You two are too funny!  I remember that.  @ brought up the Holiday Meteorites (after I had seen them mentioned so many times).  Now I own those and Clair 02.   :lol:

So what you're saying is...we enabled you!  LOL!!! :P

Oh, update on the pretty paper cranes that my wonderful santa,  made for me!

 

I took them in yesterday, for our class christmas party. The kiddos were all excited and loved the bright colors! Instead of sending them home with them (several of them live in a facility and they'd likely just get lost, the others might lose them, etc), each picked one and we put them on strings and are going to hang them up in the room like a mobile once we take down the christmas tree! You made them so happy, kyuu! :)

 

So, Merry Christmas from me and the kiddos. :)

It takes a very special person to give these kids the attention they deserve!! Many blessings to you @@yousoldtheworld

@@ohsailor just so you know...those are NOT mine...those are YOUR Too Faced Sweetheart Beads!! LOL!!  As in...I did not pack mine up and ship them off!! I purchased those fresh for you. :P  Didn't want you thinking otherwise!  If I did that...I would have said something. LOL! 

 

And hey, your package from @@BagLady was amazing!! Great gifts!!  Enjoy all your goodies!! Merry Christmas! 

 

I actually did think it was yours hahah! And I DIDN'T MIND ONE BIT. You are the sweetest. Thank you so much. I'll be messaging you shortly

 

 

I'm seriously not sure how it will feel to wake up to zero reveals while I'm drinking my coffee.  This is my morning happy place!!  I want reveals 365!!!

 

I know! Hopefully two more (small) reveals when Sephora stops messing around and gives @ her boxes I sent her

What an adorable little tote  :wub:

Soooo many pretties!! The J.Cat Wonder Lip Paints have been on my list for a while now except I had no clue where to find them, leave it to my Santa to literally read my mind on this one! Perfect color for me as well, I will definitely have to wear it in the next few days, eeeeep!

 

The NYX Love in Florence palette is gorgeous, I'm a sucker for purple anything.  And the eyelashes are really delicate and pretty looking, I'm excited to experiment with these.  And then there's sweet treats, ugh swoon! I have been on a MAJOR sweets tear as of late so these are very welcome and how did you know I'm addicted to salt?? I can't wait to try out that gourmet salt!!

A quick reveal because I have a terrible cough and feel pretty wretched. Thanks to the lovely @@MissRoe for the gifts!

I was so excited when I opened the box! I love owls, so the wrapping paper was perfect. I may have slowly unwrapped everything so I could save it. :)

 

post-107379-0-21029000-1419169122_thumb.jpg

These were two of the things on my wish list that I was super excited to get. 

 

post-107379-0-16265600-1419169193_thumb.jpg

How cute are these socks?! And I've almost bought myself that eos lip balm set a few times, but I was waiting, just in case. (Not that you can ever have too many eos balms.)

 

post-107379-0-62867700-1419169244_thumb.jpg

I've never owned anything from Smashbox, so I'm excited to try these cute little lipsticks.

 

post-107379-0-89477400-1419169276_thumb.jpg

This Birchbox was stuffed full of samples, so many that I'm not quite sure how she got them all to fit! 

 

post-107379-0-46798000-1419169316_thumb.jpg

Seriously, look at all that stuff! I'm most excited about the Tocca, which is a favorite.

 

post-107379-0-59355800-1419169373_thumb.jpg

All the things! There was also a cutesy owl ornament (which is now on my tree), chips and candies, coffee, a bath pouf, hair ties, hand cream, a pretty scarf, and three Coastal Scents Elite eyebrushes. I feel so spoiled!

My Secret Santa was @Jac13. I was thrilled with everything. I used the Glamour Doll Eyes, Dr. Brandt pores no more, jcat wonder lip paint, and bodyography electric lip slide for a look the same night I got it for a birthday party.

