When I saw Eki post previews on her site last week, I was immediately attracted to the Alice in Wonderland pouches! The print is very pretty and yet with a hint of mystery or mischievousness since we all know Alice is the It girl for following her curiosity, exploring the unknown and discovering the many wonders that life has to offer. Who doesn't love Alice in Wonderland?
It takes a very sweet person to send someone else a love package right before her birthday, but that's exactly what she did! Smh. She sent me what she called a "little" thank you gift....it was not little at all!
Kind of old (really old), but Lush on Twitter was doing mini raffle giveaways last month and I won! (I was one of many lucky people to win since they did lots of mini giveaways.) Coming home to this in the mail box really made me smile.
Since I'd finished using the Boscia set and the season and weather changed from warmer summer to drier fall and winter, I'd moved on to the DHC Q10 Travel Set. I was fortunate to receive this from Kay, but you can also find it on the U.S. website. I finished this set just as 2009 came to an end.
I got a love-filled box from Mona a few weeks ago. She and I share an addiction for hauling sheet masks and so she sent me tons to try! I took these pictures over a rainy/cloudy weekend, which is why the lighting isn't so good but I really wanted to use some of the masks right away.
An entire calendar year of blogging has introduced to me to wayyyyyyyy more beauty products than I would have tried or lusted for otherwise! But rather than haul every so-called amazing product out there, I have to admit I'm rather choosy about what I get, and spend a lot of time (too much time), lusting and debating before I even get something! (Impulse shopper I am not!) So here's my list of the favorite products I've encountered in 2009.
Boscia Oil-Free Daily Hydration SPF 15
Great moisturizer for spring and summer if you have oily-to-combination skin! It moisturizes without causing your skin to become oily.
Boscia Balancing Tonic
I love this so much that I just bought a full size bottle after using quite a few different toners this year! It's refreshing and smells nice.
