Hi guys! Late post tonight, I know, but I just wanted to share (almost) all the Christmas gifts I got this year from friends and my lovely blogger ladies. I came home last Sunday to a positive HEAP of packages inside my mailbox and had even more to go pick up at the leasing office and post office the next day! And I got over twice as many holiday greeting cards this year than last, so I was so very, very happy. I really love getting cards. I put them all up on my refrigerator and I swear I almost cried when I took that picture. I sent out/gave 58 cards this year (albeit a good half-ish to colleagues, supervisors and family) but I usually only receive ~4 back. Last year I even got one from my mom in April along with my birthday card LOL. So, seeing all the cards on my fridge this year made me feel so loved and appreciated. ♥
The adorable Jess sent me a package totally out of the blue to thank me for helping her buy Chanel Trapeze nail polish! I feel so spoiled! She sent me two Silk Whitia sheet masks, a hand mask, a Labello, tons of samples and tons of TEA!!! I was so surprised to receive her package. Thank you so much Jess!!!
|From Diana, I got an adorable card, Steap Tea’s Winter Elixir, Sinful nail polishes in Pearl Harbor and Nail Junkie (&hearts!!!), and yummy chocolates!||Sarah sent me a beautiful pair of her Moto Jewelry earrings, B&BW mini hand sanitizer in Sweet Pea (my favorite!), a super cute bar of soap, and nummy chocolates!|
I am positively loving the Winter Elixir tea – I can’t even really describe it except to say that it’s refreshing and warming at the same time! And AHHHH NAIL JUNKIE!!!! Positive LOVE!!! Diana knew I’ve been looking for this polish forever!! Funny enough, I actually snapped it up when SO and I went to a Walgreens up in San Jose, so now I have two bottles teehee. :D Also, funny story, when I cut open Sarah’s package, I actually accidentally cut the Kit Kat a little bit LOL. Sarah always stuffs her packages to the brim to spoil me with yummy candies!! Thank you guys!!!! ♥♥♥
|I won Mona’s MBD Mask giveaway and she was kind enough to send me the most adorable Christmas card I have EVER seen, as well as China Glaze Jetstream too! (I’m wearing it right now :D).||The ever practical Jen sent me an AWESOME new waterbottle (spill-proof!) as well as fat-free brownie mix! I still haven’t made them yet because I don’t have any yogurt LOL!|
Mona actually sent me 5 masks, but I was so excited to have MBD masks again I used one of the Apple Polyphenol ones that evening before I had a chance to take pictures LOL. And I swear Jen, I am picking up yogurt the next time we go to Trader Joe’s (probably tomorrow) so I can finally make those brownies! Thank you so much guys!!! ♥♥♥
And of course, SO bought me the Zoe Chicco Bow Ring in sterling silver. I picked it out from Hautelook one morning during finals week hahaha. I had literally been looking at pictures of similar rings in CanCam and Ray the night before so I was suuuuuper excited about it! Bow motifs are so in this year! I think even Tiffany’s had a bow jewelry collection (but of course $$$$ with pave diamonds or something!). I couldn’t find the ad to take a picture of… but I think my ring’s cuter hehe. He also got me a super cute Christmas card for the first time! :D :D :D
Whew! That was a lot of stuff!!!! And my San Diego friends and I haven’t even exchanged Christmas gifts yet since we didn’t have time between finals and everyone leaving for break LOL! Still, I have to say, you guys really made Christmas ’09 one of my best Christmases EVER! ♥♥♥
