Muchas Gracias Gracia!!!

** Peace Gracie for calling you Gracia! I tried so hard to think of a Spanish translation hahaha **


I have kept in touch with the Glitz-y and Glamorously Gracie for months. We found ourselves chatting about anything that we could think of and just laugh our asses off!!! (trust me, you don't want to know what we talk about lol) I felt so comfortable talking to her as she's a true person...anyways, this is not about rubbing elbows but all I want to say, again and again that blogging is the most wonderful thing that happened to me because I've been chatting with people from all parts of the world and learn so much from them and nurtured friendship with a lot of my fellow bloggers and readers (you gals know who you are)

I have NEVER expected anything but friendship!

But people can be super generous!

I got a surprise package this lazy Friday morning.... I can't guess the handwriting as it was typewritten, I tried guessing who's it from, but no return address... (I felt so stupid coz I should have seen the stamp on the upper right side --- but you can't blame someone who just woke up right? lol)



The funny thing is, I am usually impatient when it comes to packages and I would usually open it up at once! But today is different, I played a mini game and took a shower, had breakfast (took my time) but all these time going crazy guessing who's it from! LOL I should just have opened it right? Can't blame a girl for being.....weird? hahaha (You don't have the right to agree! :P)

I kinda remembered Gracie telling me an Advance Christmas gift she will be sending me, but I would never thought of it as this one as she sent it to me just last Thursday! Oh well, I did a good guess though coz when I opened up the envelope...here's what greeted me....

I can see the wonderful design!!!

I think I may be right!





I can't believe this! I am finally owning my OWN Urban Decay Palette. We don't have Urban Decay here in the Philippines so reading this from other bloggers and just looking and staring at their photos, and this time, I am touching it!!! I am in HEAVEN! Well Make-Up Heaven!

Gracie is so sweet because she told me this palette reminded her of ME because of the lovely pop up butterflies! Girl!!! I can't help but blame you because I am starting to look like I've lost a couple of screws as I kept on flipping this palette....as many times as I blink!

    Fuz, indeed it is :) and i love it that they make it look so pretty!

    Nanzy, thanks sis!!! :) I am touched ...really for someone to think of me!

    Jesmakeup, surprisingly, most free brushes doesn't work well, but for this, I've used the blending brush to create the look and the eyeshadow brush is lovely as well, its not too short and not too long, just the right travel size :)

    Yumyumsushi, thanks for sweet words, the only Urban Decay product I've tried is their Primer potion, never tried their e/s so this is something refreshing

    Lydia, thanks! :)

    Sab, dont' worry, lol I had the shots up close, I did the blurry photo on purpose :)

    Mary, thanks, I am surprised green is the color that compliments my skin, I really try to make pink suits me, but it really can't! hehehe
