I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Holiday! I just wanted to share a few special gifts I received, completely out of the blue too. But first, here is my FOTD, Christmas edition:

I wore: ~Clinique Perfectly Real Foundation
~Prescriptives Site Unseen Brightening Concealer
~MAC Conjure Up Blush
~NYX Geisha and Bare Escentuals Moss e/s
~ELF Waterproof Eyeliner Pen
~MAC Teddy Eyeliner on lower lash line
~CG Lash Blast
~Stila Long Wear Lipcolor in Paramour
~All makeup set with MAC Fix+

I was so excited to get gift cards from my family, especially one for Sephora. You can never go wrong with gift cards, even though they are a bit impersonal. I am so incredibly blessed, my family spoils me! Here are my favorites:

                                                           Kirkland Signature Brushes

NARS Pleasures Of Paris!!! Ok, so this is the perfect palette.

Lovely things from my best friend. She knows me so well.

This BCBG purse was a complete surprise! It's so beautiful, it reminds me of a Chanel ;) I love the chain straps and the dove gray color.

I am still shocked by my gifts! Especially since all I really wanted was a gift card to the local mall ;) Were any of you surprised with a special gift this year?
