Wrapping Christmas Cheer

Totally shocked and saddened.

One of America's sweethearts has left us to go and fly with the angels.

Rest In Peace Brittany Murphy.

You will truly be missed.


Hopefully you've gotten all of your Christmas shopping done because the daily fiasco of gift hunting just gets more hectic as the time creeps closer to that special day! If you don't do well in crowds, shop online. I may consider that option next year since the annoyance of sweaty, panting gift givers has gotten rather close to my extreme level of irritation. Then again, I would hate to miss out on all the experience...that's Jerrid's main thing. The experience is all that matters to him, which is cute.

We've been scoping out the Santa's at each mall. We plan to get JJ's pictures taken with Santa, but an unhappy Santa with a yellow beard won't do. I clearly know my baby will be pulling on his beard, without the intention of revealing the fact that this Santa Clause is not the real deal, but rather because he is a bruiser, he leaves battle wounds! Poor Santa...but I still want him to look presentable and smile like a cheeser when I pay that money for those pics.

Or maybe Santa can take a tip or two from me! I've had my days as the cheery ol' fella, but my gift passing days are over and the saliva just doesn't stick the plastic bag onto my upper lip like it used to.


I got all the wrapping done tonight. Hopefully everyone likes everything. Unwrapping the gift makes it feel so much more worthy...Santa dropped it off and it was wrapped by the elves!

From Santa

I hope you all can bare with me. The makeup posts have come to a sever slow down, but they will resume as normal as soon as the holidays are over. It's been a hectic time for me, and I'm sure its been a hectic time for you, so you totally understand since we are all floating in the same boat down the candy cane river.

Polyvorin' again...it becomes quite the boredom kryptonite.

Happy Nude Year

Ring in the New Year with neautral nude,
don't shine through your dress, but rather your 'tude.
Captivate the room with your face and cheer.
Holler and dance when '10 you hear.
Match the bubbly by the waist,
and drink it down to New Years taste!

Enjoy your holidays and I hope you get all the things on your wish lists!

  4. that pic of you is hilarious! haha! and I agree, Santa needs to be ON POINT for JJ's first pic with Santa. Happy holidays to you and your beautiful family!

  5. Sooo cute! Great post, chica! I have some of the same wrapping paper (which I'm in total love with this year, lol). Polyvorin is the best :)
    I too have been soooo busy that I can't keep up with my posts :(

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! (Everyone will LOVE their gifts, I promise, it's the intent that really counts!)

  6. I was seriously shocked when I heard about Brittany Murphy's death. I loved her spunky personality. Have you ever seen the movie 'Ramen Girl'? It was a cute movie she was in that took place in Japan. Not a lot of people have heard of it.

    LOL at your picture of you with a beard! It looks so... natural? Ha ha ha!

    You'd look stunning in the outfit you created on Polyvore! I am addicted to that site, too! It's like window shopping online.

    Happy Holidays to you and your family!


  7. I always look forward to your posts, even if its not about makeup! You did a great job packing all the gifts. I spent four hours in mall traffic yesterday just to try to finish my Christmas shopping. But then again DC area always has hours of traffic, regardless of whether its the holidays or not.

    Anyway, I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas! Thanks for blogging :))

  8. Happy Holidays

    So sad to see Murphy go.
