Happy December Eve!

Can y'all believe it's Christmastime? I simply can't, but I'm sooooo excited!

Overall, Thanksgiving went well! My dressing was dry (inside family joke--but it also was legitimately dry), but other than that, we had FUN. Now, I've decked my halls, I'm feeling extra jolly, Hallmark Christmas movies are on continuously and I'm ready to celebrate Sweet Baby Jesus' birthday.

This evening, I wanted to share with y'all my new favourite makeup! This past summer, one of my best friends, Taylor, came for a visit before we moved. She is one of the most thoughtful, creative and talented people I know. She puts Martha Stewart to shame! For this visit, she brought me a "goodie bag" containing many of her favorite things. Taylor knows how much ELC and I LOVE mascara and she gifted me the one she thinks is simply the best! It was Tarte's "Tarteiest." I had heard of Tarte before but had never purchased any of their products. Lo and behold, you can imagine my surprise and joy when, as I was looking at the packaging, I noticed it was labeled: GLUTEN-FREE. What the what? YIPPEE! ELC and I are always searching for safe products Little Leighton can use. We have to make sure EVERYTHING is GF. Right down to chapsticks, lipsticks, lipglosses. Taylor blessed me so much that day--and not just with wonderful (GF!) treats but her amazing friendship. I am so thankful for her.

After that visit, I started researching Tarte and learned all of their products are GF. Double YIPPEE! On a recent trip to the mall (in search of blingy hi-tops for LL), we stopped into Sephora and I purchased this:

It's a Tarte set that includes mascara, lipgloss, eyeliner, tons o' eyeshadows, blush, bronzer and highlighter. It's packaged BEAUTIFULLY and is genuinely amazing. Other than needing brushes, I use only this set now--it's so "complete!" It was about $60, and I think it would make an awesome Christmas gift for someone. (My pictures don't do the eyeshadow colors justice--they are so pretty.)

I hope y'all have a wonderful and festive weekend! Next time I post, I'm bringing back one of my infamous lists--per ELC's request! Stay tuned, Readers.
