I’m sure it is safe to assume that December is a busy month for us all. During the beginning of the month I spent time getting ready for Christmas and taking Mom for her 8 week check-up after breaking her hip. Results indicated that her hip was healing well and she was finally allowed to move around more. She wasn’t allowed out of the house from the time she returned home from the hospital until her appointment at the beginning of December, so you can rest assured that she took advantage of finally being able to get around again.
Since she was doing well I ended up going back to my adult home (I always refer to home as where I grew up) and attended my boyfriends Christmas party, semi-decorated the house (we spent Christmas with my mom) and caught up on some cleaning. This still didn’t leave much time for blog posts by the time I received my Ipsy bag. However, I figured I would share it with you all now 🙂
The theme for December was….. You are a Fearless Heroine!
Our thoughts are filled with YOU this month. Thank you for a 2014 filled with beauty, laughter and inspiration. You’ve given us so many reasons to smile, and we look forward to an awesome 2015. xoxo, Ipsy
Well Ipsy… I’m hoping this is an awesome 2015 as well. There are so many things I’d love to accomplish this year. Let’s hope that is possible. Nonetheless right now one thing that is possible is sharing the goodies from the month of December with you beauties!
Precision Beauty Eyelash Curler
**This is a full-sized product**
This Stylish Eyelash Curler firmly catches each lash at the root for beautifully lifted and intensified curls. Easy to control handle and broad-shaped curve ensures that you get the perfect curl while preventing pinching. Always use a mirror while using eyelash curler. Curl eyelashes before applying mascara. Wipe clean after each use.
And it is metallic purple… how cute! I’ve never used an eyelash curler before (and to be honest I’m afraid to) but I’ll probably give it a shot. What do I have to lose? (Other then my eyelashes…. eyelid…..eyeball… haha)
