First Christmas Haul! (decor/gifts)

Hey guys! I am starting early this year, how about you? We didn't get to put a tree up last year, so next week Im throwing it up!  This holiday season is going to be really special! First of all, we are having thanksgiving here at my house and im also going to go for a fondue/game/gift night her at my house too. That's not the only thing though....I am getting my puppy! Alex's (bff) dog Precious had her puppies and they should be ready to go a couple weeks before Christmas!! It's going to be my puppies b-day/christmas/home coming all in one and I can not tell how exited I am!

Tis the season
We went to wal-mart and here's what I purchased- not any make-up either! what kind of Bblogger am I?!?!

this beautiful baby was $2 and yes it was worth it for me lol! It's such an eye catcher, yah no? and this bulb has inspired me to create a new tradition: buy a new special bulb every year! I encourage the rest of you to do the same!

I am re-doing my tree- our tree is kinda all over the place so I wanted to center it this year by adding similar colors, and newer ornaments, & be a little matchy, matchy...not too matchy matchy tho! Dont you think these pair well with my disco ball pictured above? Oh yeah, I grabbed these for $1 at DG guys, not wal-mart

Ok so like I mentioned, I am getting my dog soon and this is her Christmas present! She will be getting plenty more, as she will have basically nothing (considering she's only been alive for 2 weeks) but I think im going to make another tradition of getting her something special every year- this is her special present. It's a charm for her necklace!....I mean her collar lol. it was around $5 

I am re-doing a desk I have for a makeup station of sorts. Her's the mirror I got for it for $10- I has 2 sides and one side is magnetized, perfect for plucking brows. 

Here's the color I am painting the desk- cant wait! I will be showing all of that stuff on my personal blog: the process and how-to's so be sure to check over there for the finished results!!

did you guys like this kinda Christmas haul? I'll be hauling and decorating many more things in the next few weeks so I think im going to do more posts like this! For decor and updates on my pastel desk re-make, check out my other/personal/non-beauty blog!

Thanks for the comment on my sigma brush post. I went back on the site to see what I really wanted/needed & it came out to 4 brushes. So thanks to you I can spend half of what I was going to pay for that whole kit.
Thank you so much Erica :)
