2014 Blogger Kris Kringle

Kris Kringles are so much fun, aren't they? I love getting a little surprise, as well as getting something a little special for someone else.

Some lovely beauty bloggers, Jasmine of Sweetaholic Beauty, Melody of Melludee and Jennifer of QuestJen had a call out for anyone interested in participating in a Kris Kringle. I was undecided to begin with because it's harder to buy a gift for someone you have never met. 

I did end up sending an email to join in, and am so glad I did. It was a lot of fun!

I received my parcel in the mail in plenty of time before Christmas. I got as far as reading the lovely note included from the gorgeous Ash from The Beauty Collection. It was hard, but I put the parcel under the tree, determined to wait until Christmas Day.

The wait was so worth it!


I actually nearly cried when I had received the Sleek Lagoon palette and Sugarpill eye shadow, both from my wishlist! And those tiger (my fave animal!) decals are so cute!

Ash, thank you for your thoughtful gifts, I feel so spoiled xx
