It Feels Like Christmas!

Gosh, imagine how overwhelming it is to come home and find a pile of not one, not two and not even three but four packages waiting to be ripped open. My much anticipated US swap package from Grace finally arrived and there was an early birthday surprise love package from Tine! The other two packages were from sponsors for reviews which I won't reveal here but you'll know when I finally use them.

Read on for the details...

Tine was very sweet to remember my birthday and she sent me a lovely card with her iconic cherry blossoms. The package was filled with Australian goodies:
  • Lucas' Papaw Ointment
  • Australis Creme Colour for Cheeks & Lips in Dusty Rose
  • Face of Australia Liquid Lines Metallic Eyeliner in Purple Fusion
  • Frizz Ease Hair Serum
  • L'Occitane Shower Cream
  • Moxie Panty Liners -- the tin box is to die for!
