I received my gift today from my AMAZING magnificent wonderful generous Secret Santa, @@jocedun !!!

I am floored. The gift was so kind and thoughtful and had things I secretly wanted that I never put on any wish list! Honestly everything is just the best gift and I am just astonished she got me all these things! I am SO thankful and appreciative and again, baffled by your generosity Jocelyn!

And now for the gifts! This will be a two parter!

 

What I saw when I opened the box:

VHpzSbr.jpg

Wizard of Oz figurines/ornaments(?? i'm using them as ornaments!) I LOVE the Wizard of Oz and I was so happy and delighted to see these in there!! What a sweet surprise!S2HhmXv.jpg

Chocolate!! Dark chocolate specifically. I love it!!

gsKwsEP.jpg

A lip tar!! I haven't put this on any wish lists but I really really wanted to try one!! I love lipstick, especially red lipstick and I have heard amazing things about their staying power!!! This alone could have been the gift! I am so in awe of @@jocedun 's generosity. thank you!hJrfFJq.jpg

vol7fds.jpg

Right about now I realized I should have taken a picture of the inside of the box-so here it is (with some already unwrapped!)

 

This was a huge surprise--another one I have seen people post about on MuT that I was like 'oh man, that looks awesome' but never posted about, never put on a wish list, nothing! Somehow Jocelyn just KNEW I would love it??!?! Amazing. I'm so excited.

A bright colored eyeliner!! I love bright eyeliners!! I had this on my birchbox wish list and there is no way Jocelyn could have known!! I'm so excited to try it!!!!

I2Dq01N.jpg

Ok, the cupcake is so cute and I can't wait to try the body wash. Yum!!

tU9uhlr.jpg

Ok, this was on my wish list but I did not expect to get it AT ALL. I have been wanting to try these for SO LONG. Years probably. I really love tinted lip balms and I just have a feeling that these are like heaven in a tube of chapstick. I cannot believe I got one, let alone three!! Thank you!

SFtkiOl.jpgOkay, there's DEFINITELY no way for you to know this is my favorite candle scent! I bought one last year, I bought one this year, and now I have a mini!!!!! I think I will take it to work and try to get away with burning it there. It's the perfect travel candle! It's so cute!! and delicious!! ahhh!

9ZirM8B.jpg

More tinted lip balm! In an egg! I'm so excited! I'm allergic to eos lip balms but they always look so cute and fun to use and now I get my very own egg!! 

bqkx15v.jpg

Super cute bag..

Fs1zRqn.jpg

OMG these are amazing!! a pumpkin cuticle oil?!?!?! delicious!! And a ruby wing!! I love ruby wing and I don't have this one and I'm so excited to try it!! AND INDIE POLISH!!! I wanted to try some so badly and these are so perfect and beautiful and christmassy!! I love the Ulta and the yellow included too! I love it all!!

Everything:

Again, I am so thankful and in awe of all of these gifts and kindness and sweet postcard and all of it. From the bottom of my heart, thank you @@jocedun !!!

@ so happy it arrived safely and that you loved it! The tracking didn't update for a few days and I was silently FREAKING out. D: I thought the post office had lost it for a moment haha. Also, you totally deserved to be spoiled after all of your surgery issues... I felt so bad reading those posts and making you wait for the gift hehe. :)

 

ETA: And P.S. yes those are ornaments!

SANTA!!! Yeeeee. Disclaimer: these photos are subpar, and also I can't do the picture-by-picture squeeing I always do since I really need to go to bed and I'm like dying at this point @[email protected] but DEFINITELY LOVING EVERYTHING :DDD

 

So look at this magical holographic experience of opening the box and seeing all the presents tucked in so beautifully:

8LJmHotl.jpg

And as per usual, there was a beautiful card (SO SPARKLY!) with an amazingly adorable poem:

df6LPxel.jpg

9o34m8xl.jpg

"A few more gifts before the final show

A polish that reminds me of you - what do you know!
 
One gift I forgot to send last time
And more personal favorites of mine!
 
I hope these items don't give me away
I'm trying to stay secret until Christmas Day!"
 
