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: !!

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.

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:

    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • 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.
