Blogger’s Secret Santa 2012

Posted on: December 27, 2012

Some of you may have noticed the Blogger’s Secret Santa icon on my blog page. I signed up to be a part of this years Secret Santa. It was for bloggers only and the idea was to send something nice to your chosen person for around £10 or $16. It was cheap and cheerful, just like me and I enjoyed being a part of. The Secret Santa was hosted by Erin at 365 make up, a big Thank You to Erin.

🚑 When my mailman first showed up today, the only thing she brought was a jury summons. Every January for the past 6 years I get picked? I have a theory about that, but I won’t go into here. A few minutes later she came back with a package. It had a customs form on it. I’ve been expecting a package from my friend Diana, who lives in London. But to my surprise, it was from my Secret Santa.


I am so excited by the presents my Secret Santa sent! She sent me a bottle of butter London Brummie, vibrant purple. Looks similar to Play Date from Essie, but richer, deeper purple. I don’t have anything like this color!


Gosh!. I love this brand, I have a couple of bottles, but nothing like these colors. They are gorgeous colors and I can’t wait to wear. I don’t know which one I’ll try first. I may have to do one of my half & half manis for these. On the left is the color Drizzle and on the right, Fossil Grey. I don’t have anything like these. Drizzle is a muted green, OPI Thanks a Windmillion, from their Holland collection is similar. The Gosh polish has a bit of a darker vein running through it. I hope you can see in the photo.

I just painted my nails with Estée Lauder Black Sapphire, but I’m going to paint them with one, or both of the Gosh.

She also sent a nice size tube of spa H2O hand and nail cream. I put some on and it smells great. The formula sinks right in and left my hands feeling soft. I have been shaking and squeezing in my tube of Barrielle hand and nail cream, so this was perfect timing!

👼 I want to give a big Thank You to Shayna at ThePolishJinx for sending my Secret Santa presents. You did good! 💅 😍 💓 🎄 ⛄
I don’t know if I’m allowed to reveal who my person I sent presents for, so I will hold off until further notice. It wasn’t Shayna, I know she’s waiting for her package. It will be fun to see everyone’s posts about this years Blogger’s Secret Santa!

Did you participate in a Secret Santa this year? I think they are always F-U-N!!

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

I forgot to mention these nail prints in a pretty, festive gold foil. These will be great for New Year’s Eve. I will have fun playing with these, because I’ve never tried these before. And they are pretty! 🙂

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
