Non-Blogger Present Showcase

I wanted to do a post another post about the Christmas love packages that I received from blogger/twitter friends but it seems that I accidently deleted my photos and I already put everything together in one area. I'm hoping that I can separate and reconstruct who gave me what but if I can't, I'm so sorry to everyone that sent me love packages. Please know that I appreciated everything that you all gave me.

For today's post, I wanted to share with you beauty-related presents that I received from family/friends that don't blog.

From one good friend, I received MOR Neroli Clementine Hand & Body Wash and Hand & Body Lotion.

I have never seen this brand before so I am excited to try this out later and will definitely do a review on them.

From Mai (okay, she's supposed to be the co-blogger of this blog but it's rare that she comes on) I was stunned by her gift to me. She gave me the Clarisonic Mia in the color Berry.

I have the Clarisonic Plus but was thinking about the Mia, which I think might be more convenient for traveling purposes.

From the husband, I'm actually quite surprised by his gift. He gave me a gift card to Sephora! 

I guess he's realized just how much into makeup I've gotten into and has given me something that I know I will make good use out of. In fact, he's been anxiously asking me every week since Christmas if I've gone shopping at Sephora yet.

As you get older, you get less and less presents. This year the presents that I did receive were awesome. Not that I don't receive wonderful presents every year but this year's gifts really are reflective of my interest in the past year or so.

You're welcome!!...even though my gift to you was super small. :3

Ooh! The MOR lotion bottles look so pretty! I love the gold printing/fan design. Looking forward to your review!

And yay for the Mia! I was kind of thinking of getting this...but opted to not for now just because of the price. ><

@tiffyama--No gift is ever too small, although gifts can be too lavish, IMHO.

I just discovered that there's a Mia 2 now, which has two speeds. I didn't check the price out but am wondering if this will bring down the price of Mia 1.

@Jamilla--I know! Mai was too kind but she said that it's for everything that I've done for her--she's had a rough time for a few years now. I have the Clarisonic Plus and love it so I'm sure that the Mia will be instant love too.

@evie--I've been reading good things about MOR brand so I'm looking forward to trying these two things out.

@Blair--Pls let me know if I can help CP it for you. I'd be happy to.

@Yumeko--Thank you! Yes, I was surprised by how he really put a lot of thought into this year's gift. He and I admit that the best present was the one he gave me a couple of years ago. That was my kitten, now cat, Hime chan.
