Secret Santa 2014 Reveals

Recommended Posts

--Speaking of beautiful wrapping, where do you get all your wrapping paper, Santa??! In my household, it's amazing if we have like two different wrapping papers a year >.>

 

GhfmEg8.jpgThis is what I was going to open today...

TRAVEL TAGS!!! This will be so perfect when I hit the road again *__* Amazing!! Thanks so much.

Seriously, how amazing is this wrapping, guys? I'm so embarrassed looking at my own wrapping now...

 

xoIId3e.jpgOMG THESE CANDLES ARE SO ADORABLE. I've really really gotten into candles recently and it'll be extra nice since it's soooo cold in my house right now.

....and then I wanted to open one more. >.> So I did. (There are still like 4 left, guys! @[email protected] Why am I so slow. My dining room is too cold.)

 

vGEPwCI.jpgAAAAAHhhhhhhhh so amazingly adorable! Thank you so much Santa. I've always wanted to try these colors, but never got around to picking them up.

 

--and then I proceeded to not post this and paint my nails instead, hahaha. I was going to incorporate the red Revlon santa gave me too that was in the other bag, but I am too sloppy right now.

The middle Germanicure color~~ What a beautiful and perfect color for fall (shhh......let me pretend it's fall for a few more days.)

 

 

Thank you so much Santa!. I can't want to see what's tomorrow *____*

Can your santa come over and wrap all my gifts? that is some great wrapping and gifts too.

I'm also inwardly criging because my wrapping paper is leftover from last year!  :unsure:

All of mine is too, but I don't think people are going to judge by the age of the paper, lol.

Stop that! I have wrapping paper that's at least 8 years old now. (I had it before the last time I moved... over 8 years ago) Besides, I'll buy wrapping paper after Christmas when it's at the "please, we'll pay you to get rid of it so we don't have to store it until next year" phase. And I'll also buy wrapping paper if it looks pretty darned nifty and hang onto it for a couple years until its used up. It can't really go out of style, that's why they make those wrapping paper storage containers, to encourage you to buy paper at discount and save it!

 

I've also bought paper that's marketed towards one holiday and use it on another. Like that all fancy holographic paper sold at Christmas? Works as year round paper, or a red paper with offtone red scallop designs? That works for Valentines Day.

 

I guess what I'm saying is... don't feel bad because you have leftover paper, embrace the potential possibilities to use it! :D

I actually like when paper is reused haha. To me, all those wrinkles in paper just show that someone saw something of value in it. I don't know, I just really like saving paper.

My SS package has arrived (according to Fedex tracking)! However, it's locked up in our building's management office because I got home from work too late...unfortunately, I'm going to get home late tomorrow, so I'll get it first thing on Saturday morning...womp womp...   

 

Just wanted to let my SS know that I received it (will post an update when it's in my hands)!  :santa:

@@Kristine Walker - You don't know how happy I was when I saw a package with your name on it to me! At first I thought, 'wait - it's too early for my turn at the next Calibama box....whoa no way - she's my SS!!!"

 

The past few weeks have been crazy at work, and I'm just about burned out, but your insanely thoughtful and carefully composed present was exactly the warm hug that I needed, especially during the torrential down-pour of a rainy winter night. It put a huge smile on my face, and I'm smiling still, just thinking about how lucky I am to have met and made such a good friend on MUT. 

 

Now to the box!!!

HAHA! Packed to the gills! - And the wrapping is just fine :) It's just easier for me to tear into! Though it took me a good 45 minutes to open everything up!

Kristine knows me so well :) I loooove skincare and Tocca is one of my favorite scents - for hands too!!! and that blood orange tube smells wonderful! AND I've just finished my tube of the exact same lemon green tea hand cream - Perfect timing!

 

post-89387-0-09356400-1417755262_thumb.jpg

Speaking of blood orange, The Pacifica blood orange lotion was one of my favorites when I got it in a sample box, but I've held off on buying a new one - but now I don't have to - and it comes with a roller ball in the same awesome scent. 

 

post-89387-0-55318700-1417755323_thumb.jpg

More skincare (love paula's choice, and I'm currently using a full size of the skin perfection BHA lotion). LOVE malin &goetz. And I'm excited to try the push-up liner - supposedly totally no-budge, which is exactly what I'm looking for. 

 

post-89387-0-84915700-1417755349_thumb.jpg

HAHA! This has been on my Birchbox favorites list for the longest time, but I never bit the bullet to get it! Illume is one of my favorite candle brands. And it smells like cedar - which is exactly what I need with this cold weather.

 

post-89387-0-03033700-1417755391_thumb.jpg

MORE boxes to open! 

