Day8: [spoiler=Warning: Spoiler!]700700

Another beautifully wrapped gift from [@]tgooberbutt[/@]! These eye shadows are gorgeous and I loved the note that came with it. Today I was wondering if I should open one gift a day and then open the rest on the 25th or if I should keep doing one gift a day until I'm done? I was asking the hubby for his opinion and he says why don't you just ask the ladies on MUT? Love it when he comes up with great ideas. So what do you ladies think? Let me know. I would continue opening one gift a day. That way the fun continues after Christmas :)

Finally! I've made it to a computer so I can give my big Secret Santa reveal! xmas.gif

 

I was incredibly lucky to receive @Jac13 as my Secret Santa. She sent me a heaping pile of gifts that we very thoughtful and amazing!

 

Without further ado, My reveal:

 

700

 

Enter the spoiler tag for contents!

 

700

 

700

Look at that box popping open! And how gorgeous is that box?!

 

700

First look upon opening the pretty box. EEEEEPP! SO exctied! :jawsdown:

 

700

Wrapped presents laid out. I could of sworn the white square was a CD and the larger rectangle had to be a DVD. I don't know what I was thinking, But I was super excited to tear it all open.

 

 

700

Owl wrapping paper!!! It's not secret, I'm owl obsessed. I work night shift, so I'm definitely a "night owl". I also have tons of owl earrings, a fairly large owl tattoo, owl necklace, and my house is sprinkled with owl decorations. I'm definitely loving the pretty wrapping paper!

 

700

First present I tore open was the orange box. And boy, did it smell delicious! I've just recently tried Lush products for the first time. One being a mask and the other being a makeup remover. I'm SO SUPER excited to try more things. The face and body scrub was something on my wish list. An employee tried it out on my arm, but I decided to buy the other things. As I walked out of the mall, I was kicking myself in the butt for not getting it. I couldn't stop touching the soft spot on my arm and sniffing it. It was amazing. Also included in the Orange Jelly soap bar. It smells very citrus-y. Very energizing and this needs to go into my shower ASAP!bath.gif

 

700

Continuing to feed my obsession, I unwrapped this beautiful journal. I LOVE IT! It's gorgeous green, it's artsy and it's entirely perfect for my to jot my thoughts away getting lost.inlove3.gif

 

700

Look at all those pretties!!!! Bonus: Mr. Milo Oliver Sebastian! I mentioned I wanted to try bolder colors and Jennifer delivered. I have to be the only MUA who hasn't tried Color Tattoo and I can't wait! It's a gorgeous teal. Those three single eye shadows and two liners are going to create an amazing eye and I can't wait to play with them. Jennifer wrote in her card that she was looking for colors inspired by the Hunger Games. When I see them I think of this picture:

 

700

Love, love, love!!! I'm excited to create a look that will being my hazel eyes out. This colors are fabulous.

 

700

And did you see the Too Faced palette?! I squealed with such delight! The green (sequin) in that palette is a dark hunterish/evergreen. It's hands down, sexy. I love Too Faced shadows. I love the directions for idea inspirations. And this is right all up in my ally. It's really a wonder I don't own this yet. How did you know, Jennifer? It's perfect! All the colors are so pretty! And that magenta (bright eyes)! As a person with a serious palette addiction, I don't have anything in my collection like these. I also mentioned I'm a bit of a blush idiot, and it's fantastic that this palette includes a beautiful blush and a luminizer. YAY! :roflmao:

There's a watermelon flavored LipSmacker in there. As I was opening my gifts, it's the exact flavor that was currently in my pocket and on it's way out (I use LipSmacker so much, I go through a tube in a week!). 

 

700

All the gifts together. I am just beyond happy. ALL THE PRETTIES!! yay.gif

 

700

Jennifer's card.

 

700

Even the card contained more awesome things to try! Love! :heart:

 

MUT Secret Santa was a ton of fun and it was amazing to get to be apart of it and share in the experience. Thank you, Jennifer for thinking of me of this holiday season. You picked out gifts that, I swear, you must of really taken to time to get to know me. I love everything so much. And I am in awe of your generosity. I'm so grateful and I appreciate you taking the time to do this. You're the best! :clap

Everything looks so wonderful ladies!  Even though I have received my packages and my santees have received theirs, it is still so much fun seeing all of the reveals!  I am heading over to do an early Christmas tonight with my mother--and now I know that I should just bring her cats boxes next year!

This is awesome! That Too Faced palette is gorgeous! I think next year I'm going to ask for colors outside of my comfort zone (is it sad that I'm already thinking about next year?)

So I tried to play it safe and went with colors that complemented each other. @HHummel I enjoyed reading your posts and getting to know a glimpse of you. Thank you for introducing me to Too Faced. I wouldn't have thought about it if it wasn't on your post nor Lush. Yes!!! There products are divine. I hope you enjoy many days and nights playing with your lovelies.

@lioness90 I am also thinking about going bigger next year. This has been an un expectant pleasure. I like to call it a delightful distraction.

