Secret Santa Swap & Holiday Nails

What better way to end the week with a Secret Santa Swap & freshly manicured nails?

I signed up to be part of a Secret Santa hop hosted by Shannon, Syndal, and Kaity.
I had never done a blog secret santa swap so I thought it'd be something fun to try and I am so glad I did.
One of the lovely hosts, Syndal was paired to me!
Syndal's blog, Synfully Delicious, is adorable, and she is so creative. 
If you have the chance please go check out her space :)
You won't regret it. 

Anyways, the other day I came home to find a package on my porch.
The package being there itself wasn't weird, it was that I had no idea who it was from, and then it dawned on me!
Secret Santa blog swap time!!
I am not sure I've opened up a present that quickly with excitement in a long time!
I opened the package to find this amazing card!
I love the color of the glitter!
I can't stop looking at it.
It may or may not have to sit out on the counter longer than the Christmas season.

 Sweet note from Syndal ♥

All of my goodies :) 
Does she know me or what?

I got a really pretty blue bangle, and some stationary stuff.
Perfect for the girl who can't remember to get some things accomplished without writing them down. 

We have some Christmas cookie cutters, which I don't have and every baker should! 
Fail on my part as a baker, and super applause for Syndal :) 
A new Christmas ornament, and my guess is that Syndal made it!
A tea light candle holder.
 It's hard to see in the picture but there is a Christmas tree on it too.
Finally a little baby Santa spatula, it's too cute!

Christmas napkins :)
How cute are those, and they go perfectly with my yellow kitchen! 

Finally a new scarf.
I do not have one this color or pattern, and blue is my favorite!

Everything I received from Syndal is perfect for me!
Thank you so much Syndal for the great stuff!
I appreciate the time, effort, and dollars you put into this and I can't wait to get to know you and your blog more!


Since I got my nails done yesterday I had to show off the new holiday look.
So I'm linking up with Tara for some Nail Files fun :)

I couldn't wait to get this red glitter on my nails when I bought it, and I think it's absolutely perfect for the holidays. 

However, what I didn't realize is that I would absolutely LOVE "Head Mistress" by itself, and get a little sad when the "Leading Lady" glitter had a tint to the polish and dulled down the red underneath. I thought "Leading Lady" would be a little more sheer.
I am not disappointed, but you will be seeing "Head Mistress" again, all by herself.

PS - has anyone else noticed I tend to use color that reference being the boss lady?  
Hell no! 
Even my subconscious knows who's in charge around here ;P 
Happy Friday!
Everyone has a safe and happy Holidays!
