I was so excited to receive a package from my Secret Santa... especially when I found it was none other than Jean from ExtraPetite! She sent me a whole bunch of goodies with a sweet hand-written note.
I love how everything was so personalized and carefully chosen! She remembered practically everything I've ever mentioned and sent me: liquid eyeliner for me to practice my rudimentary make-up application skills, an Ulta brush for my Rock & Republic blush that I'd asked her about, and Kiehl's eye cream for my worsening dark circles that I'd once mentioned in a comment.
Last but not least, she got me this pretty necklace:
... that's a perfect match for my teal Ann Taylor ruffle blouse that she knew I had:
Stylepint, enjoys her gift as much as I enjoyed mine!
I also very unexpectedly received a couple other surprises in the mail this month, including a ton of goodies from Elle of FastFoodAndFastFashion:
And finally, I'd recently tweeted to Sydney of PetiteLittleGirl about her Eos lipbalm, and she surprised me with one!
The best part of my holidays this year though wasn't about the gifts - it was all the people I have in my life, both old and new. I feel so incredibly blessed to have met so many wonderful ladies online, and have never felt more like part of a community. I truly want to thank my readers and fellow bloggers for all their support, and I hope everyone is having a happy holidays!! :)
