Last Christmas, I wasn't able to spoil myself because I was too busy with work and hunting for presents for everybody else, so I was really thrilled to receive a variety of bath and beauty essentials to shoo away the holiday stress.

My boyfriend's mom got me a bottle of Shea Shower Cream from The Body Shop, which is perfect not only in the bath but also on the go as a hand soap--a real treat for the OC in me. As a soap-free moisturizing cleanser, it keeps my skin nice and supple. I'm also in love with its fresh, clean scent!

Luxury comes in pretty little packages like the set of Crabtree & Evelyn products in Evelyn Rose that I got from my coolest, youngest aunt! The soap, lotion, powder, and bath and shower gel in a pink pouch are total eye candy.

For natural-looking makeup, neutral pink and peach hues suit me better than downright nude shades, which is why I was so excited to add these new tubes to my makeup kit, thanks again to my aunt and my mom's godmother. Guess I'm going back to MAC and treating my lips to Dior with these babies!
It's amazing how a swipe of lippie and a quick lather of scented soap can be great pick-me-uppers! Thank you again to everyone who stuffed my Christmas stocking!
