Yowza! You know something wonderful has happened when you login and there are 3 pages in the new reveals thread  :w00t:

 

@Dashery Awesome first reveal! So well thought out and custom, you've set the bar high my friend...and @Deareux!!! Loved all the photos and descriptions.

 

Up next @@DonnaD, such beautiful bags! I know how much time and effort went into those, you are a crochet goddess  :smilehappyyes: Love the tea cup and that sigma brush is super nice. @@jpark107 I also loved all the photos and info! I love that brush!! To use it, I dab foundation dots around my face, then bounce (stipple) the brush to spread the foundation and then buff (swirl) the brush around to finish. 

 

Thank you ladies for all the  :sunshine: and  :hugs3: !!

OMG the Owl Bag is the CUTEST THING EVER.  And the Batman/Catwoman bag? ADORBS.

 

(and I went through and fixed the spoiler tag you were trying to do, @@jpark107 ! Darn coding wasn't working right for some reason!)

What wonderful first reveals.  @@Dashery I love how well thought out and personal our theme was.  And @@DonnaD, I was in awe of the bag you crocheted for @@trekkersangel, but the owl on the one for @@jpark107 just stopped me in my tracks it was so dang cute.  Both of you put so much of yourselves into these boxes.  What a high bar you have set for the rest of us.

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!

 

What a great gift! What a great way to start the reveals!!! MuT ladies are the best.

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!

 

blogger-image--1092916023.jpg

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!

 

blogger-image--86352841.jpg

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!

 

blogger-image--373180013.jpg

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

 

blogger-image--2139525041.jpg

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

 

blogger-image-2059453190.jpg

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!

Great gifts!!

@DonnaD was my summer swap buddy and my package arrived today!

 

 

 

 

 

 

attachicon.gifIMG_0282.jpg

 

 

First of all, the box is barely closed because it is absolutely jam-packed. 

attachicon.gifIMG_0283.jpg

Second, @@DonnaD had crocheted a beautiful market bag! This is absolutely gorgeous, with a touch of whimsy. It even includes a pocket on the back! Every time I use this bag, I'll think of your thoughtfulness! 

attachicon.gifIMG_0284.jpg

attachicon.gifIMG_0287.jpg

Third, the box smelled fantastic because it included a bottle of Laundress signature detergent, which I will happily use to wash the market bag. Yup, I'm excited about laundry detergent!   :)

 

Next, I found a tea cup, saucer, and tea! I drink tea daily and this set is perfect timing because we recently broke one of our mugs. 

attachicon.gifIMG_0285.JPG

There were several bath and body products, including shampoo, sponges and a mini brush. I've got to admit that I'm usually running out of the door in the mornings to catch my bus, so that mini brush will come in handy when I don't have time to brush my hair before I leave home.

 

In addition, @@DonnaD included a Sigma foundation brush that I've been coveting! I recently started wearing makeup daily, so I hope that this brush will help to decrease the time that it takes to apply foundation. 

 

@@DonnaD also included a beautiful set of OPI nail polishes. My nail polish collection is mostly neutrals, so I'm happy to have colorful shades!

 

Finally, @@DonnaD included caramel-filled chocolates, a cell phone charm in my favorite color and forget-me-not flower seeds!

 

attachicon.gifIMG_0286.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

@@DonnaD Thank you so much for taking the time to crochet such a beautiful bag and to curate such a well-rounded lifestyle package. I love lifestyle products, so this box was absolute perfection. I am grateful for your creativity, generosity and thoughtfulness! 

What a lovely gift! That bag is absolutely gorgeous.

Well, I didn't get my Summer Swap package today, but I did get NINJA SWAPPED by someone on here. @@DonnaD sent me a package today just because.

 

Look what she made me!!!!

 

 

 

 

The crochet goddess created me a beautiful teal colored crochet bag. Isn't it gorgeous? Oh my goodness I love it. Donna!!! I can't believe you sent this to me!!! I love it so much. THANK YOU.

My summer swap buddy is @@Christa W and she is already my friend so she knows what I like!  Christa and I have become close due to our mutual love of all things nail polish here on the boards so when I saw my present was from her, I knew I was in for a real treat.  She just gets me.

 

This bag is to die for!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Cutest thing ever and it's the perfect size to carry all my stuff the few times a year we do our B&B stays.  It was stuffed full too.

post-94745-0-89213700-1406745501_thumb.jpg

 

She wrote a long note which, for real, made me cry.  And made me remember the number one reason I value this board and the people on it is because I have real friends here and Christa was my first.

 

My favourite part of this gift is the handwritten family recipe cards.  Christa, your mom's last name is my maiden name.  Are we long lost relatives???

 

She sent me OPI Brazil Collection liquid sand minis.  I LOVE!!!!  This!

OPI Push and Shove 

Sephora X in Zing and Inspiring

Sephora by OPI in Leotard Optional whch I have been wanting FOREVER.

Sinful in Real Teal.  It's one of the new silk collection and I'm dying to try it out.

Nicole by OPI in My Sol Shines Brighter and Live In The Momentum

Sally Hansen Lustre Shine in Scarab

Olive Lips which I love this stuff so much!

And finally a few creams and lotions and a perfume sample.

 

She put together the perfect present for me.

 

Thank you so much, Christa for everything but most importantly for always being my friend.  :hugs3:

    • Major beauty packaging companies decided to launch paper cosmetic tube for the consumers. These tubes are more eco-friendly.  This was  announced at  Luxe Pack Monaco. Major plastic part will be replaced with a bio-based, paper-like material.  Production is expected to start  in the mid of 2020. The replacement of plastics is environment friendly and  a cardboard-based tube will be a good achievement to save environment.
    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
