  2. GREAT post. I think you got some of the best items available. Every man should have a copy so he can not mess up christmas (or even birthday) gifts!!!!!!! xx

  3. Thank you, hun! I hope my Mr takes a hint and gets me the Z palette... I got some of these for friends and family, hope they like their gifts! x

  4. I love those kind of posts some bloggers are doing for Christmas times. Do many great ideas!

    I'm very curious about Lush Snow Fairy, it seems to be such a staple, but it appears very pricey )=

  5. Hi hun, a sales girl at Lush told me it always works out most effectively cost-wise to buy bigger bottles of their shower gels, but also in my experience, a medium bottle lasts up to 3 months, so it's definitely not bad in the long run. Also, their Godmother bar soap smells very similar, and a small chunk lasts even longer! Hope that helps :)

  6. oh gosh, since you posted those urban decay eyeliners, I'm in love with them :)

  7. What wonderful gift ideas. I absolutely love Christmas and shopping for others. You have now given me another idea for my bestie. Happy Holidays and I am your newest follower.