 

post-89387-0-29588000-1417755449_thumb.jpg

HAHAH!!!!!!  I think they love it!!!! At least Wally does!

So I got an elfster message asking if I liked Ramen (which I do), and voila! a ramen cooker. This is the perfect example of totally not knowing that you need something. I've always just broken off the corners of square ramen blocks to fit into round bowls (yeah...insert square peg round hole joke here....) But now there are no more broken ramen blocks!!!

 

And that Lancome pallette is gorgeous! The highlighter and blush are great colors for my skin tone, and the bronzer will be used a base eyeshadow shade.  I'm excited!

 

post-89387-0-24733900-1417755614_thumb.jpg

Very interesting packaging - chicken treats with my holy grail eyeshadow primer. I'm interested to see how the eye serum works - it's next in line! And that chicken toy is awesome! I'm going to try it out once the weather dries out a bit. I can imagine it's like those doggie toys where you stuff peanutbutter into them :)

 

post-89387-0-78122300-1417755664_thumb.jpg

And the total package - Amazing! I am so thankful and lucky to have @@Kristine Walker as my (now not so) secret santa, Calibama swap-mate, and MUT friend. You are awesome!!!!!

What a great gift! Despite the fact that chickens (and all birds) scare the crap out of me, it was fun seeing one turn up in the reveal thread. I never would have thought that chicken toys existed.

The chicken toys and treats are awesome!   :D

That reveal definitely cheered me up after some frustration with the interwebs.  You ladies are great!

@@tgooberbutt Oh I am so thrilled that you like it!!! Many hugs to you :)

PS - I forgot to mention - I wore the socks today! :) red cheetah on brown/grey is a little out there for me, but they are so comfortable, and they fit perfectly - no toe wads or baggy heels. They are now a part of the regular sock rotation during boot season :)

@@tgooberbutt So happy you liked the socks! I had opened the package, but one look I knew they would never fit my 10w paddleboat feet. There is something else on the way, after I mailed out I found a present had got left out, so keep your eyes peeled!

Oh my gossh, okay I can finally post! I have been chomping at the bit since the mail came, but I couldn't upload the pictures - and I need the pictures, to show how amazing a gifter, a person and an artist my Santa was. And the person in question.... @@MIKAGlam! :hugs3:  Now the goodies! I think I will have to break this up because it is picture heavy.

 

 

 

When I opened my box I immediately knew that I was going to very happy with the contents - the bag is so cute and just my style!

IMG_1379.jpg

 

And then when I started pulling goodies out I was totally overwhelmed...

IMG_1380-1.jpg

 

She had written the sweetest note, that totally made me laugh because some part were so me that I just sat there going, "yup, yup, I know the feeling". :lol: I have no self control so there was no way I could wait until Christmas, but I did follow the instructions on the order to open them in. :D

IMG_1381.jpg

 

I would have been happy stopping after one because CANDY!!! There is nothing here I don't like, and I especially adore the Mickey and Minnie Jelly Bellies. So cute!

IMG_1382-1.jpg

 

This next gift was gorgeous and so lovely - this will fit right in with my bedroom decor, in fact I already have a spot planned for it! The classic Mickey pose and the neutral colors are everything I love in home decor!

IMG_1383-1.jpg

 

And the last one before I stop - and one of the most amazing gifts I have ever been given. A little secret: when I read that @@MIKAGlam was doing prints for her her Secret Santa was just the tiniest, slightest little bit envious. I love all art, but am horrifically untalented at it, so to be the recipient of such a beautiful, home made gift brought me to tears. I like to think that I will come with some appropriately creative and beautiful way to display them, but most likely I will hoard them and bring the out so often to gaze at in awe. Thank you so much for the time and effort, everything is perfect!

I've got to get dinner on but then I will be back with part two,,,, the cosmetics part, muahaha! :wub: :wub:

    • I think your nails are sexy as hell and even shaving legs is something I have thought about. It is girly but I like that feminine touch and some women are very fucking turned on seeing a guy express that side of himself, especially if it comes to outdoing the woman with even better nails, or wearing sexier lipstick than her. Like you said if it is sexy/classy and wild and makes you feel very deluxe and sexy then go for it!! Why not?? People have an issue with it then f*** them. always gonna have haters. They are just jealous, we support you!! -Micheal

    • I regrew my hair and you can too. –I've been bleaching my hair on and off since forever. My hair wouldn't grow any longer it would just snap off. I've dreamed about having thick, long hair. And when I say dreamed, I mean it quite literally. So I decided to do something about it. My friend suggested Biotin when we were talking about my hair loss. I’ve tried like 4 different brands until I found that the best one for me. For me, the best is https://bit.ly/2KiqCge my friends also use this one.
    • Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don't know what to do. My hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should I do to regrow hair?