(I still have no clue who you are Santa...!! Your secret is safe...for now ;D)
 
 
And look at this super clever and beautiful packaging! When I encountered packaging problems, I just went "FML". This is gorgeous and amazing~ (Also, not featured: an eyeliner which was wrapped SUPER CLEVERLY, I'm just sayin')
HienILql.jpg
 
And santa knows I love giftception. I opened one of them to find this XDDD
EcKaZgKl.jpg
 
And this sweet note about the two polish selections:
kOepKGCl.jpg
 
BSUjalPl.jpg
 
(Sorry, I don't have time to type all of it out T___T but I just want to say I think these are BEAUTIFUL polishes and will definitely get used. I'm throwing them and the two christmas-y revlon polishes in my to-go bag for my sleepover this weekend, so my friend and I can play with them. And I'm going to a work-type party with my sister on Saturday where I'll be wearing a plum colored dress, so it's definitely going to be one of these two polishes :33 And I'm having more friends over the weekend after my birthday, so we're definitely going to try out all the polishes you set!)
 
And here are all the goodies laid out~
zth3McOl.jpg
I'm super excited to try all of this -- especially the Algenist set you've sent me. >.< I've always been curious about the brand, and thank you so much for sending all of these my way! Everything will be loved in this set.
 
Thank you again, Santa!! I really must sleep now or else I'll be up all night squeeing about this wonderful present.

Thank you so much! I feel like I might have been hard to shop for but I think you picked some great items for me!! I love Secret Santa!

Glad to see you got great gifts!

I'm so happy you liked everything! I wanted to get a gift for your children that wasn't just candy. My inner anime fangirl saw the Sailor Moon decals and squeed, and just knew that those would be perfect for your girls!

All of these reveals have been so amazing! I love seeing how much thought and care have gone into the gifts!

 

@@ashleylind I'm so happy you liked your gift! I know you're into Korean skincare but that's a field I know nothing about (even thought I got some helps from elves), so I decided to go with stuff I do know! fresh, caudalie and ole henrickson are some of my favorites so I wanted to let you sample those brands. I'm so happy you like everything and hope you enjoy playing with all your new goodies!

It's been a crazy/stressful week for me, so I had a lot of trouble keeping up with these threads! Still days behind in the main thread, but I've finally caught up on this thread so that I can post my reveal. I got the most amazing present from @@onelilspark and I'm just blown away!!

 

Pictures in a spoiler box - 

 

 

Here's the present in the box:

post-100475-0-61617500-1418918429_thumb.jpg

 

Here's the lovely note:

post-100475-0-26115400-1418918443_thumb.jpg

 

All the pretty wrapped presents:

post-100475-0-14292500-1418918461_thumb.jpg

 

Then I started opening them and each present has even more presents inside! Also, can I just note how amazing it is that those boxes in the above photo are wrapped such that the top and bottom are wrapped seperately so you don't have to take off the wrapping paper to open them! Kelly, did you know how excited this would make my OCD? haha

post-100475-0-15150900-1418918483_thumb.jpg

 

Finally here's everything unwrapped:

post-100475-0-42606800-1418919028_thumb.jpg

 

 

 

I'll start from the top left and talk about most of the products in each row. First is homemade chex mix, which is amazing! More than half may already be gone... Then a book, which I'm really excited about becuase I love to read, but have the hardest time picking out a book! I'm hoping to read it soon then hopefully pass along to another MUTer who loves to read (related: we should totally have a book circular swap!). Then is the coolest mug with a tea infuser! I actually just bought this same mug recently, and I'm really excited to have one for work now and one for home/traveling so this is so perfect. Then a bunch of black tea! Really excited to use my new mug for this :) Next is some hair products! I'm really excited to try the devacurl and the davines shampoo. I'm also excited to have another mini of the BP Oil becuase I love this stuff!! I think I'll keep this one at my desk at works so my hair can be pretty and soft all day :). And the haIr elastics are adorable, I'll definitely use these! Then MJ Daisy is one of my two daily perfumes, and I've been looking for minis to carry in my purse so I'm very excited for these. Next, the Jergens BB and Supergoog CC are my daily summer go-to's so these will defnintely go to good use! Next row is all of the amazing make up products! SO MANY LIP PRODUCTS which are my favorite! Some of these I've been wanted to try forever like the sugar lip balm in a color (the plum will be perfect for winter when my lips need balm the most!), the revlon stick, and the pacifica. Then comes the rest of the make up samples! I'm literally screamed when I opened the lolitini mini becuase I've been wanting this mini for so long!! And I'm also really excited about the benefit blush and the be a bombshell eye base (I think I'm the only one that actually likes BaB products haha. Yes, they're over priced, and that one stick and mascara were terrible, but I love their lip gloss, blush and eyeshadow!). I'm also really excited about the rainbow honey cuticle balm! You literally read my mind. I've been having a ton of hang nails lately and reallly been looking for something to soothe and heal my cuticles! Finally some masks! Which I cannot wait to use!

