Well I have some exciting packages coming in the mail in the next few weeks. You know that feeling when you were a kid at Christmas and you just.couldn't.wait for it to arrive. That's how I feel about expecting a parcel. Even more so when it's a gift, and I don't know what's inside.
Today I got one of those packages...and I'm still on a buzz from it. This is what I found waiting for me when I got home this afternoon.
Oh hello box of wonderfulness that I just can't wait to open. I actually tortured myself for a bit, just staring at it, turning it around, looking at the label. You will see that in my excitement I didn't give a lot of thought to the background for these photos.
I slowly opened it...
I believe upside down.... I blame Mr. J, who made me panic with offers of help when I couldn't get it open neatly and I was afraid he was going to take over.
And this is what was inside...... *sigh, my God I'm dramatic aren't I?
Oh yah, fist pump..high five..happy dance! This was my lovely prize from the giveaway that Jayme & Mendi of Her Late Night Cravings held. These ladies went out of their way to do this for me. There was an issue with the original prize, in that it was a gift card from a company that didn't ship to Canada, when using a gift card (frustrating). I was more than willing to give up the prize & try my luck next time but they wouldn't hear of it. So sweet & although not expected, it was appreciated.
You ladies pegged me so well...I am thrilled with my prize! I LOVE Fix+ and it was on my Christmas list in fact. It is one of those must have items for sure. The MAC lip conditioner is one I've been wanting to try, and it's already stowed on my nightstand, I can't wait to use it. The MAC make-up wipes are perfect. Just today I was lurking around the make-up wipes at the drugstore. I have never treated myself to these wipes & I feel so fancy having them. I just love everything, including the sweet note..thank you so very much.
If you don't already subscribe to their blog, please go check them out. I also love watching their videos, which are like sitting around with your girlfriends & a glass of wine and talking all things beauty. My very favourite are their Beauty Battles, where they each try out a product and then review it live without knowing what the other thinks. Always entertaining. They also some 'day in the life' type videos..one that my brother even watched when they went to a college football game. Go check out their Youtube channel, you'll be hooked.
Thanks again Jayme & Mendi..you made this 'not a kid' feel like a kid at Christmas today and I love it all!
