My goodies from Cynthia included Almay makeup eraser sticks, Burt's Bees lip balm, and a pretty beaded bracelet. Thank you, Cynthia! This is perfect! I haven't tried the eraser sticks yet but they'll be great for on-the-go raccoon eye fixing and the lip balm gives just the right amount of color without any stickiness.
In case you're wondering, I drew Lor from Petite in the City. Check out her blog if you'd like to see what I got her :)
I also received some goodies from Jean of Extra Petite and Annie of Really Petite. These beautiful ladies have amazing blogs (the first ones I started following) and were among the first to welcome me to the blogging community. Thank you gals for being so sweet and thoughtful! <3
Beauty goodies (can't wait to try them!) and trim for Baby / Toddler crafting projects (perfect for my scrapbooking and shadow boxes!) from Jean.
A beautiful orange striped LOFT sweater from Annie (it was like she read my mind - stripes AND orange!) that I wore the first chance I got :)
Sweater: LOFT Stripe Button Down Back Sweater, XSP, gift from the lovely Annie
Shirt: J. Crew Crewcuts Boys' Button-Down in Large Gingham, Sz 14
Necklace: J. Crew Resin and Chain Link Necklace, Navy Blue
Skirt: J. Crew Bell Skirt, Sz 2
Shoes: Tory Burch Afrikan Reva Ballerina Flat in Razor Blue
I forgot to take a picture of my bag with the outfit! This is a late birthday present from Hubby (not his fault, I took 2 months trying to figure out what I wanted) - a Rebecca Minkoff MAC Clutch in Stone with gunmetal hardware. I LOVE it! It is the perfect size for toting around my essentials and can be carried cross-body - a must for coordinating the kiddos.
If you're wondering how the Revas are doing in my breaking in process, I found the perfect shoe stretchers on accident last week. Cardboard inserts that came with my Dansko clogs! My problem areas are the back elastic and the pinky toe area. This insert is helping stretch those for me and it's making a big difference.
Whew, that was a long post from me :) Hope everyone has a wonderful and happy new year!!