 

Overall this present was just amazing so very pertect for me! Thanks so much!!

So first, please excuse my horrible picture taking abilities.  I was really excited and am notorious for taking bad pictures. :blush:   

 

My santa was the fabulous @@tulosai !!!!   Tulosai has been my penpal from before the site move and everything she picked was absolutely perfect!

The whole gift had a Jane Austen theme.  *swoon*   :wub:

 

 

Opening the box:  

IMG_0046_zps41756bde.jpg

As soon as I read the card I pretty much yelled "It's JANE AUSTEN themed!!!" and maybe sort of scared the dog.  

 

IMG_0047_zps8836f93e.jpg Next was Jane Austen goodies.  THAT BIB!!!  I started crying once I saw this, it is PERFECT.  We have been reading Jane Austen to the baby every night for the last few months so she will love this.  It got a big smile and laugh out of my husband.  I would like to pretend the paper dolls will be for the baby but I am so playing with those.   ;)   The band aids are adorable.  There is even a book for me!  

 

IMG_0050_zpscb22e16e.jpgNext was an awesome set of magical pampering products.  Candy Apple and Cinnamon Pumpkin body lotions. (I love food and fall scented products)  My first Pacifica product and it smells soooo good.  Body scrub bonbons and peppermint bubble bath (I may not leave the tub until after the baby is born now).  Yesto towelettes which I have been wanting to try forever and a mini hand sanitizer.  

 

IMG_0051_zpsfd3b8137.jpg For the finale:  ALL the lipglosses!!  This set was on my wishlist and I squeed when I saw it.  I love lip products and this has every color I have ever wanted or wanted to try.  I see hours of amusement in this one set, lol.   :D   There was also an Ofra brow pencil I am looking forward to trying and some cute nail buffers.  (I love buffers because you can get that clear coat look without polish)  There was a small casualty with the Pacifica duo but I have been curious about re-pressing powders so this gives me the perfect opportunity to try it out!  Last, but not least, The SHIZ perfume oil!!  This is the first scent I have ever worn regularly and I love it!  I am so excited to have more.   :smilehappyyes: 

 

 

 

 

@@tulosai , your gift is so perfect and I cannot thank you enough for the thought and time you put into it.  It is so special to get something so personal.  Once I stop crying and laughing I am going to spend the day with all my new pretties!!   :flowers:

Thank you so much @@emilylithium !  This was my first Secret Santa on MUT and you definitely spoiled me with some awesome goodies!  I was opening up all of the little presents at my kitchen table while my sister was in the living room, and each time I opened something I kept laughing with happiness.  My sister kept asking me why I was laughing and I told her I was excited about the gifts my SS sent to me.  I kept taking each gift in to show her saying, "Look at this!, Look what she sent me!!, OH, isn't this adorable!".  She wasn't as excited as I was, but I still wanted to share my excitement with someone.  So here are some pictures:

 This was the first thing that I opened.  Eeeeee Macadamia Cleansing Conditioner!  I tried this from a Birchbox and loved it.  I'm so excited to get a full size of it!  I also love that double-sided wrapping paper.

 

post-96557-0-22490400-1418936049.jpeg

A makeup sponge!  Can't wait to try it out to see how it works.

 

post-96557-0-71111000-1418936181.jpeg

And I love this wrapping paper too.  It was like a kraft paper with a cute Christmas light print on it.

 

post-96557-0-46147700-1418936262_thumb.jpeg

This is one of my favorite gifts and it wasn't even on my wishlist!  It is a beeswax cat candle locally made in emilylithium's hometown/state.  I love both cats and candles and this was a perfect gift.

 

post-96557-0-28147200-1418936601.jpeg

A pack of little extras with a bunch of new things I get to play with and try out.

 

post-96557-0-17674800-1418936716.jpeg

This "facial-in-a-box" is going to be fun to use for a spa day at home.

 

 

 

 

 

To be continued...

Other than that I will suggest you use onion juice twice a week. You will see results in your hair growth. Along with this you should use coconut oil. For more guidance visit aysanhairdesign.com.au
