What I Got For Christmas: Part 2

Although this package from my BFF did arrive before Christmas. I didn't have time to make it to my post office to pick it up.

But I rushed to the post office after work today, finally it is in my possession. Yay!
My BFF, I call her Laysa. I've been calling her that since 1997. Her real name will remain anonymous. We love gifting our own favourites to one another. We love humour ♥

This year Laysa sent me a box load of KITTENS. Grey ones and Orange ones. Just joking! Look at the pictures and you will see what I mean.

List of Gifts...

2 CD - May 2013 San Francisco Trip. Laysa and I walked, cabbed, bused all around town. Here is the evidence that we were there :)

1 CD - New Tunes from Arcade Fire, A$AP Rocky, Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, Drake, Fitz & The Tantrums (yes I have tantrums lol), Justice, Kendrik Lamar & Kings of Leon.

Seche Vite - dry fast top coat. I heard a lot of good things about this top coat from YouTube. Can't wait to try it.

I've been wanting to try this for ages. It's been so talked about on YT.

Ghirardelli chocolate squares - Peppermint Bark. Awww I remember we were looking for this in the Ghirardelli factory and store. No luck in the summer.

Laysa found 'em. Well we tried to find them in the off season of Summer.

Vero Moda - A gold chevron sparkly top, just in time for New Years yay! I love this brand and have bought this brand for Laysa for years.

Here's the fierce gold chevron tee Laysa got me. I love it! It's not too sparkly so I can still wear it to work :)

I also received a gluten free bible from Laysa. A cookbook I already own, but to my surprise the recipes are different. Too funny :)

Laysa got my GF Bible a friend :) And the recipes are different! YAY!

Thank you thank you thank you

I love it all! I miss my BFF!

Hope you all liked what Laysa gave me for Christmas. Was Santa good to you this year?

2013/11-12: November & December Favourites

Hello All,

Sorry for being away for so long. I simply didn't have anything new to share. But now I'm back with a favorites post.

Ear Ache Remedy: Saje Clear Ear tincture $14.95 at
Since cold and flu season has begun I've been getting earaches here and there. I swear this tincture works wonders and I've been using it for many years. It has never failed me.

La Senza supersoft underwear
A bit odd to share this but I must say these are the most comfortable underwear I've ever owned. I've tried many luxury brands before, but I end up going back to these.

Avia Sports Bras
Yes I did, I admit that I don't just wear them to the gym. I live in them. They work with a lot of the clothes I wear and they come in multiple colors and styles.

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter
I must say this smells like YSL Baby doll. Well it doesn't just smell nice, it moisturizes well too. The scent lingers quite a while too. So usually after application I don't need to put perfume on.

Manic Panic Semi Permanent Hair Color in Vampire Red
This hair does work on my dark brown hair, but looks rather faint. I do like how you can only see my red highlights in the bright sunlight though.

Sneaker Balls Shoe Freshener
No one wants their shoes to smell. These deodorant balls really do work. You can buy them at most shoe stores, Winners, Marshall's & TJ Maxx.

Maybelline Lipstick 160 Fifth Ave. Fuchsia
I usually wear neutral tones, but occasionally I need a pick me up bright shade. This is the one lipstick I have been gravitating to the most this past month and a half.

LaCoupe orgnx Coconut & Macadamia Oil Shampoo
LaCoupe orgnx Coconut & Macadamia Oil Conditioner
These are a great simple every day shampoo and conditioner. Free of parabens, gluten or sulfates. It moisturizes my hair and doesn't make my scalp itchy.

Blistex Lip Medex
When weather changes, I tend to have random dry patches on my lips. This lip balm is like magic, it cured my dry patches in just two days.

Geodeo deodorant in Island
This is 97% natural, works well in deodorizing, smells great and doesn't irritate my skin.

Elf Daily Brush Cleaner
Affordable and efficient reminder to clean your brushes daily. The scent is a bit of a turn off for me, but I compensate by dripping a few drops of essential oils onto the paper towel in which I am cleaning my brush with. Certain essential oils also add disinfecting properties to the cleaner.

Live Clean Green Earth Invigorating body wash with Eucalyptus
Just an every day body wash that doesn't over dry my skin or cause skin irritations.

Danier Farrah Olive Leather Bag
This lovely butter soft leather purse has been a hit in my wardrobe. I specifically bought it to match a pair of brown boots I've recently purchased. I don't like matchy matchy, so I went for the laid back look. This purse can be worn as a handbag, shoulder bag or messenger bag. I enjoy the versatility very much.

Snuggles Lavender Dryer Sheets
I can't seem to get tired of the smell of Lavender.
