Housewarming Gifts, Package in the Mail, and Freebies

Hello Everyone!


Some of you may remember that I just moved about two months ago. Two of my friends decided to get me housewarming gifts. Thanks again ladies for the lovely gifts!

Side Note you may have seen these items already if you follow me on Instagram and Facebook.

1. Housewarming:

-  The Cellar Whiteware Cereal Bowl



These bowls are so nice and sturdy! I love the classy white color and gloss finish.

-  Bath and Body Works 3 Wick Candles and Gentle Foam Hand Soap.


Both of these scents smell amazing! I can see Peach Bellini being a Summer favorite of mine.

2. Package in the Mail:


I had absolutely no luck in finding Maybelline's The Smokes or The Brights Palette. However, my dear friend Ashley found them and sent the palettes to me! I want to thank Ashley again for sending such a lovely gift! She was even kind enough to send me some yarn and a card too! So stay tuned for an upcoming post on those Maybelline Palette reviews and some crocheting projects!

3. Here are two freebies that I received

- Yankee Candle Large Jar Sweet Apple Candle



I don't have too many Yankee Candles, but this candles smells so good, it reminds me of candied apples. This puts me in the mind of being at the fair. Is it weird that I don't eat candied apples, but love the scent of them lol. I let this candle burn for at about 6 hours and the throw is just ok. You can smell the scent up close, but not at a distance. I haven't given up on Sweet Apple just yet though. I think this candle was an exclusive in Europe.

- MAC Relentlessly Red  (Retro Matte) Lipstick


This beautiful bright tomato red lipstick is perfect for Spring and Summer

I love those cereal bowls! And I'm so happy I could find those palettes for you!! I hope you like them!
I usually like yankee candles but some of them the scents don't carry as well as bath and body works. And the lipstick is gorgeous!

Thanks again Ashley for package! Everything you sent is great! I can't wait to play with those palettes! Idk what's up with Yankee Candle because I noticed the candles that I have smell great on cold sniff, but the throw is very weak!

I love white dishes. After I get my kitchen remodeled, I think I'm going to convert to white. So pretty and shows off food well. BBW has the best candles. Love the selection you received. That lipstick is pretty.

Thank you! I agree white does show food off better. I noticed that when I posted some my meal meals pictures!
