2017 Christmas Haul T1D Living

Hi All! How was your Christmas? With Christmas falling on a Monday and a crazy snow storm hitting New Hampshire some of our Christmas plans have gotten postponed until next week, but I still wanted to drop in and do a 2017 Christmas Haul with you all.


So let’s jump right in!


2017 Christmas Haul

Essential Oil Diffuser


Who DOESN’T love diffusers?! When I won this at a family Yankee Swap I felt like I hit the jackpot! Yankee Swaps can be so hit or miss, and this was a total hit! My favorite oil to diffuse in it has been lavender. The scent is so calming plus lavender oil has antibacterial and antiviral qualities that make it perfect for this time of year. This is the brand I have here.


Himalayan Salt Lamp


I can never have enough of these babies! I love salt lamps for SO many reasons (check out my post on why HERE), but my favorite is their ambiance. The golden orange glow is so relaxing and perfect for winding down after a long day. I put this one by my nightstand which makes it perfect for middle-of-the-night BG checks because it doesn’t throw off too much light. This is the brand I have here. 


Custom Printed Shirts


My Dad had these shirts custom made, not just for me, but for Justin, his parents, and his sister. I got a sweatshirt, t-shirt, and a baby onesie (do you think he’s hinting for a grandchild? haha). I can’t wait to rock this hoodie, representing my backyard flock.


Pretty Knit Sweater


How pretty is this Secret Santa gift I got from Justin’s aunt and uncle? It’s a knitted poncho style sweater that is so incredibly soft! I can’t wait to pair this with leggings, boots, and a top knot!


Question of the Day

What are some of your favorite gifts from the Holidays this year? Also, for those that diffuse, what are some of your favorite oil or combination of oils?

    I received a newly aligned foot for Christmas. It is those personal gifts that matter so much. 🙂