I got my secret Santa gift from heartsandwhimsy! It was amazing! My computer is acting crazy with loading pictures but I am going to keep trying! It was a an awesome assortment of items! I wore the pretty scarf the very next day! I was also completely in love the Deborah Lippmann mini bag with the two minis! She is one of my favorite that I can never afford! It was also crazy because I had just lost my amethyst eyeliner from IPSY so it was so great to get another! I also had used almost my whole mini Baker Street from Nails Inc up so I was excited to get another! Thank you heartsandwhimsy for being so generous! Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

MY GIFT IS HERE!!!!!!!!!! I've been so excited to get it since I got the peach slip in my mailbox Satutday (my post office is closed Saturdays). I'm driving into town on a mad dash to finish Christmas shopping. After trying to cut the box open while driving I realized I wasn't being safe and couldn't enjoy my present if I crashed. So I'll have to wait to open the presents. I will say the box smells amazing! I don't know what it is but it's heavenly. I love pretty scented things. I wear perfume even when I'm at home and love to have scented candles or wax burning. My wonderful Secret Santa is @latinafeminista. I haven't opened anything yet but the card and already I'm almost in tears. She's so thoughtful and in so lucky to have gotten her. Thank you @latinafeminista! I'll post pictures and such when I get home and can use my computer.

For everyone dealing with PO issues, USPS is on my nerves too right now... I had a trade package shipped to me on 12/13 from Chicago - It went to a processing center in PA, then disappeared for about 4 days.  Then it popped up at a processing center in freakin' SALT LAKE CITY, UT (I think it wanted to visit @slinka ), then vanished - and yesterday was scanned in Rochester, NY.  Someday it'll reach me in NC.

 

It held the English Laundry perfumes, which I expect to be in smithereens by now, no matter how carefully packaged!

 

(I want to emphasize that I in no way blame the sender.  She is absolutely wonderful, and USPS is to blame for all the craziness.)  I've now decided to name the package Squiffy, and I'm going to relax and enjoy all of Squiffy's Wild Adventures across the US.  If anyone is in/near Rochester, please wave to Squiffy as he goes by!

I didn't know I had this much will power lol!  it has been really nice to open up a gift everyday. It has given me something to look forward to, this last week has been really difficult and opening these gifts have definitely given me a reason to smile.

Look at that box popping open! And how gorgeous is that box?!

First look upon opening the pretty box. EEEEEPP! SO exctied! :jawsdown:

Wrapped presents laid out. I could of sworn the white square was a CD and the larger rectangle had to be a DVD. I don't know what I was thinking, But I was super excited to tear it all open.

Owl wrapping paper!!! It's not secret, I'm owl obsessed. I work night shift, so I'm definitely a "night owl". I also have tons of owl earrings, a fairly large owl tattoo, owl necklace, and my house is sprinkled with owl decorations. I'm definitely loving the pretty wrapping paper!

First present I tore open was the orange box. And boy, did it smell delicious! I've just recently tried Lush products for the first time. One being a mask and the other being a makeup remover. I'm SO SUPER excited to try more things. The face and body scrub was something on my wish list. An employee tried it out on my arm, but I decided to buy the other things. As I walked out of the mall, I was kicking myself in the butt for not getting it. I couldn't stop touching the soft spot on my arm and sniffing it. It was amazing. Also included in the Orange Jelly soap bar. It smells very citrus-y. Very energizing and this needs to go into my shower ASAP!bath.gif

Continuing to feed my obsession, I unwrapped this beautiful journal. I LOVE IT! It's gorgeous green, it's artsy and it's entirely perfect for my to jot my thoughts away getting lost.inlove3.gif

 

700

Look at all those pretties!!!! Bonus: Mr. Milo Oliver Sebastian! I mentioned I wanted to try bolder colors and Jennifer delivered. I have to be the only MUA who hasn't tried Color Tattoo and I can't wait! It's a gorgeous teal. Those three single eye shadows and two liners are going to create an amazing eye and I can't wait to play with them. Jennifer wrote in her card that she was looking for colors inspired by the Hunger Games. When I see them I think of this picture:

 

700

Love, love, love!!! I'm excited to create a look that will being my hazel eyes out. This colors are fabulous.

And did you see the Too Faced palette?! I squealed with such delight! The green (sequin) in that palette is a dark hunterish/evergreen. It's hands down, sexy. I love Too Faced shadows. I love the directions for idea inspirations. And this is right all up in my ally. It's really a wonder I don't own this yet. How did you know, Jennifer? It's perfect! All the colors are so pretty! And that magenta (bright eyes)! As a person with a serious palette addiction, I don't have anything in my collection like these. I also mentioned I'm a bit of a blush idiot, and it's fantastic that this palette includes a beautiful blush and a luminizer. YAY! :roflmao:

There's a watermelon flavored LipSmacker in there. As I was opening my gifts, it's the exact flavor that was currently in my pocket and on it's way out (I use LipSmacker so much, I go through a tube in a week!).

 

700

All the gifts together. I am just beyond happy. ALL THE PRETTIES!! yay.gif

 

700

Jennifer's card.

 

700

Even the card contained more awesome things to try! Love! :heart:

 

MUT Secret Santa was a ton of fun and it was amazing to get to be apart of it and share in the experience. Thank you, Jennifer for thinking of me of this holiday season. You picked out gifts that, I swear, you must of really taken to time to get to know me. I love everything so much. And I am in awe of your generosity. I'm so grateful and I appreciate you taking the time to do this. You're the best! :clap

This is awesome! That Too Faced palette is gorgeous! I think next year I'm going to ask for colors outside of my comfort zone (is it sad that I'm already thinking about next year?)

Not all!  I am definitely doing this next year.

I am almost a month late in postin this, but my SS sent me part of my gift before Thanksgiving. It was the nails inc. The After Party and she shipped it through Sephora and left the note "A little something to keep your holiday spirits bright before the rest of your Secret Santa gift arrives. Happy Holidays! - Secret Santa from MUT" I can't wait until the rest comes to me. 400 Bad photo, sorry about that. I only took a quick photo on my phone when it first arrived and by now they have all been used. Thank you to whoever my SS is! I am enjoying the first part!
