Yay! How fun!! It's a great way to start the reveals, just a little teaser to get us all amped up. @ I would probably be going crazy wondering who the sender/Santa is.

*twirls mustache* Haha! All right. Where is the Santa? The battle of wits has begun! It ends when you decide and we both open presents, and find out who is right... and who is dead (er...or something like that). 

 

But it's so simple. All you have to do is divine from what you know of me: am I the sort of woman who would comment on her own santee or not? Now, a clever Santa would distance herself from the gift, because they would know that only a great fool would gobble up hints. You are not a great fool, so you can clearly deduce I am not your Santa. But I must have known you were not a great fool - I would have counted on it! So you can clearly not assume I am not your Santa.

*whispers* Tell me your secrets! haha  :P

Oh, *so weird*, there's something super funky going on.  It actually links to wherever you are.  If you're in the indie rabbit hole, that's where it links.  Birchbox swaps thread?  There it goes.  I'm in the place where you edit your signature, and it goes there, and that's not even a thread!  I just tried re-editing it.  Fingers crossed that this works!

 

ETA:  It looks like that fixed it.  Thanks for the heads-up!

PERFECT FIRST TEASER PRESENT.  :santa: Makes me feel all jolly and festive inside, especially since the Santa is still secret. The gift giver lurks among us! Anyway, so happy that we here on MUT get to stretch the holiday festivities from now until Christmas!

Agreed! Sneaky Santas are the best. I loved all the ninja Santas last year.

    • A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results.    Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it.  Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapors to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapors.  Take the steam vapors for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt.  Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads.  Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer.
    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.
