Merry Christmas From Makeup and Beauty Blog

Published in: Just For Fun


Merry Christmas! πŸ™‚ Ya know one of my fave things about the holidays?? Breakfast on Christmas morning. My dad makes a huge pot of coffee, we warm up leftovers from our Christmas Eve feast, and then we all sit around the table in our pajamas playing with our new toys.


At this very moment, El Hub and I are on the road heading up to Redding, which is up near the Oregon border (I’m actually writing this post from my phone…the wonders of technology!). Hope you’re having a very Merry Christmas.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

      Hi Agata,

      Merry Christmas to you too! How are you spending the day? We will be spending the day with El Hub’s family just chilling out.

      • Agata says:

        Today I am at home with my husband. I Skyped with my family in Poland and am just relaxing πŸ™‚ Guess what my husband got me though?? Chanel loose powder πŸ™‚

        • Karen says:

          Isn’t technology amazing? We used Google talk last night to see my niece in the Philippines. It makes it so much easier to stay in touch over the holidays. Did you get to see most of your family during the Skype call? I hope so.

          Yay for your hubby getting you Chanel! What a sweet gift. Have you tried it on yet? If you happen to have NARS tinted moisturizer around the two look amazing together.

          I’m writing this comment from the road, btw. We are still in the car and I’m starting to go a little stir crazy!!

          • Agata says:

            I didn’t get to see them but I agree, I don’t know what I’d do without technology. My mom was bummed because she sent me a Christmas package and it didn’t get here on time πŸ™ I got one from my sister though- with like 10 different skin care products from Vichy πŸ™‚ Best sister ever!

          • Karen says:

            That is AWESOME! I wish my brother would give me skincare for Christmas. I’ve heard Vichy has great creams, especially.

    Merry Christmas, Karen. Your family celebrations look so relaxed and happy, I love it. After losing a family member earlier this month, I’m very much feeling that presents and little stresses are nothing – it’s all about loved ones – family, partners, friends and pets – and creating things – a home, a life, happiness. You should be proud of creating something, your website, that makes lots of people happy, me included. Thank you πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Susan,

      I’m very sorry for your loss and I hope that you and your family have found ways to cope and recover. Sending you a big virtual hug. πŸ™‚

      P.S. This comment was so sweet. Thank you!
