Because it wouldn’t be Christmas without some new books to while away the winter with. Here’s what my loving family and friends showered me with this Christmas:Photo Dec 28, 2 39 05 PM

This Philosophy “Falling In Love” perfume is my favorite scent: not too sweet, light and airy, and a little romantic. I heard whispers that they’re being discontinued, so I think I’m going to stock up on this fragrance before the new year.

I’m kind of obsessed with the texture and richness of these shades and find them superior to my Mac shadows. I’m going to review it in full soon, but for now it’s fun to play with new eyeshadow looks. I wore the “Silk Teddy” and the “Chocolate Martini” on Christmas Day.

Photo Dec 28, 2 43 05 PMA bright new leather bag to store books, notebooks, chargers, and all the random accoutrements of working and writing from home, from London Fog. It’s sturdy and beautiful, and it’s got a compartment on the side for my new iPhone, a gold 5S to replace my old 4S that lasted me over three years! I think it’s time for an upgrade.

And, of course, the books:

I’m so excited to add these to my 2015 reading list. January means lying on my couch with chocolate and books, for days at a time. Can’t wait.

  • I HAVE THAT TOO FACED PALETTE!! Sorry, I didn’t mean to get overexcited, but it is seriously THE BEST and I’m so glad that someone else thinks so, too!! It’s superior to my Stila In the Light palette by an order of magnitude, and I think it’s better than the Naked 3 palette, too. 🙂

    • So happy you said that! I thought it was crazy how good this palette is. I love the creaminess and I think all of the shades are perfect for natural eyes and natural smokey eyes. I seriously look forward to doing my eye makeup every day just so I can play with these. 🙂 I too have the Naked palette, 2 I think, and these are definitely better.
