Christmas Gift Haul!

This is just a quick post on my gifts I got for Christmas. I didn't expect to get this much, maybe it's not a lot to you, but I sure was grateful for all that I got! :)


Hello Kitty popcorn tin and a crock pot. (From mom and dad)

Hello Kitty mouse pad. (From the brother)

Holiday throw blanket with toss pillow. (From mom and dad)

Gloves and scarf from the hubby, socks, pink hoodie, and pj's from my mom and dad.

Label Maker, Necklace, and Michael Jackson Dance game! (From the hubby)

New Wii Controler (From the hubby)

Chocolate! (From the hubby)

Britney Spears original Curious Perfume. I had this years ago and love the way it smells, so I was really happy to get it again. (From the hubby)

Two Sephora Gift Cards. (One from my mom and dad, and one from my brother)



Last but not least, I got a Kindle! My Dad and Mom got me the Kindle and my brother got me the nice pink cover to keep it protected. I LOVE my Kindle! It's my new obsession! I take it with me everywhere. When the Kindle first came out, I didn't get it, I thought what's the point. I've always loved to read and like to have a book physically in my hand, but now that I have my Kindle, it's just so easy and convenient! If your sitting somewhere waiting, it's so easy to just pull it out and catch up on some reading and pass the time. You can even play Scrabble on it! I love it!! :)

I wasn't the only one who got a lot of gifts, my son got an insane amount of gifts from all of us. He's an only child and only grandchild though, so I guess we go a little crazy for him. :)

Well I'd like to thank my husband, mom, dad, and brother for all the wonderful gifts! I am so grateful and love everything! :)

What did you all get for Christmas? Any New Kindle owners out there? Have any favorite books you would like to share? Let me know some of your favorites in the comments.

Lorac Tie Dye For Lip Gloss Collection Review and Swatches

For quite some time I have been telling myself NO MORE LIP GLOSS! I have a drawer full of lip gloss that is neglected. I went through it some time ago and thought I should try to at least get through a few tubes before I bought anymore, BUT being the beauty blogger...(beauty hoarder), that I am I couldn't resist this set from Lorac! :)


They are just so pretty to look at! :D

I came across these while browsing around in Ulta. I swatched the testers and wow was I surprised at how nicely pigmented they are.

I love my lip gloss to have pigmentation. I don't care for sheer lip glosses, so I new I had to make an acception for these! :D

This is also a great deal, you get five Full Size lip glosses for $25.


The set contains five glosses that each have swirls of different colors in the tube to create a beautiful shade. There's a red, plum, rosey pink, peachy nude, and a bright pink.






All of the colors have a subtle shimmer in them.

They are not sticky and feel moisturizing on the lips.

The packaging is nice. The applicator is a brush tip applicator, but the only minor issue I have with these is the brush tip feels very small, smaller than an average brush tip applicator. If you have small lips then it probably wouldn't be an issue for you, but I have full lips so it seems like it takes a bit longer to apply it.

I'm really happy I picked up this set. The colors are beautiful and the price is great!

This would make a really great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer. You can also tie each one to a gift with some ribbon and make it look really pretty.

The Tie Dye For Lip Gloss Collection can be found at Ulta, Sephora, or http://loraccosmetics.com/ .

What do you think of this set? Have you tried it? Giving it as a gift? Let me know in the comments.
