Happy Haulidays: A Gigantic Collective Haul!


Happy belated holidays! Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas spent with family, friends and lots of good food! I spent my Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with family and friends as I do every year and boy, am I spent. I really feel like I'm 20 going on 50 sometimes! That being said, it's a good kind of exhaustion and I'm ready to get back into the regular pace of things.

This post features a somewhat hefty number of beauty bits that I've been hauling since November and right up until Christmas. I did receive some Christmas gifts that were beauty related but will be posted sometime in January. Since I have so many products to introduce to the blog, I'm simply going to list the names of the products I picked up. Watch the video at the end of the video to hear more about each product and why I bought them!

    1. I'm actually really enjoying the Maybelline BB Cream and will do a before and after post on it. Surprisingly, I don't use a lot of my new products much around this time since I usually have to carefully photograph and swatch everything before I allow myself to use them! It's been really hectic with school, work and just holiday festivities so not much time to play with new beauty products!