 

I also received an Ulta lip sick, benefit the porefessional (which I love), klorane dry shampoo (another favorite), and two sample of body lotion by 100% pure.

 

Thank you so much.

 On the tenth day of Christmas, my Santa gave to me : 10 Tasty Treats!

 

The large box was crammed full of all kinds of goodies for the whole family to enjoy!! Momma and DH were completely thrilled about this gift!

 

  Three Chuao Chocolate bars. my fave Firecracker for me, and two bars of Maple Bacon for Momma and DH!

 

 A jar of Sarabeth's Mixed Berry jelly! DH was in a lather hollering " dibs! dibs! " But he will share it :)

 

 Assortment of Hot Cocoa mixes!!! Three different flavors and each flavor makes three serving, so everyone gets to try them all!

 

 Two different breath mints!! I always keep multiple packs in my purse because I constantly worry that I might have bad breath.

 

Three different snacks from Krema Nut Co. !! I had never heard of the company, but I will definitely look into placing an order next month! Buckeye Crunch which is caramel corn, dipped in peanut butter, then covered in chocolate!  White chocolate dipped pretzels and Championship Mix, a savory snack mix that if I were selfish I would keep all for myself, but I'll share it around.

 

  We are waiting until Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to lay siege to all the snackies!

 

  Two more gifts await, and the anticipation is sweet torture.

 

Recap:

 

1 Tote Bag (with dry shampooo)

2 Fragrance Samples in two of my favorite scents

3 Pet treats, two for cats one for dawgster

4 Nail items, three polishes and a cuticle balm

5 face products, BB cream, blotting linens, Chella pencil, Beauty Blender and full size Fakeup

6 Household Items , Holiday dish towel, two fabulous candles, BBW handsoap, and two superlative Alhambra items, ( tray and container )

7 Handcrafted Gifts, cards, ornaments, salt scrub and purple lace scarf

8 Facial products, cleansers, cloths, moisturizers and makeup remover

9 Luscious Lippies:  YSL, Dior, UD, Too Faced , Shiro, IT Cosmetics, Laqa,Fresh, Doterra

10 Tasty Treats, assorted goodies for the whole family, nom-nom!!

Uh.  No.  She doesn't.  She can't figure out how she got lucky enough to get you as her Santa.  She worries that *her* Santee feels cheated, though!

 

(I'm sorry I've probably been more low-key than I usually am this week!  I've been in a bit of a funk because of family stuff.  I'm really looking forward to being on the other side of this, but I have a feeling it's going to be like this for a while.)

post-97531-0-34732400-1419204350_thumb.jpg

 

Kusmi tea, yum!! I sampled a bag of Kusmi tea in Birchbox like a year ago and have always been wanting to buy some but I just haven't yet.  Also, I've been really wanting to get into loose leaf tea in general but I was like, do I really need another interest right now?! lol  I'm so glad you got me this though b/c this will push me into giving it a try, it smells AMAZING!

 

Nail polish remover is always welcome and I'm so excited for this little Ciate duo!!

Xmas Eve Mani party on MUT anyone??

Oh, hell, yeah!  I'm currently planning on changing to Black Luna Christmas Morning (from last December's GDE OTM bag) that night.  I have A Plan, just like a Cylon!  And just like Ron Moore, I make it up as I go along!

Yay! I thought that tea sounded so yummy and I love Kusmi.  I have a rose green tea from them that I adore. We do loose leaf teas in a little teapot all the time--you just rinse out the filter. Like this one:

So excited to see what comes next :)

ME TOO!!  And for all of this waiting tracking has only said it stopped in two places.  A long wait would have been easier if I could have watched it bounce all over the country!

    • I’m afraid that this resource does not become a “breeding ground” for viruses that will then spread at the speed of light. Therefore, I advise all visitors to read the https://thinkmobiles.com/blog/best-free-antimalware/ blog, which clearly states why this or that antivirus and its characteristics are used. Just do not be indifferent to these problems and selfish.
    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
