When you receive your package, please post here that you have received it and who it is from. **Even if you don't do anything more than acknowledge you received your gift(s), it would mean a whole lot to your Buddy, who spent a good part of their summer stalking you and agonizing over what to get you & whether you will like it.**

2. Please post pics and lengthy descriptions in a spoiler.  Instructions are here: How to Post a Spoiler

3. Here are the instructions on how to post pics: How to Post Pictures in a Post

It's not a ninja swap, it's a "you've been a fantastic roadie, an always on sounding board and a wonderful friend" present.  

 

I just really wanted to thank you for being there for me through this whole thing.   :luv:

@@DonnaD thank you so much for my lovely gift! You are amazing!!! This made my hectic day worthwhile, love it.

You're so welcome,  Thanks for talking me down when I had my freak out over the afghan.

 

The two of you girls were huge support for me between these two swaps.

I got my package today and my summer secret santa was @@Dashery ! Thank you so much! I wasn't expecting this so soon and it just made my entire Monday! Everything came all pretty with little notes attached to each surprise.

Everything came in this reusable Batman & Catwoman shopping tote. I TOTALLY SHIP THIS! Especially the Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale version. ALL THE DARK KNIGHT RISES FEELINGS!

I love the card she chose! It's so pretty! I don't think I've ever seen one like it! One of the first items I pulled out was this Too Faced Tan Without The Twinkle set. I love their chocolate bronzer, but the little bitty brush out-cuted the makeup itself. It's so soft and pretty!

Ally made me all of these super cute hair bows! My favorite is the red and white one in the middle. It's one of my favorite things from everything Ally sent me, which is a lot to say because it was all amazing! I think I'll be wearing this bow almost every day!

I receive all of these cute little miniatures, including a miniature JC perfume! I don't have this one yet either, so I'm super excited to add it to my ever growing collection. Also these papier poudre sheets seem amazing, it looks like not only do they blot and remove oil, they leave a light dusting of powder on the face. C'est tres chic!

And one of the most amazing parts was this custom "subscription box" made just for me!

It's Rochelle Goyle themed! /flips the freak out!/

Inside there were so may Rochelle themed goodies from color coordinated makeup to handmade hair bows to eyeshadow samples (from The Checkered Lily, one of my favorite indie companies!). This was so creative and amazing! Top this, ladies!

 

 

 

Ally, thank you so much for everything. I love, love, love it all! It's made me so happy, you don't even know!

OMG! That custom "subscription box" is sooo cool. I love the theme and it looks like some pretty awesome items in it (and in your whole gift!!)

The bows are all kinds of amazing!

    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
