I was blessed with amazing presents this Christmas and several have become beloved items. This season it was hard to chose what I loved the most but here is what I have been loving!
I love the Naked 2 Basics pallet. Because of my glasses, I have found that matte shades look best on me and I am in love with these colors! For an everyday work look, I spread Frisk on my eyelids, Stark in my crease, and Skimp right under my brow. Then I take a little bit of Cover and/or Primal and blend it into my outer corner. I finish the look with a bit of Skimp in my inner corner and Undone on my lash line. I get to use the whole pallet and I look great!
This season, these products have saved my face! Every night, I clean off my face with a Neutrogena Grapefruit Cleansing Wipe. I remove my eye makeup with Estee Lauder's Eye Makeup Remover because it is gentle and effective. Then I wet my face and EcoTools Sensitive Pure Complexion Sponge with lukewarm water. I apply a small amount of Burt's Bees Acne Solutions Cleanser and scrub my face. After I rinse and pat dry my face, I apply the Mary Kay Botanical Moisturizer. Now, I only get pimples if I skip my routine!
Yet another Christmas present that has become my winter favorite is my monogrammed chambray shirt from Etsy! I wear it most often with my pink skinny jeans from Gap and riding boots. It also looks great with black leggings and ballet flats. I can dress it up with a floral scarf or dress it down with sneakers. Either way, I can find a way to wear this every day.
This movie made me laugh and cry. I love Baymax and everything that he represents. I feel like he is the Disney version of Totoro, which makes me love him even more. This is a great movie for the whole family and I highly recommend it!
As you may remember, I received this book for Christmas and I was super excited. I read it in about 3-days and loved every minute of it! The characters are very well-written and developed. I loved the plot and the giant twist at the end. I really hope that Zoe writes another novel soon!
These two candles are perfect. I burn them together to create a soothing scent that lingers for hours. I love Bath and Body Works candles and I will be burning this for as long as I can. Next Christmas I will probably stock up on these scents.
I included this darling bubble bar in my Lush haul post but it has taken me almost 3 months to get around to using it. Oh goodness you guys, this is the most amazing bubble bar I have ever used! Half of this little buddy made movie style bubbles that were thick and huge! After about 30 minutes I had to wash them down the train because I was done before they were. The scent was not too strong and did not linger on my body. However, my tub did smell really nice for a few days!
I was tempted to include a Christmas decoration here however, you guys have already seen all of mine during the 10 Day of Merry series. Starting January 1st, I add tiny touches of Valentine's Day to our home because February is the month of love! In our dining room, you will find this tiny set up under a Valentine's Day themed quote which I found on Pinterest and framed. I recived the sparkly red heart in a floral arrangement from my dad last year. The flower pen and pencil are left over valentines that I made for sorority sisters in college. I found the milk jar at Michael's and the glitterly cupcake at Hobby Lobby. Of course, I added a wedding photo for a personal touch!
This was also included in my Christmas haul post and I have to say that it was an amazing gift! I try to play this every night for exercise and J and I get a kick out of watching our videos! My favorite songs are Addicted to You and Black Widow.
