before you ask, "wtf?"

I view makeup from the perspective of a painter. Whether a look is practical or not does not matter to me. What does matter is the skill or technique you learn from creating a look. I am not a professional, a guru, or whatever else. I am simply an art student exploring the world of makeup.

Christmas Continued

Okay so now that I'm well's what I got.

First, a lovely hello kitty blanket! You'll see this in the rest of the pictures :) so soft.

So next was a huge box filled with VS Pink undies! I once told my ex boyfriend that the best gift you could give a girl is underwear. It's true for me, at least. Anyway, this little stuffed dog came with the underwear and will have to satisfy your curiosity. Sorry, I just don't feel the need to post pictures of my underwear on here.

Call me crazy.

One of my favorite things this year to receive was this MAC Cool Capers pigment set. Honestly, I will probably be wearing these colors every day this week. For girls with pale skin, this combination of colors is ESSENTIAL! However, I could definitely see women of color wearing the hell out of these colors as well. It's a fun set that can look great on anyone

Ah...the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual. I am so thankful to receive this as a gift. Honestly, it is one of the best makeup books I've seen. It covers absolutely every facet of makeup from the very basics of application, to breaking into the business as an artist. I'm going to be learning a lot from reading this, hopefully. Anybody else read this yet? Let me know what you think!

Now this is a bag by Coach that I picked up awhile back. It was originally like....$250+? I honestly can't remember the exact price. But I got it for somewhere in the ballpark of $50! Amazing deal! The picture really doesn't do it much justice, as it is a really beautiful purse.

Harro Kittay!

Also known as "Hello Kitty". This is just something sweet that my mom picked up for me. I absolutely adore anything hello kitty, and this one has always caught my eye at the store. It is SO SOFT, guys!

On the topic of hello kitty, here is something very special that my mom picked up for me as well. The story behind this is sort of funny, actually.

I live near a CCO, and when this came in I just died. I hadhadhad to have it! It was $60 though, and my birthday was coming up so I showed it to my mom. Her reaction? She bought the only remaining one in our skintone for herself. Oh, I was pissed. You can absolutely believe I was pissed. My birthday came and went and still no hello kitty compact. Well, my mom must have stopped by again since my birthday and saw that they stocked more of these! She picked one up and the rest is history.

Lush, you say?
This is absolutely nothing compared to what I picked up today, lol. Did you know that Lush has killer after christmas sales? I stumbled in and walked out with $60 worth for $20. Anyway, back to the goodies. My brother actually picked these up for me :)
he got my the Gnome Name bubble bar and the Up You Gets emotibomb. I used the latter today and it was great!!

Here are some Coach earrings that my mom got for me. Ummm I don't know what else to say? They're just these really cute gold hoops with little inlaid c's. They look classic but somewhat edgy at the same time, which I find interesting.

Now this was my "big" present this year: a Tiffany key. I got the 2.5" oval key with the oval chain. I love it! It just looks so great with everything. I wore it today over a very plain grey long sleeved tee and it made my outfit much more interesting and pretty.

It's a spud gun....not much else to say.

And here's another present from my brother. Lol, the Family Guy star wars special. My family watched this last night and it was just hysterical! Family Guy seems to always get it right. :)

And that is basically it! Wanna see my huge Lush haul? That is coming!
