To my great surprise, I woke up this morning to an email from April at A Pretty Wardrobe letting me know I won her giveaway. How exciting is that!! It was definitely a surprise to see that message in my inbox :) Now I can't say that I never win anything!
I recently linked up with Carissa over at Vanilla Crush to do a beauty swap and my package came on Saturday! My sister grabbed the mail before I could get to it and was trying to snoop in my package. I just about freaked out with excitement. I sent Carissa a few things that she can't get in the UK, and she sent me some lovely things that we don't have here in the states! I got a lot of great things from MUA, Collection 2000, and the Body Shop among others. I haven't been able to try everything, but I will post more about that later since I am at work (blah)
One of the things I love to do in my free time is read. I'm a total nerd, I know, but I love it! I really like mysteries and thrillers, but I have a soft spot for Harry Potter (obviously) and a few other fantasy-like stories. I will admit that I read all the Twilight books (and the books are soooooo much better than the movies) but I can't say that I have an obsession with the whole vampire-werewolf schtick. I did happen to pick up a new book at Target on Sunday called A Discovery of Witches and the storyline is similar (there are witches and vampires and daemons) and I am LOVING it! I haven't finished it yet, though, so I can't say for sure whether I will continue reading the series (it is the first book in the All Souls Trilogy).
Update #4Not really an update so much, but a few of the girls whose blogs I read have recently become engaged. I just wanted to say congratulations to all of them and wish them luck and happiness as they start to plan their weddings!!! With Valentine's Day being tomorrow I am hoping that everyone has someone special to share it with :)
