~Good morning! Today was supposed to be L’s first day back to school from winter break, but he got a “Snow Day” because it’s so flipping cold here. I think the general rule is if the wind chill is below -20 degrees, they cancel. It’s just too cold for the kiddos at the bus stop and the kids who walk.
~I don’t know that I have a ton of boxes coming this week, but I am expecting bluum, For the Faithful, FrenchBox (it’s not moving yet, but from the sounds of it I am not missing anything), Hammock Pack, Hazel Lane, Kiwi Crate, Little Lace Box and Socialbliss Style Box for sure. I am really excited to see what’s in this month’s Little Lace Box! I can never guess from their themes!
~Now to the good stuff! The Oscars! I thought everyone looked fabulous! J. Lo can do no wrong in my book. She’s just absolutely stunning. I thought Anna Kendrick nailed her entire look too. She looked fantastic. I wasn’t a huge fan of Lady Gaga’s dress (and rubber gloves), but when she sang The Sound of Music? OMG. That was more than impressive. I don’t know what the “critics” are saying, but I liked Neil Patrick Harris. The opening number was awesome. And I laughed at the tighty whities. I thought it was a great show. A little long of course, but that’s normal.
~All recent Giveaway (Valentine’s Giveaway, Random Acts of Kindness, Birchbox Liptastic Kit, etc) winners have been e-mailed and are posted on the original giveaway page(s). I am hoping to hear back from everyone by tomorrow so I can get all the prizes in the mail. I’ll have another giveaway up soon too (not sure what it’ll be yet), so if you didn’t win this round, there will be more chances!
~The Beauty Event is going on at Neiman Marcus right now, so if you are running out of one of your favorite products and need to restock, it’s time! You get a free tote + samples if you spend $125+ and individual brands also have free gifts if you purchase a certain amount from them. There are gifts from La Mer, Bobbi Brown, Nars, Tata Harper, Clinique, Glamglow, Orla Keily – pretty much everyone. Make sure you go through ebates to get your 8% cash back too!
