Happy 2012 everyone! I love the beginning of the new year. It feels full of potential and excitement. Like a package waiting to be opened. And if any of you know me, you KNOW I love packages. I think it’s 1) Why I love the US Postal Service so much, and 2) Why I online shop so much. I have an unnatural love of the US Postal Service, and lately most of my shopping has been done online. I like the excitement of seeing a box in front of your door, just waiting to be opened.
Speaking of which…I got some pretty great ones before the year ended. The first one came from a wonderful friend of mine, Michael, and I’m not gonna lie, it was one of the best gifts I opened this Christmas!
Look at all the wonderful home-made goodies it was filled with!! Pistachio ginger biscotti! Pumpkin coconut macaroons! Spiced cocoa!!! And if you promise not to tell anyone I’ll let you in on a little secret. I was a huge fatty and ate them almost all at once!!! It was delicious! As it should be – Michael is quite talented – he’s currently a pastry cook at a restaurant in New York. I’d tell you which one, but I don’t know if he needs me blabbing his personal information out there for the world!!
The other great package I got the same day was the new Naked2 palette! I have the original Naked eyeshadow palette, and I use it ALL the time. It’s so great – I’ve never been a blue or green or any of those fun colored eye shadow kinda girls. I’m kind of a fuddy duddy. But these are so pretty! This is the original:
And here is the Naked2 Palette…more gorge’ and more ‘mazing
I think I might even like this palette more than the original! The colors to me seem a little more pink-y which I think tends to be better for my coloring…and frankly, well I like pink. (And if you didn’t see that coming, well you should just stop reading this blog, because you’re obviously not even paying attention…)
Anywho, I did a skin palette so you can see the colors on skin, and see a comparison of the two palettes:
Some of the colors are so sheer you almost can’t see them! Which is AWESOME!! I love these palettes!!
See. Packages are awesome.
