Have A Very Merry Giveaway Winner!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays lovelies!! Can you believe that Christmas is finally here? December has positively FLOWN by and I cannot believe that the new year will be here in just a week. Seriously, where did the time go? Now, before I announce the winner, I want to take a moment to apologize for not posting this days ago like I was supposed to; I got caught up in the hubbub of doing last minute things and time was just utterly lost.

I know you've all been waiting and so without further ado, the winner of my holiday giveaway is.....

Erica of Diary Of A Trendaholic!

I want to thank every single one of you who entered, this giveaway had the largest number of entries yet at twenty-three! I guess you all really love hot cocoa huh? Everyone who entered left beautiful comments and they were all wonderful but, Erica's really stood out to me and touched my heart because I'm currently dealing with a loss of my own. Earlier in the year, as you may have seen, I lost one of my furbabies, Papa. This is the first Christmas in eleven years that he's not here and for me it is extremely bittersweet. That's why I would like to give a hug to everyone reading this right now, if you've dealt with a loss or are currently going through it, I know how it is, some days I barely feel like myself but, just build a support system and surround yourself with your loved ones and before you know it, you'll be back to yourself again.

Much love xo

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

I know I'm posting this extremely late and we've all opened presents, eaten, and gotten ready for bed but I still wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and to thank you for all the support that you've given me throughout the year. This year has flown by so fast but through it all, you've been amazing and your comments, emails, and feedback are what keep this blog alive. I hope that you all had a wonderful day!

I will be announcing the winner of my holiday giveaway directly after this so, if you would like to see if you've won, stay tuned and if you want to see a post on what I received for Christmas, comment below and I will have that up in a couple of days.

Much love xo

MAC Heroine Lipstick Available Now Online!

If you follow MAC via social media, chances are you've heard the news by now but, for those that haven't, one of MAC's most famous lipsticks is not only making a much needed and wanted comeback, it is now slated to join the permanent line! I'm talking about the gorgeous, in your face violet known as Heroine. This lipstick made its first debut with MAC's Reel Sexy collection last year and made another appearance in April of this year with Fashion Sets. I think I can speak for most of us when I say, we definitely haven't gotten our fill of this shade yet! Luckily, she's back just in time for the holidays.

Ulta Under $30 Holiday Gift Guide

The countdown officially begins and we now have less than two weeks before Christmas (is it just me or does December 1st seem like it was just yesterday?) but, if you're anything like myself, you're still in the midst of holiday hubbub and shopping. We all know that sometimes curve balls can be thrown our way so what happens when you've picked out the ultimate gift for someone and it sells out? Or maybe you just have that one person in your life that is almost impossible to shop for, yet you want to give them more than a gift card? While gift cards are wonderful and they are the safest route, I'm sure we all enjoy personally picking out gifts and watching our loved ones faces light up.

To ease the mountain of stress that is holiday shopping, I've created two gift guides (Ulta & Sephora) for the beauty lover in your giftee (and yourself!). My goal was to not only provide a list that was wallet friendly but to also find products that provided a lot of options and that's why 90% of this list are sets, that way not only does this usually mean greater savings but this way, your giftee is bound to find something that they love.

As always, before giving any gifts, especially food items, make sure that the person receiving your present isn't allergic to certain ingredients. We all want to surprise our loved ones but not at the cost of a hospital visit, when in doubt, always ask!

Keep in mind that A LOT of the items on this list are on sale right now but I've listed the non sale prices.

Ulta $5.00 off $10.00 coupon

Have A Very Merry Giveaway! (CLOSED)

It seems like only yesterday that the warm weather was here and in the blink of an eye, we've gone from enjoying the sun to clutching our coats, digging our boots out of the closet, and watching the first flakes of snow fall. It's that time of year again lovelies! A time for warmth, family, delicious food, lights, and all things peppermint. It's holiday time!

As a thank you to all of my readers, I have decided to host my first ever holiday giveaway! It is the least I can do for all of you who take the time to visit my blog, read my ramblings, leave comments and give me feedback. Your support means the absolute world to me! And let's be honest, who doesn't enjoy an extra little treat under the tree? So to all of my readers I say Good Luck, Happy Holidays, and don't fret if you don't win; I will be having plenty of giveaways in the coming new year!

The Goodies

One reader will receive:

One full size MAC Fix + Spray

One Starbucks Hot Cocoa + Travel Thermos Set

+ One mystery prize!

Since this is a beauty blog, I picked one of my favorite makeup sprays. This stuff is a great multi-purpose product for me; I use it to do everything from spraying on brushes to use my shadows in wet form to refreshing my skin on a hot day.

Also, since it is wintertime and most of us are craving hot drinks; I've included a neat little Starbucks set with hot cocoa and a thermos, perfect for cuddling up on the couch or taking your drink on the go. (That sounded incredibly commercial like but, you get what I mean).

What is the mystery prize you ask? It's a mystery, why would I tell you? If you win, you'll have to wait and see!
