Blogger Christmas Cheer Exchange


Friday, December 18, 2015

A few weeks ago I signed up to be a part of a Christmas Exchange. It is a secret Santa gift exchange and an awesome way of getting to know more bloggers. I had fun getting to know the blogger that I played secret Santa for, Mattie from Northwest Native.

Last week, I received my secret Santa gift and Laura outdid herself. From the wrapping of the package and gifts, to the sweet card, she made my day. So Laura, thank you so much. I wish I would have wrapped Mattie's gifts, but I hadn't bought wrapping paper yet (I thought I had some at home already). Total blogger fail.

So without further ado, here is my secret Santa gift.


I could already smell what was in the ball package and I was very excited for to open it.


A Lush Bath Bomb was on my Christmas/Wish List. I love Lush products. From their bath bombs to their shower smoothies, this place has the most delicious smelling and feeling products. I can't wait to take a bath with my bath bomb, a glass of wine and quietness (no child around).


Santa Baby Lip Tint from Lush. I saw this when I was in their store last week and wanted to try it, but not in the tester form. The red is bright and beautiful and lasting (see below)

Funny story: I opened this and put it in my purse. On the way to work, I was blindly grabbing chapstick from my purse while waiting at a stop light. I grabbed this thinking it was normal chapstick since it is in the same container and hastily put it on. Later on while in the Starbucks drive-thru I checked my face and saw what I had done. I had it on my lips, but I had gone overboard and it was on the sides of my mouth. I kind of looked like clown.

When I got to daycare to drop my kids off, I quickly got them out of their carseats and bolted to the restroom with wipes in hand. I scrubbed the sides of my mouth and got most of it off. Luckily, I had concealer in my bag and could fix my mistake. And the rest of the day, I had gorgeous lips. Lesson learned: check to see if it is chapstick or lip tint.


These earrings were up next. I love the classic look of these and I can't wait to wear them out on date nights and to my work Christmas party tonight.

And there you have it. My Blogger Christmas Cheer Exchange. Laura, thank you so much for the thoughtful gifts and I can't wait to get to know you blogger ladies more.

  3. I've never used a Lush bath bomb before! Also I want to try that lip tint now! (But I will be wary of making sure I use a mirror!!) Those earrings are so pretty too!

    Thanks again for the gifts! I wore the scarf both Wednesday and Thursday! It is so warm. And the socks are soo soft! I need to stock up on more butter socks so I can wear them every. single. day!

    2. Haha, yes use a mirror. Don't make my mistake. It was a funny one though.

      So glad you liked your gifts! Butter socks are my favorite and the navy scarf is a staple of mine.

      I felt bad that I didn't wrap it, but so glad to know that I wasn't the only one. Gotta step up my game next time.

    1. They are like a normal bath bomb, but they smell heavenly, make your skin feel soft and handmade. So they are even better.

    1. You should check it out. We don't have one, so I either order online or wait til I am on a work trip to go shopping at night and grab whatever I need to stop up on.

  8. This was a lot of fun! And you got some really neat gifts! I need to try out more Lush products because I always see a bunch of their stuff online but never really shop there! I'm pretty sure I have done the same thing with a tinted chapstick before too, haha. Have a great weekend!

    1. I should have taken a selfie because I looked like a clown. Now I am more careful with my chapstick choice. Haha.
