I have always loved reading haul blog posts…especially Christmas and Birthday present hauls!
So I thought it would be fun to share all of the wonderful fashion, home decor, and beauty related gifts that I was blessed with from my loved ones this past Christmas. So let’s get started!!
My brother was super generous this year and gifted me with 3 awesome pairs of Nike trainers!
He did such a great job in picking out cute styles with fun colors! And I just bought a Nike+ chip over the holidays, so I am excited to try that out.I received this beautiful scarf from one of my sweet friends. I have been wearing it almost every single day since I got it, it is so soft and warm! And I have been loving this AHAVA hand cream (which smells sooo good) and cute sequin pouch from Ann Taylor that I received from my Aunt.I also received a bunch of fun new beauty related items!!! I am lip product junky…so I have been loving both the NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in color Pink Frosting & the Smashbox Lip Gloss in color Ruby (pictured towards the bottoms of the above picture) from some of my girlfriends.
So funny story…my Mother handed both my sister and I square wrapped packages and told us that we could swap them or keep what we were about to unwrap…well as luck would have it my sister got a palette that totally suits her coloring and I ended up opening this Benefit “Feelin’ Dandy” palette that suits my lighter skin tone.I really haven’t had a chance to use this palette much since I got it, but I have owned Benefit’s High Beam in the past and loved using it as a highlighter…and I have always wanted to try the Posie Tint!My Aunt was also super sweet and gave me this adorable 3 pack of Clinique Chubby Sticks in colors Two Ton Tomato, Pudgy Peony, and Voluptuous Violet. I love how they look like giant crayons!
My mother had also asked me right before Christmas what I wanted from Santa and I told her that I needed a new blowdryer (with retractable cord), bobby pins, and hair ties. So guess what Santa brought me?! :)
Well it’s getting late…and because I don’t want this post to drag on, I thought I would split it up into two separate posts. I will try and post the second part of my present haul tomorrow. :)
