Last night after our 7 hour drive home, I was so happy to drive up and see a package for me sitting outside my front door! I knew it had to be my Secret Santa gift from Tina’s gift exchange!
We had been hit with a big snowstorm, so I wasn’t surprised that the package was a little beat up. I’m just glad it wasn’t destroyed.
Even before bringing in our bags, I went upstairs to open the gift.
It was wet and I was actually able to peel open the box!
My gift was from the lovely Monique who blogs at She’s Going the Distance. Her blog is great, check it out! She has yummy recipes and cool travel talk.
Monique sent this sweet card and told me that my gift was inspired by my About me page and my trip to Italy in college. How thoughtful!
Here’s what she gave me:
Pretty blue dishtowels
Two One adorable baking dish (one broke! boo!)
The box has individual packets of dried oregano- cool, huh?
She also included a card organizer with yummy italian recipes!
A super cute mug
Ghirardelli Peppermint Chocolate coffee (which I drank this morning- YUM!)
Thank you again for the wonderful gifts Monique! I love it all!
In other news, I’m still having skin problems that I thought would be over after the summer running season. My face breakouts are still there, but I’m also getting breakouts on my back and chest. Not cool.
I decided to stock up on some new skincare products in hopes that they will help. I also know that I probably stay in my gym clothes too long after working out sometimes, so I need to get better about that.
FYI- CVS is having a buy one/get one 50% off sale on their products.
What is your winter skincare regimen?
Do you get body breakouts?
