What I got for xmas 2011 =]

Hey everyone!, anyone going back to school yet? My classes starts next MONDAY(1/9/12) >< not that excited. I'm taking an extra course as a backup just so that I can make sure I have more than enough credits to graduate this term =D. So happpy to finally graduate SOON =O.. Only 4 more months of school =D but I have no idea what I wanna do after that aside from being a freelance makeup artist... mmmmmm?!?!??!


Anyways, on to the pretty stuff I got for xmas.  Just a heads up, I don't exchange presents with every single family member (like brother, brothers in law etc..) and don't exchange presents with every girlfriends (because we do secret santas within different groups of friends so that's much better =D) oh and lastly, because bf and I are trying to save up money for our future and since we don't want anything (materialistic) this year we decided to not spend money on presents and save it up for future needs. We stayed home on xmas day, made diiner and watched a couple of reallly good movies the CLICK, and a chinese movie called Yip Mann (chinese translation of the name). This is a Chinese Kung Fu movie based on a true story. Yip Mann is the Kung Fu Master/teacher of Bruce Lee. It was such a goooood movie!! I loveeeeee it!!...wowww I am so OFF topic.. opps

Ok here we go....

SISTER

Sorry about the picture, it won't upload right -_-
Anyways, this was from my lovely sister =D. She went on a cruise trip before xmas and she brought me gooooooodiesss from the cruise and I was so happy to see baby lips =O. I wanted to try this a while back as well as the Revlon lip butters but lip butters are rare to find in stores here in Canada =[. This wasn't my xmas gift (we actually didn't buy each other anything =P) but was a souvenirs. I thought might as well include it into this post since they are makeup =D. Thank you sis!!, love everything! The lipstick is soo pretty on too!^^

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in 096 Petal
Baby Lips SPF 20 Lip Balm in 30 Peach Kiss
Revlon Fabulash Waterproof Mascara in 021 Blackest Black

SISTER-IN-LAW/GIFT EXCHANGE
This is what my sister-in-law bought me and what I got at their xmas party during a xmas exchange =D. I loveeeee MERCI chocolate, it comes in so many different flavours and I just love their packaging, it's almost like a wrapper u find at a pita shop. The top half of the chocolate wrapper will rip off while the other half will stay on =D. Thank you sis for getting me soo much!! I didn't even buy you anything! =[. I couldn't find the bamboo decorations that you wanted from IKEA =[. Maybe I'll get you a hot pot stove/pot set =D. I know your house is lacking in one ;) (I'm writing as if she's reading this but I swear she barely knows about my blog =P)
From the gift exchange: Fruits & Passion-CUCINA Green Decorative diffuser set also includes a 4.2 fl. oz. bottle on Lemon Zests diffuser fragrance
From my sis-in-law: Decorative Set in Yellow, Lavanila Laboratories-The Healthy Body Butter in Vanilla Lavender and Merci European Chocolate. THank you thank you =D great additions to my bf's place =D

GIFT EXCHANGE
This next gift is also from a gift exchange from the same party that my brother and sister in law hosted =D. This is what my bf got but I stole it from him MUAHAHAHAHAA^^

I've never seen anything like that =O and her package arrived nicely wrapped with black and silver paper and bows. It was soo pretty it was literally like a wrapped present I would find under my xmas tree^^. Thank you LOVE for what you got me I loveeeee them soo much and you were soooooooo generous!!Thank you =D

Isn't it cute? =O, I spent like 10 minutes admiring this card alone and taking pictures of it that I almost forgot to open the rest of package! s2

2 pairs of awesome lashes!!, Have yet to try them but I'm so excited to!! ^^. She knows I'm a newbie at applying lashes and she knows I'm dying to practice it so it was nice she included them =D
MAC Iced Delights Lip Bag in Sultry-Lovely colours and I don't have many mac items so I was excited to receive this. Thank you thank you babe!
She also got me soem of my favourite sweet snacks! I don't know how she managed to know because I rarely like sweets I prefer saltly or sour snacks but seriously I loveeeee ferrero rocher (note that one of them didn't make it to picutre time ;) ). I also LOVEEEE HI-CHEW candies!! ANDDD also loveeeeeeeeeeee MANOG flavoured things =O omggg seriously she's psychic or something =O
  
RALUCA
 Next lovely package was from the lovelyyyyyyy Raluca of Raluca's Beauty and Style! I'm so thankful to have met her here on blogger! She is sooo nice and healpful and wayyyy too generous.. WAYYY too generous. You will see when I blog about our swap. Your jaw willl drop like mine did.. But you guys will read about that later.
She surprised me with another package during xmas and I was like "WHAT? omg nooooooooooooo =[". I was in the process of sending her a surprise thank you package/xmas package and when I told her to keep an eye on her mail box cuz santa was gonna visit her she said "you too ;)". I was like ":OOOO, what?!?!?!?". She is wayyyyyyy too nice and generous not kidding with you. We are both a lover of the film "The Secret" have any of you watched it? I recommend it, it's so inspirational.
I was sooo happy to have met her and have so much in common with her =D. Thank you Raluca pleaseee don't send me anymoreee, you are wayyy too generous>< s2 s2 s2. I can never repay you enough if you keep this pattern up =P

She wrote the sweetest card ever ^^

Oh wow what awesome gifts :D :D
Great idea with gift exchanges! I need to make my family do that idea rather then buy everyone something.
I can't wait to see what you think of your hair curling wand!
And strawberry sorbet eos! Omg I want!
I hope you like the baby lips, and so funny we recently got such similar things:)
Ooo Mac Stuff!!
Enjoy everything, it sounds like Xmas was good with food and movies!:)

woo love hi chews! :D so nice of Jen to send you those :) I can't wait for her future post on her baby boy.

And about the korean stationery,I bought it via a local blog shop so I don't know how to get it directly from Korean. Thou I suspect that it was through GMarket.

So far the Milani eyeliners are doing me well,easy to apply and stays on quite well. Ah...sad how stuffs are more expensive in Canada eventhough USA is just right next door .__.

First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a
quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself and
clear your mind before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my
thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but
it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

Kudos!

Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about making my
own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers
