Goodies from my secret santa

Hi ladies,

I hope you all had a good Christmas and spent some quality time with your loved ones. Although I didn't get any more time off other than the 3-day weekend, I still feel fresh and ready to go again. As mentioned in this post, I am doing the gift exchange with 13 other petite ladies for Christmas. Tonight is the reveal night. Are you ready? My secret Santa was..................

She is one of my favorite bloggers. I seriously want to raid her closet. She is not afraid to go out of her comfort zone and make her own style. I got the package a few days before Christmas and I was thrilled. The first thing she got for me was the Romeo and Juliet military sweater jacket in size small. What I love about this sweater is the military inspired look, the olive green color and peplum hem. I don't have anything similar to this sweater so I am extremely excited to add it to my closet. Continue reading...

On a related note, is having a sale on Romeo and Juliet Couture today. The prices are up to 80% off. Smallest size available is XS as of this morning. Click here for the referral link if you need one.

Some other goodies that she got for me was the Betsey Johnson bow tights. Betsey Johnson is another brand that I do not own previously. These tights are so fun and necessary for the cold months

She also got me two pearl headbands from F21. Headband is another hair accessory that I don't own therefore I am very excited to have these. That's what I love about the petite community. I get to see what works on other petites and figure out what works for me.

The last thing she got for me was the Burt's Bees lip balm set. You can't go wrong with Burt's lip balm. They come with this cute little pouch. It definitely helps to keep them together since I loose my lip balm all the time. I love everything in my package. Thank you so much for your thoughtful gifts. I truly enjoy them.

Speaking of gifts, I also would like to thank Jessy @ The Little Dust Princess for sending me these incredible face masks. These masks come with a very thoughtful hand-written instructions from Miss Jessy :) I used one and I loved it. It was quite relaxing. If you get me hook, you have to keep sending them over my way, Jessy.

All in all, I love the petite community. Everyone is so nice and thoughtful. I've learned so much about fashion, the fit and of course the deals in the past seven month of blogging. Goodbye 2010 and welcome 2011. Thanks again for your sweet gifts. If you curious to see what the rest of the bloggers got for Christmas, click here to find out.
