My Birthday Gift Card

Do you all remember how I got that Sephora gift card from my boss for my birthday? Yes, that was six months ago.

I finally spent it last week.

I was just having a terrible time deciding what to get, because they sell so much. I finally decided on two things (it's amazing how fast a $50 gift card can go in that store).

Well, actually three things, but one of them is this fancy lip salve that I got for my Secret Santa at work, so it doesn't count.

I got this "complexion enhancer" called High Beam from Benefit. Basically it's like a highlighting cream/liquid. And I'm a big fan of using highlighting makeup on my cheek bones - enhances my bone structure, you know. I've used it a few times now, and I really like it!



And I bought this bath set by Philosophy. I actually already have way too much bath stuff around here, so I usually don't buy bath sets, but I couldn't resist this one, because it smells so good.



It's called Gingerbread Girl. I usually don't like things that are gingerbread scented, I think because they smell too much like something I want to eat. But this gingerbread scent is more like a floral with a hint of ginger - and it actually reminds me a bit of eggnog. I love eggnog. That's a really weird description, but it's not overwhelmingly like eggnog - just enough to make you think "Christmas!"

It's a winner, trust me. Every time I use it, I feel like Christmas.

I'm quite happy with my purchases, and I finally used my gift card! That thing was burning a hole in my wallet for months . . .

I am the same way..I love Sephora but everytime I go in there or have a gift card I can't decide because there is so much so I never end up getting anything. I totally want to try the High beam stuff..thanks for sharing :)

I may be the worst at spending gift cards. I still have $60 on a Macy's gift card from last Christmas. Yikes! It's not that I couldn't spend it...I just can't DECIDE! :) Glad you got some goodies for yourself! Love that you feel like Christmas...great thought this time of year!

I love Sephora! I can see why you would have a hard time deciding what to buy, though. That bath set sounds amazing.
