Amazing reveals so far!! I'm mailing my package on Wednesday probably...a little late in the shipping window, but it helps spread out the awesomeness of reveals, no? :) 

 

@@sstich79 too bad about the blush! I don't know if you're a Birchbox subscriber or not but those custom color blushes are in the shop, should have points to spend and want to replace it. I'm not sure how custom it really is, but I do like mine.

Thanks for the tip, @@jayeme! I'm actually about to place my very first BB order once I get to review my August items for those points, so I'll have to check them out. I need more blush like I need a hole in the head, but it did look awfully pretty!

I found the cat treats at Wal-Mart.  They were on an end cap so they may be fairly new.  I should have probably grabbed a bag for my cat.  :lol:

@  Glad you liked everything! I had a blast stalking you...In fact I'd been stalking you prior to the thread, your instagram is amazing.

 

The garlic is from "the garlic guy" a farmer in Los Olivos (near Solvang), he's a character who grows 50+ types of heirloom garlic. If anyone is ever in the area the town is really cool spot for foodies and drunks...oh I mean wine and beer enthusiasts. 

 

Thank you to my awesome roadies @christaw & @@trekkersangel, you gals were so helpful!! And big thanks to @@dancersmum and @@Babs28 for always letting me bounce ideas off you!

Okay, it's official...I need to learn how to make something, anything before Secret Santa.  I think all of these personally made gifts are my favorite.  @@SaraP you did personally make that Kate Spade necklace, right  :smilehappyyes:

 

I really feel bad that my buddy won't be getting anything as lovely and personal.  And I am so grateful to have been a part of this group with all of you that are sharing your talents and spreading the love.  What an amazing, amazing group of women this is.

Nonsense! Your gift will be awesome for all the personal touches and thought put into it. And you'll get lots of ideas for homemade things once the reveals are over, for Secret Santa!

Yay, my present from @@Kelli was here when I got home from work!  Grr, tonight was not good for a reveal post!  I opened everything and took pictures, and then came the Photobucket uploading.  Slooooow!  I don't have time to edit the photos into a MUT-friendly format (I have to go to bed now since I stayed up *way* too late last night), and the text doesn't make sense without the photos!  I'm going to have to do my reveal post tomorrow in order to do this box of awesome justice. 

 

(I will say that I'm a bit obsessed with a few of these things already, and I haven't even used them yet!) 

 

(Spoiler:  My desk at the office will be home to a TokyoMilk Dark Salted Caramel elixir now so I have one nearby when I'm at work.  And, yes, it smells like salted caramel.)

I'm so glad it got to you safe! The tracking was so weird (still on the 4th it was saying "expected delivery date Aug 2nd" lol i was freaking out until yesterday morning when the tracking said it was in your city!)

YAY! I'm glad it smells like salted caramel. It made me salivate a little when I was choosing which to get you :)

I am admittedly MEGA jealous of the Kate Spade (I have a serious KS addiction. Like, its a problem.) SOOO pretty!

 

Guys, my cats are all about those darn treats.  I think Ada might have eaten about 30 of them last night. She kept roaming around the box looking for them!

That is so funny.  I had another brand of cat treat in my cart the entire time I was at Wal-Mart.  Then I happened to swing back by and saw those.  I stood there debating on which flavor to get for probably 3 minutes. :lol:

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!! I feel so BLESSED!!! My swap buddy was @Lacylei. Words can not describe how truly touched and honored I feel. She not only blessed me but my daughters as well. We were all squealing with joy and excitement. She even remembered my birthday! Internet hugs. Lacy was extremely generous and I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

 

Here's what my youngest daughter received:

Phillips earbuds

Pixie lip balm

A book yes! Marked-- she is reading it now. She just finished her last book and loves ready.

Thank you, thank you.

 

My oldest daughter received:

Dr Scholls High Heel insoles- she was just asking for some so this was a welcome surprise.

Pore deep cleansing- def will be used a lot

Green eyeliner by Sephora which is really cute on her

Just Take My Heart by Mary Higgens Clark on cd-- it is a suspense book cd-- this will be shared!

Thank you for including my children in this they were beyond thrilled. I don't know how you knew but you picked the perfect gifts for both of them. THIS truly moved me beyond words.

NOW!!!! The moment everyone has been waiting for.... MY GIFTS!!!! I am soooo excited.

 

One of my favorite and stylish villain Cruella De Vil!! I got the elf lookbook! The colors are warm and very pretty. I must admit I have never worn Elf. I am looking forward to creating that will be gorgeous and edgy like Cruella. And... I got lashes!! Yes I love lashes. I only wear them when I am going somewhere special or where I need that extra ump. One pair has rhinestones. I will be wearing these to a wedding this weekend. Yes!

 

I got this really pretty makeup kit by Afternoon Tea Time. It is my first Fantasy Holic makeup kit. I think I have heard about this somewhere on MuT. I am definitely anxious to try on my lovelies.

 

I got Dolce and Gabbana in light blue perfume!!! It's a deluxe size. I love Love perfume. I put on perfume to go to bed, yes I love it!!! I don't know if I mention this somewhere but I love this brand. The scents are so elegant and soft.

Guess what ladies?!! Lacy made me my own Aunt Flo emergency kit! I thought that was so clever. This is in my purse as we speak. Love It!! It came with everything I might need including the tea and chocolates, lol.

 

I just started venturing out into bolder looks. Thanks to @@chelsealady from midnight swap and my generous SwapBuddy @@lacylei I am stockpiled.

I got a pretty purple, pink and yellow waterproof eyeliners

Laqa&co lip lube in purple- I will save this for concerts! Katy Perry I am coming for you, lol.

Baby Lips lip balm- some good stuff

A very pretty Lancôme mini eye palette- this is so perfect for traveling. The colors are so pretty. It was all wrapped in sparkly paper in a pretty fuchsia bag.

 

I don't know how you knew but I love cherry blossom. The scent smells so good. I will use my shower cream tonight after my bath. I haven't tried the new formula from Bath and Body Works prior to this; loving it.

Another body lotion by Gilchrist & Soames- another nice scent to add

Tocca cleopatra hand cream- very nice. I am in body moisturizing heaven!

Ecotools facial sponge- I have never tried this so def excited to try it out. I love ecotools brand.

Lush face and body cleanser- will use this tonight with my new facial sponge! Love it!

Lait-Creme moisturizer- this is actually very moisturizing. I will keep this lil baby for travel.

Now I should know who my buddy is by the astronaut chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips!! Can't wait to eat this. Never had it so this will be a pleasant surprise. Oh did I mention all my lovelies were in this reusable pink and green shopping bag. Did someone say pink and green, lol. This will get used a lot.
