December haul, B-Day and X-mas presents

Hello Sweeties!
How are you? My busy December did not allow me to post all the pretty gifts I got for my Bday and for Christmas, so with one month delay, here you go!
I was extremely spoiled last December! Lucky me :-D I got some super pretty presents I'm giving you just a sneak peek at those and more detailed reviews will come later.

First is these two makeup items from Dolce & Gabbana that my hubby brought me from NY out of guilt.after being absent for two weeks at the end November, he was there during Black Friday, so he got plenty of discounts. I'll leave the mystery on the eyeshadow quad and I will show you an EOTD with it later.





I got a very generous giftcard from my hubby for my b-day at Marionnaud that ended up on... drumroll: yes! a Pink Clarisonic Mia 2!


My dad-in-law gave me Rouge Coco Shine in Témeraire for my Bday, and I bought Chanel Quad Signature particulier with the black Friday huge discount. I'll show you both in detail very soon. The Chanel quad #37 Variation was another trip gift out of guilt from my hubby, this time he went to Johannesburg.

This amazing Swatch Sistem 51 Cream watch was a sponsored gift (I know!) If you are interested I will review it here too.


My bestie gave me this amazing Nuxe oil for Christmas that I Looooove.


Also for Christmas, my dad-in-law gave me a giftcard that I splurged into Enlighten Dark spot correcting night Serum from Estée Lauder. I'll review it of course, as soon as I will try it, for now I am still using the ANR from the same brand.


My hubby got my the lovely The Body Shop Frosted Plum Feel Good Tin for Christmas, everything smells absolutely delicious in there, but as they are small sizes I'll save them for my next travel in March, so I don't think I'll review them soon.



Taking advantage from the early sales in December I got this gorgeous The Body Shop Smokey Poppy set for less than half the price, and the super duper shiny Illuminating Poudre de Riz de Java from Bourjois.



I know I do not usually write about hauls or gifts I get, and seriously I don't know why, because I find it extremely fun, so I may do that more frequently. Let me know if this kind of haul post interests you and what would you like me to review first!

Life and Stuff
Last weekend was absolutely marvelous! I enjoyed every bit of it. The Christmas/anniversary present  I got for my hubby finally arrived home (they had delay on delivery) and I was so excited (more than him actually, hehe). We got a busy Saturday, but my children behaved awesomely and my little one even slept 9 hours non-stop on Sunday night! On Sunday we had a brunch at home (self shoulder patting for my delicious pancakes and chip chocolate blinis, ehem) and then had so much fun outdoors bob sliding and snowball fighting. 
Yesterday was a big day for my eldest, I since it was the inscription day for the first year of school. I can't believe it, my little guy will start school after next Summer! when did he grow up so much?  
I see my baby girl  is doing progress with her sleeping because last night she also slept 8 hours without interruptions, what a blessing! Sleeping well during the night is also helping her being on a good mood during the day, she almost hasn't cry at all. We will see how she does today at daycare. 
Me? I'm kicking in my next goal: catching-up with my blog (can't you tell?) I'm taking pics like there is no tomorrow and planning a regular schedule trying to write a few blogposts in advance, let's see how it goes!

Love,
Nati
