have loved, especially the magazines and yoga mat! β™₯️

    1. Haha yeah so true! πŸ˜πŸŽ‰ To be honest, we celebrate Sinterklaas with presents and Christmas not so much. We celebrate Christmas of course but not with so many presents. There’s no money anymore haha πŸ˜‚. Yeahhh, I also love it! Thank you so much for reading lovely πŸ’–. The Flow magazines are amazing and the yoga mat too!

  2. Looks like you got some amazing stuff!! 🎁 The pen & socks are so festive and the squeeze animal looks so cute. I see that your Advent calendar is from Flying Tiger, I LOVE that store! You never know what you’re going to find πŸ’« I didn’t know what to wish for this year but I would like some silk material pajamas as the last time I wore them was when I was really little (I remember waking up having slid to the end of the bed πŸ˜‚) and there’s a really long hot water bottle in my local chemist that looks so cozy as it is absolutely freezing here ❄️❀️xx

  3. I absolutely love the Flow book for paper lovers that you got! It’s beautiful! I grew up in Germany and we had something similar to Sinterklaas, St. Nicholas Day, where we would put out our shoes on the eve of December 5th and if we were good St. Nicholas would leave us candies and oranges and small presents and if we had been bad then we got a lump of coal and warning to be good or we would get nothing for Christmas.

    1. Thank you so much! πŸ’– Yes, it’s amazing! In The Netherlands we also put out our shoes. It’s such a lovely tradition. Nice that in Germany there’s something similar. I love traditions. The punishment sounds pretty hard though πŸ˜’πŸ˜‚
